We enjoyed three seperate stays at Jangkrik during February and March 2013.
The room is fantastic value. Only 150,000 for a double room with hot water, great wifi and a extremely tasty pancake breakfast.
The homestay is in walking distance of a number of very good restaurants and a 20 minute walk from the main street. Some people may think that is a bit far but walking around Ubud in itself is an attraction.
Jangkrik offer a number of tours as well. We decided to do a full day tour with a driver which cost us 300,000. We visited three temples, a coffee plantation, Kintamani and the rice terraces. It was a great day which enabled us to engage with the whole region.
The family are very friendly and are always fun to talk to and take great interest in your trip.
There are a number of cats and kittens dotted around the homestay which was great for animal lovers like us but if you are allergic to cats then stay away!
There is also a very friendly dog and a very grumpy dog. The latter will bark at you everytime you return but is completely harmless and acts as a very good security system!
Our final stay at Jangkrik occured during the Nyepi celebrations and the day of silence. The family made the effort of cooking all the guests lunch and dinner as nobody is allowed to leave their homes on the day of silence.
Ubud became a base for us during 5 weeks in Bali and Jangkrik always felt like home.
Thanks for having us!
