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. It now has windows that open and aircon, although its cool enough at night not to need it. 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.

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.

For western dining out we drive to Ubud. There you will find over 200 resturants wirh every kind of food : 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. Take advantage of Kadek's very affordable car & driver/guide service. Its almost as cheap as driving yourself, and much more relaxing.
