About This Listing
This bungalow style studio is located in lush green landscaped surrounds in authentic Ubudian rice field neighbourhood. Please note the photos listed have been taken and verified by airbnb.
The studio is located on the sought after Penestan area, only a 5 minute ride from the hustle & bustle of down town Ubud. There are around a dozen charming little healthy food restaurants (Indonesian, Japanese, Vegetarian Organic/Raw, Indian, bakeries) within a few blocks from here.
This studio has one huge bedroom with separate kitchen, bathroom and 3 relaxation areas. There are 5 one bedroom houses in the private complex available for rental - all with their unique design and décor. And all share the newly built pool, gardens (full of coconut and mango trees) and outdoor relaxation areas, including a lovely, newly built pool. All 5 studio in the complex have 1 large bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1 kitchen and a balcony relaxation area. One of the houses also caters for a child with an additional single bed.
Pakir, a local born and bred Ubudian is the site manager and owner of the complex. He can connect you with healers, yoga, scooter hire, local attractions and tours, all the best the restaurants or places to drink - or just simply his warm and quirky energy. Everybody loves Pakir - literally everybody. I am on site from time to time - however I usually live 2 hours south by the beach in The Bukit. Most of the 'Other reviews' you see below are for the beach property where I live:

If you looking for the property most the reviews are written about where I live; my nature reserve in the south of Bali by the ocean, the link is here:
Smoking outside only.
Pakir lives in one of the houses on site, and although he is approachable, he has a private life too and is not available 24 hours. So it is a condition of booking that all guests book a private transfer with either myself or Pakir prior to their arrival. Our drivers know Pakir and his location well, and will contact him to ensure he is available for a smooth check in.
I stayed one month in the upstairs studio overlooking the pool. It is spacious & clean, the bed is huge & super comfy. The location was perfect for me, walking distance from good places to eat but away from the centre of Ubud & all the traffic. It is not set in the middle of the rice fields but the views are lovely & it is a peaceful place to stay. I enjoyed many afternoons sitting on the daybed watching the kites in the distance.
Raquel was really helpful & responded to my many questions before & after booking. Same goes for Pakir, who lives on site, he was round & about if needed. The atmosphere is laid back & welcoming.
Wifi connection was fast & reliable which was another bonus.

About the Host, Raquel
Writer, nature loving, people ponderer. I live on an amazing eco property in Bali's far south with my Balinese family. We're creating a tropical permaculture farm here. These days I spend most of my spare time planting seeds - both literally and metaphorically - with my Balinese partner Tommy, who grew up in nearby Uluwatu. I bought a motorcycle and named her Phylis. She gets a lot of attention around The Bukit. And rightly so - she's pretty hot.
I have listed three properties on Air BnB.
1. The place where I live - Beachside Permaculture farm & villa
2. My friend Pakir's family compound of 5 self contained studios in Ubud.
3. My Balinese family's beach shack - a guest house directly on the beach.
