Detailed Overview

Situated on the shores of Sambolo, one of the most pristine beaches on the west coast of Java, Rumah Joglo is just over two hours drive from Jakarta. The 150 year old, traditional Javanese Joglo, offers two master bedrooms with large windows facing the sea. The 1110 sqm seafront property provides for privacy, tranquility and convenience with a self contained kitchen, large grass lawn, and beautiful sunsets.

Within walking distance from Rumah Joglo is a pristine nature reserve with a unique selection of fauna as well as a spectacular waterfall where one can enjoy a refreshing fresh water swim. There are several walking tracks available through the lush tropical rain forest and the local fish market offers excellent seafood treats for a very reasonable price.

During construction we developed a good relationship with the local community and found trustworthy staff to help maintain the property and provide security. The house is fully furnished including all essential kitchen utensils.

The house caters well for children and cot and baby chair can be arranged. Our staff can also help arrange boat trips to the islands (sea conditions permitting), do shopping and cook food for you. We recommend the BBQ seafood buffet.

For overseas guests airport pickup can be arranged. We will book the car for you and the driver will pick you up from the airport. You pay directly to the driver and can also arrange to rend the car for additional days.

Whilst there is no Wi-Fi in the house it is very easy to obtain a USB modem with a local SIM card. Mobile connection is very reliable.

Everything on the property is for your use and enjoyment. Smoking inside the house is now allowed but you can of course smoke on the front or back veranda. Cigarette butts should be disposed of responsibly.

Note that we are able to accommodate for additional guests beyond 4 adults, especially children. The extra charge is USD19/night. Cot and baby chair for children can be arranged. Just send us an email and let us know. We will however not accept more than 8 guests including children.

Our staff is there to assist and cleaning is of course included. The staff can also help you with cooking, shopping, child minding, arranging trips etc. but you will need to pay for transport and for their time. You can arrange this directly with the staff who will be more than happy to help. Please give our friendly staff a tip at the end of your stay, especially if you think they done a good job.

Look forward to welcome you to our house.

"The Perfect Getaway"

Had a great couple of days at the Rumah Joglo Sambolo. The place was well kept. Food wasn't a problem at all, with the perfect caretaker to provide to my needs.

The place had its own charms, great ambience to be in , one that I would very much like to repeat.

I highly recommend this place to go to recharge.

So glad to hear that you liked it !

"The perfect escape from Jakarta with small children. Beautiful rustic houses in peaceful surroundings."

We loved our stay at Rumah Joglo and will definitely try to come back. The staff is great, surroundings are totally relaxing and the real plus is that it is not too far from Jakarta. Why bother with Bali really!?

Thank you too for referring your friend to us !

"Great house, wonderful view"

Brilliant location right on the water front and overlooking Krakatau - amazing sunsets each evening. The house is wonderful, in traditional style with beautiful furnishings and decor. Our young kids loved the large garden surrounding the property for playing soccer, riding bikes etc and they also loved swimming exploring rock pools right in front of the house.

It was great to have you staying with us !
