“Fantastic peaceful villa that is close to central Ubud”

We booked this villa for 1 week prior to our wedding. Susan was easy to deal with and promptly replied to my emails/questions. Ketut was also a very relaxed and helpful person with good English. The villa was tucked away off a road within walking distance to Ubuds main streets. It was extremely quiet for how central it was. Lots of gecko/bug sounds which was peaceful for us and no traffic noises. So many butterflies, squirrels and dragonflies! The house felt safe as it had high concrete walls and a locked doorway into the compound of several villas. It was very clean and aesthetically pleasing and was cleaned every morning we were there. The kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans/utensils/gas stove/large fridge and we cooked our meals most nights-as I didn't want to risk getting sick before my big day. There was a very large supermarket, that we often walked to, that had everything we needed including a device cable we forgot to bring and sim cards. The villa had free wifi, drinking water and many little extras around the place. We walked around Ubud everyday and saw many temples, Monkey forest, Dance productions, rice terraces, Ubud markets, Campunan Ridge walk, 3 museums, day spas (including eve spa which was literally meters away and about $20AUD for 1.5hr massage in clean facilities) and did yoga. We did not require a taxi or scooter but if we did it would have been very easy to do so - they are available everywhere! The only thing that could have made it better was air-conditioning, there are ceiling fans but we found it difficult to sleep in the heat. It is also a difficult place to be picked up from/visited as it is off the road - if you did many tours/pick ups from non local drivers you need to get them to call Ketut for directions or be good at giving them yourself (it is still mostly a benefit being tucked way). The salt water pool was in good condition and deep. The gardens were well maintained. Loved it!

“Soul food”
Reviewed 11 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This place is magic, and made up for the fact that Ubud has changed so much. Mind you, I am comparing it to 1972 and 1995. Unfortunately we could only stay six nights as it was booked out. The cottage was a quiet, calm retreat where we readily headed after days of indulging in massages and pedicures, eating at a list of restaurants a friend compiled… and of course Bali by Bike, the downhill cycle from Kintamani. (A friend who lived in Ubud said of all the touristy things to do, that is a must. We totally agree.)
We loved everything about Pondok Maya, from the view out over the pool from the bed and the delightful tropical garden. The kitchen worked really well and the bathroom was a treat, complete with bougainvillea! We felt very comfortable there and slept incredibly well.
The owner, Susan Powell, was great to deal with, even though she is Australian based, and her staff were lovely too.
The bonus was the walks out the back of the cottage, and discovering that Bubu restaurant, right out front, was the best! And we tried at least eight places that were recommended. You must try the ginger fizz and the black rice pudding… plus the long bean salad. (The Thai place two doors along does the best green pawpaw salad… )
And it’s only 15 minutes to walk to Ubud centre if you want the be caught up in the gridlock… or stay and the cottage and relax!
