Rumah Jempiring (which means Gardenia House) was built two year agos, but was extensively refurbished and landscaped last month.
It's located in the rice fields of Penestanan, a short walk up from the main road and along a narrow path.
Our location ensures privacy and quiet, away from the traffic and insanity of downtown Ubud, but close enough to walk there in 10-15 minutes, or take a car or bike to town.
Jempiring is a wonderful self-contained bungalow with everything you need for a relaxing visit.
It has a king-sized bed, good quality bed linen and towels, air con, a garden bathroom with shower, sun loungers, private pool, walled garden, TV/DVD player and a fully equipped kitchen.
Our housekeepers come by daily to clean and cook breakfast (thought by many to be the best in Ubud), with a choice of eggs, french toast, mie goreng (Indonesian noodles), pancakes, black rice pudding, and of course our artisan breads, homemade jams, yoghurt, and tropical fruits.
We live in the best neighborhood in Ubud with many restaurants, yoga studios, galleries, clothing shops, and a great supermarket a stones throw away. It's a little bit off the beaten path, but many people like it that way.
Walk out your front door and turn right and you'll find yourself in the middle of the rice fields, surrounded by ducks and old men in straw hats working the land.
Walk down to the main road, and drivers will be waiting in front of Bintang market for your business.
We also have a couple of very reliable drivers who speak English well and are available for airport transportation and touring.
We have been renting our houses through Air BNB for 5 years and its been a great experience for both us and our guests. This house is just being listed and won't have any don't be fooled. It has been furnished to the same standards of all our houses, and you will be treated as family by our have the opportunity for a really unique Bali experience.
Guests will have private access to everything at Rumah Jempiring, and be served a hot home made breakfast daily.
Interaction with Guests
We live very close by, and come over to welcome our guests and give them information about our neighborhood. We can also provide information, recommendations and referrals for tours, transportation, cooking classes, baby sitters etc.
Our neighborhood is becoming very popular and has many new restaurants, art galleries, spas, and yoga studios opening all the time. It has become a magnet for people wanting to visit Ubud, but not wanting to be in the midst of the madness.
Everything is within walking you like to walk. Otherwise there are always car and motor bike drivers available to take you to Ubud central for a nominal fee.
Other Things to Note
We are located up 10 fairly steep steps and about 150 meters along the path. This house is not accessible by car or bike and is not appropriate for people with limited abilities to walk. My husband and are are in our 70's and walk it many times daily.
