Beautiful homestay. The moment you walk through the gate you are greeted by Ganesha - remover of all obstacles. Upon turning the corner, you find the owner Nyoman - who removes any other obstacles you may find during your stay! Nyoman is the bearer of all knowledge about Ubud. Having lived in Australia for many years, his English is flawless - almost as good as his tips on where to eat! His wife Rai is gracious and friendly.
This is a traditional homestay - if you want "western hotel style" privacy and quiet, this is not the place for you. Although not noisy by any stretch, you are still aware of most noises throughout the gardens - which I mostly liked. There are only fans in the rooms. This was sufficient for us, but in the hotter months I think it could be a bit of a struggle.
It would be difficult to find somewhere as spotlessly clean as the rooms here and there is a lovely peaceful energy about the place. The rooms are not large, but are comfortable, and great value for money at the price.
If you stay here, I highly recommend hiring their driver Wayan. He is very knowledgable and possibly may take you to some genuine "local" spots.
The location is spot on - in the centre of town without the noise and hustle and bustle. Some of the best places to eat and shop are on Jalan Gautama.
