About this listing

This lovely private house in the midst of the rice fields, located only 10 minutes from Ubud centre. The house is not shared and the pool is fully private as well, there are no neighbours wall to wall with the house.

The space

This house was built 2012, by Ketut and his family its a fully private, renovated two storey house, overlooks the pristine Rice Fields of Penestanan only 10 minute drive from central Ubud.
Its house surrounded by nature, which means insects, bugs, snakes, mice and so forth are part of it living in the surrounding rice fields.

Decorated with beautiful wood furniture, double bed on the top floor, wardrobe, small table and a balcony to watch the sunsets.

We are renting the whole house (not just a room) and the swimming pool with it fully private and only for the house guest.
This is place for those looking to disconnect, to get their creative flow running, a place for lovers of Nature and want to be close to it.

The house has two floors, the stairs leading to the top floor, can be a challenge for people who have a walking difficulty, or small children.

Downstairs has a day bed for for one more person, either an adult or a child.
A large dining table with bench seating.
A fully equipped kitchen.
An outdoor shower and an enclosed separate bathroom is to be found downstairs.
With a porch outside and a plunge pool in the garden.
The House has no immediate neighbours giving it nice privacy but yet close to Ubud center, Penestanan hub, where you can get all you need, restaurants, cafes, local shops and the larger super market and Sayan Terraces by Ayung River.

If you are a light sleeper you might want to be made aware that Roosters are a common property of each house in Bali, and these tend to make noise at the early hours of the morning, you might want to carry earplugs with you.
They are not part of Ketuts house but rather the nearby houses.
Feel free to contact me for more information about the house.

There is not really an official public transport to Ubud, best is to rent wheels (scooter, bicycle or a car) if you frequently want to visit Ubud. Or ask Ketut to arrange a Taxi. (around 5 USD to town) If you are a keen walker Ubud is about 30-40 min walk away. Penestanan is the nearest neighbourhood, only 10 min walk from the house.

Other things to note

Ketut' place is a very nice private villa exactly as shown in the pictures and the description. It is very private and having the pool to take a dip in after a long day was great. Ketut is such a nice, warm hearted guy and so very helpful. The location is away from the town of Ubud so it's very quiet and peaceful there, yet just a 15 minute scooter ride from town. Logistics are key: Ketut drove us to town to get scooters and we hoped a taxi back after dropping them off late evening our last day. The location is a bit challenging to find but very doable once you learn the landmarks. Ketut is available to assist with directions to drivers, etc.. We arranged a rental car to be dropped off at the villa the morning of our checkout, gaven them general location & Letut's phone number and rhe car was delivered on time and without any difficulty. I definitely recommend staying here and we would do so again if back in Ubud.

Our stay at this gorgeous home was absolutely wonderful... we never wanted to leave! The house itself is beautiful and clean, the pool and backyard is a perfect, quiet place to relax and chill with lush, colorful vegatation surrounding you, and the view of the rice terraces from both the large wooden deck and backyard is serene! This house is quiet and a bit secluded from the loud town but still very very close to it by moped or car! Ketut is an amazing host and so helpful! His drivers Koming and Karma were also the nicest people! If we are ever back in Ubud, we will 100% be staying here again! Families, backpacking trips with friends, solo, it doesn't matter what kind of travel you are on, I HIGHLY recommend staying here!

