We loved staying in the rice barn. It has just about everything we could have hoped for, including a friendly and knowledgeable caretaker, Ji. It was the perfect place to escape from the crowded touristy spots of Bali and enjoy the traditional culture and community....More

We loved the place, the house and the warmth of the people. Karien was always availble and answering our questions immediately, although she was on her honeymoon in Australia. Ji, who just lives next to the comfy and romantic barnhouse, was very kind and helpful....More

About the neighbourhood
The property is 8 km. from the sea, from Singaraja 5 km. uphill.
They call that area the 'secret garden of Sambangan', full of tropical green and rice fields, with sea- and mountain view.
Many of the people that live in the little hamlet Banjar Anyar still live as they did 20 years ago.
Only the motorbike and cellphone make the difference.
