Imagine waking up to the sound of the rushing river. Our home is perched in the tree tops, sharing the same vista as the Maya Ubud, a 5 star resort. A spacious grand room. with ironwood floors throughout, is the perfect place for relaxing, yoga, or whatever your special pleasure is.
This is a perfect location for a family gathering, wedding party, or a small retreat or workshop. While we have two bedrooms with three queens beds, we also have 4 Balinese Sofas, (so can sleep an additional 4 pers) There are additional rates for these type of functions and we will discuss them with you individually.
Stunning wrap around glass windows surround the master bedroom, with uninterrupted views of the valley, tree tops and the river from every seat. The bedroom has a custom made, beautiful teak wood bed, with flat screen TV, cable and air con. The ensuite living room and bedroom are finished in polished terrazzo.
The second bedroom shares the same views with an en suite bath.
It shares the same 5 star views as the main house and has its own private entrance. It offers a beautiful, air con studio, with a TV for watching DVD's and IPod ready for music. It's cozy, comfy and it has WIFI!
A modern kitchen finished in boat wood and polished cement comes with all amenities. My home has WIFI throughout, stereo, Bose IPod docks, and a fine library of books to relax with. We are 5 minutes from the center of Ubud by car and we have staff who can help with everything you may need.
This is our primary home and we do many home exchanges as well as renting it out. That being the case, you will find our home very personal with many belongings at the house....books, movies, clothing, food, etc. We ask that whoever stays honors our belongings as much as we do. The house is to be used only by the people who are renting it. If you are planning a reunion or a party, this must be discussed with us in advance. including how many people will attend, etc.
We also have three adorable daschunds, a momma and her two children. They are quite affectionate and staff takes care of all their needs. If you are not a dog person, arrangements can be made for their housing.
Also for those who worry about traveling in the 3rd world with water issues, our house is fed by natural spring water which has been certified as suitable for drinking. You won't need to worry about the water here
...one last thing, my home is also fully staffed with a housekeeper and gardener, so you won't have to lift a finger... It'll prove to be the perfect holiday getaway....Read more

Additional Location Information
We are 5-10 minutes away by car from the center of Ubud in the village of Pejeng...still very close but in a beautiful green area that is quiet and serene.
We are on the way to Tampaksiring, the Holy Water Temple, that is a must do for all visitors. Also many bikers love this region as you are out of "central" and able to enjoy the rice paddies and scenery.
We can arrange a driver for you, or motor scooters if you are more adventurous....We also have parking at our home if you have your own car.
Left on 10/20/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | EveReviewed Oct 20, 2013Stayed Aug 2013
The beautiful photos are what first attracted us to this place but reality exceeded our expectations. We literally said 'Wow' when we walked in the front door.
The open plan living area is huge and beautifully furnished - really stunning. The bedrooms are also large, tastefully furnished and oomfortable with great views over the surrounding forest.
We made good use of the swimming pool which is spring fed so no fried hair from chlorine or salt. There is a great selection of books and CDs and plenty of comfy spots to enjoy relax and enjoy them. I went to sleep every night to the relaxing sound of the river and woke to dappled light through the forest trees along with squirrels, birds and butterflies - heaven.
The staff were lovely and there was always someone around to help. We enjoyed a breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt and granola every morning and the housekeeper Jero even prepared us a couple of traditional Balinese meals which were among the best we had in Ubud.
We loved the company of the little dogs too - very well behaved and friendly.
This is a truly unique home and our stay was all and more than what we hoped for. I can't recommend it enough!
