Lovely bamboo gazebo-cottage with workshop in Penestanan-Ubud for rent. Suitable for creative people. The gazebo is part of a balinese compound and is located in the center of Penestanan, next to shops and restaurants and a hotel with swimming pool.
The Gazebo is a beautiful structure and space made of bamboo, surrounded by small ponds with fish and green bamboo. There is an outdoor space where you can hang around, practice yoga or work with your art project. The bedroom is upstairs, with a double bed and a small space for meditation. The bathroom is semi-outdoor and made with beautiful nature materials such as stone and bamboo. The kitchenette is small and made by recycled wood and has a small cocking plate, a small sink and a small fridge.
The space has been created in a sense that you will find all the necessities you need for your stay, on a small condense and very beautiful space. Being part of a Balinese compound also give you a sense of protection and allow you to focus inward and turn off the world outside.
Interaction with Guests
My caretaker will look after you and will assist you if you have any questions or special request like need of transport, breakfast, laundry service etc. For those staying longtime the space will be cleaned twice a week.
The space is located in the center of the vibrant Penestanan area, in a nice and safe neighborhood were many western people live. The area has many nice restaurants and shops. It is located next to Kue Bakery and Sari Organic and 3 min away from Alchemy. Next door is a nice hotel where you can have a swim in the pool for the cost of a coffee or a drink.
To Ubud center it is a 15-20 min walk or 5 min on the scooter.
What a unique little spot! I loved the tree house/bunk bed feel of the lofted bedroom and the open indoor/outdoor living space below (with fish pond and trickling fountain feature). A little close the road so you can hear traffic at times, but otherwise a great stay. The staff was super sweet and helpful and even arranged for my laundry to be done. The wifi was fast and reliable. Would recommend!
Ich war in Marias kleiner Oase am Ende meiner Reise auf Bali. Die Unterkunft liegt ausserhalb vom Ubud in Penestenan, ins Zentrum ist es ein gutes Stück zu Fuß, direkt gegeber und nebenan kann man aber allerbestens Essen / Frühstücken usw. Ich habe Maria persönlich angetroffen, eine ganz wunderbare Frau mot viel Humor, überaus gastfreundlich. Die Unterkunft selbst ist so wie beschrieben, für alles ist gesorgt an alles ist gedacht. Ich kann diese Unterkunft nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen, auch total nett, die Poolbenutzung im Hotel nur einen Steinwurf entfernt. Ha! danke Maria für diesen Tip und Deine Gastfreundschaft. Om Shanti shanti shant(phone number hidden)
Maria is very kind and the place was perfect for me. It's near to Shenggingan road which had a lot of galleries and the penestanan is also calm and peaceful area. The crowded main roads are not too far but not easy to walk everyday.
I spent four nights and wanted to stay more days.
In Gazebo, the shower is a little bit weak and the night time, it wasn't warm anymore even it's Bali. But Maria brought me a blanket as soon as I told about it.
It was lucky that Maria's been the next door whild I was staying.
I love the taste of her, the place shows. I had a great holidays in there. Thank you.
The Bamboo house was very pretty.. But when we arrived the care taker was to busy to show someone else around. Some other man who didnt speak english lead us to the house and after 30 seconds we never saw them again without any explanation . There were blood spots on the blanket. The road near to the Bamboo house was even at night very busy.
The place is great. It's clean, spacious, comfortable, and has everything you need to be sufficient. And is in a great location for exploring Ubud and it's surroundings while having some reprieve from city.
I really liked staying in Maria place, as it is a truely unique experience. Nowhere else in the world exists a place like this one.
If you want to stay right in the action of Ubud this is not the place for you, as the gazebo is on the outskirts of the citycenter. Still lots of place to eat but you will have to walk about 15 mins to get into the heart of Ubud.
But this place is peaceful and unique.
The staff Wira was there to welcome me and he come cleaning every 2 days, changing sheets and towels every time.
We had a problem with the toilet (the floating device not working properly) which would could fix ourselves. But in case you're not handy, it takes time for you to contact Maria and then for Maria to contact her staff. As she is based in Europe (I believe) it takes a bit of time to respond emails.
Saying that, I had an excellent stay at Maria's gazebo and would recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in a quiet area of Ubud in a unique house.
It was an absolute memorable experience to stay at Maria's place. It's very cosy and charming. Loved it! It's walking distance to Ubus shopping district and is close to many lovely restaurants and cafes. Wonderful!

I am an architect, textile designer and artisan. I love space, structures and patterns. I come to Bali every year for the beauty of the culture, the people, the artwork and the architecture. I also come to Calascio in Italy for the same reasons,, I have built some personal and creative places. I hope you will enjoy the stay!
