The building/construction of Rumah Kita started in 1998 and after rather big problems, such as the replacement of the roof, the house was completely finished in 2002. Also a house was built , on site, for the landlord.  Building of the pool (12 x 6 mtr.) started in June 2004 and was finished in September. After that a simple garage was constructed and some walls to guarantee full privacy. In 2007 the separate guesthouse was finished. and in 2013 another separate guesthouse with 2 guestrooms has been  realised

Accommodating guests started in 2005. Just with the idea to provide a relaxed, private and  comfortable accommodation for a reasonable price. It is the intention to give travelers a resting point during their trip through Java. But also to create a base from where the Nat. Parks can be visited. Most tours do skip this part of East Java, which really is a pity, because nature is beautiful and also easy accessible. And last but not least to provide local people with a means of income on the longer term. (Unemployment is very high and wages are very low in this area of East Java)

The pool is situated on the left of the villa and to the right side of the one of the Guesthouses and it is fully invisible from the road in the front. Via a Balinese entry the garden can be entered from the front without having to go through the villa. To the back is an unobstructed view on the rice fields and the Gunung Raung. on the terrace of the pool are of course sun chairs, normal chairs and a bench. A big tree and 2 parasols give enough shade if necessary. The pool is about 20 meter from the villa as well as the guesthouse.




Room and Bathroom guesthouse

The set - up of Rumah Kita is quite different from a normal Guesthouse/mini hotel. The owner is Stap-Inn Travel and they organise holiday trips through Indonesia. They also rent out the rooms. The staff of Rumah Kita of course get a basic salary but all the profit , beside the income from the rooms, is for the staff. They all run their own business with a guaranteed income. Rumah Kita facilitates them with equipment etc. and the profit they make is for themselves.
So the staff for housekeeping do the laundry service. The washing machine is owned by Rumah Kita and the profit they make is for them.
The same with the restaurant : 5 girls run the restaurant/guesthouse. They buy themselves the ingredients and drinks and the profit they make is for them
The maintenance man rent out some bikes and the securiuty makes beautiful walks up the mountain Putri Gunung, in the surrounding area's or into the forest.
And all  trips and transport are done by one person (tourdesk) who does this in cooperation with local guides and drivers working for Rumah Kita..
Rumah Kita and Stap - Inn Travel do the promotion but all these activities are a business of the staff.
For training purposes also girls go regularly to Bali and stay in a star hotel. They come with new idea's and if possible these idea's are implemented. And all is coordinated by 2 ladies/girls who work in the restaurant/guesthouse.  

To be able to coordinate and control all,  the sales are all done by Stap - Inn Travel through internet or local
