Conveniently located mid-way between the walking road into Penestanan and the paved road thru Penestanan Kelod. Peaceful and private, yet just a 5 minute walk from Eve's Spa in one direction or Nirvana Villas in the other.
When you step inside the gate, you will feel that this is not the usual cramped vacation rental. Inside you will find spacious, well furnished rooms with high wooden ceilings and rich granite floors. And you will not have to stumble around trying to find a shared bathroom in the middle of the night. If you feel the urge to cook or entertain friends, you will have ample room and facilities to indulge yourself.
Outside you will see lush landscaping and hear the relaxing gurgle of the fountain emptying into a most inviting pool, large enough for a whole family to enjoy without banging elbows.

About: This is a family house, owned by my wife Made and me, built and managed by her brother Ketut Puja. Their mom, Ibu Putu, has served up food and hospitality for decades at her warung at the top of the stairs from Champhuan to Penestanan, which was also renowned for her beautiful daughters. Made and I live in California with our family and spend as much time in Bali as we can.
Why Penestanan: Made's brother Ketut architected and built this house to our satisfy our desires for a long-term residence. Because this is a family house, meant for more than rental income, Ketut took no shortcuts, using the best craftsmen and the finest quality materials throughout, creating a space where we can live happily for years to come. Within a 15-20 minute walk to Ubud's busy scene, Penestanan offers a calmer pace with no need to venture far for a relaxing day. You will find this home to be a welcome sanctuary where you can recover from a busy day on the island, or just get away from it all for a while.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: The concept of this house is somewhat minimalist, favoring simple elegance over ornate decoration. Rumah Terang translates to 'bright house' and you will enjoy feeling of openness and space realized here.
Western visitors will appreciate some of the conveniences we have included: a large bathroom attached to each bath room, a full bath tub in the master bath, and a full, spacious, well equipped Western style kitchen.
