Hip Penestanan area. SPECIAL PRICES for a few months until next door construction is done. The villa is 2-story, with A/C in upstairs bedroom. Relax on the large balcony and enjoy a fresh breakfast each morning. Villa is located in a small Balinese family compound, but quiet and private. No direct car access, so we STRONGLY advise using our recommended drivers who know our location and will carry your bags the 5-minute walk. A lovely shared pool is located AT OUR NEW FLORA VILLA--4 MINS. AWAY.
To enter the house you walk through a Traditional compound with a super friendly golden retriever, Milo. This makes the house very safe and provides a taste of Balinese compound life. The house is two-story and larger than most in Penestanan (120 m square; 1200 square ft). I am an architectural designer and have attended to many small details that make the space super comfortable for lounging. The downstairs is loft-like with (10ft/3+ meter high ceilings), an open kitchen and a natural outdoor stone and wood bathroom. Large sliding glass doors easily open the living space to the lush outdoors. The master bedroom is air-conditioned, spacious and connects to a large balcony with a 9ft. (3 meter) long daybed (very romantic). We have also recently added a shared swimming pool AT OUR FLORA VILLA COMPLEX 4 MINUTES AWAY BY FOOT for the use of our guests. SEE THE PHOTOS.
We can arrange for a driver to pick you up at the airport. We encourage you to take advantage of this service because our drivers – Ketut, Komang and Allo – know the way to our houses well and will carry your bags to the house. Other drivers will not. The cost for airport pick up and transport to the villa is approximately $350,000 IDR, which can be paid directly to the driver.
Made and Made will make you a breakfast of fruit, yogurt and eggs (if desired). Jampi, my masseur, comes for $250,000 IDR per hour to the house or walk to the nearby Cantika or Lala Lili Spas. Fabulous world class fusion dining is within walking distance and the center of Ubud is about a 20 minute leisurely walk. Bring your laptop and access our high speed wifi. Enjoy!
I'll leave you my list of my spots and favorite restaurants at the moment. I am putting together some sample itineraries for 3 day stays, 5 day stays and 7 day stays with side notes for designers, the sporty, yoginis, the spiritually oriented. I know how confusing it can be to arrive and be faced with so many choices. After 10 years in Ubud and my design experience, I have narrowed down the choices to the best of the best. :) Allo or Made (another one) can take you there!
We are also happy to organize a trip to healers in Ubud and the surrounding areas as well as to special ceremonies at the Water Temple for the Full Moon. And we have an excellent friend who can organize a juice fast or a healthy eating experience, complete with a raw cooking class. In fact, she can be hired to work up a private spa experience for you... complete with health rice paddy walks, private yoga...
We provide our guests with the use of a Bali phone with Sri's number and mine, programmed into it.
Interaction with guests
I will be by once during your stay and can always be contacted by phone or email.
Other things to note
If you have kids, there is a pond in the back and the staircase railing is open and not kid-proof (see photo #6)... but having said that, many families absolutely love staying at our house. It's Bali... imperfect and delightful .
Our Cool House is not child-proofed. We want to highlight to parents with young toddlers the following two areas: 1) the stairs up to the 2nd floor have an open railing, and 2) there is a unfenced fish pond outside the villa towards the back of the property. That said, we have had many families with children enjoy staying in our villa.
