This stay exceeded all our expectations as Made and his whole family made us feel so welcome. The villa is so private and the location, in Jasan village, was really authentic. We were a bit concerned that it might be a bit isolated, but Made and his family were always on hand to take us places. We requested that they take us to eat at real Warungs, not touristy restaurants, and they did just that! These were some of our best eating experiences! Our two girls got to join the local girls for a Balinese dance lesson - a very memorable experience for them and Wayan (Cak Boom) accompanied us on a wonderful walk through the rice paddies to see his family's paddy and visit the blessing temple. We were invited into Made's home temple to witness a special family ceremony to celebrate his daughter passing 42 days... So many highlights. It's impossible to write them all. Suffice to say that nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel so welcome that we didn't want to leave (in fact there were tears when it came time to go)
Stayed at Merta house with my wife and son (22 month old). Since it was our first time in Bali i was abit watchful towards everything. But after spending just minutes at Metra and its Manager Made, we felt completely at home (they even put up a pool fence up to help us relax). The accommodation is comfortable, warm and homely. Everything you'll need is already though out for you. A warm surprise was Made's taxi/guide service, he was immensely helpful, honest and friendly (like family). Merta house most certainly helped in making Bali a wonderful experience. now our question isn't if we'll stay at Metra again, but when.. Hopefully sooner than later.
Pros: Nice open living space, clean large enough pool, with manicured garden, taxi service with a friendly guide, lovely atmosphere around the house.
Cons: none at all..
Advise: explore the guide/taxi service Merta offers, also the gorgeous partner SPA massage service.

Merta House and it's surrounding community is a truly liberating experience. The accomodation, service and location was exceptional.
I will be back to visit again.
My second stay at merta house in the beautiful Jasan village. This time Made took us to Kintamani lake at MT Batur at the base of the volcano... OMG the best experience Ever!! You just absolutely must go to and experience relaxing in the hot springs overlooking the gorgeous lake at the base of the volcano the scenery is breathtaking.. My friend did traditional fishing in the lake with the boys which was a very fun cultural experience for him too.:. Amazing staff who go out of their way to give you a great experience . Then we had a jungle walk through made's cousins property which again the scenery was stunning and we got to try all locally grown fruits etc picked straight from the tree in the jungle.. Coconuts cacao mangosteens mangoes it was so awesome.. Cannot wait to come back here it is the best place in Bali to visit.. Thanks again made
We very much liked this house. kind sympathetic personnel. remarkable people!!! The driver of Made showed us all sights and in detail told about each temple. with a family everything very much was pleasant to me!
House pure and cozy. There is a small garden with the normal pool where it is pleasant to relax. We will surely return here to our following visit to Bali.
I recommend for all who wants to spend holidays in culture of Bali!!!
