If you love beaches, this is an alternative.. We searched and we found this nice hotel right by the beach in the north sea line of Java. Not too big, but simple and nice. The room is just enough, swimming pool is just in front of your room. We can also enjoying our coffee while waiting for the sun set.

Room Tip: Its only a 2 stories hotel and all room is having a good view and access.

I lived 8 years in Asia. I know cheap guesthouses in Thailand, Laos and Cambodia.
This "Hotel" is more a gusthouse with a Flat-Tv in the room. The construction is new but real ugly. The beach is in front of the hotel but full of rubbish with brown water - you can not bath.
In the internet it looks much more better than in reality.
The seved food is only Nasi Goreng or Bami Goreng in different styles - see pic.
No way to communicate with the stuff - not word of English at all.
Location is in the "desert". No transport - no shop - nothing
I would avoid this "Hotel".

Stayed here during our furniture hunting trip. The hotel is nice and very well kept. Owner is super friendly and even offered to babysit the little one.

This is definitely our place to stay the next time we come over to Jepara.

Even if the residence need a bit of maintenance, the place is quite good and it's a good ratio quality / price. The suite is wide, the bed is good, the bathroom is simple. The swimming pool is nice, close to the sea. The breakfast is really average, may be one of the worst I had in Indonesia, where I live now for 3 years (coffee is nescafe, juice is coming from the bottle...). There was no bed available for our baby. Anyway, weather was fine, sunsets were dramatic, we enjoyed our week end there.

The Good:
Comfortable and very clean rooms; I stayed in the standard room.
A couple of other places to eat are within walking distance. Jepara Marine restaurant is excellent and CV Joglo Putu Inten resort is very good.
Very nice pool and and poolside seating. There's a private area on the beach that was kept clean with outdoor beanbags to sit on. It was pretty comfortable and a nice place to sit and watch the sunsets.
Security seemed to be very good.
The staff were very helpful.

The Bad:
Food was okay, but the coffee was horrible. I need some good coffee in the morning.
The beach is a dump. It wouldn't take much to pay someone to clean it every day and maybe some netting for a swim area in the ocean as the area in front of the hotel isn't very big.
If the place is full it can be a bit crowded in the morning during breakfast.
The parking area was tiny and a bit difficult to maneuver in.

Overall:
I checked out several other places in the area and this looked like one of the better options with the way the pool area was designed. the food was a bit lacking, but like I mentioned there are two other options within walking distance to mix things up a bit. I would definitely stay there again and explore the area a bit more.

We stayed 3 nights at the Ocean Residence and the overall experience has been a very positive one. The whole vibe of the place is very Miami beachfront villa style with an ultra nice swimming pool. The setting is enhanced with great lounge music playing at the pool and the public area which makes it an excellent place to chill while watching the sun go down. The rooms are cozy and feature for indonesian standard very reasonable sound proofing. The location of the residence is quite far from the nearest mosque, so there are no disturbances early in the morning ( unlike many places in Indonesia ). I warmly recommend it.

Room Tip: The number 5 was very quiet. Please note that this is coming from an ultra light sleeper!
