Lo spazio
This is our newest most rustic bungalow built on the top of the hill just above our "Limasan Twins" bungalows and the "Rumah Atas Hill Top" wooden house.

You will enjoy a top great view as you will be about 35m above sea. However about only 4-5 minutes to the beach about 200 meters.
You will be also at one with nature with the birds and sound of waves.
Behind your bungalow is just forest and farm fields.

The concept came from visitors demand who can't afford our more expensive Honeymoon bamboo Lodge to have an alternative bungalow to offer. The local people also did push us to build a new one with bamboo, as they love doing it and we are probably the only place around letting contractors and architects inspiration free on building.
We let the local villagers constructions workers who worked on the Bamboo Arkom architect masterpiece" free rein.
The result is a mix of modern bamboo architecture and ancient traditional Javanese bamboo house where farmers used to live before government bring concrete house architecture in the villages.

It was built using only local stone bamboo and acacia wood. The only foreign things are the many plastic eco bricks made by beach warung Watu Kodok old ladies, from beach cleaning trash. We used them for fondations and water tank, as collect rain water from the roof into a big water tank located under the house.

Recommended for outdoor, nature lovers people, backpackers, people travelling on a budget but still looking for sustainability and green life style which low cost homestay usually put aside.

The bungalow is about 22 m2 included bathroom and about 4m2 terrasse in front. It is ideal for 2-3 people. There is only one room and one bathroom.

For families or groups of more than 3-5 people looking more comfort for you can book the other two Limasan twin bungalows or Rumah Atas Hill Top just underneath.

We also still rent for honeymooners/couples our Deluxe "Bamboo" Honeymoon bungalow,
bigger groups or families our traditional Joglo family Villa and Balai Dormitory.

Accesso per gli ospiti

We would appreciate your order at least a day in advance as fresh slow food take time to be harvested and prepared.
Our meals are traditional farmer and fishermen inspired local dishes bringing you what the surrounding environment freshly produce into your plate with taste and modern creativity.
For all our meals we ask you a flat rate of 45K rupiah per person (50k rupiah during indonesian school holidays because of the increase of food products).
It is included water and tea and organic local coffee for breakfast.
For longer stay you can also pay it in advance through Airbnb on request to avoid to have to bring to many cash.

We are lucky to have women from our village community which are fabulous gastronome and cooks from generations on, preparing this traditional tasty meals with love and passion.
Thanks to you they get the opportunity to get out of their house kitchen and be empowered and recognized as Chef, offering you high quality home cooking.

We don't have menu but they will cook a single dish decided in the morning following season and what they got from the farmers, market and fishermen. Unlike most of eateries we like to offer bigger portions of fruits and vegetable. The meal are then vegetables, with our ancient red rice grain or gluten free noodle or any local root like cassava (manioc) with fresh catch of the day from the ocean or alternative vegetarian/vegan traditional meals.
Local people used to eat most of the days vegetarian, having fish only a few time a week and meat only for special days when they sacrified one of their animal.

They try to follow their traditional customs which was very locavore, using product ultra local from the costal area and the salt being the longest travelling distance product, about 150km, volcanic pure natural salt. Our suppliers still work following traditions, as small scale artisans and farmers with passion of doing what they love.

Some of our superstar products:
- Fresh Moringa leaves and flowers (expensive superfood in western countries) from our permaculture trees, to make omelette, soup, special curry soup and more.

Your host is graduated in food engineering and specialist in nutrition for any advise you may need.

The house is within walking distance, about 100 meters, 2-3 minutes, from the pristine quite Watu Kodok white clean sandy beach where you can sunbathe, relax, meditate, enjoy drinking a fresh coconut, eating a nasi goreng and swim if you are skilled swimmers (it is open indian ocean with high amplitude tides coefficient) and the waves can be big depending on the season. However don't worry too much we swim often here without problem. Just be aware and prepared.
You can even try bodyboarding for the adventurous one. (we have one snorkling gear, swimming googles, two body boards and one old surfboard.)

The alternative for enjoying the ocean safely are 2 swimming lagoons at the neighbor beach Drini. One not deep for children and non swimmers and another one further, within walking distance, our favorite lagoon, protected from big waves, which is perfect and safe for swimming and snorkeling when the tide is right (around mid tide).

We recommend to bring lycra to protect from the sun and booties as you may encounter at some places natural hazard as sharp rocks, urchins, corals or anything that may heart your foot.

We are at the beach but we are so much more than a stay at a beautiful beach. We have beautiful farming fields, country side and forest as back yard. Traditional villages and many karstic caves to be explored.

