Gypsy Cottage is perfect for a family or group of friends. Officially only one bedroom, the cottage can sleep up to five people and is located conveniently only five minutes from central Ubud,
Tucked on the edge of the same ridge as the famous Indus Restaurant on Jl Sanggingan, you are completely private, but conveniently just across the road from Bintang Supermarket and the delicious French pastries at Cafe Moka.
You will relax right into your own little oasis at Gypsy. Fully renovated by an interior designer only a few months ago, Gypsy features a stunning infinity pool and divine open deck overlooking the Campuhan river.
The light streams into the large open plan living area (flatscreen cable TV, DVD and Indovision), which has spectacular views across the valley and the walking trails on the opposite ridge.
There is a terrazzo bathroom with sunken bathtub and a modern styled, fully equipped kitchen, which includes a washing machine - which you need never touch, as a housekeeping service comes with your rental!
Upstairs, the open plan bedroom has a spacious, comfy four poster bed and an enormous day bed - more than twice queen size - that can easily sleep 1adult or two children. For lazy evenings, this space is great for cuddling up with a good book.
Full service staff (gardener, maid and pool guy) are included with the property. WIFI installed.
TRANSPORT: A car and professional driver can be supplied at your cost, either by the hour or day, or for the duration of your visit. Airport pickup can be arranged, approximately $40.00 for the trip.
RESTAURANTS: Many within walking distance, including Mozaic, Indus, Bridges, KopyKat and the famous pork ribs at Naughty Nuris.
GALLERIES: in all directions.
Please use this cottage is if it were your own.
Interaction with Guests
I will be at Gypsy to welcome you and explain the details of the property, I am also on call via the mobile if needed urgently...you will also have access to the maid and drivers numbers.
Motor bike and/or car hire can be arranged, Gypsy also has a reliable driver who can take you around Ubud, or on any tour your are interested in.
Other Things to Note
The pool is directly next to the house and is not fenced, also the property is located on the edge of a ridge, so it would be unsuitable for very young children...
No smoking anywhere on the property. You are welcome to anything in the fridge or cupboards but replace it when you go.
What a lovely 1st experience with airbnb. The cottage is lovely and the view of the Campuan Ridge is to die for. Annie's cottage is so homely you feel that you're staying at a friend's place. Location is good with Bintang Supermarket & taxi rank across the road & a decent selection of good restaurants within easy walking distance, without having to go into Ubud Central. Owner Annie is always around if anything should arise & Wayan is there 8am - 4pm, 6 days a week to ensure all is well with the grounds, pool & cottage. Made (driver) is available by phone for any day trips / airport transfers etc. Would recommend him for anything - could not feel more secure than we did with his driving, and a lovely chap to boot! A lovely experience all round, thanks Annie, Wayan & Made
We had a wonderful 2,5 weeks here, it looks much better than on the photos! Annie is a great host, she makes you feel welcome and any minor issues we had were solved very quickly. The location of the cottage is great as well, just outside the touristy center of Ubud but with a large supermarket and ATMs just across the road. Only thing is the internet is a bit slow, but I think this is the same everywhere in Bali. Would love to stay here again!
Annie has excelled at the art of providing the perfect welcoming holiday home. She has a wonderful aesthetic sense and it is a real pleasure to relax in Gypsy cottage
Her particular brand of personalisation succeeds in creating a space that feels very comfortable, playful and the sense that you can have a little home away from home for your stay.
Her staff are wonderful, the open vista an added bonus considering the proximity of Ubud village and the nearby supermarket is another plus.
It is a wonderful find and highly recommended.

A friend and I stayed for one week at Gypsey Cottage, and it was everything we were expecting and more! Away from all the hustle-and-bustle and more touristy areas of Ubud, the cottage was a perfect retreat. Gorgeously decorated (the photos don't do it justice) and with a beautiful view. We were perfectly happy to spend our days hidden away at the cottage.
The staff were excellent. Made the driver was lovely and made sure he was available to us when required and the cleaner and gardner were unobtrusive and polite.
Though we didn't meet Annie until the end of our trip (we arrived quite late in the evening), she kept in contact to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay.
What a wonderful break!
The two of us recently spent two weeks at Gypsy Cottage in Ubud.
Having been to Ubud before, and needing some chill-out time, we knew where Gypsy Cottage was located, and it didn't disappoint! It was perfect - fantastic views from the deck, a lovely pool, comfortable, clean and tidy.
We love our own space, and like to self cater on holiday, so this was ideal. A house keeper and gardener visit every couple of days - very unobtrusive, but they keep things beautifully clean and tidy. Some decent eateries are nearby (The Elephant is great; and even the nearby local Barbeque Warung), and it's a short walk into Ubud town, or rice paddy walks.
We can also recommend Made's airport pickup service - the traffic can be a bit hectic, especially in the south of the island, so it was nice to have a good driver to take you from the airport right to the door.
It was a real wrench when the time came to leave, but hopefully we'll be back before too long...
Annie was a wonderful host - waiting for us in our very delayed arrival. Her place is gorgeous. The photos do not do it justice. Very conveniently located out of the hustle and bustle of Ubud centre it is very relaxed looking out over the jungle. Everything you need - super market, tastey restaurants, spas, walls in the rice paddies and and the fantastic blanco museum. Would stay here again in a heart beat. Thanks Annie for the use of your place. :)
Very charming villa, nice swimming pool, beautiful garden with wonderful view. The house is well located (15 min walk to the center of Ubud, 10 min walk to beautiful rice fields, and supermarket is very close). We had a very pleasant stay at gipsy cottage.
I am a young retiree, and have lived in Ubud for the past 7 years. My main interest is gardening which incorporates organics, composting and growing herbs and vegetables in my garden. Also very interested and involved in the recycling issue, rainwater collection and storage here in Bali. I have a crafty side too, so often have fabric, paints covering the floor whilst I plan something, which is usually outside the box. I love music, there are many places that have live bands in Ubud, from blues, reggae to jazz, you will often find me toe tapping somewhere in town.
