A lofty designer project, this 4000sq foot, 6bedroom tropical dream has been the backdrop to films, music videos and art exhibits. For families, groups & boutique retreats seeking style, comfort and tranquility, we invite you into our island paradise
This architecturally sumptuous family home is nestled in the emerald green rice fields minutes from the heart of mystical Ubud. A blend of New York loft style, Javanese antiques and french farmhouse comfort, our home is meant to be enjoyed with friends and family.
Tropical gardens surround the pool and farmers meander by tending to rice and ducks. Tranquil. Beautiful and decadently comfortable. Stay as long as you can and let yourself sink into the magic of our island home.
(Sleeps 11 adults and 4 children)
Our home is your home. The house is fully staffed and we will help you in any way we can. Please help yourself to anything you find in the kitchen. There are children's toys, books and games. We can arrange cars, drivers and motorcycles for you. You will find a local phone to use while you are here.
Interaction with Guests
Sometimes we're in Ubud and sometimes we are abroad, but our staff are always at the house. Ibu Made, Ibu Wayan and Ibu Kadek manage the house and Pak Wayan is our full-time gardener.
Ubud is the arts and culture center of Bali. Every day ceremonies and offerings are part of daily rituals, and village life is taking place as it has for generations. Our house is tucked in the rice fields behind the small village of Kumbuh, and only minutes to the center of Ubud where you will find temples, the Royal Palace, nightly performances, yoga, markets, boutiques and some of the best dining in Bali.
We can arrange a full time driver to take you whereever you wish, or help you rent motor bikes, push bikes or a car. Bali is extremely easy to navigate and we can help you to plan tours all over the island.
Other Things to Note
The house is fully staffed with maids who will clean each day, make your beds, prepare meals, babysit children (extra fee) and help with shopping. Our staff our like members of our family and will do just about anything to help you have the best stay possible.

The loft has two separate rooms which overlook the main living space, but once you are tucked up there you have visual privacy from the rest of the house. It’s actually my favorite place to sleep, the views and breezes are oh-so Bali.
The villa can easily sleep 11 adults in beds and 3 children (benches in Kebun room and Sunrise room. There is an extra mattress tucked away that can be set up as well. Please ask in advance about extra beds.

The home was (email hidden)ally spacious, & uniquely designed for Bali. The five of us had a lovely time, &,I would recommend it as a place to stay. Easy communication with Megan & she was kind enough to give us late check out on the day we left. Thanks Megan ))
It was our family first trip to Bali and we had chosen this villa for its total number of room at reasonable price. There were 10 adults and 4 kids in my family occupying this big villa for 4 days 3 nights.
We ordered the English breakfast menu which is highly recommended by other guests and was prepared by the three awesome staffs. We enjoyed all the 3 days menus very much. We even asked "our chefs" to cook a local dinner on our last night of stay. We finished all the dishes with thumbs up at a reasonable price too. A big Thank you to the three young and friendly lady staffs.
Those guest who used to sleep in an air conditioning room must take note there is no aircond unit on the lofts. But there are stand fans and table fan provided.
Our children were having lots of fun in the unique designed private pool.
Do hire the driver recommended by Megan due to her villa location. Megan has been very responsive to my requests and inquiries.
We have no regret with our decision to stay in Megan's villa.
Meg was so helpful from the get go. Great communication, prompt replies and easily teachable during our stay.
The place is perfect. Our group felt completely at ease and the girls were so lovely and great with our younger children.
We loved it all. Can't wait to return!
Well what could you say about this villa, words dont describe it well enough.The location was great , just far enough out of Ubud to really take in the quiet surrounds ,but not that far away that you can still get a beer or cocktail in the many pubs in ubud. Made, Kadek and Wayan were superb they made our stay that little bit more like home with their warm and accomodating nature, we would recomend the villa to all our friends and families..We didnt get to meet up with Megan , but her work behind the scenes was excellent arranging ice cold drinks and nibblies for our very late arrival, thanks to all the staff at NYC Loft we will be back again regards Rob
We loved this place! The loft like villa is stunning and so relaxing, wish we could have stayed a little longer. The staff is super friendly and dinner and breakfast were very good. Would love the come back some day!
After staying in Nusa Dua for a week, our big family reunion moved to Ubud, to Meg's lovely house. The village, which is only 5km from Ubud is not touristy and has a local feel. Although the road is filled with pot-holes but the locals are very welcoming. Meg's house is behind a small path away from the road. It has a very welcoming feel to it. It has a well-equipped kitchen that's great to cook meals. The staff were very genuine and friendly. The bedrooms were beautifully designed and the beds were the most comfortable during our entire trip.
Only thing is the walls are a bit thin and you can hear people talking in the living room, bring ear plugs if you sleep light or get up late.
Bali rental car is just north of the school. We rented from them from their website and didn't know they were next to Meg's house! They rent cars 23 USD per day and motorbikes 40k per day. Make sure to get your int'l license to avoid police fines.
We really enjoyed our time at Meg's house. It's a great place for families or close friends.
I am a Canadian who has been living in Ubud for the past 6 years. I work in holistic wellness and I write screenplays and build outrageous structures in my free time. I read tarot cards, love to cook and entertain and think Ubud is simply the most inspiring place to experience everything. I came here with my 4 year old son seeking community and an opportunity to live life with more passion and play, and I can't imagine anywhere else I would rather be.
