"I've been coming to Bali since 1989 and this is the nicest place I've stayed. It's so clearly a labor of love by Wendy and Walker that there is an instant comfort factor; I felt good the whole time and found it hard to rise from the day bed on the terrace of Longhouse: fully exposed to greenery, yet totally private. Romantic does not begin to describe it. The staff were unfailingly friendly, the meals excellent, the pool perfect, the design and styling a picture of rustic elegance. In short, my kinda place. Wendy and Walker, see you next year." - Martin Fletcher, Mexico 

Our stay in Bali with you, Walker, and your lovely daughter, Kyan was very special. The three of you and your staff made a wonderful memory for us that will live on in our thoughts for the rest of our lives. The Stone House was one of the most memorable places we have ever visited and our accommodations were right out of House and Garden Magazine -- only better! Not only was staying at the Stone house experiencing a slice of paradise but also you and your staff made sure we had a true Balinese experience — rustic, but chic and quite luxurious. We can’t thank you enough! - Barry & Judy Kramer, Fairfield, CT USA

We spent a heavenly two weeks at Stone House. Wendy and Walker have created a magical oasis combining exquisite design,  a property that supports both privacy and community, a charming and gracious staff and loads of personal attention. We arrived as guests, departed as friends and can't wait to return. - Janet Frohmeyer, Seattle, WA USA 

Little did we know as we stepped though the heavy wooden doors that we were entering a heavenly paradise. As we passed scattered flower petals along the pathway into our room, we knew that we had entered something special, as if beckoning us onward to some treasure. Waking up as if still in a dream, the sunlight came through the windows to beckon us to our private deck. The morning light exposed rice paddies as our nearest neighbors. As we poured our first days tea, we watched as the local farmers as they went about their daily routine. Feeling like a British explorer visiting some remote area, we were transported to something out of the 19th century. Not wanting to break the spell of the moment, we explored our room to find even the books seemed to be selected for some purpose to allow us to escape our modern world. The open-air kitchen and dining area is designed for wonderful meals and wonderful conversations of worldly topics. My wife and I have travelled around the world and our stay at Stone House, was unlike any we have ever stayed at and our only regret is we had to leave. -George Kincaid, Minneapolis, MN 

Our time at Stone House was one of the most magical ever! It is a secret spot full of delight and magic. The rooms are a visual delight with mornings spent gazing into the rice fields. This combined with the luxury of the rooms, the gorgeous, boho-chic design and attention to detail, make this place a very unique experience..one I can not compare to any where else! - Deepika Mehta, Mumbai, India 

This is one of my favourite places to stay in the world. It is a sanctuary set amongst the rice fields that makes you feel like you are a part of the magic of Bali. It is a place where you feel like you are at home. The staff are incredibly friendly and the rooms are second to none.  - Mark Robberds, Sydney, Australia 

 
 

We were both deeply touch and impressed by how we felt at Stone House. We could feel the love, care and attention that was put into the place, giving it life. We were enriched and inspired. It mirrored and nourished our souls. How can we take-in in a day what you put-into the place over years...Thank you for this experience. It is a priceless gift. I truly hope that those who follow us will have the eyes to see and the heart to feel the soulfulness of your home. - Adri Greenspan, USA 

My family and I occupied both the Stone House and Longhouse. Even though it was only for two days, we had the most beautiful time. The feeling on the property is one of tranquility and healing. The effortless style of Wendy and Walker is seen to be believed. I was really inspired by their textiles and objects d'art. We hope to get up there again to experience more in the region and will definitely stay at this beautiful place. - Sally McGregor, Yallingup, Western Australia 

I cannot recommend this property enough! It's not just a beautiful, magical breathtaking place to stay, it's as if you fell into the most loving, delicious family ever!! I stayed at Wendy and Walker’s property for two weeks and the experience was perfect. The rooms are heavenly, the staff are not 'staff', they are quite literally a family. The warmth everyone exudes is so inspiring, it added so much to our stay in Ubud. I truly cannot remember the last time I felt SO cared for. It was amazing. - Elissa Kravetz, Los Angeles, USA 

This extraordinary sanctuary is one of the most private, beautiful and considerately thought out places that I have ever seen in Bali. My short time there was magic and nourishing. Until I can return in person; I suggest it strongly to friends and families....this place "gets" what it means to "get away"! - Sue Brooks, Saratoga, WY 

Stone House is one of those ethereal places so well designed and beautifully furnished, you end up not just getting an excellent stay, but also a bit of an education by osmosis. - Finn-Olaf Jones, Los Angeles, CA
