Interaction with Guests
Our manager Kadek comes every day to clean the house and the pool.
He likes to advise and help you.
He is a very friendly guy!
He can make breakfast for you if you like, you pay only the food he will buy for you.
There are many art galleries, local warung, restaurants and spas within strolling distance and the centre of Ubud is a mere five minutes by taxi, 10 minutes by bicycle or a 20 minute walk.
You can rent bicycles & motorbikes or cars nearby.
I'll leave you my list of my favorite masseurs and drivers and secret spots and restaurants.
Penestanan now has its very own yoga studio, meditation center, two charming restaurants and a cafe so you don't even have to get on your motorbike.
We can organize a pick up from the airport with a driver of our confidence.The price is the same as a taxi: 300 000 rupiahs.
For all reservation for 1 week and more the pick up is free!
We have also drivers/tourist guides for your sightseeing tours.
Taxis are available 100m away from the villa.

Very comfortable and beautiful villa near the center of Ubud. Luxury garden and lovely swimming pool. Rooms are tastefully decorated and very clean. Special thanks to Kadek, a man who maintains everything in the villa.He helped us with everything:arrange transportation, restaurant and cooked us breakfast. I liked very much, we will definitely want to come back
Thanks Peter and Martine for sharing their amazing house with us. We had everything we needed and check in was very well organized. Peter was texting me in advance and helped to arrange pick up in the airport.
House has great pool, fastest wifi ever and there is also helper coming every day to do cleaning. He also cooked breakfast for us.
There is resort just opposite villa, spa nearby and small shop. Plenty of taxis and you can walk to Ubud market in 20 minutes.
Great location, terrific value. Would stay there again
Four of us stayed for 3 nights at Pondoc Catu Villa. We loved everything about it!! It only took 5mins by motorbike to get into Ubud town centre so it was nice and quiet at the villa. The pool was the perfect temperature and kept very clean. We loved relaxing under the gazebo. Both bedrooms were spacious, had comfy beds and air conditioners that worked well. The downstairs en-suite bathroom was beautiful.
Kadek the house manager looked after our every need. He made a nice breakfast for us every morning, organised motorbike hire and our transport to and from Lombok island.
I would recommend the villa to everyone and cannot wait to return in the future.
Pondo Cantu proved to be a wonderful experience. We loved to return after the hustle and bustle of life in ubud and the Balinese love of scooters. The house was well maintained by kadek and he cooked us lovely breakfasts. His crepes were devine and he kept us entertained about life in Bali. Our only comment to consider is in regard to airport pickups. The drivers need to keep signs up clearly so that they can be seen. After a long journey perception can be limited. This is a very minor issue as the stay was absolutely wonderful. Thanks Peter for letting us share your bit of paradise.
Nous avons trouvé une très belle maison avec tous les équipements prévus et en bon état de fonctionnement. Kadek était au petit soin pour nous ne sachant comment nous faire plaisir. Pour la Saint Valentin, il nous offert à chacune petit cadeau. Nous avons aussi découvert Loulou, la petite chatte de la maison, qui nous faisait la fête quand nous rentrions.
J'espère que nous pourrons y revenir l'année prochaine.
The villa is enclosed in a lovely walled garden and has ample indoor and outdoor space. The master bedroom is huge and its ensuite wonderful. The guest bedroom has a large breezy terrace with lots of lounging space. The pool pavilion is great for yoga or simply relaxing. The beds are firm and comfortable.
There is lots to see and do and the villa is far enough away from central Ubud to be tranquil. It's about a 2 minute walk to the top of the alleyway, where a group of taxi drivers hang out, waiting to take you wherever you want to go. Taxis cost 50,000 Rupiah from the top of the alleyway into Ubud. It's a 15 minute walk to the supermarket at Bintang and a 15 minute walk to downtown Ubud. The Cantika Jasmine Spa, a 3 minute walk from the villa, has lovely massages with beautiful natural oils made locally.
The best thing about the villa is the guy looking after it, Kadek. He cleans the whole house every day. He cooked us breakfast most mornings, went and got fruit for us, organised trips, took us on a trip himself and was generally all-around fantastic! Lulu the cat is wonderful too, very affectionate. A very affordable and relaxing introduction to Bali for us.
There was building work during our stay at the property directly opposite but obviously that won't be the case indefinitely. The Wi-Fi is very weak and unstable, basically a 3G Wi-Fi stick. If you need a strong connection, downloading, uploading etc, it won't be up to the job. There are many cafes in Ubud with okay Wi-Fi.
We would recommend Warung Mendez, Warung Made's and Yellow Flower cafe in Penestanan, and Taco Casa in Ubud.
The villa is divine. Lovely huge clean rooms with beautiful beds. Downstairs bathroom is perfect with a huge bath. Gardens are wonderful too, pool is great! The house manager, Kadek is incredibly helpful.
Only slight downside wifi either didn't work or was very slow. We told Kadek, he topped up the credit, but still it was sometimes impossible to connect. It wasn't a huge issue for us, it gave us more time to play with Lulu the very affectionate cat. Thank you so much for a beautiful holiday, we will definitely return.
