After 24 years, the original owner, Pak Tasrip passed away, leaving the homestay management to his son Thomas, who now runs it with his wife, Hana. Altogether the three of them have been helping tourists climb Mount Semeru for decades by providing them with beds, excellent home cooked meals, hot showers, necessities, and gear rental.

Food preparation is one of Hana’s passions and both she and Thomas speak English fluently.

The Homestay even has a large dining room, makeshift office, and an organic strawberry garden.
