Interaction with Guests
Ketut will be on call to answer any queries. He will call by each morning to make sure everything is ok with both you and the house.
Penestanan is becoming an incredibly popular village. Just far enough out of the town centre to get you away from the madness of Ubud Centre, but close enough to walk or scoot into town if you wish to,. There are many artisans and cute cafes etc. At ight you will often hear the Gamelon music coming form the village nearby....
Hire a scooter, walk or catch a ride with a local driver.
Other Things to Note
“Will air-conditioning be required?”
As Ubud is much cooler than the coastal areas a fan is usually sufficient for our guests. The nights are warmer from November to March.
“How do I get to/from the airport?”
We offer an airport transfer service for a fee of Rp300,000. Alternatively, you can get a taxi from the 'arrivals' bay. The journey usually takes about an hour, depending on traffic.
“Are the mosquitoes a problem in Ubud?”
Like all tropical locations, Ubud has mosquitoes (non malarial) - This differs at different times of the year. All beds have mosquito canopies and insect repellant is on hand if needed
Light Menu available for small extra fee:
*10% service charge will be added on all food service.
*You will be billed upon check-out.
Nice little house next to a great Warung.
The location of the villa is great. It's just outside the busy center of Ubud, but still within walking distance (or a few minutes bu scooter). The warung (Bubu Warung) in front of the house is great. Very nice traditional Balinese food made by a nice lady.
The house is not very big, but the porch outside makes it great to sit outside. Perfect place to stay if you are planning some trips around Ubud.
Me and my girl friend stayed at Susans cottage for 3 nights. The cottage is beautiful, has its own private pool surrounded with a lush garden. The staff came every day to make the bed and clean.
The house itself is close to many restaurants and shops in Ubud to reach by foot in a few minutes. Susan was very helpful and organized a driver to pick us up from the airport. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend her place to our friends.
Staff was helpful... Hot water did not work the first day but they did fix it the very next day. Close to several restaurants and they were helpful in letting me rent a scooter. The bathtub and meditation areas were very unique and special Not sure I would stay here again though, somewhat loud between neighbors as its a tight fit between all other people around you. I would probably find a place with air conditioning and includes breakfast as many in Ubud do. Host did respond to questions but didn't necessarily check in and make sure I was able to check in, and commenter that the hot water was tricky when really it just wasn't working... They did did it big communication with the host is always helpful, or an apology for not having hot water on the first night.
Thank you Chad for your kind words as to the many positive and charming aspects of the cottage. It was very unfortunate that the hot water decided to have a problem right when you arrived. As you can appreciate, we certainly do not plan for these things to occur. Ketut and I were in constant communication during the situation until it was remedied which as you say was immediately. Our guests comfort is of utmost importance to us and will continue to be.
Susan's cottage, with its beautiful garden was perfect for our holiday. Off the main road, it's very quiet and private, but only a couple of minutes walk and we were at Alchemy Café up the road for a delicious, nourishing breakfast each morning. We loved walking along the stream, taking our choice of direction to go either to the Bintang supermarket/ATM/money changer or to Lala & Lilis (great food and atmosphere, inexpensive - we were regulars) and on to the Penestanan Steps and into Ubud. We had wonderful massages at the salon at the Banana Leaf café resort complex.
Ketut met us at the airport and transferred us back for our return journey. He is a courteous and safe driver and reliable in his duties.
If you want to feel that you are "living" in Ubud, this lovely accommodation is for you.
This cottage is authentic to Bali with it's traditional style, furnishings and tranquil native garden. The bifold doors open to connect you with nature whilst relaxing inside this quaint cottage that feels like home. The bath and mediation room were gorgeous!
It is quiet, secure and yet so close to many restaurants. Bali Bridges and Clear Kafe opposite the beautiful temple are a 10 minute walk. Bubu's warung in front is good food and they deliver to the Villa, very handy for breakfast. The bali black rice porridge with banana is the go! Our favourite restaurant was Element a little down the road on foot. Recommend the tuna steak and Barramundi risotto. Good prices and service.
We loved the location and Ketut the host was kind and responsive to all our needs. Susan 's communication is good and prompt. We will definitely return! Thankyou Susan for a wonderful stay.
We stayed one month in Bali in ten places and this house is definitely one we will remember. We wouldn't want to leave!
