Hello! After a long break from hosting, here we are again! Omah Jegok is a home for you who wish to make your stay in town more meaningful by sharing your love in your spare time to help the animals in Yogyakarta as a volunteer for Animal Friends Jogja (AFJ) :) and/or giving donation to support AFJ with what you've paid for. AFJ is a grassroots, non-profit, volunteer-based animal protection group founded in 2010, solely funded from private donations & our own fundraising efforts.
There're slight changes of the appearance of the space, we will update and add new photos as soon as possible :)
A Queen size bed, spacey enough for 2 persons.
The homy accomodation is in an enviromental retreat, in natural surroundings supporting the vital work of Animal Friends Jogja (AFJ). Animal-friendly guests, volunteers, visiting artists, who are traveling to Jogja and looking for a homy-friendly-tranquil lodge instead of a basic hotel room are welcome.
Our dawgz-stylee accommodation is located around 8 km to the north of Bantul City and around 2 km to the south of the famous Malioboro Street, in a setting of a riverbank, right before the meeting point of two running rivers at the end of the road. It's a hidden sanctuary in the southern part of Jogja, but only minutes away by motorbike or push bike to both traditional and contemporary art scenes and Prawirotaman tourism areas. You'll be neighbored with a living-legend painter; Djoko Pekik.
You'll be spoiled with a lot more birds chirping, frogs singing, cats meowing, gamelan & dangdut sound, dogs barking (of course), kids playing in the river, and me yelling to the wildlife hunter wannabes than the annoying noise of the traffic.
For you who enjoy stage-musical-theatrical art, 5 mins-ride further to the west will take you to Padepokan Seni Bagong Kussudiardja. You crave for nature tourism? No worries, there are many options and they are not going anywhere too far.
The D.I.Y. is in your blood? Find Survive Garage, a grass root visual art community runs by our friend Bayu. You can also visit Needle N' Bitch, a local collective initiative focusing on gender, sexuality, and land rights issues where you can involve, participate, and initiate projects according to you skill and interest :) In their house project, you can access their DIY sewing and screenprinting studio, library, and garden.
Fulfill your needs for the best damn thing under your skin: it's a pleasure to direct you to our talented tattoo artist friends for the everlasting tattoo project you've been dreaming of at reasonable price.
Hello you all contemporary photographers! Let's hang out with the MES Boyz at MES56!
Because giving is not just making a donation but it's about making a difference, you can spend time volunteering at Animal Friends Jogja! From cleaning, grooming, walking the dogs or just cuddling the furry friends rescued by AFJ, you can just take a small walk to the centre and volunteer there :)

The village where Omah Jegok is located is nearby Kasongan Pottery Village. It offers lot of choices for visitors.
