I am grateful to the people who made my staying near Borobudur and made an amazing impression of Java. In particular, the owners @efatahomestay.borobudur of near Borobudur gave a warm home reception, carefully advised, cooked breakfast with all my “I don’t eat meat and chicken, eggs - too, bread and rice for a breakfast are too heavy and bla-bla-bla” (however, I said mistress about this not to perplex her, but I mean «don’t worry, don’t cook for me - it’s okay»), but breakfast of fruits (including from their beautiful garden) and coconut pancakes exceeded expectations! Guys, I'm ready to return to this place, if only for the sake of these coconut pancakes!!! And Ika Supodo gave me a cute authentic scarf. In their beautiful and lush garden, I felt at home with my beloved friends or relatives. Very good English!

As a solo traveller, Ika and his family really went out of their way to make sure I was very well looked after during my stay at their guesthouse. Ika provided good company, shared his knowledge of the area, was extremely helpful with suggesting good places to eat at, and above all showed a genuine interest in his guests. Ika escorted me to Borobudur temple very early in the morning to secure the best position to watch the sunrise. I also mentioned to Ika that I had a particular interest in the temple's reliefs, so he offered to show me some reliefs that he was familiar with and explain their stories. The room was comfortable, and the location was a convenient walking distance away from Borobudur temple. There is a nearby mosque which I imagine some people may require earplugs to help sleep, however this wasn't an issue for me as the early morning prayer call helped wake me up to see the sunrise! I found my stay to be an authentic and intimate experience due to Ika's warm and welcoming family. Thank you so much for everything Ika, you really made my time at Borobudur feel special!

My experience was excellent to this part of Indonesia and Palm Travel and Tour had arranged my overnight stay at this location. What a peaceful and relaxing stay! The owners/host are an amazing, friendly and attentive family. The room was quiet and very comfortable after my long day of visiting the sights of the area. In the morning there was a very nice and filling breakfast. While a small property it allows the owners the opportunity to spend time with the guest. Very quiet property, well maintained and clean.

What a wonderful little guesthouse to stay at while visiting Borobudur..close to the temple, resturants and all that you'll need to have a fantastic stay there are only three rooms so its very cosy and clean but the best part and the owners ..nothing is too much trouble for them and they go above and beyond to make your stay memorable..room are spotlessly clean thought basic ..bathroom has hit water ang you get a fantastic huge breakfast..l couldnt recommend this place enough especially if you want a few days away from Yogyakarta ...do the village tour and also the sunrise tour of Borobudur..both where brilliant . Many thanks to lka and his lovely wife

What a fantastic place to stay! Our host Ika was amazing from the minute we met him. We were shown to our room and met his wife and son. The room was spacious and extremely clean. Hot water shower with great water pressure. Our room had a balcony at the front and we sat their chatting with Ika about our adventures and ideas. Ika has maps and information on the surrounding area as well as some great books about Borobudur. If you are here to see Borobudur and want to have a local experience, then I would definitely recommend Efata Homestay. Ika was like a private tour guide without being too intrusive. He escorted us to Borobudur at 4am, bought our tickets for us at the hotel who runs the sunrise entry point, then walked with us to Borobudur to make sure we got the best position to see the sunrise across the temple. Once we were in place, Ika left us to enjoy this amazing place!! We had breakfast at the hotel which is included in the sunrise ticket then went back to the homestay where Ika had some tea and snacks waiting for us. Don't hesitate to book this homestay. Ika takes pride in his homestay and genuinely wants his guests to feel at home and well looked after. 10/10 experience! Thanks so much Ika!
