The Space

When rented as one space, this gorgeous, newly renovated villa easily sleeps 7+, has 2 bathrooms, and completely private use of a 7.5 x 4 meter saltwater pool.

In a gated property right on the edge of working rice fields, this home has great security, peace and quiet, and yet is within easy walking distance of countless restaurants (which also deliver!), and is only 1.5 km from the center of Ubud, any easy walk or short taxi ride.

UPPER FLOOR

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.

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

GARDEN FLOOR

Newly renovated, the lower floor of this 3 story home is single story with a lovely bright and airy open plan living space with a large bed and lounging area, a smaller separate sleeping space with a large single bed large enough for 2 children or one adult (with a private entrance but connected to the house via the bathroom), separate fully equipped kitchen and large, gorgeous open-plan bathroom. It has its own private walled, gated and fully landscaped garden, with a large (7.5 x 4 meters) saltwater plunge pool and a large spacious outdoor bale (suitable for dining or relaxing). Fully equipped kitchen, refrigerator, 2 burner stove, juicer, blender etc. Large open air bathroom has both a terrazzo tub and shower, walk in wardrobe. There is a queen bed, daybed, a large twin (big enough for 2 children), mosquito nets, hammocks, a safe and a floor fan. Can comfortably accommodate a family, or a couple and 1 single.

The 2 different parts of this home, can be rented separately or together, and they have separate secure entrances.When rented separately, the upper apartment does NOT have access to the pool.

For a full list of reviews please look under the tab "other property reviews" (next to the review tab at the bottom of this page). Since the house is more typically rented as 2 separate living spaces, all reviews found on there relate to this property.

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, 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.

******************

Very close to the main road, motorcycle parking available right at the entrance, yet completely screened from all traffic noises. Car Parking can be arranged. 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.

10% Service Charge will be added to all rental periods, to be paid in cash upon taking up residency.

This home is owned by a hard working Balinese family who have invested a great deal of work and love in its creation, and the price they ask is very fair. We ask that future guests do not negotiate on the price, and thank you in advance for not asking.

Daily cleaning, gardener and hi-speed wifi included.

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

Private pool, several private nooks for a large group. Wifi.

Interaction with Guests

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

The Neighborhood

Great restaurants, working rice fields, authentic village life, our guests are most welcome to any temple ceremonies. Local shops, strolls through the fields and village. Local artisans, galleries, yoga studio. Easy access to central Ubud, a 20 minute (1.5 km) stroll or easy taxi ride away.

Getting around

Scooters, taxis, bicycles, easy access to central Ubud by foot (1.5 km away).

We are happy to arrange airport transfers, we will meet you with a sign, and be there even if your flight is delayed. We always charge the going rate; currently 250,000 rupiah during the day, 300,000 rupiah after dark. This is very roughly $25 - $30.

Other Things to Note

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 practising or playing of musical instruments please. Headsets work best, and great for watching movies etc.

  • A Perfect Place

    We stayed at this villa for a week in March of this year & we loved it! Beautiful house, welcoming & very helpful hosts, 15min walk from the center on Ubud- it was very hard to leave in the end of our vacation.

    The airport pick up was arranged by the manager Nano who continued to be easy to reach & quick to deliver for the rest of our stay. He also arranged for our driver when we needed one & any questions/ requests we had were always promptly addressed. & every day we had a bowl of fresh rambutans right off the tree growing in our yard that our hosts picked!:-)

    We stayed on the ground floor of the villa & it was wonderful to have a pool just a few steps outside, it really helped with the heat:-) The location itself was very convenient- there were good restaurants just on the corner( local food, coconut bar, Indian, Thai & a very good raw food place about 5min walk, fabulous desserts:-)), affordable & good quality spa 2min away & a walk path through the village of the main road right across from the raw food place. It took about 15-20min to walk into the center of Ubud. We had our 2 year old girl with us & we couldn't use the stroller( there are hardly any sidewalks) & had to carry her in a backpack( in the heat!:-)) but it was manageable & very safe. If you can ride a scooter( we couldn't) getting around will be easier though the traffic can get pretty heavy in town during the day. We went to the beach a few times, there is one that's not busy usually about 30-40min away.

    If we come back to Bali we'll definitely come back to this villa!

  • On a passé une semaine à Ubud dans cette charmante maison qui est très bien placée, à moins de 10min à pied du centre ville.
    Le personnel de la maison est très accueillant, et il est possible de demander des services en toute confiance ( location de scooter, taxi, navette de/vers l'aéroport...).
    Je recommande cette location, vous passerez un très bon moment sur place, les yeux fermés!!!
