About the neighborhood
Please understand we're still learning and growing. If you have helpful suggestions for improvements we want to hear. You'll have the opportunity to experience village life right from your terrace, watching farmers tend their fields, women washing clothes in the stream or kids laughing and playing in the water. Even better, go for a walk along the river to the dam, or through the rice paddies. A smile and greeting of 'Mari' or 'Monggo' to the people you meet will bring a big smile in return. You're also a short 5-minutes walk from the main road with access to mini-markets and other shops. We ask that you please dress politely when you're out in public.
Getting around
Located a few blocks from Jl. Godean, just west of the Ring Road, you are only a 15-minutes car ride from the main street of Malioboro. Getting to the southern tourist area with many restaurants is about 20 minutes, while the airport is 35-45 minutes away. Car and motorbike taxis are inexpensive here and readily available. Public bus transport is on the main road, a 5-minutes walk from the house. We can assist you with a car or motorbike rental during your stay if you prefer.
