Enjoy the privacy of your own space or mix with interesting people, make new Balinese and international friends. Set up as an indoor/outdoor experience, you live close to nature and will have daily visits from ducks, frogs and geckos. Please appreciate the natural setting of the house. Chai is a two storey two bedroom house with use of a beautiful shared pool. It has one bedroom upstairs with great views of the pool/rice fields and one bedroom downstairs in a separate pavilion. It has two Balinese style open air bathrooms, a large kitchen, spacious seating areas and can accommodate up to 4 adults and 2 children (sofa beds). A baby cot is also available upon request. During your stay, you will experience a serenity that cannot be found in central Ubud. There is a beautiful swimming pool (with children's pool area) beside the rice fields. This is shared with the other T houses and there is always a quiet time for a relaxing swim. Daily maid service, free wifi (good connection) and basic breakfast is included in your stay. As maids have to juggle a few houses, they might not be that punctual. The house offers you an experience to stay in an environmentally friendly and ecologically sustainable compound, which is a part of Balinese village life. The house is for people who love to meet other people, kids usually make new friends when they stay here. Chai House is a 5 to 10 minute drive from Ubud centre and 10 minutes from the Monkey Forest. It is located just outside of the picturesque town of Ubud, famous for its food, views and cultural attractions, including striking waterfalls and temples. The setting offers true tranquility as it is set away from the town with a few restaurants close by. The staff are available to make you an evening meal upon request using fresh local ingredients. We have a fantastic local driver who will bring you from/to the airport (or other location) at very reasonable rates. He is highly recommended, with good English speaking and an exceptional knowledge of Bali; he can create a unique experience of the island for you. Guest feedback: 'Honestly, don't waste your time thinking you want to take yourself everywhere and find it on your own: you'll never find it. He will save you loads of time and stress and is a genuine great guy.' Interaction with Guests: Resort staff are great at solving practical problems, they live locally (they are the T House's neighbours) so there is always someone around. At night the watchmen are there to provide security and assistance. The Neighborhood: Green/nature setting. Local village life in the day time and peaceful in the night time. Getting Around: The T House staff can assist with arranging transport including: Motorbike rental Bicycle rental (one bicycle free for guest use) Driver/taxi service into Ubud Excursions and tours around the island. They can also arrange other services such as massage, laundry and freshly prepared local food (please order one day in advance). Other Things to Note: Rates include all taxes/service charge, breakfast, wifi and daily maid service. Airport pick up is additional charge.More

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
