Other Things to Note

Silent Day Rules...........
What happening on the 31th March.............
Bali's Day of Silence "Nyepi" 2014
Saka New Year 1936 of Hindus

Dear Valued guests,

The Balinese Hindus do not celebrate the coming of the new year of Saka calendar with lavish party; they celebrate it with meditation instead. No activities are allowed to take place. These mandatory religious prohibitions include no pleasure (amati lelangon), no traffic (amati lelungan), no fire (amati geni) and no work (amati karya).
This year, Nyepi Day falls on 31 March 2014.

On Nyepi Day, we will not be able to accept any check-in nor check-out throughout the day.

We notice that you will be staying with us during Nyepi Day, kindly be informed of the below situations during Nyepi Day:

The silence begins at 0:00 am of 31 March 2014 and will go on until the next 24 hours
All shops are closed on Nyepi Day
Guests has to stay inside the resort area
When listening to the music or watching TV in the villa, keep the sound at minimum level
There will be no traffic on that day in the whole Bali island
Ngurah Rai airport will be totally closed on 31 March 2014, so there will be neither arrival nor departure in the airport on that day. All connecting airports around the globe have been informed in advance about this.
Across Bali, the activities are allowed only in emergency rooms and maternity section of hospitals and the arrival section of airport. Any emergencies are taken into consideration and tolerated. The whole island is in silence.

However, operational activities and services in the resort will operate normally.

One day before Nyepi, Pengerupukan Day, there will be a nearest Ogoh-Ogoh parade performed by our neighboring Nagi villagers in the evening. Ogoh-Ogoh is the manifestation of a person, an object or anything that disturbs human lives. This parade is an exorcism ceremony at the main village crossroad, the meeting place of the demons. Beforehand, there will be a Perang Api (fire war) to start the parade with.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights. Wonderful host and staffs! However, it's really not easy to find this place especially at night. Our driver drove around abit before finding it. Just remember it's very near sankara (a popular resort in Ubud)

    Gusde and staff were waiting at the door for us when we arrive. The villa we stayed in was actually a 2-bedroom villa but since only 2 of us are staying, he locked the 2nd floor bedroom. The room was quite cosy and comfortable. But the air-con was a little noisy and it gets a little hot sometimes since it's behind the wall of our bed. The bathroom was quite big and clean but it's a little inconvenient when the sink is not in the bathroom. The pool is quite dirty with some dead mosquitoes so i don't really enjoy the pool alot. Just remember to be prepared with repellents! Overall, the room is good if you are not too particular with the details.

    Service matters more to us and we were really happy with their service! Especially the manager, Wayan! A very nice guy with his trademark words, "Yes, please". Even tho the villa is really not very well located, we get shuttle service everyday. And Gusde owns a restaurant in the city centre, Bali Pesto cafe. It's quite nice, try the duck there!

    All in all, we enjoyed our stay here! :D

    Thank you for your advice and we will follow up very soon. Thank you for choosing our villa for your second home.

  • Great place.
    Nicer in real life then photos.
    Staff were so sweet.
    High recommend to family and friends .

    Private, lush, the location is so close to main attractions, but far enough away that when you look out the windows all you see is lush scenery.
    Bed was so comfortable, house clean.
    We had food delivered from the Bali pesto restaurant in the main Street they set it up and plated it for us around the pool. The food was amazing Indonesian, we have high standards when it comes to authentic food and it was seriously amazing .

  • Gusde and the family were incredibly helpful during our stay. The villa was beautiful and we loved the pool! Thank you Gusde and Made - hope to come back again soon!

  • Gusde and his staff are wonderful hosts. Their help and graciousness far exceeded my expectations. Especially the pool was amazing. Staying in this beautiful villa is really a treat. Cheers!!

  • I had originally booked this villa. Prior to our arrival Gusde informed me that he will move me to a different villa (for no extra cost) as there are children staying near the villa we had booked.

    The alternative villa (Corry) was fantastic, but disadvantage for us was that there was no wifi available at the time. So after two nights (after the family had left) we moved in to the original villa because of the wifi. However, wifi was quite slow and we found the Villa Corry was much more spacious and comfortable, so we had asked to return to Corry villa the next day.

    Whilst we met briefly with Gusde, Wayan took good care of us - from breakfast til we returned back to the villa in the evening. Wayan was very hospitable, warm, sincere, patient and such kind hearted. I don't think our holiday in Ubud would have been as pleasant if it weren't for Wayan. We were given a mobile phone with a local number, which we appreciated very much as it allowed us to call Wayan anytime we needed something.

