Hello, my name is Bakti. I run and manage Yabbiekayu since 2012 with my amazing team, including; The truly awesome Babun our senior guest relations officer who will quite likely welcome you on arrival, and the charming and delightful Uwik and sweet Adel, our guest relations officers who will probably meet you and assist during your stay. All speak perfect English, have traveled overseas, and have extensive experience in assisting foreigners and Indonesians travelling through Yogya. Between them we are confident that they will be able to ensure you have a magnificent stay. Yabbiekayu: A Yabbie is a small freshwater crustacean that lives in rivers in Australia, whilst Kayu is the Indonesian word for wood, hence the Wooden Yabbie. The name comes out of a crossover of the prior experience of the founder of Yabbiekayu running an internet publishing company in Australia where he was known as the bigyabbie. This combined with his lifelong obsession with timber, mixed with the feeling of joy of the expression "yippieayu!" lead to our unique name. In many ways the name sums up the experience of a foreigner living in a small village (pond) with a love for buildings made from natural local materials Yabbiekayu was always intended as communal and friendly homestay, a place to meet like minded people, to relax and to act as a base for exploring the exciting range of activities that the lovely village of Tembi and the nearby city of Yogya have to offer. At Yabbiekayu our goal is to be a model of ecologically sustainable tourism, creating quality employment for local people while sharing the remarkable experience of life in a small village in Java in sustainably built and managed bungalows. We offer a distinct Javanese style of highly personalised service and as such are here to assist you in any way to ensure your holiday is as perfect as possible, We can help out with requests from hiring motorbikes, masseurs or babysitters to finding a good optometrist, a secluded temple or an exciting art exhibition. Our dream for Yabbiekayu is to be small, friendly, adaptable and flexible to your needs and wishes. We look forward to your visit.
