I stayed at the EPL house (the house where the movie was shot) in the middle of the paddy fields for 5 nights and I loved it. After searching for a place to stay for 2 weeks, i ended up at this beautiful property. Location is 10 min bike ride from central of Ubud, which is fine (if you're ok if you ride a motorbike). It's very safe for single women travelling alone, not at any point did I feel unsafe.
The house itself is beautifully located, and if you want peace and quiet I can fully recommend this place. Another positive is that the owner is very much engaged. He is a very smart guy that wants to make you feel at home straight away. He even took me as his guest to a royal wedding after asking to attend a ceremony. He also personally dropped me off at the airport early in the morning.
Downsides: A young guy manages the place day-to-day and he's struggling. Breakfast was on Balinese time (more than half an hour late on several occasions), and the preparation of the eggs were sub-standard. Also, the house was not very clean at the start. I had to ask them twice to clean the house before it was manageable. The house can do with an upgrade, but value is still good compared to other properties.
Because the bungalow is located in the middle of rice fields, it comes with many animals, especially at night. But a MASSIVE upside is that there are no roosters or dogs waking you up early morning, something which is a luxury in Ubud.
All in all, an amazing Balinese experience. I will definitely come back to this place again, very sad I didn't stay there from the start.
