I had a great time staying at this place. It was in a quiet location just a few minutes drive from the main part of Ubud village. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. They provided rides as needed were helpful in choosing things to do and see. Highly recommended!
We stayed for 3 nights and had an amazing time. Everyone was always so friendly and accomodating. The shuttle into Ubud made travelling around very convenient. A great place to stay!
This was my second time staying here and again I was incredibly happy! Wyan and the team made my stay as comfortable as possible, and their bright attitudes and delicious breakfast were icing on the cake. Definitely recommend!!
We absolutely loved the Gusde house and its location a bit south of the Ubud center in a quiet village in the rice fields. It takes about 10 min by scooter or car to the Ubud center, which was perfect for us. We loved the quiet of the village compared with the business of the Ubud center.
The accommodation is beautiful and as pictured on the photos. Very comfortable bed and everything was very clean.
Gusde the owner, Wayan the manager and all the staff were so kind and welcoming and lovely to chat to in the morning over the yummy breakfast (especially the nasi goreng).
Also Gusde was happy to organise pick up and drop off at the airport for a small extra fee upon arrival and departure, which made everything very easy for us.
We loved everything and had a wonderful time. Thanks so much Gusde & Wayan & Team for providing such a beautiful space.
We enjoyed every minute of it and hope to be back soon.
My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The staff were very friendly and helpful and drove and picked us up from town whenever needed. The room is very nice and comfortable and a lovely pool. I was hoping the accomm was more removed from ubud town centre in the rice fields but this street is getting quite heavily developed now so it was busier than I thought. I would recommend having a scooter to get to and from town everyday. Had a great three nights here and would highly recommend it to ubud visitors.
The Gusde house is absolutely beautiful and accommodating. The property and rooms are luxurious, and the pool to die for. I couldn't recommend this place more, and will absolutely return myself.
There aren't enough words for me to express how fantastic this experience was. Everyone who works at the villa is extremely kind and welcoming. They really go out of their way to make you feel at home. Wayan, the manager and main driver of the place, was so amazing. He made sure I was ok every day and safe every night coming home. He even organized the staff to provide me with a cake and sing me happy birthday on my birthday, as well as bring flowers to my room later that day. He loves his job, loves to share his country with the guests, and it comes through in everything he does.
The location itself was great. Be mindful, however, if you're looking to wake up to views of rice paddies, etc, this may not be the place for you, as it is situated in the middle of what would be considered the "suburbs" of Bali, but there were rice paddies all around it. I just didn't get to wake up to a view of them in the morning. But that was a little price to pay for the quiet and peacefulness of the actual neighborhood, as well as the amazing staff. I would totally come back here and spend more time. I truly enjoyed my trip to Ubud and much of it is due to Gusde House and Wayan himself.
