Villa, Private room - Banyuraden, Indonesia

ID 176977


Private, quiet, Alamkita's 2 bungalows are 15 minutes to center of town, located on a river off Jl. Godean just west of Ring Road surrounded by trees and stunning rice field views with fresh-water swimming pool. Perfect for short or long-term stays.

If you are single or a couple; a consultant, here on business, a writer, or work for an NGO or university for short or longer-term stay in Yogya, you'll appreciate my relaxing, peaceful privacy, natural surroundings and close access to the city.
Alamkita is also perfect for tourists or your house guests who are looking for a quiet place to come back to after a day of sightseeing.
Situated on a bluff above the river, surrounded by bamboo groves and towering trees, looking out over lush green rice fields and small fish ponds below, you'll enjoy beautiful views from your private balcony - after taking a refreshing dip in the fresh water swimming pool.

Alamkita means "our natural world" and is a small private homestay designed and built by us with two separate bungalows located right on the river at the edge of a Javanese village. The soothing sound of water flowing over the dam is a constant background symphony. Only a 15-minute drive from the city center of Malioboro, my located just past the west Ring Road off Jl. Godean.

Interaction with Guests
I speak English, Indonesian and Javanese. I will enjoy sharing our knowledge and love of Yogya with you, answering your questions and helping in any way I can. And, I also respect your need for a quiet, private retreat.

The Neighborhood
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.
I ask that you please dress politely when you're out in public.

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. I can assist you with a car or motorbike rental during your stay if you prefer.
