This is the second time my daughter and I have stayed at The Garden Cottage and it was just as beautiful as the first. We were greated by Mary the owner as well as Wayan and Made her adorable staff. There was a huge platter of tropical fruit waiting for us as well as a gorgeous arrangement of flowers. The villa is spotless and was cleaned every day. We were always supplied with drinking water which was very much appreciated. The outdoor shower is heaven! The pool is very clean and well maintained and we spent many afternoons relaxing there. The surrounding gardens are so lush we took many photos to look back on. Our balonys overlooked a beautiful rainforest which was just amazing!
Again we were very sad to leave this little piece of paradise to say goodbye to Mary,Wayan and Made our "Bali family". We will certainly be back. Thank you all.

We were absolutely delighted the moment we arrived at this cottage! We knew it was worth the bumpy 4-hour flight from Manila.
Mary Lee, the owner, renovated this traditional Balinese house in a way that keeps its South East asian personality, but adding amenities like wi-fi, hot water, a working kitchen (we cooked lots of meals), air-conditioning,flat screen TV with DVD player (and lots of DVD titles!), and even a saltwater wading pool nearby.
This cottage is really a house with 2 levels with a balcony on each level. The best bedroom is the downstairs one with its double-bed and a Bali-style bathroom. The bedroom upstairs is a bit more basic, but still comfortable. It also has its own bathroom.
You can't ask for a better "landlord" in Mary, who was very patient with us when we were finalizing the booking. She also introduced us to her neighbor, Made, who has a car (Toyota Innova). A very affable, honest man whom we hired to pick us up from the airport and bring us around.
My wife and I stayed here with our youngest daughter (who took time off from work) for 7 days. We're already planning our return next year!
Dear Jolan and Antonette, Thank you for your glowing review. It was a delight having you here. The perfect guests. You are my first visitors from the Philippines and I hope you will come back to visit again with some of your friends and family. Hope your foot is well mended by now, Jolan. Think a week resting in the villa did it a world of good. Take care. Warm Regards, Mary

I visited Ubud many times and so far none can beat the Garden villa! Stayed there for 9days and feeling at home and fully relax. I feel like i wanted to stay in the villa everday as its so lovely!
The rooms and their balconies are perfect place to lay back and seeing the beauty of rice field and very private. The villa being cleaned everyday except on sunday, and everything you need are there.
It's only 10min walk to central and by 5min walk you may find cafe seniman, nice cafe for breakfast, and iman spa is so close to get good body massage.
Mary the owner is so helpful dan has good sense of humour (luckily we found times to have dinner together, it was fun!)
i would definetly go back to the villa when visiting Ubud in near future!
It was a delight having you and your husband. I was very happy to have you back again after your stay in Villa Manis and hope you will return on your next visit to Ubud. Thank you for a fabulous and fun dinner out on the town. We will definitely have to go salsa dancing next time you are here. Cheers, Mary

"Very peaceful and comfortable with delightful Balinese staff."
Left on 11/10/2012 for a stay in November 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Nov 10, 2012Stayed Nov 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning. The deck looking over the rice paddies was particularly peaceful and we just loved the huge outdoor bathroom.
It's a 10-15 minute walk into the main street of Ubud through a residential area so you feel part of a local neighbourhood rather than in a tourist area.
