Gorgeous 2 story, 2 bedroom apartment on edge of rice fields, 2 separate patios. Great restaurants close by, easy road access without the noise. Gated with private entrance, scooter parking, wifi, fans, windows, breezes, rice field & tree top views.

The space

The upper floor of this 3 story home is 2 story with 2 separate living spaces with a separate kitchen and bathroom. Fully equipped kitchen, refrigerator, 2 burner stove, juicer, blender etc. Bathroom shower, queen bed, daybed, mosquito nets and a floor fan. Could comfortably accommodate 2 couples or 2 adults and 2 children, although please note that if you are only renting the upstairs we do not accept children under the age of 12.

The top floor has a wooden floor perfect for a yoga practice.

This property is for rent alone or in conjunction with the downstairs apartment, in which case the tenants will have access to the saltwater pool.

Please note: unless this apartment is rented with the downstairs apartment, there will NOT be access to the pool.

We also ask prospective tenants to please note that there are 2 floors to the upstairs apartment, and consequently 2 separate flights of stairs, and these are fairly steep. If you have any trouble with mobility or an aversion to going up and down stairs then this is probably not the ideal location for you.

Very close to the main road, motorcycle parking available right at the entrance, yet completely screened from all traffic noises. On the edge of the rice fields with access to countless restaurants, a yoga studio, meditation center, easy access to a supermarket, and only a 1.5 km walk or a short drive to central Ubud.

Light cleaning, gardener and hi-speed wifi included.

Breakfast or any other meals are NOT included in the rental price. Neither are airport transfers.

Respectfully we ask that guests not bargain on the price, which is fixed. We are Balinese owned and run, we have invested all of our time and resources into this project and it supports our extended family. Thank you for understanding.

Please note: checkout is at 12:00 pm and check in at 2:00 pm, we are usually fully booked, and we always need a full 2 hours of cleaning to prepare for our next guests. Our staff all have family, temple and community obligations which are impacted if they have to work late, plus any late check outs will mean the potential loss of a night's rental. We will happily hold your bags in a safe place for you, but please book an extra night if you need to stay on the premises later than noon.

For arrivals at the house at or after 9:00 pm there is a late check-in fee of Rp 150,000. This late fee will not apply if you use one of our drivers to bring you to the house, as they will also be able to walk you and your bags into the house and complete the check in process for you. They are all either family members or completely familiar with our property. The manager will then see you the following morning.

PLEASE NOTE, THIS PROPERTY IS ON THE EDGE OF LIVING, WORKING RICE FIELDS, AND THERE ARE CREATURES AROUND. THE PROPERTY IS THOROUGHLY CLEANED DAILY (INCLUDING THE BEDS STRIPPED AND SWEPT), BUT THE ODD ANT (S), FROG, LIZARD OR ANY OTHER LOCAL CREATURE MAY ENCROACH ON OCCASION. IF YOU ARE SQUEAMISH, SENSITIVE OR HAVE ANY KIND OF AVERSION TO SUCH A POSSIBILITY, THEN WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU CHOOSE ANOTHER OF THE BALI LOCATIONS THAT IS NOT SO MUCH A PART OF THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT. WE DO NOT HAVE AC (NOR DO WE WANT IT), AND CHOOSE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE NATURAL BREEZES, FLOOR AND CEILING FANS. AIR CONDITIONED ACCOMMODATIONS ARE FAR LESS LIKELY TO HAVE ANY IMPACT FROM THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT, AS THEY ARE GENERALLY AIRTIGHT AND FULLY CLOSED OFF.

Airport transfers, laundry service and cooking can be arranged for an extra price. Excellent recommendations for massage therapists, shiatsu, reflexology and beauty treatments at the house. We also have scooters and motorbikes available for rent.

Penestanan is a lovely rice field village, which is also the centre for 'Young Artists' in Bali, and many other handicrafts. It is a comfortable 1.5 km stroll from central Ubud (one steep hill), a one hour drive from the airport, several beaches and the volcano in central Ubud. The rice fields themselves are car-free, although there is motorbike access, it is serene and filled with natural beauty, and much flora, fauna and wild-life. It is close to all the activities, yet in a unique and tranquil setting. Higher and towards the foothills of the volcano, still tropical but not as hot as the beach areas. This is the cultural centre of Bali, and besides the local artists there are several art galleries and museums, plus every evening there are traditional dance performances, besides local temple ceremonies, where visitors are always welcome. There are countless wonderful restaurants for all budgets, great night-life, yoga studios and access to every healing modality imaginable.

Guest access

Wifi. If the lower floor is also rented you have the pool, if not for a small fee you can use the pool right next door at Melati Cottages. The property is gated and highly secure.

Interaction with guests

We are on call almost 24/7 for our guests (within reason:). There is daily cleaning (with occasional days off for ceremonies or family time), and we will check in with regularly to see how we can make your stay more pleasant.

Other things to note

For the comfort of all our guests do not accept guests with children under 12 years old in the upstairs apartment, unless they are renting the entire house.

Please do not play music that can be heard beyond the bungalow; the rice fields are quiet and serene; noise carries deceptively far, and we like to be considerate of our neighbours ... then they are far more likely to do the same for us! Also no practicing or playing of musical instruments please. Headsets work best, and great for watching movies etc.

Check in is any time after 2:00 pm.

Breakfast or any other meals are not included.

For arrivals at the house at or after 9:00 pm there is a late check-in fee of Rp 150,000.

Children, unless babes in arms, do count as residents so we would appreciate it if you would count them in the number of guests. Thank you.

House Rules
Check in is anytime after 2PM

We welcome you and ask that you agree to these few requests before sharing our lovely house.

