Hi, Just found out today that we'll be moving to Jakarta with my husbands work. We are planning on taking our beloved family dog with us (boxer x lab). Can anyone please offer some advice re: pet friendly rentals. We'd be looking for a 2 - 3 bedroom apartment/villa/townhouse/house within a good expat community. Please can you give me any advice, ideas, pricing etc of same. Where do we find such a property? I hope it's not all doom & gloom. Am really excited about this new chapter/adventure but am worried about not being able to take our dog :( Thanking you in advance Tammy aka 'Head is still spinning'

Hi Tamblin,

I would advise you to get in touch with a real estate agent as this will be the fastest way to find what you are looking for in an unfamiliar market. 

For general information about the property market and popular expat areas you can do some background reading on our Accommodation in Jakarta page.

Hope that will give you some ideas at least
