Interaction with Guests
I live downstairs with my two Bali cats , one sociable and responsive to visitors and one timid and hardly seen when other people are here.
Airport pickup and drop off can be arranged and I have contacts with massage and beauty therapists and a renowned Balinese healer/shaman and can help you arrange shopping or sightseeing with my local drivers.
This is an idyllic corner of paradise for serious rest and relaxation and a wonderful base to explore the island.
About the Host, Ruth
I’m a permanent resident originally from Australia (actually born in England but lived most of my life in Aus) with a love of Bali, its people and its culture. I love good food and In Sydney some years ago I had a cafe.
I enjoy having guests in my home and helping them get the most out of their stay, but I also respect people's privacy.
I’m into yoga and meditation and being healthy (as much as I can with such a love of food) . I’m passionate about colour and design, love travel, love sharing the things I know about and work towards balance in my life.
Here I am fascinated by the culture - continually learning more about the ceremonies, special occasions, and temple decorations. I love the gentleness of the Balinese people and how they are always smiling and willing to talk and help people. I am also grateful for the peace and tranquility living here offers - it really is a magical place.
