1 story house in Pematangsiantar, Indonesia

The house is located on a university complex; no traffic around the house. Supermarket in walking distance. Pematangsiantar is a typical rural Asian city of approx 100,000 and offers almost everything for modern lifestyle.
The house is not a high-end, 5-star luxury home, but modest Western-Javanese fusion style. It is approx 200 sqm and offers 2 bathrooms, a big living room, a dining hall (seating 10), 3 bedrooms (2+2+1 beds and an additional bed couch), 1 additional room with a baby bed (and lots of toys for children from 0-5). It is equipped with ceiling fans, partially AC, washing machine, fridge/freezer, gas oven, free internet access, CDs and DVDs, as well as a piano and classical guitar.
There is also a nice veranda overlooking a palm garden.
Our cook and house maid will look after house and garden - no household chores necessary! The house maid cleans the house and does the washing and ironing. There's also a cook coming every day; she'll prepare delicious typical Indonesian meals for you and she can do the basic shopping (meat, veggies, fruits) on the local market. Their service is included in the house swap. Our garden provides fresh homegrown pineapples and bananas.
We offer our 8-seater mini-van (2009 Toyota Innova, with AC). For going on longer trips into the countryside, self-driving is not recommended (this is rural Asia), and we strongly recommend to hire a driver for such plans.
 
Nearest international airpiort is Medan-Polonia (MES). Next international hubs from there are Singapore (1 hr flight) or Kuala Lumpur (45 min flight).
Our personel is fully payed and at your disposal; their service is included in the house swap (except the expenses for the driver when going on a longer trip).
If you want, we can even arrange Noah's nanny to come and look after your child some hours every day.

The house is a perfect base for exploring the Batak highlands of Northern Sumatra: One hour drive to Lake Toba - one of the biggest and most beautiful volcanic lakes in the world! Spectacular views, volcano climbing, historic villages, coffee and tea plantations, hot sulfur bathing. Go watching Orang Utans at Gunung Leuser National Park or indulge in colonial style in Medan!

We are bound to university holidays (4 weeks around Christmas, 3 weeks around Easter and 6 weeks in summer) on behalf of our part of the exchange. But if you do not mind to live in our guest rooms during your stay in our house, you might come (almost) any time to Sumatra.

 Unser Haus liegt sehr ruhig auf einem Hochschulcampus; Stadtzentrum mit Einkaufsmöglichkeit in Fußnähe.
Im Haus leben in einer Einliegerwohnung 2 Hausangestellte, die sich um Haus und Garten kümmern. Vom Selbst-Auto-Fahren wird dringend abgeraten, insbesondere für längere Touren ins Hinterland. Selbst wir nehmen für solche Fahrten einen Fahrer!
Ca. eine Stunde Autofahrt zum Toba-See, dem größten Vulkansee der Welt: Spektakuläre Natur; Vulkanbesteigung, heiße Schwefelquellen, historische Batak-Dörfer
