“Paradise. Harvest Moon is one of those rare finds” - Guest Comment

Designed by our high-end fashion design team from Holland who came to Bali for a quieter life, staying at Harvest Moon is like living in a magazine.

Harvest Moon comes with wifi, towels, a full kitchen, pool, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an outdoor bale with a third double bed. Donna Karen-inspired handmade furniture, sumptuous lighting by DeLighting, quiet, friendly staff and an onsite manager are also here to help you relax. They also make the freshest breakfast in town.

You’ll want to note that only the master bedroom has airconditioning. The huge suite upstairs has traditionally thatched alung-alung roof and catches a gentle breeze as you sleep peacefully beneath the tailored mosquito net. Or use the fans to keep yourself cool.

The cosy outdoor 'bale' (pronounced bah-lay) which doubles as an inviting day bed for lounging and an intimate extra bedroom for al-fresco sleeping at night.

The staff cook you breakfast and make fresh coffee every morning in your modern kitchen on Modena stovetops. Bowls of fresh fruit and clean drinking water keep you going while you decide whether to spend the day by your private pool, lounge at the communal lap pool or head to Ubud for shopping, yoga or exploring the markets and temples.

On your return enjoy the cool evening air and appreciate the mood created by DeLighting’s lamps and feature lights. Relax on the day bed, the lounge or upstairs on the couch while you plan the evening’s activities or return to your book and wait for home delivery from many of the world class cafes in Ubud.

Nannys, recommendations for massage, yoga classes and other modalities, motorbikes, cars with drivers and tourist information is all available on request. If there's more you want then just ask!

Everything is available for you at Harvest Moon. Book now before someone else takes the dates! We’ve had guests who book Harvest Moon before their plane tickets - make sure you get your dates now. We look forward to welcoming you.

-UPDATE-
We've also been featured in a design blog and a model shoot.

The silver boxes you'll see at Harvest Moon were featured in a model shoot done on location.

And Ashley Muir Bruhn, a NY blogger who writes a design and lifestyle blog called Hither and Thither stayed at Harvest Moon in early 2013 and was blown away. Search for “hitherandthither welcome-to-ubud” to see what she has to say about travelling with her husband and her newly born son.

Guest access

Every part of Harvest Moon is yours to enjoy. There's also a 14m lap pool with a deck and lounge chairs in the communal area with a kiddy splash pool and a shady outdoor hut to watch your children while relaxing in style.

Interaction with guests

Aristya is our onsite manager. You'll probably hear from him before you arrive via email. He is an experienced tour guide and knows the sights and special places of Ubud better than anyone.

Ask him about a massage or a cooking class!

Other things to note

Dogs are common everywhere in Bali, and the compound where we live is no exception! Our designer loves animals to the extent that she and her husband would rescue frogs from the pool when Harvest Moon was being built. They have several dogs that they have adopted and cared for. They are friendly and the little yellow collars they wear signify that they have been given their shots.

Bali lies in the tropics which is why it is so warm and lush. Our villa is designed to blend with the natural environment which means that
- we don't need much air conditioning as the open style captures natural breezes
- high ceilings and our traditional roofing keep the villa cool
- large ceiling fans also maintain the breeze

Because we are close to the rice fields and the healthy ecosystem of Bali you will notice tiny geckos which make a cute "gek-ko" sound. Our ponds are full of fish and the occasional small frog, Please understand that the tropics are always full of little creatures, and if this is likely to bother you you should consider a resort where they choose to spray their entire grounds to remove all the insects.

Since we are also in a rural area, seasonal noises from the field from rice farming and local temples may carry across the fields. This is the paradox of visiting Bali - it’s a growing mix of modern and ancient which the Balinese themselves manage with a gentle and effortless smile. We trust you’ll experience this same attitude of gratitude to life that embodies the spiritual approach of the Balinese. It’s really what makes this island special.

The first rule is you must relax. After that everything else will take care of itself.

We don't advise smoking inside because the roof is a traditional alung-alung roof made of thatch. Thatch and fire don't mix well with houses. So we've installed mosquito repellants which work from the powerpoints and also ask you to refrain from burning candles.

There are other villas nearby all lovingly designed by the same architect. So we keep things quiet after 10pm and before 8am in the morning. You'll be so absorbed by the evening stars and the cool morning light you'll feel like it's the perfect way to be anyway.

