Sanda House

Volunteers will find Sanda House to be a welcome reprieve from the hustle of tourist-packed Ubud. A short motorbike drive north from Munduk, or a half hour walk through mountain trails to the center of town, Sanda overlooks serene rice paddies and, further away,  hills forested with lush green jungle.

Though simple, the three-bedroom Sanda House has a kitchen, complete with a refrigerator and range, and a bathroom with a shower. Hot and cold water, as well as wifi, are available. The spacious living area overlooks rice paddies and stately palm trees. Behind the kitchen, a stone-lined path guides you past the tranquil fish pond to the bale, an elevated gazebo where you have an even better view of the gorgeous countryside and the mountains beyond.

Despite its relative remoteness, Sanda House has many friendly neighbors, and is a short walk away from food stands that sell water, eggs, fruits and vegetables, and other staples. A fifteen-minute walk away you will find the main road, where you can find warungs with delicious, inexpensive local food, places to do laundry, and shops. Located near other villages like Gesing and Kuta Piyuh, Sanda is the perfect blend of rural peace and community.
