Reviewed July 18, 2014

What a treat it was to stumble upon this little oasis in the heart of Ubud. Sadly it is high season and I only stayed a night. Julie was such a gracious host and gave fantastic travel advice. No detail was spared from the blossoms upon the bed to a morning breakfast. The spicy omelette made by the charming Gede was the best I've had in Bali. I've stayed in 4 other airbnb in Bali and this was my best experience. As a solo female traveler my stay here made all the difference for my memories of Ubud.

We really appreciate your kind words, thank you. I told Gede that you referred to him as 'charming' - his smile reached from ear to ear! We hope to see you back here someday and for a longer stay next time!

Not a thing to complain about! Rumah Jepun truly is a:

-gem
-secret hideaway
-haven
-fantasy place

It is hard to believe the location is so close to the hustle and bustle of the main part of Ubud, yet so peaceful and full of such life in the garden and little river.

The hosts and staff in this property are very accommodating and caring; they will help you out with any questions and help you feel at home.

Will love to stay again next time I'm in Ubud!

Thanks Rumah Jepun

We had a great stay at Julie's place! I highly recommend it. Julie and her staff were really friendly and helpful. They helped us arrange transport to the north coast and gave us tips on where to eat and what to see. There was always someone on hand to help us with whatever we needed, and I really feel that everyone there went above and beyond what was expected of them. The place itself is also fantastic. It is really well located, it is only about a 1.5 minute walk from Monkey Forest Road, but it feels like you are staying outside the town as you only hear chirping birds, no traffic sounds at all! The building was built to fit in with Balinese style and is also part of the experience. Julie has made up a binder that includes a lot of information about Ubud, but with her personal recommendations, which really helped us planning our time there and was a nice touch. The included breakfast was also nice. It had papaya grown right there in the yard and after asking for a second coffee on the first day we were always asked if we wanted another (little detail, but shows that the staff cares) Overall a great experience, if you stay here you won't regret it!

It was such a delight staying at Julie's Rumah Jepun! It truly was a hidden gem. So nice to turn off the busy road and enter into a peaceful, beautiful garden, surrounded by papaya and banana trees, hibiscus and Jepun, and other lovely, colourful flowers. We loved it!! Julie was fantastic at suggesting things for us to do, and explaining about the Balinese culture, and we had delicious breakfasts made by Gede. Did I mention that we loved it? We'll highly encourage any of our friends to stay there, and if we're lucky enough to return to Ubud, we'll definitely stay there again.

Our time at Julie's was amazing! To put things into perspective, both my partner and I caught a terrible cold and flu as soon as we landed in Bali. Julie's home and Ubud was the perfect place to recover as well as enjoy the beauty and rich culture of Ubud, Bali. Julie and her staff, Gede and Ketut were extremely hospitable. They were caring and extremely genuine. They made sure we were hydrated with lots of ginger tea and got us a fan in lieu of the AC. Julie recommended an amazing traditional healer, Wayan Ketut who significantly helped us both. Julie's place is nestled in a lush garden with beautiful flowers. The room was a good size and the bed comfortable. It is in the perfect location (right in the centre yet away from the noise and traffic). Breakfast made by Gede was delicious!! We LOVED the banana pancakes - you must try it! Did I mention how lovely Gede is? Such amazing energy. Julie helped us plan our days and had amazing recommendations: Sedona Spa. White water rafting, great restaurants, various temples and fire dance show. Julie arranged our airport pickup with Wayan and we booked with him two other times for day trips - highly recommended! The thing I loved the most is that Julie has a genuine love for the Balinese culture and great respect for the people which made me feel good about my stay. Thank you so much Julie for taking good care of us, thank you for your kindness, hospitality, great recommendations, and your lovely energy. Highly recommended and will definitely stay again if ever I am in Bali.

A great way to land on your feet in Ubud. From the busy streets of Ubud, down the pathway and enter another world. Julie's home is a little piece of paradise. It is quiet and tranquil with easy access to all the activities Ubud has to offer. Julie and her staff are wonderful and nothing is too much trouble. Rumah Jepun is set in a beautiful garden, complete with all the mind settling noises of birds, trickling water, and the visually pleasing colours of tropical beauties. Julie is a wealth of local information which is great when planning outings. I loved my stay at Rumah Jepun and wouldn't hestitate to recommend to anyone visiting Ubud.

If you have stumbled across Julie's listing, consider your search over! It's hard to put into words how great this room is. 'Perfect' I suppose will have to suffice.

It's so secluded, it's a mini-adventure walking the path to the house from the main street. But when you're ready to go out, it's so close to dozens and dozens of restaurants, bars, and monkeys ready to literally climb up your shirt to grab a banana from your hand!

Julie was so friendly and accommodating, and the room was pristine. My wife and I had such an amazing time here.
