My husband and I stayed in Breeze Villa for 3 nights Jan 5-8, 2013 and paid $85USD/night inclusive. We really liked the location away from busiest tourist area of Ubud but still lots of restaurants and shops in easy and moderate walking distance. There is no lobby or reception area just a small hut where Ketut, the attendant or the security man sits; there is room for a few cars to park. We received a very nice greeting and were escorted in great number to Breeze Villa with umbrellas & luggage help. It’s the furthest villa – a beautiful walk through a deep, well landscaped property - other villas along the way appear to be quite private. Beautiful large pool along the way signed “Not to be used” all 3 days we were there - still not sure if it was a private pool for a specific villa. Breeze Villa has private plunge pool and patio = excellent. View to rice fields and trees = excellent. Privacy = very good; a nosy Nellie walking along the exterior path of the adjoining private property could look in but would have to be purposeful. Breeze Villa is large - downstairs has king bed (2 singles that separate), very small armoire/bookcase, low table for luggage, small desk with mirror & chair, 2 end tables, good lighting but the 4 naked bulbs on ceiling really need covering. Bed has nice linen, 2 sheets and very thin cover with 3 good pillows. 5 large towels, 3 facecloths, 2 bars soap supplied. Patio has heavy wood dining table, 4 chairs & large, gorgeous couch with nice pillows - very comfortable. Private pool area has 2 loungers and umbrella. Interior walls are plastered and have wood doors, wood framed windows, few pieces of nice art and good window coverings. Air-con and floor fan work well. Bathroom is large & beautiful with one wall open to private garden and sky. Good water pressure but we had no hot water the first night - that was remedied immediately the next morning by staff as soon as reported. As this villa is so far from front area where the attendant sits we didn't want to walk back there in the monsoon rain to complain and there are no phones in the room. There is also a small kitchen with fridge and drinking water - bottled and water cooler- and ice; and a stove to boil water for tea when the carafe water gets too cool. The kitchen window is 'open' and not screened so obviously bathroom and kitchen are not air-coned or bug free - not a problem during our stay. Burners with mosquito coils were provided for outdoor patio use, we also put one in the bathroom at night. Only went upstairs (external staircase) to see the view from balcony - spectacular! Lay out is similar to downstairs except no kitchen but there was a small fridge on deck. Upstairs has high ceiling, wood finishing and is better furnished (big wood couch) with a ‘Balinese’ feel (what downstairs lacks) however it had a bit of a musty smell & the much smaller bathroom had a distinct smell which downstairs didn't have. So more charm upstairs, more comfortable practicality downstairs! Breakfast was delivered promptly as requested at 07:30. It was tasty but not a very large portion; you can request from a small menu (e.g.: 2 eggs + toast, chili omelette + toast, fried banana pancake – all come with a small fresh fruit plate). Coffee and tea, and hot water carafe are left on table for anytime use. I think it’s a nephew who runs the laundry service in a separate building out-front; they did a great job with our clothes for a very reasonable price. From Canada I booked this accommodation through booking.com then received follow up information via email from Lisa. I was asked to pay Ketut (owner), the house attendant and the breakfast attendant separately but Ketut wasn't at the property our last evening or the last morning, and the usual breakfast lady was also absent, so as per instruction from the house attendant I paid ALL the money to him and had him initial my printed email. No receipt was issued for any payments. I sincerely hope that everyone got their intended portion of payment. This was an excellent stay overall and I would heartily recommend Breeze Villa at Bali Breeze Bungalows (just know it’s quite a walk in from the front if you are elderly or walking impaired).
