This bright and cozy house offers a beautiful panorama view over rice fields. Located at the edge of a suburban village it is the perfect spot to relax in tropical nature and to explore the village life. Although in the countryside, it´s located only 15 min away from Jogja´s city center.
We are a German-Indonesian family that has been in love with this area for years. All day, there blows a soft, chill wind, the Sawah Breeze, that invites people to relax and forget about their everyday life.
Built of washed bricks, the house offers one cool and spacious room that is furnished with a wooden king size bed (180 x 200) and suits well to individuals and couples. Thanks to it´s panorama windows, the room is bright and provides a wonderful view over the front yard garden and the rice fields behind.
The house is surrounded by tropical nature. Birds chirp in the morning, a chill breeze blows all day, geckos crawl around and at night frogs are performing their concert in the fields.
Witness all this from a set of restored traditional chairs on the wooden terrace that invite to sit, relax and enjoy watching the tranquil life in the rice fields.
Attached to the house there is an semi-open-air bathroom that is beautifully designed using natural materials. The toilet and sink area, however, is covered with a transparent roof that makes sure that you stay dry during rain. In our unique jungle shower you can take a bath both with cool or hot water.
In our semi-open air kitchen you can make coffee or tea for free. It is equipped with a stove, basic kitchen utensils and a water dispenser - perfect to prepare snacks or a simple meal.
On request, we provide an extra bed (140x200, matrass on the floor) for up to 2 people.
We serve breakfast with a choice of several dishes: Bread & egg, Muesli, Bubur (rice porridge with vegetable) or Nasi Goreng (fried rice) together with coffee, tea and fruits.
In walking distance in the nearby village and along the main road, there are several Warung (food stalls) serving local food during day and nighttime. A 10 min walk away, there are 2 small hotels that offer a choice of Western food.

Outras coisas a ter em conta
By building “Sawah Breeze” we wanted to create a place where we can both connect to the area around and enjoy privacy. We decided to not build any fences or walls with the aim to live in harmony with the people and the nature next to us. In case you need privacy, you always have the chance to close the door and rest inside.
You may see farmers working on the fields or tending sheep and they may look at you or greet you. In that case, we kindly ask you to just smile and greet back and contribute to the harmonic atmosphere that the people there are used to.
Our land is located in the middle of tropical nature. And of course, there are also other creatures living there. We do our best to separate their and our habitat but please consider this fact when making a booking.
“Sawah Breeze” and the rice fields are a perfect natural playground for children – also for ours. However, we do not promote the place as kids friendly. Especially toddlers might not be completely safe due to the nearby stream as well as the ditches in the fields.
We are a German-Indonesian family with 2 princesses that lives in the suburbs of Yogyakarta Indonesia. Silke is a psychologist and works as an Intercultural Consultant, Riyanto is an artist and runs a ceramic and home design export company.
We have been in love with the area around our guesthouse since years. We love nature and the tranquility of village life there. Our daughters enjoy playing in the fields, looking for "golden beetles", running and cycling around and also sometimes getting very muddy ;).
We built our guesthouse to have a place to relax at the weekend, to welcome relatives and friends and - to provide a convenient spot for guests from all over the world that like being in nature and experience Indonesian rural life from up close.
