This is not just a ‘ordinary’ villa, but a unique ‘Art villa’, designed and created with love by the Balinese owner and architect Pak Rai. Born and raised in Ubud, he studied architecture in Denpasar. For months he spend time on his land, meditating, making thousands of drawings, contemplating how he could make the best designs on his family ground. Pak Rai blends Western and Eastern influences in his creations and uses a mix of natural materials: riverstone, different woods and terrazzo stone. The house is built in harmony with nature: making use of the open view, the natural light and the river flowing below.

Interaction with guests

The interaction will be with me. My Balinese friend Ayu wil be there every day to help you getting around and help you with everything you need: from transport, fresh fruit to visit nice Balinese dances.

The neighborhood

Away from the hustle and bustle, and yet walking distance from supermarkets, restaurants and spas. This "Villa Taro'" is located around one hundred meters behind the Taro Gallery on Jalan Sangingan in Ubud. It is just a couple of minutes drive to the centre of Ubud. Within a minute’s walk you can have a choice of Mexican, Japanese or Indonesian food. Or you can choose to walk in the ricefields in front of the villa, and have a beautiful walk to Penestanan village for local restaurants within the ricefields. Bali Spa Botanica is our neighbour, so if you want to relax massage or do a day spa, it is ony a few steps away..

Getting around

Only few minutes drive from city centre of Ubud. Walking also possible: just walk down the main road ( Jalan Sanginan) , cross the big Champuan Bridge and you 'll find the centre after 20 minutes. ( Lists and maps how to get around are available in the house)

Other things to note

This whole villa is only a few months per year listed listed on Air Bnb. IN December and January it is possible to rent the whole villa ( 2 floors with own facilities)

I came back to this amazing house for a short stay. It's such a great place, very spacious and just absolutely beautiful, the pictures don't lie. The neighbourhood is upcoming, with a hip dessert-restaurant next-door, but by far less crowded than Ubud centre. This will be my place when I'm there.

I used the airbnb first time and honestly I worried about because don't understand how everything works. But Renske provided me everything for my calmness! And she organized my staying very professional and with the soul! From my arriving to my departure! She is incredible hosting, and just is sensitive and kind person! Thank you for our pleasant staying in the villa! The Villa is became our second home for a little time and it was incredibly hard to leave! I miss the time what I had there! A feeling of comfort, warmness like at home - it does not compare with anything! In the evening we lit candles and aroma sticks on the balcony and lying on a small couch and looking at the stars, jungle and the moon! it's incredibly romantic place! the surrounding atmosphere is just magical and brought us together with my husband! honeymoon at least!)) The villa is great: the surrounded area and the design help to relax and just enjoy of life! The villa is great located! it's really true: quiet, near to center, not far and around you can find the best places in Ubud! the Villa is clean, everyday cleaned, comfortable and has everything necessary for living! Ayu is housekeeping and your personal assistant and support: from cleaning to organizing a driver, a massage, laundry of your clothes for chip price or even motorbike rental. She is always ready to help you in everything and will do everything for your comfortable stay! We'll hope to come back! Renske,Ayo thank you for everything! Best, Anastasia!

Renske was very welcoming host. She and her partner are open and easy going people. She had arranged for a driver to pick us up from the airport and that all went smoothly. The driver even stopped at the supermarket so we could pick up some provisions (breakfast is not included), which was a good idea. The villa is modern and spacious. The bed is comfortable and the modern bathroom is half inside and half outside. The surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom are made of some kind of unsealed natural stone which looks lovely but stains easily. Renske is aware of this and we were careful so it wasn't really a problem. Renske was a responsive host e.g. the kitchen equipment was a bit lacking so she went out and bought the items we needed the very next day. There is a resident gecko which can be heard in the roof space from time to time ( a nice sound). It does leave droppings but they are easy to remove and do not smell. The neighbourhood is Sanggingam. There are several good restaurants in easy walking distance - Indonesian, Japanese, Balinese ... one is next door (Naughty Nuri's) which specialises in BBQ ribs and people come from miles around they are that good (we are mostly veggie so didn't sample). The supermarket is about 20 mis walk away but would be uphill back. You could walk into Ubud but after one trip it woud be a chore. Taxis generally cost 50,000 RP ($5 USD) regardless of where in Ubud you are going to. They are plentiful. Alternatively people hire mopeds or get a ride on the back of one for 10,000 RP

Renske was wonderful - really flexible, and even though she wasn't there she was very communicative and helpful. The place is beautiful, and just far enough away from Ubud center as to be peaceful, without being isolated. Her staff are lovely and made us feel very welcome.
