This is a master bedroom suite located in downtown Ubud Bali. Super-close walking distance to the dancing events and restaurants in Peliatan at night, a 50 foot pure stone pool to swim in during the day. Walking on marble floors inside or the shaded garden outside, you are secluded yet close to the action and charm only Ubud has to offer. Amazing for a single person or couple. Perfect for a family get-together or group retreat. Make your visit for two weeks or a year. If extra rooms are needed the Villa has accommodations for a grand total of eight with two in each bed. The Villa is just about 7023 square feet total.
Many of our guests will do a quick nine minute walk over for classes at the Yoga Barn. Little reflexology shops do a great hour long foot massage nearby or have our professional Bali masseuse come by when ever you want for a great one hour Balinese full body massage in your room or poolside. All the choices are yours.
We have so many amazing stories of guests getting here and extending their stay due to how nice they feel it is. They just don't want to leave! Truly this is our best complement and lets us know we have done things right.
One of the great aspects here is that everything can be done with a reasonable budget in mind.This has allowed many guests to enjoy long four to six month stays. Many of our long-term health conscious guests found going out and finding super-healthy food and making it at home was the ticket. If you don't feel like cooking and don't want to go out there are a great choice of quality delivery options available.
The Villa is really all about choices and options! You just choose as you go . No need to worry about stuff now.
The best part is you have a clean, quiet and safe home to stay at while your on the Island. You can make your visit really any type of visit you want. Some make it an art purchasing trip, some make it a cloths purchasing vacation while others are getting into that special authentic dancing and music only found on the island of Bali. Some guests make a food tour of the Island!
If just spending peaceful quality time by yourself or with loved ones, you'll not find a better location.
Hanging out reading at the pool has also been popular. Really you decide to make your trip as adventurous or relaxing as you want, all without the busy traffic of staying in an expensive crowded hotel. Days and Nights are quiet and peaceful with only the sounds of the birds around. If it does get too quiet, live music is always being played at a small outdoor club in quaint downtown Ubud minutes away!
Transportation is available directly from the Villa any day for daily adventure scenic drives to any location on the Island. Up to five can enjoy the day together in a new fully air-conditioned tour-van at a super price of $50 usd a day! He is always right on time too!
With many thoughtful design elements there are truly no rooms in Ubud like these. We welcome you to make this Island home your home.
Our housekeeper is a wonderful cook making much of the local dishes for our guests. Seven days-a-week from 8am until 4pm we have great local culinary delights. From a simple Balinese Vegetable Omelet with Potatoes on the side for breakfast, to exotic spicy Sumatra food for lunch or dinner, the choices are truly fantastic. The Chicken Curry with Potatoes is some of the best I have had in competition with many of the finer restaurants in downtown Ubud. The list of exciting authentic dishes to try is staggering. The addition of local spices can be dialed in also, making the food perfect for any one palette. We are also really into obtaining much of the local fruit on a daily basis. There are unique ripe Green Oranges, Mini Pineapples and a choice at times of twenty different variations of local bananas. Purple Mangosteen is a wonderful and super healthy fruit to try here on the Island. The local traditional market across the street typically has a wide selection of these wonderful fruit items for our housekeeper to buy for you every morning.
It does not get any better than this!
A healthy diet here at the Villa is both cost effective and fun. Local Red and White Dragon Fruit, Snake Fruit and Star Fruit are in season and obtainable a good portion of the year. We have also planted many exotic fruit trees on the property.
The dinning process is actually pretty simple for our guests. You make food choices for the day and the ingredients are purchased fresh for you that morning. You pay just the local prices for the food plus a small tip for the chief. The process results in a win-win situation providing exciting ways to experience the local traditional food in high quality with prices even better than even the local low-cost restaurants. Dinning in is super easy and cost effective as well as super healthy. Truly this is one of the greatest additions to the lifestyle at the Villa and providing an educational and unique dinning moment at home if you decide not to go out.
All and all we feel we are offering a very flexible and complete Bali experience, perfect for folks new to the Island or the seasoned return guest. We welcome you to enjoy some of the best Bali Island has to offer. Let us know what your needs are, and we will do our best to accommodate your stay.