And there are a few dogs which share the grounds with us. They have been adopted by the architect (who loves animals). They are well treated, fully vaccinated and definitely don't bite. As Bali dogs go they live like kings (and children love them).

Other than that my only request is that you treat my house like your own. It's a special place. I know you're going to love it :)

Harvest Moon is a beautiful villa in a great setting. Communication with the owners was spot on and when there was one slight issue with the booking, it was resolved in an exemplary way. As other guests have said, the staff here really complete the picture. Everyone is so lovely and helpful - our thanks to them all. If I had one suggestion (I shan't call it a complaint as I'm bordering on splitting hairs) it would be to provide shampoo and shower gel. Arriving at 1am after nearly 24 hours travelling, it would have been most welcome. Overall, highly recommended and hope to come back.

The location was perfect for our family as we had booked the kids at the Green School, where they spent 5 days. We were out for most of the days as Ubud has so much to offer.

Stunning villa, exactly as pictured, or even nicer!! We absolutely loved our 5 nights' stay in this gorgeous villa, travelling with my mother and our young son. The villa is beautifully designed, with luxury and comfort in mind, just the perfect place to relax for a few days. The surrounding rice fields and village are a great setting. Gorgeous bathrooms with outdoor shower in the main bathroom and one that's a bit more covered in the second bathroom. We had everything we needed, and loved that you have the privacy of a villa, along with the convenience of having breakfast cooked, the house cleaned each day, and the on-site staff for assistance and to answer any questions. The driver for the villa was able to arrange for drivers each time we needed one, and it's really easy to get food delivered if you don't want to go out. The phone provided was really helpful too. We were travelling with a baby, and found the place worked really well for our family, they provided a cot for our nearly 1-year-old baby, along with a mosquito net and a high chair. Our son loved morning walks around the villa and surrounding village, meeting the neighbourhood cats and dogs, and friendly locals, and seeing the temples nearby, and the little frogs that were outside and in the bathrooms and the fish in the pond. A couple of things to note: the bedrooms get a lot of light in the mornings, so if you are bothered by lots of natural light, bring an eyemask. The pool didn't get a lot of sun in the time that we were there, so it stayed pretty cold, but the shared pool gets a lot more sun. Also I obviously didn't look too closely at the description and thought this was a 3 bedroom villa, we only needed 2 bedrooms, but the 3rd bedroom is actually an outside bale - which was great for relaxing during the day, but not strictly a 'room'. There are loads of areas for lounging and sleeping both inside and outside, by the pool, looking over rice fields, and the space worked really well for us. It was great being out of town, and close enough to easily get into Ubud, however it's worth being aware that the traffic in Ubud can be really heavy, especially around lunch time, so if you're planning activities in town, or that you need to drive through town for, make sure you leave enough time for getting there.

Harvest Moon is one of those exquisite destinations that takes your breath away. Exactly as visually displayed with the gentility & respect of a beautiful team that can never do enough for you. Nestled in the rice fields the wisdom & beauty of this island resonates through the property. Thank you for a truly intimate experience.

Had an amazing stay here and wish we'd stayed longer. The house is beautiful just like the pictures, staff are Amazing, delicious breakfasts every morning and it was peaceful and quiet. Had an awesome sleep. Really enjoyed seeing some of the local area and also not too far away from Ubud centre. We will be back.

Paradise! Harvest Moon is one of those rare finds. From the moment you walk into the larger property, then into the villa - you're struck by magical beauty everywhere. Green rice paddies, frangipani trees, well taken care of grounds and stunning views. We loved having a larger pool outside our villa, in addition to the private plunge pool in our villa. And the DECOR. So beautiful - white, open, spacious, high ceilings - simply gorgeous. Everything you want in a Bali villa for look, feel, vibe and comfort. The staff were amazing, breakfast delicious - they took such good care of us. Harvest Moon is only a 10 min scooter ride from Ubud - so close to everthing we wanted to do, but private, secluded and quiet for living outside of Ubud. We'll be back!

As a psychotherapist, specialising in children's palliative care, I easily value the beautiful things in my life; family, friends, music, travel and of course Ubud, Bali. AirBnB chose these villas for their global campaign which was a wonderful honour and testimony to the beauty of Desa Bulan and it's Moon Villas: River Moon, Harvest Moon, Summer Moon.
