About this listing

Nestled in some of the last preserved rice paddies of Penestanan, our transformed joglos (100 year old teak structures) are carefully designed to be in touch with nature. Penestanan is car free and the hippest area of town: yoga, healthy food cafes, rice-paddy walks and still 15 minutes on foot to Ubud. We have a book about our houses coming out! If Jazmin is full, check out Passiflora:

The space

Lovingly Designed to Be in touch with Nature. We were featured in the New York Times: Building in Harmony in Bali.
Walk 6 minutes or ride a rented scooter along a tropical river path (and then up 30 steps) to our architect-designed loft-like antique joglo (traditional Javanese teak house). Jazmin, like Passiflora is set in a rice paddy, which we have kept, partially intact, as part of our commitment to this agricultural tradition. Across the rice paddy is our other joglo,Passiflora Marguerite, our freshly remodeled house is across the walking path. We have also recently added a shared salt water pool for the use of our guests!
Our area has no car access nor motorbike noise, but many sounds of geckos, roosters, frogs and collared kingfisher birds, while still walking distance from Ubud (15 minutes).

Jazmin is a reclaimed antique joglo brought over timber by timber from Java. Each of my joglos has its own personality and I carefully design every detail to make sure that staying in these transformed traditional structures is a one of a kind experience in luxurious but simple ecological living.

As you walk into Jazmin, you'll be taken by the spacious loft -like feeling (1000 sq. ft. /90 meters square) with the added visual pleasure of antique teak timber beams and carved wood panels. The roof is made of handwoven grass known as "alang-alang" here.

I have combined traditional elements, but the sensibility is modern with an emphasis on comfort. There are no villas in Ubud quite as uniquely in touch with nature as Passiflora and Jazmin.

Read on the daybed on the verandah, have a conversation in the living room then have a nap in the bedroom on the king-sized super comfortable bed overlooking the ever changing landscape of the rice paddies. The kitchen is perfect for cooking: polished concrete countertops and reclaimed wood cabinet doors. At night, the bedroom locks up for privacy and safety, but the living room stays open for maximum connection with nature. You can practice yoga comfortably in so many spots and later bathe under the stars in the sunken tub. Made, Made and Eva will pamper you with healthy breakfasts of Bali Buda bread, Bali Coffee and our homemade yogurt and jam. No breakfast would be complete without a plate of tropical fruit. I'll leave you my list of my favorite secret spots and restaurants.

Honeymoon couples love Jazmin, however I also love staying in the joglos by myself. Our houses are the only two in Penestanan which are connected to traditional Balinese family temples.
Jazmin is a truly unique experience for FIT folks who want to be in touch with the Bali of rice farmers in the most natural but still luxurious way! Enjoy!
All my secret spots.. and sources from a ten year + + love affair with Bali. And my beautiful and kind and helpful staff: Sri, Made and Made.

I love meeting our guests and am doubly happy when I see the variety of different kinds of people, who are happy and make our homes their homes. That is your gift to me. I try to come by the first morning.. but I am traveling and building for clients, so quite busy. I am always available via email and SMS as are Sri my right hand, wonderful assistant. And it is nice to know that you have privacy as well. And we have a very complete list of all things wonderful that are must dos.. and a local phone for use of our guests with our numbers in them. Very handy.

Penestanan has become hip... and now has its very own yoga studio (Intuitive Flow), meditation center, approximately 10+ charming restaurants (Indonesian, Japanese, Indian, Raw/Organic, Vegetarian, Vegan) and a cafe and bakery, so you don't even have to get on your motorbike.
We can organize a scooter for you for $5 per day or you can take an expensive taxi to Ubud $5 per ride.. or you can walk... 20 minutes.. to all things Ubud . You can also hire a car with a driver for about $50 US.

If you'd like a joglo of your own, let us know. :)

Guest access

Ketut, Allo or Komang will be delighted pick you up at the airport. We recommend this option because they know where we live and are willing to carry bags. Other drivers are not. The cost is 350,00 Rp and can be paid to them directly. Our saltwater pool is for the use of all of our guests. You will find that you will have it all to yourselves most of the time.

Interaction with guests

Sri or I will try to be by on the first morning of your arrival. I am traveling and working with clients quite a bit, sooo busy. But I am always available via email or SMS.

The neighborhood

Penestanan is the hip part of town! Yoga, juices, spas, healthy eating all just far enough away from crowded Ubud.

Getting around

Scooters are $5 US per day. A car and driver can be about $50 US per day.
But taxi rides into town or back are expensive. Can be $5 US for a pretty short ride. Walking is a wonderful healthy way to get around.

The Jazmin Villa was absolutely perfect. I enjoyed the gorgeous space and kind hospitality of Sri and her staff, I can't wait to return. Further, you cannot beat the location - central to everything but just removed enough to enjoy peace and tranquility.

Beautiful location nestled in the rice paddies - scenic and quiet but a close enough walk to restaurants and shops. It is an open concept residence so if you're terrified of bugs or absolutely have to have air conditioning then this would not be the place for you.

I use Airbnb quite frequently and this beautiful villa was hands down the best place I've ever stayed - We absolutely loved it. We were looking for a place in Ubud that was a bit more secluded and off the beaten path from the town center, and this perfectly fit the bill. We arrived late at night, and when we woke up in the morning we were absolutely stunned by the beauty of the place. Penestenan is wonderful; no cars allowed so it's quiet and peaceful, but still easy walking distance down beautiful paths to a number of great restaurants (and to the town center if you want). Alejandra's recommendations were spot on, and we loved lounging by the pool and on the day bed. The outdoor bathtub and shower are also a dream. We even got massages in the villa one day. Don't think twice; book this place and you won't regret it!

The villa is very unique with a very open plan design. When you are in the living area, there is no barrier between you and the nature. You can watch a school of ducks walk by, can get a brief visit from a fruit bat, or say hello to a visiting frog. I really enjoyed this intimacy with the nature, which cannot be experienced when living in a busy metropolitan city. The beautiful Balinese design is just so charming, I feel privileged to have a chance to live in an architectural antique like this. Finally, cannot compliment more on Sri and Putu's service. They've taken care of our every need, including doing a private Balinese cooking class with me. It was a true Balinese experience. Will definitely recommend to stay at this villa.
