Wooden Home on a Shrimp Pool! Ubud

House - Entire home/apt · Ubud, Bali 80571, Indonesia

The Space

Holiday on our private estate on the famous Sayan Valley edge, just a few minutes from Ubud town. We have a remarkable collection of bamboo buildings as well as antique all teak bridal houses from Java, each with individual design characteristics that cocoon guests in comfort in a staggeringly beautiful all natural environment
We collected these houses over several years, originally for our friends and families to stay with us. Our estate is now available for all to enjoy!
Ubud has now become famous as glamorous destination for business people, authors, cyclists, walkers, and many others. Come and find out why!

Our unique House

The House is the most unique home on the estate and perhaps anywhere! Set above a shrimp pond, this house has tempered glass floor panels for an underwater panorama of crustaceans in action. Authentic shrimp baskets have been converted into lamps for a total fishing village experience.
This house is situated at the source of the fresh water fountain that supplies the natural pool. The porch is private and cozy for languid afternoons taking in the sounds of the bubbling fountain and coolness of the water.
The shower is partly indoor and partly outdoor providing our guests an opportunity to commune with Nature. The glass tiled roof of the bathroom allows entry of both the light of day and the Bali moon at night--a remarkable experience to bring a weary traveler back to life.

The bathroom runs both hot and cold water, and the House is equipped with a safety box, a mini bar fridge, AC, and in room Estate intercom. The house water supply is triple filtered using a colloidal silver and reverse osmosis process. A local laundry service is available to guests, and motorbikes and local mobile phones are also available for rent, and a Yoga service is also available. Our reception also offers exclusive local excursions, and guests can also enjoy a massage or body treatment on our Estate. Our Estate has 24 hour security.

Home Cooking

Our on-site kitchen prepares delicious Indonesian food, from fresh ingredients. Our breakfast is also complimentary, and includes fresh roasted organic local coffee for cappuccinos which we can deliver to your house. At 4pm, complimentary tea is served on our sunset Bale

Our Natural Pool.....

Is filled by a natural river, uses local lava stones for filtering all things green, and is surrounded by large, beautiful stones from the mountains.

If you are wondering if this my estate, it is not! However, be rest assured, the owners have personally authorised me to list their estate here.

  • We had an absolutely amazing time staying here! We originally planned to stay for just 5 days and ended up staying for 10! I'm sure that that in itself speaks volumes. There was a double booking mishap for the last two nights of our first 5 days, which initially left us slightly annoyed, but we ended up being "upgraded" to the Kuno house, which I actually did like a little better, so we continued the extension of our stay there, even at full price. :) All of the teak bridal houses are so lovely and unique, and the views on the property are insane...pretty much everything there is beautiful. The staff were all so sweet, helpful and welcoming! I want to stay there forever and eat organic meals from their garden, get massages, go on hikes, take private yoga lessons with Budhi, and drink green juice and fresh young coconuts every day! Hahaha. Take me back, I'm ready!!! ;) Thanks for everything, guys! Hope to see you soon. :) xx

  • This place is exactly as it appears in the photos which are pretty amazing. The views from the villa are incredible and the Shrimp House we stayed in was completely charming as are all of the traditional Javanese houses on the property. Lots of yoga happening frequently, but the highlight was the guided walk through the nearby river, rice fields and local villages. A little far out of central Ubud, but lots to enjoy on the property itself. This is a great place for a retreat.

  • The shrimp house is truly amazing and it is even better in the evening when they turned on the lights in the pond underneath. The area itself is breathtaking and a great respite from the hustle and bustle of Ubud's main streets. The staffs too were great, friendly and helpful. Definitely will be back again!
