About this listing

This gorgeous private contemporary Lumbung sits on a large garden property with 2 other homes. It is available for short term rent, possibly as long as several months at a time. For 2 adults or a couple with infant baby only. Contact me for availability.

The space

The Lumbung, a building that was once so ubiquitous in Bali, is almost impossible to find these days in the modern world of Bali's cement box "villas". This home is a rare treat for anyone looking to experience a closer look at local life in Bali and to feel truly at home away from home. Emmerse yourself in the nature that surrounds my property. Guests enjoy a quiet and very private stay in a traditional Balinese farming village. You can watch the daily routines of the local farmers as they pass by, hear the neighbor's cow mooing, watch ducks grazing in the rice fields, and take long gorgeous walks into the serenity and emerald green magic of surrounding rice fields.

The 2 story thatched roof Ubud Lumbung sits on a large, very private, quiet, lush garden property with two other homes. The Lumbung offers hip design and lots of comfort. My Lumbung includes wireless internet, fully equipped kitchen: with oven, blender, toaster, juicer, and large fridge, a simply stylish outdoor bathroom with koi pond, bamboo flooring upstairs, and an amazing rice field view to the east and full moon rise, private garden view to the west, and woven bamboo walls which keep the house cool day and night.

The Contemporary Eco Bali-style Lumbung is located 10 minutes drive outside of Ubud so some form of transportation is essential. I recommend a motor scooter but car rentals are easy to find or you also have the option of hiring a car with driver.

The Munivara Ashram is just around the corner for afternoon yoga classes or kirtan in the evenings. There are now several warungs and restaurants within walking distance in the neighborhood; Labak Sari, Happy Warung, Mandiri Warung just across the street from Om Ham and nicer restaurants at Om Ham and Puri Sunia resort.

Our family keeps several animals; Shirley the goat, Vic and Bianca our 2 watchdogs, and Pepper the cat. They are all cared for by the staff but do roam freely throughout the property (Shirley is kept tied up at all times). If you don't like animals this is probably not the right place for you.

My lumbung is staffed with the family’s housekeeper who provides house cleaning and laundry services.

Interaction with guests

I am available via email if there are any issues my staff cannot address during your stay.

Other things to note

Keeping the driveway gate closed at all times is extremely important so villagers are not driving down my driveway and parking in front of the garage. Thanks for your consideration to this matter.

Thank you again Caroline, Kutut, Wayang and Nyoman. Your house is magnificent and the support and care wonderful. I had my own complications but none of you were phased and all very helpful. For anyone that is interested in staying here I would highly recommend it for people that would like a genuine, elegant and private experience and who likes animals too. I stayed in the studio last year and found that perfect also. This year my parents joined me for part of the stay as we stayed in the house which has plenty of air, space, light and room. It is set in gardens that are natural and well kept and there are beautiful views of rice fields right in front of you. You can spoil yourself in the open expansive bathroom. It also feels like a home as it has a warm and generous vibe. I did work here and the wifi was great. So if you are looking for somewhere to get away from the hustle and bustle and do your own thing it is perfect. If you want a quality, serene and natural stay and like being close to the environment and animals then don't hesitate on this one I think it is rare.

Caroline's place is truly a sanctuary and the perfect place. Upon my arrival I was greeted and welcomed by the people who work at the property and felt right at home from the beginning. The home was clean, cozy, quiet, and the greatest space I found while on my long stay in Bali. The quality of the WiFi connection was also excellent for those of you who make a living from working online as I do. Her pets she mentioned were sweet, friendly and a joy to see every day. If you feel called to this precious space gift yourself the opportunity to be in a truly wonderful Bali home. It is a short motorbike into the center of Ubud, and the drive is quite lovely! I will absolutely come back to Caroline's home on my next visit.

Caroline and her staff couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming throughout my stay. This is a lovely place to unwind, and relax, and is ideally located just a few minutes from the bustle of Ubud, surrounded by rice fields, coconut palms, and in the midst of Carolines' lush and varied garden. I would return in a heartbeat.

I have lived in Ubud, for over 28 years, working as an artist and designer. I designed, built, and furnished each of the homes on my large garden property. I enjoy sharing my Bali experience with anyone who is interested.
