About This Listing
A private villa on a secluded 1800 square meter land facing a river, with a 11-meter swimming pool - a true jewel with total serenity yet within a walking distance from downtown Ubud. Immerse yourself in the nature and absolute beauty of Bali!
Master bedroom with a custom made Queen size bed (180 x 200) with the best quality matress.
The villa, completed in 2013, is located in the popular Nyuh Kuning village, just south of Ubud, a mere 15 minute walk through Monkey Forest. It is built on 18-are (20,000 square feet) overlooking a small river valley and terraced rice fields. Despite the closeness to central Ubud, the property is secluded and serene. No sound of passing vehicles can be heard - all you hear are birds, frogs, ghekkos and the gentle streaming of the river below - thus we named it Casa Serenitá, House of Serenity.
The villa is comprised of four buildings: Master bedroom with half outdoor bathroom (bathtub, rain shower, and two sinks); Second bedroom is a Gladak—an antique Javanese wood house transported from Java—that has a private half outdoor bathroom (shower only) and a porch with a view; Complete kitchen/dining/living space that is large enough to accommodate small group yoga or other gatherings; and a traditional Balinese-style gazebo in which to sit and relax.
There is a 2.5m x 11m swimming pool in the garden.
The house is maintained and managed by a friendly staff from the village - a full-time gardener, a night-time security, a part-time house caretaker, and a manager who can assist you in any aspect during your stay.
The villa was built with one thing in mind - harmony and integration with nature. The design is traditional and authentic Balinese bale style architecture, completely open to and part of the beauty of the surrounding nature. It does not aim to be super-deluxe or unnecessarily luxurious. Rather, it is a down-to-earth, simple and comfortable nest for those who want to be as close to nature as one possibly can be, while still enjoying all the modern comfort and convenience in total tranquility. This is a perfect space for a writer's retreat, meditation, yoga and other spiritual/inner work, or just to unwind and relax.
There are two cats that live on the property, Winston (aka Ton-Ton) and Winona (aka Nona). They are friendly and cuddly, and roam freely on the land. They are taken care of by our staff and there is nothing you need to do, but if you have severe cat allergy, maybe it is not a good idea to stay here.
The price indicated is for the master bedroom with full use of the kitchen/dining/living space and includes breakfast. Airport pickup/dropoff is available for US$30 one way. You can also rent the whole villa (including the Gladak), or rent the Gladak only (for details of the Gladak, please see https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1351129).
As a rule of thumb, check-in is 3 PM and check-out is 11 AM. However, this can be flexible depending on the previous/next guest's schedule.

Please respect other guests (if there are any) and the quietness of the space.
A rare moment where the space is even better than in the pictures. The location was close to so many things, and yet you felt completely secluded. Kadek and Ketut made everything easy, and Desak's food was incredible. Would definitely stay again! Can't recommend highly enough.

About the Host, Naoko
Hi, I am Naoko, the owner of Casa Serenitá.
I am a book translator and I divide my time between Tokyo, Bali and Seattle. My love affair with Bali started back in 1990. I have returned for visits over the years and built relationship with this very special village, Nyuh Kuning, just south of Ubud. In 2012, after 10 years of planning, a house was finally built on a very special, secluded piece of land overlooking the river.
I am unable to live in Bali all year round, and therefore, offer this house for visitors while I am not there. Hope you will come and stay - and enjoy the beauty of old-style Bali in the serenity.
