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. The joy of this property is in its "patina," it's sanctuary and privacy, it's wonderful staff. **In-house on-call massage therapy available (~ Rp 100,000; GBP 7; USD 11-12)

Further details

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 Bali region

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...
