We are an Australian family living in Ubud.
Beautiful home in the rice fields. Accommodations are first rate with every thing one could ask for - bedrooms, baths, wifi, patios and pool. Great staff! Dayu is a wonderful cook and a lot of fun. Ayu, is very friendly, helpful and efficient. Nick, the driver, is knowledgeable about the area around Ubud, got us to the best spots to see and eat and most important, made the visit fun with a great sense of humor. The location is quiet, with the exception of the morning crowing of the roosters and the quacking of the ducks, but it is a much more pleasant way to wake up than the sounds of motor bikes. If you are willing to walk, you can viit the villages or even Ubud, but Nick I available at a very reasonable cost. Fabulous time for us for 3 days - then on to Amed for a week.
This villa is simply fantastic. Owners actually live in there when not renting it out, so it's not "built for tourists only" property (as most of Bali villas on AirBnB are). We were lucky to stay there for 10 days, and that was a delight.
Home stuff is friendly, delicate and almost invisible, but they can help you with anything — transport, information, communication with locals — and their English is really good.
Villa has it's own maid girl, gardener and even night watch. And a little pet frog mister Bintang in a master bathroom :) But don't worry, he is shy and lives in a flower pot — not wandering around at nights.
You will actually need to hire motorbikes or a car, villa is located in a secluded area in 5-7 minutes by bike from the Ubud's main statue (and a supermarket). We are big fans of motorbikes, so that was a positive part for us too. The road is winding, so if you're not so comfortable with driving, I would recommend to hire a driver (stuff can organize it for you).
Bedrooms are huge and far away from each other, you can stay there with another couple and you won't hear or trouble anyone.
It's so much better to live in a such a private and "liveable" villa than in a hotel! Everything is well thought of, and Jen (the owner) is really communicable and helpful.
And of course you will love Ubud :)
Jen and her family have been extremely good guests , good communication and full respect of our properties. We will be pleased to welcome them back anytime they are in Kuala Lumpur.
