We stayed here in June this year for a split week with our 3 yo, (some time was spent in Ubud).
I have hesitated about reviewing this place..... why ??? For selfish reasons of course!!
With 15 rooms surrounded by lush gardens and, around a lovely pool of ample size for the size of the "complex", each with it's own little terrace outside. Rooms are basic ranging from room with fan and cold water, or with hot water, rooms with AC and hot water, with or without TV..... I think the most expensive room was $25!
The location was perfect right in the heart of it all, but off the street, so away from the traffic with many places to eat, drink, and shop
Breakfast can be bought with a voucher for a very small fee approx $3 at Street Cafe, (on the main street, at the top of the lane), or you can choose from an abundance of other places to breakfast. Our faves are Smorgas, further up towards Hardy's, and Maya's Coffee and Juice Bar in Jl Pantai Sindu, (awesome everything with free wifi laptops included).
The staff at Little Pond are very friendly and are always working hard..... they were happy to help out with questions and there was a fridge with cold drinks, and a warung a few steps away.
Don't get me wrong, this is not luxury Bali..... but it is true Bali, home stay style. It is clean, the rooms don't smell, they are actively aired ,sheets and towels maybe grey but they are clean.
We have been to Bali many times and we have found that home stays are the way to go if you like a cheaper, more budget style holiday and allow you to experience something a little more "cultural"...
I wouldn't hesitate to return, and as the last reviewer says, it is often booked out as it is very popular with families backpackers, couples & singles alike. Would be a great place to stay with friends too and was female traveler friendly. Two older women were staying there separately and felt quite safe.
Would happily recommend......
