PERFECT FOR COUPLES:
Casa Raja is a private residence, situated next to (and with beautiful views of) the rice fields of Ubud.
The location of Casa Raja is superb. Walking down the little path that leads to our door, you'll stroll past newly planted rice fields, typical local homes and luxury villas. That's why we love this area! The mix of expat, local and visitor is so perfect.
WHY CASA RAJA?
This is one of the only properties in the popular neighborhood of Penestanan that is set up for the full enjoyment of your family.
LARGE, OPEN PROPERTY
You won't feel closed in on this property. Unlike many villas, our space has a huge garden/play yard that opens to rice field views. It feels expansive! And all of it is viewable from the open air home.
You'll love feeling the breezes while lounging in the main living area, a covered open air space that includes a living room, Balinese style dining room and brand new kitchen. You can spend hours lounging on the comfy oversized sectional made of woven water hyacinth while the kids splash in the pool.
We are located in the highly sought after and convenient neighborhood of Penestanan. The neighborhood is within walking distance to downtown Ubud and has a plethora of restaurants, spas, etc.

Master Bedroom: Queen Bed and Day bed
2nd Bedroom: Bunk beds: Queen on bottom, twin on top.
2 new bathrooms. The master bath has a beautifully tiled shower unit. The kids bathroom has a bathtub/shower combo and the lovely addition of a kids sized sink so the little ones don't have to use a step stool.
It's a comfortable space. The living, dining and kitchen area are open air. The bedrooms and bathroom are fully enclosed, but have large sliding doors that you can leave open at night to breathe in the cool night air of the Bali mountains. We have several fans around the home for your comfort.
We have 3 green areas that surround the home. A huge side yard (which is rare in Ubud) begs children to play in the bamboo fort or jump on the trampoline, a private blue swimming pool is perfect for a quick cool off and the entry yard makes for a wonderful welcome home.
The yard engages young and old. And we have extensive veggie gardens, banana & fruit trees.
The cultural capital- Ubud- is just a three minute drive or 10 minute walk to center of Ubud.
Our staff of three will make your stay relaxing. We have a housekeeper, cook and night security guard that will take care you. Full, delicious Breakfast included and prepared for you fresh each day!

There is no public transport in Ubud, but a taxi to town will only cost $3 or less. Or you can simply stroll the 10-15 minutes and enjoy the sites, stop at the many restaurants and warungs along the way.
Included in your stay is a daily breakfast of local fruit, Bali coffee or tea and your choice of eggs and/or Bali pancakes. If you feel like spending a relaxing day at Casa Raja, you can order lunch or dinner in (most restaurants deliver) OR hire our incredible cook to prepare a meal for you. There are several delicious restaurants within a 2-3 minute walk of Casa Raja. Great pizza, curries, chicken satays, raw food and authentic Indonesian food are just a few steps away.
If all the above resonates with you, then you've found your place in Ubud.

We have recommendations for onsite massages and babysitting / childcare as well.
Interaction with Guests
We will not be present while you are staying at Casa Raja. We will be traveling elsewhere ourselves, but intend for you to have a lovely stay. Our staff will treat you with the kindness only experienced in Bali.
What we love about Penestanan:
It is an eclectic mix of local, expats and visitors.
Everything is within walking distance (great restaurants, spas, yoga), but the path the villa is one is serene.
There are cheap taxis to take you into town if you don't want to walk.
Hire a motorscooter for the ease of traveling around Ubud. Motorscooter rentals are $6/day. Cheap and easy and super convenient.
Other Things to Note
Casa Raja is one of the only homes in Penestanan that has an abundant amount of open space for you to enjoy. Kids love to run around our large yard, jump on the trampoline and play in the fort.
Adults love it because of the built in pool fence that can be hidden and easily pulled out if you need it, the full service staff that will do all housekeeping, babysitting and cooking if you wish.
No smoking, please.
Our family of four had a lovely stay at Casa Raja. Sabina was a joy to communicate with--responding to the smallest questions within moments. The staff of Casa Raja were more than pleasant. Purnama's breakfasts were great, and Jaro, the King's nanny, was fabulous with our children, allowing us a couple of massage/shopping outings and a nice dinner sans kids. The villa itself is exactly as the photos suggest--open, clean and airy. The aircon for the bedrooms was adequate. Location was great--many nice restaurants and massage clinics right on the ally, and the walk to Jl. Raja Ubud only took about 15 min. All in all, a wonderful stay surrounded by lovely people!
We had a wonderful month at Casa Raja. The Villa was so perfect in every way –it was very clean and nice and had a lovely and homely feeling. It was perfect for our two children age 1 and 5 – they both had a great time and felt at home with the toys, trampoline and bamboo playhouse. The staff was amazing, the best we have met on our 3 month trip to Bali, so friendly and helpful in every way, we already miss them. And the location was perfect!!! So close to everything in Penestanan, warungs, Cafes, art shops etc. We can strongly recommend this Villa – especially if you travel with children. Its was just a very unique place and we hope we will be back.
Sissel and family
Sabina was fantastic at making us feel welcome and did everything possible to ensure our stay was lovely. Parnarma, Jero and all the wonderful staff made the visit all the more memorable. We felt at home from the moment we walked in. If you are lucky enough to stay at Sabina's home, make sure you ask Parnama to make dinner one evening. Her cooking was wonderful and some of the best food we ate on our Bali trip. Thanks Sabina for sharing your home with us.
We had a amazing time at Sabinas Villa, it has to be the most family friendly stay we have had in Bali..the pool is Fab and the gates make peace of mind. The toys kept our kids entertained for hours and they lived the fort and tramp. Staff were super friendly and helpful and a babysitter on hand who was great with the kids a bonus. The location is perfect, away fom the hussel of town with a amazing Warang that can do take outs a few meters away and we almost lives at Alcemy Raw cafe up the road, also a driver with the use of Sabrinas Baby carseat made pic ups and a day trip to the safari park a breeze, we will be back! Thank you so much
Sabina's house is beautiful and comfortable. A dream for families with a pool, a kids garden and toys. On top Sabina's staff was really nice and helpful. I highly recommend staying at this house!
Staying at Bona House was excellent in all aspects - Sabina was extremely prompt and helpful in making the booking and arranging airport pickup. The staff at the villa were great with our kids (aged 2 and 3 months) and the layout of the place (connecting bedrooms), the pool (shady area over shallow bit all day) and the garden were ideal for us. Our 2 year old son loved the garden with the climbing frame, frogs, lizards and butterflies. Location-wise, there is a good warung about 30 seconds away for meals and Penestanan village (10 mins walk) has decent coffee, patisserie and restaurants. It is also only a few minutes in a taxi to Ubud. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone (especially if you have young kids).
The villa is in a very nice neighborhood, quite and lush. Love the garden and open space inside the villa. My least favorite is the bathroom and the facility host provided. The towles were very dirty and we got only 3 sets for the 5 of us. We stayed for 4 nights and no service to change clean towles. The helpers were very nice. However, we were a bit intimated at the beginning because the host did not provide any information and we got to orientate ourselves to things, and figure out who is who and what to do. We did not receive any communication from the host during our stay. Overall, it is a very nice villa! I would recommend the host to provide a bit more service as a vacation house.
