As many have noted, this is a unique and beautiful villa. We also found it very comfortable to live in. It is right in Ubud - just a short walk to the shops and restaurants - yet nature surrounds you.
This villa has so much going for it but what really made it so enjoyable for us was the amazing hospitality of the staff. Of course the Balinese are famous for their hospitality but we thought the staff and the management of the villa here were extra special. We truly felt they just wanted us to be happy. Drivers, scooters and laundry were all arranged for us at such reasonable cost it was apparent that nothing extra was being charged (two bags of laundry for the week cost about $5 US total!). We were inquiring about some large peculiar fruit on one of the surrounding trees and Ilu - the manager - picked us up some delicious white mango from the market to try. Also, on departing, I was given a package of incense as I had inquired what type they were burning in our bath area. These personal touches have created warm memories. Ilu was also great to talk to for insight into Balinese culture. The staff are friendly but discrete and I sense experts in sensing how much privacy is desired. Also loved watching the many, many beautiful offerings and blessings made around the property twice a day (5 just around the pool!). Finally, the value is perhaps unbeatable in "downtown" Ubud. Compare with the price of a midrange two bedroom hotel room on Monkey Forest Road which is really no comparison to this huge spacious beautiful villa.
