House Rules

We believe in responsible, mindful, educated travellers.
Our main rule? ~;+) mindfulness IS happiness ~;+)
We have set up a few IMPORTANT points, inspired by experience. Kindly please read.
— Compulsory, upon arrival: a HARD copy of each passport's relevant pages (including children) for Police declaration, for all foreigners (NO Xerox machine, no printer at our office, sorry...).
— Spring Mineral JUG dispenser (20L) use it for tea-coffee-washing fruit/veggies – preparing meals – and much BETTER than buying single-use plastic bottles; price is 25K Rp, pls settle on arrival, leave payment on the table, thk U.
- BREAKFAST: self service - consists of: • TEA, Bali grown COFFEE (not 'instant'), creamer, sugar
- Mindfulness is about respect and consideration of others and of the environment Please share our ECO-FRIENDLY approach:
- - Switch OFF lights AND fans before going out!
- - Be conservative with your use of WATER, a very precious resource here.
- - Washing your clothes in the accommodation is NOT allowed. => Contact us for your Laundry
- • We RECYCLE Metal cans, glass & PLASTIC bottles: keep them SEPARATE from other garbage
- - Our soap is diluted, to LIMIT toxic, harmful waste in our homes, ground water, rivers and streams.
- - Smoking is allowed OUTSIDE only. NOT in the room. Please dispose your cigarettes in an ashtray, NOT in the garden.
- PETS: We love them. Yet we reserve the right to allow them on the property. Kindly please TALK TO US first.
- SAFETY: Our place is very safe. Nevertheless, we advise our guests to act in a responsible way:
- - Lock your door & Main Gate, close your windows whenever going out.
- - keep your valuables INSIDE a cabinet, rather than in plain sight..
- - OPEN FLAMES (candles, incense, oil burners, gas cooker...) : NEVER leave them unattended for obvious safety reasons, for yourself & others. Make sure to keep them on a METAL/GLASS plate.
- - WATER HEATER is already set up: please do not change it - if need be, contact us asap, our Maintenance man will do it.
- - Bring your OWN FLASH LIGHT with you when coming or going after dark. - there are about 30 STEPS to access the Jungalow, nothing "athletic", and there is a railing to hold on to.
- - Be aware that PATHWAYS AND STEPS can be SLIPPERY. Moss, mold, rain, etc, can be expected. Stay FOCUS & AWARE.
- ELECTRICITY, Water, 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. Nothing can be done about this and does NOT constitute a valid reason for cancelling with the expectation of a refund. We appreciate your understanding regarding this.
- - USEFUL INFOS: - Our employees are OFF from 2PM - AirBnB hosting is NOT like staying at a Hotel:
- - NO 24/7 Reception Desk open for a welcome service; Owner and employees do NOT live on-site
- - Always mention your ARRIVAL TIME so KEYS can be organised for you
- - Make sure to use our OWN drivers rather than an unknown taxi (Addresses in Bali rarely have a clear Nr mentioned on the street)
- - Our own driver knows all the short cuts, the KEYS, the lights, our private contact Nr.
- - These advices are meant to assist you, specially if you are a new comer in Bali and S/E Asia... and remain of course entirely up to you.

We stayed here for 6 nights. This place is unique. Its not central Ubud. Not walking distance. you would need a scooter or a car. Enough space on the main street to park a small car. The house is not 30metres from the main street. Its more like 100 metres, and parts of it are steep and slippery steps. we have a 2 months young infant, if we can do it, so can you. When it's dark, the walk from the main st to the house can be "exciting", complete darkness. But the torch from your phone can bring you home. You have to walk pass a cemetery, thats the "exciting part". Bali and especially Ubud is very spiritual, whether you believe it or not we definitely felt the presence of "it". On the last night we encountered a big 2-3 metres Gold Ring Cat Snake on the walkway, they are mildly venomous and a bite can hospitalized. We shoo it away, but it was enough to startle us and leave us shaken and disturbed. The bed. The linen smelled damn because of the wet season. The mattress was springy, you wouldn't be happy if you like it firm. We like the walk down to the river but the walk back up can be challenging if you are not fit. Tini was responsive and attended to our needs. For the price, you probably wouldn't find anything better. Do we recommend you to stay here? Yes! (only if you are aware of the challenges). Also, the photos of the pools and yoga facilities are not of the property.

