About this listing

The space

Ours is a post and beam home constructed without nails in a truly unique fashion. The Japanese style sliding doors allow you to completely join the indoor and outdoor spaces or slide them shut for more privacy. The upstairs bedroom gives views of the rice fields and the jungle right from your bed! Amazing to wake up to! This is our dream home but until we can stay all year, we will share it with you.

Guests have their own private garden and plunge pool as well as fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. The house also has a tv with dvd player (no cable), movie library and book library (take one/ and or leave one). Wifi access and small office area in home. Also part of a small compound of 12 houses that share a larger garden space, pool, courtyards and staff always available. Breakfast cooked for you in the house each day is included as well as daily cleaning. Towels and linens supplied.

I am available by email for any and all issues, questions or celebrations but live in Canada so am not on property and the time difference can be difficult. Wayan is our on site manager and there are night security if you arrive late. We recommend booking a local driver to pick you up as some drivers from farther away have struggled with directions. There is also a staff that includes cleaners, cooks and gardeners available as needed. You will be pampered!

I love that fact that our house and compound are tucked away. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere with the rice field views and the farmers walking by but are only just out of Ubud by foot or a bike ride. Our staff are all local and if you are interested are always willing to take you to local ceremonies and include you in their culture or come to the house and cook for you. To me, we have the perfect balance of local flavour and culture with the comforts of home. That is why we chose the house!

Local drivers can be hired through the staff or you can just walk out to the street and wait for a honk. Town is also easily accessible by walking, biking or a quick ride on a scooter. Cars, scooters and bikes can be rented from the staff. And if all that is too much, most of the local restaurants deliver!

The shallow cool water plunge pool is a great place to hang out if the pool is crowded or a nice place to let your children splash about safely. Plus we have loungers and beanbag chairs on our separate patios. The house is not huge but it is comfortable and cozy!

Out stay in Micheles House was absolutly great! The house was huge with a lovely garden, wonderful outdoor bathroom and everything you need: even a good collections of DVDs and books! The Pool was fantastic and the stuff always super friendly and helpful. Michele really is a an amazing host, very caring and answering every question we had. I'm highly recommending this place!

Had a lovely stay. Very nice pool with great views of the rice field. Staff not always reachable and I don't recommend walking into Ubud due to traffic but it's super easy to travel by taxi or scooter. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Absolutely loved the atmosphere and environment of this beautiful villa. Made excellent use of the magnificent pool, enjoyed cooked breakfasts daily and received help with all queries from the friendly staff. It was far enough from the hustle & bustle to relax & unwind, yet still be close enough to enjoy all Ubud & surrounds has to offer. It took a few nights to get used to the local noises (frogs, roosters dogs), but enjoyed the sense of closeness with beautiful surroundings. Hearing the rain at night was a bonus!

Was a lovely private place to stay. Beautiful house and pool. It's a bit out of town so you need to take a taxi there and back. 50-70K Pool is lovely and rooms clean and comfortable. A nice breakfast of fruit, banana pancakes or eggs was cooked for us each morning. Good place for a longer stay in Ubud.

Wonderful house and very cozydecoration. We loved our stay and the personnel was very friendly. However sometimes we could reach them. Great location for someone with motorbike and the landscape is wonderful.

Michelle's place is absolutely beautiful! The staff and Wayan (the manager) are very good people and very helpful! Unfortunately, we could only stay for one night as I am very allergic to pollen and asthma prone. Michelle was very understanding and kind to let us cancel the remainder of our trip for full refund. All in all if you would like an authentic experience here in ubud I would suggest to stay here!!!

Supercharming house in a very nice area just a few minutes away from the center of Ubud which we loved as it was a bit outside the sometimes very busy Ubud. The house is very clean & looks even better than on the photos. The pool with a view over the surrounding ricefield is fantastic. Wayam the manager is a very friendly guy & can organize everything you need (i.e. renting scooters, organize trips & great authentic restaurant recommandations). House is daily cleaned & the very nice ladies serve also a great breakfast of your choice at your terrace. Unfortunately we didn't meet Michele in person but everything was perfectly organized & she had a lot of great tips what to do in Bali. We highly recommend this true gem & can't wait to come back.

I am a teacher on a mission to retire to Bali. My husband and I got married on an elephant in Bali in 2003 and have been on a mission to move there since. Our current goal is to be there by 2021 but for now we have the home of our heart there and spend a portion of each summer there enjoying all that Bali has to offer. We currently sponsor 4 families' children to keep them in school to give back and spend a part of each summer visiting these families. 2 of our former students have graduated and are currently working or raising families. We would love to host you in our home when we are not lucky enough to be there and hope you love it as much as we do!
