Overview

Ubud Villa Rental Photos and Description

Look No Further! Your perfect 2BR villa in the rice fields, 13 mn walk to Ubud

Brand new Villa Serena is a stylish two bedroom luxury villa located in the rice fields along the famous Juwuk Manis rice field walk. Fine Balinese art and antiques are stunningly combined with 5 star Western amenities to create the perfect environment for your Bali experience. Villa Serena feels instantly like you are coming home!

Both spacious upstairs bedroom suites share a huge veranda with expansive views of the lush rice fields and come with new King size pillowtop mattresses, soft pillows, and luxurious linens. Mosquito netting, safety box and air conditioning are also there for your comfort. Each bathroom has cream terazzo, granite counters and Rainshower shower heads. The South/Master bedroom suite boasts a separate bouganvilla terrace outside the window. The semi outdoor bathroom, full of plants, has a large terrazo tub for a good soak after your rice field walk and a massage. The North bathroom suite also has Rainshower fixtures, terazzo and granite with lots of hot water.

Downstairs, you are surrounded by a fantastic collection of Balinese art and one-of-a-kind antiques. Two soft comfortable sofas and a reading chair with ottoman are perfect for a book or watching the 43' flat Plasma screen TV with satellite channels galore. There is also a half bath off the lounge. There are many books to read, videos to choose from, and a DVD/CD player with good volume speakers. Wifi is currently available throughout the villa, and we are already wired for lightning fast fibre optic cable that should be installed any time. You will find brochures on places to go, lots of menus, and a binder with insider suggestions for your trip. All of the villa's furniture is custom designed and handmade in Bali, and the lighting is good for reading in your two big chairs with ottomans. Perfect for dining al fresco is the indoor/outdoor table with seating for 6. Flowering orchids can be seen throughout the villa.

We designed Villa Serena to take advantage of the beautiful views and traditional outdoor living, but also for the ability to close doors, cool with air conditioning, and lock up. By the sparkling pool are several sunbeds and a large umbrella, as well as a beautiful wooden bale' pavilion with traditional ylang ylang roof for reading, breakfast, a massage, or contemplating nature. Mature landscaping and flowering plants are everywhere, blending perfectly with the lush green of the rice fields. The pool's Quan Yin water feature adds the bubbling sounds of running water to the already serene atmosphere.

Serena's kitchen has custom cabinets from Javanese teak, slab granite counters, stainless appliances and is fully equipped with everything you need and a lot you don't. On hand to cook for you is our lovely staff (there will be several), who will pamper you and tempt your palate with delicious Western or Balinese breakfast. You may have your choice of eggs any style, fruit, pancakes, fruit smoothie, juice, and coffee or tea. Our sweet staff will also be happy to make lunch or dinner, menu agreed to beforehand--you pay in advance for groceries, they will go to the market or store, and give you the change and your receipt. Staff arrives at 6:30-7:00 and leaves around 3, so she/they will leave the cooked food in the fridge and you can serve at your leisure. Our full time staff lives onsite and will open the villa in the morning as well as close the doors and curtains in the evening.

The villa also comes equipped with many thoughtful touches like shampoo, insect repellant, pool floaties, umbrellas, ponchos, flashlights, and magnifying makeup mirrors. You may also use our Bali cell phone for local calls during your stay, and it is pre-programmed with essential staff numbers in case you would like to be picked up in town on our motorbike shuttle.

About Kasey Petersen

My husband and I have been coming to Bali for over 25 years, and got married here in a Traditional Balinese Wedding Ceremony 18 years ago. We built our first Villa, Satori, 5 years ago and have loved it with a passion. We travel 6 months a year internationally, and yearn for Bali when we are not here. There is no place else on earth where you can be so submerged in culture and so welcomed, and eat so well. We live in Lake Tahoe (Northern California/Nevada)in the summer. We will be more than happy to assist with any travel needs or recommendations. Enjoy our special place!

Kasey Petersen purchased this villa in 2013

Why Kasey Petersen chose Ubud

For us, in Bali there was never a choice other than Ubud, with all its art and culture, galleries, and sensational restaurants. We fell deeply in love with the Ubud area, got involved in Rotary and working in the community, and finally found property very walkable to town and all its joys within 13 minutes. Villa Satori and our 4 new Satori villas are the culmination of our dream and we are thrilled to share it! Should you desire beaches, they are an easy day trip and 45 minutes away.

