As the title of my review suggests there was in unfortunate start to our stay at Pondok Terra. They forgot to pick us up from the airport!!!!!!! I had their number and had no luck getting through so we took a chance on a local taxi driver to find it. Believe me it wasn't too easy either. Still they were extremely apologetic. It's hard to be too upset as they were extremely nice and pretty much everything else was good. That's why I only gave a 4 out of 5. The house was extremely attractive (diamond villa) and the staff were super helpful. It seems like its in an obscure spot but after a couple of days getting to know the area we quickly leant is was well located. Especially for numerous restaurants and art galleries.
The house was clean and the pool a lovely treat. My only other gripe would be that I did not find the bed comfortable or the bed linen very nice. (Towels either) Still this would not stop me from returning. Overall it was a good experience being in he middle of a kampung and I recommend it.