What a wonderful place to stay! We absolutely loved our 2 week stay. Let's start with the couple of things to be aware of: 1. The noise .... if you don't like the sound of roosters in the morning (which we didn't mind at all) or of dogs barking sometimes at night (not quite so enjoyable), bring earplugs. 2. The house is a little way from Ubud... not so easy to walk into town. However, having said that, Ketut can organise a scooter for you (the best option in my opinion) and then it is easy and fun to get around). If you don't want to ride a scooter, Ketut can organise a car or someone to pick you up on a scooter (the cheaper option if you are on your own). 3. If you are looking for a 5 star resort, this isn't it. The house is simple, though it has everything you need, with a couple of nice extras like the pool and air conditioning. Having said all of that ... we loved it and would definitely go back. The house was simple but beautiful, with air conditioning in the bedroom (essential) and a wonderful upstairs balcony. We sat there every evening and watched the sun set over the rice fields (whilst drinking a Bintang). The pool is wonderful and very private.... so if you don't want to wear your swimmers .... you don't have to. The garden is walled and the gate locks. Ketut's family were very sweet and Ketut very helpful. He even came in one day with some Balinese food for us as a gift (very yummy). It was wonderful to watch the women making offerings and praying at the little temple at the bottom of the garden. We were there for Christmas and New Year's Eve. New Year's Eve was great fun, I celebrated with some of the locals in the street. There were fireworks going off all over the place. We loved our stay. If you want a bit more of a local, authentic experience (off the tourist trail), this is it. Add in the pool, aircon and reasonable price .... this makes for an excellent holiday accommodation choice.

After a slightly delayed pickup (not our host's fault) a 1.5 hour ride (insane traffic) brought us to the villa. It's smaller than the pictures would suggest, but lovely, comfortable and well situated. The pool is nice for lounging - if you want to do laps, look elsewhere. For eating, plan to go to the local pasar malam or enjoy the many great and cheap (street) food options around Ubud. The kitchen is quite basic. Lots of peace and quiet by day, less so unfortunately at night because some local dogs had taken it upon themselves to provide a few howling and barking concerts. Slept very well regardless, and it is great to be woken up by roosters and then doze some more. Be prepared, as indicated in the listing, to deal with visitors such as geckos and skinks, as well as a very friendly local cat named Ginger. Also need a motorcycle to get around, and Indonesian traffic is chaotic to say the least. The villa is quite close to Ubud, which is great - lots of opportunities for checking out art, great food options, good spas close and many tourist attractions such as the Monkey Forest. Didn't get to meet our host in person, but in all the stay was well organised. Recommended for people looking for some seclusion and daytime peace, with the option of immersion in the hustle and bustle of nearby Ubud.

Thank you Maurice for your time and kindness to share your experience. Yes the neighbourhood dogs like to take upon them the night patrol. Sorry you did not get to meet Ketut, maybe next time. Happy travels

We stayed at Ketuts for almost a week. We chose to be picked up by Ketut's brother Karma from the airport as we were arriving late in the night and the place wasn't easy to get to. we had no trouble meeting Karma at the airport and was a smooth and a hassle free pickup. I recommend this better than taking a Taxi from the airport and the fare is not even expensive and it's fairly priced. Ketut's home was a beautiful home in the middle of the rice field, situated Just 15-20 mins away from central Ubud. We had daily yoga classes at yoga barn so we rented a scooter from Ketut so it was easier for us to go back and forth. Ketut was a very good host that took care of all our needs and was always available to answer whatever questions we had regarding where to find stuff in the area be it over the phone or he would just walk and come by to our house so he could give as an answer and explain. Lots of good places around to eat and there is an awesome Vegan restaurant just 4 mins away from Ketut's place that we very much loved and enjoyed. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a quite and a relaxing stay away from the tourist bustled areas in Ubud. Just one thing though, if you're a light sleeper I recommend you get some ear plugs with you as the dogs barking at night sometimes might keep you awake. Thanks Ketut for the lovely stay :) Ethi & lutz

Hi my name is Andréa.
Ketut is the owner of the Ubud Rice field view house, he is a Balinese friend who has little knowledge (next to none) about internet, hence makes it hard for him to advertise outside Ubud, so volunteered to help him out as this is something I have done for the past 10 years, running my holiday letting agency in Barcelona.
I simply take care of reservations, and once you arrive to Ubud you are in great care of very capable and friendly host Ketut.
Ketut has worked on cruise ships for many years and has vast experience in customer service.

He is renting out his place for those looking to disconnect, to get their creative flow running, a place for lovers of Nature and want to be close to it.
So far no one has been disapointed.
