About this listing

The space

Our lovely villa, Rumah Kodok, is located in a highly sought after area of the artist's village of Penestanan. Its completely private, no sharing. It is only a 15-minute walk from the heart of Ubud, the cultural and art center of Bali. This beautiful one-level, 2-bedroom, 2-bath villa, is on a walking path where there are no motorized vehicles. It is a peaceful neighborhood with a nice friendly mix of both Balinese and expats. Within a few minutes, our walking paths will take you past beautiful rice fields to the many nearby restaurants, spas and laundry service. Our favorite yoga studio, Intuitive Flow, is only a 3-minute walk away. The large western-style Bintang supermarket is only a 5-minute walk away. The villa now has fiber optic high speed internet and enhanced security. We also have lockable drawers that can hold a small computer and other valuables.

Our villa features outdoor living at its best, with a spacious, fully covered veranda overlooking the swimming pool, rice fields and sunsets beyond. The veranda has local Balinese art work, a beautiful antique Javanese daybed, comfortable chairs for visiting, and dining table for four. Also overlooking the pool is a Balinese bale (gazebo) for relaxing with your favorite book after a swim.

There are two large bedrooms, each with an adjoining Balinese-style outdoor bathroom. One bedroom has a 4-post king size bed with mosquito net and the other bedroom has two twin beds with mosquito nets. Both bedrooms have fans, tables, wardrobe closets, chairs, and are beautifully decorated with traditional Indonesian artwork (weavings, necklaces, Javanese antique wedding chest and more). One bedroom has two lockable drawers for your valuables. The drawers will fit a small laptop (13").

The two ensuites are separated by a well equipped kitchen.

Our villa is most easily accessed up about 20 steps from the street, Jalan Sangiggan. These steps are located just south of the Bintang supermarket and will lead you onto a pathway a few minutes walk to our door.

Although this is our home, we will be traveling during your stay, therefore Wayan, our house manager will be your local contact. Wayan will provide cleaning service 3-times per week. Sorry, but we do not provide breakfast.

We hope you will love our home as much as we do and believe our villa will provide you with both a relaxing and fulfilling Bali experience.

If you want a beautiful and peaceful location that is central as well, Rumah Kodak is the place to stay. Enjoyed my visit immensely.

I thoroughly enjoyed my repeat stay at Rumah Kodok and can highly recommend it to other travelers. The location is in the quiet artistic village of Penestanan, a 20-minute walk or 5-minute ride from congested central Ubud, and is where many long-term expats reside. The village is full of lovely restaurant, cafe, yoga, and massage options; and to me represents a more accurate representation of tranquil Balinese life than the nearby touristy central area of town. The villa itself is lovely, clean, modern, comfortable, and private; with a larger pool and richly appointed spacious outdoor living area with rice terrace views. The home is along a quiet local walkway, a 2-minute walk off the main road; and most of what one could want is reached via a peaceful stroll throughout the community. Their lovely Balinese manager, Wayan, lives next door and was always available to assist with any needed help or questions. Overall, I again found my experience at Rumah Kodok first-rate!

I returned to Rumah Kodok for a second stay before leaving Bali. Once again the place was great and Wayan the house manager again made me feel welcome. This time I had a chance to try the yoga studio just down the path. It too was wonderful with a beautiful elevated view and nice breezes along with a very good yoga teacher. I also tried a massage at Sedona spa, which was just a few minutes walk away- and again was very happy with the treatment. The location of Rumah Kodok is outstanding and the villa itself is terrific!

The villa was really nice and in a great location with the rice fields right out in front, past the pool. The house was close to a western-style grocery store (5 min walk) and a quick walk to several good restaraunts. Downtown Ubud was also just a few minutes by taxi but it would also be easily walkable. Wayan, the house manager was also really nice. I enjoyed my stay so much that I have planned to return for a few days before leaving Bali! I would highly recommend this place for people looking for a quiet getaway but conveniently located close to everything you need!

Rumah Kodok has so many good opinions that mine is you know..just another one. The place is located in a very nice place, among balinese villas and next to the rice field. Quiet, yet very close to the market (which is a blessing, believe me), transport, restaurants. It takes about 20min on foot to get to the center of Ubud. There is no AC in the house and you absolutely don't need it. The pool is great. The veranda is great. House is small, but nicely decorated. In the kitchen there is literally EVERYTHING you may need. The only little thing is the fact, that almost everyday there is somebody coming there, I mean the staff. To clean the house or to clean the pool or to clean the garden etc. They are all nice people, but if you seek for some privacy it may be a little bit annoying. In case you need airport transfer or a driver in Bali contact Blue, the driver that Brenda recommends. Contact with hosts was very good, you can see that they do their best to make your holiday special. Im really happy we spent some time at Rumah Kodok and I have that feeling that we'll be back one day;)

Our stay at Brenda and Jack's house was fantastic! The house was nice and fresh with a great terrace and pool overlooking the rice fields. The property is close to Ubud city's centre and also to great restaurants, spas and yoga places right at the doorstep. This is a cosy, convenient and comfortable stay in the middle of green Ubud!

I am a retired educator from Steamboat Springs, Colorado, USA. I like to travel, ski, hike, scuba dive, paint and do yoga. My husband and I have a lovely home in Bali which we rent out when we are in the US or traveling. We love the people and culture of Bali and after visiting here for several years, we decided to make it our second home.
