About the Property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8);1 king bed, 3 queens, 1 single + more

This villa has a Balinese owner and is managed beautifully by Made (see photo below). I help them find short term renters when I am out of town. Rental proceeds go to the owner Eni.

Note: There is a construction project next door to this lovely villa, hence the 50% discount. Rates will return to normal when construction next door is complete, but for those who book now, the discount will be honored. The construction sounds take place on some days between 8am and 5PM. Our driver Wayan and housekeeper Made can help you plan your outings into Ubud or around Bali so that you are not disturbed.

The photo below is of Made, the housekeeper. You will love her!

Enjoy! The spacious flower-filled garden, and salt water pool.

Both Wayan and Made speak English and their aim is to make your visit a once in a lifetime experience. They are amazing!

'Made' comes for 5 hours per day, 6 days a week to prepare your breakfast and clean. She will also help with shopping, laundry and cooking additional meals - just about anything you need and you can negotiate a fee with her if this takes her over her 5 hour work day. Her rates are very low. She speaks English and can help you with your every need including ordering restaurant delivery, drivers, tour guides, car rentals, mobile phone sim cards, massages - pretty much anything you need.

The driver, Wayan has served as our English speaking driver for years and the guests love him, his gentle ways, and his knowledge of the island. Guests call him and pay (very reasonable rates) on an as needed basis.

Description of villa: This large, spacious villa is 2km north of the Royal Palace - a 7 min scooter drive drive from downtown Ubud.

The villa is faced with river rock and is a combination of open-air Balinese and Dutch Colonial with a wrap around veranda, garden with 9x3 meter saltwater pool, and a renovated traditional Balinese Lumbong which serves as the 3rd bedroom and bath and chill zone - also a kitchenette. The garden is walled off and quite lush with foliage and flowers.

There are 2 air conditioned bedroom + bathroom suites in the main villa. Each includes a seating area, a desk and sliding glass doors leading to the verandah or balcony(upstairs).

The upstairs bedroom has A.C. and is filled with windows, sunlight, and a covered balcony. It's a large room with a mosquito covered king sized hand carved bed overlooking the jungle, seating area, and antique desk & chair. Ensuite bathroom with tub/shower combo.

The downstairs bedroom also has A.C., looks out into the garden and pool, and has sliding glass doors to the veranda on one side, large antique doors to the verandah and pool on the other. This room has an antique Javanese 4-poster bed with mosquito net. It is a large bedroom with custom made floor cushions for relaxing or use as an extra bed. Cushions are made of antique batik fabric. Large ensuite bathroom is lined in volcanic rock and features a tub/shower combination and separate large rainfall shower, and of course a sink and toilet.

The guest house is like a tree house - in actuality it is a renovated traditional Balinese Lumbong. It features a queen sized bed with mosquito net. Walls are woven palm and the roof is Ylang-Ylang. Windows are hand carved shutters and the door and floors are antique wood. This traditional Balinese Lumbong "breathes", but we've added a ceiling fan for your comfort.

Underneath the guesthouse is a open air kitchenette and chill area/queen bed on platform with mosquito net and bamboo shades which can be lowered around the lower bale for privacy.

Attached to the Lumbong, downstairs, is and a lovely garden bathroom . Enjoy showering under the waterfall shower next to a palm tree!

There are carved Balinese statues throughout the garden, and the beds are made of antique Javanese wood. In total there are 3 queen beds 1 king, and extra twin mattresses which can be put on the floor.

The kitchen: The kitchen is roomy with a walk in pantry and includes a Vitamix blender, a juicer and dehydrator, and everything you need for yummy, healthy tropical fare. Breakfast is included in the rate, and Made can whip up whatever you like for lunch or dinner for a very small fee. Don't see what you need? Just ask.

The kitchen has a full size refrigerator with freezer and cook top stove. It is partially open to the jungle, garden, and a small inner courtyard, with a window to the dining room.

The dining room is on a lowered section of the veranda just off the kitchen overlooking the garden. There is another table with chairs and umbrella in the the garden.

This is a 3-bedroom villa including the guesthouse. The lower section of the guesthouse can be used as an optional 4th bedroom for larger groups. Bamboo blinds can be lowered for privacy.

We also have extra mattresses that can be used in the large bedrooms of the main house. This house is most comfortable for 3 singles or 3 couples, but can sleep sleep up to 8.

Salon: The common living area is on the wide covered, wrap-around porch, in typical "open" Balinese style, surrounded by butterflies flitting in and out, squirrels scampering up coconut trees, and a lush garden.

