ARE YOU LOOKING FOR THE PEACEFUL, TRANQUIL SIDE OF BALI?
If you're looking to avoid Bali overcrowded, noisy, cars and buses then this place is just right.
Located 1 km of the famous Bali Bird Park. It is right in the middle between Ubud and Sanur. The best location to explore Bali. This villa is located in a quiet little village. Here, you're surrounded with the nature; rice field, coconut trees. Here, you can hear the sound of the crickets, little frogs, birds.
- FOOD DELIVERY: Gojek (An app for motorbike taxi) can deliver to our house. This means that you could order food from (almost) every restaurant in Ubud or Sanur, have it delivered and enjoy it at the comfort of our villa.
- SWIMMING POOL: 8*18 meters huge pool is totally private. Pool has kids zone depth from 10cm -90cm.
When you check in, I will not be there to welcome you personally. However villa manager Pak Ketut introduce you to our staff, give you a tour around the villa and make sure that you'll feel comfortable settling in your new home.
Throughout your stay, we're also available via phone or text messaging so you can always ping us whenever you have any question about the villa or about Bali in general.
At the villa itself we have a lovely caretaker, Pak Putu. He doesn't really speak good English, but he'll be available to help you should you have urgent inquiries or request around the villa. Pak Putu comes to clean villa 3 times a week.
However, please note that we are not a hotel so we don't have 24/7 concierge staff to take care of you. We do have caretakers/cleaner/gardener to help with day-to-day maintenance, but a certain level of independence will be expected from the guests :)
That said, please don't hesitate to let us know if you'd need any assistance, have any question, or anything at all! We're always happy to help.
Our villa is surrounded by rice field.
We're also tucked and hidden in a small Balinese village, away from the tourist quarters of Ubud and Sanur. Here's a few important things that you will need to know about the area:
The rice paddy is alive and breathing. It goes through different cycles where the landscape around you will change colours depending on the season.
At the early stage of its cycle, the landscape will be filled of muddy earth and you will see farmers ploughing the fields, often hemmed by dozens of white herons flying around.
Once all the land has been ploughed, paddy is planted, and water is streamed to the field. This is when the loft will look like it's surrounded by body of water.
Then the paddy starts to grow, and with its growth, come different colours. At the early stage of its growth, you will see bright green, then as it matures, the landscape will turn to golden, and then eventually dark brown.
The whole cycle usually lasts 3-4 months. So when you're staying at our loft, the view that you will see from your suite will change depending on the season.
- SMOKE & FIRE
Following the harvest, the farmers clear the fields to prepare them for a new cycle. This is when the straws were burnt, and the smoke rises. The burning usually lasts for 2-3 hours and depending on where the wind may blow, this might cause inconvenience for the dwellers of our loft. This is however, a part of the reality in living so close to the nature.
- INSECTS AND THEIR ALLIES
Living so close to the nature, we do have living creatures crisscrossing our paths every once so often. In the dawn you will see hundreds of dragonflies, but at night you might also encounter some geckos. You will also hear crickets (or see different types of insects), and sometimes fireflies are also spotted around. There's not a lot of mosquito here, but it's always good to keep mozzy repellent handy.
PARKING & CAR ACCESS
We really recommend you come to our house either with a private driver or you driving your own car. We have car access and car parking for 2 cars.
