Evy is a very nice lady. She never fail to help me when i'm in need. She care and help her guests sincerely. Abah, the house staff is a also helpful person. He showed me around city and always smile. The house is located in traditional village area, so you can feel real Indonesian culture. Also a convenient place to stay with plenty of delicious food! This place is absolutely amazing! i'll definitely come again. (:
Evy was very welcoming the entire time. She responded quickly to our inquiry and helped us find the location over the phone. She was very sweet and accommodating, and made us feel like home.
The entire home was a really nice oasis among one of Jakarta's authentic not-so-fancy neighborhoods. While located without taxi access (you have to walk from the road with your stuff), it was an easy walk taking less than one minute.
A wonderful guesthouse/homestay with large, clean rooms, a great roof terrace and fantastic hosts who can't do enough for their guests. Evy and Billy were keen to answer all my questions no matter how silly, and provided a lot of nice little touches like banana fritters made with home grown fruit. The place attracts quite a few long stay expat guests which tells you how welcoming it is. The area's quiet and friendly, with good public transport links to the main tourist destinations. Highly recommended.
authentich Jakarta experience. Ideal for backpackers, no frills but all the essential services are there (clean towel and bathroom, comfortable bed). Very quiet, then if you walk 2 mins you are in authentic Jakarta village, delicious street food, kids everywhere and very interesting daily life of locals. If you are not looking for authentic experience but want to keep being in westernized world, is not the right place. If you want to feel part of the country and be immersed in it, absolutely recommended. Host is very kind.
Location is good. The neighborhood is an authentic urban village nicely withdrawn from the Jakarta traffic. The family running the place is really friendly and truly helpful. We have benefited a lot from their many advices from eating places to transportation.
