With its own privacy wall, beautiful garden and fishpond; the house is two large studios connected via an outside staircase. Downstairs there is also a kitchen, storeroom and attached outside bathroom. There is no common living room but the bedrooms are large. Ideal for two singles or two couples – will sleep extra on single rollout bed and/or futon sofa.

Upstairs Studio – Queen-sized bed, bedside tables, sofa/futon, coffee table, relaxing chair, computer desk, white iMac, bookshelves, armoire, water-dispenser, bathroom with shower, sink, western toilet, two small balconies, separate controlled air-conditioning, Wi-Fi Internet.

Great location – no transport necessary around the corner from Ubud Palace, Ubud Market and Nomad’s Restaurant. The house is on Jalan Sri Wedari, a short ten-minute walk to Ubud's Monkey Forest Road. See the Kecak Fire and Trance Dance performed in the neighborhood temple down the street every Wednesday and Saturday night. Two to three hundred meters up the street, rice fields surround The New Massage Spa, The New Jepun Grill and The New Ubud Green Resort. Make jewelry at our neighbor Wayan Sunarta’s ‘Chez Monique Silversmith Class’ or visit Kadek’s small warung across the street for a Coke and a snack. Grab a cup of coffee before going into town at Seniman Coffee Shop.

Kadek, our delightfully friendly 'pembantu' or house director, will take very good care of you. Kadek speaks English and can help you with any questions you may have. She works 8:30 in the morning until 12pm, Monday through Saturday. She will clean the house, change your linens, shop for you, cook breakfast and/or lunch, (please request a day ahead and you must give her money for food if she is to shop.)

Nyoman Jiwa is our driver, teacher and good friend. He will pick you up at the airport for 300,000 Rupiah – about $35 US. Nyoman also speaks excellent English and is a talented cultural guide, available to take you to any destination on Bali and beyond. He is very well versed in the history, religion and customs of Bali.

Nyoman can also provide you with a motor scooter or car to rent. Please speak with him on the ride to the house about different touring possibilities and prices.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We live in Southern California and holiday on Bali as often as possible. This is our residence when in Bali. I've worked in Bali as a volunteer English Teacher and can speak - some - Bahasa Indonesia. We also enjoy dining, scuba diving and photography. Please feel free to call or e-mail for more information.

Why the Owner Chose Ubud:
Normally we can only spend 2 to 4 weeks in Bali and enjoy going out to eat and sightseeing around the Island. This location is VERY close to all shopping, dining, entertainment in Ubud which saves a lot of time driving back and forth. Also it is centrally located on Bali for sightseeing on the rest of the Island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with Ubud and decided to lease a house there. The people in Bali are very friendly and fun, when deciding where to live we wanted to enjoy a 'Balinese experience' and our house is in the back of a Balinese family compound. There are 7 Balinese in the family, which actually is a small family in Bali - 2 Grandparents, 2 parents and 3 children. The family speaks some English and is very friendly, except Ranita who is shy! Our landlord is the General Manager of Nomad's Restaurant right up the street and around the corner. His name is Made Sudarma he is one of the son's of the elder couple and lives around the corner. Made speaks very good English.
