The Bali Homes features over 12,000 sq feet of space overlooking thousands of acres of jungle and the beautiful South Pacific coast. Our three Bali Homes are imported from Indonesia and boast hand-carved architecture.

We recently finished constructing six Buckminster Fuller inspired Geodesic River Domes. These are among the best made in the world and partially powered by solar energy. They sit perched on the edge of our private river with the fresh, flowing water feeding up to the domes. Currently being constructed are six Jungle Bungalows that are built on the side of the mountain pathway to our very own private waterfall. Bali inspired, the interiors feature natural finishings and a gorgeous exposed shower and bath tub. 

This place is so special. Everything was perfect–from the architecture, to its perch on a mountain top, to the sounds of nature, to the comfy, comfy bed. My husband and I stayed four nights here with our six month old. We were looking for a place to relax and enjoy our little family, away from the hub of our daily lives and we found just that at Jake’s place. We are so grateful we landed here on our trip. Plus Jake is great! He’s so nice and friendly! -Diana
