  • Description


    Hello, my name is Santosa.
    I am living in my guest house and farm with my son, Kusuma. We live at the foot of mount Kawi in a village called Wonosari near to Malang city East Java Indonesia. We live in an area of beautiful nature, surrounded by waterfalls, forests, exotic fruit trees including jackfruit, durian, lychee, banana, soursop and cacao!

    My aim is to develop my guest house and farm to be able to serve guests from the local area and abroad long into the future. Our ultimate goal is to bring tourism to an untouched area of East Java and Indonesia. Here you will experience what it's like to live as a local, we can't do this on our own and we need your help! We need help from honest, genuine and kind people. The work is not difficult, and you can stay for as long or as short as you like! We are very laid back and friendly, and we will help you with anything you need during your stay. I will personally show you around the local area, and introduce you to locals who will treat you like a celebrity! Please don't hesitate to contact and connect with me via this website. Thank you so much for visiting my profile or account, may God bless all of us always.

    Additional information about me:
    My guest house is a heritage of my deceased parents that has a system, a voluntary donation system for payment. We always treat our guests like our own family, you will treat our home like your own . We don't have any rules here, the only rule is that we ask you to be kind to everyone you meet! We would love to be surrounded by kind people from around the world that we can call our friends. I Always have an honest and sincere smile. Please do not hesitate to come. I will always open my door for you. God bless.

    Warmest regards.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    These days Asia is becoming more and more westernised, and it's very difficult to find a very authentic Asian experience in an area that hasn't been touched by tourism yet, this is your chance! I believe you will benefit from this by soaking up the local culture, meeting the local community and being treated very well by the friendly locals, who will be amazed to see you! Not only that, with your writing you could bring a huge benefit to us and our dreams, by potentially bringing more tourists into the local area, and to help us improve and create a guest house that can welcome travellers and friends from all over the world! You will experience the beauty of the surrounding nature, with waterfalls, fruit trees, fresh springs and forests!

  • Help


    The help we need is very simple. I have a blog that i keep updated, as this will help with our goal to bring tourism to the area and to provide an honest income for my son and I. All we require is that you come and experience the local culture and surrounding area, and help update our blog with posts, so we can receive views and donations via our blog. If you could help in this way it would be much appreciated! Thankyou so much.
