Imah Guru

The Imah Guru is a one bedroom residence, built approximately 60 years ago in Wonosari, Central Java.  It features a clean, A frame roofline that we complemented with large glass panels laid into the trusswork, in order to allow a maximum amount of natural light into the living area.  Situated along the ridge of a former farming plot, we did not disturb any of the original soil contour in re-siting this house, which affords you a fantastic view from inside the building, from its entrance porch, as well as from the washbasin and restroom in the rear.  The king size bed is positioned to allow for a full morning viewing of Mount Gede & Panggerano, using just a turn of the head.  One of our most romantic rooms, children, if applicable and independent enough, can be bunked up in an adjacent leuit, approximately 40 square meters of natural light, well crafted front entrance door, teak & glass.

Please see our farm map for its location on the farm.

It features a beautiful simply carved entryway, glass panels in the trusswork for natural light, a view of Gunung Gede visible from the pillows of your bed, and an outdoor bath wrapped around a tea tree. Also Solar powered, like all of our outbuildings.

A seat with a view. The first guest restroom we made, design made easier by its placement on the edge of an old farming terrace. We don't disturb the contour of the land unless absolutely necessary, in this case it helps you see while you do.
