Our family of four moved to Bali from San Francisco in 2011, thinking we would stay just ten months. We liked it so much that we are still here! Our children (ages 7 and 9) attend the Green School, my husband is an environmental analyst who is studying coral reefs and fishing populations around Indonesia and I am an aspiring author. Our home, designed by our friend and artist, Pak Oka, combines a modern sensibility with traditional elements of Balinese design. It is a perfect place to retreat while remaining within easy reach of all that Ubud has to offer.
