About this listing
This incredible property will make your family’s stay in Ubud unforgettable. With room for 14 people, our dream home in Bali is the perfect base for exploring Ubud and it’s surrounding areas. Get in touch!
This incredible property is at the end of a quiet lane in the quaint village of Nyuh Kuning in Southern Ubud, and sleeps up to 14 people, including three bedrooms in the main three-story house, a separate guest house that sleeps four, and two other sleeping rooms.
The property is a three-minute walk to Ubud's famous monkey forest, and from there, a five-minute walk into central Ubud.
The entire property is yours - including two structures, a main house with three bedrooms, and a guest house, with two guest rooms and a staff room.The house has some unique features which makes it ideal for families and large groups - including a copper bathtub perched on a balcony overlooking a river valley, a double shower, and a handmade bunk bed with play space in the kids room. Bedrooms have AC, though lovely breezes from the valley keep everything cool. The guest house has a queen size bed and newly made teak bunk beds. There's also a solid wi-fi connection.
The property features a massive salt water pool, a basketball hoop, and a badminton court. There's also an organic vegetable garden, and plenty of coconut trees full of young coconuts to keep you hydrated. The basics are also taken care of - there are mosquito nets on all the beds, nighttime security, and a full staff, including two gardeners, a cook, and two cleaning maids.
Interaction with Guests
If you stay at our house, it means we're away! Either back in Canada, or travelling somewhere in Asia.
A bit about us: We're an active Canadian family of 5 - three boys, the oldest age 16 (Emmet), and twins age 11 (Myles and Austin). Five years ago we relocated to Bali, and have been enjoying the change of pace and fresh air ever since. We love Bali, and love meeting new people.
During your stay, we're happy to suggest things to do, places to see, and interesting people to meet. Some of our favourite things to do are yoga classes, mountain biking, and visits to some of Bali's incredible temples. We can also connect you to a local driver, or help rent a scooter. So go ahead and splurge, and stay at a great house for families in Ubud!
Nyuh Kuning is in Southern Ubud, just below the monkey forest. It has been named the cleanest village in Indonesia several times in the past few years!
We love living here as it's quiet, beautiful, but still very close to Ubud.
The easiest ways to get around Ubud is on foot, by bicycle, by scooter, or by taxi (usually a private driver).
Other Things to Note
One of our favourite thing about the house is that the swimming pool is salt-water. Which means you don't get out of the pool smelling like chlorine!
We don't have a ton of rules, other than we ask guests to respect the property and staff who work here.
Our cook and house staff come with the reservation, but food costs are extra. Kadek has worked for us for many years, and will grocery shop and plan meals.
Alternatively, you can buy your own food and use the kitchen.
Smoking is not allowed anywhere inside the house.
No guests please.
The house was beautiful and charming. We liked all he rooms very much. The swimming pool gigantic. We did not have a chance to meet face to face with Peter but he has been very responsive on emails. Yo I has been a perfect host. She was very reactive, answered our questions timely, helped us organise our daily field trips and even organised a bday party for us.kadek is a talented cook. We had beautiful local food and we will remember and miss our breakfasts forever. The gardeners and the night guards were also very friendly and helpful.
Magnifique villa, staff très discret et efficace, le tout situé en plein coeur de Ubud.
The Hosts were amazing! Information asked was promptly replied prior to booking and staying. Communication was good during the stay too! Hosts were able to let us know about the neighbouring good restaurants and sites. Although we made late requests for breakfast throughout our stay, the host was able to provide us with breakfast which was delicious.
The Villa itself is amazing and is as described. Large, comfortable, beautifully decorated and conveniently located to tourist attractions.
I will definitely recommend both the host and the villa! Hope to be coming back in future!
Das prächtige und ausserordentlich beeindruckende im balinesischen Stil erbaute Haus mit Nebenhäusern und Pool liess unseren einwöchigen Aufenthalt unvergesslich werden. Yoni ist umwerfend freundlich und liebevoll und ihre zahlreichen helfenden und unterstützenden und sehr freundlichen und zuvorkommenden Angestellten machten aus dem Aufenthalt ein Ereignis sondergleichen, das uns immer in guter Erinnerung bleiben wird. Die gesamte Anlage ist südlich des umtriebigen Monkey Forrest von der Hauptstrasse zurückversetzt ruhig gelegen und bietet eine umwerfende Aussicht auf das bewaldete tropische Tal. Kadek's Dinner und Frühstück war super lecker, die Kinder nutzten den tollen Pool und mit den sehr netten und aufgestellten Drivern Wayan und seinem Schwager unternahmen wir tolle Ausflüge. Herzlicheb AllDank an alle, wenn immer möglich kommen wir hierhoin zurück!
We looked so much forward to our stay in this fantastic villa and everything exceeded our expectations. We were an australian and a danish family, 10 in all between 11 and 71 years old and everybody enjoyed the week we spent in this atmospheric house. If you want to be alone, there is a quiet corner, if you want to play there is basket, badminton and ofcourse the big pool, if you want to cook there is a well equipped kitchen. But who wants to cook, when you have the house cook Kadek around. She even came around and cooked our farewell dinner on her day off. Yoni was both before we arrived and while we were there very easy to get in contact with, and helped us arranging everything, we could possible ask for. If we ever get a chance, we will love to get back.
We had a wonderful stay here in July. The villa is very well equipped for families. We were two families travelling together and there was plenty of space and the pool was fantastic. Yoni is a great Manager and Kadek took care of all of our cooking needs which were quite particular due to children with food allergies. All of the staff were fantastic. I cannot recommend this place highly enough for families wanting to stay in a private villa in Ubud.
We stayed here for 2 nights as a family of 8 (5A3C) and our biggest regret........is that we couldn't stay longer!
Great location - conveniently located just a short 10min walk through or around Monkey Forest to Ubud town and yet peacefully away from the hustle and bustle.
Friendly and hospitable staff - Yoni, Kadek and the rest of the staff were always within reach and willing to help. Didn't meet the host Peter but he was always fast to respond to emails and kindly let us stay for 2 nights although it's short of the minimum stay.
Delicious food - Breakfast was scrumptious especially the banana pancakes prepared by Kadek. Chilli cafe, which is just outside the villa, also serves great food.
Cosy Villa and endless fun - my kids love the homely feel of the villa. The pool and the basketball hoop provided hours of fun. Plenty of Lego bricks to keep them occupied. They were also entertained by Cookie the dog and Kitty the cat.
Highly recommended! We'll be Back!
