To say that Kadek was great would be an understatement. He was incredible. From meeting us and showing us around the villa to a tour of Ubud one day we couldn't have been happier. Super nice. Super helpful. Always willing to go the extra mile for you. He even made my wife a drink to help her with an upset stomach that left her in bed for a day. The villa itself is spectacular. Both in amenities and location I really don't think it can be beat. A quick 15 minute walk to Udud center and in a really quiet area that has everything you might need (laundry, groceries, restaurants, etc.) within walking distance. Highly recommend. If we come to Ubud again we'll certainly try to stay here.

The best place we stayed at in Bali, beautiful place and a wonderful, quiet location. Kadek is the coolest, he was incredibly helpful, from picking us up at the airport to helping us rent scooters and generally guiding us during our stay in Ubud.

We had a slight hiccup when we landed. I reserved a driver for 11am, but Kadek reserved it for 11pm so we ended up taking a random driver to the parking lot. We were dumped at the parking lot and had no idea where the actual villa was, but eventually figured it out after asking some people. Other than that slight hiccup in the beginning, everything was great! Kadek was a great helper and extremely helpful. He got us whatever we needed, climbed a tree to get us coconut, dropped off laundry to be cleaned, made us breakfast, shuttled one of us to our next hotel with luggage on his scooter and helped us book roundtrip tickets to the Gilis'. We also left an item at the villa when checking out and he delivered it to the person he dropped off at the hotel days later. The villa is described exactly as is, everything was in working condition. The pool was great for dips to cool off from the humid weather and the outdoor shower was excellent. My only wish was that we stayed more than the 2 nights. Definitely would reccomend for others to stay here.

We would like to recommend this villa most highly. The description/photographs are perfectly accurate but to really understand how nice the place is you need to come and see for yourself. Its host Gert-Peter was very helpful in answering our questions ahead of our visit and was immediately responsive when needed. The caretaker Kadek does a great job at making you feel truly welcome and at keeping the place clean and beautiful (rooms, bathrooms, pool, garden...). He is also very helpful in making driver arrangements and unless you know Bali already I would highly suggest that you ask his advice about visiting specific places. In general, you may want to consider hiring local guides rather than try following on your own itineraries from guidebooks. You may run into disappointing extortion traps (ex. Sayan river walk or Besakih temple visit). Being walking distance from Ubud center yet far away to enjoy peaceful atmosphere is just perfect. The restaurants listed by the owners were really nice too. Thank you Kadek and Peter!

A great airbnbn. Pickup from the airport went smoothly and we were able to stop along the way. The house and gardens are as beautiful as they appear on the internet. We didn't like the walk to Ubud - narrow street without a sidewalk with lots of traffic, so we took taxis which were easy to get. Kadek cooked us breakfast everyday after we gave him money to buy fruit and eggs. He also arranged transport and a massage at the house. It was nice to walk the little road and see rice paddies and little businesses. The Dream Cafe is across the street if you don't want to go back into Ubud for dinner.

it's a beautiful house. pool is great. Kadek, the house manager, is just wonderful. he's so attentive to your needs. i did have a few concerns though. 1. the wireless is really inferior. was here for 5 weeks, enrolled in a school and with work so needed the internet. nearly every simple warung has excellent wifi. however the villa's is very very slow and extremely unreliable. 2. kadek became quite sick and was in the hospital for quite a few days. certainly we understood this and were happy to pitch in to help clean. however we weren't able to clean the pool and apparently there isn't a substitute to help out when Kadek isn't available. the pool was unusable for nearly a week and emails to the owner went unanswered. 3. construction noise - obviously this isn't the fault of the owners but there is a LOT of noise from construction across the alleyway. if you're wanting to have peace and quite in the gardens while laying by the pool, keep this in mind overall i was extremely happy with the rental. other than the pool situation, communications with the owner were answered in the timely manner. again, Kadek is wonderful. the area also has lots of great spas, warungs/cafe and drivers. we used Wayan Doblet as a taxi driver. he was extremely friendly, spoke english quite well and was happy to accommodate our schedule. Bubu Warung was a favorite, as was Dream Cafe next door. Cafe Schnitzel is down in central Ubud and truly delicious!

Response from Kadek:
Hello Grant, I am very surprised. I never received an e mail from you during your stay! I checked my mails and the mails on air bnb: no mail from you! Because we didn't receive any mail from you we really thought that everything was OK! We had only a mail from Kadek once he was back at work and he did not mention any problem with the pool. This was the first time that Kadek was not able to work. And unfortunately he had malaria and was unable to attend any issues! We are very sorry your messages did not reach us as we could have organized a substitute inmediately in order to clean the pool and to be at your service for any other matters. Until now nobody was complaining about internet but sure for professional use it is not fast enough. We will change it soon. We do regret all this very much! Warm regards Peter
