About our home

Our place in Ubud is called Stone's been several years of our blood, sweat and tears.

My husband is an entrepreneur, furniture designer and is on a life-long quest to create beautiful things. I am a travel writer and whimsical artist. As such, we have painstakingly been building our property for over several years and have now created a rambling estate. Adjacent to the main house, is a gorgeous free-form 18m swimming pool, surrounded by stunning landscaping. Surrounding the pool are three uniquely designed rooms which can accommodate a total of eight people. The Longhouse is a wooden villa built entirely of reclaimed wood, which sits on stilts and juts into the jungle. It is quite dramatic, as it perches over a small river, with a view of the rice paddies just a few meters away.

The style is authentic Balinese, rustic chic, with a touch of luxury. Since my husband is a creator of all sorts, all of the furniture has been hand-crafted by our carpenters and made in our workshop. As such, the entire property has been custom-designed by him. Everything has been carefully curated by both of us. Since we love to travel and buy all sorts of treasures, you'll find interesting artwork, sculptures, antiques and textiles that all have a story and a soul.

It is ideal for a couple looking for a private retreat, or small family requiring a few rooms, or someone who wants to enjoy all that Ubud has to offer; museums, temples, or a plethora of wellness activities. During your stay, you will be well looked after by our team of attentive and discreet staff who have worked with us for years; housekeepers, cook, grounds manager and driver. They are dedicated to looking after you to create a truly memorable and luxurious experience in Bali.

We have one daughter who attends an innovative, sustainable, all bamboo school in the jungle...Green School. Our royal mascots Lulu and Bella, love playing fetch, or having their belly rubbed. We hope you love dogs too.

Our place, Stone House has recently been featured in The Economist 1843 Magazine, The Telegraph as one of the ten best places to visit in Bali, Conde Nast Traveller UK, the Boston Globe and Qatar's inflight magazine.

We will be as careful with your home as we are with ours.


Our place is a boutique b & b and depending upon the number of guests in your group, we DO NOT swap our entire place as we have just added two new rooms called Treehouse and Farmhouse, totaling six guest rooms.

We offer our Longhouse guest suite (which is a separate free-standing room with three porches) featured on our site for a couple (the most private, free-standing house with three porches at Stone House), or our entire place if you are traveling with a large family. We always swap the amount of rooms required to accommodate our /your be discussed during our correspondence.

Our place comes fully staffed with a team of 16; manager, housekeepers, two chefs, driver, gardeners, and nighttime security. As such, we ask all of our swap guests to pay US$30 per night/per bedroom which includes the most amazing breakfast you can imagine and service charge which is split amongst our staff. Our staff will look after you during your visit here. Should you wish, they will make the most delicious breakfasts for you and make you feel like this is your home away from home during your stay.

Where is it?


We are 2km north of Ubud's main east/west road, Jalan Raya Ubud. Far away from the hustle and bustle of Ubud, but close enough to go into town for shopping, a stroll through the market, or a meal. We are located in the village of Kutuh Kaja and there are a few small warungs (cafes) located within a five minute walk of our place. Although our place is on the outskirts of the village, one of our rooms sits above the jungle, overlooking the rice paddies.
