Did you know? Bali isn’t the only place around with some incredible accommodation spots (and super affordable ones at that)!

Cue Jogja, or Yogyakarta as it’s synonymously referred to, the historic city located on the island of Java, and known somewhat as a cultural hub in Indonesia – today the city is home to many local and international students studying arts, languages, history, etc, and so it’s seen the city bustling with a plethora of trendy hotspots and things to do.

Hopping on the bandwagon as it’s gained in popularity, Jogja has really upped its game when it comes to accommodation and we were pretty blown away by some of the stays and guess what, we’re talking about private pool villas here too – and a few of them at that!

Check out some of the affordable villas we’ve stumbled upon, perfect for group stays, or just ones for a pair of lovers…

A completely private, three bedroom villa, with a huge pool overlooking rice fields, as well as your own garden for chilling, or entertaining – hello evening BBQ!

Step inside the property and you’re greeted by bright Bougainvillea fleurs, palm trees and even a Lotus pond! Following the pretty exteriors, the interiors are just gorgeous and we love the mix or raw and natural materials they’ve adopted in the design aesthetic!

The kitchen and living area has been combined into one separate building, in an open-air space (love!) and the bedrooms you’ll find in the other two buildings, three bathrooms included.

3. Colourful, modern and fun with the ocean right in front of you — Radika Paradise Villa & Cottage

On the hunt for something a little unusual / are you the type of traveller that enjoys a place with interesting design?

Totally on the geometrical side of things, if you’re after a property that not only lends itself to being your very own private pool villa, but that’s got an ocean view too, no need to look any further.

We love their take on a bit of funky design, and there’s some really cool architectural titbits to be discovered around the property.

They actually have six different villas and cottages available, all within the same property – we’d recommend booking their Two Bedroom Villa with Private Pool and ocean views!

4. “There’s no place like home” feels — Villa Arusha

Private apartment? It sure seems like it, however this is not to be confused with your private villa actually!

Villa Arusha feels more like a home than anything else, and they’ve certainly styled and designed it this way – down to the last details (we love all the artwork around the house and key eye for design, so here’s a shoutout to whomever the decorator happens to be).

From the living room to the kitchen, you’ll find each room in the house is open and spacious, plus filled with everything and anything that you need – there’s even a reading room for goodness sake!

6. With breathtaking views, this villa out in the country is ideal for both couples and families — Villa Blue Steps

Kind of castle-y, thanks to the current worldwide situation, you and your darling can also feel like a king and queen for the night as this villa is now available to rent out for just two people too! (And at a suitable price for just two guests – which varies from the usual price of a full-house.)

Photo Via Paul_amron

You’ll find two rooms here, which are fully equipped, and a third room which hosts the outdoor terrace dining area – a trend we’re noticing over here in Jogja and we’re into it!

It ties in wonderfully with the garden and really big pool overlooking endless greens thanks to the rice paddies in front…

7. You mean to say there’s an actual river flowing through this villa? — Ubu Villa

Carrying out true Javanese traditions, this next stay is the ideal combination of past and present.

It feels like you’re in the middle of the jungle here, or perhaps in a scene from The Famous Marigold Hotel…yet still in Indonesia, if that makes sense? And we love it!

Photo Via Rumahjogja_indonesia

Expect to find four bright and spacious rooms, as well as four bathrooms that all open up and are built around a *natural* pool which just happens to be the river water flowing through the property, built into a canal like area.

8. True authenticity at it’s best — Villa Mata Air

If you consider yourself somewhat of a fuss-free traveller, you may have hit the jackpot with Mata Air, found on the west side of Jogja, among a forest of trees and free-flowing streams…

There are actually two different villas available here, one that boasts an actual spring inside the villa, or the other option is a villa built beside the natural spring pool.

Photo Via Outboundkalinyo, Rieriesnugraheny

It’s got all the feels of a homestay, whilst offering a few extra comforts, from flatscreens in the bedrooms, to beds not on the floor…

Overall the villa is well equipped for an entire family stay, sleeping up to six guests with a spacious dining area as well as kitchenette included.

Apart from the natural one, there’s also a private pool great if travelling with young kids (it includes a shallower step pool for the little ones, ideal!).

9. A sweet garden escape that’s just out of the city, but still close to many attractions — Blue Garden Jogja

Totally zen out at this garden villa stay, in a perfect location that’s away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds yet still close enough to the city making the drive just 15 minutes away…

The ambiance here is one of total relaxation and all the chilled vibes. Make use of the guest pool, chill under a cabana with a great book for the afternoon, or catch some Vitamin D hanging out on the beanbags.

Special Mentions

Although these next couple of stays don’t come equipped with your own private pool, the villas themselves were too good not to include, and again, really affordable which makes them an added bonus!

1. The most whimsical jungle stay — Kulatresna

Talk about your very own piece of paradise…Taking typical Javanese design to new modern heights, you can expect to find inspiration also from traditional Balinese features – that travellers seem to love so much!

This white, bright and open-planned space is built on the outskirts of the city, nestled among the countryside, ensuring a scenic green backdrop at all times, as well as a real sense of peace and serenity.

2. A natural and organic stay that feels totally zen — Mahidara Villa

Is it just me, or does this remind you of a touch of an African Safari stay? Yes, no, maybe? Whatever first pops to mind, we love the setup of this wooden and brick villa.

Found near a small village, expect to witness the bliss of locals carrying on with their everyday life, or drink in the endless green views thanks to Indo’s famous rice fields.

Continuing on with a Javanese influence in design, Mahidara has celebrated the mix of traditional and modern aesthetics.

There are four bedrooms in this villa, as well as a kitchen, dining area, living room, and each room has their own outdoor terrace.

Overall this villa sleeps up to ten guests.

3. Looking for a peaceful & quiet stay away from the crowds? — Villa Kayu Yogyakarta

Is authenticity the name of your travelling game? Prefer accommodation that’s a bit more rustic (well, most of the time anyway)?

Built in typical Javanese style using teak woods, these villas are built among the rice fields, and they seem to transport you back in time – in the best way possible.

Although from a time-past, the rooms have been done up with modern amenities and finishes ensuring a comfortable stay.

Wake up and catch the sunrise from the comfort of your private patio, or from the open-space guest dining area/ terrace where breakfast is served daily.
