Lovely place. Nice house and clean skimming pool. Difficult to walk to the center because it is a busy road. But they have a nice driver and it is easy to catch a taxi back to the villa. The staff is very nice and also the garden is nice. For almost nothing you can do a massage at your little villa. The AC is working perfect. The only thing it is nog very clear in the text on airbnb that it is a shared pool. But anyway we had a great time.
Amazing stay. Ubud changed me! Big thanks to our hosts and especially Katut it was a pleasure talking to you.
The place as described is not with the actual host, they've very friendly staff to look after you. The accommodation for me was for the price/quality not up to what you could get/expect for Ubud.
Its next to the artery road leading to Ubud and because of the renovated house the roof is thin and its very noisy, cars, motorbikes and trucks.
For a traveler alone its very far out of town.
It was nice to have seen the place- but to be honest i cannot be as enthused as reviews below.
The Sanctuary was very beautiful. The gardens were amazing and the pool was very clean and cool. The staff were very welcoming and kind. Pancakes in the morning were excellent!
What a lovely tranquil little village. Surprisingly private with the lush gardens and enticing pool. Service and breakfast was lovely, helpful and generous. Not alot near by but the markets, spas, restaurants and monkey forest a short drive. Could of spent a few more days in Ubud to explore. Thanks especially to Imade and his wife.
We were greeted by the lovely Kethut who was waiting on the road to aid our driver. We loved our beautiful little apartment and I liked the way that the bottom floor was open air. And you can create privacy by closing the bamboo blinds all around.
The bedroom upstairs was just lovely as well and it was fantastic to have the air con pointing directly at the bed. We hired a scooter for the whole time and it was a fantastic way to get around.
The pool area and surrounding grounds are just lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast each day.
Would definitely recommend that people stay here.

About the Host, David And Brenda
David, my husband was a set designer and furniture designer for the movie industry in Los Angeles for thirty years and worked with the tops in the industry....Steven Spielberg, Jodie Foster, Robert Redford, Bruce Springsteen and many more. His built the Captains Chair for Star Trek Insurrection and had the most "ordered" bed in TV history from the TV hit, "Mad about You".
He designed furniture for many top Restaurants in Los Angeles from the Saddle Peak Lodge in Malibu to Malibu Adobe with Ali McGraw. His resume is extensive and his client list is long....Billy Crystal, David Hasselhof, Arnold Schwarzanegger to Keenan Wayans.
He has translated that skill into building ten amazingly different houses since he's come to Bali. Our house is amazing and you will see why he is so in demand!
I have a variety of interests that keep me busy. I have spent years doing spiritual growth work and now work with others with addiction and codependency issues. I love this work and the chance to give back what I was taught. I've been an artist my whole life so our home is filled with original art ( mine and others) and I have an awesome studio..Anyone that loves to paint will fall in love here. My latest passion is teaching Zumba, What a blast!
As you can see, we are both loving our life and filling the hours manifesting our dreams. We both are creative artists and love to explore the world and the people in it.
Since we've been in Bali we've been taking in South East Asia. We love Vietnam, and Thailand for their amazing cuisine.
We are frequently traveling, so we are sorry that we don't get to meet all our guests, but we leave you in the hands of an amazing staff and manager, Eko and Sakming, who will be your contact people.
