HORAS is a Toba Batak word meaning WELCOME
SO HORAS !!
Horas Family Home, Exclusive & Excellent, is a holiday home situated directly on Lake Toba in Tuk Tuk, Samosir, North Sumatra, with unique views of the lake and the surrounding mountains. Activities that you can enjoy here include hiking, biking, swimming, fishing and boating. Or you can also just bask in the sun and enjoy the weather on our waterfront terrace.
According to many guests Horas Family Home has the best cuisine in Tuk Tuk, with specialties such as: The Famous Horas Family Home Fish BBQ (with or without fish), Roast Suckling Pig, Small Wild Forest Pig, Crayfish, Tilapia in all kinds of styles such as BBQ, baked, fried, stewed, sweet and sour, curry or rendang.
Of course, if desired, with or without head and tail. Naturally the Village Chicken (Ayam Kampung) is available as satay, soup, curry, rendang, drumsticks, roasted BBQ’d or whole chicken on the spit. For the record, we only cook for guests staying with us.
Horas Family Home comes with its own parking facilities, a large flower and organic vegetable garden, a fully equipped kitchen and a well-stocked fishpond.
Horas Family Home caters mainly to families with large or small children, or groups of friends. Horas Family Home can serve as an ideal base for excursions in the area but is often seen as a destination in itself, or as a retreat to simply relax and recover from jungle trekking.
The smaller guests can keep entertained by helping us feed the rabbits, fish and chickens apart from building sandcastles, dikes and catching small fish and shrimp on our own tiny sandy beach.
Activities for teenage guests include swimming, fishing, kayaking, and water skiing, to say nothing of banana boat rides and jet skiing.
For our adult guests we have a small library and TV with movie channels and international news channels like CNN, BBC and Al Jazeera just to name a few.
One point, which for some guests sometimes turns out to be very important, is that Horas Family Home is the only accommodation in Tuk Tuk that always has hot water and WIFI.
HORAS! HORAS !! HORAS !!! WELCOME TO HORAS
I like to catch my Catch of the Day in front of Horas. Do keep me company, especially in preparing for the BBQ with freshly caught Ikan Nila's (Tilapia's) with head and tail or filet, while enjoying a cold Bir Bintang or a soft drink. If you prefer swimming, sunbathing, walking or boating it is fine with us. Whatever you choose, we guarantee that the weather will be perfect.

Horas ligt op een prachtige locatie maar is eigenlijk niet geschikt voor bewoning door twee paren zoals in ons geval. De tweede slaapgelegenheid is op en soort vliering zonder privacy en zonder kastruimte. De eigenlijke slaapkamer is ingericht als een bedden pakhuis. De service was uiterst vriendelijk en competent. De maaltijden waren uitstekend. Goede internetverbinding vanaf het huis en internationale TV
We hebben zeer genoten van ons verblijf op dit eiland. De eigenaar van de woning geeft je het gevoel dat de klant koning is en regelt al je wensen.
Door de grote positieve betrokkenheid van de eigenaar, kan hij soms lang blijven hangen. De eigenaar is hier wel op aanspreekbaar.
Een heerlijk ruim, goed ingericht huis op een prachtige plek. Betoverend uitzicht op het Tobameer. Grote tuin met o.a. konijnen voor kinderen om mee te spelen en groente om te eten staat ter beschikking
