We loved our 4 nights stay in the newest villa 'bronze' and we like to go back. The villa's are situated next to a mosque (silver the closest) and despite of the Ramadan (praying in the middle of the night and early in the morning) it did not bother us very much and we found it charming: you are in Indonesia! However earplugs are very helpfull. The private pool is big enough and the villa very spacious. The mattress on the bed and sheets felt perfect so we slept very good. Concrete bed however needs some skills ;-)! Price-Quality of the villa is good! Breakfast is o.k however is plain and very simple presented. Cleanliness also fine but not spotless. In just 5 minutes walk you find some modern restaurants (f.e. kmeal with also payable French/Australian wines) and 10 minutes walk you are in Jalan Prawirotaman with a lot of modern restaurants (Easy going serves nice payable asian dishes and Hani's asian and international; ViaVia we did not try because looked very 'see and be seen'), tour offices and laundry service. Also a lot of food stalls with typical Indonesian food. The reason we do not give 4 stars is:
* we had to wait a very long time at the airport for our pick-up
* the villa bronze was new but not complete established f.e. no towel rack and minimal furnishing/inventory and felt not cosy yet (however we saw villa silver and looked complete and perfect)
* no mattresses in the sun beds and this was not comfortable (the owner promised us by e-mail next time we visit they have matresses)
* staff was very nice (we loved Roman) but did not speak English very well and were not really pro-active
* little square/entrance of the villa's and staff-area looked chaotic
After our visit I had e-mail contact with the owner and she agreed with me and told me to improve on these points (she was not around for some months). I believe she will and thats why I recommend these villa's!
and we definitely will return when we are in Yogya!

Room Tip: When you are a "light" sleeper is the silver villa (in time of Ramadan) not the best choice.

We stayed in the diamond villa. A very nice en complete villa, with two bedrooms, a giant bathroom (two showers), and a fully equiped kitchen. Outside there is a nice veranda and terrace and your very own swimming pool. The staff is most generous and helpfull. Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be arranged in the villa, but because of the location, you can very easily walk to nearby restaurants.
It is a marvelous little resort! One little detail: because of the mosque, which is at close distance from the villas, you will hear the prayers. We stayed in Yogjakarta during ramadhan, so also at 03.00 hrs you will here the morning prayers, but as already said in other reviews, you get used to it!

We stayed in the Gold Villa at this small resort. This villa is fully equiped and has 2 bedrooms which can easily house 4 persons. When you arrive at Pondok Terra you think you are in the wrong place. The villas are right in the middle of the Kampung and you think you are far away from the centre. But if you then walk for 5 minutes you find that you are actually right in the centre. This means that you can do anything you want by foot or by becak. That is a big advantage as you do not need taxis etc. You have your own swimming pool at the villa. The staff is very friendly and they can arrange breakfast, lunch or dinner for you. The villas are beatifull. The only disadvantage is that there is a mosque very close by so in the middle of the night you wake up because of the mosque, but after a while you get used to this.

Most of the good reviews covered the good points. Will elaborate on what could be better and personal likes.

Likes:
Very near to many cafés/bistros. 5mins walk to K meal (steaks, pizzeria, breakfast), Warung Che Sule (fantastic bbq fish/chic along jln parangtritis entrance)
Peaceful, cosy and friendly village
Comes with a water dispenser

Could be better:
Lighting, some parts could use more lights/white lights. Bathroom shower stall is dark if you close the curtains(hence attracts mozzies), Patio lighting sparse and only near pool.
Cleanliness: generally clean but as the villa caters to international guests, staff needs to remember that generally Europeans/Americans wear footwear in house and mop the floor before next guest checks in. Fridge could do with a cleaning too.

Would I stay again?
Yes and will request for more cleaning (stayed 2 nights so didn't bother)

Room Tip: bronze room minimal greenery less mosquitoes Silver villa closest to mosque but morning prayers not really loud Silver villa only one with wooden patio, others are tiled Diamond and bronze Vilas are newest

Thanks a lot for your review. Our Bronze villa is just newly build and any suggestions for improvement are very much welcome. Based on your suggestions, we have now checked and improved the lightning of the villa's and also brightened the lightning of the patio/swimming pool area. All villa's are always mopped before new guests arrive! Our personnel is always happy to do extra cleaning if you feel it is necessary, they are available 24 hours for any help you may need. Thanks and looking forward to your next stay:)

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.

Thanks a lot for your review. We really appreciate that you found villa Diamond extremely attractive and our staff super helpful and at least considered to give us 5 stars for your review. We always look for opportunities to further improve our service and have immediately checked all mattresses of all 4 villa's and replaced those which may not offer the best sleeping comfort. Furthermore, we have added a couple of bed linen sets and have added some new pillows to improve the attractiveness of the beds. Furthermore, Yogyakarta airport is getting more and more crowded and fortunately we can locate 99% of our guests for the free pick-up service at the airport. In your case unfortunately it didn't work out as planned (I was actually on the same flight), again my sincere apologies and we hope you have enjoyed your free breakfast we have offered you in return for this ''one big slip'' :)
