The perfect getaway: This truly unique Zen hideaway is a gorgeous riverfront 2-level wood house located 20 minutes drive from Ubud.
This 150-year-old teak house was constructed and redesigned by its Japanese Zen master owner for his practices in chic yet rustic wabi-sabi aesthetic. The monumental view from this special residence needs to be seen to be believed: the mighty Ayung river, the valley, a huge waterfall, surrounding rice fields and Mount Agung, as far as the eye can see.
Our residence, on two floors, comprises a huge open-air living & dining space; 1 master bedroom; a separate 1-bedroom guesthouse/meditation room; a small study room with AC, extra bed and work desk; a big open-air well-equipped kitchen; large parking area; Wi-Fi internet.
2 housekeepers come to the property 6 days a week to clean.
Zugang für Gäste
You'll have access to the 2-story main house (with one large bedroom and an extra bed in the study room) and also to the small guest house (also with one bedroom), which is its own secluded paradise connected by a charming wood footbridge to the main house. (Please note there is just one full bathroom serving both dwellings.)
Please kindly understand that the swing area on the grass is the common space of this estate. You may occasionally find us or other guests from Zen Hideaway #1 are using the swing. Please join us, or simply enjoy watching them screaming :)
Interaktion mit Gästen
We normally live on the property too (in a house about 100 meters away) so we will often be around to help you check in, answer any questions and just to chat and tell you about Ubud!
When we're away, our friendly neighbor and housekeeper will be around to handle any issues.
Weitere wichtige Infos
If needed, we can help arranging transportation from/to the airport (IDR300,000 each way). If you have a smartphone with Indonesian SIM, you can use an app to order foods from various restaurants in Ubud and get them delivered easily.
Other than a few roadside shops, there isn't much activity here - no bars or cafes or shopping - which is why we love it. It's a perfect spot for writers, contemplators, yogis & yoginis, thinkers, readers and relaxers.
However, please note that there is a 50 meter Olympic-sized swimming pool 5 min away from our house for swimmers. Our favorite beach, Canggu, is only 50 min away for surfers.
Nevertheless, if what you're after isn't a getaway, being close to the Ubud action, maybe best to consider another property.
Please also note that although our home is absolutely beautiful and super cozy, it is not a typical 'luxury villa' where everything works perfectly all the time. We and our staff will do our best to take care of any issues as quickly as possible.
Our house is built entirely from wood, so for safety reasons we are a non-smoking home and expect guests to respect this by not smoking anywhere near the dwelling. If you must smoke, we ask that you do this out on the steps below the house or down on the grassy area below, and carefully dispose of any cigarette butts.
Since we are part of a traditional Balinese village, we ask that our guests also treat all neighbors and other villagers with respect. Thank you! :)
