Month visit was incredible
We rented this villa for one month in October 2013. This house made our Bali vacation. The house is beautiful and it is worth staying there for as long as you can! It was VERY hot while we were in Bali and every day we would return home from our daily travels, jump in the pool and not want to leave 'our' house again!
There is a wonderful woman who cares for the house and for you while you are there. Wayan is absolutely fabulous! The house is very close to Lala Lili's where you can get the best Balinese massage in the world! Once we discovered it, we went there every other day until we left. There are warungs along the pathway (that leads to this house and beyond) that offers excellent food choices. The view of the rice field from the pool and all of the floor to ceiling windows was fabulous. We felt so at home. We shopped almost everyday at the Bintang market which IS 5 minutes away along the same path. It is a large supermarket where you really can find almost anything you might want. The only thing: there is a steep, uneven set of steps at the end of the path leading to Bintang market and the road into town..not easy to climb if you have any physical constraints. Also, the road into Ubud is right there once you climb down the steps...the road is FULL of cars and scooters and the sidewalks are torn up for construction and have been this way for 2 years! Makes it VERY difficult and NOT at all relaxing to walk into town. We loved this area BUT the traffic and the walking situation was not what we had anticipated.
For touring Bali - We met a driver named Made who speaks very good English and knows SO much about the sites of Bali. He took us around the island to all the best places..we spent 4 days with him.
We also went to Sanur beach for a few days which we enjoyed very much.
This house though really made us feel totally at home in Bali!! We would love to return!
