Welcome to Podpadi. When we decided to build this, we made sure the surroundings complement the space where nature is respected & encompassed by productive rice-fields & charming local villages, PodPadi has an ideal secluded sanctuary for families, couples or small groups of peaceful ambience seekers. Most importantly, it had to be functional, secure, sustainable & comfortable. Simplicity is key in this development and it had to boost the local community and assist the people living in the area.

The space

My wife and I build this home in over the course of 1 year and we decided to call it Podpadi, because of its peaceful paddy field surroundings.

Upon entering, the walkway leads through a lounge bordered with greens. Featuring a swimming pool, sun deck, open living environment, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, fiber optic internet and air-conditioned bedrooms. Its a tastefully minimalist modern designed 3 bedroom private villa, built with a touch of classic-modern identity and an eclectic sense of taste. The peculiar yet effective space makes it a very interesting place for both work and leisure.

Guest access

Guest will have full access to the entire property, except for the storage room, which is beside the lounge area.

Interaction with guests

Mella who speaks a little english will be seeing you through check-in till check-out. Her english is not outstanding but she's definitely improving day by day just by interacting with guest.

She would be able to let you in on everything you need to know while traveling in Ubud and her surroundings, cultures and local slangs. If you like to have breakfast prepared, let her know a day advance, she'll be more than happy to prepare it for you for a small fee.

And there is Pak Nyoman, Mella's Dad who takes care of the gardening, pool and security during the day and wee hours of the nights to make sure the place is secured.

And lastly we have Mella's Mom ;) who takes care of the cleanliness of the rooms and surroundings of the villa.

Should you have issues communicating with them, I'm more than happy to assist but I´m very certain they will go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable.

This is one way we give back to our local community through creating job opportunities, teaching and social skill development.

Interaction with staff depend on guest request:

Daily cleaning service 10am or 2pm
Daily pool/garden in the mornings 8am / 10am or 4pm
Daily security every 4 to 5 hours within the villa compound

Other things to note

We're about 30 meters 2 minutes walk from the main street, located in the rice fields therefore not accessible by car but a motorcycle.

We're discoverable through Waze or Goog maps at Podpadi Design Spaces. The map location is just an indication to the main road leading to Podpadi.

Upon arrival, Mella and her family will assist you with your luggages.

We loved it here, it was absolutely beautiful. The rooms were stunning and big, i especially loved the bathrooms and the swimming pool. We had a good stay. Mella's family was really sweet although we havn't seen Mella except for two times when we arrived and once late at night. Her Mother was adorable tho. Overall we had a great stay here and the house is stunning.

My friends and I spent a few days here and from start to finish Merv and Kris were helpful, commutative and just generally fantastic. The space was wonderful for my group of friends, each room has an en suite with an open plan design. There's not a lot of storage but the rooms do have a hanging rail and a counter with storage underneath and a safety deposit box. WiFi was hit or miss but that's not a bad thing as we spent the evenings swimming in the nice sized pool. Kris (the villa manager and driver) really does all he can to look after you. Each day he drove us wherever we wanted but also suggested other places for us meaning every day was new and interesting. We really loved our stay, thanks to everyone who made it special.

This is a very good place to stay at, my family and I thoroughly enjoyed the break from busy kuta. One tip for visitors would be to take the transport offered by Mervin's driver Kris, there is no other way to get to the city (be it Uber or Grab) from the villa. We tried walking but it was an experience to forget. Will definitely recommend it to someone wanted to get away from a city and just relax, the kitchen amenities also make it self-sufficient if you want it to cook.

Response from Mervin:
We're glad you enjoyed your stay and we would like to apologize about the pool. There was some issue with our water filtration that needed to be rectified. We hope to see you again soon. Thanks

A husband and father of 1 who loves to travel, enjoys good food and cycling. Traveling with a family now means looking for a holiday home away from home. As a host, I hope to create a comfortable and enjoyable stay experience that will bring back good memories for years to come.
