House & Cafe

I meet over than 2000 people and traveler from across the world through Airbnb and hosted them together with my wife and kids,

Hi I’m Bima

I travel a lot as a wedding photographer and shoot for various photo shoot in Bali, Jakarta, Hong Kong, and Maldives and one day I just told to my wife that it will be nice if we’ve done our job in photography and back home to host traveler from around the world. By 2013 we develop our first simple bed and breakfast house as a future investment of my photograph business.
