Kus, thank you SO much to you and the others for a fantastic few days at your homestay. You were so friendly and helpful, made us feel so at home and comfortable and looked after us so so well! The two trips we did with you (megalithic site, waterfall and floating village) as well as walking around the rice fields were incredible. We had so much fun and couldnt have seen half as much if we had tried to do it by ourselves. We only wish we couldve stayed longer and wish we have known about the overnight tours you do beforehand, as we wouldve stayed longer so we could do one! Best of luck to you all
Oliver and Mathias Swiss
Dear Kus dear everyone who was here and take care of us. We really enjoyed the Homestay and it was very interesting, it was our first time in Indonesia and in Asia in general. We surely gonna recomended your offer to other travellers we meet and know, it was great fun to play these traditional games with the local people, and next time we will beat Chevy in chess! :) Oliver and Mathias
Matt England
Dear Kus and family, Thank you for welcoming me so kindly and showing me around. The rice fields near your home were wonderful to see, and interesting surprise to see the motorcross! Also thank you for organising for me to teach in a couple of different schools in the South, I am sure it will be a great experience. Anyone who visits Bule Homestay will have found memories of their time here, I guarantee it! Matt England 22-07-2018

My boyfriend and I spent three nights at Blue Homestay back in August. Not only is the scenery of Cianjur incredible, but also is the hospitality of Kus and his crew. We did two very impressing tours and hope to do some more one day. It instantly felt like home and became my favorite place to stay on our Trip. We will definitely come back in the future.

Kus und sein Team waren super hilfsbereit und sehr herzlich! Der Ausflug ins Remote village ist mehr als empfehlenswert! Ein tolles Abenteuer mit Camping und leckerem auf dem Feuer gekochtem Essen! Das Homestay ist gut zu erreichen und Kus unterstützt dich bei der Planung der An- und Abreise. Hier gibts kein Massentourismus sondern das echte Indonesien! 12-08-17

Cianjur is beautiful place (Enak in bahasa) with rivers, lakes, rice fields and plantations. MUST visit for nature lovers. Overall nice stay with Kus and his friends in Cianjur. Highlights: my 3 night stay included cycling trip, visit to floating village, kebun raya (botanical gardens) in Cibodas. Also sight seeing to near by villages. Kus helped with all arrangements and personally accompanied to all places. He knows the locations and villagers well. He also arranged masseur at home. Cycling trip was the best experience. By evening whole body was hurting but thoroughly enjoyed the journey 23-3-17

We have had such a lovely time here with you all. After a few days traveling to Indonesia from Jakarta, we were made to feel welcome at home as soon as we arrived. The whole family has been even so kind, friendly and helpful. Thank you for the delicious food, tea and coffee and for teaching us about your beautiful country and culture. If you ever come to England we would love to return the favor. Hopefully we will see you all again! Fiona and Ebn Mars 7-

Floyd and Katie Australia
Kus, Family and friends. The time has finally come to an end. your humble abode, and your kinds ways will live in our hearts for the rest of our days. by now we are chilling in the land down under reminiscing on Indonesia tropical thunder. Ancient knowledge we gathered like students with new found powers, like new born mutants. Gunung Padang, its wisdom song, mysteriously wonderful, the time has begun, to amalgamate these golden gates of archaic understanding and technology of late, to find the truth of who we are, beings of the sky or of the sea pondering so endlessly 26-12-16

Dear Team, We had such an amazing time with you guys. We stayed five days and it’s sad that we have to leave the Bule Homestay Cianjur. We had difficulties falling asleep the first night due to all the noises from the positivities of Idul Adha. And it turned out to be such a fun night with you friendly people. We really enjoyed the hiking trip to Gunung Gede, we even managed to climb it three times!  The trip to Remote Village was amazing, the landscapes are absolutely magical and the visit to the Rice Fields and the Sugar making was so interesting. I loved the bike rides, what a fun way to see Java’s landscapes! Once I was not scared anymore. I wish the best to all of you guys, and thank you very much for everything. Keep smiling!  Zsofia and Mateusz 16-9-16

