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.
My family stayed with another family at this amazing house for a week.
Don't expect five star luxury, but if you're after an unique experience in the most divine location than I would highly recommend this property. It seriously feels like you are living in a treehouse in the jungle.
The other thing about his property is the location. Being just south of Monkey Forest, you are far enough away from the busyness (yes it is busy) of Ubud, but close enough that you can comfortably walk or even quicker if you hire a scooter.
The staff are all amazing and Yoni (the Manager) is a absolute gem.
We had some bad luck with power black outs, but that's in Bali right; the staff responded the best they could under the circumstances.
Then there was Kadek our Chef, wow, you would stay there for her food! She cooked breakfast for us every morning which was a combination of both Wester & Indonesian. She also cooked 3 Devine Indonesian dinners for us with leftovers for the following day.
We were fortunate enough to meet Peter the Owner, & it was great to learn about his time in Ubud & his approach to his staff; he genuinely cares for their well being.
On the whole the experience was memorable & we would stay here again.
The house was absolutely amazing, we had 10 adults and 1 child and there was ample room. Yoni and her staff were great. Highly recommend this amazing place and can not wait to return.
The villa is charming and rustic. Some nook and corners maybe up for some repairs but the beauty and personality of the place makes you overlook it.
Yoni the host is excellent and makes all effort to any of your requests. The breakfast cook makes excellent banana pancakes and prepare an awesome BBQ if you request it.
The salt water pool is most amazing. It is deep enough on one end to dive in and shallow enough on the other for toddlers.
Treat the place with love and it will love you back.
This house was a dream. It is exactly as it looks in the photos, and even as you enter the grounds, you feel like you're arriving to a mansion in a reality show. Yoni, the property manager, was a gem and super easy to correspond with. Her husband, Koming, is a first class professional driver. Definitely recommend using him to go anywhere. We always had breakfast at the house and dinner just once, but the cooks made enough food for the 6 of us to eat in 3 meals. At times we felt like we were living in the wild, with the occasional rat, bat, monkey, and geckos running through, but it made for the best stories. The area is quiet, but walking through the monkey park to get to the shopping district was fantastic. I highly recommend staying here.
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!