    The trips from the villa to town (and vice versa) comes free as part of booking the accommodation, but you may also book Wayan to drive you to Kuta/Seminyak or other places in Bali. Very safe driver!

    Also, I strongly recommend trying the Smoked Duck at Bali Pesto - it was the best smoke duck we tried in Ubud - and trust me we tried so many duck dishes. Guess who the chef is for Bali Pesto? Wayan!!

    If you need laundry done, ask Wayan - his wife even irons them. She's such a lovely lady.

  • What an amazing place to stay. The village of Mas was gorgeous and quiet yet only a ten minute ride into Ubud.

    The Villa's were simply amazing. I had initially booked the "Fresh and new private villa in Ubud". However the day before we left I saw another listing " Your Green Private Villa in Bali" and decided to go with that.

    I checked both out and both were amazing but the Green Villa (also referred to as Cory) was exceptional with the most amazing views from the infitinty pool across a small gully full of coconut trees. We also loved the bed - so extremely comfortable and the room was serviced daily.

    We were served breakfast in the villa each morning at a pre-arranged time which was lovely. We also had dinner delivered on our first night from the restaurant - again very nice.

    It was my husbands birthday and Gusde delivered a cake on the morning of it and joined in singing happy birthday. It was a nice touch.

    All in all I would definitely recommend this villa along with the others listed... they all looked wonderful.

    We arranged to be picked up from the airport for $30 by there driver which I would recommend as you then dont need to worry about finding the place.

    ENJOY... It is a little slice of heaven.

  • Great accommodations and all around helpful! We had a lovely experience at his grandfather's home for a traditional Balinese ceremony honoring iron. We met other members of his village and family and shared stories/appreciation of Apple products.

    The villa was secluded and offered the perfect start to our Ubud stay. Wayan is the villa driver and always made sure we were taken care of. The villa offers a free shuttle to Ubud. Gusde and his wife even shuttled us a few times as well.

    The pool is wonderful and when you book just two people in the 2 bedroom villa, they keep the other bedroom vacant so you have complete privacy. There is an upstairs room and a downstairs room. We stayed downstairs. Of Gusde's other listings, (white bedrooms in other villa) you can use the pool only if there are no guests in the 2 bedroom villa.

    Breakfast was great. We opted for traditional Balinese and since I was a vegi, they were happy to accommodate. Fresh fruit, juices, food, coffee were all wonderful.

    The rice paddies where in transitional growth phases while we were there, so just know this when you visit the area. I actually liked it better as you get to see more work happening in the fields. The road is not very busy and is perfect to take a stroll down to the local village where we met Wayan's wife and children, saw men grooming their roosters, and were greeted with an endless amount of smiles.

    Wayan's wife owns a laundry service in the village and they will pick up and drop off for your convenience. We paid no more than $3 to do an ample load.

    On a side note, I left a shirt in the villa and only noticed I didn't have it 3 days after our departure. Gusde and Wayan made every effort to find it (was hidden in the sheets and ended up in their laundry) and personally dropped off the shirt at our current accommodation.

    Thank you for a wonderful stay. We look forward to seeing you all again!

    Cheers, Nicole & Jeremy

  • The private villa was exactly what my wife and I were looking for during our stay in Ubud. I think we may have stayed at a different property across the street than what is listed (supposedly better) as they were doing some construction so the details may not apply to the property as listed. The villa itself was large and the plunge pool/lounge area was amazing. We spent almost an entire day there just relaxing.

    Gusde was also extremely helpful during our stay. As others have mentioned, he can arrange for you to be taken to town at no charge a couple of times during the day as the property is tucked away from the touristy areas of town. He also recommended things to do, and as a great AirBnB host, he even invited us to join in attending a religious festival that his village participates in twice a year. We just happened to be visiting at the right time! While he was busy juggling the festivities (he is an important person in his village), he still found time to follow a procession of offerings to the temple and watch a traditional Balinese dance show. It was great, as there were only about 5 other tourists at these functions out of the the thousands of Balinese that were there.

    I think the only complaint you could have would be the location. If you want to stay in town and be able to walk around to restaurants and have the night life, this wouldn't necessarily be the place for you. At the same time, we found that the location was part of the charm and we still spent plenty of time in town. Would definitely recommend.

  • Gusde is a wonderful host. We stayed five nights in his beautiful villa in impressive sorroundings. Gusde and his team (especially Wayan) took care for everything: breakfast, transport, information. We didn´t miss anything. Gusde and his staff gave our stay a very personal touch.
