We had a wonderful experience at Vicky and Nyoman's place! The area was perfect! You are away from all the hustle and bustle, but still just a short walk to Ubud center. The rooms were true to the photos and it felt very homey. The driver Nyoman truly made our trip!! He helped with transport throughout the entire vacation, planned an amazing (and highly recommended) tour of Bali, and was very flexible when we had changing plans. We loved the place so much, that we changed plans and came back for one more night! Vicki was very helpful on short notice, and arranged our transport upon arrival. Ubud is incredible, and there is a great restaurant right next door. Overall, this was an amazing experience and I highly recommend this place! Thank you!
We spend two nights in this Airbnb. We enjoyed it very much. It's just outside the city center (2 km), so you leave all the hassle behind you when going to this place. There is a very good Warung next door for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. Be sure to try the pork ribs here. The Airbnb itself is comfortable and spacious with two bedrooms, a decent sized bathroom and two patio's. Only downside we found was the noise from traffic passing the house. Not too much, but you'll hear it a bit.
If you seek for a traditional balinese style place to stay, this guesthouse suits perfectly. The house is very neat and clean with lots of traditional decoration and useful things. There is a kitchen outside with a fridge and all the necessary dishes. The house is very comfortable for 3 guests stay. We really enjoyed our stay during a week in March 2015.
Mr. Nyoman picked us at the airport in the middle of the night and checked-in the house that was so nice of him. He also provided us with motorbikes for rent and was our driver on his car for 2 days of sightseeing when we went to Bratan Lake and climbed Batur mountain.
The house has an every day room service.
We really recommend this place for staying!
Ms. Viki's olace was amazing to stay at! He son Chris was on premise in a different building and gave all us all the information we needed about the property as well as how to get around town.
The space itself was really beautiful with its own porch and access to kitchen, which we didn't really use, but was readily available to us.
Maday who's family actually owns the property offered us rides everywhere. He was super warm and knew all the good places to eat. He also arranged our boat ride to Gili Air for us and drove us to and from the port, which is a long drive.
This family is well known in Ubud as well. At night when we would catch cabs back to the house, we would tell the cab drivers the name of the property and they would all automatically say " oh Chris! He's my friend! Good guy!"
Over all it was an amazing short stay.
They also have 3 women working daily on premises to clean and tidy.
I wish we had a longer stay in Ubud to really take in the surroundings, but I would definitely recommend this place for either a long or short stay.
The first day we walked into town which took about 20 minutes. The road isn't really built for pedestrians, but it's safe. I would highly recommend to rent a scooter or negotiate cab rides / rides from Maday instead of walking to and from town.
A cab ride generally cost less than a couple dollars US.
I can't wait to come back!
It is my first stop in Bali, which is life-long memory and worthy. I landed in the airport at 4 am, an early morning and the driver Nyoman has already waited me for 2 hours. Thanks to him, I came here safely in the mid-night. Even more surprisingly, I had my temporary bed for rest in the maid's room since my room can only be checked in around 11 am. The landlords, Vikie and Chris were always very prompt to answer all my questions and helped me beyond my expectation.
After the first day, I already felt it as home plus I luckily owned the whole courtyard just for myself. My neighborhood is also very friendly and peaceful. The Made cafe and Ado Be are great local and healthy restaurants just in walking distance.
It is a warm home stay to me and hope I can come to visit again.
The house was nice and clean and exactly as expected from the photos! I really loved the balinese style and the huge veranda!
Chris was very helpful in organizing motorbike rental and transport when we left! He also had good local knowledge to share when we needed it. One rainy night when we could leave the house he also ordered pizza for me and my friends.
Also Vicky who wasn't there at the time sent me a few email to welcome me in the house!!!
Highly recommended! :)
Our pick-up at the airport was perfectly planned by Ms Vicki and Mr Nyoman. The information which we received beforehand was really helpful and informative. Mr Nyoman was already waiting for us when we came out of the airport.
When we reached the bungalow we were welcomed by Chris.
The bungalow looks like on the photos. The location and the environment was really nice, next to the rice fields.
But you have to know that lizards, frogs and spiders may visit you in the rooms, which I was afraid of.
The toilet should be renewed soon, especially the toilet bowl! (Bungalow No. 5)
I can recommend you the restaurant next door. All the dishes are so delicious, especially the grilled dishes. And the waitresses are super friendly as well.
We spent the 3 days with Mr Nyoman as a tour guide. And it was awesome! He showed us the beautiful rice paddies, coffee plantation, monkey forest and organized the climbing of Mt Batur. Thank you Mr Nyoman for that! It was fantastic! He made our stay in Ubud unforgettable.
