I can't speak highly enough not only of the place but Steve as well. The place looked just like the pictures, very clean and comfortable. Beautiful home and wonderful guesthouse attached to the main home. Steve was beyond accommodating, helped me arrange a ride to and from the airport, helped me arrange a scooter rental, helped me to figure out an itinerary for my time there and was more of a friend than just a host. My visit was amazing in large part due to staying here and I would without a doubt stay here again. The location was perfect as well, far enough from the busy center of Ubud but close enough for a short (less than 10 minute) scooter ride.

Steve is pretty much the ideal host. From the time I booked, he was on top of communication and even arranged to have his driver pick me up to bring me to his home. He is warm, welcoming, and a lot of fun to stay with. His helper Wayan kept my room clean and made me breakfast in the morning, which I was very pleased with. The villa itself is spectacular, just like in the pictures! What you don't see is how breathtaking the natural surroundings are. I loved being tucked away from all the cars, the noise, and the tourists and having a little sanctuary to come back to. Ubud center is just an easy scooter ride away. Final note, the wifi is A+ and a rare commodity here in Bali. Would definitely recommend staying here if you are looking for Western comfort in Ubud.

We absolutely loved staying at Steve's beautiful villa. It is in a quiet, relaxing location, surrounded by the rice fields and palm trees, but close enough to Ubud to explore by scooter. The room is private and cool, and a very comfortable place to stay. Steve is a wonderful host, welcoming and always happy to help or offer suggestions for experiences in the local area, and he pays great attention to detail. He was also very helpful when I ended up with the dreaded Bali Belly after a visit to the mountains; providing remedies and hot tea.

We had a great time staying with Steve. He was very helpful on arrival, easy to get in contact with, and gave us some excellent recommendations of places and restaurants to go to (and even helped us book them too). The room is perfect - really nicely decorated, good air-con, outdoor shower and comfortable bed. Having breakfast while sitting looking at the view over the fields is something we won't forget! We would definitely recommend staying here.

I had the most wonderful stay at Steve's villa! The suite and the rest of the house are absolutely beautiful, and I loved the location; very close to the centre of town (less than 10mins by scooter) and with other restaurants and shops even closer, but far enough to be incredibly peaceful and with a glorious view of the rice fields. The room was absolutely spotless and cleaned daily. I particularly loved the outdoor shower, and the pool is divine! Steve is great fun and I thoroughly enjoyed chatting over tea by the pool each morning! He knows Bali very well and helped recommend restaurants and arrange scooter hire for me. I can't wait to go back!

Steve was an amazing host! This is by far the best AirBnB stay I have ever had. Before I make it sound generic and boring here're 5 reasons why the full experience was hands down 5 star: 1) Steve was good with communicating, even way before the trip! He provided sight-seeing tips and arranged transport for us. You have less things to worry when you consult with him. 2) Did we mentioned that he is good at conversations? We joined him for dinner one night and the next thing we know, we spent 4 hours chatting with him until the restaurant closed! Also not forgetting the breakfast chats every morning. 3) The house looks exactly like the pictures. We also caught the breathtaking sunrise from the backyard with the rice fields as the backdrop. The peace and quiet is definitely something for city people. 4) We looked forward to the breakfast everyday, Wayang is a really good cooked and made delicious local breakfast! 5) The location is not that remote at all, there're a few cafes and warungs around and we even went for a spa (in the woods) that was just down the road. We will definitely visit Steve if we come back to Ubud again!

Our visit at Steve's villa was one of the highlights of our trip. He was a great host, always entertaining and friendly, and made us feel like we were at home. The villa was exactly what it looks like in the photos which was great. It was clean, well kept, and in a really peaceful location just minutes away from the busy center of Ubud. Kadek the driver and Wayan were both great, kind, and welcoming. Awesome breakfast in the mornings with fruit, eggs, toast, and coffee or tea on the patio outside. Definitely a fantastic experience and will come back the next time we're in Ubud!

There are fresh pineapples and starfruit on the grounds. Wayan tends to his 18 koi pond which seems to be increasing in numbers monthly! There are 12 varieties of orchids and close to 30 tucked away in the pink frangipani trees. Let us treat you to a pancake breakfast! We can book a bike tour through Kintimani, suggest a local ceremony or reserve you a fast boat to Gili. It is your vacation! Let us spoil you.