Stayed for a month in this lovely space while doing my yoga teacher training - Gregory and Sak Ming are great hosts , friendly and offered lots of support and information. Located in a lovely local neighborhood. Dayu who helps out is divine , great cook , so helpful, a joy. The place is comfortable ( excellent bed ), and its like having your own private pool . I was very happy to spend my month there and reccommend it if you want an alternative to staying at a hotel or guest house.
Actually, it is my first time to use Airbnb and I feel so lucky to meet Sak Ming and Gregory. the house is so clean, comfortable and I like the style of the decoration.
They are a perfect host knowing how to create a friendly atmosphere. They have such a welcoming heart! It was easy to feel at home, having breakfast when I was ready (after yoga at the yogabarn). lovely Dayu created a delicious breakfast according to my wishes. Will stay here again for sure! I am looking forward to seeing you again. Thanks for all!
I stayed with Greg & Sak Ming during my month long yoga teacher training course @ Yoga Barn. Their house is 10 minutes (walking) from the studio so for my purposes it was very conveniently located. The home is in a quiet neighborhood that is close enough to all the restaurants, attractions, etc. but also tucked away enough for me to feel like I got a flavor of the local culture and way of life in Ubud.
The house is beautiful and my room was very spacious and comfortable, but most importantly, Greg and Sak Ming are the most hospitable hosts! They were always available for me to ask questions (directions, booking a massage, etc) and even invited me to attend local events with them (the Ogoh Ogoh parade on Nyepi and Sak Ming's grandmother's cremation ceremony, to name a few). I feel so lucky and grateful for them and the side of Ubud that they showed me!
The most amazing part of the house for me, however, was Dayu, the brilliant housekeeper. She was like my Bali mother and I will forever cherish my time spent with her. She cooked for me, cleaned my room, took my laundry, took me to get juice when I was sick, and picked me up every night on her scooter to drive me home.** I really don't know what I would have done without her! I wish I could have taken her with me in my suitcase :)
Overall, I had a lovely stay in Ubud and I have only wonderful memories and gratitude for Sak Ming, Greg, and Dayu. Thank you thank you!
**Note: these services are an additional fee paid directly to Dayu, but a very affordable fee ;)
Greg and Sak Ming are both super helpful and make life easy, the location is perfect and it's really as good as it looks in the pictures.
So happy here I decided to extend my stay a few more months!
I very much enjoyed my stay at Greg's home. It's absolutely beautiful and a close walk to the yoga barn as well as other areas of Ubud. Greg and his wife were always available to help me with any questions I had about the island and where to go. When I go back to Bali, I will definitely stay here again! Great experience :)
This is a most impressive place to stay, the house is big, the rooms are generous, the bathroom is great and the garden and the pool are fantastic. I really enjoyed my stay. Most places in Ubud are easily walkable, the hosts were generous with time and tips and advise. I can really recommend a stay at the place of Sak Min and Gregory especially as there are no problems with communicating in English.
Greg was a very helpful host and his property was beautiful. I was doing my yoga teacher training in Bali and this place was a perfect haven to retreat to and enjoy the pool at. I got picked up and dropped off to the airport through the driver Greg organized for me. The pictures seen here were exactly what the place looked like - no surprises, just more beautiful in real life. I would gladly go back and refer friends to this place as it truly is a gem.
Thanks for the remarkable stay in Bali Greg!
The villa and the room are beautiful and spacious. The swimming pool is a dream, you feel so relaxed after a swim in this gorgeous natural environment. The hosts are lovely, caring and have beautiful positive energy. I was doing a yoga teacher training at the Yoga barn and the place is 10 minutes walk from the back of the barn so that was ideal.
The cook, Dayu, has a beautiful heart and always put love in the meal she cooks for you. She can cook anything you like without too much spices. I advice the salad with the gorgeous pesto dressing, the banana yogurt, the chicken sate...
If I go back to Ubud, I would go back there because I feel so welcomed, like at home.
This is a very beautiful and comfortable villa to stay in, Greg and Sakming are both very caring people, making sure that everything is fine with me everyday. The villa is located about 10 to 15 minutes walk from Ubud center, so it will be more convenient to get around if you have a bicycle or scooter. The only thing that I think it needs improvement is to train the gardener properly which is also the maid to do more thorough cleaning all around the house, especially the kitchen area. This is a fairly new maid they have hired recently and I have already seem some improvement on him while staying here. I've had a wonderful time staying with Greg and Sakming and would love to come back and stay with them again next time.
