Made and his wife are lovely people, kind and available, and the apartment has a lot of character. The apartment is situated in an area full of woodcarving shops (Singhakerta), just a walk away from the monkey forest. It is very close to a lovely area of the city (Nyuh Kuning Village), much more quiet than the centre, where there are affordable but absolutely great restaurants (such as Warung Rama or a great pizzeria just over the bridge to get to the centre), spas, and fantastic juice bars (such as the Almond bar). The apartment is 100m away from a state-of-the-art yoga school (Ubud Yoga Centre) and very close to a bunch of resorts where, for an affordable fee, it is possible to use the swimming pool (see, for instance, Bali Spirit). All these places (the yoga school and the resorts) overlook a beautiful jungle area with a small river running through it. Made's apartment has all you might need: a/c, hot water, 2 bathrooms, a cosy double bed. The kitchen has basic equipment, a fridge and a kettle and is partly outside, so you can have your breakfast looking at the frangipani trees. Nearby there is also a particularly affordable food market. My husband and I lived here for two months and would warmly recommend it to anyone looking for a simple, affordable, characteristic place. Just remember that walking the Ubud roads takes some getting used to, as there are not so many sidewalks but a lot of traffic, and Singhakerta is no exception, but, if you have a scooter or motorbike, you will be fine. Otherwise, all you have to do is walk for a short time until you rich the Nyuh Kuning village, and a small park in particular, a truly lovely spot where you can walk easily around and see the local kids playing with kites while sipping a delicious banana juice or an equally delicious Balinese coffee.