We are currently traveling around whole Bali island and I consider this as the most charming place to stay for now. It is little bit out of the city and I cannot imagine being there without a motorbike but that's just a whole plus of this place. Comfortable bad, spacious room, beautiful jungle view and unforgettable night jungle life symphony. Would come back.

This "jungle life symphony" is what makes the experience quite exceptional at the TREE TOP JUNGALOW - Thank you for this drop of poetry!

Absolutely enchanting stay at The Jungalow. Steps from a wonderland path down to a lush riverbed. Complete privacy and inspiring backyard. A bit removed from town if you don't ride a motorbike.

Response from Tini:
The JUNGALOW is located just 4Km away from Ubud, we do mention the distance within listing. Transport options are many, also given by us: Scooter, "Ojek" (Taxi-Moto) for less than 2 USD. Overlooking the Jungle and river valley, insects are naturally happening: "it's not a jungle 'ala Disney" .... bugs can be expected although we keep our house very clean, always using natural Essential Oils Spray. We are glad Alex, as a poet, enjoyed the Tree Top NEST JUNGALOW's "Complete privacy and inspiring backyard" as well as the "wonderland path down to a lush riverbed": a most amazing area in Ubud indeed, can't be found downtown... ;>)

Nice home, but a bit out of town - which is nice for quiet and a lovely river at end of steep staircase. The pool in the photos is not at this villa which is quite annoying since our daughter was looking forward to a swim and this a main reason we chose this place. We would have preferred somewhere closer to centre and to places to eat. Taxi is about $9 each way so the value of the stay took a bit of a hit. Plus we found nicer places with a pool close to cafes and centre for half the price (if you book outside air BnB) - most locals don't like the effect of airbnb or uber on their cultural and village life. Next time in Bali we won't use air BnB.

