It was such a great time to stay in Gusde's real bali style house. The room is just clean and perfect for its price. It has such a nice rice field view. The location is a bit away from Ubud center, but Gusde offered full free pickup services to the town. Since my flight was at midnight, Gusde kidnly allowed me to stay and leave our stuff in the room after check out time. I really appreciate that. He and his staffs' English was fluent enough to communicate. I can truly recommend Gusde and his friend to my friends who want to explore Ubud.
가격대를 생각했을 때 괜찮은 집입니다. 발리 양식으로 지어진 집입니다. 시내와 약간 떨어져 있지만 집 주인인 구스데가 시내로 가는 픽업과 집으로 돌아오는 픽업을 무료로 제공해주니 아무런 문제 없이 우붓 관광에 집중하실 수 있습니다. 우붓이나 발리에 관한 정보를 물으면 친절하게 영어로 설명해줍니다. 가족들이 직접 옆 집에 살고 있기 때문에 쉽게 물어보거나, 요구 사항을 말 할 수 있습니다.
Gusde and his wonderful family and driver Wayan made my holiday so much richer. The guest room in their family compound is charming and cleaned every day. It is beautifully set against rice paddies at the rear with busy Balinese life in the front. It looks exactly like the photos.
I broke my wrist on day four of two weeks. Gusde arranged for quick access to a specialist in Denpasar who was brilliant and Wayan stayed with me during hours of procedures etc. their kindness was very welcome. If you need a bit of looking after in your holiday you will get it here. Gusde and family are willing to share Balinese culture and this was a highlight for me. Thank you everyone. I enjoyed your lovely home very much Gusde and Putri. :)
Due to a personal emergency after I had arrived on vacation in Bali, I had to cancel my stay at Gusde's home in Ubud the day I had intended to check in at this guest home. From the time I made my booking on Airbnb, Gusde was very responsive and prompt in our email communications. He was very understanding and gracious when I did have to cancel. I sadly regret that I was unable to visit Ubud during this trip to Bali, as I was so looking forward to experiencing a stay with Gusde's family.
We stayed at Gusde's home in the town of Mas for a full week in mid December 2013. Gusde and his family were very warm and friendly. The layout of a Balinese home is very special, with separate stand-alone structures at each of the 4 orientations, one of which was the guesthouse for me and my girlfriend. Everything was covered in intricate wood carvings, from the doors to the windows and the furniture-- which makes sense since Mas seems to be home to artisan wood and glass workers. We had fresh fruit and smoothies served every morning for breakfast, with a variety of Balinese and Western cuisines.
Gusde also introduced us to Wayan, who gave us the complimentary rides into Ubud (tourist center), and who we ended up hiring to take us to nearby towns and temples. Wayan was quite knowledgeable about Balinese culture and very accommodating with our whims.
We highly recommend staying at Gusde's home! And check out his restaurant too!
During my Bali trip I stayed two nights at the Balinese House new Ubud. It was a great pleasure getting to know Gusde and his family and staying in the original balinese house which is beautiful! Because of the offered shuttle the short distance to Ubud is no problem. Wayan, who was taking care about the shuttle service, is a very friendly person, who knew the culture and the country very good. I learned a lot from him about Bali and Balinese people and saw many beautiful places of Bali with him. The breakfast was very nice and the room as well. the rice field is directly behind the house, what makes it even more special. It was a very special and wonderful time.
We spent 2 nights at Gusde's house during our stay in Ubud. The house is very comfortable inside a real Balinese compound with a bed overlooking the rice fields. Gusde is a very good host sharing insights about his culture with you, I really enjoyed our breakfast chats with him.
The house is like 15 minutes drive from center of Ubud but theres a free shuttle taking you in downtown and back so you never feel away from the center.
We loved our stay at Gusde's place and highly reccommend it!
We are so happy that we choose Gusde's house for our stay in Bali. It was our honeymoon, we spent 3 nights at Gusde's family beautiful real balinese house. They made everything for our comfortable stay. All was just perfect!!! Gusde, his family and Wayan are adorable!!! They were always there to help, to give advice or just to smile and wish a nice day, very friendly, positive, and great persons!!! We felt very safe and free, like it was our own family. Breakfast was so delicious!!!! :)) Very comfortable bed, hard to get out of it! :), Flowers everywhere, it was so nice!!! It's so easy to be lazy there :)) just enjoying delicious food, listening to the birds and looking at rice field. Perfect place, we enjoyed our stay there!!!! It's very interesting to walk around Mas village without crowds of tourists, you can make many beautiful photos. Of course you must visit Gusde's restaraunt in Ubud!!! Romantic candle lights and delicious food. We dreamed about balinese blessing ceremony and Gusde with his family made our dream come true. Reality was even better than in our dreams. :)) Beautiful traditional wedding clothes, beautiful make-up, offerings for the Gods (made by Gusde's mother), flower petals, atmosphere and real temple priest!!! These memories will stay in our hearts all life long. We are very grateful to Gusde, his father, mother, wife, son and Wayan!!! We definitely recommend this piece of paradise to everyone!!! You will be in safe and caring hands!!! :)))
Arrivés de nuit, la première impression est assez étrange. L'ombre des statues, des sculptures, des arbres, légèrement éclairée par la lumière de la terrasse donne une atmosphère particulière.
La chambre est joliment décorée, agréable, paisible et propre.
Réveillés par le chant des oiseaux, nous découvrons une vue superbe sur les rizières et les palmiers sur fond de ciel bleu.
La cour intérieure, le jardin sont un enchantement. Tout ici respire la sérénité, le calme. Un endroit hors du temps qui donne envie de se poser et de regarder vivre ce jardin. La lumière y joue avec les ombres et lui donne des couleurs changeantes. Les oiseaux, les canards, les grenouilles ... assurent un fond sonore agréable et diversifié.
L'art du jardin et la culture balinaise confèrent à ce lieu un haut niveau d'harmonie. On en oublie presque que dehors, il y a Bali à découvrir.
Les hôtes : tout le monde est extrêmement gentil, serviable, attentionné, respectueux, fiers de leur culture et prêts à la partager.
Un seul regret : la brièveté du séjour.
Si, un jour nos pas nous ramènent sur Bali, nous espérons pouvoir à nouveau revivre ces moments chez Gusde et sa famille.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home! We had a great time in Bali. Gusde is a great house and very friendly. The room was very clean and we loved the back patio with the view of the rice field. Gusde's wife brought us breakfast every morning as soon as we woke up. Gusde also has a really sweet dog who let us pet him, not like many dogs in Bali! Gusde provided a ride to and from Ubud throughout the day which was very helpful. Even if we didnt use his shuttle, the cab ride from center of Ubud was only about 45,000 idr, not bad at all! I would recommend anyone to stay here :)
Perfect place to experience Bali's culture as you actually live in the compound together with the local family! Beautiful garden, the house has everything you need and in a very cozy style, plus the view to the rice fields.. It is a bit outside Ubud, but we were driven there and back every time we needed so 0 inconvenience from that point of view. Very welcoming hosts, great breakfast, complimentary water all the time - just fantastic!
If you end up in Ubud we suggest to take the cycling tour to admire more of those lush rice fields and cute local villages.. if yuu are hikers do not miss the opportunity to do the night trek up Mt. Agung to see the sunrise!