We are primary an environmental and sustainable learning center to show that living using one planet is not such a terrific life but the other way around as some of us are ex-city people :-)

We are also a Social and Cultural learning center. We are passionate about Javanese local culture, music and arts and like sharing social experience with local people. We like to introduce you to social activities which are our highlight, make us very different if you are interested.

We also recommend to enjoy our garden and neighbor farmers with their cows and goats.
Don't hesitate to ask us for an introducing tour around the property to show you the hidden places and best view and also how works our sustainable compound, with black water treatment and biogas, grey water treatment system, eco architecture, permaculture garden, the rain water tank collectors. We just ask people to put an up to your heart donation into our donation box to support our projects and make possible our activities to continue as we have high maintenance cost.

We offer free hammock on every bungalows front balcony and additional if you want to hang one anywhere on the garden

We are part of the community Refillmybottle. We offer safe drinking mountain water for refill your own bottle. We just ask you to put a minimum of 1000rp per small bottle and 2000rp for big bottle into the donation box to able us to finance our project of banning the use of single use plastic objects, Ecobricks making and the beach cleaning to keep the beach nice for all.

We have an affordable car and local drivers available for bringing you around.

The villagers rent scooter/motor to explore around.

Free access to our hill top gazebo and bench for meditation and our balai building for workshop, meditation, Yogya, Pilate, children playground or whatsoever inside activities you may want to do by yourself on your own for free.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
You will stay in a still natural countryside ecosystem where humans need to open their mind and live harmonised with the nature and its inhabitants who were living here long before us. Even accepting sharing sometimes mutually the area with some bugs or geckos living around us.
We try our best to offer best standard of cleanliness and hygiene but don't expect the place be as clean and sterile like western high standards big hotels as we are located in unspoiled indo country side, surrounded by farms, forest and beaches.
Bungalows are not hermetically closed to get natural breeze air circulation and you may get little bit dust or leaves and salty moisture air from the ocean wind. The bathrooms have also open roof to feel the nature.
We don't use chemicals to clean but natural soap, white vinegar and soda powder like our grand-parents did.

This area is only open to tourism for a couple of years. We were the first to do it at our beach since 2014. The local people still live around us their traditional farmer and fishermen Javanese life. We ask you to respect them and their customs as we are their "guests". The local people and us we don't practice "tourists" or "foreigners" prices, same price for anybody. All the prices unlike tourists area do not include 15-20% services and taxes. We ask you to not use this opportunity to exploite them as they already have been for centuries. One of our philosophy is share, enrich not exploite. Their income and margin are very little that's why the prices are low. We encourage our visitors to round up and tip generously the people and the service you use and get if you are happy with it. They have the same right to get fair salary and have access to the same standard of living as anybody has. Not tipping is seen as you may not be happy with their meals, driving, massage or whatever they offer you. 10 to 20% is fair, but bear in mind that nowadays you can't buy much in a shop with 1000 or 2000 rupiah, so never leave just coins. You can also offer presents is you are invited or want to extra reward people. Tipping is not only good for your karma also you will get more respect and reward from the people. More you give is more you get in all the sense of the word.

Please take note that our crew and people working for tourist at and around our area are not hospitality tourism professionals. People were farmers, fishermen, construction workers, public servant or office people etc... We are all new in this field and learning by doing. So cannot expect to get the full 5* resort standard service in our area, as tourism is very new.

Our second philosophy is to limit our impact to the minimum on a fragile ecosystem area, with scarce natural resources to be shared with all the people living and visiting around the beaches.

We don't provide AC but there is natural sea breeze (extra small fans can be offered on demand) and the architect built it in a way to make the most of it.

No hot showers (not a must in tropical hot country) but fresh water (we can if you really need it cook hot water) and we and the earth will be very happy if you save water as we have limited water tanks and spring capacity particularly during the dry season. Please save electricity as we still depend on government coal power station (turn off lights, limit charging batteries).

Please come with your reusable water bottle which you can refill with safe drinking filtered water (we are part of refillmybottle community). we just ask small donations 1000rp for small and 2000rp for big bottles to be put into our donation box, which we use to finance our zero waste project and the refill zero waste water station.

Please be aware that in this area there aren't any trash management organised, people burn or dump trash in the nature, so please do not bring with you non compostable single use disposable plastic products as our place can't handle it or if needed bring it back with you to the city after your stay as many guests like to do.

The closest ATM and very well furnish supermarket are more than 30 minutes scooter or car driving from our places. Only local warungs, toko. Credit and debit cards are not accepted in the region. So please take enough cash and what you may need extra.
You are up to immerse yourself into our Home where true nature, healthy life style and tranquility reign. A break to boost inner energy for your Mind,Body&Soul. A place where social distancing is for real. You can experience Eco simple life back to nature and Javanese traditions and culture.
