The Space

This is a family owned property with pets; one young dog named Vic, two grown cats named Dude and Dusty and one kitten Pepper, and one goat named Shirley are kept on the property and cared for by the staff. If you don't like animals this is not the place for you.

This home is a rare treat for anyone looking to experience a closer look at local life in Bali and to feel truly at home away from home. Immerse yourself in the nature that surrounds my property. Guests enjoy a quiet and very private stay in a traditional Balinese farming village. You can watch the daily routines of the local farmers as they pass by, hear the neighbor's cow mooing, watch ducks grazing in the rice fields, and take long gorgeous walks into the serenity and emerald green magic of surrounding rice fields. The 3 bedroom country home, sits on a large, lush, secluded garden property (35are - 1/3 of a hectare) facing pristine green rice fields. It was built for our mixed East/West family and a feeling of "home" prevails - pets and staff who have become members of our extended family also become part of yours.

The Main House
The 3 Bedroom Country Home is furnished with Javanese antiques and sleeps 4-5 comfortably. It has a large outdoor veranda surrounded by 2 koi ponds where you will spend most of your time. There is a large inside living room, a separate fully equipped Western kitchen with oven and laundry. A brand new bathroom renovation includes a large terazo hot water bathtub in an open air bathroom. All 3 bedrooms on the second floor open out onto gorgeous views of rice fields and gardens, two with double size antique Maduranese teak wood beds. The third bedroom has one single bed and a single size loft style bed - great for kids. The third floor offers a 32" flat screen tv with tons of DVDs, a comfortable space with more amazing views to be used as a children's playroom, or to read, nap, and do yoga. It can also be used as a 4th bedroom. The house is equipped with wireless high speed internet and has hardwood floors on the second and third floors. Woven bamboo walls throughout the second and third floors keep the house amazingly cool both day and night.

The Neighborhood
The Munivara Ashram for yoga and Puri Sunia Resort are close by if you'd like to treat yourself to a very nice dinner. Or if eating down home Balinese cooking while sitting in the rice fields is more your style you can also choose to eat at 2 nice warungs within walking distance.

Getting Around
You will need some sort of transportation to get back and forth from town. I am happy to organize either a rental car or motorbike or a car with driver for the duration of your stay.

This gorgeous unique home is staffed with the family’s housekeeper who provides house cleaning services. Please be reminded again that our family keeps several animals; Shirley the goat, Vic our new young watchdog in training, Dude and Dusty the most loveable cats. The animals are cared for by the staff but do roam throughout the property. At night Vic sleeps at the Lumbung. We also have chickens from time to time along with a sporadic seasonal veggie garden which you are welcome to participate in.

I made Bali my permanent home in 1986. I live full time in Ubud and have raised 2 children here. I would like to share my beautiful home with respectful people interested in experiencing a unique and personal visit to this magical island.

  • We stayed in Caroline's place for almost 4 weeks, really got to sink into the experience. The place is really, really, amazing, really well put together, very beautifully furnished, very cool. The space is large, the varanda is spectacular, the views are amazing. The land is beautifully maintained and designed. There is a crew of ducks and chickens, a goat, two great cats, a dog, it is a homey slice of heaven.

    Caroline is a great host, she is there in a house around the way and is open to conversation and support, and knowledgable about the whole island when asked. The staff who works on the property is very kind and we enjoyed getting to know them very much as well. At the same time, the space is very private.

    It is a real retreat, this space. It is a beautiful motor scooter ride into town. Truly a magical experience. Can't recommend it highly enough.

  • Beautiful space. Quiet and peaceful and so special to be out of the hum drum of Ubud. Need to have some form of transport to stay as too far to walk into town - either hire a driver or scooter. My little boy loved the goat and other animals. Caroline was very helpful.

  • was a very nice place to stay and we were looked after very well by Ayu and Wayan,Caroline's staff. Didn't have much contact with Caroline as she was away the first 4 days and we were sick the last 2, but I enjoyed our few conversations

  • We stayed in Caroline's Lumbung for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. If you are seeking a real Balinese experience, this serene house is the ideal place. Hoping we can come back soon!
