  • Moss Garden Cottage & Cottage of Peace

    "The names of these two cottages say it all. It was such a peaceful place to spend our evenings and early mornings. This worked very well for us. We were two couples (all approx 55yolds) and had one of the cottages each with an adjoining door. We were all very comfortable. We believe 6 adults would be a bit of a squeeze but not impossible. If you are lacking stability/mobility/confidence on your feet we would suggest the Peace Cottage rather than the Moss Cottage as once you are inside everything is on the one level except the initial entry. All the information provided by the agent about the cottages is accurate. We stayed for 7 nights from January 7 2014 during cold conditions and were very comfortable with the heating provided. The agents were prompt and efficient in dealing with us throughout the booking process and very helpful with information and assistance with other aspects of our stay. Please note that only the Moss Cottage has a microwave and only the Peace Cottage has a laundry. This worked ok for us as we were sharing with people we knew. If only booking one cottage I would first check with the agent regarding if the other is booked as the walls between cottages are very thin and this may affect your stay. Location is excellent. If you wish to get to Kyoto Rail Station we suggest a 10 min taxi ride for approx 1400 yen as opposed to 4 subway tickets at approx same price. This saves time (if 2 people then more cost effective on subway). There are many interesting sites within walking distance. The Japanese people on the street are very helpful and we never had any problems getting around or finding the sites. Most nights we were walking the streets until 10pm or later and felt very safe. It was a wonderful experience staying in these cottages."

Indonesia Travel Tips

Visitors to Indonesia Vacation Rentals

Indonesia is a beautiful tropical paradise. The country is made up of more than 17,000 islands of which only about 6,000 are inhabited. Some of the islands are land masses that are shared with either Papua New Guinea or Malaysia. Sumatra, Java and Sulawesi are the three largest of the islands wholly owned by Indonesia. Indonesia has many beautiful beaches and coral reefs. Because of its year-round warm climate, it attracts many sun lovers and people who enjoy beach vacations.

Bali is known for its vibrant night life and well-run beach resorts. The coral reefs in Indonesia are some of the best in the world. Scuba divers often are those who like to visit the more remote islands and dive on the pristine coral reefs that are found there. Indonesia is a place that is culturally interesting. Eating out is an experience and the local food is fragrant and spicy. Many fruits and vegetables are grown on the islands and make up a major part of many of the local dishes.

Attractions at Indonesia Villas

Bali is the most well known of Indonesia's islands. It has a wealth of resorts and has probably the most efficient tourist infrastructure. The area is a contrast of beautiful sandy beaches and forested highlands which attract the more adventurous travelers. Sulawesi is known for its top-class dive sites. On land, it has an equally rich diversity of fauna and flora. Sumatra is an island that is known for its rugged landscapes and wild natural resources. It is also one of the most populated on the islands and holds great cultural wealth. Kalimantan is the far southeastern part of Borneo. The island is an adventurer's paradise. Thick jungle covers most of the island which is home to the well-known Orangutan. The island of Java is where you will find the big city of Jakarta. If you have an interest in Indonesian culture you can experience it here.

Finding Your Way to Your Indonesia Accommodation

While there are numerous airports in Indonesia, because of the many islands that make up the country, the three main airports are found near Jakarta, Denpasar on Bali, and Surabaya on East Java. Most international flights from Europe, North America, Australia and other Far East cities will arrive in either Denpasaror or Jakarta. Often for flights from the United States, you will need to route via one of the nearby Far East cities such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Toyko or Kuala Lumpur. If you are already traveling in the Far East, you may consider taking a ferry from Malaysia as this is more affordable. However, be sure to check the weather report before traveling as some ferries will depart even if the weather is too dangerous to travel. In general, the safest way to travel from point to point in Indonesia is by plane. There are good regional flight connections that can take you to some of the more remote destinations. Stick to the more reputable airlines as the low-cost offers are usually on local airlines that are poorly maintained.

Best Time of Year to Visit Indonesia

Indonesia straddles the equator and therefore has a warm and tropical climate. There is very little temperature variation between the seasons. In fact, there is no such thing as summer, winter, spring or autumn in Indonesia. Rather, the seasons are referred to as either being wet or dry. Typically, the dry season runs from April to October. This is generally the preferred season for travel. One thing to note is that rain still occurs in the dry season; it just rains less. The wet season is from November to March and generally the low travel season.
