Lovely bamboo gazebo-cottage with workshop in Penestanan-Ubud for rent. Suitable for creative people. The gazebo is part of a balinese compound and is located in the center of Penestanan, next to shops and restaurants and a hotel with swimming pool.

The Gazebo is a beautiful structure and space made of bamboo, surrounded by small ponds with fish and green bamboo. There is an outdoor space where you can hang around, practice yoga or work with your art project. The bedroom is upstairs, with a double bed and a small space for meditation. The bathroom is semi-outdoor and made with beautiful nature materials such as stone and bamboo. The kitchenette is small and made by recycled wood and has a small cocking plate, a small sink and a small fridge. There is also a seating area with a table and chairs and a daybed for relaxation.

The space has been created in a sense that you will find all the necessities you need for your stay, on a small condense and very beautiful space. Being part of a Balinese compound also give you a sense of protection and allow you to focus inward and turn off the world outside.

My caretaker will look after you and will assist you if you have any questions or special request like need of transport, breakfast, laundry service etc. The space will be cleaned daily and the sheets and towels changed regular.

The space is located in the center of the vibrant Penestanan area, in a nice and safe neighborhood were many western people live. The area has many nice restaurants and shops. It is located next to Kue Bakery and Sari Organic and 3 min away from Alchemy. Next door is a nice hotel where you can have a swim in the pool for the cost of a coffee or a drink.

To Ubud center it is a 15-20 min walk or 5 min on the scooter.

I stayed twice at Maria's place - it's a wonderfully located, beautifully designed spot ideally for people looking for a refuge from the bustle of central Ubud. Highly recommended!

If your are looking for an unique outdoor experience this is your place! I stayed for one week and I loved it. The neighborhood is so nice with walking distance to Intuitive Flow yoga and lot of good restaurants. Quite a lot of noise from the street though so if you are sensitive this is not a place for you. Hope to be back soon again!

Had a great time at Maria's. It's a unique and beautiful place to stay that offers an experience worth your time in an area full of the same old hotels. The caretakers were very polite and helpful and just had a lovely experience overall.

Maria's place is great for those couple or single who love to be close to Penestanan's stretch of vegetarian to rawfood and boutique/shops. It's exactly 5 minutes from everywhere around Penestanan Kelod. For those who is/are on a short trip and basically needs basic bed and and shower and some private and spacy space in the middle of shophouses, Marian's place is great deal. I love the energy of traditional bamboo and stones structure and interior, an eco-friendly one, that she puts in it. I can her attention to detail and love in it. Also her creation of fabric she's using for decorating and linens which are available for selling at her store jus in front of this private space. Ketut her caretaker has been very open and a good listener. She's been attending to my need and basically open to many idea to make myself more comfortable at Maria's place. The small pantry/kitchenette is useful for those who love to prepare ur own breakfast or simply want to make shake, smoothie, or juice. Or simply to prepare something light and sink and faucet available. The living area isn't that big but it could be useful for those who need some space like artists. You can customise this to your need and comfort. The overall space is well-designed according to need and efficiency. Overall I had memorable time staying there for 2 weeks.

Funky, unique living space. Plenty of privacy as it's tucked away behind a gallery/shop. Very artistic decor, an open air space with a couch and "hang out" area; a kitchenette and open air bathroom in the downstairs area of the main gazebo; and a tree-house-esque bedroom upstairs. You won't find creature comforts like air conditioning or king size bed - instead you'll find a modest mattress and a little fan. If you're looking for a Shangri La experience, this isn't that, but what it is, is a really cool glamping style living quarters that makes you feel at one with nature and the true essence of Bali. A bonus addition to the already amazing accommodation was the very friendly and hospitable caretaker - Ketut. With a warm and genuine smile, she went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect, even going as far as offering to organise scooter hire and transport to the airport through another friendly local. Thanks heaps Maria and Ketut!

We had a lovely, relaxing stay at Maria's. The gazebo is beautiful and was located within walking distance to the centre of Ubud - yet in a quieter area, with nice restaurants nearby. There is a lounge, bathroom, small kitchen and upstairs bedroom - meaning it is very spacious, and filtered water was provided! Check in/out was easy due to the lovely Ketut who works in the shop out front, who also kept the gazebo clean and tidy and was available to help organise activities/laundry/scooters. Thank you very much Maria for a lovely stay in Ubud.

Even though I didn't meet Maria in person, we kept in close contact throughout my stay. She also helped me arrange transport to/form the airport with local driver Wira. The stay itself was one of my favorite Airbnb experiences thus far. I really appreciated the Balinese style loft with comfortable bed, fountain, and the outdoor shower. Everything I needed was within walking distance including my favorite place to hang out in Ubud - Alchemy. Thank you for the perfect stay Maria!

I am an architect, textile designer and artisan. I love space, structures and patterns. I come to Bali every year for the beauty of the culture, the people, the artwork and the architecture. I also come to Calascio in Italy for the same reasons,, I have built some personal and creative places. I hope you will enjoy the stay!
