RICE FIELD, TROPICAL JUNGLE HIDEAWAY

Ubud Villa Rental Photos and Description

100 m2 luxurious 1 bedroom, 1 bath, veranda, pool

Nestled in the rice fields of Tegalalang district in central Bali is Talidandan Villa, just 5 kilometers north of Ubud. Designed by famed Dutch architect, Joost Van Grieken this warm minimalist design combines the stark simplicity of Japan with the open tropical refreshment of Bali. The villa is surrounded by a jungle, river, hill and rice fields of Gianyar Regency, the cultural and artistic center of Bali Island. Set a bit apart and out of sight from the owner’s pavilions, the cottage is a 100 m2 self-contained 1-room unit with its own entrance, veranda, kitchen, shower and a shared 13-meter swimming pool. This is an ideal place for 1 or 2 persons who want a quiet retreat, away from busy city life. The villa has been featured in architectural publications.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • smoking allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Christina Welty

After living in Asia nearly half my life (Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong) I fulfilled a dream and built my own home and the adjacent rental cottage in this delightful and serene setting of Bali in 2002. I live adjacent to the cottage and share the pool though rarely seeing the guests. I am available to help with arrangements and suggestions to make the your stay in Bali a truly memorable one. Seven years ago I established a computer program in the local elementary school – 130 children, 2 teachers, 6 computers and occasional volunteers.

Christina Welty purchased this villa in 2002

Why Christina Welty chose Ubud

Many of us live busy and hectic lives in urban areas. We seek peace with a slower pace surrounded by nature. Talidandan is tucked into a natural cul-de-sac with sounds of nearby flowing water hidden behind the garden on one side, a jungle on the other and rice fields bordering the swimming pool. Human tension seems to evaporate and be inhaled by the vast foliage of the surrounding nature.

What makes this villa unique

The villa was constructed in 2002 by a top hotel builder using the finest materials - tightly woven alang-alang, grass roof, coconut posts in the veranda, rock steps across the pond. For those who appreciate design and art, Talidandan is exquisitely appointed with the finest furnishings and art… antique reed doors from Kyoto, Japan, Japanese paper window and lamps, paintings from well known Ubud artist’s Ngurrah KK, Wayan Kotir and Pantir cover the walls. A large textile from Threads of Life sponsored Lamalera village women’s craft hangs above the bed. Hand drawn bakit cloth cover the pillows. For those who want deep quiet in the arms of nature’s abundant arms this is the place to bring serenity to your spirit.

Serenity -- pure and simple

  • 5 of 5
Talidandan is an exceptional property amid the rice paddies above Ubud. Stop at the grocery store on your way there because you won't want to leave once you're there. Beautifully built and maintained, there was nothing to complain of -- unless you're looking for traffic noise, loud discos, or exhaust clogged air. Also, bring books to read. The staff are helpful but not intrusive in the least. Massage at a reasonable price can be arranged and will come to the house. Massage tables are by the pool. If you must go into town much, you'll need to rent scooters, although taxis can be arranged. Our week at Talidandan was the most relaxing we have had anywhere in the world.
