About this listing
Renting one of our bedrooms, very close to the airport and 30 minutes away from the center of Jakarta. Highway are 5 minutes away. Amenities provided and of course there will be fast Wi-Fi! Great foods are on a walking distance
The house is located in the Muara Karang neighborhood/area which is one of the safest and also upscale houses. There are tons of foods to explore just in a walking distance.
Moreover, it is very close to the airport so it definitely helps if you have an early flight out. Plus it's not far from the CBD (approx 30 minutes by highway) and the highway is only 5 minutes away.
We have several malls close by: Pluit Village, Pluit Junction, Emporium Pluit, and Baywalk Pluit. If you are more into cafes like the one you find in Holland Village Singapore, we have a place called Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK) that is just 10 minutes away.
If you need to buy things we have a supermarket and a mini market in a walking distance (less than 5 minutes). Plus if you love playing basketball, you can play in the neighborhood field for free.
We can also arrange you with a translator or car rent or anything you need while you are staying with us.
The bedroom and the guest room outside is available plus the kitchen too. But the other bedrooms are off-limits.
Since the bedroom is on the second floor, you can only use the 2nd floor bathroom.
Interaction with Guests
Most of the time I will not be at home since I'm working on my business from 10AM to 8PM. Aside from that, I'll be able to help you getting started in Jakarta.
It is very safe neighborhood to walk at day or night. Also a quiet one so you will never have to woke up to any annoying sound. Foods are literally everywhere too, so it is one of the best place to stay.
Using taxi is the most convenience to go to the CBD, but our Busway (TransJakarta) is just 5 minutes away by foot.
Other Things to Note
Check in time: 1PM
Check out time: 10AM
Although I'm pretty much flexible, I prefer that the guests don't make loud noises after 12AM. There will not be any curfew whatsoever but if you are out late, make sure you give me a heads up.
Close to the airport (30 min) Joshua was very friendly and helpful and waited for my arrival with a very late flight. Basic room with good wifi. Make sure the taxi driver can call him to ask for directions.
I can only recommend Joshua and his apartment. Its not far from the airport so if Jakarta is a stopover city for you, it maled perfect sense to stay here. Joshua is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
