The location of the house is superb, centrally located within close walking distance of Bundaran HI roundabout but in a quiet street. The room was very clean and well equipped. Communication with the host was great from the start and he was very helpful and responsive to my questions and needs. I enjoyed my stay and regret that I didn't have more time to spend at the house.

Michael's house is situated in Menteng area, the neighbourhood is quiet, safe and very green. Plaza Indonesia is in walking distance (6 min) with a lot of opportunities for (food) shopping. Restaurants and delicious streetfood are just round the corner. The house is spacious, clean and beautifully decorated with paintings and artifacts. The pool is an absolute plus. It is a nice place to come back to after being exposed to lively Jakarta the whole day. The room (with a very nice bathroom attached to it) is very spacious, pleasant and clean with everything you need - the bed is super comfy. The wifi works perfectly well! Michael is a very welcoming host and a reliable correspondent, willing to provide useful tips and helpful advice on life in Jakarta. I can highly recommend to anyone on business in Jakarta to stay here.

Michael hosted me while I was on a work trip in Jakarta. Amazing location in Menteng - one of the richer neighbourhoods in Jakarta and extremely central. The bed was great, there's a pool and I had full rein of the kitchen - though I did not take advantage. Shower very nice as well. Micheal was out of town most of the time but was very easy to communicate with when in town and away. The place was great value if you are working in Jakarta. The best parts would be the location (central, safe, near nice cafes) and the pool. Would recommend for anyone on a business trip in Jakarta. Great value and character.

My stay at Mr Morrissey's house was a real pleasure. His house is beautiful and very comfortable, very well located and really charming. The pool was a delight, especially in the morning. I was warmly welcomed by his friend Mas Havis, who has been great to me, helping me whenever I needed something and also telling me a lot about Jakarta and Indonesia, it was a real pleasure to meet him ! I had all the facilities I needed : having my clothes washed, Wifi in the house, a place to breathe, I was perfect. I really recommend staying here, it's really top-notch service and an insight on the best of what Jakarta can offer.

Michael got in touch with me via email and SMS and explained exactly what to do at the airport, which taxi to take, and how to get to his house. Very precisely done. Michael is a wonderful host who explains everything and has a lot of patience. His house is beautiful and quiet at a wonderful and central location.
