I stayed at Wayan's for 3 nights in August. He's such a great host ; provides transports, cooks and brings you around if needed! The place is absolutely beautiful! Look forward to staying more nights at the guesthouse!
Your accommodation was very clean and comfortable - the outdoor shower was my favourite!
Thank you for taking us on a tour of Ubud and surrounds - we would never have been able to find all those amazing places alone, let alone fit it all in in such a short time.
Your home was by far my favourite of all the places I have stayed in Bali. You made us welcome from the moment we arrived and were always willing to go above and beyond to help.
Finally, your home offered great value. You said that you like to make sure your guests pay a reasonable price for anything they do while staying with you and you definitely made sure of that for us - even buying things for us where you knew you could get them cheaper than we would!
Thank you for having us and we would love to come back again!
Mandana Guesthouse was a real find. Everything described in Airbnb was correct. The room was really nice, clean and spacious. The outdoor shower was really nice with plenty of hot water
Wayan was the perfect host. Nothing seemed too much trouble for his guests. He is always happy to give his guests a lift into Ubud or one of the nearby restaurants.
I will return next time I am in Bali.
Wayan was welcoming when we arrived and also during our stay. His family was also very nice. He gives you information about sight-seeing and takes you places in/around Ubud to show you the Balinese culture and religion. Me and my friend were very happy to stay at Manada Guesthouse and we would go back again!
The guesthouse is situated in a calm place and everything is closeby.
We had an enjoyable stay at Wayan's guest house. Wayan was a helpful host with plenty of information on Ubud. The cooked breakfast was always tasty and he even showed us Balinese cooking. The accommodation was quiet, clean and comfortable. We hired a scooter to access the restaurants and attractions in town.
Unfortunately I had to cancel my trip due to a volcanic explosion, but Wayan was an excellent communicator and was ready to pick me up from the airport whenever I arrived. I'm really disappointed that I wasn't able to make it this time, but I look forward to staying with Wayan and his family on my next trip.
