Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
We are originally from New York City, have lived in many places in the USA and are now building another home in Penestanan, Ubud. We have raised 5 children and 1 grandchild, who all love Bali as much as we do, and visit as often as they are able.
Barbara purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Barbara chose Tejakula
We purchased Villa Sunrise in May of 2004 after having seen it advertised on the internet while googling 'houses to buy in Bali'. It was built by a Swiss Trained Architect who is married to a Balinese and has lived on the island for about 15 years. It was designed to replicate a Black Forest chalet and is built of old growth teak wood, concrete and terrazo. As a realtor I'm aware that things aren't always as they appear, so I made the journey to Bali to see it for was everything I had hoped it would be. Over the years, we've made some improvments and hope to be able to continue to make some more. We visit our Villa whenever we can with our friends and family, and rent it out to the fortunate few when we're not there. We think of it as 'our little piece of heaven' and hope others will too. Enjoy!
What makes this Villa unique
Our Villa faces the North Bali Sea, which is extremely warm and gentle for swimming and snorkeling. The coral and fish are abundant, and you feel as if you've entered an aquarium. This is a unique place for rest, meditation, reading and discovery. The village has frequent temple ceremonies in which the Balinese are willing to allow you to participate. There is a morning market in the village, and various walks that you can take to nearby temples, the waterfalls and scenic sights.

The time we spent in Teja...
The time we spent in Tejakula at the Sunrise Villa/Gaia-Oasis was the most peaceful, relaxing and fun I have ever had on any vacation, ever. Rest and Relaxation was the goal of this trip, and the beautiful villa with Made's wonderful breakfasts, excellent massages from the wellness center, food and spirits from the restaurant and the overall ambiance delivered far above and beyond all expectations. It was very hard for me to leave, I wanted to stay. There is no doubt in my mind, I will return some day. Thank you so much Barbara, for sharing this incredible place - there is magic there, as I am sure you know.

Bali was incredible for us. The house was fabulous. Made was so lovely and so thorough and such a beautiful presence. You are very fortunate to have her there.
The resort was beautiful and the amenities were fantastic. It was relatively quiet while we were there. The people were so peaceful, the food was great!

The resort was beautiful and the amenities were fantastic. It was relatively quiet while we were there. The people were so peaceful, the food was great. The only sad thing was the scuba place we thought was five minutes down the beach was well over an hour away and Zoe had to leave for four days to scuba, so I was left on my own on a vacation meant to be spent with her!! Ahh well, we made it through and all turned out okay. Oh, I also enjoyed meeting the gentleman who lives behind the house – somehow his name slips my mind – I believe it was Ketut, because it wasn’t Wayan or Nyoman or Made!! His daughter was so cute – she only waved to me – very shy. I also loved the chickens and their babies!

As you make your way to the Sunrise Villa, the journey itself introduces you to the paradise you are in store for: insulated from the outside world, yet pampered with all the amenities one needs to feel comfortable so far from home. The house itself is a marvel, Made is an exceptional caretaker, Rai makes sure your connection with the outside world & all you wish to experience in Bali is executed accordingly and the peace, the absolute peace that one encounters at the Sunrise Villa is not something words can describe. I am so grateful to have visited there.

Who would have known the small area of Tejakula had so much charm. People stay towards the south of the island for the beaches. This leaves the north quaint, untouched, charming, and real. Our experiences were unforgettable. Villa Sunrise was relaxing with Made' making great breakfast meals and really taking care of us. Gaia Oasis provides amenities and the area has plenty to offer.
Close, but not intrusively so, is the Gaia-Oasis, a european education center and retreat, They serve buffet lunch and dinner daily, and snacks are available between meals. It is also possible to arrange for fishing, dolphin watching, or snorkeling expeditions and touring through them, There is a diving center ten minutes up the road, and you are only 1+ hours from Kintimani (the Mother temple), Lovina, Singaraja, Lake Batur, Mount Agung (a still active volcano)and Ubud (the artistic heart of Bali)
