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!

We had a great stay at Tropical House! Our room was simply amazing, large, comfortable, with a direct access to the pool. The entire house was stunning, including the small, tropical garden. Even though it was our first time in Indonesia, we immediately felt at home, also thanks to our host's kindness. Absolutely recommended and hope to come back!
It was our first time in asia and indonesia. Couldn't imagine a better start. Oi you're a really friendly and kind person. You helped us with pretty much everything. We really appreciate this. It was also interesting and good fun to get to know you.
The house is beautiful, its located in a good area of Jakarta. We loved the clean room and the pool.

Nice room! Oi, an employee of Herman, helped us a lot. He picked us up from the airport, got us an indonesian sim-card and number and helped us getting traintickets to Bandung.
I had an absolutely fabulous stay at Herman's. The pad has a real touch of luxury about it and is set in a very nice, affluent residential area with lots of useful shops and restaurants nearby. Best of all, as other reviewers have posted, is Oi's wonderful, smiley, knowledgeable service. He had everything covered from airport pickup to plane tickets to tourist advice. The entire experience was effortless and hassle free. I'll definitely be staying there again on the return leg of my journey.
It was our first stay via airbnb and we are really positively surprised how it worked. We stayed two nights in hermans house. Oi the employee of herman picked us up at the airport with a warm welcome. The house is beautiful and very clean and the garden with the pool is small but good for relaxation. we enjoyed our room very much which had a direct access to the pool from our bathroom - pretty cool ;-) we want to say thank you to oi who made us feel home and told us many helpful things about Indonesia!!
We had a very nice stay in tropical house! The room was very clean and we only need to open our bathroomdoor to jump into the nice pool. Oi, the manager, was so helpful and friendly and he made our stay in Jakarta much more nicer! Thanks!
