We really enjoyed our stay at Horas Family Home: friendly and helpfull staff and comfortable rooms. We stayed for 2 nights at Horas Indah (suitable for 5 people) that has a nice porch with comfortable couch and chairs. And for the last night Mian and Berend treated us with an upgrade to Horas Family House. This house has more space... More

We booked this place via email for 1 night. Mr Berend went out of his way to help us arrange for shared taxi to pick us up from our hotel. He also helped us arrange shared taxi to Berastagi. The guided tour we booked via the hotel came with driver with good command of English. We loved the dinner here... More

We stayed here with a 1 year old and a three year old - our days consisted of feeding the bunnies, jumping from the diving board on the dock, feeding the bunnies, hanging out next to a fire on the pier in the evenings, playing games on...

We are group of two booked Horas Family Indah for two nights. We visited Dolok Tinggi Raja in daytime and caught the last ferry to Samosir Island. It was 8:30pm. We did not have our dinner because it was long way from KNO airport to Parapat via DTR. The staff who accompanied us ordered meal for us in advance. Car... More

Our Mom and Dad's hometowns are in Samosir. This April we decided to visit the places. 6 grown ups + 1 infant. We still have relatives in Samosir but we decided to rent hotel rooms or a cottage. Browsing through the internet we stumbled upon Horas Family Home. 1 cottage with kitchen and private family room quite interesting. So we... More

Horas Family Home comes with a price tag, but you get exactly what you pay for - which is a first class service and a perfect place to stay. From enquiry to booking I received information in detail about the accommodation, the facilities (all included in the price not like other properties) and transfers. Everything went like clockwork from being... More

Our time at Horas Family Home was a wonderful experience. The staff are amazing, and Miam and Berend made us feel like we were at home. Berend was very helpful in every step of the way. He helped arrange a pick up from our hotel, then to the Medan airport to pick up a couple of my friends, and suggested... More

Berend and Mian were wonderful hosts. The accommodations are the best on Samosir Island. Berend is a logistics wizard and if you're willing to share a few Bintang beers, he'll tell you a good story as well.

We were greeted by Berend and Mian upon our arrival at Horas Family Home. We stayed at Horas Indah for 2 nights and it was a memorable stay. Our children enjoyed feeding the rabbits and fashing very much. At the same time, we plucked some freshly grown organic vegetables and cooked for our meals. Mian is a very good cook.... More
