Kolam Ikan kecil (Small Fish Pond) : You will see many in Homestay Heru
Selamat Pagi! During my recent trip to Yogyakarta (Jogja) I stayed in Homestay Heru, and loved the experience. I liked the place, caring but professional owners, two course meal (meal with fruit), and facilities…… all. The house is choice fully made, if you wish to sit in a silent corner (not in your room actually) to enjoy your cup of Javanese coffee, you have options in plenty – go to the three terrace areas, or sit in the courtyard, even at the rooftop….amazing. If you wish to know about Javanese culture ,cuisine,places to go for shopping and what not ....Ibu and Bapak (owners) are the best person. Ibu is very informed ,she knows a lot about France too.  

Let me tell you a little more about home stays. When you are travelling on your own (or wish to save some money) Family run Home stay is a good, safe and economical option. There are plenty of home stays in Yogyakarta (Jogja).  The tariff per night starts at Rp. 90,000.( almost equivalent to Rs. 450 in india).In Rp.125,000 you can get a decent room with decent (European or Indonesian) breakfast. Some of the homestays come with a package of breakfast plus dinner as well. Jogja Homestay Heru is one those – They serve European or Indonesian breakfast and traditional Javanese food in dinner. There offer any time tea coffee facility,assorted fruits during meals,further, they will take care of your laundry as well. Tariff is Rp. 1.050.000/week (equivalent to Rs.5,250) for an air conditioned, wi-fi connected single room.
