Wonderful villa in great location! Highly recommended.
"We cannot say enough positive things about the wonderful week our family of 6 adults had at this magical Bali (Ubud) villa. Robin was very responsive and easy to deal with to get the booking in place, and even sent us a long list of recommended places to eat. She and her Bali team also seamlessly took care of our pick-up at the airport - which is where we met the incomparable Wayan (Bali's best driver and tour guide!!!). Wayan took such wonderful care of us from the moment he picked us up - giving us the local tour and guiding info as we travelled to the house. We used his services most days we were there - for more local and day trips to Blue Lagoon, Gunung Kawi temple, Tampak Siring Holy Spring temple (a must see - we were lucky to be there during purification rights), and a variety of shopping, restaurants and cultural activities as well as simple guidance on groceries and banking. He made our whole week so much easier - our personal Bali tour guide! Thank you Wayan. We miss you and will never forget our time with you.
The house is even more impressive than is described here or that the photos can do justice to. Just know that it is every bit as wonderful as the photos and other reviews depict. It is set in a very rural surrounding (rice paddies on one side, jungle on the other) less than 2 km down the road that takes you to the main intersection in Ubud - and close to lots of great restaurants, shopping on Hanoman Street and Monkey Forest Road. Wonderful private refuge - beautifully and lushly landscaped, wide verandas with a variety of chairs and comfortable sofas and outdoor ceiling fans, and lots of space to share or have privacy at any time. Great for families or groups of friends.
The treasure of the property was Made who cooked our breakfast every day, took care of our rooms, and was just a joy to be around each day. We looked forward to her arrival every morning :) She seemed as interested in us as we were in her and we had many great conversations with her while she worked away. We tried lots of new foods and fruits - including mangosteen. Delicious food. Made was also available for us to retain for other meals and we had a couple of wonderful dinners that she prepared. She kept an eye on us - making sure we had any directions we needed (paddy trail to town) and making sure we could navigate safely. Much gratitude to Made for everything she did in taking care of during the week. We will remember you and your graciousness. Thank you."

"We loved it here. Ubud was our last denstination after three weeks in Bali and Nusa Lembogan and the Gilis. We previously stayed in Sanur ( which we hated, btw), so we were much relieved to discover this apartment was everything we hoped it would be. The apartment itself is quite large with a comfy high quality bed. The kitchen area made it possible to have our breakfast and lunches and even occassionally dinners in. A well stocked grocery store is just a short walk.
The pool was lovely, and a nice respite from the heat. But really the grounds are breathtaking. There is a temple within the compound, and the tropical foliage is well tended. The whole place was just peaceful.
It is a bit of a walk to the main area of Ubud, but taxis are practically always right outside the compound, and cheap. There is a restaurant next door that has great bbq ribs- we ate there twice, so if you don't feel like schlepping into town, there are many restaurants to close from right nearby.
The housekeeper that came everyday was so warm and always smiling- it seems she can just about arrange anything you want- a driver, your laundry done, a massage ( there's a lot of spas close by).
I really recommend you stay here if Ubud is in your travel plans, you will love it."

"This villa is a the perfect place to escape and unwind. It is surrounded by beautiful green rice paddies and mountains in the distance. We watched a storm roll in from the bedroom balcony and even from the bed with floor to ceiling windows. Quite romantic with the mosquito netting draped over the bed (yet furnished with aircon). Though this villa is a duplex style with a shared pool, it is designed for privacy. Only 6km from the heart of Ubud, and 4km from some beautiful terraced rice paddies and local artisan shops. Max catered to our needs including a yummy dinner and great massages in our villa, bicycle and motorbike rentals, etc... Don't miss the Uma Cucina and Bridges restaurants!"

Villa Madu is the best value luxury villa in Ubud. It's also GAY FRIENDLY!
"This is actually my second visit to Villa Madu. I have stayed at many villas in Ubud over the years but if I am with a group of 4 or more people, this is my absolute favourite. It is 5 mins walk to Ubud Central Post Office and Ubud Market. However, when you are within the grounds of Villa Madu you really think you could be in a beautifully manicured jungle. The view is beautiful from every room in the house and the little Joglos at the bottom of the property.
The staff were wonderful. Dewa and Wayan are always ready to help with any requests no matter what. Nurdi the wonderful cook was so happy to accommodate us with friends' sometimes odd dietary requirements.
The photos on this site don't do the villa justice. It really is a very special place with that old time bali feel but with all the modern comforts required.
I definitely recommend this place for families (modern and traditional) and for groups of friends. I'd like to have my next birthday event at the villa."
