SERGE WE ARE SO HAPPY YOU LOVED LOOKING GLASS HOUSE! We agree the house has the perfect Ubud location and is great for a couple or small family, or may we suggest an excellent retreat for a holiday away with a few friends. Nice to hear you were happy with the WIFI and were impressed by the large bathroom (that tub really is almost big enough to swim in). We are proud of our staff and glad they looked after you so well and made you feel so secure. Budhi mentioned you look forward to coming back again and we most certainly will welcome you. Thank you for you recommendation...

Hi Jingting, thank you for your recommendation and lovely review. We are happy you observing how smart and clean our property is. Yes the house is ideal for couples or particularly for a girls week away. It really is a whimsical fairy tale cottage set at the edge of the monkey forest and many say its sweet proportions and Gaudy style steps add to its charm. There is easy access to the large downstairs suite, but we do obviously try to discourage toddlers or the elderly staying up the ladder stair on the mezzanine level. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. come back any time.

Thank you so much Nagata for your lovely review, glad you loved the monkeys, as you know our staff will only allow the monkeys onto our grounds if the guests are comfortable with them. The new 9 meter pool will be in use very soon and in the meantime our guests are being offered the use of the lovely Kerti Yasa swimming pool, just a short walk from our property. The stunning new Bohemia organic restaurant right on our doorstep will opening in the next 4 weeks, so we welcome you back again soon to come and enjoy all the new facilities.

Thank you so much for your lovely review Amanda we are so glad you loved Looking Glass House.. You will be pleased to note we have resolved our wifi issues which were due to cabling interference from the renovation next door, so all good now.. Once the renovations have finished a fantastic new 9 meter pool will be available for our guests, but in the mean time as you mentioned, our guests have special access to a beautiful and even larger pool which is comfortably in walking distance from the property and if you do not feel like a stroll our staff are always to take the 2 minute drive and drop you on the back of a motor bike.. Thanks again Amanda, we welcome you back any time..

Thank you Dan, we are so thrilled you loved our Looking Glass House, it is a special place indeed and we welcome you back any time. Just a note to other potential guests that if they are not at peace with the occasional monkey coming onto the grounds we have full time staff that generally are instructed to keep them out. In Dan's case him and his children were enjoying their presence so they let the odd one through. At Looking Glass House your wish is always our command....

Sonja thank you so much for your lovely review and your appreciation of the fact that Looking Glass House is a very special place to stay. The house is does indeed have a charming configuration and we agree the mezzanine ladder stairs make the upper level best suited to children over 4, although the large downstairs suite is very accessible for all ages. We welcome you back any time and wanted to let you know that we have now installed a continuous hot water system so there should be plenty of hot water on demand even for that huge luxurious bathtub. Hope to see you again soon.
