Please note that we don’t provide Wi-Fi internet at our house. Most restaurants and lounge places in town have good internet access these days.
The house will be cleaned on a daily basis and a handyman/gardener is onsite to handle repairs. Due to the fact that water supply is still limited in Labuanbajo, we appreciate it if you can be moderate with your showers.
For a small fee we can do the laundry for you with our on-site washing machine.
Airport pick up is included in the price. To ensure a smooth pick up transfer we will ask your name and flight number before you arrive at Labuanbajo Airport.
Our land is currently divided in two pieces, one half of which can be used by guests (private house with balconies, big outdoor terrace, garden/flower area, and one half is flattened to build a second house end 2015.
Other Things to Note
We have lived in our house with two toddlers, and we have always watched them, but because its a 2 storey house there are some risks involved for families with children under 5. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns and i can explain more about the premisses and garden area.
Over the years we have established a good relationship with our neighbors, please be sensitive with loud music. For smokers, please smoke outside on the terrace and not in the rooms. This to ensure clean and fresh rooms for other guests. Thank you.
Pluses :Sunset views like no other. Hot hot showers. Great aircon. And smooth communication with owners and pick up from airport. And just outside of the noisy and very dirty Labuan bajo
But Sometimes even good places are a miss. The home doesn't have wifi which was my mistake. The upstairs unit with two beds and bath is the nicest part. Great views hammock. Clean and bright. The downstairs unit (master) needs some work. Paint peeling from ceiling. Bidet faucet leaking unless shut off and a Serious mosquito problem with no nets ( but I think rosalien was going to put some plug in devices after we departed).
If you don't need wifi and you are traveling alone or with someone you don't mind sharing a bathroom and room. take the upstairs room. It's a gem and worth it
From my impression these guys are amazing hosts and I imagine most of the misses will be corrected quickly.- aside from Internet- I don't think they plan on installing till service is more reliable in the area -fair enough.
The best place you can find in Labuan Bajo! Both Rosalien and Kasim were very welcoming and helped us in every way they could.
The location of the place is close to the city and even closer to the best bar in town (Paradise Bar). We liked it so much that we stayed a second time during our trip. Highly recommended!!!
Dear Rosalien and Kasim,
We loved to stay at your home! It's clean and comfortable, has a balcony with a stunning view, great breakfast and a perfect location! Kasim showed us around and even took us to his friend's wedding! The other day we went snorkelling on the most beautiful little island! He even organised a fairly cheap Komodo trip for us! The paradise bar is just 2 minutes away and the city centre is very near as well as the Komodo airport! Rosalien kept in touch with us way before we arrived and made us feel welcome even beforehand!
We are so glad that we stayed here and wish the family and all friends we met only the best for their future!

An excellent place to chill out and watch the boats coming and going in the bay, and to enjoy the sunset over the islands at the end of the day. This is a place which is better than the pictures! The host was excellent, assisting with the planning of trips (including our negotiations with local fishers), and was very attentive including delivering fresh bread in the morning to complement breakfast. The property is located on the edge of town which makes it just a short walk to the centre and its shops and restaurants. Highly recommended.
Fantastic stay -- highly recommended. The home was even better than the pictures portrayed. The room was comfortable, the facilities were all there, and the view from the balcony was amazing. The home is in a great location very close to town, but far enough away for there to be enough peace and quiet. Great value for money too.
Thanks to hosts Rosalien and Kasim for being so helpful during our stay and efficient with the booking process.
The reservation was canceled 12 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
About the Host, Rosalien
Hi, we are Kasim and Rosalien, a Manggarai-Dutch couple with 2 young children. We have lived in Labuanbajo for over 10 years while managing the massage training centre for people with disabilities (Yayasan Ayo Mandiri) in the centre of town. Rosalien is a physiotherapist and Kasim a well experienced tour guide and driver. Besides empowering people with disabilities and guiding them on their road to independence, we have put all our love and energy in building our beautiful house. For education reasons we moved to Bali in 2013 and since then rent out our house so that more people can enjoy staying at our home on this beautiful hillside location close to town.
We speak English, Dutch and Indonesian (Rosalien) and English and Indonesian (Kasim) and we can provide you with lots of information about Labuanbajo and its surrounding areas. When you meet Kasim at the house you can also discuss day trips (in Manggarai district or to Komodo National Park) and overland trips with him, and he can refer you to excellent dive centres. Kasim, and occasionally Rosalien, will be at the house to receive you and explain the house rules and practicalities.
