Interaction with Guests
We are often at home in Bali, and when we are....interact extensively with our guests who often become like members of our family.
Milo our pug is here when we are to entertain our guests as well.
The neighborhood is very convenient to everything in Ubud and is a microcosm of the best that Bali has to offer. A walk out to the rice fields will enable you to experience the daily life of the farmers in this agricultural community. Watch the ducks as they clean the rice fields and get them ready for a new crop; see locals washing their laundry in the streams; visit with local artisans in their homes and really get a sense of what Bali is all about!
There are cars and drivers that can be rented along the main road for trips into Ubud.
We also have a driver that can take you touring anywhere in Bali.
Some of our guests have opted to rent motor bikes or push bikes and that's something that we're able to arrange on their behalf.
We ask that you arrive before 4:00 pm as that is when Made' leaves for the day. If this is impossible we will need to make special arrangements.
My husband and I have been traveling to Bali for many years, and have owned Villa Sunrise, a house on the north shore since 2004.
Last year, when we retired, we realized that we could enjoy a much better life on the island of Bali, than we could in the United States.
So... we decided to move to Bali full time and build a home near Ubud, the cultural heart of the island. We started building in Oct of 2010...and lo and behold!, were finished 6 months later. Everyone (including ourselves) was amazed at how quickly we had completed our project.
We now have 4 houses in Penestanan Ubud and another in Tejakula on the north shore. All of them are for rent...and when everything is full...we travel off to other lands.
We have put a lot of care and attention into building our houses and making them as comfortable as possible, while retaining a Balinese aesthetic. Our hope is that others will appreciate them and feel the same way that we do.
