This villa was, by far, our best booking of our trip. The host, Susan, is easy to deal with as is Ketut. Both made us feel wanted and welcome. The compound itself is inviting, and feels like a home away from home, the grounds and pool sublime.
Even the geckos were friendly! We three Canadians couldn't have been more pleased.
We were 4 guys from Germany and we have booked this compoud for two weeks. The bungalow is 5 min from Ubud-Center (Jl. Raya Ubud). So it was easy to just use the motorbike from the bungalow (Jl. Penestanan) to enter Ubud-center. Also a lot of good restaurants and Spa´s are around this Bungalow so it is easy to find something to eat in the evening and for breakfast in the morning. I can recomment Lilly&Lala (fresh and healthy food), Bubu´s Warung (Motorbike-rent for 50.000 irp per day) and Bayu´s kitchen (very good Springrolls and burger), Kue (chocolate, cake´s and cookies and coffee).
But now more about the bungalow and our arrival. We arrived (at 18th of September 2014) in front of Bubu´s Warung. There our Housekeeper Ketut was already waiting for us. He is a nice Guy and was always arround the Bungalow-Area so that we could ask a lot. He also gave us a mobile-phone so that we were able to call him everytime when there was a problem or we got lost in the city-center ( :-) ). So we felt very survived and comfortable. The bungalow looks very beautiful and the pictures you can see tell only the half of the truth. The pool is very clean and regulates it self by a good working and quite pump. The bungalow also gots a relaxing room with a little fountain (good place to read a book), and an good furnished kitchen (with refrigerator, microwave, toaster, gas stove usw.). You can go to the near BINTANG-Supermarket to get all stuff for self-sufficiency. The bathroom is without a roof so you can listen to the sounds of the nature while enjoying a relaxing bath in the big bathtub. There is also a Safe for all your valuables (also a laptop fits in). Moreover you can hang around in the beatiful garden it got also a hammock and some garden furniture. All in all it was the best thing to choose this bungalow. The landlady Susan is very courteous and was very cared about us. Was really a nice stay and we would book it definitely again. 3
Loved our time at this place, quiet, lush with room to do yoga, sit, swim or eat at the fab Bubu warung located next door. As 3 women Ketut looked after us by driving us wherever we needed to go if we were a bit tired but the 20 min ubud back pathway through the small paddies of Penestanan was wonderful. Highly recommend Susan's villa. We had the 2 small villas for 3 of us and was perfect.
Great position however it was very very hard to find at first and took ages! I would recommend to get an actual address or talk to Ketut before because there is no villa name/sign. If you are being dropped to the villa i recommend saying it is behind bubu warang - that seemed to help us a bit
In theory Susan's house is great - good position in a village very close to Ubud (walkable) setup and layout was great as well.. but there was no air con (as listed) which lead to windows having to be open and that lead to real bug problem.
The outdoor bathroom was unreal - we loved it! Very cool, water was nice and hot and the pressure was good.
Pool and garden area was well kept and very relaxing, had a real 'ubud atmosphere' that was very peaceful
The wifi was very good!
Susans houses were a delight to stay in, they are better in real life than in the photos. A beautiful elegant and simple style that was a thrill to walk into. We loved the village and walked everywhere, an easy walk into Ubud main town ,but we often didnt leave the local village as great warungs and cafes where right there. I especially like the bathroom in Pondok Maya, and the meditation room was a surprise and a treat. Could even lie out there with the open roof but be undercover from the rain! magic. We had both houses as were a family and this worked well, the older style house is still very pretty and huge spaces in the bedroom and bathrooms. Ketut and the other staff were wonderful, a treat for us to experience. And Ketut went out of his way to take us to some interesting cultural things , as well as a few unexpected airport trips. I would like to come back again as my trip was cut a bit short this time, but would have happily stayed the 10 days ...and more if we could. A wonderful spot to be.
