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.
- - 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.

i felt very welcomed! the studio has an amazing desk to work from, great lighting and everything was available! the shower is and works great, cold or hot, whatever you like and has a great power pressure!! :) the location is wonderful: monkey forest/ubud center etc just 5 min scooter ride away. across the studio is a great thai restaurant. lots of charming cafes, restaurants shops are close by as well! but the greatest thing is: tini, marie, diani & putu! they have been fun, supportive, kind, responsive and made me feel like a friend! need a scooter? need a ride? need anything? just ask & they help where ever they can! one of the ladies is always available! besides renting the room their team also offers spiritual journeys (you can (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) ubud spirit journey and should find it) and i went to see the master healer from the royal family of ubud. it was a very great experience i can only recommend to anyone! marie joins the tour and gives you a great background knowledge about the healer, how to show respect to him & the culture. the team has everything prepared for you (saragon etc.), which i find utterly important! there are many people going to the healer but he does take much more time with you when you go with tini's team. marie follows up on the way back and gives a little debriefing from what happened and takes time with you to go over it again. she understands the culture & spirituality of bali quite well and with her western background in psychology it is just the perfect combination. marie is basically the balinese encyclopeadia for foreigner & their needs! :) i'm so thankful to have met her as well as the rest of the girls, each of them simply a gem on this earth! bali i(URL HIDDEN)in the literal sense & i can only say that i have been in very great hands here! thank you so much!

Great and secluded location. The amount of info of house rules and the binder on reception is quite overwhelming and should be very obvious for guests. Shared kitchen and bathroom was not a problem and Miss Bee leaves you alone when necessary or invites you for a glass of wine. Very relaxing spot with helpful staff around every morning.

I would say good value for the money. The room is as shown on the Photoes and garden is pretty. I never had the breakfast there as I preferred to explore new places for that but if u decide to do so don't expect much is bread and jam. Yes there are pools closed by but if they are overbooked they will not let u in. I used the one in tamam bebek and it costed me 50 000 local currency entrance fee. Sayan area is nice and quiet. If u wanna eat for cheap and be delicious I strongly recommend warung made - it's a family owning it. Such a nice people! Location wise is ok ...I personally needed around 15 min with scooter to reach there. It's always a traffic. Marie ( the owner) looks like an interesting person but I didn't really had the chance to talk to her much as she was always busy and so was I. In general I had a good stay there. Thank you :) Regards, Anelina

Response from Tini:
Correction, for the sake of honesty, is that our Breakfast, as listed, is composed of - Tea, Bali Coffee (not instant), powder milk, Brown sugar, Cereal Mix, eggs, bread, butter, jam, fruit. Not so bad, at this price ! ~;>)

I’ve had a very pleasant stay at Bali Soul and Style! This cosy room is located in a neighborhood that has a lot to offer when it’s about dining or enjoying amazing views. The place itself is relaxing and clean, where the staff is friendly and reliable. Despite leading an active life style, my host, Marie was available to sharing local insight and giving advices that proved to be invaluable. We’ve had multiple in depth conversations that I enjoyed a lot. I look forward to meet her again!

Response from Tini:
Danielle arrive when already dark and our staff back home. so sorry cause mistake on our side: our Cleaner FORGOT to leave the key (she went to dentist, and pain so bad she forgot to leave key!) Danielle called the office Nr, and the lady writer rushed from other side of town where she had meeting, drop everything, was stressful cause important job meeting. just go quick to welcome our guest, help carry luggage, open the house. But danielle lectured the host, saying the direction not clear (!),telling her what and how she should do, calling her 'rude",no other better communication, one way talk, very harsh , no listening, just blame, etc We could refund via RBNB but the host refunded her immediately, and she left. We are sorry cause we have lovely positive reviews about this host, always guest say how much they appreciate her, - but we cannot recommend this guest's attitude .

Maya's house is nice place to be in, for you who want to ditch the crowd but still close to the city center. This is small little room equipped with everything you need. The lady writer and her staff is great and helpful. It's like living in a gnome house but everything is in the perfect size for you.

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!