The rental includes Nano as a manager, there is a pembantu (helper) and gardener, and the houses are equipped with many of the family's personal belongings.
1. Before you use anything in the house e.g. juicer, towels, we ask that you be willing to replace anything that is damaged or lost. Everything will be in full working order when you rent the house, and we ask that it be that way when you leave.
2. We suggest you bring a photocopy of your passport, it is required by law that all visitors be registered, and this will eliminate the need for Nano to take your actual passport to the police station.
3. Please feel free to read our books, but please let them stay when you leave!
4. Nano will bill you for any provisions used up that were already in the house.
4. There is unlimited, high speed Internet access included.
5. This is a safe area, however we are not responsible for any valuables left in the house. Please keep your travel documents, money and any valuables in the safe provided.
6. Smoking is only permitted on the outside patios. Additionally, please don't dispose of your cigarette butts in the garden and be sure to always use an ashtray. Thank you for your consideration with this.
7. Please maintain quiet after 10pm, many of our other guests choose to go to bed early in order to make the most of the daylight hours.
8. The staff are of course the most important consideration, and we ask that you treat them with kindness and respect. Their duties are specific and include : Cleaning the house and maintaining the garden, or shopping for household requirements.

The staff will be available at the house for approximately 2 hours per day, in the morning, unless prior arrangements are made in advance. All the staff have families and commitments to the temple and community. If it is not convenient that they clean during their usual hours, then they will come the following day.

The staff are not paid or obligated to do anything beyond this, so kindly reimburse them financially for anything additional you ask them to do, and that they agree to, such as staying late, changing their hours, washing or mending your clothes, driving you anywhere on their motor-bikes, or running errands unrelated to the required shopping.

If you require laundry service, they can do this for you, or there is a local place with the same rates that they charge ... and fast service, there is a sheet with itemised prices in the house.

You will be provided with one large towel per person per stay/week, if you require extras we will be happy to provide them for the posted laundry rates.

Please make any and all arrangements for additional services through Nano.

If you require any food shopping in advance of your arrival, please let Nano know; a detailed accounting will be provided for you, and you can pay for this at check-in.

The staff has every Sunday off, and please be respectful if they on occasion need time off for ceremonies, these are a very important part of village life.

We have access to motor-bikes/scooters that can be rented for Rp 60,000 a day.

If you would like anyone to take you around the local area on their motor-bikes, the cost is 50,000 ($4+) rupiah per hour (min 50,000 rupiah).

Also if you require any personal errands run: the charge is 50,000 rupiah per hour, 1 hour minimum.

Please do not play music that can be heard beyond the bungalow; the rice fields are quiet and serene; noise carries deceptively far, and we like to be considerate of our neighbours ... then they are far more likely to do the same for us! Also no practicing or playing of musical instruments please. Headsets work best, and great for watching movies etc.

We are in the middle of the working rice fields and, occasionally usually for brief amounts of time, there can be issues with the electricity, internet or water. Please be be patient and understanding when this happens, it is a small price to pay for being in such a magical spot.
Also, the area is teeming with birds and wild-life, occasionally these critters might "trespass" ... they have no idea of what man-made boundaries mean. The staff cleans thoroughly daily, so be assured we move them on and there are no actual "residents".

This was our second time at the 2 Seasons and it was perfect again. The upper apartment is not as stylishly renovated as downstairs but it is very comfortable and good value. We only planned to use the lower flat this time but my father decide to join us so we booked upstairs too and he was very happy and relaxed there - it is ideal for extended family as the upper flat has a separate entrance but can use the garden and pool if booked with the lower flat. Nano is a great host, always friendly and responsive and we really appreciated his help with organising a driver.

Nano was a fantastic host and we absolutely adored the apartment. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The upstairs bedroom was beautiful and perfect for anyone looking for a hideaway in nature. Located in the rice fields of penstanen near lots of great restaurants and yoga studios and only a 15 min walk from central Ubud. Highly recommended!

This was our first experience with Airbnb. Nano met us at the airport. He was a kind and friendly host. He was very attentive to our needs. We enjoyed staying at the apartment. We spent many happy hours on the veranda. It was our first Balinese experience which is setting the tone for our continuing adventures. Thank you Nano for a wonderful stay in Ubud.

I loved my time at 2 Seasons. The apartment was just as presented. Roomy and airy. The views from the windows are full of greenery and one does certainly feel like you are in a tropical paradise (which you are !) I loved being elevated and the evening breezes were fantastic. All facilities of the apartment are great. I liked the location - close to everything but quiet as well. Great restaurants / cafes within easy walking distance. Nano was the perfect host - picking me up from the airport and always prompt and efficient with providing transport. I will be back!

2 Seasons was a great place to stay - I am glad I picked the place! The location is closed enough to Ubud town and far away enough to stay away from the buzz to enjoy the greenery and the natural environment that Bali has to offer. There are restaurants within a 5-10 min walk if you want to stay in the neighbourhood and not heading out to Ubud (which is only about a 15-20 min walk). Very nice this way. And the host, Nano, I have no complain! He is so fast to respond to your every request, always there for you and really makes you “feel like home” - he brought food for me when I was having a bad stomach for two days. I would definitely recommend this place.

The apartment was just as pictured. Very clean and bright, the kitchen had just what we needed to make small meals while we were there and the balconies where wonderful. The location is the perfect distance away from the super busy and loud centre of Ubud so you can relax in peace, but close enough that it's very easy and simple to get down to the market, restaurants or shops that you'd like to see. Nano was so incredibly helpful and communicated everything clearly and easily. If you needed anything he'd get it for you right away or help you in any way he could. I would stay here again no doubt, it was really a pleasure ^_^
