Interaction with Guests
Depending on our schedules, we can either interact a lot with guests or very little. It depends on what the guests want; however, my son is very curious and friendly with guests.

Other Things to Note
We started off as guests but after staying with lovely people in Jakarta, decided to try hosting ourselves. We have met some wonderful people over the years both as guests and hosts, some of whom have become good friends, most of whom have brought something memorable surprises into our lives.
- No smoking inside the house. If you wish to smoke, you may do so outside and on one of the 4 terraces.
- Small children are very welcome, however, please be careful around the pool and stairs. Both are gated for extra security.
- As I have a very curious small boy, please be careful what you leave laying around.
Timothy's is a very warm and friendly Canadian living in Bandung with one cute kid, Banyu. His friend (Lukman) and maid at house (Yati) were very helpful. We like everything in the house: the bed room is big, pool terrace is awesome with table that is good for working, many relaxing chair, second floor terrace with big open air area is great for relaxing and chatting as well. There are still some area in the house we haven't yet tried because of limited time we are here. I really enjoyed being here and definitely will be my top choice to stay at Bandung.
Me and my friends really enjoyed our stay on Timothy's place. The moment we stay it gives a welcoming home experience, it is really comfortable. Tim's friend, Lukman, is very friendly and helpful. He recommends a lot of good places to us. His son is very cute as well. The breakfast is awesome especially their fried rice. I would recommend this place to whoever want to visit Bandung. Keep it up.
This was my first time to Indonesia and using Airbnb, I must say the highlight of my trip wasn't visiting the volcano or tea plantations but staying at Timothy's place. The house is clean, big, yet cozy, I felt like home the moment I stepped inside. His partner, his son and the helper are really friendly. There are lots of vendors near the house selling nice street food, also ATM machines, a supermarket and convenient stores. Timothy helped me to arrange for a private driver who could speak English and gave me some really useful tips. There are nice books and a lovely cat too! I traveled alone but I felt very warm welcomed and safe in his house. I wish I could stay for longer! Thank you so much Timothy :D
Me and my 10 month old son had a great time staying in this big villa in Bandung! 2 days weren't enough... The spacious house has all the comfort you need and more. We felt very welcome. Spent quite some time at the upperterrace in the evenings just dreaming away with a great view. Getting there and getting around is very easy. Best is to take the lightblue angkot (small minivan) downtown (it goes all the way to the trainstation too). It is almost as fast as a taxi when there are trafficjams and it costs about 50 eurocents per person. And also you get to dip into local life a bit more. Just say 'kiri' when jou want to hop off and pay the driver.
Next time in Bandung we will definitely visit again. Thank you Timothy, Banju, Lukman and Bu Jati!!!
Although timothys big inviting house is a 20 minutes drive from centre, we learned, that this fact is a kind of luck. The city is horrible noisy and at timothys you can relax. (think about earplugs because of the nearby mosque ;-))
Timothy and Lukman are friendly, helpful and unobtrusive hosts. Any question we could ask and got answer in several languages. The best was a trip in the woods they planned for themselves and invited us to join. Really good experience.
Our 3 year old daughter had much fun with Tims son and the pool.
Thank you very much, we recommend to stay at timothys when visiting Bandung
Tim and his assistant, Lukman, were very kind, helpful and fast to response. The room is lovely with quiet neighborhood. I was staying with my two daughters of 5 and 3 yo, they are especially fond of the play room.
