My husband and I stayed in the Joglo at this property. It is an ornate hut on stilts with semi-outdoor bathroom and a balcony to relax overlooking rice paddies and a secluded fruit and veg garden. The Joglo also had lockable draws, fresh boiled water daily and a small fridge. A delicious breakfast is served in a bale in the... More

If you want to be away from hustle and bustle and try and feel like you are not a tourist this is the perfect place. Location - In the middle of beautiful rice fields, where you can see fireflys at night. It is less than 30 min walk to the Main Street of Ubud. Accommodation - We stayed in the... More

My first time in Bali, and part of a 3 month trip all over Asia. Anna, Kadek and Yandira became as close as family. This 10 days was the heart and soul of my 3 months away. I feel so blessed to have met and spent such a wonderful time with each of them. The wonderful food that Kadek made... More

Unless you have been to Bali before I don't think you can appreciate how special a little place like Bali Firefly is. Yes its a bit of a walk from the car to the house- about 5 min if you are slow like me, but Kadek will carry your bags. Yes Ubud markets and shopping/eating district is a bit of... More

We thoroughly enjoyed a fortnight's holiday at Ann Donnan's guesthouse, pondok Ibu Anna, just outside Ubud. We stayed in the traditionally-built Villa, one of three lodgings on the site, with all it's amenities and delicious breakfasts, surrounded by a beautifully garden, isolated pavilion and fish pond. The staff, Kadek and Iluh, were competent and so polite and charming to talk... More

If you ever get a chance to go to Bali stay with Ibu Anna at her Pondok and Kunang-Kunang Guesthouse in Penestenan. It was wonderful. The location was great. Located deep in the ricefields of a very small village near Ubud. The people though, made the adventure. Ibu Anna, Yandira, Kadek and Iluh made our stay most relaxing, exciting, and... More

We have just returned from a two week stay at Kunang Kunang Guesthouse, there were three of us, my wife Alice, our friend Kay and myself. It was the most relaxing, exciting and enjoyable experience all rolled into one holiday. Ann and her staff, Kadek, Made and others were superb in offering attentive personal but not intrusive service, and Yandira... More

There have been many changes in Ubud since Eat, Pray, Love advertised its unique charms to the world, and the neighborhood around Ibu Anna's in Penestanan Kaja has been rapidly growing around it. Anna has been there for 10 years and, though her place is well maintained, and has a lovely mature garden, it is overpriced compared to the spacious... More
