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.

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.
