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 4.5 kms away. A driver/vehicle is avail on call to take you into Ubud (local cost only $8-10).
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: Our lovely local driver is available to run you into Ubud, or tour the island. All day excursions include 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.
ORPHANAGE: We are very passionate about helping the local people, and we support an orphanage, which our driver will take you to, if you like.
Orphanage Donations of rice is gratefully accepted (and maybe a teddy bear).
VOLUNTEER TEACHING: We also work with the local school (5 mins walk from the villa) 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.

It is a very relaxing ambience at the villa and nature is all around you, which many guests comment is the nicest part of their stay. Close enough to access busy Ubud, when needed. Massage at the villa by trained 5 star massage therapists.
Treat Villa Damee like your home. Having a Balinese cook is a bonus, but if you wish to cook, you are most welcome.
Nous avons été merveilleusement bien accueilli par Wayan qui nous a chouchouté tout au long de notre séjour .
La villa correspond exactement aux photos fournies, les odeurs d encens et de fleurs en plus.
We (family of 6) absolutely loved staying at Villa Damee. We felt immediately at home. The setting was idyllic, garden and pool beautiful with amazing views over the rice fields. The interior was very charming and the staff was amazing! They really took care of us and prepared some delicious lunches/dinners (even with our specific allergy questions). Location is great and just ten (taxi) minutes away from Ubud Centre.

About the Host, Stephanie
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. I am the author of "Indonesia's Hidden Heritage - Cultural Journeys of Discovery". My husband, David is a professional photographer and takes half day and full day photo tours in Ubud. He also offers 7-day photo tours around Bali's secret spots. His photo tours extend to other islands of Indonesia e.g Flores, Java, Kalimantan (orangutans) and beyond. 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 4.5 kms 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 (5) staff, who are all employed from the local village are more than happy to explain the various aspects of Balinese culture you. You have a villa cook when you come and stay. All the staff speak English and are very well trained in delivering impeccable service and making your stay very special. We are also on Youtube and also on facebook. We look forward to welcoming you at Villa Damee. Best regards, Stephanie Brookes and David Metcalf
