“Private & Peaceful Villa with Great View”
Reviewed 15 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

people found this review helpful

Great location and beautiful view. Nice pool and bale area that did receive sun during our stay. Well equipped kitchen. Nice natural cool breeze through the villa. Lots of comfy seating and ceiling fans. Large verandahs off the living area and main upstairs bedroom with full length glass doors that fully open, bringing the outdoors in with spectacular views over the ridge. The villa is very private and peaceful. Ketut is the best house cleaner, extremely thorough and a delightful lady.

Villa was advertised as 2 air conditioned bedrooms, the separate contained bedroom is not air conditioned and the master bedroom's air conditioner is mounted in the walk-in robe / closet located behind the bed, great for aesthetics, but not practical, the main house and outside bedroom have beautiful open carved feature all around full length windows. The payment method needs to be addressed, Booking.com stated Rupiah to be paid at check-in, no problem. A couple of weeks before arriving I was emailed an invoice requesting part payment via Paypal or Bank Deposit, I opted to pay the full amount as per Booking.com, via Paypal. Due to conversions AUD --> USD--> Rp and being charged the Paypal fee on top, it was requested we pay an extra $150AUD (1.44M rp) during our 7 night stay. I would have preferred to pay as stated on website "Rupiah at check-in" this would have prevented being charged a lot extra than the initial quoted price, as per booking.com.

A couple of minor details; the safety deposit box was not accessible as a previous guest left it locked and closed, villa manager did not have access key to open. Many light bulbs were broken and a few were replaced on request. The bale lights by the swimming pool were all broken and the outside bedroom was like a strobe light throughout my entire stay (if I was able to reach I would have changed it myself) I was unable to use the bedroom light altogether, the dodgy globe finally blew on my last day. A lamp in there would be a good idea and a verandah light for this separate contained room would be great, Coming home late at night after the gardens timer lights were off was very dark, Had the Bale's light globes been replaced it wouldn't have been a problem. Attention to these small details can make a big difference. The villa manager did arrange for the timer of the garden lights be extended for us as 10.30pm was just too early.

The overpowering perfume scent of the fresh laundered sheets / linen was particularly bad, almost unbearable to sleep in, this is a common problem I've encountered all over Bali.

Overall a pleasant, comfortable stay, but unlikely to return. There are so many accommodation choices in Ubud. Besides being overcharged, the low season price with 38% discount at time of booking was still a little high for the lack of A/C (although advertised as having) and no breakfast provisions.

“Well-located, beautiful villa, but with a few issues”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Pros:
1. Great location, if you have a scooter (villa can arrange it for you), otherwise it's quite a long walk into Ubud and there are no taxis in this area.
2. Beautiful view over rice fields/ river gorge
3. 2 bedrooms are in separate buildings; this worked fine for us but if you had small children, it might be an issue (my 4 year old son slept with me in the main house)
4. Owner was very prompt in getting back to me by email
5. House manager was happy to arrange drivers/scooters etc.
6. Nice decor and furnishings
7. Nice breeze that blows from the gorge in front of the house
Cons:
1. Dangerous staircase in the main house, especially if you have little kids or are physically compromised in any way
2. No air conditioning so bedrooms are warm at night ( I purchased a small bedside fan)
3. Pool is extremely cold and receives very little to no sun (it is very clean and while small, met our needs)
4. Mosquito nets arounds the beds are a must; the design of the house (open wood panels over every wall that cannot be closed) does not allow any rooms to be closed; there are ALOT of mosquitos so insect spray is a must as well
5. No stove, no toaster oven, only a 4 burner cooktop and microwave. I would recommend the owner purchase a toaster oven.
6. Wi-fi really only works if you are on the top floor of the house
7. There are alot of ants/bugs which in general is to be expected in Ubud, however the amount of ants in the bathroom seemed to be excessive
8. Minimal staff presence which could be a pro or a con, depending on your needs
9. the rental price per night, even during high season, seemed a little high but I booked at the last minute and there was very little available in the Ubud area.

Overall, I would recommend this villa though I doubt I would stay here again when I return to Bali, mainly because of the lack of AC in the bedrooms.
