Your home amongst the rice fields.
Located in the unique village of Tembi south of Jogjakarta city, Yabbiekayu has been carefully crafted to provide you with the perfect hideaway with all the benefits of a communal homestay. A place to meet like-minded people and relax into village life, it’s also your base to experience the amazing art, culture and sites of Jogja.
It’s our dream for Yabbiekayu to be small, friendly and adaptable to your needs as an independent traveller. We can help design a program of diverse activities and encounters, from creative crafts to bike rides and permaculture tours. We’ll also ensure you have a more authentic experience of world class attractions such as Borobudur and Prambanan, by putting you in touch with exceptional local guides and the people who live there.
Our hand-crafted accommodation, a fusion of local architecture and eco-design, is made from local and recycled materials and has been designed with the environment and your comfort in mind. Enjoy the view from the deck of your bungalow or grab a map and explore on one of our bikes or motorbikes.
Yabbiekayu is the perfect vantage point to observe the centuries-old traditions of rice-farming, stroll through a traditional Javanese village, and gain an intimate insight into local culture and day-to-day life. Enjoy a chat with our staff – they’ll share their vast local knowledge, connecting you to Jogja old and new, including favourite hang-outs, alternative sightseeing tours and delicious traditional and international foods!
The Yabbiekayu team are excited to welcome every guest as a part of our family.
