Great house, spotlessly clean and very spacious. Swimming pool is great, our children loved it. Nok and her husband are very friendly (hooray for google translate :-)).
We had a wonderful time visiting some of Indonesia's highlights like Borobodur and Prambanan. The villa is well located for such day trips. It comes with a nice pool (after those hot trips, quite welcome). Traveling with a family of 4, the villa was more spacious than needed, with 3 bedrooms. Nok and her husband (who live in the area attached to the villa, still privately), were accommodating to our requests (google translate required).
So great!! Houses like this and hosts like Dian are what makes Airbnb the best way to travel. The house was amazing. Better than I imagined from the photos. Comfortable bed, great kitchen, bathroom and pool. And all in a nice area. Nok (the housekeeper) and her husband went out of their way to make our stay relaxing and comfortable.
And Dian, the host, even introduced us to her friends and local artists. She made our stay much more enjoyable than if we were just tourists in a hotel.
We stayed for 5 nights at this lovely house. The house is generally the same as listed in the listing. It was perfect with the pool especially after a long hot day outside. The rooms provided were spacious and could have been better if clothes hangers were also provided in the cupboards. Dian (the Host) was also prompt in providing assistance when needed. She assisted in getting a driver for us throughout our stay here in Jogja. However, the driver services provided could have been better if he could be more attentive towards our safety and needs. Laundry services was just 1 minute walk from home and mini mart within walking distance. We didn't get to explore the neighbourhood area as we were pretty much tired from our daily activities and preferred to just hang out by the pool or the living area. The housekeepers were kind too in helping us out whenever possible. Overall, I would rate 8/10 for the experience staying at this place.
The house was beautiful and the pool was great to have after a long day out. The live-in maid and her husband are very nice and helped arrange a private driver for us. She also cooked us amazing Indonesian breakfasts everyday! The house is just a short drive to Malioboro, we didn't have any issues getting a taxi. There are restaurants within walking distance as well.
We stayed at Dian's place for almost 3 weeks, with my wife and our 5 month old twin girls. Her home is such a wonderful place. We had a very memorable stay, the house is spacious and pool is a treat. However, it was the housekeepers that made our stay very special. We got to know Nasuha, his wife Nok and their young daughter Fitri very well. They keep the place immaculately and go out of their way to help you in every way possible, from calling taxis, to hiring a bike, to suggesting places to eat. They don't speak English but Nok does understand a fair bit. As I was in Jogja learning Indonesian at language school, it was great to practice my Bahasa with them in the evenings. Dian also arranged for us to hire Nok as our nanny during the day to help my wife with our twins while I was at school. Although not part of her usual duties, she was superb, very patient and caring (like many Indonesians are towards children). The location is good, 10mins by taxi to Jn. Malioboro, which is only $2. We found some great satay nearby, a nice seafood restaurant and mini market, all 5 mins walk from the house. As it's not a tourist area you can walk around nearby villages hassle free, talk and meet locals who are always happy to greet foreigners with some small talk and a laugh! We loved that about the place. As suggested by another reviewer, it would be nice if there was a more comfortable lounge suite in the living area. The air-con throughout the house is adequate, there are however no ceiling fans. Will definitely stay here again when we return to Jogja.
Quick to reply questions and all agreements have been met. The house is beautifully designed, spacious and centrally located. All rooms and bathrooms are perfect and the beds sleep fine.
The live-in maid and her husband will do anything to make your stay comfortable. The pool is the cherry on the pie! A perfect place to come back to after a long day of work, sightseeing or whatever.
Although the furniture is gorgeous (javanese style teak) it has some room for improvement; there's no bedside furniture in the master bedroom and no sitting/lounging furniture in the garden near the pool. Also the couch in the living room isn't very comfortable and it's impossible to do some cozy cuddling on it. If you want to chill out properly, do like us and bring your own inflatable mattress :)
