Hidden gem in the most beautiful setting
We stayed at rumah cayah villa and annex for 5 nights and definitely couldve stayed longer! The house had so much space and we loved the open design - be prepared to make friends with the local wildlife! The villa had everything you needed and the staff were wonderful especially Juli the property manager who helped arrange numerous trips and transport to our next destination etc. The villa is only a walk away or a very cheap taxi from ubud town however there are also many lovely places to eat nearby and the proximity to the supermarket was ideal for our group!
Thank you for a stay we will never forget!
Romantic and traditional Indonesian villa
Great villa with lots of privacy and very nice staff. Unfortunately we had a lot of rain during our stay so, because of the open construction of the villa, it became very humid in the villa including the bed linen. Location is great close to a lot of small “warungs” and you can find a coffee lovers café 5 minutes walking from the villa at the main road. Because of the location close to the jungle the view is stunning. All in all it was a great stay (apart from the rain..)
A Lovely Stay outside Ubud
We loved our Stay at Rumah Cahaya in April 2018.
Staying in this Villa is like being one with nature. I was not aware before coming that the villa is completely open air, we definitely recommend a bath under the stars- it is magical. During the evenings it cooled down a bit but was still quite warm. The owner does a great job of keeping the mosquitos away but we were startled a few times by very large (by western standards) bees buzzing around the villa. They did not seem aggressive, but took some getting used to. Otherwise the live flora throughout really made for quite a special experience.
The pool area is absolutely beautiful and a dream to relax by. A feeling of seclusion is achieved. The setting of the villa is between the jungle and rice paddies, again very wonderful! Note there is no road to the villa and it is best to meet in the Market parking lot to find your way there. Having the Bintang Market nearby was also a major plus, you could find everything you might need there. We also rented a scooter while staying in Ubud and Juli the property manager conveniently had it dropped off for us at a great rate, we were so appreciative. Juli also graciously drove us to the airport very late at night which was great. He is one of the Villa's best assets.
There are information books in the villa that we also found quite helpful when just arriving and definitely recommend reading through.
Our only concern while staying in the villa is that we found cameras not only outside, but also inside (they appeared to only be pointing at the doors). We found this somewhat unsettling and a bit invasive. One should also note that the owner lives just beyond the pool with a door adjoining the properties. We didn't feel as though we had total and complete privacy.
Otherwise, we would absolutely consider staying again and will be recommending this villa to family and friends alike.
We’re always delighted by good reviews, but it is troubling to learn of any dissatisfaction. We provide a local phone for the purpose of answering any question, as we pride ourselves on providing the absolute best possible experience.
Comments that might be considered negative may give pause to others, so we’ll clarify a few points:
PRIVACY: The villa was built for the owner’s eventual retirement, and he presently occupies it only several weeks during the winter. Rental opportunities during this low season are infrequent, so when opportunity arises, to keep our our wonderful staff employed, he occasionally either moves into the adjacent bungalow (VRBO #702772) or travels.
Make no mistake. The villa and its adjacent annex are COMPLETELY PRIVATE! True a`connecting gate in the wall separates the two, but unless a large party rents both accommodations, the gate is kept locked accept when accessed by the housekeeper..
CAMERAS: When the villa was built, it was felt that its remote location and infrequent occupation neecessitated a security system and surveillance cameras. Eight cameras cover exterior doors and gates but NO interior living spaces. They are ONLY OPERATIONAL WHEN THE VILLA IS UNOCCUPIED. Privacy is one of our best assets and among are greatest concerns.
OPEN AIR: Lastly, it is a bit of a misnomer to refer to the villa as “open-air”. The bathrooms are delightfully indoor-outdoor, but are of course provided with doors. The 15-foot wide “view” walls, one from the living room to the front veranda and the other from the second-floor bedroom to the deck, are equipped with full-length folding glass doors and can be left open to the view and fresh air or completely closed .
The only true “open-air” portion of the house is the triangular atrium at the top of the indoor waterfall, which is located in the far north-east corner of the building.
Evidently what was meant by the reference to “open air” was the absence of air conditioning. We decided when building the house that its location high above the river valley and it’s high (26-feet in the bedroom) ceilings would provide adequate relief from the heat and humidity; we also felt that going in and out of air-conditioned spaces is not particularly good for our health.
