About this listing
Experience authentic, Balinese life. The Payogan Homestay is located within our traditional, Balinese family compound, a 20 minute walk away from Ubud. The room is spacious, with a clean and contemporary style, a beautiful space complemented with Balinese accents. You will wake up to the traditional sounds of Bali and experience the essence of staying in a Balinese village. This listing is for the downstairs room.
The space includes a large bedroom, an attached living space, a kitchenette, and a private bathroom. Should you wish to stay for a longer period, we can provide a stove and other cooking equipment. The large open-air bathroom includes a tub and shower with hot water only a turn-of-a-tap away.
Living in a balinese family compound means that you will have many friendly, neighbors. The compound is home to a large extended family, all of whom are very involved in traditional Balinese life, and committed to our village ceremonies. Many of these ceremonies also take place in the family temple which is in the middle of the compound. We welcome you to participate if you choose. In fact, we encourage our guests to join us to get the true feeling of Balinese culture. We can always help you through the experience and provide the traditional wear. We can also introduce you to some local craftspeople if you're interested in Balinese art and clothing.

If you have decided to go to Ubud area, then you should definitely stay at Ketut's place. It's outside (appr. 15 min by taxi/ scooter) the busy and touristic centre of the village and in the middle of a beautiful Balinese street. By that it's close enough to take a walk to Ubud trough the beautiful paddy fields and far enough to be away from the noisy and crowded centre. Closer by (10 min. walk) you have a few nice bars and restaurants, but joining dinner with Ketut and his family is definitely an option worth while.
Staying at Ketut's is choosing for Balinese hospitality optima forma. You feel welcome from the first step you take on their family compound and they (Ketut, his two sons and the rest of the family and staff) are always around without being obtrusive. They helped us with transport to Ubud and their son took us all the way to our next destination because we failed to get a taxi in time.
Off course that's all nice but besides the above, the room we got was beautiful, clean and spacious too. Breakfast was served at a beautiful and large wooden table in the middle of the compound. Be prepared for some noises at night as the green surrounding contains several animals that have a different routine than you probably have. But you will find out that that is inherent to beautiful Bali too.

Ketut and his family certainly welcomed us to their family compound and gave us a very enjoyable visit. Nothing was overlooked with the accommodation and his wife cooks better than the restaurants. From the moment you wake to the sounds of the livestock to a deliciously served dinner, no question is too hard to answer and transport is provided whenever it is needed.
Thank yo Jenny for you stay with my family .
For other host:
I am with my family have very good time to have Jenny with her husband stay in my house .
They are very friendly, easy going and left the my room lovely and clean. Would be happy to have them back at any time and hopefully next time I can meet the again .
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Ketut's place. The garden in the compound is so beautiful and whole place has a really relaxed atmosphere. Ketut was immensely helpful when we asked him about things to do in Ubud and we ended up renting a scooter from him for a very reasonable price.
We didn't have much time for breakfast during our short stay, but Ketut's family was so quick to prepare our meals that we ended up enjoying a fresh fruit salad, banana pancake, omelette and awesome coffee before leaving for our day trip. If you're looking for a quiet place to unwind with delicious breakfast, awesome coffee and an even better host, you should definitely book a few nights at Payogan Homestay. I wish we could have stayed longer!
This is my first Airbnb experience and I had a great time staying in Ketut's place. The room and bed were super spacious and I loved the authentic Baliness setting. Ketut and his family were very warm and helpful. I also enjoyed the delicious homemade breakfast each morning. Staying in Ketut's place made this Bali trip very memorable. I would highly recommend his place to friends and family who would like to visit Bali. Thank you for the memory, Ketut!
Best ever place to stay in Ubud! Ketut and his whole family is so kind and always ready to share their island, thank you very much to his sons, really good guides!
Staying at Payogan is living the real balinese life, just as far from busy-noisy Ubud to enjoy this quiet place and so close also to enjoy all this place!5-7 min with a scooter from the center of Ubud, by walk a little bit longer but you'll find good restaurant by walking 5 or 10 minutes.
The place is more beautiful than in the pretty pictures, you'll stay in a tropical garden with a family temple and breakfast is excellent (thank you the cooker!).
The place is very clean and the shower is a so pleasant experience outside.
Don't hesitate, we'll recommand this place for your stay!
Le studio de Ketut a Payogan est parfait pour un séjour a Ubud, juste assez loin de la cité bruyante mais suffisamment près pour en profiter pleinement (la location de scooter est très peu chére, Ketut nous en a proposé un).
A pied vous trouverez de super restaurants sur la route qui descend a Ubud, pour prendre vos habitudes en degustant de délicieux plats.
Ketut et toute sa famille sont trés accueillants et disponibles pour echanger avec vous, ses fils sont de trés bons guides et ravis de faire visiter leur île.
Le studio est encore plus joli qu'en photo, caché dans un joli jardin tropical à coté du temle familial, très propre et la douche en exterieur est juste delicieuse.
Vous passerez un super sejour chez Ketut, prenez votre temps...nous sommes restés une semaine mais aurions pu prolonger notre séjour pour en profiter d'avantage.
Fint bemötande under hela vistelsen. Underbar familj, vegetation, och fint rum. Ketut var en trevlig person! Perfekt ställe att bo på om en reser med barn. Rent och snyggt!
