A permaculture acreage located within minutes of arguably 'the most' breathtaking surf breaks in Bali; this Eco-conscious living property would be best enjoyed by travellers with the environment, nature and the culture of Bali at the forefront of their interests.
30 minutes south of the Kuta & Seminyak tourist traps is the real Bali; 'The Bukit' Peninsula's secret wonderland Pandawa beach and bushlands. Secret surf breaks, empty golden sandy beaches, and laid back villagers of yesteryear still exist here. You'll unlikely see another westerner in this entire neighbourhood; yet it's not far to all of their haunts should you wish to get amongst that too.
Pandawa beach is on Bali's most magical southern tip, 'The Bukit Peninsula', and it contains hands down, Bali's best swimming, snorkeling and surfing beaches. The crystal azure waters that wet the sand here are Pandawa Beach, Green Bowl, Bali Cliff, Uluwatu, Nusa Dua, Padang Padang, Bingin, Dreamland & (website hidden) Tara permaculture acreage is tickled by the cool sea breezes. It is located at the end of one of Pandawa Beach's long hilly roads leading into farmlands. When night falls, the only noises you can hear surrounding the property will be geckos laughing and cicadas singing. It is a completely private eco permaculture acreage in the making. Everyday we're setting up new composting, edible gardens, and a vista of tropical flowering plants.
When we began this Eco project in March 2013, we did it with the vision of providing an inspiring environment in order to offer our gratitude to all Bali has given and continues to give us, and everyone who comes here. Many guests have come here and begun truly transformational experience.
The Entire Bukit Peninsula is only 10 x 15 klms in radius and encased in a coral reef. So depending on the tides, winds and swell it will produce completely different surfing conditions all over The Bukit at different times of the year. We are in the prime location to access all of these places. If yoga is your thing, there are plenty of places to practise in the yoga bales at my local beach, at my property or in a daily class down the road in Pecatu, Bingin or Jimbaran.
This property is newly built, clean and in immaculate condition. It has edible gardens to enjoy, an outdoor communal kitchen and lounge / library area equipped with DVD, TV, HDMI cables and loads of awesome books.
This is nature reserve; a permaculture farm set alongside eco-friendly accommodation. It’s for those of you who like getting as close as it gets to nature and Bali's culture without forsaking the majority of your western comforts. It’s a relaxed space particularly suited to single travellers. You'll also get to know other chill expats and travellers as we have many wonderful friends and long term guests.
Our focus on all guest rooms is quality and eco sustainability. The fan-cooled rooms are furnished with new high quality mattresses, custom made coconut wood slat bases, and hypo-allergenic pillows and bedding. Rooms are serviced for cleanliness Monday – Saturday.
Eco Villa Room Rates:
1 week: USD 230 + cleaning & airbnb fees
1 month: USD 480 + cleaning & airbnb fees
It is very important to us that Green Tara remains a relaxed, caring, safe and peaceful environment for all who live here. What you do or who you do it with outside of the property is entirely up to you. However, should you wish to bring anyone outside of our original agreement onsite, you will need to ask permission first. The rates for the rooms are for one person only. Additional persons are charged USD 10 per night per room and should be applied for at the time of booking.
Cleaning & admin fees are USD 25 per week. All rooms, common areas and bathrooms are serviced every day except Sunday.
There is no public transport in Bali. You will need to hire a scooter or hire a car if you stay here. I organise transfers to the property and can have scooters delivered from a trusted local outlet.
A course of lessons in riding a scooter are available for USD 40 (3 lessons). If you’ve never ridden before, you'll need at least three days for lessons and to practise before you hit the busier roads.
Internet data for your device (Ipad, tablet or smart phone) is available for USD 10 per 5 gig. Please note: as this is a conscious living community property - we request that your usage of internet in the common areas of the property is limited. It's not a strict rule, it's a reminder to be mindful that this is a community set up to facilitate down time with yourself, connections with other humans and nature rather than constant contact with technology.
There is plenty of opportunity to be social and meet wonderful new friends while staying at Green Tara. Sometimes there's chilled music with a beer in the garden at sunset - but please bear in mind it is not a party space.
Noble silence is observed on the Green Tara nature reserve between the hours of midnight and 9 am every day of the week without exception. Absolutely no talking, laptop, phone noise, or music between the hours of midnight and nine am. This allows everyone to go about their personal business (rest, meditation, morning cuppa, yoga etc) without the obligation of mindless chatter. It gives us all the opportunity to start each day in a calm and mindful way.
If you would like to stay with us, when you apply, ensure you have a complete profile (photo, and uploaded offline Passport ID). Because this is a home – not a hotel we are looking for the right fit of people to stay here, and unfortunately we can’t say yes to everyone.
Before we can offer you a space, please help us figure out if you’d be a good match for Green Tara by sending us a message letting us know a little about yourself, your plans and your interest is staying with our unique community set up. If you are a couple or two friends wanting to share, please write to us individually.

My time at Raquels beautiful place was simply amazing. She welcomed me very warm, after I arrived she showed me everything, I got my first scooter lesson and then she took me to one of the beautiful beaches, where I could experience the crystal-clear water and an amazing sunset. And this was only the beginning... I booked only for one week first but after I left to explore the Island a little I decided to come back, its just a good place to relax, to connect with the other great people there and of course explore the region. Raquel is very connected to the region and the people living there, I am very grateful that she shares her place and her experience. Love & Blessings
Raquel's property is truly in an amazing part of Bali. Far from the tourist traps in Kutah, you are able to get an authentic Balinese experience as her property is in the middle of a typical Balinese village. Raquel helps set you up with everything you could possibly want, and makes you feel welcome in her home. Not to mention how close she is is to some amazingly pristine beaches. One of the best vacations Ive had
