What a great find this was. We stayed here for 2 1/2 weeks and felt so at home. The beds were very comfortable and the location quiet and private. I didn't know how much we'd appreciate the full-sized pool until we got there; we used it several times a day to cool off. The villa was just a short walk from several local restaurants, the local yoga studio, and the Bintang grocery store. Like all Bali accommodations, some parts of the villa were open to the elements, but we quickly learned to make friends with the frogs, geckos, ducks, and roosters in the rice paddy next door. Steve was a welcoming and generous host, providing a local cell phone for us to use and leaving us some tips and maps for our stay. Wayan the housekeeper was a daily resource for us and made us fantastic banana pancakes and fruit bowls for breakfast! Our driver Kadek made our stay complete by taking us on a couple of excursions to see the rest of Bali while we used Ubud as our base. If you stay here, just remember that you will be doing a lot of walking (the immediate neighborhood is closed to motor traffic) and you'll want to bring a flashlight to light your way on the footpath at night. With the blooming lotuses and orchids greeting us every morning, this place was a great retreat from the smog and bustle of the Ubud city center.
You couldn't ask for a more beautiful location and view.
The early morning skies were magnificent overlooking the rice field, and the bird songs were something else!
If you love (email hidden)is is the place for you.
There was a slight problem for me with the bedroom being up stairs, and the bathroom being down stairs. Some years ago, I broke both of my ankles, and they get a bit stiff during the night, which made nocturnal trips down the stairs to the bathroom a bit difficult.
Other than that, it's a glorious place to stay in, and Steve is a very helpful and thoughtful host.
My husband and I had a great time at this villa. Very comfortable- felt like home. The host was very helpful and gave us lots of great advice about what to do in the area and was very responsive to any questions we had. It was great to have Wayan helping with making meals and having a local connection. We will miss it!
The Villa is absolutely fabulous- even better than the photos. Very clean, welcoming and private. Having such a gorgeous setting and your own pool made us not want to leave. You can literally step out of the house into the pool. It is very tastefully done, and everything you could possibly want for. It is a home, not a hotel, so it is lived in and comfortable. Being open Bali style architecture there are lots of frogs, and if the occassional spider or bug bothers you, or if you are expecting 5 star sterility dont bother. This is the perfect place for those who want to relax, unwind, and savor the splendid scenery. Be aware that there is no car access, and some fairly hefty stairs up to where it is. However, it is short walk to the supermarket, and there is an absolutely lovely cafe, the Yellow Flower, within 2 minutes- truly you never need to leave if you dont want to. You can get the masseurs to come to the villa for a small extra charge, and the villa is equipped with a massage table.Absolutely quiet, nothing but the sound of the frogs singing and the water lapping at night. I cannot recomend this place highly enough. Mr Scott is a lovely guy, I only met him for a few minutes, but his artistic nature is obvious in the decor. LOVED every minute we spent, and would go back in a heartbeat.
You havn't seen Bali until you come to Ubud!! and Stephen's place just outside downtown Ubud in the cool village of Penestanan was awesome. After a long day of checking out the monkey village or visiting trendy stores & restaurants in Ubud, it was great to come back and float in the pool!! This place truly is a beautiful oasis of flowers & rice fields, and Stephen has done an incredible job of decorating the villa. Wayan & Kadek were great help to both of us, even taking us into Depansar so that Billie could buy batik fabric for quilting and to the elephant safari park in Taro. We felt so very safe and relaxed throughout our visit, and it is truly thanks to Stephen, his incredible staff and this wonderful villa!! We will be back to Bali and when we do we will stay here again. Dont miss out!!
