Be our guest in our nice tropical villa, either in the Compact Guest Room (standard) or in the spacious Master Bedroom (upon request, special occasions) or rent the whole villa when we ourselves are traveling (very occasionally). Enjoy the calm and green beauty just outside the bustling colorful city of Yogyakarta. Not just a place to sleep: a place to stay. Where the hosts see you as their friends.

The space
We have three different AirBnB listings, all for our home hotel, same location:
1. Compact guest room with romantic queen size bed - available year around.
2. Master bed room with a king size bed - spacious and stylish - only available upon request or when we travel. Sleeps max 4pax, if 2 floor beds are added (e.g. for a couple with kids). Minimum stay 3 nights, preferably 5 or more.
3. The whole tropical villa, including the staff - only available when we ourselves are traveling. Preferably 2-4 weeks or more. Sleeps max 6 pax.
For the general description and photos see option 1.
For availability, prices and booking see the option that interests you most.


We are Wim & Phillip, a Dutch/Indonesian male couple 74/51, we love to meet interesting people from around the world. Wim is a retired tv journalist, Phillip a well-known fashion designer & home cooking chef.

This listing describes our Master Room, which is in fact our own spacious and comfortable bedroom. From time to time it is available for guests as well.
There is space for 2 additional guests: on a comfortable floor mattress. For an additional guest after the first 2 we charge extra, including the very good breakfast we serve all our guests.

This spacious room with direct access to the outside garden terrace can easily accommodate two couples or a couple with two kids. If for privacy reasons that would not be your choice, then consider to rent both our rooms - if available.

See listing 1 (the Guest Room) for all other details about our home hotel.

Guest access
The Guest Room is small, but house and hospitality are big. You can use both completely during your stay. Very good breakfast included: Western or Indonesian. Optional: big authentic Javanese rijsttafel dinner, 2 pax minimum, rp 150.000/pax

Other things to note
We recommend to spend minimum 3 but better 4 nights in and around Yogya. Once you book we send you our long list of tips & suggestions and will be pleased to help you plan your stay well. Recommended ideas: 1 day with car/driver to the temples and volcano, 1 day to explore the city by yourself, 1 day with car/driver to do the rural Bantul tour: our non-touristic green district with lots of handicraft. This tour finishes at the legendary Parangtritis beach.

Kasihan, Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta, Indonesia

We live opposite a big green rice field (sawah) zone, hence our name. Nice for small walks or bicycling. Many small typically rural villages around us. No noisy mosques next-door. :-)

During your stay
We try to host our guests as friends. We are open to stories and conversations, which can help you understand Indonesia better (sorry if we are travelling...) The Guest Room has no tv, but in case you want to watch news or a movie or so, you can use the tv and/or dvd-player in the living room.
