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. Guests remain fully responsible to keep their pet under control, and responsible for any damages caused to the apartment / Garden / people.
- 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 candles/incense 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 - we do not have a 24/7 Reception Desk; 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)
- 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.

This is a wonderful location to explore the ayung River on your own. The house had beautiful views and was perfect for being a part of the jungle. The host kept good contact with us and provided scooter rental and transport to our next hotel.

This place is very affordable and the view is stunning. But no ac plus wimpy fans made it somewhat uncomfortable during the day. It's also quite far from restaurants, atms, etc. Make sure you don't use (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps to get there, it will take you to the wrong place.

Response from Tini:
NO AC? But we are HONEST, and never mentioned anywhere in the Listing that AC could be expected... FANS are TWO, ceiling fans, plenty of fresh air with those + keeping windows open over the JUNGLE VALLEY is the very best ever breeze... Unfortunately modern Western life made people dependent on such items as AC that use a huge LOT of electricity, and our Island has limited means. THE MAP REF has been given to us by a most knowledgeable friend, it works FINE, maybe just 10M difference... PLUS, PLENTY of accurate details are given BESIDES the map, just READ WITHIN LISTING: DIRECTIONS, Landmarks, distances: on MAIN STREET SAYAN (West side, along RiverAYUNG) - 600m NORTH of "FOUR SEASONS" 5-Star Resort & 400m north of "SAYAN TERRACE” (both on same side of our Lane) - - 150m North of "GAYA GELATO" & 50m South of "SAYAN AYU" (both opposite side of our Lane ) - - 700M South of "AMANDARI" 5-Star Resort (Same side as us) - ALL LOCAL PEOPLE KNOW THESE PLACES - Lane marked with a LARGE number “103” + OUR LOGO in RED COLOR: a BIRD AND A HEART. ..."

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... ;>)

We had a great time here, riding scooters around Ubud! The location is a quick ride away from downtown Ubud, where there is plenty of shopping and food. The gelato place down the street is also delicious and a very short walk away. The Jungalow was beautifully furnished and surrounded by beautiful jungle scenery. Tini was also very helpful and thorough with her instructions, and the staff was very nice, and the fruit basket and included breakfast were fresh and very tasty. Overall, this was a great stay.

JESSICA mentioned in a private comment that she "LOVED the location, the furnishings, the helpful staff and instructions, and the beautiful surroundings!" We are proud of keeping the house in excellent state altho of course it is more than challenging in a tropical Island with 80% humidity, and with a Jungle surrounding, insects and animals included... - We have spent time and reflection in selecting the very best teak furniture, ancient wrought iron pieces for the terrace - Own design Home linen, all hand made by our local tailor, sculptures and paintings collected from all over the archipelago - HAPPY to hear as well that "the fruit basket and included breakfast were fresh and very tasty." THANK YOU for expressing your appreciation. We do fwd your message to all concerned, that recognition makes them feel so happy -

This is a peaceful and quiet place, where all you'll hear is the rushing river below you. Located well off the street, it's private and very spacious. Most of the windows look out on jungle. At night you may hear the gamelan performances at the Four Seasons down the road. The photos are completely accurate. I left all the windows open and never had to use the mosquito nets over the bed at night - in fact, I didn't see a mosquito the whole time I was there (9 days!) It was also cool and fresh most of the time and the ceiling fans were plenty for me to be comfortable. Located about a 40-minute walk outside of downtown Ubud, some transport is recommended, as mentioned in the listing. Loved this place but if you like to be in the heart of things, this is more off-the-beaten-path, in a good way.

We had a great stay with Tini! The natural sounds of the jungle and river where both peaceful and calming. Morning views of all the greenery are a treat. There is also a holy spring down by the river, perfect for a natural shower and to fill your water bottle. Very safe to drink and right beside a platform you could use for yoga. Tini also put me in touch with Nyoman who transported us all over Ubud who made out stay unforgettable. He is very reasonably priced and knows his way around all the great places. He stayed with us from 9-10pm most days and a wealth of knowledge and a sense of humor. Best time in Ubud thanks to Tini and Nyoman!!! Hope to visit again

Beautiful jungalow in Ubud. It's further away from central Ubud, but that's what was so nice about the place. You are staying in the jungle and the river is literally your backyard if you go down 200 stairs. Worth the small little hike down. We rented a motor bike and it made it super easy for us to get around Ubud. We saw so much on our four day visit in Ubud before heading out to Kuta. No air conditioning, but the fans in the room did the job just right:). We definitely recommend this place, but make sure you read directions sent by owner of the jungalow. It is tricky to find and can get confusing. Ask for Wyoman if you need a driver in Ubud. The owner will give you his information. He is the best and super friendly.
