"My good fried Ann and I spent 3 weeks at Madrigal Guest House and we could not have asked for a more peaceful place. We loved the open floor plan and spent a lot of our time on the beautiful veranda (we stayed on the lower floor). Wonderful decor and fabulous garden, very clean and well maintained. I loved all the tile floors and large windows with large glass doors opening up to the wonderful wrap around porch. As two younger women traveling abroad we felt very safe here.
Madrigal is perfectly located, far enough away from the main street to be peaceful and yet as close as a 5 minute walk to the market, 2 minutes to Warungs (restaurants) and about 15 minutes to Ubud (taxi to Ubud $3-$5 USD). We took a long walk up through the rice fields above Ubud but also enjoyed the sun coming up over the rice field off our veranda every morning w/our coffee.
Bill was fabulous, welcoming us and making us feel part of the family. Ann had gotten bit by something on the eye and he went to the market to get medicine for her and coils for us to burn on the veranda. Made' was such a great cook, always asking us what we wanted for breakfast, remembering what fruits we liked best and always having it on the ready. I had gotten sick right before arriving and had a bad cough, Made' made me fresh watermelon juice every day insisting it would help...and it did! We met her daughter Kadek and we all had some laughs visiting and getting to know each others cultures.
Wsukia, is Bill's driver and was just a text away if we needed him. He is a busy guy, so when we wanted an all day adventure we made plans ahead to make sure he was available. We took 3 separate trips to different parts of Bali and he was very knowledgeable and funny. He also set up transport for us to go Gili Meno and on a cycling tour. It was very helpful and affordable.
I try to be objective with reviews and coming up w/ something I didn't like is a tough one here. Air conditioning on a few days would have been nice but this was really not a bother with the open air windows and ceiling fans (which the ceiling was beautiful to!) We did have a couple of geckos that hung around on the walls, they were startling at first but became our friends.
We miss you Bill, Ari, Made', Kadek and Wsukia! It was a life changing trip for me and Madrigal made it even better. We will be back! Barbara & Annie"

"Our group included 2 families, 4 adults and 3 kids. The staff were fantastic, and Iluh (the house manager) was such a kind, caring and helpful lady. She was nothing short of amazing, she truly made you feel like you were in your own home. Nothing was too much trouble."

"While at first it was very difficult for us to send payment via bank transfer, those initial fears became completely unfounded. Not being able to pay with visa was a concern; heck, the whole world deals with visa! What we discovered through this experience was that we were dealing with warm, friendly, down-home people in Ketut and her staff. The payment method was a reflection of the care and meticulous detail that was invested in ensuring a vacation second to none. As we had stayed in Seminyak for a week, the Villa Tirta's driver, Ariya, picked us all up and transported us to the waiting luxury of this beautiful villa about 15 minutes outside of Ubud. Luxury was an understatement as we were completely awed upon arrival! The grounds are meticulously kept: the organic garden, the fabulous pool and its decking, the family temple with accompanying daily offerings ceremonies, etc. The villa itself is beyond luxurious: a spacious, clean and extremely well-stocked kitchen, three large beautiful bedroooms with fans and A/C and a large inviting dining area. The upstairs bedroom complete with a huge balcony / terrace was where my wife and I started our day with coffee and tea; it was an excellent getaway in itself for yoga meditation, internet browsing, etc. Ariya, our driver was so accommodating as he waited to take us wherever we wanted to go. Daily trips to Ubud or day-long excursions were thoroughly enjoyed in the air conditioned comfort of his spacious van. Illuh, Petu and the rest of the staff ensured that our breakfasts were always scrumptious and prepared us for a day of activity or leisure. The traditional western breakfasts or the wonderful pineapple, coconut or banana crepes were mouth watering! Dinners were also available by Illuh and the girls upon demand; they were definitely the best meals we had in Bali from the gado-gado, to the chicken satay and pork, fish and chicken dishes to the vegetarian dishes - there was something for everyone in our group. There is absolutely no doubt in our minds that we would return to this villa if we ever planned another trip to Bali. The staff of the villa Tirta Indah treated us like family and facilitated one of the most enjoyable vacations ever!"

"After traveling trough Bali I stayed together with my daughter in the Garden Apartment. We loved it - quiet, nice, beautiful garden with a swimming pool and all over the green rice fields - a traditional place with interesting people and good communication. I like to come back."
