Response from Shakar:

Well Michael thanks for the nice things you said about the house and our assistance to you during your stay in Kubu Rama. Too bad it was a very brief stay, because it did not give us sufficient time to correct the air conditioner problem while you were still here. It seems that issue tainted your enthusiasm a bit and we apologize for that.

As you know, mechanical things do sometimes go faulty. We found out about problem late at night on your first night (the previous guest who checked out that morning did not mention any issue), and we had a technician come the next day as soon as possible. Unfortunately he needed to get a specific spare part to fix the issue, and it was not available that day. He came back the next day to fix it but you were already gone.

Unfortunately as private house without 24 hour on call technician, we do the best we can to call in outside technical assistance quickly when we identify a problem, but sometimes have to wait as the person may have a religious ceremony or something else going on, which is a common occurrence in Bali. As an update, we have now completely replaced some of the components of the AC and it is working fine, and we do not expect any more future problems. We have also purchased a portable air cooler (like a mini air conditioner which runs on water) and a strong rotating fan as immediate backups should there be any issue. One other thing to note is that in most seasons except perhaps the heart of the rainy season, Ubud which is a hilly area leading to the slopes of mountains, stays quite cool at night, so often just opening a couple windows should keep the place cool and give you nice fresh air too.

Again we apologize for the inconvenience and are doing the best we can to make sure this kind of situation can be mitigated in the future. We do hope you guys come back to Ubud and Kubu Rama on a more fortunate occasion and enjoy a smooth and relaxing stay. Thanks!
