We visited Bali during a trip with my parents, myself and my sister (adult children). We stayed in Rumah Kampung and Rumah Tinggi. My parents stayed in Rumah Kampung so that my mother wouldn't have to walk too many stairs, while my sister and I stayed in Rumah Tinggi. Rumah was a dream!! The photos on the website are accurate. And the lushness of the grounds makes you feel very much in Bali.
We enjoyed the fact that the Desa (Rumah David, as many know it in Ubud) was a little outside of the center. It's really only an under-10 minute taxi drive or 20 minute walk to the center, with shops and restaurants and sights (like the Monkey Sanctuary and the ARMA dance center) along the way. The center is a little overwhelming in terms of foot and other traffic, so it's nice to be away from it but also conveniently close. We loved coming back to the peace and quiet.
The staff were absolutely amazing. They helped us with all of our arrangements, from taxi drivers to renting a moped and arranging travel to another part of the island. And we really enjoyed them as people, so friendly. We owe them some pictures! I highly recommend this place.
