We have recently returned from our 9 day trip to Bali where we stayed in the 3 bedroom villa of Jacques and Anita. Upon arrival we were very happy with the place. The major problem we had was getting towels daily. There was 6 of us staying there and 3 of them were children…
Response from Anita:
Thank you for your comments and we will certainly address those that we can. Of course during rainy season it is difficult for anything to dry. I understand there were additional visitors we did not count on for towel use and I acknowledge the communication issues we experienced. As for the ants, we know that the smallest crumbs will attract them. It's like they have sonars :). We ourselves live in an open air cottage in the middle of rice fields and have to contend with the as well. Wiping counters and kitchen floors regularly has been most effective for us. It seems the kids has a great time, and apart from your suggestions, I'm glad you enjoyed this beautiful part of Bali and this lovely untrammeled area around Ubud. Thank you again for staying with us. Jacques and Anita
We stayed in this house for 5 days and each of them was an absolute pleasure. The house is really large, and really clean. Also, the situation is brilliant, in the middle of the rice fields, something like 30 minutes by walk to Ubud going through an amazing neighborhood with peop…
The property was a lot larger than anticipated, it was such a pleasant surprise and we adored everything about the house. There was a great restaurant right next to the house and only about a 25-30 minute walk to the main city or a quick 5 minute taxi ride. The pool was so lovely…
Great to be in the middel of the ricefields, away from the busy traffic of Ubud. Good starting pont to discover surroundings. Our family didd this by scooter and personal driver. All very well arranged by Anita and Jack. The house is great and comfortable. Very friendly and helpf…
Tourists Beware! We booked this property as tourist accommodation for 8 nights expecting a reasonably furnished and equipped property. Very soon after arrival this was revealed to be misguided. This is a sparsely furnished property for long-term lease, NOT a holiday rental. Ther…
Response from Anita:
It is regrettable that we could not satisfy Nick despite our daily checkups and the genuine efforts of this sincere Indonesian family. Admittedly the kitchen amenities were insufficient upon arrival and we certainly accept responsibility for that as we continue to work with the family in appreciating the standard of hospitality expected by foreigners. In fairness, Nick fails to remark that the very next day and despite the owner’s purchase of all new quality kitchenware, china, ample new towels, and new custom made linen, new bath mats etc etc.etc.. we still could not completely satisfy Nick’s daily growing “list” of grievances which included a new broom, cleaning products, duvet covers, artwork and as I later learned, even a vanity makeup desk for his wife, which the owner actually went out and bought along with 2 new flat screen televisions. Nick’s opinion on the cleanliness is disingenuous and simply not true. Cleanliness is a priority for us and the home was thoroughly cleaned, spotless and is always well kept. His complaint about the price is also baffling as we maintain that a clean modern 2 story home so close to Ubud, with a panoramic view of the rice fields, 6 rooms, 3 bathrooms, with pool, AC and free Wifi is indeed good value at $60 per night. Nick left in a lurch after 5 days without a forwarding address. Even though all reasonable requests were satisfied he then requested a refund in spite of the Airbnb cancellation policy. Clearly advertised as a house rental, it is now reasonable to think that Nick expected a full service hotel for a family of 4 on a backpacker’s budget. Hosts should also be aware that Nick has a son who wets the bed. Now, any responsible parent out of respect for personal property would feel obliged to immediately sponge the urine out with a towel and water to minimize staining. Instead, and quite unbelievably, they left the urine absorbing into a new mattress for hours while Nick sat fiddling on his laptop and his wife fiddling in the kitchen. He only begrudgingly assisted when he saw me and 5’2 Anita in lifting the mattress to be washed and dried. As a parent, it is hard to understand such irresponsibility and disregard for private property damage caused by your own child. Nick also failed to appreciate that the homeowner did not charge for damages. He then tried to skip out on the cleaning fee which he himself proposed. Nick then demonstrated a further disregard for private property and legal liabilities by not notifying the owners of his departure and the whereabouts of 2 motorbikes. He then displayed indignation that we followed up at the owners request as they had no other means. He failed to appreciate that motorbikes are a means of livelihood, theft of motorbikes is a common occurrence and the owners would have been justified in filing a police report. While the boys were delightful, respectful, well mannered and seemed to be having a great time, I would not recommend hosting this family on account of Nick and his lists. It’s unfortunate if Nick actually considered the degree to which his public unconstructive remarks and thoughtless misrepresentations could adversely affect this family’s livelihood in spite of their genuine efforts make his family happy. This is a lovely modern house, well maintained, has and continues to be rented with nothing but praise for the house and appreciation for our personal attention and the warm Indonesian hospitality.