Response from Tini:
Mr Graham sent just 1 small message (Re bathroom) within their 3-day stay, never communicated with us about anything else. Now we read the critical review, all points could easily have been answered to while they were here. Besides, ALL critics are unfounded, since - QUOTED, copy/pasted from Listing - details ARE clearly given in the listing...! "Nice home, but a bit out of town…. " ".... Taxi is about $9 each way so the value of the stay took a bit of a hit." => Within Listing, in "THE NEIGHBOURHOOD" section: SAYAN, UBUD: one of the most privileged areas of Bali. Accommodation is located 4KM from Ubud. We give the distance in KILOMETERS, an objective mesure, rather than in terms of TIME subjective to speed, traffic… => DRIVERS, OUR OWN TEAM, reliable, safe: List provided in the "HOUSE MANUAL": " > DRIVERS we recommend: - Mr NYOMAN: email + WA Nr - Mr MADE AGUS: email + WA Nr - Mr ASTAWA: email + WA Nr - OJEK (Taxi-Scooter) Ms WAYAN = Mobile + Home Tel Nrs All our team speaks good English." .......“ $9 each way “ ?? => From JUNGALOW to Ubud centre OUR DRIVERS charge no more than 60.000Rp (= 6AU$), possibly down to 5AU$ when regular trips negotiated over 3 days… Mr Graham has never contacted any of them personally. => Plus, also mentioned : "For all your TRANSPORT NEEDS Please submit ahead of time: - SCOOTER, automatic (60K Rp/D, home delivered, helmets + raincoat); - Bicycle (30K Rp/D ) - TOURS (DownHill Cycling, Volcano trekking...): 1/2 or full Day" To our question Re SCOOTER, Mr GRAHAM wrote: " well a day or two and get our bearings before hiring one” Yet he never did get back to us.. " somewhere closer to centre and to places to eat." => within "NEIGHBOURHOOD" section: "FOODIES: NEARBY, you’ll find local places where to eat : - "Made's Warung” 500M away: fresh fish for 25-35K Rp... - "Sayan House": 300M away: great food, great views.. - Food court at "BALI WOOD" (800M away); - GAYA GELATO 50M away, cakes n tropical fruit sherbets ; Trendy places in Penestanan.. delicious food: - "Vespa Cafe”, "Kopi Desa”, "Alchemy”, "Bayu's Kitchen” (live band) and many local warungs all along Jl Raya Sayan. You’ll find local shops, mini-markets, fruit and vegetable markets all along the main road. Food delivery is available from a wide variety of places: Bali Buda, Pizza Bagus, Kafe, etc (see our folder in unit). "...a lovely river at end of steep staircase" and in his "private feed Back": "warning of the steep staircase would be good to include in your description." in fact IT IS, before writing, please do take a minute to READ: => in section "THE SPACE" "NOTE: - there are many STEPS between the street and the house - nothing athletic though (a guest aged 64 yrs old called it "my daily yoga!”)... " In “Check In Feed Back” Mr Graham writes: “Very dark, steep and slippery walk to the entrance -”. => YET here again, in HOUSE Manual section: "Remember -- Bring Your own FLASH LIGHT” This advice ALSO sent via thread on Airbnb to Mr Graham, email dated 3 May 2017. We DO regularly replace bulbs in the lane, yet Reason why we mention to "Bring Your own FLASH LIGHT” is that the new bulbs keep either "disappearing”, or taken as easy targets by kids with sling shots… => PLUS, in section ‘ THE SPACE”: "just be aware that it might be slippery due to rain, moss, etc - Use the railing, stay focus. Breathe, smile!” BALI is tropical, wet, humid, rainy season is Oct-May/June, sorry can’t move our position on the planet, nor change the weather…! Not mentioned by Mr Graham though: their plane landed with OVER ONE HOUR delay, however Mr Astawa, our driver, patiently waited at the Main exit, delaying his own return to his family home… we very much appreciate his dedication to our clients. "The pool in the photos is not at this villa which is quite annoying since our daughter was looking forward to a swim and this a main reason we chose this place." and AIRBNB writes to us in the "Accuracy feedback" section: "Your guest mentioned some issues that weren’t accurately reflected in your listing description: photos. Additional comments [by Mr Graham]: “Photo of pool in description was from a different property”. => THIS generated a serious issue for us as a small family business; we had to respond so as to avoid any penalty, sending a copy/paste of our description, adding the captions as mentioned below: => in “GUEST ACCESS” section: SWIMMING POOLS: We dont have one, [should we write we DO NOT have a pool"? in bold capitals?] but there are many nearby (fee about 40-50K Rp/day) - BALI WOOD (large park, individual pavilions, Kids PlayGround, Gym equipment, Spa, drinks and food - 700M away), - SAYAN TERRACE, 600M away - d'OMAH Bali Penestanan village, 1.5Km away - SUGAR Villas: Sea-salt water (Botanic Garden street, free access when meal there). - JUNGLE FISH overlooking jungle (fee 150K incl Buffet food) - Om Ham Retreat Center, Yoga + X LARGE POOL See the photo album." However, Mr Graham apparently has NOT, since ALL pics have CAPTIONS, example: "SWIMMING POOL AT 'SAYAN TERRACE' RESORT, JUST 300M AWAY" "Swimming Pool at Jungle Fish” Resort, near by" "swimming pool at BALI WOOD, just 500M away" "SWIMMING POOL + YOGA CLASSES AT OM HAM RETREAT CENTER. JL TIRTA TAWAR (BOTANIC GARDENS STR)”…. --- no reason then to believe that there IS a pool here, IF there was one it would be mentioned WITHIN listing, and why would we then show other pools…?! So that we are really sorry for the child, yet we can’t take responsibility for this misinterpretation. Kind advice: - Before booking, please do take a minute to READ, incl captioned pics... is this space right for you? - Before Reviewing, make sure to re-Read: any infos escaped yr attention, by any chance? Thank you for caring.

We had a lovely stay at this fairytale-like little intimate house. We cooked nice little dinners on the stove, dimmed the lights, lit candles bought a local wine at the supermarket just 5 minutes away by bike, and had a wonderful time here.

AH the TREE TOP NEST JUNGALOW qualified as a "fairytale-like little intimate house"? is a most appreciated description of the place, we LOVE it! Hakim must have the soul of a poet and be a nature lover, and it is what the Jungalow reveals to everyone's sensitivity. It is a great pleasure to hear that you had romantic dinners here and a "wonderful time". Please do comeback anytime !

I am a Balinese woman married with two young sons; I work as a Cook, House Keeper and Masseuse, so that keeps me busy...
My husband used to work on cruise boats, his English is quite good, he is a driver and takes care of the Scooters.
We are a great Team!
As a small family business, we like to make our guests enjoy their stay, making sure the house is clean, the garden trimmed, transport organized safely.

We are more than happy to welcome you here!
