“Good facilities, great breakfast and lovely family”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

We stayed at Praety for 5 days during our budget trip to Ubud, and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the homestay. At first finding the place took a while, as it is tucked away at the end of a very narrow alleyway off the main street. The house itself is typically Balinese and we stayed in three rooms - one for two people with two separate beds, another for two people with one bed and the one upstairs with one bed, which was actually the nicest because of the breeze at night.

Every morning you have options for breakfast including a delicious banana crepe, vegetable omelet and banana honey toasties that all come with a basket of fruit salad. I personally had a nasty experience with the fruit salad when I found ants on my papaya one morning, but all the other days were fine.

Another slight issue was the misleading 'hot shower'. It's rather intermittent and you'll often find yourself being sprayed by ice cold water even with the hot tap turned on full. One of the bathtubs was also cracked and seemed to clog quite easily. It's no luxury bathroom but useable, at least for 5 days.

The best part about this homestay is definitely the family, who are so welcoming in every possible way. There was a religious festival at the time of our visit, and so the family made us offerings to take to the temple down the road. The grandfather of the family was always informing us of all these different events, such as Balinese dance performances, and it was a wonderful way to experience true Balinese culture, away from the beaches and bars.

This place is a jewel. This homestay has only four rooms, but the love of detail of a typical Balinese house. The rooms on the second floor almost always have the benefit of a light breeze. The view over the quarter and upon a nice tree line is great. The prices are reasonable and there is a long stay discount.
The reason why I want to recommend this place is the family running it. You are welcomed into their midst and are very well taken care of. The breakfast is very good, you can choose between banana pan cake (the best), omelet, scrambled or boiled eggs and jaffle. It comes with a banana juice or coffee or tea and regardless of what you choose you get a big fruit salad on top.
Patrick (the father of the family) is a very helpful man. He can take you on day trips at the usual prices in his own car, which is quite a treat and he will try to help you as best he can in every respect.
To make it short we enjoyed our stay very much, so much that we stayed three weeks.
