My 2nd time visit to Lake Toba, and of cause 2nd time stay with Horas again!

A group, 6 of us have so much fun in Lake Toba ( Kayak; Free of charge from Horas. Many thanks!, star searching in front of Horas, great food and cozy room).

I should mention the kindness of everyone from Horas family. They take care us from the moment i arrive Medan airport until i leaving back to Malaysia. We feel so pleasant and grateful to stayed with Horas family for my Lake Toba trip.

I will definitely come back to you for my 3rd visit to Lake toba and Horas family!

A wonderful place to stay in Tuk Tuk. A group of 7 of us stayed at Horas Family Home for one night and absolutely loved it. Berend and his staff were delightful, and did all they could to make our trip pleasant. The home itself was large and comfortable, and a welcome change from typical hotel rooms. The location at the edge of the lake is great, and we even got to use their boat and kayak. The food was really good and fresh, and everyone was really helpful and accommodating with all our requests. As Berend said, even if your requests are impossible, we'll get them done. And they sure did!

Our only regret was we couldn't stay here longer. Will definitely be going there again in the future. This is surely the place to stay when you're visiting Lake Toba! Thank you Berend and your team for making our stay a really pleasant one!

Room Tip: The Horas Family Home is a great choice as you get an unobstructed view of the lake.

Our family of 5 adults had stayed in Horas Indah in April 2014 but due to time constrain we are only able to put a night there. We are very happy with the services provided as there is even people helping us to take our luggage to the ferry at the jetty and from the ferry to the accommodation. We also ate our dinner and breakfast there, the dishes (bbq chicken and fish, nasi goreng and mee goreng) are very delicious and the vegetables are very fresh. There is also a garden where you get to pluck whatever that you feel like eating and we managed to get passion fruit and strawberries. We also booked a speed boat trip to ambarita and tomok, and the ride too was pleasant where we get to see the scenery of lake toba. Great hospitality from the owners (Mr Berend and wife)

We spend an excellent four nights at Horas family home. Kids (3 and 8 year old) had a wonderful time fishing, kayaking, playing in sand, taking a dip in the lake, feeding rabbits & plucking vegetables and fruits. Our 3 year old didn't want to take the flight back home ! Food was excellent. All our requests were attended to promptly by Mr Berend & Ms Mian. Mr Berend took the effort to advice us on sight seeing and our way back to airport with some sightseeing on the way. It was a very relaxing stay with everything taken care of. We would definitely look to visit again.

My family of 5 with my sister in law family, total 8 persons. Stayed at Horas Family Home from 20/3 to 23/3/14. Mr Berend arranged a mini bus which fetched us from the new Medan airport. The journey was 4 hours to parapet jetty. It was raining very heavily before we reached tuk tuk, Mr Berend sent his team to deliver umbrellas & carry our luggages to HFH, it was only less than a 5 mins walk-we reached there at night. Mr Berend told us for the past few weeks they couldn't see beyond 2 metres of the lake view, but the rain was so great just to get rid of the haze. We ate 3 dinners & 1 breakfast there. They serve big portions and were so generous. All the food they served were so delicious. The fishes & chicken were awesomely fresh, they grow organic vegetables & fruits too.
The 5 months old puppy Jackson was adorable, all of us loved being with him. The rabbits & chickens were all lovely. Hmm, Mr Berend even taught us how to fish in his fish pond, we had so much fun & we even kayak around the lake.
We all enjoyed the clean & beautiful front lake view villa which can slept 8 of us, Mr Berend was kind & generous enough to offer us another villa behind our villa without any costs. Wow. We were so well taken care by Mr Berend & his wife Mian, Mian also an excellent cook, especially the BBQ fish, which came with satay, the home made peanuts sauce was tasty, yummy crayfish, Mr Berend taught us how to debone the fishes, chicken was well BBQ to the perfect timing. There were so much food that we can't finish them.
My husband forgot to bring his asthma inhaler, Mian sent someone to buy & got back the inhaler which we are grateful for.
Our flight was 11.45 am, Mr Berend helped us to charter a ferry at 5 am & arrange 2 cars to send us directly to the new Medan airport. We reached there in 3 hrs time, Mr Berend, Mian, Jackson & all his team woke up at 4am to send us off.
We truly appreciate the hospitable, warm & smiles everyone had. We had such a wonderful time at Horas Family Home. The best & excellent place to stay & relax.

Room Tip: Choose the front lake view
