This place is great. It is clean and new, and the staff could not be nicer or more accommodating. We really enjoyed it and would recommend it to friends. I would note, though, that it is a decent walk away from the center of Ubud, though, and that walk can be tense. The most direct way to town is on a narrow path that takes you around the edge of the monkey forest. Though it is a walking path, it is frequently used by motor bikes. During the day it isn't much of a problem, but at night it is pitch black. You can never tell if the motorbikes see you until they are right on top of you. Also, Mawa House is not as well known as some of the other guest houses with cabs and touring companies, so sometimes arranging to be picked up was difficult.
With all of that said, we had a great time there. My girlfriend and I stayed here in late May, a little after high season. The rooms were great. Everything looked new and was kept very clean. The courtyard pool was as charming to look at as it was refreshing in the afternoon. The staff was incredibly friendly. They gave us great advice and booked us for a cooking class that we really enjoyed. Breakfast was included, and it was delicious. We sampled the nasi goreng and mie goreng, and they were fabulous as well. Our courtyard porch was charming.
Mawa hous is on the quiet side. There isn't a lot to do in the premises after dark. That suited us fine, but if you are looking for a rowdier holiday, I might look at a place closer in to Ubud.
