"We had an amazing week at the house, being cared for by Made and her family. The house is wonderful, clean, a perfect getaway from the bustle of Ubud but an easy and enjoyable walk to all the cuisine and shops in Penestanan and Ubud centre. Made is a great cook and worked around the clock to ensure we were happy. Most of all, she and the family were just great with our baby, taking him while we ate and playing with him with affection. I highly recommend Whitney!"

Tranquil perfection amongst the beautiful rice fields of Ubud. Will definitely return.
"i have written this review more than a few times in my head. Even with my journalist background, finding the right words to describe Bali Buddha Villa have been elusive. We arrived in the pitch black and really could not be prepared for what would greet us in the light of day. Despite being only a five minute taxi ride to busy and bustling Ubud, the villa is the epitome of tranquility where you can dive into a good book, splash in the amazing pool, relax with your family (or just yourself) or simply marvel at the lush scenery.
Our entourage included our 12 year old daughter, 19 year old son and my 72 year old mother. We all fell in love not just with this stunning villa but also with Made who was far beyond our cook or cleaner. She became a friend who we relied heavily on to ensure every detail of our bucket list trip was take care of.
Our driver (also Made) was brilliant. He was there to greet us at the airport and fast became another friend we won't soon forget. He politely picked us up daily to show us the various sites of Ubud and beyond. His pride for Bali and the traditions and customs of the Balinese people was infectious. Made took us on the most amazing walk through the rice fields that are easily accessed from town. Every outing and drive was insightful and informative. We never felt rushed or pressured in anyway. His quiet demeanour was the perfect compliment to the laid back but often chaotic pace of Bali life.
After a day of touring or shopping, it was incredibly special to return to Robin's beautiful oasis in the rice fields and jungle. Made made us delicious breakfasts every morning and very often we asked her to make us dinners too. She took care of us on every level from doing our laundry to arranging for massages.
Robin very patiently answered all of my questions before our arrival...and there were a LOT. If I can offer any advice, don't be like me and try to hyper plan things before you get to Bali. Relax and allow yourself to slide into the pace of this beautiful island. You will be in excellent hands and will absolutely not be disappointed. Oh...and learn a little Bahasa or Indonesian. The true gift of Bali is her people. I wish we could have communicated better.
We are already looking forward to returning to this incredible villa. It was so much more than a place to stay. It was an important part of our dream holiday.
Suksma Robin, Made and Made...Wayan too. Hugs to Cleo too!"

"There were four of us who stayed at Rumah Cinta for exactly two weeks. Personally, I believe it is a minimum to really appreciate this unique property and its location, as well as at least this part of the island. We all loved our stay there! The pictures only hint at the artful, stylish, and generous comfort and luxury that surround any resident there. There is so much more to it than what they show! You have to experience it in person, and no photos will do justice to the singular beauty of this place. Forget the “Four Seasons” or any other high-end luxury hotels in Ubud or elsewhere in Bali! While technically this house can sleep more people, I believe that four is an ideal number. There is plenty of space for everybody, really beautiful architecture, and wonderful, very friendly caretakers. The infinity pool is a hit! The different lounging areas and a separate open-air dining “room” are beautiful spaces in addition to what the large house has to offer. There are (102, by my count) stairs to get to the house from the main road, but it serves only as a very nice buffer from the inevitable noise on the main drag. (You would walk on it some ten minutes to downtown Ubud, or take a taxi anywhere from the bottom of the stairs.) If we ever come back to Bali (which I very much hope for, despite our busy travel schedule), there is no other place I would want to stay at! And, have I already mentioned that next time I would like to stay there for three and not just two weeks?! ;]"

"This place is really the full package. I'm been renting vacation homes for years and this is one of the best. If you're travelling to Bali you have to go to Ubud and if you're going to Ubud you have to stay here. The villa is situated just outside Ubud in the most beautiful rice paddies and the view you wake up to is worth the expense alone. On top of that, the pool, the breakfast and everything that Max does...it was just great. You don't meet owners like Max often. He goes above and beyond what I'd reasonably expect from an owner to help make your vacation the best possible experience. Worth every penny."
