“Looking out from our bedroom there was nothing between us and the sea”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Jepara is beside the sea and the Bayfront Villa is almost in the sea. It's a large (I suspect once) private house now serving as a small, intimate hotel. The owner, Budi, is on site and is fascinating to talk to. The restaurant has one of the most varied and inexpensive menus I came across in my travels in Indonesia and the service is first class.
I was there in December ... in the middle of the rains .... and the views across the bay were lit up by lightning shards. It was amazing to sit in the bedroom and watch the storm lash the coastline. And when the sun returned later in the day we drove into town and wandered along the streets to see the most stunning examples of wood carving and furniture making in all of Indonesia. Definitely a place worth visiting.

Room Tip: The upstairs bedrooms give a wonderful feeling that there is nothing between you and the sea

We stayed one night for transit to the Karimunjawa Islands by ferry. We had a lovely stop-over, nice Seaview from the room. When we arrived, we saw contruction workers working, they made a lot off noise because they were working on the front. When we asked how long this would hold on, they to stop the construction until the next day! Very nice!
When we asked for a taxi to the port, they brought us for free...

Room Tip: Take Seaview room! Ist also nice to stay for dinner...

I was arrived too late for a sun set view which is to be the best scenery to be enjoyed on this villa. But the swimming pool with its clear water erased my driving tiredness. My kids really enjoy swimming there.
I can see the owner is really spent their attention for the service quality directly. Good indication for more occupancy.

Not only myself as a new visitor to Jepara, the villa is also quite new according to one of our friend that hometown in Jepara.
We booked 3 rooms (deluxe, suite and grand suite). Those are unique rooms/interior with nice names for each room.
Recommended villa though the villa management's needs to improve their restaurant for more speedy service.
