My house is a 20 minute walk through this safe quiet road (or 5-10 minute bike ride) away from Ubud's dining, shopping, etc. Note that walking involves going through the Ubud Monkey Forest which is safe but not well lit at night so you need a flashlight/torch if walking (shhhh...the monkeys are sleeping at night :-)). From my house to Yoga Barn is an 8 minute bike ride there for me and it is roughly 1 km. (6/10 of a mile) between the epicenter of central Ubud to my house.
Interaction with guests
I live at woodcarver village at kemenuh with my families.
Other things to note
Bali VISA ON ARRIVAL: Effective July 3, 2014 fee increase from $25 USD to $35 USD. If you are coming to Bali as a visitor to Bali for less than 30 days (and don't already have a visa for Indonesia in your passport obtaineed from your home country), you are required to buy one on arrival before getting into the Passport Control queue. FOOD: There are no meals included in this price, but with one day notice Luhnik (housekeeper) can make breakfast at the villa e.g. fresh squeezed juice, coffee/tea and banana crepes or spring roll 45,000 Rp. She can cook lunch or dinner my favorite is her yellow coconut chicken with vegetable curry 60,000 Rp. or with tempe/tofu 45,000 Rp. FOOD: FYI, I live in Seattle and can eat much healthier and more affordably in Ubud/Nyuh Kuning where all ingredients are locally-sourced. Down the street is Warung Coconut (cheap/excellent/new/special health drinks using raw chocolat and turmeric/bubble (tapioca) drinks), DeWarung (local) or for an awesome Japanese food experience that is real Japanese with no sushi but with Soba/Udon (I ate here for the first time yesterday and found out it was one of the first restaurants in Ubud always owned by japanese chef, the food and kitchen are super clean, the menu is true Japanese and the country of origin for each item is on the menu, e.g. fixed price lunch for terriayi chicken with rice, miso and mixed vegetables was 50,000 Rp ($4.25) Wow! It's called Kagemusha and is about 8 minute walk from the house. In Ubud at several places expat organic/hippie places like Kafe at the Yoga Barn, Clear cafe, Down To Earth or Bali Buddha for less than $5. There are many places to eat in Ubud, i tend to favorite ones that offer local, organic and healthy choices but not all visitors like that style. Also on Jalan Nyuh Kuning there is a japanese-owned buffet to have nasi campur called Warung Sopa where you can select local organic red rice and pick 5 buffet items like curried banana flower, fern tips, tofu, beet salad, bittermelon, sweet tempe. Down to Earth in Ubud is all vegetarian and super healthy/fresh. The Ubud working coop center with hyper fast email for expats who work in ubud called Hubud near the monkey forest also has a salad bar and vegan food. Healthy comfort food can be found at Little K cafe inside the Yoga Barn or Kafe or Clear Cafe or Bali Buddha. Taco Casa has awesome tex mex food and is one of the top five local restaurants in Ubud. Jalan Monkey forest road has the majority of tourist/western food choices. Higher end is Mozaic...for a 6 course meal with the best service in bali is $75 per person where the chef trained at the French Laundry in Napa Valley, CA and it's awesome. Indonesian/western blend food at Janet deNeff's Casa Luna is a nice place as is Terrazzo for Italian. There is an awesome new Indian restaurant a few doors down from the main Palace. There are more touristy foods with western food like Nomads or for pretty good and definitely reasonably priced French food i like Cafe Des Artistes
House Rules Check in after 2pm but before 10 pm on the day of arrival and check out is by noon. The house is normally fully booked. The housekeeper needs the full 2 hours between guests to prepare the house. If you would like to request a late check out contact me several days in advance and i will let you know if it is possible based on if another guest is arriving on your check out day. Perhaps you could leave your luggage at the house if no guests are arriving on your departure day if you are doing a tour. Otherwise, if you are not checked out by 1 p.m. a fee of one night's stay will be charged. If leaving before 9 am, please tell Jaya, the housekeeper, the day before to arrange how to return the key to formally check you out. Please don't take the sheets they are custom-made hotel quality and cost $150 each, don't take the towels or soap (hard to believe I have to mention this but it's common that guests have taken them). If you spill soft drinks, red wine, cranberry juice or tomato sauce on the terrazzo floor please clean it up immediately and tell Jaya because other guests have not and the entire floor in the house has needed to be refinished.
No smoking. No sub leasing allowed. We know the price could be higher but we want it to remain affordable for people who appreciate the design and are eco-conscious.
POWER CUTS / WATER CUTS Occasionally, there are power and/or water cuts. We apologize for any inconvenience, this is due to the shortage of electricity/water in the island. It's only happened once at my house.
IDENTITY DOCUMENTS: Please give the staff a Photocopy of your passport (or the house keeper) can make one for you if you give her 20,000 Rp ($1.50). We are required to give a photocopy of your Passport to our local Indonesian police.
DISCLAIMER : Due to the increase of tourism on the island we are sorry to not be able to guarantee complete silence; village life is busy. Noises from ceremonies, roosters, dogs barking, motorbikes are possible and unpredictable and to be expected in Bali outside of a Hyatt or Four Seasons resort property this cannot constitute a valid reason for canceling.
DOs and DON'Ts (here): Alcohol is ok but unless you want to end your life in an Indonesian jail, don't be silly and bring drugs. No crazy parties - but then you wouldn't be choosing Ubud if that's what you are after. As in any developing country or big city in the world it's always best to keep your valuables, cash, cameras, laptops, etc. on your person at all times. The small wooden joglo bedroom at my house has the most secure western style lock on the front door possible, but keep all valuable possessions with you at all times.
DOs and DON'Ts (temples):If you plan on going to a temple, make sure you bring (or borrow) a sarong and sash, and - if you are a woman - a blouse that at least covers your arms to the elbow. In some temples this is not compulsory, but in all cases, it will show your respect for our local Hindu people's values and beliefs.
Cancel up to 7 days before your trip and get a 50% refund plus service fees back.

Hi, I'm Wayan Widnyana. I live in Kemenuh in East Ubud, with my family of wood carvers.
One interesting thing about me is that I worked for 8 years in the US as Japanese Chef! I am happy to be back with my family in Bali and with my beautiful new bride.
I have several different types of accommodation available, from private, luxury villas to rooms in my own home where you can experience the authentic Balinese way of life. Come learn wood carving and Balinese cooking with my family and help prepare for a Saraswati or Galungan ceremony with us. Or take a bicycle ride around our village to see the beautiful rice paddies and Petanu river. Definitely, you will leave with many cherished memories and new friends!
Salamat Datang de Bali!