To Kus and his family. we have had a great time here in your place! It has been a real pleasure to have the oportunity to discover the wonderful area of Cianjur from the remote village from the floating village, we have been astonished with the marvelous landscapes our eyes have seen, we will never forget the green rice fields, the night camping in the lake, the swim in the morning, the chance to be the first european ladies to explore the water falls and the rides with your motorbikes. We had the time of our lives with you all guys! Now that we have eaten rice in a banana leaf as a sigu of brother hood and you have taught us how to poo in a traditional toilet, we feel that we are past of your life just the same you are past of ours. Keep on fighting for your program, you are doing things right and it is something very special for western people like us. Never give up your dreams. Best wishes. Alba, Eva Marta and Laura. kisses from Barcelona 🙂

Thank you very much for the last three days. I had a wonderful time here and friendly accomodation. walking through the rice field, visiting the floating village and the cacao plantage was so interesting. I really enjoyed spending time with you, your family and friends.I could not imagine to have a better homestay while traveling through Indonesia. I felt comfortable and save all the time. I also enjoyed that I was allowed to visit a school, it was a new experience and interesting for me, because I also want to become a teacher. For the future I wish you all the best!!! I would like to say thank you again and hopefully one day I can come back and visit you again. It was nice to meet you all and I will never forget this time here. 26-08-16

Great experience! Kus and his family were fantastic. It was our first stop on Indonesian soil. We stayed for 2 nights and it was an eye opener. We took the trip to the floating villages. The 30min ride on the motorbikes was an adventure and the view of all those floating houses was breathtaking. You should check out google maps in the evening to really understand the size of it. In the evening we enjoyed cooking together. The second day, climbing mount manangel, the rice terraces, views, waterfall and local village were astonishing.

Dear Bule Homestay Team, Thank you so much for this very nice day. We enjoyed the trip very much, when we went to the Floating Village. We could see the local fish farmers and had funny fish-spa. Later we tried Cacao beans. Thank you also to have dinner at a local Warung, it was very tasty. We will recomend this homestay to other travellers, because Kus and his brother cared about us on the trip. And of course we could learn more about Indonesian Culture. Best wishes for the future!

Dear Homestay Team! Seeing all your activities, it’s kind of sad that I only could spend 2 days with you in Cianjur. I had an awesome time and I’m thankful for the opportunity to experience local life away from main tourist attractions. The food you offered is simple, but still so delicious and amazing as the service and help of the whole team. You also take care of your guests. I wish you all the best with the program and setting up your ideas for expending the things you want to offer. Again Thanks a lot-Nuhun Lukas Austria 14-06-2016

To the great Bulehomestay team I sadly just had time to stay one night but the service was excellent. I mainly came to see Gunung Padang and I was able to do a half day trip by bike. The team is great in having a look for your needs and help to reach your next destination. Besides yummy local food and some nice jamming and singing at night a lovely spot to stay and see local live. Thanks a lot - Livia 06-05-2016

Friendly English speaking host-simple room-clean toilet-hot showers-tour service available Longer version: More than just homestay, the host Guik and his crews also offer half-day to 3-day tours. They are a bunch of adventurous people who like to explore new placed around Cianjur and include suitable ones into their tours. As a result, their tour itineraries are quite unique.

I was on a day trip with Guik as guide through the hills around Cianjur. I absolutely enjoyed not only the nature and great people we met along the journey but also the authenticity of his tour, how he explained everything about how he grew up and why this place is so special for him. I would definitely recommend a tour with him to experience the true javanese life in small villages. Jan

We have spent one month in Indonesia and we can easily say that the time we spent with Kus and his family plus the things we did with them were the highlight of our trip! Kus is a wonderfull and passionate guide. He finds places that amaze him and shares them with his guests. We went on a 3 day trek to the south of Cianjur, where we saw breathtaking views, untouched nature and encountered some of the most warmhearted people ever.The room we stayed in was basic and the facilities were clean. Kus looked after us and made sure we try all the local culinary specialties, incl his pancakes! :) If you are looking for an authentic experience of Indonesia, this is probably as good as it gets. 06-06-2015