There are several seating areas on the long L-shaped veranda and a fish pond with koi at one end. Lots of ceiling fans for staying cool.

Laundry room: There is a small laundry room containing a washing machine and dryer which you may use.

The Bali Buddha Villa is the perfect combination of modern and open air Balinese with lush tropical garden. It is a partially open style and with lots of windows to provide natural cooling. There are ceiling fans throughout. There is A.C. in both bedrooms in the main villa, but often because Ubud's nights and mornings are cool, A.C. is often not needed.The wrap around verandah helps the villa to stay cool and shaded.

In addition: There is a landline telephone and Wifi/Internet.

Pool: Refreshingly free of chemicals as it is a salt water pool. 9 X 3 meters.

Transportation and tours: Airport pickup is included for one car (6 passengers). Also available for reasonable rates, are shuttles into town. We can also provide you with driver/guides for any trips you may wish to take to other parts of the island. If you would like to have a driver on call, this can be arranged for a reasonable fee.

Scooter rental (recommended!) is $5 per day. Auto rental about $25 per day. Car rental + driver averages about $35 half day, $70 full day, and about $5 per trip into town.

There is an affectionate house kitty named Cleopatra.

For more stories and photos see a selection of my travel stories on my website which (since they won't let me include a web link here is: the normal 3 'w' prefix, plus a dot, followed by my name robinsparks, add a dot + 'com' :)

I hope that you love the Bali Buddha Villa as much as I do.

Notes:

Please note that there is temporary construction next door. For this reason, I have reduced the rate by 30%! It's still a lovely villa with a gorgeous walled in garden. There are sounds of building next door on many days between 8am - 5PM. I recommend you plan your outings during the day and take advantage of this excellent rate for a 3 bedroom/3 bath with pool villa.

Thanks! I look forward to seeing you at the Bali Buddha Villa.

Car: Not Necessary

Just 7 minutes to Ubud - far away enough to be out of Ubud's hectic tourist filled center & close enough to get there easily when you want to. There are a handful of cafes within walking distance and numerous restaurants a 7 min drive up the street. Many of them will deliver to the villa. The main palace and banjar is located on the same street as this villa as well as several 5 star hotels. Many rice paddy walks near the villa.

I am giving a temporary 50% discount off regular rates because there is currently construction next door between 8am and 5pm. Rates will return to normal when construction is finished. But if you've already booked, we will honor the discount. For now, it's a great deal! Lots of beautiful rice paddy walks in the area. Made, the housekeeper will show you, and she can arrange anything you want.

More info about the villa:

This villa is on the same street where all the village's main evening traditional Balinese performances are held and on the same street as Ubud's main palace.

Best to rent a scooter or car for easy access into town, as there are sidewalks only on part of the road. We can arrange a driver of either a car, and/or motorcycle taxi to be on call for you. Note that Ubud is not much of a walking town and there are no walking or bicycle lanes. There are however, numerous paths through the rice paddys near the house but they are mostly for ambience and pleasure as opposed to actually getting into town.

We provide a list of drivers, massage places (even one who will come to the house), guides, restaurants that deliver, and much more. My house manager can help you with all your desires...rice paddy walks, tour guides to take you anywhere, car and scooter rental... She is there 5 hrs per day, 6 days per week, to prepare breakfast, clean and can be hired to also cook additional meals and do laundry at very reasonable rates.

Please note that there is a new construction project on the rice paddy next to the villa. The garden is walled off, but sounds of construction (unfortunately there is construction everywhere in Ubud) can be heard 8-5. Therefore, there is a 30% discount off the listed rate until the construction is finished. It's still a beautiful villa with lush garden, and if you plan your outings during the day, you may not be bothered.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My name Made. I do everything to make you happy during your stay. For those of you booking a Turkish flat, our apologies. VRBO only allows one 'owner' photo and this one is from the villa in Bali. The managers of our Turkish flats are managed by Elif and Marco and they'll be the ones who reply to your inquiry.

Why the Owner Chose Ubud, Bali, Republic of Indonesia:
Close to town, nice architecture, lush garden and great energy. It stays cool due to its location and the wrap around porch. There is A.C in both main bedrooms and a washer and dryer.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
A saltwater pool, verandah, easy access to town while getting to live in a rural area. 'Made' can make delicious fresh healthy juices and food. Fresh juices and/or smoothies or bowl of fresh fruit with muesli each morning if you like. Lunches, dinners, and/or picnics can also be arranged with Made.
