About this listing
This gorgeous private contemporary Lumbung sits on a large garden property with 2 other homes. It is available for shorter term rent, possibly as long as several months at a time. Contact me for availability.
I offer free airport pick up for a stay of 2 weeks or longer. The Munivara Ashram with daily yoga classes and evening kirtan is just around the corner.
Our family keeps several animals; Shirley the goat, Vic and Biance our 2 watchdogs, Dude, Dusty, and Pepper, the most loveable cats. 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.
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. Emerse 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. The home includes wireless internet, fully equipped kitchen: with oven, blender, toaster, juicer, and large refrig, a simply stylish outdoor bathroom with koi pond, bamboo flooring upstairs, 32" flat screen tv with dvd player and lots of movies, 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 to get to and from Ubud 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. Puri Sunia Resort's Abangan restaurant is just next door along with the very simple Balinese owned Happy Warung just down the street for those of you who don't want to think about cooking while on holiday.
My lumbung is staffed with the family’s housekeeper who provides house cleaning services.
As mentioned in the description, this is my private home but I travel frequently so am willing to rent it to the right person. Certain personal belongings are packed away and stored during a rental period but out of your way as I have no other storage place. I enjoy sharing my 28yrs of experience living full time in Bali with people. If you are looking for a very comfortable and special home away from home experience and would be respectful of my property, staff, pets, and belongings do contact me and we can discuss.
