I have lived in Ubud, for over 28 years, working as an artist and designer. I designed, built, and furnished each of the homes on my large garden property. I enjoy sharing my Bali experience with anyone who is interested.

Thank you again Caroline, Kutut, Wayang and Nyoman. Your house is magnificent and the support and care wonderful. I had my own complications but none of you were phased and all very helpful.
For anyone that is interested in staying here I would highly recommend it for people that would like a genuine, elegant and private experience and who likes animals too. I stayed in the studio last year and found that perfect also.
This year my parents joined me for part of the stay as we stayed in the house which has plenty of air, space, light and room. It is set in gardens that are natural and well kept and there are beautiful views of rice fields right in front of you. You can spoil yourself in the open expansive bathroom.
It also feels like a home as it has a warm and generous vibe. I did work here and the wifi was great. So if you are looking for somewhere to get away from the hustle and bustle and do your own thing it is perfect. If you want a quality, serene and natural stay and like being close to the environment and animals then don't hesitate on this one I think it is rare.
Caroline's place is truly a sanctuary and the perfect place. Upon my arrival I was greeted and welcomed by the people who work at the property and felt right at home from the beginning. The home was clean, cozy, quiet, and the greatest space I found while on my long stay in Bali. The quality of the WiFi connection was also excellent for those of you who make a living from working online as I do. Her pets she mentioned were sweet, friendly and a joy to see every day. If you feel called to this precious space gift yourself the opportunity to be in a truly wonderful Bali home. It is a short motorbike into the center of Ubud, and the drive is quite lovely! I will absolutely come back to Caroline's home on my next visit.
Hi Caroline, Nyoman, Kadek and Wayun
Thank you very much for all making my stay at the Raja Yoga studio perfect. It was the ideal space for yoga, meditation and some work.
Caroline the open design is both simple and stunning. I used the resort beyond the rice paddy for a couple of massages, ate at the warung down the road and went to the Ashram for yoga (where you can hire a mat if you don't bring one) I would love to return and will try to next year some time. The two cats and dog were friendly company. I felt very safe and well looked after. The pushbike was useful for small trips to Ashram and warung. I also walked into Ubud and back home again another evening. If you like walking this is a lovely thing to do and takes about an hour.
I would recommend it to anyone who wants a peaceful, genuine and private space of their own away from the busy but wonderful centre of Ubud. Cheers and thanks Lawrie
We loved our stay in the studio! A fantastic place, large and open, solid and square, every part of the home is thoughtfully designed and well made (especially liked roof and tiled floor). The surroundings are wonderful, full of plant life and things to look at/listen to (one morning spent watching 60ish year old farmer climb coconut tree, fireflies at night, gamelan…) plus it's a good distance to Ubud centre, not too close to the crowds, but not too far... Thank you to Caroline and her staff, who are all very kind and helpful. And we'll miss the pets, Dusty, Dude and Vic!
This studio is quaint and practical with all that one needs to be self sufficient in Bali. You will find fridge, filtered water, and gas cooker as well as other comforts such as lamps, table&chairs, wardrobes, ample cushions. The outdoor shower is such a treat with views of the rice paddies. We enjoyed being amongst village life and having some distance from the tourist hustle and bustle. The studio is 5kms out of Ubud so you need to be prepared for a beautiful 1hr walk (downhill), use of scooters, or negotiations with drivers (40 000 was our lowest price). Caroline's place was the perfect piece of paradise we were looking for. The hospitality offered was genuine and delightful as were visits from the animals of the house. We recommend this studio and would choose to stay here again if we returned to Ubud.
We stayed in Caroline's place for almost 4 weeks, really got to sink into the experience. The place is really, really, amazing, really well put together, very beautifully furnished, very cool. The space is large, the varanda is spectacular, the views are amazing. The land is beautifully maintained and designed. There is a crew of ducks and chickens, a goat, two great cats, a dog, it is a homey slice of heaven.
Caroline is a great host, she is there in a house around the way and is open to conversation and support, and knowledgable about the whole island when asked. The staff who works on the property is very kind and we enjoyed getting to know them very much as well. At the same time, the space is very private.
It is a real retreat, this space. It is a beautiful motor scooter ride into town. Truly a magical experience. Can't recommend it highly enough.
Beautiful place in a great part of Ubud. Everyone who saw where we styled was jealous ;) We loved the pool just meters from the bed and enjoyed using the well-stocked kitchen. Caroline was very responsive by email and answered all our questions and made recommendations that we really appreciated.
The only minus was ongoing construction across the rice fields meant listening to power tools at times but such is life!
Our stay at Loka Pala was perfection. After just a short time the villa felt like our own home. Baths in te rub overlooking the rice paddies were my favorite down time activity and my husband enjoyed swimming in the pool each afternoon as the suns heat took over. We also thoroughly enjoyed cooking our own meals and found Ubud to provide a ton of fresh and local options in groceries. Caroline was completely attentive and helpful from touring and airport pickup to even our specific needs and requests. The home was cleaned daily and the staff are all darling. We felt at home, and in our privacy as well as housed in a place full of information if we should need it. A+.
Caroline and her staff couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming
throughout my stay. This is a lovely place to unwind, and relax, and is ideally located just a few minutes from the bustle of Ubud, surrounded by rice fields, coconut palms, and in the midst of Carolines' lush and varied garden.
I would return in a heartbeat.
Great location--just down the street from the Monkey Forest. The area is nice a quiet with sidewalks and clean streets.
Carolina was a great guest. Though I didn't have the chance to meet her personally due to unavoidable work engagements, she took great care of the apartment and room. I would welcome her back anytime and look forward to one day visit her beautiful property and rooms in Bali! Highly recommended to fellow hosts and great Airbnb'er!
I have met Caroline in UBUD about 5 yrs ago when i started the "Bali THink Tank", she joined n and brought in her ideas and her sense of beauty and harmony --
We became friends and i visited her shop next to her little "Warung" (local style coffee shop) and later her house in the rice fields --
Everything Caroline designs and creates is made with taste and freshness, the "liberty' style cushions, hand painted tables in pastel colors, ancient tiles on the floor with beautiful patterns, carpets from batik, recycled doors with tiny tainted glass, organic walls made of woven bamboo...
the surroundings here are super cool, just about 4-5km outside Ubud: a tamed jungle with high trees, coconut trees loaded with fruit, rice fields spreading their shades of emerald green -- the quiet country life of peasants passing by, a bundle of grass balanced on their head.
If you like to take a rest away from the traffic and buzz, this is the place!
