Villa Nangka - Private, tranquil, glorious views
Villa Nangka (Jackfruit Villa) is situated on the edge of Ubud's well known artistsâ€™ village of Penestanan. Just an hour from the airport and 500m above sea level, guests enjoy a more temperate climate than the coast.
The villa is a private and secure two-bedroom residence situated on a quiet walking and bike lane in the Penestanan rice fields. It provides the ideal place for relaxing and enjoying Ubud's unique cultural and dining experiences. This quality villa provides river views and is a short walk from several local restaurants, spa complexes, yoga studios and a supermarket.
It is a 25min walk to the centre of Ubud or 300m walk to the nearest road and taxi-stand where you can find a trip to Ubud central (just a 5min drive) for about 3USD. Once in the villa you are in your own tropical paradise, free to relax and enjoy the privacy of the gardens, listening to the stream, watch fireflies and make use of the swimming pool and other facilities.
Although you cannot drive up to the villa (if you could it wouldnâ€™t be so peaceful and relaxing) there is a 300 meter footpath leading from the house to the main road (Jalan Chumphuan). And another track (400 meters) that allows walking and motorbike access from Penestanan village.
The villa features:
A large 2.5m X 7m pool with a view of tropical gardens, the river valley and jungle.
A spacious main bedroom with en-suite bathroom, king sized bed. This bedroom has a ceiling fan as well as air-conditioning and a hotel safe.
A second bedroom with 2 single beds that come together as another king sized bed. This bedroom also has a ceiling fan, air-conditioning, ensuite bathroom and hotel safe..
An open air living/dining/kitchen area overlooking the pool and valley below.
The fully equipped kitchen features gas cooking facilities, refrigerator and a water cooler.
The living area has a beautiful cathedral timber ceiling with ceiling fans. It also features an inviting day bed, large flat screen TV

I stayed here to get away from the mad work rush and to recharge and it was perfect. You can take walks through the rice paddies at the back or find interesting eating places when no cars can go, walk to the more accessible places or you can do what I did and rent a bike to go into town.
The pool is great and very private, the view from the daybed exquisit, and the rooms and bathrooms spacious. The aC works well even though the fans will be enough during the cooler times.
Someone comes in to make breakfast and clean, etc. at times that suit you.
All in all a super location for what I wanted and I will be back

2 adults and 2 teenagers had a perfect wind down at the villas in Ubud. A lovely quiet location, morning bird chorus, rice paddies to wander through, yet still close to warungs, shops, massages etc. Service was excellent and breakfast looked forward to each day. We'll be back!

Villa Nangka was such an amazing find. Nestled amongst lovely restaurants and out of the hustle and bustle of Ubud. The villa has everything you require and more!
This is the second time we have stayed in one of Steve's villas and we can't speak highly enough of them.

We were the first guests ever to stay in Villa Nangka and we were not disappointed. The brand new villa is great for couples or friends. There are two bedrooms with private bathrooms. You will have to mind the steps, so very young children moving around the house might not be good to consider. The house is nicely secluded as well. Because the villa is on a hill-side of the river valley you won't have sun the whole day. Good side is that you won't sweat whole day.
It is also recommended to rent a motorbike to move around. Warungs/small restaurants are within 5 minutes walk. Going into Ubud takes you 10-15 minutes by motor bike and will give you also plenty of eating and massage opportunities. Check tripadvisor for some suggestions on what to do in the area.
The villa was brand new, and so was the homeboy. He was very kind and helpful and did a great job. Nevertheless, we gave the property owner some minor feedback for him. I am sure that those things are taken into account for future guests.
Ask for a discount if you stay in the villa with two, in stead of four, people.
We can totally recommend Villa Nangka and trust you will have a wonderful stay!

A bargin. New, clean villa, great layout, many extras. A bit far from central Ubud, but peaceful area, many good eateries. Perfect for families with teens / tweens or two couples. Many steps, green views.

This newly completed Villa is a real find. Beautifully built and with views overlooking a tropical valley from it's dining & TV terrace. On the terrace below is a wonderful swimming pool with a surrounding wall to give you privacy. There are two very comfortable air-conned bedrooms with their own well appointed en-suites. While the gardens are young they are well thought out and will enhance the beauty of this villa in time.
Wayan is your room-boy and is keen to be helpful and assist you with your stay in his local area.
There is a short walk from where a car drops you and 29 stairs to climb but exercise is worth the effort.Motorbikes have assess to the base of you stairs.
Easy walk from this Villa is the 'eat street' of Penestanan. So many great places to eat: Bayu's Kitchen (live music on Wed & Sunday nights), LalaLili's,BuBu's, Sharaswati (Indian Veg), Sari Organic, Kue and Vespa to name a few. Again Spas (like Eve Spa) and Yoga (Intuitive Flow) are also within 10 mins walking. Central Ubud is less then 30mins walk away or 10 by motorbike or car.
