    Room was better than expected from the photos. Enough food options and good size portions. Staff were great, with genuine friendly and personal service (it only sleeps 6 so you are never many). The location on edge of town is very nice to unwind,...

Tyson Sitepu and Ellie
Charming Villa home with detached garden bungalows surrounded by private tropical garden. Garden bungalows feature a private terrace with seating and a hammock, with a beautiful view over the garden and rainforest covered mountains. The property is surrounded by farmland and nature with no other properties in sight. The garden features seating areas to relax and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.
We are a family run guesthouse. Tyson is Indonesian while his wife Ellie is from the United Kingdom. They are friendly and kind hosts who ensure you have the best experience in Bukit Lawang. Both hosts are nature-lovers, who are interested in conservation and protecting wildlife. They also run a successful ethical trekking company, Sumatra Orangutan Discovery. You can see their reviews on tripadvisor or visit their website; sumatraorangutandiscovery At their property they grow a tropical garden with organic vegetables and fruit. They love spending time in their garden with their pet cat and dog. They can arrange an itinerary to suit your travel needs, and provide a number of authentic local activities and workshops to give you insight into Sumatran culture.
The Villa and bungalows are set in a quiet, peaceful area surrounded by farmland and mountain views. Bukit Lawang main town is 20 minutes walk away, while the local village and highstreet is 10 minute walk away. The property is only 2 minutes from the Bohorok River where you can swim and enjoy a bbq. The entrance to the national park is nearby. This location is an ideal spot to begin your jungle trekking.
