Our main and only rule ? "MINDFULNESS IS HAPPINESS"......
Yet, experience being a teacher … we have to set up a few points here, PLEASE READ carefully and PRINT or SAVE….:
— COMPULSORY UPON ARRIVAL: Police declaration for ALL foreigners requires a HARD COPY of passport for each person staying in the listing (including children) --
- SPRING MINERAL WATER, 20L JUG: 25.000RP (2USD) — or bring your own Bottle (yet, more plastic to dispose of, and 1Liter costs about 4.000Rp in any shop!) —
— LOST KEYS are charged 20USD.
- NO extra guest beyond those registered in your reservation are allowed to stay overnight.
MINDFULNESS - is about RESPECT and CONSIDERATION of OTHERS and of the ENVIRONMENT --
Please share our ECO-FRIENDLY approach:
— Switch OFF LIGHTS & FANS before going out !
— Be conservative with your use of WATER, a very precious resource here. --
— SMOKING allowed OUTSIDE only. Please dispose your cigarettes in an ashtray, thank you--
— Going out? LOCK YOUR ROOM DOOR, close your window, LOCK THE MAIN GATE -- KEEP YOUR VALUABLES inside the CABINET, rather than in plain sight - (we feel this goes without saying, but would like to mention it anyway).
— Bring a FLASH LIGHT with you if you will be coming or going after dark. --
— OUR BEDDINGS are in very good state. - BABIES & CHILDREN shud be fitted with nappies - Besides, we request Parents to bring their own RUBBER SHEET to protect the bed from any annoying issue.
-- STAINED Mattress, Pillows or cushions will be charged accordingly.
— "MINI BAR” : SNACKS and DRINKS (provided in the fridge) to be settled in Cash RP, following marked prices. Your payment left on the table (for our House Keeper) Thank you.

— PETS: We LOVE them. Yet we reserve the right to ALLOW them on the property. TALK to us first, TKS --
— SAFETY: OPEN FLAMES (candles, incense, oil burners..) : make sure to put them on a metal/glass plate. NEVER leave them unattended for obvious safety reasons, for yourself as well as others - safety rules also valid for the GAS COOKER.
- ELECTRICITY, Water, and Internet service: while these are all currently active in the listing, from time to time there can be a lapse in their accessibility due to the more primitive infrastructure of services on the island (remember, this is Bali!); there is nothing that can be done about a lapse in service and does NOT constitute a valid reason for cancelling with the expectation of a refund. We appreciate your understanding regarding this.
— SCOOTER RENTAL --
We recommend MR NYOMAN, a reputable company. Consider $5USD/day - UPON REQUEST, ahead of time, please, it will be delivered upon arrival, with Helmet and raincoat; payment and contract settled directly with Mr Nyoman upon delivery .
- HEALTH INSURANCE is obviously IMPORTANT.
— FOR ANY TRANSPORT REQUIREMENTS please let us know AHEAD OF TIME, we can help you get organised with our safe reliable local drivers (Car or “Ojek” Taxi Moto).
— Please be considerate and avoid "last Minute'' requests, Bali is on a SLOW pace, and not up to Western criteria!
— We appreciate your READING, UNDERSTANDING (and PRINTING / or SAVING) of the present HOUSE RULES.
— Thank you very much for caring ! -

We had a great stay at the tree top nest! It was beautifully secluded from the centre of Ubud but not too far out. The apartment is cosy and accommodating and is a great place to unwind from the rest of Bali!
Lovely stay at the Jungalow Tree Top apartment. Beautiful stylised room high up over the trees. Definitely follow the steps down to the river for a refreshing little adventure.
The jungalow is a truly magical place: tucked in a hill and surrounded by lush jungle one feels one with nature. It's beautifully decorated and tini, marie and dhani make you feel at home and have heaps of useful tips of what to do when one doesn't want to stay in and enjoy the magnificient views. We'd go back anytime!
THANK YOU LIVIA for your positive response that acknowledges our TEAM'S effort in making our Guests feel comfortable, relaxed and happy in a well maintained TREE TOP HOME "JUNGALOW" in UBUD, BALI -
Please come back anytime,
it was a pleasure to meet you and serve you
If you are looking for a peaceful, private, riverside retreat from the busy streets of Ubud, this is it! My wife and I stayed for 3 days, then added a day, then extended our plane tickets and stayed two more days. The house has a rustic bungalow feel - we stayed in the upper flat and loved the views and the sound of the river. The river really gave us the vacation we were hoping for - once we got brave, we swam to the other side, climbed the ancient stairs and walked along a water aqueduct through terraced rice fields along the riverbank. Beautiful.
Thank you JOEL for acknowledging the beauty of the surroundings and the river at our TREE TOP APARTMENT JUNGALOW.
We are taking into account your suggestions, maintenance of our places is an ongoing work that we feel is important to do.
We are for example in November 2014 going to repaint the kitchen walls and change the bathroom roof, projects that bring freshness and quality to the JUNGALOW.
Please come back soon to BALI to see the changes...
Best greetings and safe travels.
Tini was excellent with communication and information throughout the whole booking process. She provided useful tips to make sure our stay was as planned.
When we arrived at the Jungalow, we decided that the lower level accommodation was more preferable to the one we booked just because of the better experience of enjoying the jungle area.
Fortunately the lower level was not booked and it was no problem to allow us to stay there.
We requested a scooter for hire through Tini, which was there as requested.
Tini also assisted with our departure to a collection point for the next part of our journey.
Thank you, Roger for acknowledging the fact that we do focus on communication so as to listen to and satisfy our guests needs.
We also indeed find it important to make transport smooth and easy for foreigners who come to the JUNGALOW. A scooter brings a sense of independence, develops a taste for exploration and the discovery of hidden spots.
We are looking into the question of lights in the lane and steps, so that we are installing more lamps and giving each guest a brand new flash light!
When I arrived at the Jungalow in Ubud my jaw literally dropped! The accommodation is absolutely magnificent - exactly what my soul was crying out for! It is spacious, clean and the views are stunning. Even my legs got used to the steps; my daily exercise! The staff were very friendly and welcoming. I will definitely be back for much longer....a month or so would do the trick. I LOVED IT!
Thank you DEBORAH for your warm and positive review of our JUNGALOW!
It cheers us up to hear that you found it "magnificent", clean, spacious and friendly staff.
We indeed focus on giving the best possible service to our guests, to make them feel at home, comfortable, safe and like to share infos about what to do, what to see and the best eating places in the area.
We are also looking into the possibility of installing a fold up table outside; thank you for yr input!
You are more than welcome anytime, and the soonest the better!
Certainly here your next book will find inspiration and nurturing...
Kind regards from all of us in Sayan.
