The space

Great place for yoga practice, It feels 2 degrees cooler when you come through the gate, good shade from trees and the thatched roof over the outdoor living
1.5 simple compact bedrooms, King bed with space in the room, and a Queen bed with very little space, both with mosquito nets and standing fans, the house is designed for maximum airflow. 2.4m deep cold pool, nice tropical garden, large thatched balcony that has table and chairs, a long couch and a day bed, that can double as an extra bed, the kitchen has double gas rings, fridge, coffee maker, drinking water comes free, sheets are changed twice weekly, hot water in the bathroom (shower), car parking on the road about 40m away. This house is set up for motor bikes really, as it is down a lane, undercover parking for motor bikes right on the door step, it is set back from the road, 1km down into town. The thing that is lacking is cupboards, but I think they are a mistake in a tropical climate, I have put in rails and coat hangers to hang your clothes on. No extra charge for guests. There is a dog that lives next door she think this house is hers as well, she is a bit noisy, to start, but she will warm quickly. good drainage on the block, there is no mold in the walls. lots of padded white leather, the place looks great, soft and comfortable, good wifi. No television or AC, I am sure you will find this place relaxing and inspiring if you need to work, or just lie around in the pool.

Guest access

Its all yours

Interaction with guests

gardener every 2 days, pool and house cleaner twice a week. The owner and manager will check you in her name is Putu. if you want daily cleaning service, you can arrange that on check in (extra cost).

The neighborhood

just out of the edge of town far enough to get away from the hustle, yet close enough to make getting anything you may need easy. small good restaurant nearby, 24 hour convenience store at the end of the road. lots of good restaurants in town.

Getting around

If you are not planning on renting a motor bike and you are only in Ubud for a short period then I would suggest staying somewhere closer to town, although it is only 1.2 km to town, it is hot and humid here. There are many taxis waiting to bring you back from town. its a downhill walk to town.

Other things to note

This house can be a little hard to find, I guess that is why it is private, so once you have booked in you will get the directions, I suggest you print them.
The ceiling inside the house is fabric, there is no rats in the ceiling.
Once a month or so the family (owners) come through and place offerings in the temples in the garden. (there are many ceremonies days in Bali) They are responsible for the spiritual well being of the land, this is an everyday type of thing for them, so relax and just carry on as normal, or get a sarong, sash and smart shirt on and make an offering yourself.

House Rules

Ubud is a cultural town, there is a sound system in the house but try not to impose your music on the neighbors (all western), no check in or check out time if there is another guest in the house during the change over time, please allow them to leave their things till they go to the airport or wherever they are going on to next.(I do try to keep quite days between bookings)
smoking outside
cut your own coconuts from the trees
top up the pool from time to time if it gets low

Safety features
First aid kit

Ubud is cultural, not a real party place, it is the place to see the richness of the Balinese Hinduism, many dance performances, museums, arts and crafts to explore, great restaurants, There are some late night bars(URL HIDDEN)
