“Perfect Bali escape”
Reviewed 15 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My girlfriend and I loved this place. Ubud, Bali is a great little town to explore and this house was perfect for us. It was great having a pool to cool off in, a kitchen to prepare some meals, and an outdoor shower to soak in.

Located just outside, a 15 minute walk to, downtown Ubud.

“Relaxing secret hide away”
Reviewed 14 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed at Pondok Catu for one week from 6 - 13 May. It is a secret little hide away in Penestanan just outside Ubud. Where Ubud has become very touristic with major traffic congestion, Penestanan still has the feel of a village.

Pondok Catu makes you feel at home. It's an ideal place to come home to after exploring Ubud and the region around it. The peaceful garden and good sized swimming pool makes you feel relaxed as soon as you enter the property.

The facilties and amenities are good and satisfactory. We recommend to hire a motorbike to travel to Ubud. In the neighbourhood of the villa there are plenty of local warungs and Alchemy is an ideal place for healthy juices and salads.

Unfortunately there are many villas being build around Pondok Catu and Penestanan in general. We hope that the touristic development similar to Ubud will still take many years from now.

We sincerely enjoyed our stay at Pondok Catu and would certainly recommend it if you are looking for a comfortable place to come home to after being out and about...!

“What amazing value for money!”

After looking at over-priced villas & costly hotels I found this gem on Air bnb.
It's 100m down a pretty lane in the rice paddies just outside Ubud.
The housekeepers carried our suitcases all the way to the room.
Beautiful walks all round, a great cafe opposite, bakery nearby for croissants & cake in the morning, a supermarket 3 minutes away - the location is just great.
The villa is owned by a gentleman named Peter who was really helpful in arranging everything, as were the housekeeping boys.
The pool is huge, with a gazebo you can swim under if the sun is too hot; all this in a lush, green tropical garden surrounded with giant heliconia & palms.
2 separate living areas meant privacy for both parties when needed.
The bedrooms were large & comfortable, the bathrooms clean & the downstairs open bathroom really lovely. Loads of dvd's to watch, wifi & many basic supplies already in the kitchen.
We really enjoyed our stay. Definitely didn't want to leave. And will certainly be staying there again.
Many thanks to the owners & staff.

Beautiful location, walking distance to central Ubud. Grounds are gorgeous, pool, 2 levels, just a fantastic place located down a narrow path surrounded by rice fields.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 28 March 2013 for a stay in July 2012

I stayed at Pondok Catu for one month and it became my home away from home. It is a large house divided in two separate apartments with a shared downstairs kitchen, pool and garden area. The house is totally secure with both apartments lockable and the surrounding fence/gate lockable too. The safe must be shared however. It is suitable for 2 independent travellers, or 2 families with their own access to each apartment.
Putu and his brother Kadek attend to the welcome, cleaning and maintenance of the place. They are gorgeous, polite boys who clean and look after the place. On many occasions I found the stairs decorated with frangipannies as a surprise when I came home. So sweet. They make every effort to be helpful. Putu's English is very good and Kadek is learning.
The house is situated in a close knit cluster of other villas with many more being built in rapid succession. The building noise was not a concern to me because I was out during the day.
Walking into Ubud is possible-I did it each day, just need a torch as there are no footpaths in places. There is now a small sophisticated warung right near the front gate and 3 minutes away is The Round Bar which was a frequent haunt of mine. Please say hello to the boys there from Patricia. I loved Pondok Catu, the garden, the pool, the four poster bed, Lulu the cat, her little friends.....enjoy:)
