I paid around $210 for three nights in a two bedroom villa (Green House). To me this was really very cheap for a private villa and so I took into stride certain little things that may put people off. If you approach this place with the fact that it's not very expensive and provides a more authentic experience of staying in Bali then this is a great place. If you come here expecting luxury for cheap then you will be very disappointed.... also you have to get used to 'Indonesian ways'!
There was a great little cooling off pool (CLEAN), plus shaded area over two sun lounges and a covered mini area where breakfast is served. You get a hot urn of water every morning for the whole day. There's a little fountain and a double story self contained villa with two single beds below and one double bed upstairs and a open bathroom. There was hot water in the showers, a prep area with a fridge and cutlery/crockery (no stove or oven etc), dvd and tv, fan upstairs and air/con downstairs. I wouldn't recommend anyone sleeping upstairs who can't handle rustic stairs in the dark. There was also a mini lounge upstairs so there were lots of areas to hang out in if there was a family/group staying here.
There's a mini mart and petrol station opposite with plenty of ATMs. Walking towards central Bali is a little bit far but anyone with some sort of fitness and penchant for walking will manage it fine. Plenty of good places to eat on the way in. Jaens spa also on the way into town but was always booked out. Yoga Barn also kind of on the way in.
There's a collection of magazines, brochures and DVDs left from other guests so that's handy! There's also a map. The little PDF guide sent to you when you make a booking was SO handy and I really liked that personal touch. It recommends things to do, where to eat, explains a bit more the villas etc... they also offer a pickup from the airport for a good price so don't be afraid to get them to pick you up which helps you clear the annoying porters and touts at DPS.
Now the little things to watch out for...
1. NOISE. There are dogs and roosters surrounding the area. This is typical for Bali so bring earplugs for when the cockcrow chorus starts in the early morning. Whoever said roosters only crow in the morning doesn't have a clue about the roosters in Bali...
2. The beds are REALLY hard. This is also normal for Asian countries. Didn't get the best sleep...
3. Although there are mossie plugs, coils and nets I still got quite badly bitten by mossies. Again this is fairly normal for Bali. Plus bugs really like me!
4. Breakfast is very small and simple. There's no other drinks than the tea/coffee you get as standard for the day. You get fruit but they ignore you when you request no coconut and no syrup. The option you choose will probably be quite small... buy your own extras from the mini mart and store in the fridge there. You get a big urn of water to refill up any bottles and also some spare ones in the fridge.
5. Ketut is nice and will try to help you but sometimes you feel like he's trying to rip you off just a little bit. (Unfortunately not uncommon when dealing with tourists visiting a poorer country...) Not a lot but you could probably find cheaper drivers yourself for example. He tried to change the price around a bit. Also make sure you plan your own itinerary! However on the plus side he did drop us off and picked us up from the main shopping strip one night for free. Overall it did feel better to support a real family rather than a business/corporation by staying here.
Rest of the staff were quite nice although at any opportunity may try to gently sell you tickets/tours. Just say you already have them booked (unless you want to be sold things). They will also make calls for you from the front office phone if you need to and there's usually someone around the front if you need some help.
6. Small note, I think one of the bigger villas only had plants for part of the fence so people walking to other villas could see into the open areas (garden, pool, downstairs). So it wasn't entirely 100% private but manageable unless you are super paranoid. It was not possible to look into the open air shower areas.
Overall, understanding more what I got myself into, I would stay here again.
