About this listing
A spacious 1-br on the Tjampuan Ridge- beautiful garden, great views, nice open air bathroom w/unlimited hot water, bright & clean interior, equipped kitchen & quiet neighborhood. Fiber optic, fast internet 8mbps+/ beautiful terrace and more!
This is one of four properties we rent in the neighborhood, please see our other available listings as well!
All are very sweet spaces on the Champuan Ridge above Ubud in the rice fields. The air and temperatures up here are about 8 degrees (F) cooler than town and offer refreshing breezes often.
This house is a two story/ two unit villa and is bright, airy and cooler than every other village in Ubud because of the breeze from the east.
About 15 minutes from the center of Ubud by motorbike our home is a very lovely space in quiet Bangkiang Sidem. Windows around the entire home offer bright days and a very pleasant breezy feel. The gardens are pristine (dry during dry season) with a lawn large enough to do yoga (for two); coconut and banana trees decorate the corner of the garden, and beyond the low wall and Balinese altar is an great view of the rice fields. We have done our best to show this in photographs, but it's even better in person!
The bed is the most comfortable we have found so far in Bali, a king size mattress with a pillow top and a view into the garden - sleeping here is a joy.
Fiber optic, fast/reliable internet/Wifi is included (being a new service area the connection here is exceptional, unlike much of Ubud). DVD player, LCD TV, Ipod/MP3 player are included. Towels and sheets changed weekly, maid service available at extra rate.
Interaction with Guests
There are daily blessings by the family who owns the house - a lovely display of Balinese culture with flowers and incense at the door step. Other than that the sheet/towel change is the only interaction you'll encounter.
A quiet brick road rolls through the neighborhood and just nearby is Tripadvisor's #1 choice for Best Spa in Ubud. We can vouche that the treatments there are amazing!
The village is an artist community where local painters offer their artwork to tourists arriving at the top of Ubud's most famous walk.. The walk to town is very nice as the path is a shortcut straight down the undeveloped canyon. A beautiful stroll and highlight of the area. By car or bike it is less than 15 minutes to town via a nice ride through the canyon.
Parking for car or motorbike is available on property.

Just enjoy and have a wonderful time!
This accomodation is in the most amazing part of Bali. So close to Ubud city Centre, connected by a magical walk. The people here make the experience even better. Amazing!
The house is wonderful, very clean and incredibly comfortable. You won't regret staying here - it's so serene and quiet compared to central Ubud, and so close by! We'll definitely come back!
A wonderful stay and great hosts - thankyou Wayan and Lucas. On the famous Campuhan Ridge walk this is a simple comfortable villa well cared for by Wayan and his wife Made.
It is a pleasant walk down to the Campuhan bridge but a motor scooter made the trip to the Bintang Supermarket and into Monkey Forest Road quick and convenient. If you are not up for a bike consider renting a car or better yet simply ask Wayan about a driver. Either way the villa in rice fields is an excellent base for exploring Ubud and the many wonderful northern parts of Bali.
So much better than bustle of central Ubud the villa has beautiful ride fields and the real Bali right on your doorstep.
Overall, we had a good time in this holiday villa. Beside the description on the list, I'd like to point out a few points:
We kept one window open and the balcony door a tiny gap the first night as it's very humid. We got $300 dollar stolen!!! Shock! Very experienced thief, left the wallet and iPad, only took the money. The good side is as far as you lock all the doors and windows, especailly at night, you should be fine.
It's right on the most beautiful walk track. If you like walking a lot, this is the place for you. It's 2km to main road, another 500m or so to the centre of Ubud. So it's about 40 mins walk one way. Bike is impossible, because of lots of ups and downs and steps. Motorbike is OK via the back road to the town. Again, very hilly, and sharp turns. Only recommend experienced rider.
3. Water pump and hot water system
The water pump is right outside the shower place, and it makes noticeable noise. Most of the time, it's OK. But if the guests live upstairs decide to have shower at the midnight, you will very likely be waken up.
Hot water system doesn't work sometimes, but Wayan will come and fix it quickly. It's easy to fix, but it may happen again. According to Wayan, once a week on average.
4. Ants and mosquitos
Mosquitos are everywhere in Bali. The villa has mozi repellent provided, which is handy. But this villa has a lot of ants. We found them on the bed even. If you would like to cook in the villa, it can be annoying.
5. Host and co-host
Host is a very friendly Bali native man, although he can only speak limited (website hidden)-host Lucas is very helpful. He arranged a driver to pick us up from the airport. No panic.
Hope this commence is helpful
Thank you for your visit Danxi! Unfortunately I have to strongly disagree with the idea that a thief came into the house, unzipped the wallet, took money, LEFT the wallet AND ipad next to it and left the house. I presume money was lost elsewhere... But I smile at the great imagination and am still sorry for your loss. This village has never had a break in and I think we can safely maintain that reputation. --- Water heater issue resolved.
All the good things said in other reviews about this place are true.
I had a great stay and both Wayan and Lucas where very communicative and helpful. Not that you need much help here because the place and surroundings speaks for themselves.
I was I could stay here some moths :) I'm sure I will be back!
Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre séjour à Ubud et ce grâce à la maison de Wayan. Celle-ci est propre, calme et à quelques mètres du Karsa Spa. Tous les matins nous prenions notre petit déjeuner là-ba. La maison de Wayan est située au bout du Campuhan Ridge walk. Une promenade super agréable. En face de la maison se trouve le peintre Wayan Rana. Il est adorable et ses peintures sont très belles. Juste un bémol : il n'y a pas de vue directe de la maison sur les rizières.
Stayed for 5 nights and the house is located among the paddy fields where it provides tranquil and quiet environment. The house is clean and cosy. Do take note that it's extremely dark at night, you probably won't want to take a stroll! The location is rather secluded.. I'd suggest to you to rent scooter to travel ard or if you're willing to walk 2km, you'll reach the Ubud Centre where they are more places to eat and shop ard.
Karsa Spa is our fav spot, its only 10m away from our house and we'll always drop by for lunch/dinner/massage if we're lazy to go out. Do rmb to make early bookings if you want to do massage cos they're v popular and usually fully booked for the next 3 days.
Thank you Wayan for being a hospitable host! He's very responsive to my queries and I do not lack anything during my stay. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a countryside stay or retreat.

About the Host, Wayan
I have 8 one bedroom houses near each other in the rice fields above Ubud. Great for a family gathering where everyone has their own space or available for booking house individually. Let me know if you have anything to ask!
