I am a travel writer who has chosen my favorite homes around the world. The Bali Buddha Villa is my home when I am in Bali. I rent the villa when I am visiting family and away on business
Living at the Bali Buddha Villa is like living in the Garden of Eden with a large, private lush tropical flower-filled garden, 9x3 meter salt water pool, & rice paddy & jungle views. Best of all, it is only 5 min by car from Ubud.
The 2-story stately rock-faced villa has a wrap-around veranda and is top quality throughout. The beds are made of antique Javanese wood. There are ceiling fans throughout the villa and verandah, and many windows for cross ventilation. AC in the downstairs bedroom. There are carved Balinese statues throughout the garden. The guesthouse in the garden (bedroom #3) is in a restored Balinese Lumbong with a kitchenette, lounge area & garden bathroom below.
The downstairs floor of the main villa is a large bdrm w desk and lounge area with A.C., TV, and hand carved Javanese 4-poster bed w mosquito net .The ensuite bathroom is large & features lava rock walls, separate free-standing shower & terrazzo tub. Walk out onto the veranda facing the jungle.
Also on the first floor is the dining area facing the jungle, and a large kitchen with a walk-in pantry. Includes a Vitamix blender, juicer, dehydrator, & barbeque grill. It is fully stocked w top quality appliances, dishes & pans. The kitchen is partially open to the jungle on one side & a small inner courtyard on the other.
There is a spiral staircase leading to the upstairs large bdrm room w high ceilings, lots of windows looking out over the rice paddy & jungle w sliding glass doors to a balcony overlooking the jungle. A king size hand carved bed, seating area, & a lovely wood desk complete the bedroom w ensuite bathroom. The windows have mosquito netting and there is Balinese art throughout. The ensuite bathroom contains a large terrazzo bathtub shower combo with windows out to the rice paddys. And of course a counter with sink.
The bedrooms in the main villa have separate entrances making them especially private.
The living area is on the spacious, L-shaped veranda, looking out over the jungle, garden and pool. It has several seating areas & a koi pond at one end. Several overhead ceiling fans will keep you cool.
There is a laundry room w washer & dryer just under a second covered staircase leading to the upstairs bedroom from the verandah.
The best part of this villa is its lush and very private, peaceful garden on the edge of the jungle w rice paddys on the other 3 sides, where you can watch wildlife from the comfort of your large veranda, while being only a 5-min drive to town.
We have an adorable house kitty named Cleopatra, who keeps the critter population down in the villa and the affection factor up with our guests!
'Made' the English-speaking house cleaner comes 4-5 hours per day, 6 days a week to prepare breakfast & clean. She can help with shopping, laundry & prep of other meals for a small fee that she negotiates w you, as well as help you find drivers, rent scooters & all your other needs. I do not add a service fee to the rate, as I prefer to let guests tip if they wish.
We have several wonderful English-speaking drivers at your disposal who charge a nominal fee. Using our driver for your pickup is highly recommended as the villa does not have a sign or address from the street and can be hard to find if the driver is unfamiliar with it.
Airport pickup is $35. Drop off is $30.
Scooter rental is $5 per day, auto rental $25 per day, or hire your own driver with his own czar for $40 half day, $60 full day, & about $5 per trip into town. Made or Wayan can arrange this for you

This villa has amazing energy that I have not found anywhere else in Ubud! We look forward to hosting you at the beautiful Bali Buddha Villa.

Additional Location Information
Absolutely stunning location just 2 km from downtown Ubud. Jalan Suweta, the street on which the villa is located, is where Ubud's main palace is. Only a 5 min drive to town. There are many rice paddy walks in the area. It's the perfect combination of convenience and getting away from it all into real Bali. There is a small village called Sakti, just north of the villa, and there are at least 2 restaurants within a few minutes walk of the villa.
The villa is set in a lush garden with salt water pool. On one side is the jungle and on the other 3 sides are rice paddies.
Street parking for cars, and motorcycle parking just outside the villa's gate.
There is a short (2 min) inspiring walk through the rice paddys to the villa from the street.
