Located 5 minutes out of the Ubud Centre (via scooter or car) this beautiful 2 bedroom Villa is located off the road and set in a luscious jungle garden. From organising us scooters to day trips and everything in between, Wayan's attention to detail was so appreciated The double story Villa is extremely quiet and has access to balconies from both bedrooms with picturesque views of the jungle landscape - the main outdoor bathroom on the ground floor is open and you have access to the beautiful shared pool. I highly recommend this property if you want authentic balinese accomodation not too far from the hustle and bustle of Ubud.

Staying at this villa in the Garden Cottage was such great moments ! Everything went perfectly from the beginning to the end. Great communication, checkin was a breeze, and the house was beyond my expectations ! It's a solid construction, beautifully furnished, great bed, and this veranda ! Maybe a bit darker than on the pictures but hey, I was seduced by the "jungle" look like environment, so it come with it. The location is perfect as you feel like you are secluded, although you are literally a few minutes far from the heart of the animation of Ubud with a motorcycle. The swimming pool is great to relax, and all the staff was lovely, from Wayan the house keeper to Made the driver and Mary, everyone is organised for a perfect stay. Go for it !

The place was perfect for us as a family of 4 (2 Active boys aged 8 & 9). Very close to all the main activities in UBUD (10 minute walk / 2 minute scooter ride). Wayan was exceptionally hospitable and her team were much the same. All in all we had a wonderful stay at the Garden Cottage.

The cottage was large and airy, set in a beautiful garden overlooking a jungle. Pool though small was adequate for us. It was very clean. The beds were comfortable and we slept well. We especially liked hanging out in both large verandas in the evenings. The location however was quite a walk into town. We were blessed with very cool weather so it was not so bad, however in warmer weather it could be an issue. Wayan was very helpful and responsive. The toilet on the ground level could do with a bit of maintenance though.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Garden Cottage! It was spacious and comfortable. Very central and yet quiet and away from all the noise of the main streets. We walked down further from house and managed to spot quite a few birds including the Javan Kingfisher :) We had breakfast at the cottage on 2 days, healthy and very tasty. We would definitely recommend the place and would love to come back!

Great house and great location! Walking distance to nearly everything in Ubud. House was clean and exactly like the pictures. Only problem was no hot water in the outdoor shower but we never complained as it really didn't bother us as we had two other showers.

Response from Wayan:
So sorry to hear you didn't mention no hot water in the shower. An easy fix. Probably just ran out of gas and the staff is always available to bring a new can. We always appreciate hearing if there is a problem so we can get it fixed ASAP. Thanks for the feedback.

We stayed 10 days at the garden cottage, and it was a really great experience. The house is lovely. One bedroom upstairs and one downstairs. Some of the pictures in Airbnb are not correct though. They are showing an antique platform queenbed, and this is from another house, so the only thing I will say we where missing was some kind of sofa or lounge furniture to hang out and relax at night. We thought that there would be that queenbed from the pictures, that we could use in the evening. Instead we ended up sleeping all of us upstairs (2 adults and 2 children) and then using the downstairs masterbedroom as livingroom. Its 10-15 minutes walk down hill to the city center. It doesnt sound like much, but its pretty hot walking home up hill with two small children! A motorbike is a really good idea. The staff was fantastic! Wayan was so good with our 3 year old. Taking her to look for flowers, playing and talking with her. We miss her already! If in Ubud, just book the house, it can only be good!!! ;-)

Thank you for your glowing review. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay at the villa. Wayan is a gem and always so very helpful. You were here during an extremely hot and dry period. It has started to rain now and is much cooler. We are always rearranging furniture and thank you for reminding us to take off the old photos of the platform bed. The new bed is the four poster with the mosquito net.
