About this listing

Secluded, spacious studio villa nestled between flowing water, jungle and rice fields - Bali at its best!

The space

Nestled in the rice fields of Tegalalang district in central Bali is Talidandan Villa, just 5 kilometers north of Ubud. Designed by famed Dutch architect, Joost Van Grieken this warm minimalist design combines the stark simplicity of Japan with the open tropical refreshment of Bali. The villa is surrounded by a jungle, river, hill and rice fields of Gianyar Regency, the cultural and artistic center of Bali Island. Set a bit apart from the owner’s pavilions, the cottage is a 100 m2 self-contained 1-room unit with its own entrance, veranda, kitchen, shower and a shared 13-meter swimming pool. This is an ideal place for 1 or 2 persons who want a quiet retreat, away from busy city life. The villa has been featured in architectural publications.
Elegantly furnished in a warm Japanese/Balinese style, the house has an option of twin or double beds, complete with night reading lamps. In addition there is a dining table, 3-person sofa and large closet with a combination safe. The room includes both ceiling and floor fans, wi-fi, and a music system with ipod connector. The kitchen is completely equipped for cooking. The bathroom has a toilet, sink, 2 mirrors and a strong hot/cold shower. The balcony has a small table/chairs for 2 and a sofa and coffee table. The balcony overlooks a jungle garden and the swimming pool is accessed over a pond with stone steps. Maid, linen and security services are included.
The villa was constructed in 2002 by a top hotel builder using the finest materials - tightly woven alang-alang, grass roof, coconut posts in the balcony, rock steps across the pond. For those who appreciate design and art, Talidandan is exquisitely appointed with the finest furnishings and art… antique reed doors from Kyoto, Japan, Japanese paper window and lamps, paintings from well known Ubud artist’s Ngurrah KK, Wayan Kotir and Pantir cover the walls. A large textile from Threads of Life sponsored Lamalera village women’s craft hangs above the bed. Hand drawn bakit cloth cover the pillows. For those who want deep quiet in the arms of nature’s abundant arms this is the place to bring serenity to your spirit.

My staff and I are eager to help you settle into the delights of Bali.

One of the best experiences we had with Airbnb so far! The villa is fantastic, well designed and spacious and surrounded by beautiful nature. It is located a short drive outside of Ubud where you have lots of shops and restaurants, nearby are a few resorts providing breakfast, lunch or dinner. Christina and her staff have been amazing in making sure everything was perfect - we hope to be back!

Christina's getway is a perfect way to unwind in peaceful jungle seclusion; close enough to Ubud to access all that the town centre has to offer, and far enough away to enjoy the quiet natural surroundings. The availability of a motorbike was a fantastic addition. Christina was away during our stay, but her staff were always on hand to help with whatever we needed. We had all that we needed in terms of facilities, plus an amazing swimming pool. We loved it and would highly recommend staying there.

If you're searching for a local experience with clean, friendly, hospitable accommodations, Christina's place is your place! Definitely rent the motorbike for daily use and explore the ins and outs of beautiful Ubud. You're guaranteed to have a magical experience.

What a wonderful and impeccably designed villa. The drive there from town through the rice paddies is beautiful and serene. Well worth the drive too, central Ubud is sooooo congested. Christina is even more lovely than her property and her staff are very friendly and helpful to all your needs. We had the pool all to ourselves. I'd recommend getting coffee and croissants in town so you can have breakfast on the terrace looking out over the pond and pool in the morning before heading out. Highly recommend this place to couples.

We so enjoyed finding this setting many years ago and then building the house, organising the garden, and of course, hosting many friends and family from all over the world. We often travel out, especially to Japan and always feel the profound refreshment when I return.
