About this listing
Villa Manis, Taman Kaja, Ubud, Bali
This quaint, Colonial inspired, fully furnished, designer decorated, one bedroom villa is only a 10 minute walk from the Royal Palace of Ubud and the famous Ubud tourist market. This beautiful villa is ideal for a couple on holiday or a single person on retreat. Conveniently located to great shopping and fabulous restaurants, the villa is only minutes away from Central Ubud. With rice paddy and jungle views, an enclosed garden and shared saltwater pool, the villa is a cozy and comfortable exotic home away from home.
For a different type of holiday away from the big hotels, in a beautiful Balinese village, stay in your own place with a complete kitchen and friendly Balinese staff to take care of you. Take walks through the rice paddies down to town only minutes away.
We can also help arrange additional specialty guided tours with a neighbor driver to visit the local healers and spiritual teachers. The villa is also very close to all types of yoga classes and retreats, Tai Chi, Chi Kung classes and/or Ubud Fitness Gym, as well as some incredible spa experiences. We can even arrange for in house massages by some of the best massage therapists in Ubud as well as hair treatments, foot reflexology, manicures, pedicures, and facials.
The living room and side verandahs overlook the pool with views of the rice paddies, tropical garden and jungle river gorge. Enjoy your breakfast served on the outdoor verandah.
Our staff, Made, Wayan and Dewa will help make your holiday special and relaxing. They will clean the house each day, and also can prepare your breakfast for an additional cost of rp50,000 per person per day. If you don't feel like going out to the restaurants, they will be happy to cook for you at home for an additional cost. Many of the local restaurants also have home delivery. Made is a fabulous cook giving you a traditional Balinese home cooking experience. Wayan will also shop for you at the organic vegetable market and local supermarket to supply the house with your requested foods and drink.
The king size teak Colonial 4 poster bed is very comfortable with lots of cushy pillows, and the ensuite bathroom has a bathtub and open garden shower. Fall asleep to the sound of crickets and frogs, and from your bedroom verandah watch the working ducks and flying cranes in the rice fields, and observe the Balinese children flying their kites.
For an additional charge we can arrange for a car and driver to take you touring or to pick you up at the airport and deliver you to the door. Just give us your details.
I have lived in Bali for 22 years and have tons of experience, contacts and ideas for traveling in Bali and around Asia. So, I can also help to arrange any day trips around Bali to help make your holiday more efficient and fun.
Once again we have had an enjoyable time staying at Villa Manis. Wayan does a great job careing for the villa in an unobtrusive manner, yet always being available to assist.
Thanks again Wayan and Mary for making our stay so enjoyable.
Villa Manis is just the most incredible accommodation you could hope to find in Ubud. The host Wayan is the loveliest and most helpful person we had the pleasure of meeting on our two week trip through Bali. Aside from the beautiful house, meeting her was the best thing about our stay there.
The villa was always clean; it is very cozy- we particularly enjoyed opening all the doors and shutters, letting in the natural light and breeze, and reading on the Balinese day bed (our favourite spot). The walk into central Ubud down Jalan Sri Wedari only takes about 10 minutes and has some of the best restaurants in Ubud- absolute must trys are Seniman Coffee Studios and Hujan.
Be sure to meet Made the friendly neighbour and ask him to take you around Bali. Taxi drivers can be unfriendly and pushy but Made was the exact opposite, he's a real charm.
Mary´s villa is simply fantastic. Wayan and villa´s staff are very kind and always available for helping in everything we needed. The villa is very well located and from a walking distance from Ubud´s main street, where you will find nice places to visit, like local art galleries, shops, the local market and good restaurants and cafes to enjoy during your stay. There is a short footpath from the road to the villa, across the rice field that makes you always remember that you are in a really traditional Bali atmosphere. We are travelling with our baby and his stroller and had no problem at all in taking it everywhere we went. Thanks Mary, Wayan and the staff for this amazing time in Ubud. We will definitely stay with you next time we visit Ubud! Joana, Joaquim and Jaime
Mary and Wayan were excellent hosts and provided us with a great balance between privacy and attentiveness. Whenever we needed anything they were around to help and always super friendly. The property is just as advertised in the photos and a great home base for exploring Ubud.
Villa Manis is a truely delightful place to stay. It's location provides easy access to the heart of Ubud, while being quiet and peaceful.
Manis is one of the best maintained and cleanest villas I have stayed in which is a credit to the Wayan and Mary.
I'll be back.
My husband and I truly enjoyed our staying in the villa Manis. Marry was an wonderful hostess and gave a lot of help and information. The house is very clean and well maintained. And I loved the way Marry decorated the house in colonial fashion. oh, I shouldn't forget to mention about Wayan and Made, the ladies who clean the house and make breakfast. They were really nice and friendly. I would definitely come back to Villa Manis and recommend this place to friends!
First thing that I would like to say here is...I wish I could stay longer.
The place is clean, beautiful and very well taken care of. Mary and her employee are great and warm and they always makes you feel like family for staying there.
The size of the villa, the area was just perfect for our trip. There's a feeling that makes you want to comeback right after you leave. Thanks again for everything Mary:)
