  • Description


    Hello.. mixed couple indo german having coffee farm besides leuser national park. The biggest part of our land is forest and some part of the area cut down by previous owners either is already grown back or in progress of reforestation. Aside of construction works we always need help at our farm like harvesting, fertilizing, planting. We grow our Coffee without any chemicals and process it by ourselves. We offer you to stay in our place with a stunning panorama and a good chance to see various wild animals including orangutans. Accommodation is rather simple due to the fact that our house is still under construction but so far all our visitors were happy. We always try to fulfill your personal needs regarding food but since our place is remote and offgrid sometimes not everything is possible. Just let us know about your diet in advance so we can tell you if we can provide it. We are pretty relaxed and don't expect that you work allday but we also don't provide free holidays 😉. We always take time for some activities with our guests like jungle tracking or socializing with our neighbours and learning about local culture, depending on your interests. If you visit us you can expect to be treated like family members by us and our 4 children age toddler to teenager 🤪 If you are interested just contact us for more details...
    Looking forward to meet you.
    Greetings Maria & Martin
