Property description

Madrigal guest house is ideally situated for a relaxing long term holiday, away from the stress of modern living.
Some of my guests come for just a week...and stay for a month or two, and there are some that never leave,they are the ones that found paradise.

It is situated in the middle of verdant green rice fields with palm trees and mountains in the distance as your backdrop.And on the top floor balcony there are spectacular views of Bali's vulcanoes. The house and furniture is 'tempo doeloe' style, rustic and comfortable. The theme is one of a stress free, layback holiday, there is no traffic noise and your wake up call comes from the birds.

Madrigal house is ideal for hiking and exploring the breathtaking beautiful local countryside, yet you are never too far away from a warung {local restaurant} to quench your thirst,or for a bite to eat,sampling the local food,nasi goreng or nasi campur,sate etc.
We have excellent relations with our warungs in the neighbourhood and they will deliver lunch or dinner at your doorstep should you so wish.
I particular recomment 'WARUNG BUBU' that lady is a superb cook,always freshly cooked for you.
However,should you like to make a day trip at Rp.500.000 for the full day,we do have our very reliable driver Wayan Sukia ,polite,neat,knowledgeable and available 24/7
Wayan will pick you up from the airport for the standard fee of Rp.250.000 and will always help you with your luggage,delivered at the doorstep...that is not always the case with other 'taxi drivers'
Ibu Made,our housekeeper will look after you in any way possible,she's a excellent cook and our breakfast includes a variety of pancakes,omelettes,telur ayam kampung rebus, smoothies plus if you are very good to her,she will even make you black rice pudding.
In fact,she is that well known that sometimes she is asked to cook breakfast in neighbouring guest houses for guests that have been staying with us on previous occasions
Madrigal house, your home away from home. Come and enjoy...
Should you like a somewhat smaller ,please contact us for details,we are here to please...

Car: Recommended

from the top balcony there are spectacular views of ALL the vulcanos in Bali,specially in the early mornings the view can be breathtaking...

Gunung Agung being the 'grandlady' of bali is to your right and from there looking left they are all lined up for you,mount Abang,mount Batur with it's spectacular lake site temple at Bedugul, spectacular...indeed.

Madrigal is very well suited for those people that like taking hikes through the rice fields and the nearby villages,there are numerous walking paths with small painting galleries and warungs along the way.

In fact Ubud and it surrounding banjars are full of pleasant surprises for those of you that take the time and have the energie for a good hike or take a trip on a bike.

DON'T FORGET TO TAKE YOUR CAMERA AND YOUR BINOCULARS

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My 'love' for Indonesia started at an early age,at primary school in Holland were one of my teachers was a born story teller,that this man was born in Indonesia in the central Java city of bandung came as a bonus. Master Williams could conjure up the most facinating stories about kite flying,a national sport in indonesia,roaming through the tea and coffee plantations in central Java. Riding buffalos to the kali after the day's work in the fields. The stories were endless and me as a young boy was smittten and never forgotten. It was as a young man in 1964 that I set sail to Australia,the country that became my home for 45 years. Perth,a then small city on the west coast became my new world and there was a lot of growing up to do. In 2006,the year that I retired,Perth had grown into a triving metropolital city with over 2 million people. As a coach driver for 30 years I was part of that growing up both on a personal level and city level. Over the years I had the privilege to travel to Bali for many years on vacation and the love affair with Indonesia and in particular Bali was rekindled. I also have had the luck of working for a cruise line for a number of years and that job took me around the world,you may call it on a working holiday. When I told my friends that I was retiring to Bali they called me a few unkind words but after almost 10 years they have retracted those and they are now regular guests in my house here.

Why the Owner Chose Penestanan, Bali, Republic of Indonesia:
During my working life I had the good fortune to travel a great deal,by no means did I see all there is to see but 3 locations stood out,Mexico,Malang,a city in east Java-Indonesia and then came Bali...and the rest is history... Bali is and will always be an Island full of culture,art in all it's forms. But what stands out in Bali are the Balinese people and their religion,a unique blend of Hinduism only to be experienced and seen in Bali... You are never too far away from a ceremony,there are soo many of them. Even just walking into Ubud you might encounter some kind of ceremony.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
First and foremost it is the possibility to meet people from all walks of life,having sundowners on the varandah is just cheer bliss and the culmination of yet another day in paradise. But there is much more to Bali for me at least,here,culture and religion are very much intertwined,they go together,separate them and the Balinese would be lost. It is this uniqueness that sets Bali and the Balinese people apart from the rest of the world as we know it and to be part of that world I feel truly blessed.
