Our light and airy guest house is a sweet get away that is still close to Ubud. Walking and biking distance to the great food and conveniences of Ubud. Live in one of the most vibrant communities of artists in the world - Pengosekan.
This self contained unit is on the Cudamani Pondok compound. The cottage feels secluded and is surrounded by trees and beautiful garden. It is located next to the family home of Dewa Berata and Emiko Susilo, internationally recognized leaders of Gamelan Cudamani. (website hidden) Set off the street, you will feel a part of the Balinese community- which includes roosters, neighboring cows. If you like the sounds of frogs, crickets, Balinese lizards, occasional gamelan and dance rehearsals, then this is the place for you.
The ground floor has simple cooking facilities as well as a quiet sitting area. Upstairs the bedroom has one queen bed, dresser armory and a three sided veranda. Bathroom facilities located on the ground floor include a shower with warm water. The facility is clean with basic housekeeping support. However, we seek self-sufficient guests who can manage your own daily activities and who respect the lives of the Balinese families that surround this cottage. Breakfast and WIFI are not included.
Our village of Pengosekan is directly south of Ubud (walking distance of 15 minutes to the south edge of Ubud). An abundance of restaurants (local and for tourist) are readily available.
We are of island now, so it is nice and quiet. Our family lives just down the private road that leads to our house and just next door, so you have people close by should anything urgent come up. Our cousins and nieces are super sweet and will help you if you need anything, but basically you will have a guest house to yourself.
Pengosekan is renowned for its arts. It is a hub of artistic activities. Internationally acclaimed musicians, dancers and composers are just walking around the streets! I love the paintings, baskets and gamelan that surround us here.
Easy to walk or bike to Ubud. We have a fabulous transport person who can help you get anywhere. I can give you his contact info once we confirm our booking!
We love our home and would love to have kind, open hearted people there. Our garden is full of big big trees, ferns, birds, butterflies. When you walk off the street into the compound, the cool air from the shade of the trees always makes me think "I'm so glad this is my home." This is not a hermetically sealed 5 star hotel, it's a real home. If you want the Four Seasons, this isn't the place for you. But if you want to feel what it's like to be in Bali, you're in the right place.
The Cudamani guest house is a nice oasis away from the busy streets of Ubud. It was great to have a western bathroom and shower as well as a cozy bed with a mosquito net. Comfortable and spacious, with a nice porch. Bonus: Travel books there to help you out during your visit.
