After Harta had picked us up from the airport and we had to asked to stop somewhere to pick up a few items for snack food and other stuff. Harta took us to Bintang and told us they would be the cheapest around. Once we got the villa it was as nice as it looked in the pictures.There was everything we needed for our stay. We also asked Harta if could be our guide while been here and he said no problem and asked what we wanted to do. We had mentioned about the temples and some other places to check out. Harta did get us to everywhere we wanted to go and he took us to places for lunches. Going into town was about a 10 minute walk, but there is restaurants close by and the food is good and cheap. If you are planning to go Ubud and need a place to stay and guide than talk to Harta. Thank you Harta for the great time
Harta's cozy villa gives you an experience of what it would be like to live and reside in Ubud, Bali. We got to experience being in a rainforest type of area with lots of trees and other forms of nature. I didn't mind the long rains because it seemed fitting with the set-up of the villa/area. When it comes to the villa itself, it is very well-kept and organized. Harta makes sure he accommodates his villa and his guests well. He even gives personal tours and would be happy to drive you around Ubud at a pretty good price! Thank you so much for the lovely experience and I'll definitely look to come back and stay at your place again soon!
We had a wonderful experience during our last visit to Bali, in many respects because of our rent. Made Jaya Harta met us at the airport and provided us with the hour-and-a-half transfer with no extra charge (also back to the airport for a very cheap price) in a big comfortable car with AC, what is quite important in Bali. Mr Harta is a very open-minded person with a lot of life experience, good English and a great knowledge of the local culture and traditions. Upon our request, he showed us some places which we would never find ourselves and gave a lot of interesting information. He is a perfect host: greatly respecting the tenants' privacy, he is always around if they need something. The house was lovely, water in the swimming pool was clean and all the atmosphere was so relaxing and joinable that I couldn't believe that I had to leave :( It is situated in a pretty area of Penestan, one of the nicest places in Ubud area. It is a perfect place for people interested in culture, art, yoga, meditation, healthy food or simply enjoy the walks by the paths in the rice fields. The centre of Ubud is in 15-20 minutes walk, but the road there is better for transport than for walking. We really loved our experience and hope will be able to come there again!
Great quiet location, owner was very helpful with transportation and ideas of what to do in the area
I stayed here for two months last year and had a wonderful time! The owner, Jaya Harta and his family are wonderful people and we are now close friends. I had a few people from out of town visit me and we thoroughly enjoyed the pool, kitchen, outdoor (covered) area and wonderful Ketut with her daily family temple offerings.
