Terima Kasih, Thank You, Gracias and Merci.
Brief Review that reflects the guest:
easy going, kind and positive.
In spite of the fact that we could not provide the iron he requested, Ricardo remained cool, never grumpy, never complaining. We of course offered to pick up his clothes and have them ironed at our Laundry service. Yet he told us to not bother.
We are sure that even in a crumpled shirt he stil looked handsome, hehe..
Come back any time, Ricardo, we are investing in seven irons, one for each house... ~;+)

Response from Tini:

Following a "Sustainable Home" training taught by a foundation concerned with eco-awareness solutions and attended by our employees, our intention in diluting our soaps (hand, kitchen) and cleaning materials is meant to have a lesser impact on the environment. We also buy concentrate cleaning materials in soft pouches to keep packaging disposal to a minimal. Diluting soapy products is meant to limit toxic, harmful waste in our homes as it runs down to ground water, rivers and streams. This is what drives us as Bali is facing challenges with the increase of tourism.
We also kindly request our guests to be conservative with the use of water, a very precious resource here: underground water tables are threatened by excessive pumping and lowers by 1 meter per year, following recent surveys scientifically done by the University of Denpasar.
Switching off lights and fans before going out is another small gesture to show awareness towards the environment as the island has limited resources. Reason why we have no AC, preferring a set up that allows a natural cooling breeze.
We recycle metal cans & glass bottles, sorting them in separate bins.
We support the Association “Say No To Plastic!” and "Peduli Alam", recommending our guests to use the spring mineral water from the dispenser rather than buying single-use plastic bottles;
we encourage you to use a fabric bag (provided) when going shopping better than bringing back more plastic bags, hard to dispose of..
These are just a few of the daily practices we apply, on a modest scale but we believe every small gesture helps.
BkFast: our guests come from all walks of life, some want pancakes with maple syrup in the morning, Asians like rice and dry fish while others are on a 'detox' and prefer green juices...
We have now opted to provide a 'western' style breakfast: Bali grown coffee, two varieties of teas, Javanese cacao, Milk, brown sugar, Eggs, bread, australian butter, Home made fruit jam, cereal mix - with the option to get 'extra foods' like bacon, cheese, ham etc - upon request.
Food: (veggies, fruit, drinks) is found in small 'warungs' and local market from 100 to 500M away; restaurants like "Warung Madé" and "Nasi Ayam" (6-700M away) offer meals with fresh grilled fish or chicken, served with rice and vegetable at unbeatable prices around 30K Rp (2.5USD) - also many higher range places are near-by, like Four Seasons, Food Court at Bali Wood, Amandari, Pita Maha, Alila, Kupu Kupu, etc.
Thanks to the "excellent descriptions" indeed, our Folder in the apartment is full of contacts for all styles of Food Delivery from raw, vegan, Western, Italian pizza, Japanese to... tropical fruit sherbets. One call away.

Response from Tini:

The TREE TOP NEST 'JUNGALOW" is 3.5Km away from Ubud.
There are 4-5 local restaurants, with prices from 25K Rp, like "Made's Warung" and "Nasi Ayam", besides places where to dine at higher range resorts (Four Seasons, Pita Maha, Kupu Kupu, Amandari, Sayan Terrace.
We also provide menus and contacts of food delivery services that are very convenient.
Thank you for acknowledging that our place is "very clean" thanks to our two House keepers who pour in their efforts and sense of organisation.

Response from Tini:

JUNGALOW, in our estimate is NOT 350Ft but rather 100Ft above the River!

We maintain our houses daily thanks to Mr Nyoman who covers a wide range of tasks from painting, repairing leaks, tiles, furniture, electricity, plumbery, securing doors and windows, trimming the garden etc In a tropical island like Bali, rain, humidity, sun can quickly damage a building. Reason why we take great care of our beautiful Jungalow.

As to "a little more engagement by the host":
We manage seven houses in Ubud... when our Guests stay just two Nights and we come to visit them, they are not always home then!
Besides, our engagement is to always reply to all requests in the very best delay: WITHIN ONE HOUR (as referenced by AirBnB), whether via email or sms.
This is our commitment towards our Guests.

PUSPA is a little gem of friendly kindness, efficient, attentive to all requests, well organised and doing all her many tasks always with a smile! Thank you for recognising her talents!
At the JUNGALOW "TREE TOP NEST" (2nd Floor) & THREE TOP LOFT (garden floor): Air conditioning is something we have considered but as we have personally spent periods of days and nights in each of our houses, we dismissed it, mostly for eco-friendly (website hidden) requires a lot of electricity (and now Bali cannot provide all the tourism needs and must BUY electricity from Java!) -- the JUNGALOW is designed with windows in two parts: lower part in glass, upper part is netted so as to allow a nice cool breeze.

Response from Tini:

Some guests, honestly, give us a bit of a challenge, with many 'special' requests, a romantic dinner with flowers and candles, or, - and here i take this opportunity to mention a few things we receive from our (believed) guests, such as specific diets, tours & activities.. then changing their plans... that might upset the booked driver who saved his day, refusing other clients, or the cook has prepared food... etc. We are essentially offering one thing, that is: ACCOMMODATION. As a service 'included in the rent" (different from hotels who charge for this!), we arrange transport to facilitate our guests needs while in Bali. Yet, we wish to make them aware of this: we have SEVEN HOUSES, we are a small family business, with limited means, many daily inquiries to process and deal with. Having lots of questions being asked about informations already CLEARLY stated in the Listing gives much extra work, we do our very best indeed to communicate in a "very timely" manner, but lets not hide that it means hours spent on the computer! We like to consider our Guests as educated, able to be independent, browsing on-line ahead of their trip, practicing tourism as an awareness & appreciation of a different culture, - and this can be quite different from what is expected in 'advanced' civilizations such as Singapore or Western countries, right? - Just spending a few minutes, for example, READING the description of the place, understanding its terms and House Rules, looking at the photos provided + all the hints we offer as to "What to see" & "what to do", like: Yoga, Rafting, swimming pools available, Tours & sight seeing, Art classes, healing sessions, massage, cycling, trekking, museums, and other enjoyable activities. Just hints, but by then also finding more infos by oneself in any "Lonely Planet" kind of Guide Book ... Such attitude generates a feeling of responsibility for one's journey... shows consideration for others. To us, sounds more 'sustainable" than relying on the Hosts to organise every step of the trip. This is, in our view, a whole new different approach to a modern "global" planet. Oh, forgive me, maybe i sound a bit of an idealist with "philosophical" thoughts??...

Response from Tini:

the fact is that, by law, the Governor of Bali has forbidden any Taxi company
in Ubud. Maybe to give a chance to private drivers to get work -
Reason why we recommend :
Either use our own drivers
Or
renting a Scooterr to explore the area.
Or have an "ojek" (taxi moto) who takes you around for about 2USD and provides helmet.
Thank you Charlotte for acknowledging our lovely Staff ... And the beauty of the River just down the steps.