We don’t miss air conditioning a bit.
In short the villa is an extraordinary gem even among the many wonderful offerings in Bali and we will do everything possible to provide the best in care and comfort to all who visit it.
Everything written about this property is spot on..the house is just gorgeous, the location is great - a perfect mix of town proximity and tucked away jungle feel, and the staff is so nice and accommodating! Maya makes an excellent breakfast and keeps the house spotless. I would definitely recommend hanging out and going around with Juli for the day. He's awesome and we were super grateful for his hospitality! Thanks Bruce!
Also, definitely check out Yellow Flower Cafe! A quick, nice path walk for some fantastic food!
Beautiful, peaceful villa with warm, wonderful staff
My wife and I stayed here briefly as part of our Indonesian honeymoon. We absolutely loved the villa. It was quiet, set apart from the busy and generally too-commercial Ubud. We woke to birds singing and went to sleep with just the stars. The villa was immaculate, and we enjoyed the pool, and outdoor shower and bath. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well each night. The house is filled with ornately carved doors, stone statues, carefully placed lighting, and an indoor waterfall. It, like Bali itself, marries art and function. But what made this stay so special was the staff. Juli picked us up from the airport and drove us to the villa. After a brief scooter lift to the house, he introduced us to the gardener and security officer, Ketut. We always felt safe there. Maya made us wonderful breakfasts -- both traditional Indonesian and Western options are available. On our second day, we hired Juli to take us on a local tour. We saw the traditional Barong dance, visited artisan shops, and toured temples. He even stayed with us late to make sure we saw the famous rice terraces. The next day was a special Hindu celebration -- Galungan. It is a sacred day when devout Balinese visit temples, make offerings to ancestors, and visit families. All the villages were decorated with beautiful penjor -- tall bamboo poles covered with flowers and other offerings. We were deeply honored when Juli invited us to attend the local temple with him and his son. We first met his wife and children and enjoyed some Balinese coffee and jaja cakes. At the temple, Juli guided us through the ceremony. It was one of the most special and sacred parts of our trip. After leaving, we went to Nusa Dua for two nights to enjoy the beach before returning to winter in New England. Immediately we missed Rumah Cahaya and the people of Penestanan. Nusa Dua felt artificial and inauthentic. Next time we will stay at Rumah Cahaya and skip the touristy resort. We could not recommend Rumah Cahaya more strongly. It is perfect for a couple or small family, and ideal for those wishing to see the "real" Bali and avoid the more commercial centers.
A week in paradise
Due to my wife’s work, we travel quite extensively, and have rented many houses, apartments, etc. Rumah Cahaya is by far the most enchanting and intoxicating experience we have ever had. Nothing comes close. The design, the attention to detail, the craftsmanship. All truly remarkable. Words can't describe our excitement of being privileged guests this absolutely beautiful villa.
We loved everything about it - the private pool, the outdoor bathrooms and bathing outside, the animal noises (especially in the mornings and evenings), and of course Bruce the owner who answered all our questions and the staff.
Juli, Maya, Bapak are all wonderful. So kind and so helpful. Juli (house manager) was an excellent driver and we encourage anyone staying at the villa to partake of his services and do a daytrip with him. Maya (housekeeper) made excellent breakfasts and kept the villa clean and comfortable. Bapak (the grounds supervisor/gardener), though speaking very little English, was a delight. We very much enjoyed his visits. We also loved his dogs and my wife even got a little lick on my hand from the younger one! Of course it may have been because she was crouched down on the ground, had just given him a hot dog and held out my hand that had touched the hot dog.
The villa is furnished with everything one could think of or need. We keep saying to each other, “Bruce thinks of everything!” The kitchen was terrific for those nights in. And it was easy to stock up as the Bintang supermarket was just a 5 minute walk out back through the rice fields. The big screen TV comes with a DVD player and Bruce has acquired a quite extensive DVD collection.
Though only about a 20 minute walk into Ubud proper, we only visited once. Why? We never wanted to leave the villa. Every minute away felt a moment missed in paradise. Our stay of 8 days seemed far too short. We left feeling rested and reinvigorated. This is a remarkable and romantic place in paradise and we will definitely be back.
Thank you for all your help and welcoming us into your extended family. We are eternally grateful.
