Believe all the raving reviews about the garden, staff, location and accommodation, they are all true! Here something a little different to further your confidence in booking at Horas family Home. Arriving at the ferry port in Parapat my wife and I were well informed thanks to Horas excellent customer service which starts the moment you book. In classic Indonesian... More

Our stay in Horas Family Home, Horas Indah and the new Horas Mini was even better than two years ago. This time we stayed in all three. The owner Berend and his staff keep improving. The flower and vegetable garden is really beautiful. We plucked the fresh organic vegetables for our own cooking. Everything is well laid out and the... More

Skip the big, impersonal resorts in Tuk Tuk and stay at Horas. You'll feel a warm personal touch from the moment you arrive. The entire team is extremely friendly, the rooms are generous and lovely and the attention to detail throughout the property is amazing. I stayed for three nights and had a wonderful time from beginning to end.

The kids loved this place, naming it "awesome, not just great". Coming from living in a condo we enjoyed the garden area and Lake Toba frontage, particularly feeding the rabbits, the fishing, the kayaking, the vegetable garden inspection and photographing the orchid collection. We ate almost all our meals at the hotel, with the food overflowing. Kids didn't want to... More

Me and my partner have been travelling through Indonesia for the past month. Horas Family Home was probably the best accommodation we have stayed in on our entire trip, and surprisingly, also one of the cheapest. After staying in a crappy place and looking at other hotels in the area, I would say it is probably the nicest one. The... More

Owner was very helpful prior to the stay as well as during the stay. Stayed there for 2 nights and throughly enjoyed it. Fantastic place just to relax and do nothing. Food was excellent, particularly the babi guling. Highly recommended if you are in a big group. All in all, a place worth visitting again. Perhaps for a little bit... More

We, a group of 11 pax, stayed at Horas Family Home & Horas Indah for one night. Being the first time to Lake Toba, we enjoyed the breathtaking scenery. The warm hospitality given by Mr Bakker and his wife, and Mr Mark, had made our trip even more enjoyable one. We gave them a call after we started journey from... More

Very homey place run by Dutch Berend and his Indonesian wife. Good service and good food. They can arrange all kinds of tours and transport if you would like to. Two appartments and a house to be rented. We, family of four, stayed in one of the appartments, just behind the house. Lots of space and privacy, large bathroom and... More

We weer stayed 1 night each at Horas Family Home and Horas Mini. Great welcome by Mr Bakker at the entrance when we arrived. Room is clean and comfortable. Full kitchen facilities provided in case you want to cook yourself. You can even pick the fresh organic vegetables infront of the Horas Family Home for cooking, it's free. We ordered... More

I visited Horas Family Home for the third time and it is still a lovely place. The owners keep improving the property ant the facilities. Free kayaking, free usage of the boats and so many animals. The kids were fishing the whole day eating their catch of the day at dinner. The food is excellent and we love the breakfast.... More
