My lovely home is set in the rice paddies of Penestanan, our artist's village on the edge of Ubud that has no car access or car sounds (but many sounds of geckos, roosters, frogs and birds) and still just minutes away from the centre of Ubud.
You can practice yoga overlooking the rice field in the large bedroom that opens up onto a balcony.
Penestanan now has its very own yoga studio, meditation center, two 5-star restaurants, funky Round Bar, raw food restaurant, fresh organic juice bar, Japanese health food, two cafe's and a bakery so you don't even have to go to Ubud, which is only 15 minutes walk anyway.
It's a perfect location to make day trips to various temples, Batur Volcano, rice terraces, woodcarvers village, museums and galleries.
My friendly housekeeper will come every morning and make you a delicious breakfast. She will also make the bed and clean the house daily. She is a treasure trove of local information and can help arrange a car and driver to take you sightseeing, and/or car or motorbike rental.
There is a swimming pool at a small quaint hotel down the path that can be used for a small daily charge.
The entire house.
Interaction with Guests
My housekeeper comes every morning to clean the house and prepare breakfast (you will purchase your own food - there is a supermarket within 15 min walk through the rice paddies.)
Penestanan is the most friendly and beautiful neighbourhoods of Ubud. I love all the lovely cafes and restaurants, nearby yoga studios, spas, and art galleries.
Local taxi stand is at the end of the path, but we are within walking distance to Ubud centre.
We can arrange a car rental, motorbike rental or a car and driver for daytrips around Bali. Almost anything of interest is within a couple of hours drive. Most less than that: Famous temples, volcanoes, Bird Park, Elephant Safari, White Water Kayaking, beaches and more.
Other Things to Note
We have a yoga mat, yoga blocks, and hand weights for your use. The hardwood floor upstairs is perfect for yoga practice, with the wonderful view of the greenery of rice paddies.
We have a massage table and will even give you a number for an amazing masseur who can come to the house..
Please don't smoke in the house, but it's ok to smoke on the porch if you like. Also be very careful with candles and incense, especially upstairs, which has hardwood floors and bamboo roofing.
