This intimate home grew around an antique rice barn. The inside & outside of the house are seamlessly connected. It's located in the hills above Singaraja, attached to rice fields. Down the sea, behind the mountains. A beautiful gorge with waterfalls is on walking distance.


I am a sculpting artist what you can recognize in the way this house is built. It grew organically around an 100 years old wooden rice barn.
Interior and exterior blend seamlessly together. The living room comprises an open kitchen.
The wooden ricebarn is lifted up by pillars and has access by a staircase. This is the main bedroom. One level lover is an extra floor to sleep. Adults can not stand straight up, but the Queen mattresss offers space for 2 persons. Children love it!
The roof covered semi-open bathroom is a separate building in which you find a hot and cold water shower, sink and a toilet.
If you look for more beds or prefer a more spacious bedroom, then there is a separate house 50m. uphill in the street (rumah tamu - see the picture).
It belongs to Pondok Apsari and has 2 bedrooms and a bathroom with hot water. It is only rented out as extra space for guests of Pondok Apsari who may use all the services of Pondok Apsari. This requires an additional fee.

Доступно гостям

The property is 2.000 m2 and all is at your disposal. A part of it we still use as an rice field.
There is also a roof covered studio and parking place, a swimmingpool and an Balinese resting place in the garden/balé.

Общение с гостями

We try to tune on the wishes and requirements of the guests. The English speaking staff takes care of household services cleaning, garden and pool
On request they can arrange daily breakfast, other meals and other services like driving the car.
Also lunch and diner (even gluten free) can be arrange, but must be ordered in advance.
I come from the Netherlands, from a family of 9 children. I studied as a social worker but later art switched to become an artist and studied at the famous Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. I love combining all kinds of materials ((URL HIDDEN)
I came to Bali for the first time in 2008 and on my first visit I fell in love with the place which was still an empty ricefield. Together with my then husband I started to build up the place in stages. Unfortunately my husband got ill and died a year later, so he never saw the house finished. I finished it in its present state in 2013. You can say the house and swimming pool are the biggest pieces of art I have created so far.
I am passionate about Bali and I want to please as much people as possible to experience this real authentic part of Bali and being so close to the overwhelming nature.
This happened after I met a new love, Jack, with whom I live together since 2015.

If wanted, we can advice you what to do in the neighbourhood. We also offer guided tours and wonderful hikes, like wonderful waterfall nearby. Or picturesque sights are a short scooter ride away
Also art workshops like 'cutting your own statue out of a mix of volcanic sand and cement'. (It's a traditional method that locals uses for the statues in their temples)

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour. Ce que nous recherchions, le calme, la nature. Un grand merci à Ji pour sa gentillesse et sa disponibilité. Le lieu peut paraître éloigné des endroits touristiques mais pour ceux qui veulent vivre avec l'habitant , nous le recommandons.

Pondok Apsari was the quiet and scenic getaway we were looking for after our time in Canggu and Ubud. We're so glad we made it up south and experienced a different perspective of Bali. Gi and staff were incredibly welcoming and his breakfast crepes and smoothies were a delight! We were able to hire a scooter through Gi to explore nearby Singaraja and Lovina and explored the nearby waterfalls with Gi's brother which was a highlight of the trip. There is also a nearby restaurant, Shanti which is a couple of minutes up the road via scooter which we enjoyed for dinner otherwide GI can provide food upon request. As already described on previous reviews visitors to Pondok Apsari need to embrace the 'wilderness' feel to this place in order to enjoy its uniqueness. If local critters and the sounds of wildlife bother you this place probably isn't up your alley however if you're up for a unique experience away from the luxuries of a resort you won't regret staying at Pondok Apsari.

Prachtige plek met mega mooi uitzicht! Het huis is sfeervol en het zwembad ligt aan de rijstenvelden, echt uniek! Heel prettig om samen met Karien en Ji een planning te maken voor het verblijf en de trekking naar de watervallen is echt een must do!

The house of Karien is phenomenal, better than the photos show, everything is very clean and is a very comfortable house with a lot of charm. The area is quiet and you are 20 minutes from the beach area with plenty of restaurants. Our stay was very good.

A fantastic place! We had a truly memorable time. A beautiful and unique house surrounded by padi fields and mountains. Lots of space around complemented by a lovely garden. Ji is an excellent assistant and is always there to help. If you're comfortable with animals, Jaga the dog and Beach the cat are such darlings! Would highly recommend a trek with Jaga! The nearest attractions (beach, spas, bars etc.) are quite a distance away, so scooter rental is necessary if you want to venture out on your own. No issues with cleanliness or basic amenities. A dip in the pool feels great after a day out in the hot sun. 101% recommended! Thank you so much Karien, Ji, Jaga and Beach. p.s. Karien/Ji, please give Jaga and Beach a nice big hug for us ;)

I am a Dutch sculptor and about 4 years ago I started to convert a virgin sawa (ricefield) in the hills above Singaraja into a tropical paradise. It is grown around a 100 years old “lumbung” (Balinese rice barn on columns). It got a seamlessly connection between inside and outside. The swimming pool follows the shape of the sawa’s and when you swim you have a magnificent view. I remarried recently and live now with my new husband,. Therefor I can share Pondok Apsari with guests to experience to live so close to nature. It is great to share that feeling of freedom.
