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.
I stayed at this property for two weeks. My stay was a key part of a wonderful experience in Ubud
The villa is located in a quiet, fascinating neighbourhood. You must walk to it, but the walk takes only a few minutes and enhances the stay. The villa itself is beautifully designed and appointed. It has a lovely garden and pool. Everything is maintained to the highest standard.
Barbara and Henry live nearby and are the perfect hosts- very kind and attentive but not hovering. They are very knowledgeable about the restaurants and sites in the area and happy to share their knowledge. I was worried I might be bored staying in Ubud for so long but in the end I left before I had seen and done everything I wanted.
Barbara and Henry provided a lovely housekeeper who came each morning to cook a terrific breakfast and clean. They also recommended a driver who proved to be a tremendous resource. There are many varied and excellent restaurants within walking distance.
It would hard to imagine a better place to stay for a solo traveller, a couple or a couple with a child under twelve.
I was the first guest to stay at Gardenia Gardens and it did not disappoint.
Privacy and quiet, with eveything I needed for my month stay.
The pool was regularly maintained and the lighting at night just beautiful.
Fully equipped kitchen and the wi-fi was constant and reliable.
From beautiful furnishings to sumptuous bedlinens. I wont bother to book anywhere else but here in future. Thankyou Barb and Henry for once again providing a villa of 5 stars.
