The Space

Villa Damee is beautifully appointed and located only 10 minutes out of Ubud, next to rice fields. It is very large and spacious and set in a quiet, peaceful rural area near Pejeng village. The master king size 1 brm is very spacious, air conditioned and beautifully appointed. Free Wi-Fi throughout villa. Your bathroom is luxurious - a goddess shower and river stones underfoot. We own the 2 rice paddies next door, which adjoins the World Heritage listed river and nearby there are many ancient temples to explore. It is a very special place. To get a feel for the villa, please read the guest comments on (website hidden)

At the 1 Brm rate you get the entire villa all to yourself. We simply lock off the other 2 rooms.

Full spa menu. We offer full spa and massage treatments at Villa Damee.

COOK: The villa comes with 2 cooks. Breakfast is served every day at your leisure from 7.00am. If you don't surface till 2.00pm - no worries. For lunch and dinner Wayan and Nuoman are both fabulous cooks and the lunches and dinners are outstanding (please see the guest comments on our website). Lunch and dinner is around US$4 per meal - local cost only. Everything cooked fresh and the ingredients are bought daily from the market. For eating out there are very good restaurants in Ubud ( 250) and its only 10 mins away. A driver/vehicle is avail on call to take you into Ubud (local cost only $7).

What is special about the Villa Damee experience is how close you are to nature, the peace and tranquility of the villa, which one guest described as "zen-like" and the beautiful staff, who take care of every little detail.

DRIVERS: We have 2 drivers. A local driver who will run you into Ubud, on request and Dana and his team, who take you out on all day excursions riding elephants, white-water rafting, visiting the volcanoes, a beach day - whatever you choose. I email all our guests a fantastic tour suggestion itinerary. If you fancy a spiritual tour, just ask me by email and I will organise.

Dave and I have put together the "Best of Ubud" and with our local knowledge and guidance we will guarantee you will have a very special holiday and an Ubud experience that will be memorable.

We are very passionate about helping the local people, and we support an orphange, which Dana can take you to if you like.

Donations of rice is gratefully accepted (and maybe a teddy bear). We also work with a local school and if you want to teach English see the staff, or email me before hand. I also volunteer teach at the local elementary school every week.

Welcome to the Villa Damee experience. It is very memorable and special and please read the latest guest comments on our web site. Stephanie and Dave, New Zealand/Australia ex pat owners, residing in Ubud, Bali.

It is our pleasure to host you.

  • My family had a wonderful stay at Villa Damee.

    The Host
    Stephanie is very diligent and helpful. Her replies to questions was quick and gave clear answers. She even took the trouble to call me during my stay and assisted to arrange a last minute transportation.

    Location
    It is a bit off the beaten path in a traditional Balinese village. the villa is surrounded by rice padi. it will be great view when the padi is green or gold. it is about 10 minutes by car into Ubud town.

    The rental is inclusive of airport pick up so there is no rick of getting loss in the night. Ms. Dewi was very cheerful. The cold towels and drinks on the van really help to start the vacation for everyone in the family.

    The Villa
    The house is very well maintained. welcoming living area is spacious and relaxing with the big day bed. a good size swimming pool will excite kids and grown ups :) the garden is very nicely designed with ponds and water features. The breakfast is basic toasts and coffee. Suggest to order the Nasi Goreng, the in-house chefs do really good cooking.

    The rooms
    The rooms at the ground floor are very spacious and well furnished. The master bedroom has a big outdoor bath room and a sunken bath where the kids used as 2nd swimming pool.
    It is a place ideal to escape from the modern world so no wonder there is only one aged TV in the whole villa :) the 3rd room on the 2nd level is basic with no bath room, yet it is romantic in its own way.

    The staff
    They are very helpful and speaks good english (the owner teaches English in Bali). They even brough us to the local temple celebration to enjoy the Jogek dance at a village temple.

    Overall is a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Definitely recommend for friends!

Thanks for your kind words about my diligence and help. Our service is our hallmark at Villa Damee and nothing is every too much trouble. Love to have you back. I hope you return to the beautiful island of Bali. The pool and massages will be waiting for you.

About
Hi, I am Stephanie. I am a New Zealander and I live in Ubud, Bali. I own Villa Damee with my husband, David Metcalf and our partners, Rex and Catherine. I am a freelance travel writer and an English Tutor. David is a professional photographer and takes specialised 7-day photo tours around Bali and also offers half-day photo tours from Ubud. His photo tours extend from Bali to other islands of Indonesia e.g Flores, Kalimantan (orangutans), Java and beyond. This year his tours are to Yosemite, California, USA and India. David and I have traveled extensively throughout Indonesia and other parts of the world. The first day we arrived in Bali we fell in love with the place and decided that one day we would make it our home. We visited many parts of Bali searching for the best location and decided on Pejeng Village, just 10 minutes out of Ubud. When you stay at Villa Damee you are in the middle of a very ancient, traditional village, in fact Pejeng has the highest concentration of temples found anywhere in Bali. The local people are very friendly and our staff, who are all employed from the local village are more than happy to explain the various aspects of Balinese culture you. All the staff speak English and are very well trained in delivering impeccable service and making your stay very special. Take a look at Villa Damee, on the website and take a tour. We are also on Youtube and also on (website hidden). We look forward to welcoming you at Villa Damee. Best regards, Stephanie Brookes and David Metcalf
