as much as wanted by the guest, but the staff is always around.
this is the nicest area of Ubud, very close to the center but in the rice field area, you will find the better villas in this area.
we have a free shuttle to ubud center. and a driver that can organise every trip wanted.
the area has some good organic farms
The villa is better then the pictures show! we love the place.
We had a very nice time Ari and Made took very good care of us and Kim is a great host.
The beds are very comfortable, there is a big bed and some smaller beds, the bathrooms and the house was very clean and the free transport to the center was good, they give a free 1 hour return but we needed a little more time so we used the second voucher to get back for free. the villa is very private and the rice fields around the villa are beautiful.
we did not know but there is a security man every night so that was a great surprise. We wanted to party in Ubud but bars close already at 01.00am so we had our last drinks at home :-)
thank you very much we hope to be back soon!
I stayed here for 2days, and it's exactly like & better than the pictures. I loved the pool and bed sofa in living room.
Ari was kind and helpful during the stay, Mare also took good care of house. I certainly enjoyed this stay, and sure that who love to swim will fall in love with this beautiful place!
However house is little bit far from ubud centre, not a walk distance, you need to arrange transfer. Villa provide one-way free transfer a day, so you need to arrange another way by your self you call Ari, he'll arrange driver kindly but it's not free. So I used free pick up service when I go out for spa/restaurant if they provide.
and it'll be very helpful if villa put a paper with place of detail in Indonnesian/English so can just show driver to find. I guess it's impossible to explain the place in English
Thank you very much for staying with us!
thank you so much for the tips we will put a detailed map in the villa how to get back, the return from now on will be 1 hour and if you need more time you can use a second free voucher.
we hope to see you back soon!
thank you very much

We had a wonderful stay and couldn't be happier with Kim's villa. The staff was great and even during the rainy season it was beautiful. I would have no hesitation about returning again.
We had a great 3 days in Kim's villa in February, would have stayed longer if it had been possible.
The villa looks EXACTLY like shown on the photos, so I can NOT confirm Kate's negative review, especially her complaining about the "unbalinese finish", which she could have seen from the photos. We arrived 1 day after she was supposed to check in.
The house is very spacious and filled with light. Great couch in the living area, fully equipped open kitchen, free drinking water. Nice infinity pool with rice-field and jungle view in the backyard. Stable free WiFi connection and a cellphone for calling the manager/staff are offered, too. There are also a modern flat-screen TV-set and a sound-system in the living area.
Beds could be larger,but they are very clean and comfortable, though. They also have mosquito-nets, which you cannot see in the pictures. The air-cons in the bedrooms are pleasantly quiet. Everything was well clean. Breakfast is OK, but could offer more choices.
The location is great - a 10-15 minute drive from/to the center of Ubud. We've had our own rented car, so we didn't use the shuttle service. As the villa is located north of Ubud, you don't have to drive through the traffic jams in the south, just drive down the north-south road (Jalan Sriwedari) and you are in the "Jalan Raya Ubud" (Ubud Main Street) near the famous "Nomad" restaurant.
There are a couple of "warungs" and at least one spa in walking distance.
Ari is very caring and helps you with all your concerns/questions instantly on the phone, Kim does so via Email. We didn't meet any of them, but it was no problem at all, as everything went well and the on-site staff were all very friendly, also.
We've had a great time and definitely enjoyed our stay here!
Dear Eugen, thank you very much for staying with us and for your review. I will definitely start to improve our breakfast choices more in the coming weeks. we are also thinking of preparing it it directly inside the villa.
we really hope you will be back in the future. kind regards

The photos are quite deceiving. Probably the worst rush construction job I have ever seen, even in Bali, where these "throw up a cheap villa in a rice field" monstrosities are not uncommon. The bathrooms were dirty, the grout already black in between the mislaid tiles. The bedrooms smelled like either mold or noxious construction chemicals. Tiny, cheap, uncomfortable beds. The entrance to the villa was still under construction when we arrived, so much so that we drove by it twice, thinking it could not possibly be our rental. The kitchen cabinets are falling apart, despite purportedly having been installed less than two months ago ("construction completed in December 2013"). Like so many "new construction villas" in Bali, this one is absolutely charmless, with its cheap white tiles and decidedly un-Balinese finishes. The "staff" appeared to be a young man living across the street, and the "driver" will bring you to Ubud once per day, but will not wait for longer than an hour, requiring a taxi ride back to the villa. Luckily, we live in Bali and were able to make the trip back home for the night, so we put our bags back into the car and left within an hour, embarrassed for having subjected our out of country visitor to this villa, and to Ubud in general. The owner, who lives up the street, was quite understanding, and promptly refunded our money through airbnb. I feel very sorry for anyone who experiences Bali through this type of arrangement. There are much, much better, and likely more affordable, options. Hati-hati when booking something like this site unseen on the internet. Bali is not as it looks in so many ways.
Airbnb has come to our villa to make all the pictures, we choose that option because like that we hope that the pictures are as real as you can get it.
This guest did not stay at our villa, and did not pay she left 5 minutes after arriving, she did not want to talk to us and was aggressive to the staff, her husband did like the villa.
the villa is a couple of weeks old, this means that some things are not perfectly installed by the contractor and are replaced in these first weeks, so we work with a 99usd price, When the guest arrived the contractor was replacing a small part of the kitchen set and fixed a part in the bathroom and gate,
Made one of our staff members (not across te street, I don't get that remark) was cleaning the villa all morning and also the things some workers left behind.
the workers left directly when this guest arrived (the guest arrived before the official checkin time)
I personally checked the villa that morning if it was clean and ready, I also bought a new baby crib specially for this guest as requested.
I the owner am not "quite understanding" about the fact there was no communication possible with this guest anyhow of course I refunded the money, I have tried to talk with this guest on arrival but she did not want to talk to me, I have emailed her a couple of times but no reply
Thanks to Kim and his staff (Made&Ari). Your villa is lovely. Your staff is friendly and very helpfull. We are enjoyed! Will be back soon ;)
Good for the price.
Not a balinese house but clean and comfortable. A new villa with things to be improved. A quiet area with an easy access to Ubud (driver on demand). Harry is very helpful for everything and very kind but Made (assistant for the villa) doesn't speak english very well, so not always easy to communicate.
Breakfast is a little bit light and could be better.
It was a pleasant stay there, four days in january 2014.
Awesome place to stay! Kim and the crew were so helpful in organizing rides + Made and Ari really kept the place clean and efficient. Great looking spot with a good location right outside of the center of Ubud.
New villa. Great staff (Ari and Made) who try and make your stay as comfortable as possible.
With friendly helpful staff, this place was a relaxing place to stay out of the hustle of Ubud.
