The space
THE HOUSE
Rumah Gladak - this is how the house is historically named - has originally been used to store and dry rice grains. We placed this sweet little house in a nice spot of our land with a vast view over the rice fields.


Rumah Gladak is a small simply furnished space with a bamboo bed of 140 x 200 cm perfect for one person or two people. Adjuncted to the house is a spacious open- air bathroom integrated in a small tropical garden. We provide eco-friendly, home-made natural soaps.


A few steps away from Rumah Gladak we newly built a kitchen for your private use, equipped with a small fridge, basic kitchen tools, coffee, tea and a small dining area surrounded by the garden.




FOOD SERVICE
We offer breakfast, prepared by our staff. We also arrange delivery of traditional food from the village and close-by restaurants for lunch and dinner.


For breakfast, we focus on local products. You can choose between: bread and eggs , rice porridge with spicy tempeh sauce, Rice flour porridge with banana or Nasi Goreng (fried rice). Every breakfast is served with tea or coffee (coffee will be from our own coffee roastery) and a selection of tropical fruits.


MASSAGE
We arrange massage for guests by massage therapists from the village. On request, our staff is making an apointment for a massage.


YOGA
We offer private Yoga classes in our newly built Yoga Studio, situation on our land.


COMMUNICATION
We offer a mobile phone with an Indonesian SIM card, so guests can arrange appointments and tours.


LAUNDRY
There is a laundry service based on your needs.

Guest access
On the land is also a garden studio for Meditation, Yoga and small Workshops. It is equipped with Yoga mats and some sitting bags to relax.

We arrange private classes for Yoga with a Yoga teacher coming to our place. (Price 250.000 rp for 90 minutes). Please let us know in advance if you want to get a private Yoga class.

We also arrange a Workshop in Jamu making (Javanese Herbal Drinks) to take place at the garden studio. Length is around 2 hours (Price 250.000 rp).

If you want to dig more into the Javanese crafts, we can arrange as well a Workshop in Wayang Kulit Figures (Shadow Puppets) from a master in our village and a Batik Workshop in the beautiful Village Giriloyo.

Other things to note
In the process of building the properties on this land, our vision was to balance between privacy and connectedness to our surrounding.

We decided to not building fences or walls towards the rice fields to not block our view and also to not create boundaries between us and the farmers. We also share the land with the father of the landowner, who is guarding our houses by day and night.


Rumah Gladak is built in a way, that you can close the door, retreat into your house and small private garden if you need privacy.


While, when you open your front door to the small veranda, you have the opportunity to get a real feeling and sensation of the daily activities of the traditional rice farmers.

INTERNET
We have wireless Internet. Suitable for people who need to work while they stay in our place.







CATS
We have currently three cats, who control that no mice and snakes enter the living areas. If you are a cat lover, you will be happy because they are all very sweet and happy to sit on you. If you have a cat allergy or just don't like cats, our place might be not the right choice.




COPING WITH TROPICAL NATURE
The picture might make this already clear, but we want to make sure before you book: we are in the middle of tropical nature. So it means if you come, you should be not too scared of nature and its creatures. Please reflect on this by yourself before you book.




KIDS
We do not promote our place as especially kid friendly as it might not be safe for children with the ponds on our land. Though, we used to have families, who really enjoyed staying in our place and families are welcome when they feel the place fits for them.

We are a German-Indonesian couple, working in the field of film, dance and visual art and based in Berlin, Jakarta and Yogyakarta. Our third base, Yogyakarta, is the newest one. When we saw historical Javanese houses been more and more exported to Bali and Hawai, we decided to buy two houses and build them on a strip of land in a village outside of the city of Yogyakarta. First thought as a refugium for us, to escape the pollution of Jakarta. But since we are traveling a lot for our work and we don't like empty houses, we decided to offer our houses to guests, who want to get closer to Indonesian culture and nature.
