What Guests didn't like: Occasional geckos, far from Seminyak/Kuta, no nightlife in the area, not having views from their bungalows.
Respect the room, respect our staff, love Bali.
Jing and Wayana are AMAZING!!! 100% awesome communication from the booking process, to directions, to questions about Uluwatu and things to do during our stay, to even suggestions on things to do at our next stop after Uluwatu. Jing sat with us the first evening we arrived and drew out a hand written map for us with "off the beaten path suggestions", which we used throughout our stay. SO awesome!!!!! If you stay here, you can expect the best in all categories- hosts, accommodations, location, service and beach views. Their villa was first class all the way. Beautiful property, pool, flowers, scenery. Room was clean and perfect for our 3 night stay. Incredible location in relation to beaches (5 minute Moped ride to Padang Padang, Nyang Nyang and dreamland beach), restaurants, great places to watch the sunset/sunrise, and just minutes from the big beach parties in this city. Our friends stayed at Jing and Wayana's place for their honeymoon, and that's house we knew to book this villa. I would recommend this villa to any family or friends going to Uluwatu!! We will definitely be back to stay here on our next trip to Uluwatu next year. Thank you for everything, friends!! Give us a call if you ever come to Texas :)
Had a lovely time here. Jing made us feel welcome and pointed out the hotspots on a map for us. He seemed very genuine and really wanted us to have the best time possible. He helped organise a scooter. The room was perfect and the view from the pool area is unbelievable. If you stay here I recommend getting a scooter to explore the local area.
It was exactly like the pictures. Peaceful and quiet with a million dollar view from the cliff. Rent a scooter and you'll be set for a good time in Uluwatu. Jing and Wayana were great hosts and kept checking in with me to make sure everything was alright. I had a great time staying here.
Jing met with us when we arrived and showed us around the property and answered questions about the area. We spent 5 nights at this villa: room was clean and comfortable, grounds were immaculate and staff was friendly and helpful. Would stay again!
Well, first of all it is not a private villa. Uluwatu Cottages is a facility, that has 2 stars on (website hidden). The garden, view and pool is beautiful. We had a few problems, there are many lizards in the facility, they were even in our room. Insects, ants and spiders as well. And one night when we arrived there was no electricity. Took more than half an hour for the power to get back. No hair dryer in the rooms. There was no shower curtain, no shower cabin or bathtub. You take a shower on the floor just next to toilet seat. And the bathroom door was broken as well, which will be annoying if you're staying with someone you're not close to.
We met with Wayana she told us some nice places, my recommendations will be Single Fin and Yeye's Warung. The place is far from the city and transport is expensive. We took a ride from the hotel to Padang Padang beach for 100thousand rubias 3 mins by driving, but we took a ride to 40min away airport by another transport service costs 200thousand rubies. So make sure you arrange your own transport. The facility needs to improve itself.
As your hosts we believe that many of the negative points could have been better avoided through better, timely communication.
We've rarely had guests call us at 12:30 midnight to ask for directions. Following that, your taxi driver got lost repeatedly and called us back at at 1:00am, 1:20 am and 1:35am. I'm not sure if this is proper guest behaviour, but we certainly dealt with it patiently and happily welcomed you to our cottages and arranged our very best room with the ocean view, which you had specially requested for.
The next morning, Wayana sat down with you and patiently asked how everything was going. You happily accepted our advice on things to do and local recommendations and mentioned nothing about lizards, bugs, bathroom doors or power outages.
What I find most upsetting is that you would all of a sudden lash out on us, after we had done so much to try to make your trip enjoyable and satisfactory. A lost driver charging for an expensive ride while trying to find us at 2am ends up being our fault now too?
We actually left you a good review as well, but if we had seen this, we'd be much less likely to recommend you to any future Airbnb hosts.
We were warmly welcomed by Jing when we arrived. He and Wayana were wonderful about helping to organize I've a driver to meet us at the airport. The room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. All the staff were very friendly and provided excellent service. We ate at a few different places around, but the food provided here was the best we had. A 10 minute walk takes you to the surfers beach and a wonderful show watching surfers..we even saw a couple of whales breaching. We also really appreciated the care and cleanliness of the pool. We would highly recommend this accomodation.

About the Host, Jing And Wayana
Bali-fornia: Jing is from California and Wayana is from Bali. Our family loves travel, our island, and our doors are open to fun-loving travelers.
Hi there. I worked at Airbnb for Indonesia market development. I go between Singapore and Bali. My wife and daughter will most likely be hosting you.
I studied at Berkeley and came out to the real world with an engineering degree in the dot-com crash of 2000. I worked in a nuclear physics lab, wrote C++ code, and then I took off to travel the world for two years, across Asia and Latin America. When I came to Bali, I stopped traveling. Bali was my new home. I met the perfect girl, she was Balinese and very pretty. I took her to dinner and missed my flight. I ended up staying on the island.

Jing and I have been married since 2007 and we have a young daughter Eka. Just ask and we'll be happy to take you to see hidden beaches, underground parties and off-the-beaten path things to see/do in Bali. We hope you'll share a few interesting tid-bits about yourselves as well.
Our favorite thing about hosting is getting the feeling of traveling without leaving Bali. Getting to experience a guest's culture and background is something we enjoy a lot. We make a point to meet each guest and get to know them a bit. Each guest is different and unique, we try 'feel' what you're in the mood for and go from there.
