I stayed here twice during my stay, I had to come back again. This beautiful, large villa is elegantly put together, with great furnishings, bedrooms, bathrooms a huge open kitchen, dining and living area and a tv room that can double as an extra bedroom.
Maria, Wayan and Putu took wonderful care of us, almost too good! They went to the extra lengths of relocating the frogs after they'd kept me awake one night.
I would recommend this for people wanting to have a family holiday, or couples wanting time out, to swim, talk, and be away from it all. This was perfect for us because we didn't want to be in the thick of it. If you want the best restaurants at your door step, this isn't the best location but this is a wonderful place to stay... I'm loathed to tell people in case it's booked out next time we're there!!
Tips: take some duty free to make cocktails, do day trips with Wayan Ubud etc, get out and enjoy, take an early morning walk through the neighbourhood and down to the beach at sun rise and get Wayan to drop you at the local beach club for dinner. The local laundry is cheap & good, and Maria is a sweetheart and will help you with lots of arrangements. She's a great cook too.
