Ubud - Home Rental Locations?

Jump to last reply

Hi, we are 3 couples (possibly 4) in our early 50's going to Ubud, Bali in April 2015 for four nights (after 7 days in Phuket/Phi Phi in Thailand). We'd like to rent a private villa/home (not shared with other visitors) and want to be reasonably close to town, preferably something with a traditional Balinese flavor. I've done some searching, and there seems to be homes within walking distance to town, while others require a 10-15 minute drive. I suppose either of those options could work, but I'm a little confused by whether they are actually private homes, or more like small sprawling rental bungalows with shared common areas where other guests might also be staying. Also, is one area more preferred...north of Ubud?, south? east? west? Or should we try to get right in town instead? Walking distance seems ideal, but then again, having a fabulous place with beautiful surroundings and ambiance to return to is equally important. Budget isn't a strong factor.

Can anyone give me any insight based on their experience in the area? Any other advice or opinions?
