“What an experience living in a Bali village north of Ubud.”
Reviewed July 7, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A spacious, beautiful Balinese house. Very comfortable and everything you need. Made and his staff are so friendly, helpful and will do anything to make your stay in their village a special experience. You are treated like a member of their family and the Jasan village. We did a cycling tour with Made's cousin which was lots of fun and visit places that the usual tourist wouldn't go to. A visit to the relaxing hot springs in the crater of the volcano and then lunch overlooking the volcano, what an experience. Anything you want to see or do, Made will organise it for you. We experienced the true Bali life, thank you Made for such special memories. Made is a very caring and thoughtful host and he will make your stay in Merta House a special experince.

“Such an amazing experience”
Reviewed June 17, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My husband and I had an incredible experience staying at Merta House for four nights. It was a very rare chance to stay in a balinese village, being looked after by the kind, funny and knowledgeable Made. Made looked after us in every possible way, driving us everywhere, making sure we had everything we could need in the villa. As other reviews have said, by the end of our stay it felt much more like a friendship between Made and ourselves, and we were very sad to have to leave - we will miss being able to chat with him. We thought we knew quite a lot about Bali, but we learned so much more about the culture and way of life from Made - he really helped us experience another side of beautiful Bali. The villa is a great design and has a lovely garden and everything you need inside, including a very large comfortable bed. Jasan Village is about 30 minutes out of Ubud, and we went back and forth quite a lot, as Made was happy to take us and pick us up whenever we needed. We can't wait to come back and visit our friends in Jasan Village again soon!

“Ticks all the boxes”
Reviewed June 11, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Merta House was great value - we could not have asked for any more. The house has all the facilities we could have possibly needed. The photos give a true impression. Breakfast was cooked at a time of our choosing, and meals could be ordered and delivered from restaurants, although we loved buying food from friendly local warungs.

But what sets Merta House apart is Made and his friendly, discretely attentive staff. We could be as private as we liked, but it seemed so natural to meet and get to know his family.

Made is also a driver, and can arrange tours and activities as required.

If you are looking for a great place just a little way from the main tourist action, with the chance to experience friendly Balinese hospitality, Merta House ticks all the boxes.

“Unforgettable!”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Amazing stay! Were there for 3 nights but later regretted not staying longer...Made,his lovely family and staff,Wayan and the beautiful little villa will stay in our heart. We started missing them all,right from the moment we left the village.
Would highly recommend if you value good people, honest service and an authentic village setting with natural surroundings.
Thank You Made...for a memorable experience
Waiting to see you all real soon.

“Gorgeous Villa, Stunning Location, Amazing Host, Wonderful 💖”
Reviewed April 23, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Merta House is absolutely stunning! Divine getaway, peaceful, tranquil and so pretty.

My fiancé and I stayed here for 4 nights and it was such a wonderful stay!

Made is an amazingly beautiful soul who looked after us so well during and after our stay. He truly made us feel like part of his family. Great communication and very caring of our safety and enjoyment!

Merta House is set around 20 minutes from Ubud centre and the drive there is stunning. My fiancé and I scooted around on a motorbike the whole time and absolutely loved it! The drive is past villages, rice paddies, art work and a real view into Balinese life.

The actual villa itself is stunning. The decor is authentic Balinese. The architecture of the building is amazing beautiful. Four poster bed, ensuite bathroom, huge lounge and dining area, fully equipped kitchen and the pool area is just divine!

Made & his lovely family cook the yummiest breakfast every morning for you. Your choice is from western to Balinese but I highly recommend their Balinese food. We had fresh fruit every morning which was also always available in the house.

Made organised a pick up for us from anywhere in Bali and took both my fiancé and I on separate occasions to the airport as a part of our stay. After my finance left Made advised me to stay at his sisters homestay which was wonderful!

We felt so safe and at home at Made's home. It was wonderful and when we return to Bali we will definitely be back to stay!

Thank you Made for everything you did for us whilst we were there. We cannot thank you enough!

Suksma

“Superb Service, Great Facilities”
Reviewed April 20, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

people found this review helpful

Staying here was a real treat with the very warm and friendly staff who provided absolutely fantastic service. There was a warm breakfast cooked in the villa every morning (at whatever time you wish) and Made the manager/private driver gave really good recommendations for food and things to do. He also gave us some insight into village living in Ubud, regaling us with recounts of the ceremonies rituals and simple day to day living experiences. The staff were also very accommodating with special requests and such.

The private pool is kept really clean with minimal chemicals and it's of a decent enough size for 4 people. Beds were more than comfortable (1 king and 1 double bed) and the air conditioning and fan were adequate in keeping the villa at a nice temperature. The main toilet with a shower is pretty big and well ventilated and there is another toilet just next to the kitchen.

Location wise, it's a 20min drive to Ubud town centre and it's fairly isolated - you won't be wandering around at night!

All in all, if you want some top notch service during your stay in Ubud, and you want some peace and quiet (though my friend was ready to strangle the roosters), away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Merta House is the place for you!
