On the way to yogya we booked the house (2h before arrival) and this was no problem for mister Haris.
We were dropped of at his lovely blue house in a quite neighbourhood. Just what we needed after a long bustrip. Mr Haris was waiting for us and showed us his nice, spacious and clean house.
Two upstairs bedrooms with private bathroom. One big room and a smaller room. On the ground floor a really big bedroom with private bathroom, a open livingroom and a garage. In front of the house a lovely garden and in the back a kind of patio with an attached bedroom with two single beds and an open small kitchen, enough to make breakfast and an evening snack.
We stayed there with 7 persons and the house was perfect! But mr Haris is why we would really recommend his homestay!! This great indonesian guy with a big heart helped us a lot. We rented a car through him for a decent price with drop-off and Pick-up service. He booked our traintickets and helped my brother tremendously when he needed help.
Yes it is a bid far from malioboro (but will only take you 20min by taxi) it is quite, clean and big enough for a family. And everything you need around the corner.
Have a Great stay in yogya!!
