It's both funny and interesting how you imagine your travels to go and how they actually play out. I came to Cianjur to see the historical Mysterious Site, that was the plan, my destination. What i got on the top of seeing this was meeting a wonderful host with a beautiful family. His shared information about his city and country was more than I could every gather reading all the sites on the internet. Kus was patient, kind, helpful and always happy. Thank you very much for everything, but mostly for the wonderful memories you have me. Having some pictures of old rocks is one thing. I am leaving Cianjur and this special Homestay with so much more. All my best to you and your family. Maybe our paths, at some point, meet up again. Kindregards Stephen from Quebec, Canada, teacher in China 6-02-2024

At the market/ park in the evening we had as well a good time to see the local people enjoying themselves was good to see. We hope you all stay healthy and stick together as a family. Also a big thank you for the experience with the children. To see how much fun the kids was so cool to play football.

Dear Kus, Chepy, friends and family Thank you for the nice time and the beautiful hike. I was glad my condition was still ok! Unfortunately we had to change our plan a little bit because of the illness of Paul but we’re happy that we at leaste could stay two days one night. It was a good tasting all the fruits in the jungle and smelling the spices: nootmuschaat, clove and kardamon. I’m glad Chepy finally found good cocoa fruit. I hope he will get good Bonsai one time, it was fun to have diner with Muhamad too. We wish you, your friends and family a happy life and who knows, maybe our life will cross again in the future!

It’s really an honor that we are the first group of people from Thailand to use your service and stay at your place. Thank you for the warm welcome and great service. Thank you for tailoring everything to our needs despite the limited time. It was really the longest motorcycle ride in my life! However, the view of Paddy field on the way was extraordinary and The Gunung Padang Megalithic Site was memorable. It really made all the tiredness gone away. Your knowledge of the site was excellent, giving us more info about this ancient site. Thank you for the safe and considerate drive among the pouring rain and getting us the rain coat! The dinner was great. I especially enjoyed Soto Betawi very much. I wish we had more time to explore other places in Cianjur. Wish you success in your biz. Keep up the good work.

Sawasdee Kus and Bule Homestay Cianjur Team. Thank you for your great and friendly hospitality. I had a great time and to be honest, it was my first motorcycle ride to Gunung Padang. It was a little bumpier and long ride, but it was fun and exciting. Too bad it was raining, you and your friend had to ride through rain and wet dark road. And I’d like to thank you for drive safely. Next time, if I have more time. I’ll definitely visit Gunung Padang again and maybe do more hiking and visit the waterfall. I wish you great success and achieve you dream resort soon. Take care.

The trip to Mount Manangel was a very unique experience to us since we were able to swim in the waterfall and the natural infinity pool. The funny and slippery hike to peak was great and adventurous. Thank you to Chevy and Yandi for explaining and showing us the plants on todays trekking. We are very happy and grateful for our stay here with your warm-hearted family. We wish you all the best! Hopefully we can come back one time Corinna and Arthur England 06-09-2017

The time has finaly to an end. Your humble abode, and your kind ways will live in our hearts for the rest of our days. By now we’re chilling in the land under reminiscing on Indonesian tropical thunder. Ancient knowledge we gathered like students, with new found powers, like new born mutants. Gunung Padang, its wisdom sung, misteriously wonderful, the time has begun to amalgamate this 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. To give them a hint, a hunch and a clue. One can start where you thought it said blue. It in fact says ‘BULE’ To describe those in the west, this X marks the spot to the hidden chest. Aligned with the stars, like a sacred blue print the fire within can burn and here is the flint. Floyd and Katie Australia 07-04-2017

Dear Kus, team and family. Thank you for your exceptional hospitality, service, care and your big friendly smile. I have felt very well looked after all the time and very safe, (even on some of those treacherous roads on the bike) I have loved all your tours which are more than the usual tourist experience. The homestay has all the little extras that make it. Comfortable and it’s all a very affordable price. You work very hard to please your guest!

To Kus and his family. Dear Kus! We have 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 yoou all guys! Now that we have eaten rice in a Banana leaf as a brotherhood and you taught us how to poo in a traditional toilet, we feel that we are part of your life just the same you are part 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 from Barcelona. 24-09-2016

Dear Team, We had such an amazing time with you guys. We stayed five dyas 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 fositivities 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 16-09-2016

Dear Bule Homestay Team. Thank you very much for the last three days. I had a wonderful time here and friendly accommodation, walking through the rice field, visiting the Floating village and the Cocoa 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 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. 07-09-2016

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

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. Guik speaks fluent English while his crews are still trying to catch up, If you like adventure and want to try out how the locals live, Bule Homestay Cianjur is for you. Kah Hwee Singapore
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 Germany 24-12-2015
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
