Green design villa in rural Bali just 30 minutes from Ubud, 1 hour from airport. Prime location as a base for bicycle tours, trekking, cultural tourism, white water rafting, or just a beautiful place to rest. Central Bali location is convenient starting point for car tours of Bali attractions. Chill in our stunning new swimming pool, or get a Balinese massage in the Bali garden house. The local roads & trails have very little traffic: ideal for exploring on foot or bicycle. Grab a bike and go on your own or we can arrange professional guides. Explore mountains, rivers, waterfalls, temples, traditional farms and villages. Guide can explain a bit about the culture, plants & animals you come across. Three quality bicycles available to Honey Tree guests.
As you can see from the photos, this home is open design facing the jungle with a green belt river in back. The second floor shower has stunning views of lush terraced rice paddiesy! This top floor suite has a spectacular tree-house feel. You can literally touch the treetops. Beautiful gardens surround new pool. Its a hide-away kind of place, for a great escape from city life and a chance to meet Balinese and observe their real way of life away from tourist areas.
There are two en-suite bedrooms with private bath. Three bedrooms total, each with queen size bed. The master suite occupies the entire top floor. Has hot water, bath tub and rain forest shower. The second suite is on the ground floor overlooking the swimming pool.
Both bedroom suites have either a terrace or balcony overlooking the pool. A "bonus bedroom" we call the Jungle Room.is perfect for overflow sleeping. Access is outside in the lower garden. Kitchen, dining, & living rooms are available for your exclusive use...you are renting the complete property.
For optional $5/day cleaning fee, our staff will clean the house daily, make the beds, clean up the kitchen, and service the garden and the pool. Only the first 3 days cleaning fee are prepaid upon booking... days over 3 are optional and paid upon check-out.
There is good outside laundry service available, at very reasonable local Bali rates. Minimart, traditional markets, atm machines 10 minutes drive from the villa.
Our house manager, Kadek, who has a nice car & speaks English well, is available for island tours or basic daily transport. Airport pickup / drop off service ( $25). Local trips cost about $5/hr ( perhaps less when just waiting for you, as you eat in a restaurant or visit a museum, for example). The actual rate depends on distance driven..ie petrol use.
Wireless Wi-Fi available: no problem. When I'm here I work on my computer by tethering to hotspot with a 3g smart phone, The signal is usually good because we have a cell tower on our street. I created this listing & other websites this way. We have a hotspot wireless device for guest use that does the same thing. You can Skype also.
Honey Tree can arrange for Balinese massage at the villa ( about $10/hr)
Indonesian food is available near by, but no western resturants yet, so stock up your kitchen with western staples. For western dining out we drive to Ubud. Ubud has over 200 resturants wirh every kind of food available: american, italian, mexican, vegitarian, ..its all there.
Our location is central to everything on Bali ( we are in the geographic center of the island) but you will need some means of transport. We have three bicycles free for your use. Helmets, and a child seat. You can rent a car or motor scooter rather cheaply ( we will help you if you want) and drive yourself. Even more convenient, just take advantage of Kadek's very affordable car & driver/guide service. Its almost as cheap as driving yourself, and much more relaxing.
If you are lucky enough to spend a month or more on Bali, consider using Honey Tree Villa as your home base. Our monthly rate is so affordable, you can go off on weekend trips from time to time, for surfing, scuba, city night life, or whatever adventures your Bali heart desires. :) I do it myself, when I come for two or three months each winter. I like to scuba, for example, so I might go to Amed or Tulamben or Lombok for a few days. After a period of hard play in the sun, its so good to return to the refreshing green oasis of the Honey Tree.
Long stay or short, our staff will help you with any of your needs. We have 11 reviews on airbnb. These give a realistic picture of the Honey Tree Villa experience. Please check them out. Bed linens, towels, kitchen utensils, and bath soap all included in the price. Gardener & pool service included. Every morning the yard is swept clean of leaves that have fallen the night before.
In short... Life is sweet at the Honey Tree ! :)TripAdvisor property ID 3349164...Read more

The villa was great, Kadek was great, Jacksi the dog was adorable. Thoroughly enjoyed our time at the villa. The only complaint is that maybe it is a little remote for spur of the moment activities or going out to dinner unless you are self driving which we were not. Kadek was very obliging and a great host and driver. The area is lovely and the villa is very comfortable and clean. I would highly recommend this villa for both amenities and value for money. Internet works well, pool is great, kitchen is good. If your after a place in the centre of the action this villa will not be for you but if you want a peaceful, relaxing stay, close to nature and the real Bali experience then this is the place.
