DINING-6 chairs go with our dining table, so that's the limit for sit-down meals.
GUESTS COOKING - If you want to make something special, please invite Ketut to assist/learn and help – your scrupulous cleanup is needed in Bali to prevent bugs.

Extra staff hours TBA with timely notice and extra salary. If you use the house as a social center in late evening (chips and drinks), check with Ketut how to clean so there's no mess in the morning.

KEYS-normally we can issue up to 3 sets; due back (of course) when you leave; please don't forget!
DRIVER RATES — check at the tourist office. I pay Madé exactly what I would pay any other regular driver in Ubud.
TIPS - Tip Ketut weekly for her good service. For example, $5 equivalent in rupiah per week per couple will be very appreciated, as are good quality imported chocolates
DECORUM - please behave on the grounds in accordance with Balinese cultural standards (i.e., no nudity in the yard, for example) and no violence.
