Enjoy and be Happy in our House of Love
I enjoyed my time in Ubud greatly, and the Villa, though very rustic, was comfortable. There is lots of room for guests, including many beds and mats to sleep on so my group was very comfortable. The pool was also very enjoyable and Elly was very helpful at coordinating late night airport transportation (highly recommended as the villa would have been very hard to find and identify at night). The place is also very well located for Ubud.
Unfortunately, there is currently VERY loud construction happening right next door that made sleeping hard at night. Additionally, we could not lock any doors in the house, which was a little disconcerting.
see below my yet unanswered email to the house owner on our stay at the house.
Hi Elly, we left The house already after 2 nichts. It was not possible to arrange for hot water (my indonesian is fluent, so it was not due lack of communications), which was a no go for our kids and baby. I also expected somehow a gas stove if you put in kitchen as description. Last but not least, the noise from the dogs steals your sleep. We like to spend money on the accomodation but the house rssp the services just really underdeliver. The Ibu provided also breakfast. To be paid. Again a small misunderstamding from your house description?
It was just a big disappointment and out of touch with the house description. It is a nice house but being left alone it just decays... Like The dove nests in the roof and the corresponding shit in the floor.
I would expect to have my money returned.
We are very sorry about the bird nests and the inconvenience of it. I checked the lady that maintains the house and she said that she took it right away already but probably the birds came back. She did not have the chance to talk to the guests because they had left the other morning. Because Luca says h speaks Indonesian, I sent him my communication with this lady in Indonesian so he could read all that we disussed about the matter.
I feel sorry for the fact that the noise of dogs bothered them, but this is something I can't do anything about; everybody that travelled on Bali and stay in villages, will know that sometimes you hear dogs at night or cockcrows in the morning. That is Bali-life.
I checked our description on the Airbnb site (of the villa, which Luca booked); please be my guest and check it yourself .. it says :
" ...There are two kitchen areas without fridges and kitchen tools, which we use to borrow from the White House Restaurant, which provides the paid breakfast. .....
APARTMENT DAMAI ( 85 M2) .....
There is a kitchen area but no fridge and stove.
APARTMENT SATIGA (125 M2) ....
There is a kitchen area (outdoor) without fridge and stove.
Prices excludes breakfast, to get at the White House Restaurant untilll 11 a.m. or can also be delivered at the pool or in the house. "
As one can read breakfast is NOT included in the rate. We decided to do so because some people prefer to have breakfast somewhere else or prepare it themselves in a simple way, so the rate for the apartment and villa is just for the stay and without breakfast. I guess Luca did not read the description carefully. I am not happy about that because for the reason that guest will come with the right and realistic expectation, we provide this description. There are so many nice, charming (and cheap) restaurants nearby where you can have great breakfast and meals, we decided not to provide a complete kitchen. We provide a waterheater, plates and glasses, utensils etc though.
I regret Luca moved out without contacting us or the cleaning lady first; at least the waterheating and removing the birds (nest) could have been solved easily, but he chose to leave...
Villa bellissima immersa nel verde a due passi dalla strada principale dove si possono trovare tanti negozi e ristoranti... Vicinissima alla monkey forest e agli altri templi...il personale e' tutto gentilissimo e la casa grande, adatta soprattutto se si è una compagnia di più persone, e pulita... Da consigliare...
Quite a different experience to the usual villa. This is a rural house without luxuries but with a lot of charm. The location is great and it's as clean as it gets.
I loved the stay but if you are not ready to share the house with big spiders and other bugs, be warned.
On a final note, the swimming pool is not private of the house, but shared with other properties.
Ons verblijf in villa Cinta viel ernstig tegen. Weliswaar is het zwembad prachtig, maar het huis is zeer donker en vies. Tal van zaken functioneren niet goed: deuren, kranen, etc. Slechts 1 kamertje heeft airco. De rest niet. We moesten zelf 2 klamboes ophangen! Leuk als je van overdekt kamperen houdt.
Pieter heeft na aankomst direct een mail geschreven waarin hij op- en aanmerkingen heeft gegeven, hetgeen wij op zich waarderen; beter tijdens het verblijf van gasten te horen krijgen of er opmerkingen zijn dan achteraf en er dan niets meer aan kunnen doen. Zelf zijn wij niet ter plekke, maar we besteden het onderhoud uit aan een lokale dame, die schoonhoudt en de gasten ontvangt. Klachten over schoonmaakwerk kunnen wij meteen doorgegeven. Uit de opmerkingen van Pieter menen wij op te maken dat hij wellicht niet zo gewend is om in Azië te reizen; zo gaf hij bijvoorbeeld aan dat er een grote spin in het huis liep. Ook verwachtte hij bij aankomst dat het te warm zou zijn 's nachts omdat niet overal airco is, maar een 'open bouwstijl'. Wij hebben toegelicht dat ons huis deze bouwstijl heeft, met 'een open rand' hoog bij de aansluiting waar het dak rust op de muren, volgens een traditionele stijl van bouwen in de tropen die gebaseerd op ventilatie, waardoor geen airco nodig is. Liever geen airco vanwege minder belasting van het milieu en omdat het minder gezond is vanwege grote temperatuur wisselingen. Ook het feit dat niet overal veel zonlicht direct binnenvalt, hangt hiermee samen. We hebben echter wel toch 1 kamer met airco voor 't geval van eventuele last van hitte (welke wij nooit meemaken) of bij ziekte, waarbij je de temperatuur wil kunnen sturen naar circa 20 graden. Zoals ook op de foto's te zien is, hebben wij leemkleurige muren en een dito vloer wat een bepaalde uitstraling en sfeer geeft. Gasten die bijvoorbeeld hygiëne associëren met strak witte muren en vloeren, zullen mogelijk een ander type huis prefereren.
We hebben de opmerkingen waar wij iets aan konden laten doen (een sterkere lamp om te kunnen lezen en 'het verjagen van de spin' direct doorgegeven aan de dame die schoonmaakt. Hopelijk is de mail die wij de eerste dag van Pieter ontvingen mede te wijten aan het feit dat hij een lange reis achter de rug had en in die „mood” heeft geschreven, waarop wij de de bovenbeschreven punten hebben weerlegd en een enkel punt opgelost. Wij hebben de hoop, maar ook veronderstelling dat hij na een nachtje slapen alsnog zijn draai heeft kunnen vinden, want wij hebben geen reactie meer gekregen op ons antwoord.
Very friendly and helpful host, who arranged our transportation and helped with everything.
"We loved the nice house and the great location but had to stay in Damai, the apartment on the first floor, although we rented the whole villa because the White House management rented the Satiga apartment out on their own to other people, without permission. We contacted Elly and she did her very best to make things happen as promised but the White House refused. Elly sent a lawyer etc. to deliver us the whole house. The management didn’t cooperate.
We could make a new deal with Elly and she was prepared to give us a bargain price for our stay and apologized. Elly wants to make sure to avoid this kind of problems in the future. The house and location got a great potention when they can improve the management."
