Interaction with Guests
We enjoy helping our guests. We like to learn about their background and motivation to travel in Indonesia.
Unlike the notorious backpacking area Jalan Jaksa, we're in a safe, gated neighbourhood.

Other Things to Note

Stayed with Henry for 2 days before heading on a 1 month trip across Indonesia. I had nothing planned for my 1 month trip so Henry was so kind to help me out and gave me some advise on where to go in order to avoid tourists. Henry is the best host you can wish for. During my stay he took me around in the city, showed me local food and introduced to all the great "secret" spots in Jarkarta.
Room was nice with air condition and so was the Indonesian breakfast.
I give my stay at Henry's 5/5 stars.
Staying with Hendry the first night in Indonesia was so great. We arrived late but that was no problem for him. He and his family were so kind and tied to help us with everything! The best part of staying with Hendry was the great breakfast :-) We are enjoying Indonesia very much, especially the friendly, kind and positive people!
Had a pleasant 3 nights here. Hendry is really helpful. Was a lil hungry on the first day and had not yet ventured out yet. Had a home cooked meal prepared by the two friendly domestic helpers Hanna and Rina. The house is also near to the mall which is just a short walk away. Great time. Will recommend to anyone going to the area
We had a very good experience at Hendry's place. He and his family are friendly and very helpful. The room was perfect, we also had our own bathroom. Breakfast in the morning was also included ! I definitely recommend anyone to stay here ! :-)
My visit in Hendrys home was my first experience at airbnb. Because of that i had problems to manage the booking. Hendry was very helpful and friendly, so i got along with it. As i arrived at his home i met his friendly flatmates who were very nice too. He explained me and my friend very kindly all we had to know. A very nice host in a nice neighbourhood. If we are in Jakarta again we would like to stay there again!
Small but sufficient and clean room with a good airconditioner. Nice terrace!
Thank you, Hendry!
I stayed at Hendry's only for one night but I felt great. Everybody in the house is very nice and I had all I needed there. The bathroom was very nice and clean. If I had to stay in Jakarta for a longer time, I would definitely choose Hendry's place again
Hendry was really helpful, responsive and responsible. He had no problems helping the driver to reach the dorm and even arranged for us to be picked up to the airport at 2 AM and waited with us!
Room and private bathroom are really clean, rooftop view is amazing and his dogs are just cute and playful.
Neighborhood is very clean and safe, and house is very well located in a calm and nice part of jakarta. Will definitely stay here whenever in town.
