Experience living in the traditional house (it's called Rumah Gadang in Minang's language) in kampong of Kotomarapak in Bukittinggi. It's a wooden house originally built in 1918, yet has modern facilities such as bathroom with hot water and wifi.
Rumah Gadang Nantigo is most probably the first authentic Minangkabau traditional house with modern facilities you can get in West Sumatera.
Interaction with guests
Anytime when our guest is in a free time, we will accompany them to talk and they are free to ask anything about the house, the culture or else.
Other things to note
The room is small because we did not change anything on our vintage room. We are using traditional mattress which is a kapok mattress, covered with silk organic (tencel) sheet.
We appreciate if our guests respect and follow the culture and value of Minangkabau by dressed up properly, not drink alcohol, and not having sexual activity in our house (particularly for couple who are not legally married)
I'm a simple person who wants to fill in my life with something good for me and people around me. I love my family most, like do traveling to enjoy beautiful nature around. I love sunrise more than sunset.
I like doing my traveling to get know the place I visit, its culture and food. My favorite place I visited is South Korea as I experienced living in homestay in traditional house. I do it without using travel agent so I can stay in my favorite place as long as I want.
Rumah Gadang Nantigo might not be my main house as I base in Jakarta. But, I'll try myself to be in Bukittinggi whenever my guest are visiting because I like making friends.
My motto is: Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, today is a gift. This makes me thankful and feel grateful for everything I have now.
