We are Wim & Phillip, a Dutch/Indonesian male couple 70/47, we love to meet interesting people from around the world. Wim is a retired tv journalist, Phillip a home cooking chef & fashion designer.
This listing describes our Master Room, which is in fact our own spacious and comfortable bedroom. From time to time it is available for guests as well at a rate of € 35/night for 1 or 2 pax.
There is space for 2 additional guests: on a comfortable floor mattress. For an additional guest after the first 2 we charge € 5/pax/night, including the very good breakfast we serve all our guests.
This spacious room with direct access to the outside garden terrace can easily accommodate two couples or a couple with two kids. If for privacy reasons that would not be your choice, then consider to rent both our rooms, which will cost you a total of € 35 for the Master Room plus € 27 for the Guest Room = € 62/night for up to 4 guests.

This stay corresponded with our rental of the other room at theSawah. If possible, and needed depending on your family size, I recommend displacing Wim and Philip and taking this room. The bathroom is great and they set up two mattresses on the floor for children. At night, the AC keeps it nice and cool and then you wake up to the sound of the countryside and a bubbling fountain. Breakfast comes with wonderful preserves from a nearby vendor. Does it get any better?
Without using too many superlatives, it is hard to characterize our stay with Wim as anything but perfect. He runs a very tight ship which ensures guests are treated as members of a welcoming family. In fact, it was as if my daughters were princesses of their own castle. I really appreciated Wim’s willingness to engage or give us alone time. It was a great visit and I can't wait to return.
Wim and Phillip were great hosts! Wim helped me and my friends plan our Yogyakarta trip even before arrival and gave many useful suggestions. He introduced us to a most wonderful driver, Pak Sutarman who became our driver for 2 days in Yogyakarta. The room was big and nice, even with 4 person staying in it. My female friend appreciated the private corner Wim set aside for her in that room. The bathroom was really pretty and nice too. Love that both Wim and Phillip took the effort to ask how our day went and to listen to our stories upon returning to his place. Thanks to the great team at the Sawah who took the trouble waking up early preparing breakfast for us at such ungodly hours!! Much appreciated! Friendly hosts and nice place, what more can you ask for?
Wim and Phillippe are fantastic host. They gave us all the information we needed before our arrival. They manage us a driver to visit borobudur and Prambanan. The villa is situated in middle of rice field. It is very quiet and be on the terrace for the breakfast or the dinner is wonderful. In addition, Philippe can prepare amazing dinner if you want. It is clealy one of the best place to enjoy yogyakarta. We highly recommend to stay here if you stay in Yogyakarta.
