Me and 5 of my friends stayed at Ailise's for 4 nights, the accommodation was perfect! Arrived to a very clean and well kept villa. I was able to end my trip on the best note! The home is clean, beautifully decorated, had a well stocked kitchen, TV and games for us to play late night! The location is a little off from the main road, but a short walk will take you to a really beautiful beach and gorgeous sunsets. Restaurants, bars, cafes, and markets are all within a 5-10 min walk. The host Ailise was very easy to communicate with and offered to help arrange airport transport as well as scooter rentals. Hope to stay here again soon!
Pondok Sari II is one of those rare places where the real thing matches, or is in fact better than the photos and the description of the accommodation! It's a homely villa with a touch of class. It's perfectly laid out to bring a family or group of friends together, while giving plenty of privacy, with each en suite room separately leading to the communal areas and pool. The rooms and bath/shower rooms were spacious, light and airy with tasteful neutral furnishings. The pool was clean, deep and got plenty of sun. The sun lounger was heavenly!
The villa is situated down a quiet street, with the beach and restaurants within easy. If you'd rather stay in, cooking up a meal was easy with an equipped kitchen and a supermarket close by. There's also delivery options in the neighbourhood.
One of the many pluses of booking this villa was the services offered by Jonathan, who manages the villa. He is accessible and prompt. From the point of a confirmed booking till our departure, Jonathan maintained regular contact, answering our questions, making suggestions and organising our transportation. Arriving in a new place can be daunting and Jonathan ensured we got all the support we needed. Being able to pay using PayPal was an added advantage.
My parents, sister, brother-in-law and 9 year old nephew all had a fantastic time, each finding our nook and adventure. I highly recommend Pondok Sari II.
I cannot recommend this villa highly enough! The location is PERFECT! Lots of villas claim to be close to Finn's & Canggu Club...this is really 10 mins walking distance to both and the beach is a 3 minute walk through the LV8 hotel with loads of restaurants & even a supermarket close-by. Very stylish, Bali chic design with fabulous bathrooms and all the little extras you need, including a 50" TV & L shape sofa...such an incredible addition that makes the odd night in so enjoyable! Jonathan & Ailise were amazing! They organised all our airport transfers, full day tours and delivered a rental car to our door for us to get around in...they even arranged a babysitter for when we needed a night to ourselves, not to mention the pool fence they had installed for us! We decided to pay a little bit more for this villa and we are so happy we did. Everything about our stay was absolutely perfect. Jonathan & Ailise really know what they are doing and we cannot thank them enough!
