About this listing
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 a few 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.
As with all traditional rural Balinese villages, Kumbuh has animals meandering around and ceremonies taking place. Women are making offerings, men are fluffing their cockerels, and children and running with kites. Wander through and you will be greeted with smiles and waves.
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 for a small additional cost, 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.

Staying in Megan's house is an unique experience that you don't want to miss in Ubud. The whole loft interacts well with the environment and makes the stay so peaceful and calm.
Came here with 6 of my friends for team building, can't think of any better place for it. The place is very spacious and well designed. Secluded yet only ~15 mins away from the Ubud crowd.
Dont have a chance to meet Megan in person, however she is very responsive to all of our needs. Wayan and Made are very nice and helpful
A recommended place for those seeking sanctuary
Our family had a wonderful holiday staying in Ubud at Megan's place. We had 6 adults and 4 kids. The pool was great and the space very peaceful. The house design is impressive, open plan and relaxing with views out over the rice paddies. All the staff were wonderful especially the ladies Wayan, Kadek and Made making amazing breakfasts and dinners for us that were some of the best food we had in Bali at great prices.
Megan was quick to respond to any requests and we were easily able to organise drivers into town / rent scooters etc. when walking around Kumbuh village everyone was smiling and welcoming. Thanks again Megan for everything.

总的来说，这边房子还行吧~不要幻想是豪宅啥的，但非常有特色。另外就是交通是真心蛮不方便的。而且，一定要用他们的司机。顺带说一句，Pak Allo 人还蛮不错的，但说英语时的口音还是蛮重的。Pak Ketut发音比较好，人也还好，家就住在Megan的对面。我们还叫了Pak Allo的表弟包车，但我们不喜欢他。
My family and I absolutely loved staying here! There were 7 adults and 2 small children under 2 and the house was perfect. Plenty of room for all of us and safe for the little ones. We were welcomed by the staff Made, Kadek and Wayan who added such a caring touch to our stay. They were our bali family while we were there and we were all sad to say goodbye. We asked them to cook some meals throughout the week, breakfast and dinners, and this made it so easy with the kids. The food was unbelievably delicious and they were so kind as to custom some foods so to avoid my food allergies. Organise a driver when you get there so you can take trips to central Ubud. A bit of pre planning is needed when there's a big group. The village was also welcoming and the local children were so much fun. Thanks to Megan for designing such an aesthetically amazing place!! And your help in the lead up to our trip. We loved it and if the chance arrises again we'd have no doubt in revisiting.
Where to begin. I cannot express in words my experience. I've been to Ubud
4 times and each time different. I was celebrating a special birthday with 8 of my closest friends and decided to stay at Megan's home instead of a hotel. We all had an amazing time. Staying I a local village made it all the more special. Megan, Jason and the entire staff are very special. If you have the privilege to stay at her home you should. I only hope that our paths will cross again. All the best in life Megan!!!
About the Host, Megan
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.