What makes this villa unique

The lush views took our breath away the moment we first set foot on the property. We knew immediately that this was our perfect place. Our first night staying in the villa was pure heaven--just the right amount of breeze--and unbelievable sunrises. You can roll out of bed and be at Yoga class in five minutes, or stay home in tranquility and do nothing peacefully. Convenient to all, close enough to walk to everything, but far enough away from crowds that you can just watch Balinese life go by. Be involved as much as you wish...Balinese people are very warm and welcoming and love to share their culture and ceremonies! Walking down our path gives you the true, authentic Bali feeling and there are smiles and friendly greetings from everyone. Dine out, have food delivered, or have our staff cook some delicious curries or special Bali dishes. You may never want to leave!

Really lovely

  • 5 of 5
My son and I stayed here for four nights. It is beyond lovely. It was comfortable. The villa is spacious with two large bedrooms and two porches plus a private pool.

The only downside is that it's on a footpath that begins with a fairly steep uphill. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with mobility issues.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter and I had a wonderful stay in the beautiful Villa Serena. All we regretted was that we had not spent our entire stay in Bali there! The villa was beautiful, brand new, 5 star fittings and the staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant. It was a little bit of a walk out of town but we were more than happy to be to escape to the peace and quiet of the rice fields. We would highly recommend Villa Serena and if back in Bali, we would certainly be looking to stay there again. The whole booking process was seamless and the information given completely accurate. Thank you for having us!

We had a wonderful couple of days relaxing in the rice fields and exploring the local area. The staff at the house were great and we loved the location and Ubud. Definite plans to be back for longer.

À très bientôt!

  • 5 of 5
The Greek word for «return» is nostos. Algos means «suffering». Nostalgia is exactly how I felt when I returned back home from such an exquisite piece of paradise. My daughter and I lived some very memorable moments in this villa. Kasey, the owner, and her dynamic staff members made sure our stay would be quite unforgettable! Which is exactly what it was. We will return for sure… À très bientôt chèrs amis!

Owner's Response: We so enjoyed having you and your darling daughter stay with us, and thank you for writing such a lovely review. Ayu loved taking you both shopping to some of our favorite insider places! Villa Serena is even more beautiful now than it was in January-- we have just finished adding a bale' gazebo by the pool with traditional ylang ylang roof, and table perfect for having breakfast or a cool drink overlooking the rice paddies. We look forward to your return this fall! All the staff send their best regards.

I had the opportunity to stay at Serena for 10 days wonderful days. The villa is brand new with all the Balinese influences and the comforts of home. The incredible staff treated us like royalty. Not only were we treated to delicious breakfasts, they spoiled us with constant attention.
The infinity pool and the loungers was perfect. The rooms spacious...bathrooms stunning.
Kasey and Rico were amazing hosts.
Thank you for making are vacation so memorable.

Owner's Response: You are most welcome, and your thoughtful, glowing 5 Star review is much appreciated! Many potential guests use reviews to help in choosing where to stay, and yours is our first (of many) five star reviews to come. Villa Serena and our nearby companion Satori Villas are the best choice for style, comfort, serenity, pampering and experiencing the joys of Bali. Life remains unhurried and authentically Balinese in our village, yet the villa is only a short walk to Ubud center. Cheers from all of us and we look forward to seeing you in June!

20 Metres
2 rice paddies away
Car: not necessary

Villa Serena is located at the start of famous Juwuk Manis rice field walk, and the 45 minute loop through the paddies and into Ubud and back is not to be missed. Don't forget to stop along the way at one of the lovely organic cafes (including famous Sari Organic) for a fresh cold juice! Make sure also to visit Threads of Life Gallery on our Kajeng Street, about 8 minutes walk and close to the center of Ubud. Kajeng, also known as Artist Street, has a wonderful variety of restaurants, spas, yoga classes, shops, artists and other galleries to enjoy on your leisurely walk into the center of Ubud--all within 13 minutes of our villa. There is a 3 minute walk up a sloping hill from the car drop off point, then another 3 minutes along the path to the villa, so not recommended for wheelchairs or people with mobility issues. Our staff are on hand at any time to take you/pick you up on our motorbike shuttle should you have heavy bags from all your shopping!

Notes:
Villa Santana is located at the start of famous Juwuk Manis rice field walk, and the 45 minute loop through the paddies and into Ubud and back is not to be missed. Don't forget to stop along the way at one of the lovely organic cafes (including famous Sari Organic) for a fresh cold juice. We have the perfect place and massage bed for a private in-villa massage, and the professional therapists are all very well trained and come personally highly recommended. One of our favorite experiences is to have lovely 12 yr old Putri, an accomplished and charismatic Balinese dancer, come to the villa for a special evening. Putri will start by putting on makeup, dressing in traditional Balinese costume, and explaining the dance that she performs. Especially wonderful for children, and she will interact, teach and put makeup on them as well as your husband if he is game. You will also learn about Bali Children's Project, where Putri's mother Eka works (250,000 donation requested)
