About our home

A fantastically located hidden gem, our romantic, architect-designed 130sqm one-bedroom home offers the magic of open-air Bali-style tropical living a short, gentle stroll away from Ubud's myriad temples, galleries, restaurants, boutiques, spas, yoga centres (yet worlds away from the bustle of the main streets).
Overlooking the family temple next door, the open-sided, fan-cooled 7m x 6m living area with its high vaulted ceiling and fish pond incorporates a casual lounging area, dining area with antique teakwood table and seating for six, and a well-equipped kitchen. Up a few steps is the 4m x 5m air-conditioned and fan-cooled bedroom, with comfortable super-kingsize bed dressed in fine cotton bed-linen, a dressing alcove with shelving and hanging area, and a garden bathroom. Sliding doors in front of the bed open onto a terrace with seating, facing a moss-covered Buddha statue and surrounded by tropical blooms.

Throughout, contemporary details like polished concrete walls and textured stone floors mix with traditional twists such as antique Javanese doors, reclaimed ironwood counters ,heritage tiles and stone statues.

A small hotel two minutes down the lane will let you use their pool for a small daily charge, and there are several 'destination' pools elsewhere in Ubud.

Our staff will take care of cleaning and gardening. (For like-for-like swaps, they are included, but for points trips we do ask for a modest contribution of US$10 a day.) You can also engage our housekeeper to cook for you (everything from a simple meal to a multi-course Indonesian buffet), or stage a cooking class for you; many of our guests say her food is the best they had in Indonesia! We can organise a massage for you in the villa, organise scooter hire, and also introduce you to a reliable and charming driver for airport pick-up and fascinating day trips.

This is the perfect place for a couple (or a solo traveller) seeking privacy and security. It may be available at short notice for points trips or non-simultaneous exchange. You are welcome to message me on tamanamidabali@gmail.com to chat first before confirming a swap.
