This is a Balinese-themed open, airy house with 2 AC bedrooms and a semi-enclosed lounge area 3rd sleeping area with fan and carved Chinese Wedding Bed. Bathrooms are tropical style, semi-enclosed, lush with tropical plants. Huge veranda, many comfortable chairs, sofa, loungers. On very large ang very secluded piece of property, yet minutes from "civilization; 15 minute walk into Ubud. My Balinese family staff of 3 have worked for me for 30 years; you buy the food, they cook and generally do-or not do- what you wish. The home is at the end of a 150 meter path; for privacy & security you cannot drive all way to home. Path is steep in places and not good for elderly or infirm. It is not a sterile, all-tiled, sealed and sprayed environment.: butterflies, frogs, birds, lizards, frequent geckos, some roosters, some termites. Not for "hotel-type" folks. It is a sacred and peaceful environment. Flowers, birds & butterflies everywhere. Staff unobtrusive, sweet, helpful. Amazing Balinese massage, mani-pedi available on-site.

**4X12 meter spring-fed swimming pool; meditation/meeting/yoga gazebo. Lily pond. 3 levels of established tropical gardens; 270 degree unobstructed view. Bedrooms are nicely appointed but not luxurious; upstairs is airy. Very adequate arrangements but not truly modern.

|Further details outdoors|
On a large, old, established piece of property, all the way down to the Campuhan River. 2-floors; 2nd is partially open-air. Large veranda. Paths, levels, gardens, ~ 15X10 meter soccer/play area for kids. 5X5 m. gazebo perfect for meditation, yoga, coffee/tea; overlooks pool. True jungle area below developed part of property, down to river. Very private; there is a small village behind the house, but on the other 2 sides and looking out is all space, trees, flowers, birds, butterflies, aromas, insect noises; privacy. Cobblestone paths.
1. This is not a fancy hotel!
2) This is a private house on a large piece of land with gardens and private pool. NOT SHARED; this is not a "villa complex" with shared pool and other villas close by.
3) The path to and from the road is ~ 125 meters and occasionally moderately steep. This is not a place for elderly or unfit folks.
4) It is a 5 min walk to road, shopping, small restaurants. 10 min to more facilities. 15-20 min into middle of Ubud.
5) **Transportation (car with/without driver; motorcycle; bicucle) easily arranged by staff at fair rates.
6) This is a staff you can trust; they have worked here > 25 years and are great with guests
7) I have written and updated a "Bali Guidebook" with comments from guests over the past 30 years; it is available at the house and is very helpful integrating you into Bali
The Ubud area is traditionally the Artists, Dancers, and Crafts area of Bali. Since it has become a tourist destination, MANY fine restaurants and shops of EVERY description abound. It is by far the best area of Bali in which to "hang out; it has everything, yet is ~ 45 min from beach; 1 hour from mountains and North coast; 1 hour from east Bali and Besakih. From the house there are many fine hikes; the people of the area are gentle, interesting, not agressive, and many speak enough English...
