The house and grounds are beautiful and the location is great-- an amazing property you would never expect at the end of the entrance lane. We walked to restaurants and coffee each day, but you may want to take a taxi or motorbike if you don't enjoy the walk. Made and his famil…

Thank you mightily for the feedback. As an absentee homeowner for the past 40 years, I rely on input form my manager. I closed my home for 4 months late last year while we put in an entire new water system and filtration system to the home after the new Javanese owners of the land across from us bulldozed out home spring water supply in violation of our lease on a spring there. I knew they were building something there, but could get no more information. Building like that seriously impacts the ambience, and I apologize. I hope it is short-lived (things are built quickly in Bali...) and that the structure is not intrusive. I will contact Made immediately re: the pool condition. Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about the construction other than wish it a rapid conclusion. I WILL notify coming guests of these issues, and more importantly work to adjudicate them! --Michael Goodman
We had a wonderful time at Dr. Michael’s house. We loved the tropical garden , the house, the pool and the private atmosphere. Made and his wife Ketut took good care of us and were very helpful in all matters and extremely friendly. Their son Wayan and his wife took us to a templ…
After staying 6 nights in Dr Michaels house we are sad to say goodbye. The stay in the house will forever be remembered as some of the best days during our Bali round trip. Arriving at the house we were totally mesmerized by the change from the busy life in Ubud to the tranquilit…

Thanks, Kim, for your kind words. Believe it or not, when I lived in Bali for 9 months in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) , and designed & built "Rumah Kartika Dharma," there were NO OTHER structures along the entire Campuhan to Penestanan road other than 2 family compounds, Munut's Homestay, one shop, and Blanco's (then small) painting compound. All you saw on that road has come since. The one unchanging thing is Rumah Kartika Dharma. I have endeavored, mostly successfully, to keep it locked in time. (You see why I have steadfastly declined to build a road down to the property...) :) Michael
This was a very special stay in an absolutely fantastic place. We loved every minute in this amazing place. The house itself is very large with spacious living areas and even more impressive was the location and the people that work there. Although we were only a few minut…
So lovely to be hosted by Made and his family, and everything ran smoothly. It's a bit more traditional and rustic than a swish hotel, but all the better for it as it felt like staying with friends. A private, green oasis, lovely place with Ubud town just a walk away. We had four…

Thanks, Sarah. I will remind Made to make sure the mosquito nets are in good repair! As for extra mattress, that's difficult, as things get funky in a hurry if not used, and a spare mattress (there are no such things as foldable futons in Bali stored somewhere might do that. Also, the house is simply not big enough to accommodate > 5-6 persons. What some have done is use the large lounge on the veranda as a sleeping area, but of course it's not bug-proof. But-- I will give your suggestion some serious thought; thanks for taking the time to critique! Best, MG
