My parents (in from overseas), my husband & my two sons (7 & 9) recently stayed in Villa 3 (a three bedroom). We all loved it! I planned the trip for all of the others (and was the only one who had previously visited Bali), so I was a bit stressed about finding the "right" place. Turned out great -- while it was our first time at Villa Kubu . . . I hope it won't be our last! First, it's a peaceful setting with a great mix of outdoors & indoors. (Aircons in the bedroom were nice, but the breeze that flowed through the open areas was wonderful, too.) My boys particularly enjoyed the private pool as they could hop in & out with easy access to bathrooms & snacks in between. The staff was top notch -- smiles and sincerity abounded. They were excellent service providers with a huge dose of warmth & patience. Additionally, we had not planned on eating in the villa quite so much, but the food was great, and we couldn't beat the convenience, so we opted for more meals in than we ever would have expected. As for location, for full disclosure, it's a good stretch (when walking) away from the beach, but they offer a shuttle service to certain locations & will arrange for transporation if you'd like. We walked most everywhere as we enjoyed it, but the roads leading to the main shopping/eating areas were a bit narrow and could get quite busy despite the fact that they were side streets. Just watch the little ones on the walk or take the transport (but we were fine, even with my two boys). If you take a vehicle, it's an incredibly short jaunt to the shopping and restaurants (given that it was only around a 12 minute walk for us from the door of our villa to a main shoping stretch). On another note, we also booked a side trip through the Villa (a day in Ubud) and I had a nice massage -- all great. One feature to consider is booking a barbecue at your villa. We did so (just happened to fall on Father's Day), and it was *wonderful!* Highly recommend this as they grill right in your villa, you'll have plenty of yummy food to eat, and the service was, again, impeccable. All in all, we were looking for a relaxing time in a nice environment, and we got that and more at Villa Kubu. I'd definitely be interested in a repeat visit!
