This villa is amazing！It's about 4 km distance from Ubud downtown and away from crowed and noisy. It is quiet and clean. There are many plants formed a canopy over the beatiful yard. On the second floor, there is a nice terrace，you can look at stars as you drink with friends there at night. Owner Made and the staff are very friendly. They always try to meet our requirements. Generally, it is a very nice place where is suitable for family or some frieds live together.
The staff was wonderful, attentive and accommodating. Breakfast was outstanding. The apartment was not as nice as it appeared on the pictures (kudos to the photographer) but everything was correctly represented.
I had bad experience with Madge's communication. On his listing, he describe an offer of cooking class. And that was the reason I booked his property for my parents visit in ubud. We weren't not expecting a fancy class. Just an hour of activity for the family. After booking the place, I tried to arrange a class with made 1 week in advance . He kept denying the arrangement with constant excuse of extensive class time. First, he says it takes 3 hrs, our 1 day stay won't have enough time for the class. Then tell me it takes 4-5 hrs. Then tell me the class only happen in the morning. Then it's about availability of the chef. He won't guarantee. After frustration in the booking, and reading the negative reviews of the place. we decided to book another place to stay instead. Quite a disappointment.
Unfortunately this was an extremely unsuccessful booking.
The villa that we booked (as depicted) was an entirely different to the property that they tried to get us to stay in. The second villa was not up to the standard of the place we had booked and the worst thing was that they didn't tell us that they had switched villas on us; we realised this ourselves when we double checked the pictures of the villa on Air BnB (there are very few street addresses in Bali, so it can be confusing).
The situation left us stranded in Ubud trying to find somewhere to stay at short notice.
The host has apologised and refunded our booking.
Writing this review finds us with conflicting feelings. The wonderful Balinese staff were gracious, kind, and as accommodating as they could be, but there were certainly some problems.
The room we booked was indeed the room in the photographs, we were delighted. Spacious and full of light, with 2 private rooms off of the main space…big bathroom, deck, and ‘living area’ with a king size bed: perfect for mixed age groups and families.
Breakfast was excellent and we did find a bottomless supply of coffee and water as stated on the website. The hot water advertised was instead a disappointing ‘luke’ warm. We managed to resolve this one ourselves and did get our hot showers after 2 days. The cooking lessons mentioned on the site were not available.
Expecting a private villa from the web description, we found multiple rooms and other guests. Be aware - not everyone gets the exact room in the photos. There are also several Villas; some guests had to move to another location mid stay- time wasted and frustrating! We also were asked to move to a second set of rooms but were okay doing this; the staff made the transition smooth and our new room was just as enjoyable. We attribute the lack of organization & confusion to be due to the bookings coming from multiple sources. All the rooms looked to be quite lovely, but not all rooms are on the upper floor with dramatic high ceilings and majestic views.
Other ‘cons’ included a hit and miss shuttle service to town, at times prompt but often demandingquite a wait. It is shared between all the guests, so essentially you are waiting for your turn. Also, the last shuttle from town is at 9 PM rather than the 10 PM stated. Be aware: to get the shuttle from town you have to call the villa first…traffic can make the 5-10 minute trip turn into 20 with up to a 40 minute wait. Taxis are about $5 US and quicker.
That said, we did really enjoy our stay. The location is lovely; a peaceful spot and the rice paddies at sunrise are a beautiful site. From the upper rooms the view is well worth any extra charge. Shuttling to and from Ubud was offset by the spaciousness and solitude. The ‘swimming’ pool is small and on the cool side, but we found a quick jump-in to be refreshing after a long day out. The gardens and pool add to the charm of the place; the architecture is beautiful.
Agung, Wayan, Ketut, and Koma lined us up with everything from laundry service to drivers for our adventures. They have a great deal on a driver/hiking guide to Gunung Batur - including a packed breakfast. They set us up with reasonable priced drivers for day excursions - both men were friendly, informative, and accommodating.
An enjoyable stay, but not quite up to the expectations advertised on the site. Would say 3 1/2 stars.
