Stone Park Coconut cabin is located on the beach front of a quiet secluded private bay. You can go swimming in front of the cabin and there is a coral reef just minutes away. We are surrounded by natural jungle, a place to truly relax.
“Oh my goodness, where to begin?! Put it this way, if we hadn't had to get home for the kids we would still be there because why would you leave paradise unless you had to? From the moment the golden sunlight streams through your window in the morning to falling asleep listening to the cicadas and geckos (and other unidentified jungle noises) last thing at night, Stone Park casts its magic spell over you. We stayed in Coconut Cabin just a few feet from the edge of the lagoon and spent many a happy hour lazing in the hammocks listening to the waves washing on the shoreline and the monkeys calling to each other in the jungle on the island opposite. The cabin has everything you need, from comfortable beds, a fan, mosquito nets and beautiful local decor, to a compact little kitchen and basic bathroom (with random visiting fauna!). Kate and Ali live on site and are endlessly helpful; they'll introduce you to the best people for scuba diving, dolphin tours, restaurants and anything else you want to do and are always happy to answer any questions you have or just chat about the island in general. Stone Park is just far enough off the beaten track to ensure you'll have uninterrupted peace and quiet but close enough to town that you can pop out for anything you need and be back within 30 minutes. There's a great scuba school just up the road and a wonderful local seafood restaurant and you're not far from Kilometre Zero which offers the best sunsets I've ever seen. Swimming and paddle boarding in the lagoon (we took our own boards out with us) was utterly captivating - we saw turtles in the daytime and the phytoplankton lit up (bioluminescence) at night which just looked like magic. Words just do not do this place justice, it's so totally unspoiled, I hope it stays that way.”
10 minutes from Bukit Lawang by Becak or a stroll by the river. It's timelessly simple and provides an authentic traditional Indonesian experience. Set in rice fields with mountain views and a balcony with hammock to relax and get closer to nature. You will see how Indonesians live during your stay. COME AS A GUEST, LEAVE AS FAMILY! If you book your accommodation, transport and an Orangutan jungle trek with us, it will reduce your stress levels and let you make the most of your stay.
“It's hard writing a review when I feel like words can't suffice, but I'll try anyway! Aini's home is an oasis. It's only a 20-minute walk or so along the river to Bukit Lawang, but it's so peaceful on the patio watching the rice being planted and the garden slowly growing and the storms rolling in over the mountains that we didn't feel the need to make the walk often. At night, we fell asleep to a chorus of frogs and the flickering of fireflies. Our bedroom had a big, comfy bed surrounded by a mosquito net. It was one of four bedrooms surrounding the living room. We used the bathroom with the western style toilet. There are buckets for bathing and you can add hot water with the kettle (though we never fully acclimated to Indonesia's climate so the cold water was refreshing). The kitchen is always available to use, complete with a fridge, range, and toaster oven. The Friday market and an Indomaret are both in walking distance for stocking up on ingredients. You can also take in the panoramic views from hangout spots around the house, including a gazebo with a hammock and a tower upstairs. Aini is one of those rare hosts who truly makes you feel comfortable in an unfamiliar home. She was always willing show us around and answer our questions, even the difficult ones. We feel so lucky to have met her and call her our friend. Aini's friend Jed was also visiting and we loved all of our group conversations and shared meals. It felt like finding family in the middle of Sumatra! Aini helped arrange our jungle trek, and our guide Eman picked us up and dropped us off at home. We had a full day of adventure and orangutans, and there's no better place than Rumah Papa to recover after. Don't miss out on an opportunity of a lifetime - come call Rumah Papa home for a while!”

“The best place we have ever been to. The hospitality, open hearts and friendship of Uden´s family and his friends are unique. They treated us like family and we will never forget this. The house is beautiful and very cosy and has a very romantic garden, with breathtaking views of rice fields and jungle. We felt comfortable and really safe here. For us it was great that this house has an intimate atmosphere and is located in a very authentic, not touristic place but very close to Bukit Lawang and just by the jungle. We did a one-day-trek into the jungle with Uden and his assistant Mizi and this was an amazing and unforgettable experience, that we will never forget. Uden was very professional, experienced and careful in guiding the trek. We could trust him and felt very safe and in good hands. He has a huge respect for nature and you can feel that his job is his passion. We always felt safe with him and that made the trek very pleasant. Uden and Mizi were both warm-hearted and professional, when it comes to advices, trekking-tours and everything regarding personal demands. They gave us a lot of information about nature, life and Indonesian culture. Waking up and returning home we were welcomed with the most delicious food in Indonesia, prepared by Uden´s lovely and charming wife Juni. We will definitely come back here and we already miss this place and the lovely people around Uden.”
