Villa Umah Wa Ke is situated on the border of Badung and Tabanan, overlooking the majestic Sungi river. This idyllic location is both peaceful and serene whilst only a short drive to the surfing Mecca, Echo Beach and even closer to the world renowned Nirwarna Golf Resort at Tanah Lot.
When you choose to stay at Villa Umah Wa Ke you will experience the tranquillity of of Ubud but still be within easy striking distance of Seminyak. From this superb location you truly are able to experience the best of both worlds.
Imagine waking to the sounds of king fishers and other native birds that call our river valley home. Eat your breakfast whilst watching the squirrels perform their morning acrobatics in the nearby coconut palms and allow yourself to be seduced by the gentle flow of the river. This is the experience of Villa Umah Wa Ke. Organise a day of shopping with your friends. Take advantage of the private car and driver we can arrange for you. Have lunch in one of the many fabulous eateries in Seminyak then hit the boutiques again, refreshed and revived. Once finished you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the scenic drive home. Highly recommended is a pit stop at the amazing Bangalow cafe in Canggu. Their menu is sublime and the home-wares and gifts are wondrous. You'll still be home in time to enjoy sunset drinks by the pool. We can even organise a chef to create a spectacular meal for you. What a perfect way to finish the day! Alternatively you could choose to stay closer to home. Hit the waves at Echo beach, Berawa or Batu Bolong. You could also try our secret break at Nyanyi beach. You won't be disappointed. After working up an appetite pick up a gourmet burger at BJ's or stock up on French delicacies from Monsieur Spoon. Have a relaxed lunch at betel nut or Canteen cafes. Quench your thirst at the amazing Grove Drinkery or Old Man's by the beach. These are but a few of the little gems scattered in and around the local area.
From Villa Umah Wa Ke there is so much to see and do. It is the perfect base which allows you easy access to all the fantastic area's Bali has to offer. So why not treat yourself to the experience that is Umah Wa Ke. You deserve it!!

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Heidi and I married in Bali in 1997 and purchased land soon afterwards. After 2 children and many years in Australia we decided to move back to Bali. Building Villa Umah Wa Ke was a true labour of love and dedication. Once completed in July 2011, we moved in and called Villa Umah Wa Ke home until we decided to move back to Australia earlier this year (2014).
The Ballinese translation for Umah Wa Ke is 'Our House'. Since this was our home for over two and a half years we thought this a befitting name. We cherished every minute of living here and now we hope you too will enjoy creating your own special memories at 'Umah Wa Ke', 'Our House'
Made & Heidi
Why the Owner Chose Canggu: This part of Bali has been known to travellers for quite some time however it is only now starting to emerge as a coveted holiday destination. We are surrounded by nature and yet we have surf beaches and a world renowned golf resort only minutes away. There are so many fantastic restaurants and cafe's, as well as boutiques and Balinese antiquity shops all very close by. If you still crave the rush and excitement of Kuta and Seminyak then you can easily access these area's but have the benefit of retreating to the sanctuary of Villa Umah Wa Ke and it's peaceful surrounds
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: We built what we consider to be paradise. We wanted a home to raise our children and a place that was away from the craziness that can be Bali. We needed to be close to schools and friends but we also wanted a peaceful life surrounded by nature. I think we have managed to create the ideal hideaway. You can't beat the sound of the river outside your windows. The views are endless and the home comforts are sublime. It is quite easy to spend the day in bathers and sarong, moving from pool to sunlounge to day bed and back to pool. This pace is not for everyone but guaranteed it will suit many. It certainly felt like paradise for us!!
