Highly recommend Made and Matahari Villas! Made made our trip very comfortable, helping us to arrange for drivers, breakfast in the morning, and massages in the villa. The villas themselves are beautiful. They are close enough to reach central Ubud on a short car ride but enough removed to provide some peace and quiet. Our villa was open air and very comfortable with the fans cooling. The rice paddies are beautiful. Would love to come back for a longer stay.
Made's villa was the perfect addition to our stay in Ubud. It was beautifully located just outside the craziness of the main part of town and perfectly picturesque. Made and his staff greeted us as we arrived and made sure all of our needs were addressed. He helped to arrange an incredible tour guide for the next day and even provided us with a local phone to contact him with any needs. I couldn't imagine a more lovely or hospitable place to stay. I would definitely stay here again.
Made welcome us on the first day and visited us everyday to check that everything was fine and we were all right. The house was exactly what was described on AirBnB: spacious, typical and well decorated. The pool was also really beautiful, in front of the rice fields. Everyday, Made's team came to prepare a delicious breakfast just for us! We were welcome as if we were guests of honour ;-) Ubud was about 10 min away by car. It was really easy to reach because Made has a driver really friendly working for him. We could arrange several trips with him to go to Ubud but also for whole days. We really loved our stay at the Absolute Dream because Made and his team were so friendly and helpful with us, but also we really appreciated the typical house located in a quiet environment, not far away from Ubud at the same time. I highly recommend to AirBnb 's members going to Ubud to have a stay at Made's place!
We extended our stay at Made's villa! Please see my previous review!
Our host, Made, truly made spectacular an already amazing lodging experience. Everything in the listing was provided as specified. Our breakfast was delicious and Made was sure to accomodate our various departure times each morning. Every day we returned from our trips to find fresh linens and tidied living spaces. Transportation was a breeze thanks to Made's allowing us to use a loaner phone, and facilitating multiple communications with drivers and agencies. His presence was consistent and unobtrusive - perfect!
The view and grounds were enchanting. Situated on rice paddies with locals walking to/from work, roosters crowing, children flying kites - we really felt we were staying in the heart of Bali. The pool was beautiful to look at and swim in - a wonderful break from the mid-day sun and humidity. It's funny, but we even enjoyed the gecko's that stayed with us, appreciating both their antics and their function in swallowing sharp nosed pests!
Our group was four people and two bedrooms suited us well. The bathrooms are seperate but one can easily overhear the "activities" next door - fyi. There is a safe for valuables, which we found usefull.
All in all, we are looking forward to another trip to Bali (that's another story!) and Made's villa is certainly at the top of the list of places to stay near Ubud - well done my friend!!
We had a great two days unwinding at the villa overlooking the rice paddies. We particularly enjoyed opening up the folding doors to let the sun in and taking dips in the pool to cool off. Made and the team made us feel very welcome, providing a phone to call if we needed and breakfast at our leisure in the mornings. Thanks again
Highly recommended. Made and his team made us feel very welcome and we would stay there again for sure. It's a bit difficult to find which is the only negative we can think of, and aside from that, nothing but positives. Beautiful.
Amazing place. Amazing views. Peaceful. Walked in with the biggest WOW. The host and staff were adorable and very helpful (they helped sort out rides, scooters and shared tips on the local scene)
The infinity pool on the rice field was an unforgettable experience.
Thank you so much for having us.
We will be back
Zowel het ophalen als het verblijf is prima verlopen. prima uitvalslocatie voor Ubud en omgeving. Rustige ligging aan rijstveld levert vooral 's ochtends tijdens ontbijt een heel fijn uitzicht. Gastvrijheid Made en staff zijn ok.
Such a great experience. Made had a driver pick us up and deliver us to the villa. The villa was beautiful. Indoor outdoor. There was no air conditioning but when we went it certainly wasn't needed (March). He made your stay so comfortable, with breakfast made in the villa every morning, fresh fruit in the fridge. The shared pool was so refreshing and the views overlooking the rice fields captured exactly the essence we were seeking out in our Ubud vacation. Highly Recommended!!!
I was won over by Matahari Villas the moment I stepped into the beautiful grounds and simply stunning views over the rice fields and beyond to the volcanos as a backdrop!
We stayed much longer than originally intended as we didn't want to leave!
The staff are extremely helpful and Made is an absolute gem! Nothing is too much trouble.
The villas are very beautiful and ours was literally a step away from the rice paddies themselves. So wonderful to wake to the incredible sunrises over these views and have our glass of wine at sunset with similarly awe inspiring skies.
We would thoroughly recommend Matahari Villas for those wishing for peace and tranquility yet close enough to all that the centre of Ubud has to offer. Photographs do not do this place justice!
