About This Listing
A mere five minute walk to downtown Ubud or Juwuk Manis trek, the 'Nest' is a well appointed Balinese-style Villa with a large pool perched on top of a hill surrounded by tropical gardens. Sleeps up to six adults and perfect for families.
The Nest Ubud sleeps six comfortably. An ideal space for families. It has three bedrooms and spacious indoor and outdoor lounging areas. It also has a large swimming pool. The kitchen is generously appointed and equipped for home cooking and entertaining. There is a pool villa adjoining the pool, which sleeps two and has an ensuite bathroom. There is also an upstairs bedroom in the main house with a half bathtoom. The downstairs bathroon in the main house is accessible through the kitchen and/or second bedroom. It is a full bathroom with big tub and outdoor Balinese-style shower. The villa is nestled up on a hill and is extremely private. Great views of the surrounding jungle especially while chilling in the pool. Perfect for families or a group of friends. Parking is also available on site. We also have a baby cot (crib) for families traveling with infants.
The villa facilities are fully accessible to renters. No restrictions.
Interaction with Guests
Our family lives in Vientiane, Laos so guest interaction with us is limited. However, we have a staff on hand that will look after your needs during your stay at the Nest Ubud. And my father in law Mr. Karsana keeps a watchful eye to ensure guest satisfaction during their stay at the Nest.
Ubud is the cultural heart of Bali and and Jalan
Kajeng can be considered the heart of Ubud.
Known as “Artist Street’ or ‘Signature Street’, Jalan Kajeng Street is one of the most interesting and original Balinese streets you will find. Located on the north end of town, it runs uphill perpendicular from Jl. Raya Ubud. For people wishing to explore downtown Ubud on foot and at the same time live on a relatively quiet local street, you found it! The Pura Desa (village temple) is located at the bottom of the street and at the top end of the street is the amazing textile gallery ‘Threads of Life’. There are many places to eat on Jl. Kajeng as well as art shops and the Padma Bus office. Rice field treks are also at the doorstep of the Villa.
Everything that you possibly want to see is walking distance from the Villa. Downtown Ubud and the local Starbucks is 5 minutes walk in one direction. And in the other direction, within 5 minutes one can be on the well known (and very beautiful) Juwuk Manis rice field area. Quite literally, you never have to get in a car when you stay at the Nest, except maybe to go grocery shopping.
Other Things to Note
This one of the most well appointed villas in the neighbourhood just five minutes walk to downtown (Starbucks and the Ubud Palace). Baby crib and high chair available on request.
Treat the Nest as if it were you own. Conserve energy when you can. Recycle, reuse and reduce to ensure a sustainable household operation. Most importantly relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of this special place.
The Nest is actually better than it seems in the photos, it's spacious, cool and has numerous separate areas as well as large communal areas to share with others, the pool is cool and refreshing after a long days wandering.
The location is so close to Ubud centre (5-10 mins) but is in a quiet and peaceful area, the road (Jalan Kageng) leading to Ubud is great with a good spectrum of shops and also very good cafes.
If you head an the other direction on the road you're amongst rice paddies within 200 metres.
Mr Karsana (who met us on arrival) was extremely helpful, especially when our arranged transport to the airport didn't arrive and we needed some alternate transport in a hurry, we certainly would have struggled without his help.
The fish ponds were entertaining, we had a 1 year old with us and feeding the large Koi twice a day was a highlight for him.
Overall it was very hard to fault this villa and we would certainly stay there again if the opportunity arose.
The Nest is what I envisioned when I was planning our visit. Traditional construction with modern conveniences. Peter linked our family of six up with a taxi service that showed up on time and did not get lost. The house is within walking distance of shopping and a host of restaurants. A special treat is was Peter's father-in-law Yoman who acts as on site manager. He has a wealth of information about Bali. We would defiantly stay again if in Ubud.
Peter's place is an amazing paradise for our Ubud trip (We were 5 adults and 2 kids). Couldn't think of a better choice than that. Host Kasanna was super helpful and responsive. We had a great experience and highly recommend it.
The property is very well located in central ubud,
Our group of four adults and two toddlers had a wonderful time at the Nest. Peter made the experience easy by promptly responding to all our queries. The property is located on a lovely street with friendly locals. If you are in Ubud for relaxation and culinary experiences like us, the location is perfect. Plenty of casual dining options 'warungs' and fine dining restaurants are within walking distance. Spa and massage shops aplenty. Thanks Peter for letting us stay in your beautiful home. It was a little sanctuary and we will certainly stay again on our next annual trip to Ubud!
We had a wonderful 5 days at the Nest. Everything was perfect, including the location. Would definitely recommend the Nest.
The villa in Ubud was in a great location (a short walk to the market and restaurants) and certainly was very beautiful. Lovely gardens, coy fish and plenty of lush greenery, even a friendly neighbourhood cat which we loved. The downside: the villa and especially the pool villa had several large (over one foot long) lizards/geckos which made us nervous. We understand we are in a natural setting and small gekos are of no bother. However these ones were peeking their heads on the ceiling above where we slept and they left droppings on our bed and floor. We felt so uncomfortable we slept on the sofa which was not comfortable for 2 people. The solution would be a bed canopy to make you feel more secure. Peter (who we never met) sent in someone to remove one lizard but unfortunately there were more (which we mentioned but nothing was done). Also we only received one gate key which was inconvenient for a group of 6 - we would have liked to split up. Overall a very beautiful villa but the experience was dampened by the lizard situation.
