I have a wonderful stay with Rucina' family. They are friendly and very helpful. Rucina arranged the airport pick up and one day tour for me. I am very appreciate it. The location is a little bit far from the center but quiet and I love their dogs a lot!

Nice private room away from the hustle at downtown Ubud, but still close enough to restaurants, etc. The hosts are very kind and helped me to plan and organize my time in Ubud, e.g. get a guide for a day trip, which shows to see, hire a bicycle to get around, etc. A special place to stay! I hope to come back one day.

A great place to stay for a longer time! Separate entrance, a lot of privacy, an experience of local life in Ubud outside the tourist circuit but easy to get there when you feel like it. Rucina is an amazing host, has so much knowledge about culture and traditions and generously gives recommemdations for all sorts of events.

Jero Kapal is a great place for the solo traveler who wants to be immersed in Balinese culture and stay in a real Balinese home. Rucina is a charming and very hospitable host who has lived here for 30 years and is a tremendous source of knowledge about all aspects of life and culture in Bali. She is also a professional guide and an authority on dance and music and can offer many useful ideas to help plan your stay. Gung Ti, who is a fabulous cook, and Ketut contribute to the friendly atmosphere. The accommodations are simple, but bright, spacious, clean, and comfortable. The location offers easy access to the main streets and center of Ubud, and Rucina’s recommendations for shops and restaurants were extremely helpful. The view over the rice fields and temple is beautiful and relaxing. Jero Kapal felt like home, and I would be happy to return there for a longer stay.

The room in Jero Kapal is very luminuous and the view is nice. Only the traffic jam and the noise of the street were too much. But I was there in the busiest month (aug) I guess. Gung-ti and the dogs were so lovely and the always made me feel welcome when I arrived. I didn't see Rucina often as she was busy but she asked if everything was good or if I needed anything.

I stayed with Rucina for almost three weeks. The evening when I arrived I was positively surprised by the beautiful Balinese style house and my spacious room! I loved it from the first minute. Rucina is extremely cheerful and outgoing and always assisted me with anything, although unfortunately we didn't meet often. The room was cleaned before I asked for it. It's not too far from Ubud center, I walked there everyday. I definitely recommend it and would always come back!!

I stayed with Rucina for five weeks while I completed a yoga teacher training at Yoga Barn. Given my early starts and late finishes, it was fantastic to be able to come and go via my own entrance and not feel I was disturbing the main house. The space is lovely and bright with a pleasant bathroom and private balcony, which was lovely for relaxing after a hard day of yoga! Having a small fridge, kettle and water purifier in the room really made a difference for a long stay. I enjoyed my walk each morning through the quieter neighbourhoods of Ubud (it's about ten minutes' walk to Yoga Barn via the "back" way) and loved getting a glimpse of the local life. In the other direction it's just a short walk to the main streets of Ubud and there are plenty of great restaurants nearby - Rucina will give you an extensive list of recommendations! There are also spas, resorts with swimming pools available to the public and ARMA Art Museum in walking distance. I didn't see Rucina much due to my long hours but when I did, she was warm and welcoming and very knowledgable about the local area -I would have loved to be able to get to know her better. She was always available via text for any queries and her staff at home were very friendly and helpful if I needed anything - and housekeeper Gung Ti makes a delicious breakfast! Jero Kapal definitely felt like home and is perfect for a solo traveller on a long or short-term stay.
