Spent 3 weeks here in may 2012 with my girlfriend.
Linda, the owner, is a lovely person and runs a fantastic bed and breakfast. The staff is wonderful, the rooms were thoroughly cleaned every day. The rooms have comfortable beds, air conditioning, a fridge and a small bottle of water per day. The rooms and bathrooms have been recently renovated. The location is relatively quiet for South Bali. In some of the rooms you can still hear the traffic and the roosters might wake you up in the early hours of the morning. Bring ear plugs if you are a very light sleeper. I am a light sleeper and I didn't have any problems. At breakfast you get a choice between continental (eggs the way you want them+toast+jam+fruit juice+coffee or tea) and indonesian breakfast (fried noodles+egg+juice and coffee or tea).
The Kerobokan area offers many good restaurants within a short drive or 15 minute walk (there is a very good and inexpensive Warung, Warung Sobat II just around the corner from the homestay!) and the location is an ideal base to explore South and Central Bali and is a 25 minute walk to the beach. Note that the traffic is very bad all over South Bali, ask Linda to arrange a driver+car (approx 40usd per day as of may2012 for the day) or you can also rent a motorbike/scooter approx 3-4usd per day as o may 2012.
Linda gave us fantastic advice on what to visit and some brilliant tips that were most useful during our stay.
The staff are on 24 hour security duty so I always felt my belongings were super safe.
We did not use the pool, but the water looked nice and clean and the pool area is very nice+relaxing.
Only improvements I could see to the room: the fridge was a little noisy, but you can ask to disconnect it and the sliding doors would often not close properly at the first attempt.
A big thanks to Linda and her staff for the wonderful stay, we felt at home.
