“Best place to escape from noisy city!”
Reviewed 2 January 2018 for a stay in January 2017

We had 4 amazing nights stayed here. We booked the whole house for 12 people and got pleasant help from the staff, as we came with 2 of us using wheelchair. Even the fact that this beautiful house have few stairs, it wasn't keep us to enjoy the freshness ambiance of Merapi mountain.

“A lovely location, home away from home”
Reviewed 25 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed at the villa as a group of 7adults and 1 teen. The staff was wonderful, helpful and took very good care of us. We were able to visit all the classic sight of Yogyakarta with ease and even some off the beaten path. The villa is located in the foothills of Mt merapi, it was always a bit cooler then in town or at the temples which was very refreshing. The village had a yummy restaurant just 100m from the villa gubuk coklate merapi which we ate at several times.
Highly recommend this beautiful hidden gem!!!

Reviewed 7 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed at Villa Tanen with my sister and both our families. While their is a ton of things to do in the area, we just did nothing. House was perfect: simple and delicious food, great pool, beautiful surroundings, easy going staff, etc... etc... comes highly recommended if you are looking for a peaceful, comfortable and safe place ... Thank you Maarten + Team. Overall, it was amazing and comes highly recommended.

We stayed last summer in guesthouse Tanen and had A Nice time there. We still make the Nasi Goreng that Dewi learned us to make. We had A warm welcome and pleasant stay. Lots of things to sea, like Merapi, yogya and of coarse borubudur and prambanan. Thanks to Tatang who drove us there. Beautiful clean house and comfortable swimming pool. Beautiful garden. Unfortunately we only have the memories and the photo's.

“Delightful oasis in a busy but beautiful place”

Much to our delight, our experience at the lovely Guesthouse Tanen exceeded our expectations! Our stay was relaxed and enjoyable, from the moment we were picked up at the airport by the always friendly Tatang through to the last of our generous, fresh and tasty meals prepared by Dewi. The house is very clean and tastefully decorated and the pool and garden area is every bit as good as it looks in the pictures. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and all facilities (toilets, showers etc) are up to modern European standards. The variety (and spread) of relaxation areas in and around the house makes it ideal for larger groups; we were two families with 5 teenage children between us. Day trips out with Tatang (in the air conditioned mini van) were great, we could not have hoped to see what we did without access to someone with local knowledge. Tatang also knows where to go for a great lunch, again, places you otherwise would not easily find. Overall, a totally enjoyable (and great value) stay with full credit to Tatang and Dewi for their generosity of spirit and relaxed but efficient running of this delightful guesthouse.
