“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 :)

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!

We saw some of the most beautiful sunsets of our life in this Villa. Absolutely stunning! The open concept lay-out was beautiful and well designed for functionality. Staying at Honey Moon will be something we remember for the rest of our lives. The staff were fantastic, and the location was great, as long as you don't mind being outside of town a little bit.... We would definitely come back.

Harvest Moon Villa is even more beautiful than the pictures. Really enjoyed my stay here. it was the perfect place to rest and relax. Wonderful and peaceful. The villa was really comfortable (especially the beds where I had the best night's sleep ever). Breakfast is amazing and the staff are so kind and sweet and also unobtrusive. I didn't want to leave. Definitely recommend it if you want a peaceful, stylish place close to Ubud but far away from the business and noise. Definitely coming back again!

Peaceful, serene, and comforting. From the first moment I contacted Ulrike's team, I felt taken care of and nurtured. The team is very nice and helpful in getting everything set up. The house itself is gorgeous. I loved the outdoor bed by the infinity pool, and the high quality beds with nice mosquito nets. It has a full kitchen and a beautiful outdoor bath. Spending the morning sitting on the porch looking out over the fields was especially nice. What was especially divine about this villa in Ubud was the energy of the place. When I stepped into the house it felt like all my worries and cares washed away, and I felt a sense of peacefulness and grace. It had been a super-hectic day, but, staying at this ubud villa helped me to quickly feel refreshed and relaxed. The villa is close to Ubud - just a short drive away, so I could easily take a taxi anywhere I wanted to go, without being in the hustle bustle and noise of Ubud. I would definitely suggest Harvest Moon over any of the hotels in Ubud. It is delightful.

Staying at Russell's home was an unforgettable experience for me. The house is a gorgeous and the services provided are remarkable. I did not meet Russell in person, but Kate and his team made sure that we were all comfortable. I can't recommend staying here more, you must go should the opportunity arise!

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 …
