Amazing! This beautiful family welcomes you into their home with open hearts and provide an experience you will always remember. The food is the best in Bali- delicious and traditional. The gardens surrounding the villa are stunning and the villa is large and open with a great stone shower feature. Everything is very clean and neat. There are many tours in the surrounding areas that will suit everyone. These tours are easily arranged for you. Or you can just relax in the peaceful Villa, away from the busier parts of Bali. Wayan and Ayu are fantastic hosts who go out of their way to make your stay special. It was perfect for our 2 year old daughter to stay here and be shown so much love and affection by these wonderful people. We were honoured to stay here and experience an authentic taste of Bali. We cannot recommend this place enough, it is perfect!
Best experience and highlight of our trip to Bali. We would return JUST to stay here. Absolutely amazing hospitality, and felt like home. Our villa was private, clean and the shower was awesome! There was always hot water. We were sad to leave, and the next day we already wanted to come back!! Make sure to eat dinner EVERY night, best food we had our entire trip!! We will be back!
Staying here was like going to stay at your friends. We felt so welcome all the time in Wayan and Ayu's home. We were a little worried about the distance from Ubud initially, but found there was plenty more to do in and around the village. Arranging a lift to Ubud was easy so we got to have a look around a couple of times. We also visited the waterfall which was awesome and were welcomed to join a cremation ceremony in the village. There's no need to eat out as Ayu's cooking is soooo good! And always more than enough for all the guests. One night she fed 10 of us, with plenty left over. I would definitely recommend staying here, and the whole experience of a home stay to get the real picture of Bali.
Wayan and Ayu were amazing!!! We have been to Bali many times, but for the first time got to see the real Bali. The place was awesome, the shower was something special, but more than a room this was really an experience. P.s. Don't even think of eating out, Ayu's cooking is the best!! We wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely be back.
I was in Bali for a short 3 days and I made such a good choice to spend it in Wayan's home. Wayan and his family were great to talk to, the food was amazing and the atmosphere of the place was really fun. Dogs and cats and chickens running through the beautiful property (I will miss Fido and Blackie!) with a sort of peaceful noise of the jungle all around. Lots of good suggestions for things to do and I found the location to be a good place to launch off to some nearby sites. If you want to get off the map a bit and relax in the middle of the Bali jungles and rice fields then this is the way to do it.
It was a very nice stay at Wayan and Ayu' s place. Very friendly people. We loved the food of Ayu and her stories :-)
We had a great 2 night stay with Wayan, Ayu, Agus and family! Their place is a great example of what makes Airbnb so great - and so much better (at least for what we wanted) than the typical hotel experience. The room and bathroom were perfectly clean, the outdoor-style shower was really cool, and the greenery around the room was beautiful. You will probably see a few lizards, spiders and other insects near the house (we never had mosquitoes in the room though) and you will hear the roosters in the morning, but we thought it was an inconsequential price to pay for staying in such a cool, lush environment. Most importantly, Wayan and Ayu were extremely welcoming, always smiling, and willing to help with any planning needs. Ayu provided us a couple of the best dinners we've had while traveling - would recommend eating there for every meal possible (prices are cheap considering what you get in return). We also relied on them for airport transport and a day-tour to some nearby attractions (the rice paddy field nearby is a nice walk, and you can walk to the village center, but if you want to do a bunch of sightseeing, arranging transportation is necessary and the family can provide it all at a reasonable price). So glad we chose to stay with Wayan's family - the perfect way to experience Bali - only wish we could have stayed longer!
