I stayed two nights with my sister in May 2015, and we cannot say enough good things about Made and the villa.
Made is probably the best Airbnb host I have encountered. He was accommodating and friendly and helped us with everything from renting a motorbike, to booking taxis and trips, to letting us borrow a cell phone during our stay, to giving (excellent) restaurant recommendations, to setting up in-villa massages.
The villa itself is stunning, even moreso than the pictures convey. It is wonderful set and integrated into the rice fields around, with large glass windows throughout, and partially open bathrooms. There are few better ways to wake up than with a shower overlooking a rice terrace and the sound of birds chirping. Its clear that a lot of attention to detail was given in designing the house, as it was incredibly beautiful at all levels, and a pleasing mixture of modern and Balinese styles.
We'd also like to give a shoutout to the driver, Mansuk. We loved him so much we asked him to transport us between our hotels throughout the island for the next week, and he has been fantastic.
One small complaint: the hot water did not seem to be working at all in the second bathroom (non-master). The shower was painfully cold.
A small price to stay for what has so far been our favorite accommodation in Bali, and among our favorites of all time.
We had a wonderful time staying here and could not recommend it more highly. The location is serene and the house is beautifully designed. The staff were very personable and we had lovely meals made by Sugi, Nyoman and Putri. Made our host made everything extremely easy, was always available and was a gem when it came to organising transport etc. We wish we could live at Bennu house! Thanks again to Made and his staff.
This place is amazing! Amazing views, secluded but still only 10 minutes to town (and also a fun ride). Definitely will return.
House Bennu was definitely love at first sight. This charming rustic villa surrounded with authentic touch is surrounded in a beautiful green garden settled in the middle of the ricefields of Ubud over looking the Agung Mountain. House Bennu is truly a little hidden secret sanctuary to experience the true Bali. Made is a true host. Good service & communication. Excellent drivers, on time and helpful. The villa has great staf who prepare daily fresh traditional Balinese breakfast at the villa. Highlights outdoor bathtub with a lush green view, massage at the villa outdoor at sunset and the freshly prepared candlelight dinner. Made thank you for the wonderfull experience!
I loved the unique offerings by Made so much I stayed in four different places over my week in Bali. All have the mark of elegance and beauty. Made is an excellent host and brings his joy into all interactions. This villa is stunning and has a beautiful indoor/outdoor flow surrounded by the rice fields. Full moon from the outside bath was a highlight.
Very beautiful the villa! Like the most beautiful one ever see! Can't be more happy to stay!!! Love it and sure will go back again!!
