Interaction with Guests
Our manager Kadek comes every day to clean the house and the pool.
He likes to advise and help you.
He is a very friendly guy!
He can make breakfast for you if you like, you pay only the food he will buy for you.
There are many art galleries, local warung, restaurants and spas within strolling distance and the centre of Ubud is a mere five minutes by taxi, 10 minutes by bicycle or a 20 minute walk.
You can rent bicycles & motorbikes or cars nearby.
I'll leave you my list of my favorite masseurs and drivers and secret spots and restaurants.
Penestanan now has its very own yoga studio, meditation center, two charming restaurants and a cafe so you don't even have to get on your motorbike.
We can organize a pick up from the airport with a driver of our confidence.The price is the same as a taxi: 300 000 rupiahs.
For all reservation for 1 week and more the pick up is free!
We have also drivers/tourist guides for your sightseeing tours.
Taxis are available 100m away from the villa.
Other Things to Note
You can access to the villa with a scooter and park it in front of the maison.Ce which is very significant for those who use this means of locomotion. for others it can be a bit disturbing.
Opposite the house is a good cheap restaurant, very convenient to not too far out. As against some conversations scraps can get to your patio.
Please don't smoke inside the house. Outside is OK.
We don't ask for a deposit!
Please replace if you damage something.
From Sep 18 - 23, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
We had a great stay. Beautiful private villa with great garden and large pool where we enjoyed our morning laps. Rested on the hut while reading and snoozing. Kadek is a wonderful young man and nothing was too much trouble. He took pride in the villas beauty.
We love the gang that the villa is hidden in with beautiful walks with locals who were friendly and interested in us. A massage spa next door which we visited almost daily. Great location. Good experience and would recommend to my many Bali lover friends.
Peter a répondu très rapidement à toutes nos questions lors de la réservation et nous a contacté lors de notre arrivée à la villa. La villa est très grande, située sur un petit chemin au milieu des rizières, à quelques minutes du centre ville en scooter. Quartier calme , qui malgré des constructions récentes, reste habité par des locaux. Parking privé devant la villa pour les scooters. Les informations sur la villa et les photos correspondent parfaitement à la réalité des lieux. Maison très propre, jardin et piscine très bien entretenus, végétation luxuriante, aucun vis à vis. Parlons enfin de Kadek... le bonus de la maison. Kadek est d'une gentillesse, d'une politesse et d'un professionnalisme exemplaire. Il a préparé pour nous les petits déj, nous a donné pleins de bons tuyaux pour les ballades et les excursions aux alentours. Il s'occupe parfaitement des tâches ménagères, de la piscine, du jardin, des offrandes et des fleurs le matin au réveil... Nous avons même fait avec lui une ballade en fin d'après-midi en scooter avec lui. Difficle de quitter la villa et Kadek. Notre famille a été ravie de notre séjour et nous ne manquerons pas de retourner à la villa lors de notre prochain séjour à Ubud.
I had a great stay at this villa. Peter is a friendly host and had helped to arrange everything smoothly. The housekeeper, Kadek, was also very friendly. Apart from cleaning the house and cooking breakfast, he had also helped to arrange our trek to Gunung Batur and white water rafting at Ayung River at great prices.
The only bad thing was that there was some construction activity near the villa. So there was some noise throughout the day. Nothing unbearable, but still a little irritating at times.
That aside, the penestanan village was lovely. It was spacious and away from the hustle and bustle of Ubud. But not too far away. You can reach the centre of Ubud in about 15 minutes by foot.
If you do not want to venture out too far, there are also plenty of warungs and bars around the area too. In fact there is a decent one (Dream Cafe) just right at the doorstep.
Overall, I had a great stay and I would recommend this villa.
La villa est superbe, propre bien entretenu y compris la piscine. Jardin luxuriant. Très bon accueil à proximité des services et à 20 minutes à pied du centre d'Ubud. Les deux grandes chambres ont des accés séparés. Dommage qu'il n'y ait pas de volets ou rideaux opaques pour le solelle du matin.
Très bon séjour reposant.
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.
Great room environment, the owner is very enthusiastic reception us, got us dinner, also specially to make breakfast the next day.
Chat and play with us and give us the way, tell us where is the fun of it.
Warm service really touched us!
And thank you again!!!Best wishes!
