The space

Ours is a post and beam home constructed without nails in a truly unique fashion. The Japanese style sliding doors allow you to completely join the indoor and outdoor spaces or slide them shut for more privacy. The upstairs bedroom gives views of the rice fields and the jungle right from your bed! Amazing to wake up to! This is our dream home but until we can stay all year, we will share it with you.

Guests have their own private garden and plunge pool as well as fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. The house also has a tv with dvd player (no cable), movie library and book library (take one/ and or leave one). Wifi access and small office area in home. Also part of a small compound of 12 houses that share a larger garden space, pool, courtyards and staff always available. Breakfast cooked for you in the house each day is included as well as daily cleaning. Towels and linens supplied.

I am available by email for any and all issues, questions or celebrations but live in Canada so am not on property and the time difference can be difficult. Wayan is our on site manager and there are night security if you arrive late. We recommend booking a local driver to pick you up as some drivers from farther away have struggled with directions. There is also a staff that includes cleaners, cooks and gardeners available as needed. You will be pampered!

I love that fact that our house and compound are tucked away. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere with the rice field views and the farmers walking by but are only just out of Ubud by foot or a bike ride. Our staff are all local and if you are interested are always willing to take you to local ceremonies and include you in their culture or come to the house and cook for you. To me, we have the perfect balance of local flavour and culture with the comforts of home. That is why we chose the house!

Local drivers can be hired through the staff or you can just walk out to the street and wait for a honk. Town is also easily accessible by walking, biking or a quick ride on a scooter. Cars, scooters and bikes can be rented from the staff. And if all that is too much, most of the local restaurants deliver!

The shallow cool water plunge pool is a great place to hang out if the pool is crowded or a nice place to let your children splash about safely. Plus we have loungers and beanbag chairs on our separate patios. The house is not huge but it is comfortable and cozy!

This really is an inside/outside house which we hadn't fully appreciated! If that's what your looking for them this is a great experience. Had to get taxis every day to Ubud but they weren't expensive. Only thing was we arrived late at night and no-one was there to let us in …

Response from MIchele:
Glad our driver was able to sort things out. I know you were looking forward to your time there. Even with the late arrival, our night watchmen should have been there to greet you as they stay all night. Hope we see you again.

We had a wonderful few weeks staying in this home, waking up to the sights and sounds of nature and enjoying the hospitality of the local community. The staff are very helpful and the location was great for getting into and around Ubud. Michele is a very gracious host. Thank you!

Michele's house is an absolute gem tucked in a wonderful like-minded community, surrounded by nature. I was amazed by the butterflies, lizards, geckos, frogs and dragonfly's that visited every single day. It was stunning! You need to be comfortable with rustic style living, but …

Had a lovely stay. Very nice pool with great views of the rice field. Staff not always reachable and I don't recommend walking into Ubud due to traffic but it's super easy to travel by taxi or scooter. We enjoyed our stay very much.
