House Rules

THE BASICS: Sorry but you must speak some English or Indonesian. It is too difficult to share an open plan home, without a language in common. We love to help you here in Bali but it can't be done properly with only an online translator to help - we've tried :-(

No smoking inside the house (nor horrible butts left in the garden) and no pets. Definitely no drugs; you risk the death penalty for yourself and us!

WELCOME: Ibu Jen often invites friends for a meal at the weekend if she is home, and are you are very welcome to join her. Most nights, you can join her for a delicious dinner for a small fee. She is a great cook and happy to discuss the menu/ make sure you will enjoy it, but hers is "family" space - everyone eats the same.

ID PLEASE: We are required to give a photocopy of your ID to our local Indonesian police, so please provide one on arrival, or get your driver to take you to a photocopy shop on the way.

SECURITY DEPOSIT/ DAMAGE: You have been asked for a basic security deposit of $250; this will be returned to you by airbnb if nothing is damaged. The house will be inspected before you leave, so please be warned that an accurate fee for ALL DAMAGES will be charged, exceeding the security deposit if appropriate.

DOs and DON'Ts (Temples): If you plan on going to a temple, make sure you bring or borrow a sarong and sash, and - if you are a woman - a blouse that at least covers your arms to the elbow. In some temples this is not compulsory, but in all cases, it will show your respect for our local Hindu people's values and beliefs.

I enjoyed my stay at Jen's house very much. It's a unique house with an open concept, and I did have complete privacy while I was staying up at the loft. Jen mentioned that a couple of guests would like to have a locked door (Jen and I even explored how a door can be added) but personally I don't think it is necessary it will take away the uniqueness of the loft! As for the noise from neighbors including the friendly animals, the roosters, duckies and doggies it is very special experience too. But if you don't enjoy the noise from the non humans friends a pair of ear plugs will solve the issues. The neighborhood has lots to offer including a must-go restaurant up the street called Ojas Prana, it has the best vegan food in Ubud. It is quiet and you don't have to pay premium prices compare to the well known places in Ubud. Jen can recommend plenty of things for you to do, just let her know what you like. She's definitely is your most resourceful friend in Ubud. Highly recommend Jen's house.

I spent an amazing period in Jen's house. It felt immediately like at home and always got pampered with Ketut's breakfasts...she's amazing! I really enjoyed the time in Jen's house and am missing it a lot. I definitely reccomend Jen's place to everyone who would like to experience a typical balinese house far from the caos of the village

Jens place is a true escape away from the shackles of western society. Set within a local village, away from the main buzz of central Ubud, amongst the rice fields. Niketuts company and morning breakfast were wonderful, along with the uplifting chats and smiles to start the day. The bamboo walls, gecko visitors and secret spiral stair-cased bedroom made me feel like I was staying in my own jungle treehouse, the stuff of childhood dreams. Kungs wonderful knowledge and friendly support whilst there helped to solidly my new love for Bali and Balinese culture. I didn't get to me Jen in person sadly, however she was always there at the end of a message to help in any way she could. I honestly couldn't recommend more a place to stay in Ubud if you're looking to really escape from every day modern life. My weeks visit could not of gone more smoothly, I only wish I didn't have to leave. Until next time.

Jen was amazing. Cheerful and helpful, happy, full of suggestions and invitations. Kung the driver was prompt, funny, and also very helpful. Ketut was nice to see every morning and made many delicious meals! Loved how open the house was. Not a private place at all as the walls are open but that's what makes it so beautiful! Sunny, breezy, and open. Very noisy at night with The roosters, dogs, chirping Geckos and motor bikes but that didn't bother me much. Bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper! Having a motor bike is pretty essential because it's about an hours walk into the center of town (or ten-ish minutes on a motor bike) but beautiful walk or drive nontheless. Jen set It up so the bike was delivered when I did! $5 USD /day. How convienent. Lovely place! I would recommend to a friend. Thanks for the great stay!

Jennifer is a very warm and welcoming host. She had arranged airport pickup for me and as an inexperienced traveller she went out of her way to assist me with communications and a banking drama. It was lovely staying in a smaller village outside of Ubud, meeting locals and being transported each day to my retreat on the back of a bike with the lovely Ketut.

It is my first experience with Airbnb and with all things considered, everything went very well. Also the host Jen was very responsive! I really love the house where I stayed. It is very cosy and rustic. I felt very much at home and I enjoyed waking up to the sound of the roosters each morning:) I wish I could have stayed there longer! I am sure that I would stay there there again!

Your host Wayan Jen has lived in Ubud for almost ten years - she's our semi-permanent guest! She welcomes you and makes sure you are comfortable and content.

Jen is a traveling Aussie who lives mostly in Bali, which has part of her heart; another part in New Zealand, where she was born, and all of it wherever her two sons and her sisters are. It's great that she's often around to help with ideas for great travel around Indonesia. (Even when she's away, you can chat with her here, via airbnb).

Jen works in "Disaster". She's just finished a year in the Solomon Islands as a Communication Adviser for the National Disaster Management Office. In December 2013-January 2014 she volunteered in the Philippines, helping there after the horrific super-typhoon. And before that she did a 15 month stint to help an Indonesian non-profit expand their youth centre here in Bali, and set up another one in post-tsunami Aceh, at the western end of the country.

Here in Bali, if you want to try some Ubud nightlife, ask Jen. When she's in Bali, she loves dancing, especially partner dancing - Swing, Modern Jive, Salsa - and occasionally getting up with a local band to sing a song or two. There are many places to find good nightlife in Ubud.

For Jen, "a stranger is a friend you haven't met yet".
