My house has 7 bedrooms. I used two of them. As I want to keep my house quiet for my guests, I only rent 4 of them. If you arrive and there are no other guests, you are free to choose where to stay. From a room next to the swimming pool & garden (SPG)(1), close to SPG (1), over-viewing the SPG (1), viewing tropical garden (1) and a studio with a pantry over-viewing a Jakarta skyscraper.
Most of them have equal size (4x5) with double bed, own artistic bath room, 24 hours speedy wi-fi, large cupboard.
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 and studio. 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.
My house is located in Cempaka Putih, one of of a few calm and prestigious residential area 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, it is 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 10,000,- (Rawasari) to 20,000 (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.

In brief, experience yourself..... welcome!

I really enjoyed my week long stay at Herman's. It is well-located, it is easy to access public transit and the house itself is absolutely stunning.
Although I only met Herman briefly on one occasion (he lives in another house), he was kind, considerate and attentive to the needs of his guests.
Thanks again, Herman!
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Great location and fantastic host! The place offers a calm shelter from the bustling city of Jakarta which we very much enjoyed. Herman is a fantastic host who helps to make your stay in Jakarta as enjoyable as possible! This was our first Air BnB experience and we are absolutely impressed!
My girlfriend and I loves the place. A local community just 5 mins away walk. 24 hours store around the corner. Herman wasn't around for the first day I checked in but his helper was there to help and even left a hand drawn map and note to show the neighbourhood. I would love to stay in the next time round when I come by!
We just stay 2 nights, but it was good!
The place is very quiet and very nice.
Herman gave us all the informations to arrive to his place, and also he gave us some advices for your trip and help us to book for some hotel.
I hardly recommand it!
Thanks again Herman for everything!!
We didn't get to meet Herman because he was away on the night we stayed in his house but we really enjoyed our time there nonetheless. The room was comfortable, clean, and quiet. Exactly what we were looking for!
I have to agree with many reviewers: Herman is the perfect host in busy Jakarta! Besides a beautiful home stay, he offers all the help and service you wish for. In my opinion he is the perfect example of 'Indonesian hospitality'.
We've had a great time in Jakarta from dec 30 - jan 3! Herman responses very quick. The house is wonderful, very clean and in a safe neighbourhood. With public transport and a busy road with taxis and bejaks neirby you don't have to walk far to get somewhere.
Do (email hidden) and protection if you don't want to get bitten and keep the doors closed if you don't want to ' enjoy' the karaoke :)
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
