Other Things to Note
This is a place and space for people who appreciates nature life. Its build with only natural materials and in such style that you get the feel of living with nature
I have previously let people view the house before committing to stay, however, people staying in the house found it quite disrupting, so I've decided not to give that option anymore, to respect the privacy and wishes of the people I'm hosting. Thank you for your understanding.
Prachtige omgeving van reisvelden oversteeg mijn verwachting. Het ontwerp van de huisjes is schitterend. Een badkamer met waterval en beekje met vissen, loopbruggetje naar het aangrenzend slaapkamertje, annex meditatie / massageruimte erg leuk. Het geluid van de waterval went gelukkig.
Ik vond de locatiemanager wat lastig te bereiken, alleen per telefoon. Dan kwam hij op verzoek wel langs, maar we werden voor vragen vooral doorverwezen naar de staf in de ochtend, terwijl deze mensen vaak weer alles via de manager moesten regelen. Dus alles kan geregeld worden, maar er is geen receptiedesk.
We hadden wat moeite met de blaffende honden in de aangrenzende (leuke) dorpsstraat, ondanks veel geruststellende verhalen dat de honden niets doen. Het blijft toch intimiderend, vooral voor een 3-jaar oud kind.
Je hebt wel een brommer of fiets nodig als je in de buurt wat wil gaan eten. Het eerste stuk weg richting Ubud is in het donker een beetje eng om te lopen (opnieuw vooral met een kind van 3).
Oplossing wordt geboden door het aangrenzende resort met restaurant of een buurvrouw die bij je thuis komt koken.
Hoewel een perfecte tuin en zwembad, vond ik de omgeving minder geschikt voor een klein kind. De meeste andere bewoners, gasten waren wat ouder of vooral daar voor meditatie en yoga, zo leek het.
This is part of a complex called T-House Kaja, a lovely group of rental houses with shared pool backing on to rice fields. It's halfway between a hotel and a private rental, with nice people who clean and cook breakfast every day. Only downside for us was that the wifi is also shared and didn't work half the time.
The outdoor kitchen and bathroom are adorable. The upstairs bedroom is open to the outdoors, so you can fall asleep to temple music, but bring earplugs for the 4am roosters! The downstairs bedroom has a water fountain to block out neighbors' music etc. We had plenty of room for 3 adults.
From here down: walking. Nobody walks in Bali, but we did.
We didn't find much near T-House, except an eccentric vegetarian buffet (walk north then east, just across Pengosekan/Lodtunduh), a coffee "farm" (walk south to the end, then east across Lodtunduh) and tiny corner stores across the street. We did our main grocery shopping at the Coco supermarket beside Dirty Duck (eat at Tropical View instead). Watch out for monkey bag thieves if you take your groceries through the monkey forest!
We didn't fancy driving scooters (Ubud has typical SE-asian traffic chaos) so we walked along peaceful rice field paths into town in 1-2 hours. The easiest path is out the gates, north to the end of the street, then follow the concrete waterway as it winds north through the fields. When you get to Kuning road you can either cross and walk north through another set of muddier snake-filled fields where you'll come out via the Tropical View Cafe onto Wenara Wana road, or walk west along busy Kuning then turn north at the frog statues and stroll up Gading to the monkey forest. There's a nice Japanese restaurant called Kagemusha just past the frog statues on Kuning.
Another path: go out the back by the pool then turn north at the rice temple. Follow that waterway to Kuning road.
Yet another path: Go out back by the pool, turn west just after the rice temple and head for the ravine where you can cross on a big log. Keep going west until you reach a wide concrete path, then turn north. You'll come out through a cultural center to Kuning road. There's also a sturdier bridge over the ravine somewhere south of the log but both are hard to find coming home from the other direction. Walk to town + taxi back is a good combo.
My favorite walk was north of town, best done on a weekday to avoid other tourists. From Raya Ubud turn north at Cafe Lotus onto Kajeng (paved with hand-drawn tiles). It will take you up to an area of beautiful rice fields with wide walking paths and small restaurants. You can keep heading north until the road becomes a forested dirt path beside a deep ravine, then cross a little metal bridge west to Sari Organic.
Pernilla's house is very cute, set in a nice rainforest. All houses are quite private and separated from each other by dense bushes and trees. We have really enjoyed our stay there.
Incredible location to bliss out in Ubud. I loved coming back at the end of each day and falling asleep to the sounds of the Balinese wild. The staff were wonderfully kind and welcoming :)
The most delightful location and a great place to stay. Very professional set up and I would most definitely recommend.
This was a great place to stay for me and my family. We really enjoyed the eco friendly house, the staff that works there was great. The place is really quiet and calm, but also near the centre of Ubud. Pernilla arranged for an airport pickup, and all went like a charm.
I came here travelling alone for the first time in over 20 years and was quite nervous. Pernilla arranged a great driver to pick me up who ended up being my driver and friend for 4 days! The house and surrounding was so beautiful that I felt I must have died and gone to heaven. The staff were lovely, I can't fault anything and really hope to come back one day!
A truly magical trip!
Thank you Pernilla!

About the Host, Pernilla
Bit of a road gypsy, love to travel and go places I haven't seen before. Photography is a passion of mine, and keeping fit with yoga, gym, and Chess. I love meeting new people from all over the world and experience different cultures.
I design beautiful hand block printed slim fit men shirts, which takes me to India every year, and I make bags made from old vintage afghan dresses, and also working on a dress line for women. My life is full of love, colors and music, thanks to all the amazing people I have met along the road, and listing my home here on Airbnb, gives me the opportunity to meet a lot more.
my life philosophy:
Enjoy the ride......
