About this listing

Experience authentic, Balinese life. The Payogan Homestay Bungalow is located within our traditional, Balinese family compound, only 2 kilometers north of Ubud. Newly constructed, this one bedroom house is cool and airy, built in the traditional Balinese style. Situated towards the back of the compound, it has it’s own fenced and landscaped yard and an expansive porch from which to sit peacefully and relax, enjoying the view. The Bungalow offers privacy and space yet you will still wake up to the traditional sounds of Bali and experience the essence of staying in a Balinese village.

The Bungalow includes a full kitchen that opens up to a beautiful and unique outdoor platform overlooking the garden, from which to dine or practice yoga. The essence of this home within our compound is that it is not only private, it is also customizable for your needs. There is a second room separate from the cool and shady bedroom that can serve as an office or indoor sitting room, however you please. Additionally, the home is well equipped with modern amenities for a comfortable and well connected stay with free wifi, and brand new air conditioning, as well as plenty of electrical outlets for all of your devices. There is a beautiful bathroom with a lovely tiled floor, stone carved sink, soaking tub and plenty of hot and cold water and throughout the Bungalow are traditional artistry and antique Balinese wood furnishings, reflecting the intrinsic connection to spirituality and the environment, an inherent part of Balinese life. Every detail of the bungalow seeks to promote comfort, peace and restoration.

Living in a Balinese family compound means that you will have many friendly neighbors. The compound is home to a large extended family, all of whom are very involved in traditional Balinese life, and committed to our village ceremonies, many of which take place in our family temple. We welcome you to participate if you choose. In fact, we encourage our guests to join us to get the true feeling of Balinese culture. We can always help you through the experience and provide the traditional wear.

As a licensed tour guide by profession, I can provide custom guided tours according to your interests and needs. We also provide airport transfer and local transportation at a very reasonable rate - we are only a call away.

Other highlights: - Longer stays enjoy a significantly reduced room rate. - Breakfast and/or other meals can be provided on request for minimal cost. - We can arrange laundry pick-up and delivery at very reasonable rates.

If there is anything else you need, just let us know. We want your stay with our family to be memorable.

Ketut is a great guy, he is always there if you need something. His guests comfort is his top priority. Oh and the pancakes for breakfast are to die for, so make sure to try them. Overall we enjoyed our stay with Ketut.

Ketut is the most wonderful host. Kind, warm hearted, attentive, caring... he really made me feel like I was part of the family. Traveling alone to a place where I knew no one, it was important for me to be welcomed into a home-like atmosphere to establish a ground base from which I could go out and explore/make friends. Ketut's homestay was exactly that. He sent a family member to pick me up from the airport, and from the moment I landed in Bali, I felt safe, welcomed, and taken care of. Ketut's family compound is gorgeous, and each one of his guest villas provides something unique... and all are beautiful. The location is a 10 minute scooter ride from Ubud center, but I found this to be great, and it always felt like coming home to my local spot after a long day out in the town. Oh, and, the banana pancakes are incredible, as I'm sure you already have read many times. I ate them pretty much every morning for 2 weeks, and never tired of them. I highly recommend staying with Ketut and his family. It will be the perfect welcoming to Bali, from the warm staff he has on hand, to the banana pancakes, to the comfortable and beautiful villas, you really can't do better than this if it's your first time visiting Bali. Thank you, Ketut, for showing me the kindness and goodness of the Balinese. It is an experience I will always cherish.

The best-kept secret of Ubud. Forget the resorts, hotels, villas. If you want the authentic experience, stay with Ketut in his actual Balinese family compound 5 minutes outside Ubud. You'll have your own private house totally to yourself, and I challenge you to find a better breakfast anywhere in Bali. Believe the hype! The pancakes are actually that good.

Wonderful home stay in Ubud! Ketut and his family were extremely helpful. The house was like on the pictures, surrounded by trees and all kind of animals. The breakfast was very delicious as well. For everyone who wants to do some online work from the apartment, check out a sim card with 3G as the wifi is not too fast. Thanks a lot, want to come back soon.

Ketut and his family were incredibly friendly and nice from the first moment we moved into their peaceful area. The studio is very clean and you can find anything you need to make yourself feel like you are home. Ketut has a motorbike for rent so it was very easy for me to move around. I love Ubud and will definitely come back to stay at Ketut's place sometimes in the future.

Payogan Homestay was exactly as advertised - a delightful and relaxing opportunity to live in a fascinating and dynamic family compound on the north side of Ubud. I stayed here three weeks, enjoying the town and also working from my little studio at the homestay. The atmosphere was always relaxed and welcoming. Ketut's family took care of me well, cleaning my room every day or two, providing me with a water bottle and maps, and even renting me a scooter at a low price for getting around Ubud. I love the location in Payogan, a small village just outside of the Ubud hubbub but only a 10-12 minute scooter ride down to Yoga Barn. Here you'll really get a sense of what life is like for Ubud's families. Ketut is funny, helpful and concerned. And if I wanted my privacy, he gave me plenty of space. I also enjoyed being able to jog right out the front door and be just a mile away from Campuhan Ridge, one of the nicest green spaces in all of Ubud. I plan to return to Ubud this spring and I definitely hope to stay here again.

I had an awesome time at Ketut's family compound! It's a special type of luxury to have a very local and personalized experience while also enjoying a beautiful private space for yourself. The room had a special loft-like design being quite spacious with open views into nature. Ketut's presence, along with the rest of his family really added to the experience. Such warm, respectful and reliably helpful people. It was a privilege to be part of the family!
