At the same time the main central street of Ubud is 3 km away. Only in a 10 minutes there are the most delicious restaurants and cafes with different cusine, hookahs lounge, traditional souvenir shops, stores with clothing from local designers and many yoga studio ofcourse.

  • Alex is a kind host. He went out of his way to help us and ensure our arrival went smoothly and our stay was comfortable. His house really is charming, quiet and relaxing. We enjoyed our stay here.

  • My stay at Alex's house in Ubud was perfect. The house is very comfortable and private and had everything I needed. It was far enough out of town to feel restful and Alex was really helpful with organizing a motor bike rental and taxis to and from the airport. He was quick to respond to any issues or questions - and happy to recommend good restaurants! The house sits in a rice field so you will go to sleep to the sound of birds and crickets and see beautiful Bali sunsets. It was also a delight to get to know some of the people who work in the fields and gardens. I would definitely stay here again.

  • We loved staying at Alex's house. It was off the road so there were no cars. We had to ride bikes or walk to get there from the main road. It was peaceful and beautiful staying in the rice fields and very private. The house had everything we needed and we were very comfortable. I slept the best there that I have slept anywhere in a very long time! The only noise were many ducks quacking in the morning! So if you are handicapped and can't walk or ride a bike or have an aversion to ducks quacking maybe you wouldn't like it. We loved it! What is important to us is energy and this place had wonderful energy!!
    The best thing about staying here was that Alex connected us with a man name Wayan Suta who picked us up at our hotel in Seminyak and was our driver for the time that we stayed. He also became our dear friend and through his guidance we went to amazing locations and had some extraordinary experiences. He is a wonderful man and we feel very honored to have met him and grateful for the his service.

  • La maison est située dans une rizière. C'est MAGNIFIQUE ! Loin du trafic, du bruit et des motos, seulement les gazouillis de la nature tout autour. N'hésitez pas à utiliser les services du chauffeur d'Alex, car il peut être difficile de trouver la maison par ses propres moyens. La demeure est exceptionnellement propre, confortable et comprend tout ce qu'il faut : réfrigérateur, ustensiles, cuisinière, etc. Quel plaisir de cuisiner avec les produits locaux ! Un mini-market est à proximité. Le centre d'Ubud est à environ 8 minutes en scooter. C'est très agréable de s'y promener avec les nombreuses boutiques et cafés. Alex est un hôte hors pairs ! Nous sommes tombés en amour avec cette maison. Notre seul regret, ne pas y être restés plus longtemps !!!!!!!

  • Alex place is just a lovely Island in the middle of rice fields with a cosy atmosphere given by the beautiful surrounding. We lived there for 6 days and enjoyed Ubud and the Bali way of life. The house was clean and with a good infrastructure. Alex was very helpful in organizing a driver and a motorbike. He is a good host and we just recommend him and his place. Thanks for a wonderful time.

  • My girlfriend and I spent Christmas at Alex's place. Staying at Alex' place really made our christmas magical. The place is the middle of nature, surrounded by a race field and birds. We've seen the most amazing sunrises and sunsets here.

    Alex is an awesome host! He organised airport pick up, welcomed us to his place to make sure we have a great stay and introduced us to the must do things around Ubud.

    He is also introduced us to the best massage therapist we ever met.

    We didn't rent scooters, as Alex' provides two bicycles which are great to ride around and commute to Ubud.

    We for sure will come back to Ubud and stay at Alex's place.

  • Our holidays at Alex's house were great! Everything that we are expected: great location - in the middle of the rice field, away from the road.

We are recommend to stay here to everybody!

  • OMG! This was an outstanding experience. Everything from the home to the interaction with the host, Alex, was perfect.
    Communication with Alex was quick, smooth, and easy.
    Upon arrival, Alex showed me the space (and even shared a mango breakfast!) and gave me inside scoop on places to go in Ubud. What really put Alex above the rest was how he took me into town on his motorbike to grocery shop. He helped me pick the foods I would need and got me accustomed to some cultural aspects of Ubud.
    The home was large and beautiful. I felt like I was a Queen of my own little home in the rice fields. Yoga mats are in the home which left me doing a flow as the sun rose each morning. The bikes provided were great for riding through the fields and watching the workers harvest rice in the fields. At night it was easy to fall asleep to the wildlife noises and not any hustle and bustle that you would find if staying in town.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
    Oh, and the bathroom is HUGE. I had a few bubble baths during my stay. :)

  • My stay at Alex Santi's guest house was amazing and perfect! Just what I wanted...a beautiful private house in the middle of the rice field, away from traffic and pollution. I visit Bali each year and this by far is the best place I've stayed at. Away from the busy traffic, touristic area yet close enough when you want to get there anytime. Everyday I walked through the rice field and enjoyed the scenery and lived amongst the local villagers. The house was beautiful with great lighting and fresh air with lots of windows. Kitchen was great so I didn't have to eat out all the time and loved that I could make fresh juice each day with the blender! Plus there were yoga mats there, so I did yoga out on the porch all the time and a bike to excersize and get around. Alex was always helpful when I had questions and a phone call or email away. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone visiting Bali!

  • Great experience. Alex is a very good host, and the house is clean, confortable, with new, nice furniture. But above all, you are in the middle of one of the best rice field area of Ubud. Like being on an observatory right in the middle of the balinese country life, just at the center of it.
