Friendly expat guesthouse in unbeatable downtown Jakarta location, also adjacent to Dutch-colonial Menteng district. More privacy, independence than apartments. Daily housekeeping & laundry. Minimum 12 month lease.

The space

Large private bedroom and attached bathroom (en suite) in fully-staffed, Indische-style house with Batavia-era furnishings. Teak furniture, shelves, work desk and fridge. Optional second room with bathroom (e.g. as an office).

Superb use of space and trained domestic staff means max privacy and independence. Int'l standard AC, Internet, etc. Daily housekeeping and laundry included. Breakfast, yes we can!

Guest access

Unit 1 is conveniently located downstairs just a few steps from the main entrance. Full kitchen, dining area, step down lounge, gardens, terraces etc. are shared. Membership at 5-star fitness/pool facility available for $35 month (easy jogging distance).

Interaction with guests

Operated by Indonesian-expat couple as a guest house, not home stay. Happy to share a cup of brewed cacao or chat about the traffic, but our main concern is keeping your AC cold, showers hot and clothes pressed.

Other things to note

We've hosted guests from a dozen countries over the years so please don't hesitate to ask for references. OK, let's do a broadband speed test. We recycle, compost and have an elderly but friendly cat. Yes, suitable for events. Sounds fun. Let's discuss.

House Rules

None really. HOWEVER, bike hooks and motorbike parking only. Please don't slam doors. Please don't take advantage of enormous tolerance generally accorded to foreigners in Jakarta (by being an asshole x ). Slacks, jackets, lingerie are laundered (i.e. dry cleaned) at cost; normal wash (cold water) is free (i.e. included) professional executed and we don't weight, count or make a fuss about it. Yet, if the item of clothing is expensive or unique, guest should arrange for having it cleaned him/herself.
