A single bed in a private villa with Pool, AC and Wifi. French doors open to the Pool and Orchid gardens. Shared bathroom, kitchen and a large living areas. Staff that can make you breakfast each morning.
The main house has floor to ceiling sliding glass doors on the three exterior walls of the living room create indoor and outdoor living space with immediate access to the swimming pool. A lit stone walkway, small water garden, outdoor shower, and napping Gazebos with ceiling fans complete the garden setting. The kitchen is fully equipped and opens into a large dining area overlooking a water garden. The full size swimming pool, unusual for Ubud, has a deep end just below 6' and a shallow end with walking steps. Perfect for swimming a few laps or playing a game of water ball. There is a resting stage in the pool for sitting and enjoying a beverage or just relaxing.
Our design focus was to enjoy the light, water and sky of Bali. We think we have achieved this setting.
Completing the downstairs is a luxurious bathroom and air-conditioned bedroom with a single bed and pull out. French doors open onto a small courtyard.
Excellent location 20-30-minute walk to Ubud center and to grocery store. Private entrance with turn lock.
great place to stay! Scott is a great guy, helped with everything
Steve and his staff were extremely helpful. I had a wonderful, relaxed stay. Couldn't ask for more. Can't wait to come back again :) Tammie x
Loved staying here! Steve was uber cool, great to yarn with and very helpful. Definitely will see me next time!
Steve's place is a perfect landing spot to get you on your feet in Ubud. Not only is he friendly and helpful, he really knows Bali like a local. His place is in a great location, Penestanan, just outside of Ubud central, so its nice and quiet and a bit removed from the hubub of town. He can help with setting up a driver (Kadek, who is awesome and I'd highly recommend), getting a motorbike, recommending other great spots to explore on the island, as well as good eats in Ubud. I will definitely be looking Steve up again my next time in Ubud. Thanks for everything! -Mary
Steve was great in taking my booking as I'd had a few problems with my email account being hacked and a bike breaking down in the middle of nowhere and me not being able to mail him.
The house is lovely, in a great spot away from the hustle and bustle. His driver Kadek and he picked me up from Seminyak, Wayan cooked for me, Steve took me to the cremetation ceremony, and I got lots of great tips about where to go what to do. Kadek even took me to Amed which was the same as a single person getting a coach (you have to pay double if alone) and much more comfortable and i stopped along the way to take photos...the booking was like staying with a friend...
I would definitely book here again and can't recommend it enough. Thanks guys.
Stephen was a fabulous host! He's a lovely guy and went above and beyond for me throughout my stay. From offering me a glass of wine when I arrived late after a delayed flight to driving me across town to a variety of banks after I lost my bankcard. He's incredibly kind and generous and very easy to get on with.
The room is perfect for one person wanting to explore Ubud. It has a great view onto the garden and you go to sleep to the sounds of the wildlife which is perfect. There's loads of space and Wayan the housekeeper did a great job of keeping it tidy/fresh sheets etc.
The area is wonderful for getting away from it all. Intuitive Yoga is 2mins away and there are a couple of cafes/warung within walking distance (take a torch for walking back at night as the paths are narrow!). You can easily get to the town by taking a taxi from the bottom of the steps so you can be in the centre in about 15mins door to door. For me it was good to stay out a little as centre is a bit full on with all the mopeds etc. I was travelling alone and felt fine about going back up the steps/to the house after an evening out.
I highly recommend using Stephen's driver Kadek for the airport pick-up and also a trip out of Ubud. He took me to some wonderful places, was professional, on time and good company. He also arranged my ticket to go to Gili T.
All in all an excellent value stay with a wonderful host. Thanks Stephen! Will miss you.
Pleasant host and he can be funny. Location is very good quite but close to the action. Make sure you bring flashlight if you want to go out and come home at night. Not a fan of the shared bathroom but it got a nice pool thats perfect for an afternoon heat. WIFI is slow in the room but strong in the Gazebo. Will stay there again or at his house he is building right now :)
This is a long overdue review, but what a lovely quaint room, in a beautiful home, and a swimming pool to die for. I had an absolute ball with Steve. I can't thank him enough for his gracious hospitality, and our evening chats. Miss You!
Lovely bungalow with pool and butler (cooking breakfast, cleaning and shopping). Steve was VERY helpful in showing me around Ubud and giving me good tips on where to go etc. I feel like I made a friend.
I can't find any flaws for this place. The location's great. It's safe, it's private, it's quiet (except for the frogs, the roosters which are great), and it's still quite close to downtown (15 mins walking, 3 mins by scooter). If you're not too keen on walking (and hiking up and down THE big step of Campuhan), you need a scooter to get around. The yoga place is only 50 steps away, there are many great warungs around the block which Scott can direct you.
The house is just beautiful. It has a great design, it's bright, it's airy, it has a beautiful garden, great view, and the pool is just superb. A great place to relax and to recharge yourself.
A real treasure.
