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.
