We had a hard time finding the driver at the airport when we arrived, maybe it was because of our flight delay. Upon our arrival at night, we are offered a free ride to get our dinner.
The house itself is very big, nice and comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped. We really enjoy staying at there. The only disadvantage is that it's a bit far from the city center and sometime we had some problems trying to get a taxi.
Very nice apartment, clean and cousy stay. The owner is very kind and helped us with every need. Definitely I suggest it!
We were very comfortable in the house, and Mariah was very kind with us.she can offer you car with driver although you can get it cheaper at city in the backpacker friendly (website hidden)'s in a quite neighborhood but due to Ramadan wasn't impossible to sleep because of the fireworks, music, muezzin pray,etc. And the sunrise in very early without curtains in the Windows. Air con is In the rooms but not in the living room. Beds are big and very comfortable. They bring you the breakfast every day, to cook yourself. Mineral water was include and a box of cookies Wifi didn't work during the four days we stayed in the house, we were told was a company problem. Don't use the washing machine, you get your clothes dirtier. In conclusion, we had a pleasant stay in the house, the staff was very nice and helpful, the communication with them very easy, and it was a relaxing place in Yogja. You need a taxi to go to city center but taxis are very cheap (2 euros)
Overall, we had a very good experience at Ruth's place. While the location wasn't great as it is a bit hard to find (even for one of our taxi drivers), Maria, Ruth's sister was more than accommodating and helped us with everything from booking cabs to finding a driver on short notice. She even had breakfast delivered for us each day and was all around incredibly helpful! As a side note, the wifi was not working while we were there but it seemed to be a short term issue. Thanks for a great stay in Jogja!
The house is clean & has everything we need. Pak Jar is very helpful. And the Nasi Kuning is very delicious!
This house is perfect if you are travelling with a big family. Not for fussy traveller who is looking for a 5 star accomodation as this house has it's basic amenities.
We were welcomed by Ruth sister, Maria who explained all the details to us. Even when she was not around, Maria replied to our messages instantly. On the day of arrival, after the hectic afternoon of not locating the house, we text Maria to ask if there is any food delivery service. Maria then made an exception for us to get her Uncle to buy and deliver the food and even recommended a few dishes to us. The food was amazing. If you happen to be in the area.. go look for Dapur Ibu i think.. for the ikan gurame! Delicious!
The only problem we had was the location, both our drivers could not locate the house. It took a while until the driver spoke to Ruth uncle for location. We used the same driver for 2 days just so we didnt have to go through looking around for the house. It is not a spot where you can easily walk out.
Overall, coming from Singapore, it is definitely different to stay in this kind of house and area. :)
On the day of our arrival, pak Jarmoko greeted us warmly, and he passed the house key. He was kind and friendly. He explained to us of the available services, and also what to do if a blackout happens.
Pak Jarmoko made sure that we get our breakfasts delivered every day, and the menus of the breakfasts are shown with photos on the table of the living room. Breakfasts were delicious!
House is adequately clean, rooms are spacious, and each room's bed is big enough to fit 2 big adults. Every room has an air conditioner, but living room has none, might have been because it is connected to the kitchen and washing area, since there's no wall divider, and the washing area has a half-open ceiling. It can get a bit humid in the living room, but 2 standing fans are provided.
Amenities are complete, so that means we can pack lighter!
In the living room, the TV has only local channels, but it has hdmi & usb slot, and luckily I brought my movies-filled usb disk, and we were watching movies after every day trip.
The house is located in a private housing complex with security guards guarding the 1 way in/out.
Overall, we are satisfied with our stay, and I think it's a great value for the location too.
What an excellent experience! We were welcomed at the house by Ruth's mother and she made sure we were well informed about everything in the surrounding area, especially the restaurants . She checked in on us every day to make sure we had everything we needed or to answer questions . Lanie even made her driver available to drive us to Borobudur and Marlioboro at different days, it was a absolute luxury! The last day her driver dropped us at the station which saved us a lot of trouble.
The house is very spacious and incredible value for money. She gave us a choice from different breakfasts every day that she delivered to the house. The house is in the most beautiful landscape of suburb and rice paddies, great for walking. It was a real adventure. We can highly recommend it!!
Hi Ian, Thank you again for staying with us. Glad that you enjoyed your stay and visit in Yogyakarta.
The house was wonderful, clean and comfy! it took us awhile to find since there were st #. house was nicely equipped with biscuits, water when we arrive. Ruth Uncle is very helpful too, he deliver breakfast, help us call taxi to the airport. the place is quite a distance from the main rd. if you dont have mains of transportation, might be good to taxi booking # in hand :) but we liked that its at a nice and quiet location :)
We liked the house. Everything was ok. The host was friendly and helpful.
Ruth and her husband are very nice and kind guests. They left the apartment in good condition. It was pleasure to meet them.
Me and Antonio were very happy to host Ruth and her husband. They are very polite and sunny persons. We gave them suggestions and they were excited to visit our beautiful surrounding.
They always are welcome in our house.
Unfortunately I didn't have the pleasure to meet Ruth because her flight was delayed 5 hours. She called from Amsterdam to advise me about this delay and organized the check in with her siblings. I really thank Ruth for that. It was a very nice gesture. I welcomed her wonderful family to my apartment. They are very nice people and very polite. They left the apartment in perfect conditions. I definitely recommend Ruth to other owners. My door is wide open for Ruth and her family. Thank you, Jose
La famiglia di Ruth e fantastica, sono dei ospiti dolcissimi, puliti e ordinati. Per me è stato un piacere ospitarli e li consiglio a tutti gli host di accoglierli a braccia aperte.
Very pleasant young people! Always welcome
Ruth and her Family were great guests! They were easy to communicate with, kept me up-to-date with arrival details, and followed the house rules.
The guest came on time and left the apartment in a proper way.
Ruth and his Family were lovely guests. She´s keeping everything clean. It was nice to have Ruth here and I wish Ruth all the best! And of course, I would welcome Ruth as guest everytime again. :)
