“I rented this house for two years and made many trips there for the beauty and serenity and to get away from Jakarta”
- Mr. Elliot Yearsley, Jakarta resident
How to get there
For those coming in from overseas air port pick up can be arranged. Please contact us for more information.
For those travelling from Jakarta, the best time to leave is early in the morning. This will give you a clear run most of the way with a total drive time of around 2h and 30 minutes.
From JL Jenderal Sudirman drive to the Semanggi intersection and turn off to JL Gatot Subroto, going towards the Airport. If you are coming from the south you turn left at Semanggi and enter the toll road. Drive for a few kilometers and turn off at the Tanggerang exit turning left up along a narrow bridge.
From here you simply follow the motorway all the way to Cilegon. Follow the motorway for around one hour and take the turnoff to Anyer and Carita. At the toll gate set your trip meter to zero. From this point Rumah Joglo is almost exactly 50km. After the toll gate turn left and follow the road to a large red light intersection. Turn left and follow the road to the second red light where you turn right. Follow the road up a slight hill after which it will veer left taking you to a T-intersection. Turn right and follow the road all the way to Rumah Joglo Sambolo. The first stretch will take you through Cilegon industrial estate and after about 25km you will pass the old Dutch lighthouse. From there you have a nice scenic drive all the way through.
If you find yourself going past Lippo Catrita (a series of three storey colorful condominiums) then you have gone too far. Look for the ‘Sambolo Bungalows’ sign from which Rumah Joglo is only about 200m on the right.
Note: Along the toll road and in Cilegon you will find petrol stations. In both Anyer and Carita you can find modern mini marts.
