About this listing
This is our second year to run the airbnb..... We find out that airbnb is not only about providing a B&B, but also about how to make my guests arrive safely and comfortably, to promote beautiful places in Indonesia, how to get there. And FRIENDSHIP!!
Something that when I started was just to share the pictures of my house in the internet, is getting serious and enjoyable. Until today 40 countries have sent their representatives to stay here!!
As there are some expatriates who also wants to stay here, I only have 2-3 rooms available for the temporary guests. You and these expats make the house become so global. A place to share and to learn.
As I notice, guests often need this so I provide:
1) Collaborating with a very good driver, a car is available for you! From the airport the cost will be Rp 200,000,- including everything. I recommend this car especially for guests who arrive late after 8 PM.
2) Please let me know if you need train tickets to Bandung or Yogya, or other destinations. I can refer to a friend for a small additional cost
3) Massage after a long journey, for 4 dollars per hour, by a lady
This listing refers to the room with a private bathroom and next to the pool
You can use my spacious guest room, living room and wood balcony for your activities. A multi channel TV is available in the living room. A nice kitchen and its utensils are available for you to use ( fridge, stove, micro-wave, etc). Water, coffee and tea are 24 hours. Feel free to serve yourself.
You can swim in our exotic tropical swimming pool at any time. Please enjoy our garden while you are reading under the sun..... guarantee you will get tanned soon. Two sundecks are available.
My house is located in Cempaka Putih, one of of a few peaceful and prestigious residential areas in the center of Jakarta (you can jog here safely). It is approximately 5 kms to the following: National Monument, Grand Indonesia, Mall of Indonesia, Kelapa Gading. Arround 7-10 kms JCC, Semanggi and Blok M.
From the airport, easily reached by several DAMRI buses: Rawamangun, stop when the bus exiting the toll road at Rawasari, Kemayoran, stop at destination, Gambir station at destination. From here, the easiest way is to take a taxi starting from Rp 25,000,- (Rawasari) to 35,000 (Gambir). From my house you can go to other parts of Jakarta using taxi, Jakarta buses (transJakarta), and other means (ojek), and a combination of bus and train. The trans Jakarta bus shelter is only 5 min walking.
Other facilities? all five minutes walking: gym (however simple things like push up, etc of course you can do it at home, hospital, groceries, restaurants and trade center (Cempaka Mas ITC) where you can find all you need in discounted prices.
In brief, experience yourself..... welcome!

This was the second time we've stayed at Tropical House and it was again a very good experience. We have started our trip to Indonesia there and have spent our last night at the place. The rooms are very nice and comfortable, the garden with swimming pool is great to sit and enjoy the tranquility.
The host, Oi (he is managing this house) makes the experience even better: he is very helpful and friendly and speaks perfect English. He helped us plan our trip, gave us recommendations where and what to eat or stay and drove us from and to the airport. Unfortunately, Oi will leave the place at the end of august, this is very sad since he was the one who actually made our stay at Tropical House a truly amazing time.
Thank you for staying with us and your compliment for the house. Just like his predecessors, Oi was taught to manage the house and run his business for the transportation. I am very happy that they learned and earned a lot while they work here. Very happy to see that they have enough money to start their business!
Prima plek om uit te rusten in Jakarta. Het huis ziet er precies zo uit als op de foto's. Kamer was schoon, zwembad is fijn en in de omgeving zitten op een kwartiertje lopen wat winkels en restaurants. Veilige buurt en een aanrader als je wilt bijkomen van je vlucht naar Indonesië of je reis juist op een relaxte manier wilt afsluiten!
Ho trascorso una notte molto piacevole presso questa struttura: ho apprezzato il servizio di pickup all'aeroporto, la casa é molto bella, con grandi spazi comuni, compresi un bel giardino con piscina. (tutto come mostrano le foto e la descrizione dell'annuncio). La gentilezza e la disponibilitá di Oi hanno contribuito a rendere questa prima notte in Indonesia molto molto piacevole.
Great place, beautiful rooms, very nice and helpful host - the perfect place to stay in Jakarta!
Oi is a very kind and helpfull host and the place is tropically wonderfull. We really enjoyed our arrival in Jakarta thanks to Oi.
This was a brilliant stay and a great start of my holiday. It was as it looks on the pictures. A nice and quiet place middle in the crazyness of Jakarta. Oi, the manager picked me up from the airport and helped me retrieving my luggage, since it didn't arrive with me at the airport. Many thanks for that!!
