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 250,000,- 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!

Wir hatten zwei sehr gute Nächte bei Herman. Wir wurden vom Flughafen abgeholt und Herman hat uns jeden Wunsch erfüllt. Ein super Haus , in einer eher ruhigen Ecke, dieser hektischen und lauten Stadt Jakarta. Sehr empfehlenswert!
Refreshing oasis in crazy Jakarta with spacious room and beautiful Garden with Pool.Arrived around 1.30 am, but was warmly welcomed.
We had a lovely stay at Herman's place. Herman and his staff were very attentive and a great help to retrieve a mobile left in a taxi! Our room was immaculate and there is very nice outside area to chill. Defo would recommend to stay at Hermans.
The house is good&axle an and the staff is nice but it's a pity that we didn't get a chance to see Herman. We would extend but the house was fully booked on last week so that we need to leave. Now we make the booking again and we may see those nice ppl tmrw.
Herman is a good host. He ensured that we got to his house and ensured that we were expected by his staff. Later, our eventual meeting with Herman was very pleasant and cordial. He is an accomplished, polished person being kind and gentle as well. His house is as depicted and is a very comfortable space.
Overall great experience. Everyone at the tropical house were full of smiles and willing to help. The only drawback I'd experience was the mosquitos - but for the most part I will stay again at the tropical house.
Herman e una brava persona che ci ha aiutati ad organizzare i nostri giorni a Jakarta. La casa e grande e spaziosa. Il quartiere non lontano da centro e comodo a prendere taxi. La stanza era pulita. Herman ci ha fatto fare il late check out senza problemi.
