Mid to Long-Term Home Rentals
Hidup is an online booking platform for expats, global firms and locals to secure mid to long-term home rentals in Indonesia’s major cities.
Hidup, meaning ‘life/live’ in Bahasa Indonesian gets its name from our company’s mission to ‘make your life and living easier’. We focus on longer term accommodation in Indonesia and we source quality rental properties to suit all budgets and take the hassle out of finding ‘your home away from home’.
We established hidup to connect landlords with high quality tenants searching for apartments, houses, resort-style villas and studios for mid to long-term rent in Indonesian cities of Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya, Bali and others.
Our goal is to help landlords and property managers to generate more income from their properties through fewer vacancies by making the rental process more efficient and secure for both the tenant and the landlord.
Each property is personally inspected, and our team prepares professional photos, floor plan, HD video tour and records a detailed home and location description written from the perspective of local. This allows tenants to virtually inspect the property anytime you wish in addition to reviewing local attractions and the landlord’s rules.
Virtual inspections eliminate language barriers between landlords and foreign tenants as well as the time, expenses and frustrations associated with inspections such as sitting in traffic between inspections, getting lost and agents not turning on time. Our platform allows tenants to secure their new home in advance so there is no need to find temporary accommodation while you spend an exhausting couple of weeks trying to attend inspections.

Advantages for Landlords
High Quality Tenants
We connect landlords with better qualified tenants than any property platform in Indonesia. We work closely with international tourism groups, universities and corporate relocation firms with thousands of high quality tenants from all over the world looking for mid to long-term rental properties in Indonesia. It’s within these strong community connections that we can attract our target market of professionals travelling for work, local and international university students and mature travellers.
We provide the highest quality photographs, video tours, and floor plans compared to any other platform in Indonesia. We pay for all these professional marketing materials for every property on our platform, so there is no cost to the landlord or property manager.
Secure Income and Less Vacancies
Short term holiday rentals offer no secure rental return and expose homes to a high volume of different guests resulting in a greater risk of property damage. Our long-term rental model provides secure long-term leases with high quality, screened tenants. Tenants can pay a security deposit and must sign a lease agreement which outlines the rules and forms a legal binding contract.
Full Control and Reporting
Receive detailed reports through our user dashboard outlaying your property portfolio performance, vacancy rates and income generated. You have full control over the rent payments, property rules, lease duration and payment method that each tenant must comply with prior to moving into the property.
We provide a guarantee to our landlord that help protect them from unpaid rent and property damage. Refer to I am a Landlord for mmore information.
Advantages for Tenants
Save Time & Money
Our platform removes the need for timely property inspections and phone calls by providing financial security to tenants moving from overseas and far away cities. We do this by transferring the first month’s rent and security deposit from the tenant to the landlord/property manager only once the tenant has arrived in the city and moved into the property. This eliminates the risk of them transferring their security deposit and rental payment to a ‘fake’ landlord for a listing that doesn’t exist. They have ‘peace of mind’ knowing that they will be safely settled into their new home before their payment is transferred to the landlord by hidup.co.id.
Each property is personally inspected, and our team prepares professional photos, floor plan, HD video tour and records a detailed home and location description written from the perspective of local. This allows you to virtually inspect the property anytime you wish in addition to reviewing local attractions and the landlord’s rules. We guarantee that what you see in the tour is what you get when you arrive. Virtual inspections eliminate language barriers, sitting in traffic, or the frustration of getting lost or agents not turning up at time (or at all). Our platform allows you to secure your property before you arrive in the city so there is no need to find temporary accommodation while you spend an exhausting couple of weeks trying to attend inspections.
The first month’s rent is paid directly to Hidup before you arrive to the property and the money is released to the landlord 48 hours after your move in date. This provides security and fraud protection as the tenant is not transferring money to a landlord overseas or to someone they do not know.
Booking mid to long-term accommodation online can be a big commitment, so protection against fraud and a guarantee that the property will be in the same or better condition as advertised. If it is not the same as shown in our property listings, we will find alternative accommodation for you.
