After our stay in 2011 with Horas Family Home, we decided that we would definitely go back to this place. The owner Berend Bakker welcomed us with open arms. We stayed in Horas Indah for the first view days, because Horas Family Home was not available to us directly. Horas Indah is smaller but still large enough for my family....
