About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Rumah Cinta, meaning the House Made of Love, sits atop a ridge at the edge of Ubud, close to the Camphuan Hotel. From the third story tower, you can see the sunrise, the sunset, all the volcanoes to the north, and the sea to the south. The rooms are large and airy, with large windows and doors that slide back to let the breezes through. The two downstairs bathrooms are in lovely outdoor garden settings, with statuary and water features.

The second-floor master bedroom, which faces west for beautiful evening skies, has a deck, a garden, an outdoor bathroom with a tub, and a stairway access to the tower and rooftop viewing area.

The first floor living room is large and beautifully furnished, with a small but efficient kitchen, equipped with some cooking utensils and dishes, though the Balinese are such good cooks, you should rarely cook for yourself, and a comfortable reading and lounging area off to the side, with a view of the gardens and pool. Please note that while the lounging beds are large enough to be slept on, they do not have mosquito netting.

Artistic touches are everywhere you look, both in the house and out. There are paintings by local artists, Indonesian carvings, carved wood and concrete around windows and doors, high thatched ceilings and beautiful rock and tile work, all hand done.

Some of the real beauty is outside, where the gardens are beautifully tended, two temples protect the property, and the infinity-edge swimming pool offers a cool, calm retreat both daytime and at night. There are a toilet and a shower by the pool, in addition to the 4 bathrooms inside the house.

If you are already in Bali and would like to see Rumah Cinta, please either call 62-361-976146, or go to Ibu Putu's Warung at the top of the steps to the Penestanan path, which are across from the Camphuan Hotel.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I live in California, dividing my time between the Bay Area, Inverness in West Marin, and this glorious home in Bali.

Why the Owner Chose Ubud, Bali, Republic of Indonesia:
Bali is the sweetest place on earth, so when our Balinese friend wanted to build me a house, I said YES!! While I expected a simple Balinese two-bedroom house, he instead built a 3-bedroom estate with gorgeous gardens and the perfect infinity-edge pool. I am still astonished by its beauty.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is serene, quiet, breezy, beautiful, artful, and close to so many things. You can walk to Ubud, eat delicious food at Ibu Putu's Warung, read and swim, and adventure out each day for the beauty that is everywhere.
