It was a great pleasure staying in your place. Your staff was wonderful, warm and extremely friendly. Thanks a lot!
We spent 2 days in this listing and had a great time. This rumah which is part of the complex called the Sanctuary is ard 5-10 mins by scooter to Ubud centre which we kinda preferred because it helped us escape the busy touristy areas. We have not met David nor Brenda but the local staff are totally friendly and helpful. Those pancakes and lassi for breakfast are superb. We recommend this place.
The staff was very welcoming - they arranged for airport pick up and transport to the B&B. The staff was always helpful and there was someone onsite at all times. The accommodations were as described in the advertisement.
We had the most enjoyable stay at Rumah David and will definitely be back. It was really nice to be a little outside of the centre of Ubud, the staff were the most helpful, smily people we met throughout our entire trip. They were really great when our flight was cancelled and arranged for an extra night very quickly. The breakfast was a big highlight every morning. David and Brenda did a fabulous job building this small village and we strongly recommend this lovely and very comfortable place.
It Takes a Village! Seriously.
Ibu Ketut opened her arms, as well the doors of this quaint, off the beaten path village style home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Great atmosphere provided, peaceful surroundings excellent.
Thanks, Rhonda and Spencer
When we arrived I genuinely couldn't believe that this place existed, it really is a little sanctuary in what is otherwise a bustling area of Ubud. I loved our time spent there. Our hosts went out of their way for us, kindly arranging last minute trips when ours had fallen through, and recommending places to eat and things to see. (If you do end up staying here I highly recommend the rice field walking tour with Wayan. He ended up tying in a trip to the coffee plantation, a tour of the market, lunch on the side of a mountain and a cultural tour of the village his family are from nearby. Wonderful!)
I've already recommended it to friends and will continue to do so. Was unlike any place I've seen while travelling through Bali and was a fantastic addition to our trip.

About the Host, David And Brenda
David, my husband was a set designer and furniture designer for the movie industry in Los Angeles for thirty years and worked with the tops in the industry....Steven Spielberg, Jodie Foster, Robert Redford, Bruce Springsteen and many more. His built the Captains Chair for Star Trek Insurrection and had the most "ordered" bed in TV history from the TV hit, "Mad about You".
He designed furniture for many top Restaurants in Los Angeles from the Saddle Peak Lodge in Malibu to Malibu Adobe with Ali McGraw. His resume is extensive and his client list is long....Billy Crystal, David Hasselhof, Arnold Schwarzanegger to Keenan Wayans.
He has translated that skill into building ten amazingly different houses since he's come to Bali. Our house is amazing and you will see why he is so in demand!
I have a variety of interests that keep me busy. I have spent years doing spiritual growth work and now work with others with addiction and codependency issues. I love this work and the chance to give back what I was taught. I've been an artist my whole life so our home is filled with original art ( mine and others) and I have an awesome studio..Anyone that loves to paint will fall in love here. My latest passion is teaching Zumba, What a blast!
As you can see, we are both loving our life and filling the hours manifesting our dreams. We both are creative artists and love to explore the world and the people in it.
Since we've been in Bali we've been taking in South East Asia. We love Vietnam, and Thailand for their amazing cuisine.
We are frequently traveling, so we are sorry that we don't get to meet all our guests, but we leave you in the hands of an amazing staff and manager, Eko and Sakming, who will be your contact people.
