It was a great pleasure meeting Wayan and Ayu, their children and their friendly dogs. Their sense of hospitality and genuine love for people make them truly special and I'm sure their guests will all agree. Don't miss Ayu's cooking, I've stayed one month in Bali and hers is definitely the tastiest I've had! I still miss her Nasi Goreng with chicken satay and her steamed green pancakes with coconut and palm sugar, to die for!!! Terima kasi to both of you and God bless!
Transport was arranged from the airport for which we were very grateful. Yes, their website description was quite accurate though we were not prepared for the jungle beauty of the property. Wayan's home, village and surrounding rice paddies offer a true experience of Balian life with five star hospitality. Wayan, Ayu, family and staff welcomed us as family and solicited our every need. Great care is taken to make sure you experience Balian hospitality from preparing exquisite meals lovingly by Ayu to arranging your day with excursions to nearby Ubud and surrounding Bali. In the spirit of sustaining their immediate village, many are employed from drivers to masseuses. Wayan and family apply their skills so other in their village can improve their lives. So, we thank you, for welcoming us to your home and village, and sharing the love you have for all who visit.
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!
