I missed writing a review earlier on this little gem as have just returned from quite a few weeks of travel. This lovely homestay was just perfect. The owner - Putu - was delightful. Very helpful, kind and full of information. She bought us a treat of the local delicacy - suckling pig - on our last day there to... More

Putu and her wonderful family made me feel like I was at home. I will always have a place to call home in Ubud. Where the room is clean and secure and the breakfast is warm and delicious. Putu was even gracious enough to surprise me with a traditional suckling pig dish for lunch on my last day. It was... More

My first visit to Bali led me to Putu's beautiful Jawi House and Painter, in Ubud. I was here for nine days and cannot describe how amazing it has been. I stayed in the Rooftop room, which is very clean and decorated to a high standard. Putu has gone to great lengths to ensure the room is comfortable for her... More

This was my little slice of paradise in Ubud... Putu is so incredibly sweet and kind- the room was lovely and clean- breakfast was awesome (the eggs were my favorite)... The place is down a little alley so it's very peaceful but a quick, easy walk to the main road. There is a safe in the room- both air con... More

Jawi House certainly lived up to its high rating on TripAdvisor. My wife and I, together with our 2 young children stayed there 4 nights. What can I say that has not been said before? I loved it's central location. I loved Putu's genuine hospitality and thoughtfulness. The room was clean and well maintained. I loved the beautiful balcony where... More

We stayed at the Jawi House for four days while visiting Ubud. They have two rooms, but the smaller one wasn't available for the dates that we needed so we took the larger one at a discount after agreeing to use only the ceiling fan. The room is excellent! It was immaculate, spacious, and well-appointed -- mini-fridge, safe box, AC,... More

I'm very glad that I have stayed at Jawi House and echo all the positive comments that have been expressed by other travellers. Both Putu and Jawi are very hospitable and generous and are always around to help answer my questions or to give me a ride. The house is very central and the market/palace/monkey forest are all within walking... More
