We stayed at Kubu Kauh for a total of 6 nights, and never regretted our decision. Our room on the second storey came with a breezy balcony, very pleasant for just relaxing and chatting. Each morning, we had a simple breakfast of toast and jams, plus a hot water thermos to make our own drinks (teabags, coffee and sugar were provided).
The room was clean and comfortable, and yes, the beds are firm, so you get a good night's rest. Popular cable channels like AXN, Fox, Discovery Channel and Nat Geo were available, as were air-conditioning and hot water shower (although the water pressure on our level was slightly weak). The beach is only a few minutes' walk away, but Kubu Kauh itself is down a quiet street nearby. Free wireless (you don't have to order anything) is available at the Koko Cafe which is also owned by the family, a 1 minute walk down the street
The family lives on the premises, so you'll get a glimpse into the day-to-day lives of the Balinese. Ketet and his family are friendly and helpful, and will give you advice on anything you need. They can arrange bike rentals, tours, surfing trips, and if you're around during traditional ceremonies, you might get a taste of their babi guling (suckling pig).
All-in, a really enjoyable stay, and excellent value for money at rp250.000 nett for a double room. You get an airport transfer thrown in if you stay for a week or more.
