Ferienhaus • Pangandaran Indonesia

Imagine living in a small town surrounded by pristine beaches and nature but at the same time only a 45-min flight away from Jakarta, the center of Southeast Asian business and one of the most vibrant cities in the world! Welcome to our holiday home in Pangandaran!
A newly built home with minimalistic modern design and fully equipped interior in
a Bali-like hidden paradise, boasting a tropical climate and wonderful nature. Suitable for families, remote workers and retirees alike.
This house is newly built in 2021-2022 for us by our Slovak friend, Marek, and his Indonesian wife, Santi, in a project called "De Residence Pangandaran". This holiday home is offered for mid-term rental, but we can block any period to facilitate our home swap.
This is a large fully-equipped two-story house with 3 bedrooms. On the ground floor there are fully-equipped custom-made kitchen, a living room looking at a large terrace, and a modern bathroom with a shower and WC. The second floor has 3 bedrooms with large double beds and built-in wardrobes (1 bedroom can be changed into an office for remote workers). The balcony is accessible via the master bedroom.
The project was designed by Erik, a reputable Czech architect, who respects the local culture and follows the local climate. All rooms are furnished with sleek interior furniture and air-conditioning. Granite floors also help reduce tropical heat. Teak wood doors are helpful for noise cancellation. These materials are quality, long-lasting, and natural.
Our holiday home will be available from March 2022. We are excited to host our first PLU guests. :)
This is a gated community.
My Slovak friend Marek is living in one of the houses in the same project to assure everything is run smoothly. Our aim is to provide a harmonious community in which mid-term and long-term foreign residents can connect and blend in with the locals, both enjoying each other's presence and company, instead of the usual tourists-locals dynamics.
If you and your family are looking for exactly this cosy feeling during your stay, this is the place for you. If you want complete convenience and luxury, you only want to mind your own business, you plan to come and go and leave nothing but trash behind, we are afraid this is not the right place. Nevertheless, I'm certain that the former type describes a typical PLU member pretty well. :)
As this home is a part of the mid-term rental project, there will be staffs who can guide and help you throughout your stay. Foldable beds, iron boards and other equipment can be arranged. Extra services can be ordered at your own costs if you need anything else, which are generally very cheap.

The De Residence Pangandaran is located in a beautiful ocean-side town of Pangandaran. The town is located on the West Java, Indonesia, approximately 350 km south-east from the capital city, Jakarta. The complex itself is strategically located only 5 minutes from the main market, bus and train terminal, a modern hospital, tourist hot-spots and the wonderful Pangandaran Beach. This town is one of the most popular and attractive tourist destinations in the West Java and one of the fastest developing towns in the country.
Pangandaran is definitely an amazing place to live or holiday. 🌴😎💚
White sand beach in Pangandaran is a real paradise. Located only 10 min. from our house. How would you like to turn this piece of azure into your daily swimming spot?

Tu and George were an absolute pleasure to host during our first ever home exchange experience. As first-time home exchangers, we were a bit nervous about the process, but Tu and George made it such a wonderful experience.
They were extremely respectful and considerate of our home and belongings, and they left everything in perfect condition upon their departure. They were also great communicators throughout the entire process, and making sure that everything ran smoothly.
We feel incredibly lucky to have had such wonderful guests for our first home exchange and we would highly recommend them to any future hosts. We would love to host them again in the future.
We are grateful that Tu and George could stay in our home and take care of our pet and plants, while we were on a trip to Italy. We had a change to meet both before and after the swap which was wonderful.
They took excellent care of our flat and prepared it for our next guests, who reported that everything was tip top! Our communication was smooth and easy both before and during the exchange.
We will be happy to host them again any time and can highly recommend an exchange with this lovely couple.
Thank you Tu and George and maybe we’ll se you again one day in Copenhagen 😊
10 out of 10 points, no, 15 out of 10!
We contacted Páll when he already offered his home to someone else, but he was so kind to arrange for us to stay at his parents' home (1st surprise), plus letting us use their car (2nd surprise). We also had a chance to visit his home during our stay. As a minimalist couple, we have to say both apartments are above our expectation and need, no doubt beautiful, neat, large and warm :) While energy prices are going through the roof everywhere in the world and everyone is trying to save on heating, their homes are blessed with geothermal heating like the rest of Iceland, so our stay is very comfortable despite the temperature reaching -20 degree C sometimes (3rd surprise).
Location wise, Hafnarfjörður is conveniently located between the international airport and downtown Reykjavik (both homes' location). The Flybus service provides transportation to and from the airport, whose station is within walking distant. While it is not very central, we love how special, quiet, cute and friendly this place is. After 2 weeks staying there, we drove back to the apartment from Reykjavik without navigation.
Communication is seamless and easy, making us feel welcome and comfortable. We also appreciate their brochure with clear instructions, a long list of recommendations about what/where to do/go/eat and how to hunt for the aurora. Páll even shared with us travel típ like using coupon app, which gave us several discounts for services during our stay (4th surprise).
We can't be grateful enough. There is no better way to travel than home exchange; and Pall's family is one of the reason why we have such a great community at PLU.
Home: 10/10 ⭐️ cosy, lovely, clean, close to the beach 🏖 not far to city centre by bike, very good bikes are available for guests’ use.
Communication: 10/10 ⭐️ experienced host, very friendly and supportive.
George and I stayed at Anja’s home for nearly 2 weeks, can’t explain how grateful we are. Her family welcomed us with local beers and snack plus a HUGEEE folder/guidebook full of guides, maps and tips. They were so thoughtful to prepare even keys and tools for the bikes 🚲 Our holiday could not be so great without her suggestions throughout our stay. There is a guinea pig and many plants to take care of but detailed instructions are in the guidebook so it was easy for us to manage 😉
Luckily after the exchange we had a chance to meet up for a cosy dinner with Anja, Torben and their son Theo, it was amazing.
We are thankful for the exchange and really recommend others who visit Copenhagen to give Anja a message - you won’t be disappointed.
Hi all, we are an eco-conscious couple, low-waste followers and minimalists from Prague, Czechia. We seek joy from helping others, being productive, and good food.
George is a typical IT guy 💻 who only needs good internet to work. How lucky, he has experienced both country life and city life. Besides Czechia 🇨🇿, G has lived in Edinburgh 🏴 for 2 years and Mallorca 🇪🇸 for several months. He is super passionate about biking and water sports. With open-water diving licences he has 🤿 SCUBA dived nearly 40 times! Most importantly, G has a kind heart 💜, his elbow veins are full of scars from continuous blood donation🩸 which he has done more than a decade regardless of where he lives. Whenever there’s a problem in our building he is always the first one jumping in to solve. George dreams of relocating to a bike-friendly 🚴♂️ coastal city 🏝 in Europe 🇪🇺
I’m Tu, a real estate valuer in an international firm. With enough planning, I can travel while working remotely too. Having lived in Hanoi 🇻🇳 until 18 years old, then Prague 🇨🇿 ~10 years, Colorado 🇺🇸 ~3 months, Strasbourg 🇫🇷 ~5 months, I consider myself as a truly global citizen with a global mindset. After my quarter-life crisis several years ago, I have finally found the core values that I live by: Compassion❤️, Integrity🤩, and Making a difference👍. At the moment, striving for an eco-friendlier world 🌎 is my focus, at home, at work, and everywhere I go. 😇
There is no doubt that we will treat your home like ours, if not better. As home exchange newbies we are looking forward to learning from you and PLU community!
Tu & George
