The Neighborhood

It is a small Batak village at the beach of Lake Toba. It is quiet here. It is a place to relax or to take place in our aktivities. We can make excursions around Lake Toba and especially to the hot springs in Pangururan. The village Silimalombu was founded by Ratnas Grandfather, the king of Silimalombu 150 years ago. He settled down here, because there where a lot of strong old Mango trees. Nobody planted them. They are nature. A lot of the trees will be now 300 to 500 years old.

Getting Around

We have a direct boat going from Parapat/Ajibata direct to our house. Leaving in Silimalombu at 9.00 am and return at 1 pm (maybe later). Monday to Friday there is mostly another boat leaving in Silimalombu at 5 am and return at 10 am. 2 km away is a public bus going to Tomok, Pangururan and from there to Medan. You can rent a Motorbike (100.000 IDR) or Bicycle (30.000 IDR) at our house. You can charter a Minibus (Mitsubishi L 300) or a bigger local bus to go around Samosir.

Other Things to Note

It is more a farm and not a perfect Guesthouse. We want to make our Guest happy and we want to show our culture. You can take place in all if you want. We like some Western things, but we don´t have toilet paper, because we want to clean us with water and this makes more clean than paper. You can try it. It is easy. Later you will miss the water, of you sit on a western toilet and you don' t feel clean anymore. Also this pulp industries, they produce the Toilet paper cut down all the forest around Lake Toba. We don't want to support this. If you still need it, just bring it your self from the Mainland.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
