I had an amazing time! Wayan and his family ( including their 3 dogs) did everything possible to make sure I had an amazing and unique experience in Bali. We went to see off the beaten track waterfalls, rice paddies , and even to a party in their village. I will 100% be coming back the next time I am in Bali!!
Wayan and his wife Ayo were the most fantastic hosts. Ayo's food was probably the best we had in the whole of Bali and they were incredibly welcoming and helpful in organising all our tours and trips to temples around ubud.
The room itself was set in the most lush tropical garden, it was clean, well appointed and with a fantastic outside bathroom. There are two other rooms on the property, so you get to meet other travellers during your stay. I would highly recommend staying here.
Everything is great. I stay 2 nights and it is an awesome experience for me and my partner. We really enjoy the days and night in wayan's place. The food prepare by ayu, Bintang. Had a great chat with wayan and Ricardo who stay beside us. Strongly recommend for a getaway of city life :)
After a 2 week trip with a 4 & 5 year old to many areas of Bali, Wayan and Ayu's home stay stands out as the most memorable. Ayu's cooking is amazing and Wayan's knowledge of Bali culture and his tours are excellent. The villa is clean and very beautiful, albeit a bit more open air than expected. The kids loved seeing all the animals on their farm and going on a scooter ride with Ayu to the village. Staying here will give you a peek into the true culture of Bali with gracious and caring hosts!
Wayan and Ayu were lovely hosts and were very flexible and accommodating being able to organise tours, transport, laundry and meals at short notice. The family compound is located in a peaceful village approximately a 20 minute drive out of Ubud. The compound is set in a beautiful garden and Garden Villa 2 is just like the photos - I especially loved the outdoor bathroom. As a solo female traveller I felt safe and secure and had the opportunity to meet other guests at the communal table where delicious meals were served and the wifi was the strongest. During my stay I went on one of Wayan’s day tours which was great, spent time exploring Ubud and walked through the rice fields near the family compound. My only regret is that I would have liked to have stayed longer than three nights and experienced more of the family and village life. It was also lovely to meet Agus and Anta – Wayan and Ayus’ sons – and the three dogs Bintang, Blackie and Fido. Thank you for having me!
Wow, words can't describe how incredible a place this is to stay. Its liking living in the jungle, mixed with a farm yard, and so clean and luxurious. Wayan and his wife, Sueta, were most accommodating during my stay. Delicious dinners and breakfasts cooked throughout my stay. I had to admire the workmanship that Wayan put into the villas, such attention to detail, and the outdoor shower is something everyone should try. On my last morning, I took a walk around the local area with their son who was so friendly and talkative. Loved every minute of my stay here and would recommend to others travelling to Bali
Staying with Wayan and Ayu was an absolute pleasure. They were incredibly warm, providing helpful suggestions for my short stay, organising pick ups and drop offs to town and welcoming all guests into their wonderful home. The room was exactly like the picture, accessed via a path through a beautiful, lush garden of wild flowers, very serene and peaceful and the outdoor shower was a treat. The food at breakfast (and other meals if you arrange it) was tasty and filling. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, chilling and doing yoga in Ubud but also taking a day trip to waterfalls, rice paddies and temples and visiting the local market to stock up on spices. Wayan dropped me off at the airport, a slightly stressful journey as I just about made my return flight although I would have happily stayed longer, I would love to come back.
