in Indonesia I spent four months traveling with my girlfriend and throughout this period Ume Sita was home to me. My friends who live in Bali, recommended me this place, but I think even without that, it's hard to find something better than this beautiful house, which certainly is a very attractive competition for other opportunities to stop here for short and long term.
Firstly, this place wouldn't be the same without the hosts. Wonderful people and so really thanks to them, we got to know many aspects of the island, but most importantly, we gained new family members on the other side of the globe :)
They also have scooters for rent, so right away you can begin to explore the island, without having to worry about transportation. However, if you don't have driving license, the owner of the house, is also working as a driver, and therefore I think that the pick up from the airport in Denpasar, or ride in a few places, wouldn't be a problem. For example, for us he even arranged a climb-trip to Batur, from beginning to end, for a very good price.
Ume Sita is located 7 minutes ride from Ubud, surrounded by rice fields in small village - Pejeng. As we love travelling on motorbike, we've explored whole Island from this location, and as it is basically in the middle of the island, all must-see places in Bali are easily reachable from here (we've been also in Jawa and Lombok on motorbike, so yes, it is doable from here :)).
On the other hand, if you are not explorer, you can just spend some time, walking around and enjoying the view of wild rice paddies, or going to joga to Ubud, or by public bus to the beach etc.
What more can I write , if you're only looking for a place in Bali on vacation, or a longer stay and do not want to live in super-duper-fancy-resort-hotel-and-spa, the choice is simple , stay in Ume Sita!
Beautiful, clean apartment , large bright kitchen , perfect location, and what is the real heart of Bali - wonderful people , not destroyed by the mania to getting rich on western tourists.
Wish you a pleasant stay in Bali and I hope that our review will help a little bit, because really, it's hard on the island to find a good place to stay.
