Wayan's charming traditional Bali house is part of a multi-generational Balinese compound that is rarely experienced by visitors. You will be part of the vivid, gregarious and humble community life that is the REAL Bali. Wayan and her family will share their culture, traditions, history and religion with you in an open and humble way that is very, very special. You will become a part of their big and loving family. The compound houses 4 generations of Wayan’s husband’s family each in their own separate sections moving to the rhythm of their daily chores, interests and routines.

The family temple lies just beyond the garden of your mini house and is the center of the spiritual life of the family. Take part in the daily offerings or the larger ceremonies to appreciate the importance of rituals and ancestors. Pets and animals are a big part of the compound. In their own separate area in the back of the compound are the family’s livestock, chickens and pigs.

Wayan is a talented Jegog dancer and is happy to introduce and explain the intricacies of the Balinese traditional dances. You can also learn some Balinese or Bahasa Indonesian with her. The rice terraces of Tegalalang lie to the back of the compound as do 2 rivers. Daily walks through the rice terraces at sunrise and sunset are incredibly beautiful as the herons wing their way to their roosting grounds in the next village over. Or join the village children as they splash about.

The compound is fronted by a village grocer where all of your daily grocery needs are stocked. There are numerous local restaurants (warungs) within walking distance or Wayan is happy to prepare authentic meals for about 1 Euro.. Ask for the local delicacies and even cooking lessons to learn more about Balinese cuisine.

Wayan can also arrange massages or other natural therapy on site. Transportation to and from Ubud, daily tours are readily available or you can rent a motorbike or car to get around under your own steam.

My stay at Wayan's house was such a blessing on so many levels. The house is quaint, quiet and in a very charming, traditional rural village. As a solo female traveller, I felt very safe and looked after here. Wayan's hosting and hospitality skills are second to none, she is a complete angel and will transform your whole trip into something even more beautiful than you expected. She absolutely enriched my experience of Bali and I have a lot to thank her for! Highly, highly, HIGHLY recommended! Thank you so much Wayan and family for a perfect stay.

We had an excellent stay at Wayan's guest house. It is located in a small village with many warungs around where you can eat delicious, cheap meals and enjoy fresh juice. It is also quiet and peaceful so you aren't disturbed by the sound of scooters and cars like in Ubud. It is only a 7 min drive to the main area so you can't beat that. On top of all of this to stay with Wayan is lovely, she has a very bubbly personality and wants you to have an excellent stay with her. If there are any problems, questions or concerns while you are there she will have them solved before you wake up and you will never know anything was even wrong. I highly recommend staying here because you have the convenience of being close to all the attractions while staying in a place that feels like home.

Anita's Villa was a great place to stay. Wayan the host made us feel like part of the family. The location was nice. It is basically on a farm with chickens and pigs so you will get the Bali farm feel. It's a beautiful space. Wayan took us to be a part of their local temple celebration as well.

Thank you lovely Wayan for my wonderful stay at Charming House! I felt so welcomed and the house was beautiful, a perfect retreat to get some work done in peace and quiet. There is a friendly village with a wonderful little restaurant 5 minutes' walk away, and Ubud is short journey on a scooter. Wayan is a warm and generous host, and I absolutely loved the little snapshot into her life that my stay gave to me.

Everything about Wayan Sri's home, the winding narrow roads of the countryside, the surrounding rice paddies, the nature sound of the river, and morning orchestra of insects, gecko, pigs and roosters, and the people in the village with whom I'd interacted were so beautiful. They all brought back so many fond memories of my own childhood and my homeland where I grew up in early years. The experiences of having connected with such kind and authentic human beings during my stay here in the countryside of Ubud have refilled my heart with so much joy, hope and love. My sensitive stomach had a difficult time during my time here but Wayan took time off from work to make me Soto Ayam (Balinese chicken soup). I am forever thankful for having met such beautiful souls during my trip to Ubud. Although I traveled as a solo woman, I never felt alone as I was welcomed in as part of Wayan's family and joined in the big ceremony Galungun with the whole village and other visitors. Also, I am grateful to have shared so much laughter and wonderful moments with Anita who was generous enough to give me little excursions on her motorbike, and showed me great local food places in Ubud. Some of my best moments in Bali were spent riding in the back of the motorbike. Only one day soon, I hope to return to this beautiful part of the world.

Me and my friend Anna had a really special time at this guesthouse. It's a very charming little temple like house with an amazing garden full of beautiful flowers and plants, and even a fluffy white rabbit! The house also has a great secluded outside shower that has the forrest green and animal sounds peep in while you stand there. Our host Wayan was there for everything we needed. She was really kind with a beautiful smile, and has prepared breakfast for us twice. It was great to be able to escape the Ubud hustle and return to our quiet and peaceful little house! Would definitely recommend!!
