Owner's Response: Nous avons eu d'excellents échanges avant et durant le séjour de Guy et de son groupe de voyageurs. Kadek, a eu grand plaisir à les "bichonner" quand ils n'étaient pas en excursion. C'est avec grand plaisir que nous avons pu nous organiser pour les garder une nuit supplémentaire avant leur départ à la découverte de l'est de Bali. Nous serons heureux d'accueillir Guy et ses amis lors d'un prochain séjour à Bali. Johan.

House was nice location not so much

  • 3 of 5

First the good - house is spacious well set up with a nice ambiance a good pool and an excellent care taker Kadek. There are 4 bedrooms so lots of people can fit. Outside view is of rice fields which is nice.

Now the bad - first is the location which is at an end of a village going through very tight streets and hard to find also there are lots of wild dogs around so you can't just go out walking you must have a car to even venture outside the gate of the house. There is lot of other wild life around so the noise is very high at all times of night and can keep you awake especially this one animal which I could not figure out but it came out at night and made the loudest shrieks which woke us up a few times every night. It's about half hour drive from Ubud so you need your own transport as you can't get a taxi easily where the house is located. Communication with owner was good.

Owner's Response: Traditionally, Balinese people have a mutualistic relationship with dogs. In the Hindu epic, the Mahabharata, one of the main characters, Yudisthira, makes a pilgrimage with six companions. When he arrives at the gates of heaven, his only surviving companion is a dog. Yudisthira refuses the gatekeeper’s command to abandon the dog in order to enter heaven, since the dog had loyally protected him throughout the journey. It is actually Yudisthira who has passed a test of loyalty as the dog transforms into his father Dharma. This story illustrates the Balinese Hindu concept of ngayah or loyalty and total dedication to the gods. The name Dharma is also significant, as the concept of dharma is central to the moral code of Balinese Hindus and their beliefs about maintaining cosmic and social order. This order maintains gods above humans, and humans above dogs. A similar story is dedicated to the gecko who shrieks (a holy greeting for the balinese) in the night; we are sorry to read that this time it happend "every night". We are very happy to read that Kadek, our care taker, is excellent; all our guests have made the same congratulations. Kadek knows that we are not close to Ubud, that's why she is always happy to organise, daily if required, any trip to any direction at any time. She also cooks delicious balinese and indonesian meals! Saraswati House is an authentic balinese home in a 100% balinese village, away from the hustle and bustle of touristic spots. With the support of our balinese neighbours and friends we try to keep it that way, most of the time for the bliss of our guests. Johan & Fadoi

Traumhaftes Ferienhaus mit Blick auf Reisfelder

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa Saraswati ist ein wunderschönes, sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Haus, das für 2 Familien ausreichend Platz bietet. Vom Essplatz hat man einen traumhaften Blick auf Reisfelder, Palmen und den schönen Pool. Kadek, die das Haus versorgt und (auf Nachfrage) abends lecker für uns gekocht hat, stand uns stets zur Seite: Sei es um unsere vielen Fragen zu beantworten, uns ein paar Wörter Balinesisch beizubringen, beim Planen von Ausflügen zu helfen (Wildwasserrafting, Besteigung der Gunung Batur etc.) oder uns zu zeigen, wie man Sarongs für einen Tempelbesuch wickelt. Sukseman, liebe Kadek!

Die Villa Saraswati liegt am Rande des kleinen Städtchens Blahbatuh, weitab vom Tourismus, so dass man balinesischen Alltag ganz authentisch miterleben kann, z.B. bei einem Spaziergang durch die Straßen, bei einer Zeremonie im Tempel oder auf dem Local Market. An die nächtliche Geräuschkulisse aus Hundegebell und Hahnengeschrei hatten wir uns bald gewöhnt - Oropax für diejenigen mit leichtem Schlaf gehören jedenfalls ins Reisegepäck.

Die Fahrt nach Ubud dauerte - je nach Verkehr - 20 bis 30 Minuten. Kadek brachte uns mehrmals dorthin. Zurück nahmen wir immer ein Taxi.

Johan, der Vermieter, hat vor der Reise immer sehr freundlich und ausführlich auf all unsere Anfragen geantwortet.

Wir empfehlen das Ferienhaus gerne weiter und würden am liebsten bald selber wiederkommen.

MAGIQUE

  • 5 of 5

Rentrons de BALI où nous avons passé de très belles vacances dans cette splendide villa à la décoration soignée. Le lieu est magique, hors du temps qui aspire à la Zénitude.

Garderons un souvenir inoubliable de Kadek, la maitresse de maison, qui a été aux petits soins avec nous en nous préparant de bons petits plats balinais que nous avons adorés. Elle est tout simplement formidable. Et une pensée aussi à Ketut qui nous a conduit là où nous voulions aller.... Les Balinais sont tout simplement charmants.

Un grand merci à Yoan, le propriétaire pour tous ces conseils mais surtout de nous avoir accueillis chez lui.

Je recommande vivement cette location.

Un vrai bonheur

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer 10 jours dans la villa "Saraswati", à 9 (donc 4 enfants), en famille.

La villa est très spacieuse, très bien décorée, avec beaucoup de goût. Piscine extrêmement agréable. Bali est une île magnifique et la région d'Ubud tout particulièrement.

Un très grand merci à Yoan, le propriétaire, très agréable et toujours de bons conseils, ainsi qu'à Kadek, la maîtresse de maison qui est une excellente cuisinière et dont la disponibilité a été sans faille!!!

Location à vivement recommander.

Guillaume
