We stayed for three nights at Timothys place. We would have stayed two, but because the traintickets were sold out (get them 48 hours before you need them!) we needed another night. That was no problem at all and Timothy helped with everything we asked. Before we arrived we also could tekst Timothy how to go from Jakarta and he helped us with a lot of tips.
The bedroom was big and had a nice big comfortable bed. The bathroom was fine, hot water, and there were towels and clean water (to drink) all the time.
Even though it was a bit far from the centre, it wasn't hard to get to the centre with the cheap minibus. Also getting back by taxi felt very safe. Everybody in Bandung and the neighbourhood would try to help you gind your way. We would recommend this place especially when you have just some more time to see also the life in the ring of the centre and learn a lot about the city, Timothy knows a lot.
We loved staying with Tim! His house is lovely and he is a great host. Very helpful and friendly :)
Breakfast was great and our kids enjoyed the swimming pool!
Very happy with our experience at Tim's place!
Prior to arriving in Bandung & dealing with Tim for our stay was fuss-free and he gave clear and precise instructions/directions to his house. The house is gorgeous! Big, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed ourselves in Bandung and the hosts also shared very useful tips on way-finding and places to visit. Very helpful and resourceful. We love to come back and stay with Tim sometime soon and we'll definitely bring the children along this time! - Yusri & Tuty
Response from Timothy:
Thanks for the great review. You're welcome back with the kids!
We spend 4 days at this beautiful and spacious house and had a good time here.
Timothy is a great host, he gave us many advices where to go, helped us with transportation and even organized us a car with a driver for a day.
The house was clean and you have a great view from the veranda over the city.
The area is very quiet but there are many shops and eating places a 5min walk away. We definitely recommend this place!
We stayed with Timothy for two nights. Excellent stay with his family! We felt straight "at home" and his little son was all over us within the first minute after arrival.
Tim and Lukman helped us bigtime to arrange the taxi for our sightseeing Bandung the next day. Same for finding alternative ways to get to Yogya because of the train crash that occurred on the track. We finally managed to catch a flight thanks to Lukman. Great hospitality, Bintang available! Good breakfast and room facility, we enjoyed our stay! Thanks Timothy & Lukman!
My and my wife was on a vacation for our colleagues wedding invitation on last Sunday. Then we decided to stay at Timothy's based on Airbnb. We saw this place looks clean and comfy for one night stay with a very affordable price.
At the first day, we arrived a bit late since an awsome traffice on a long weekend. We have't met Timothy yet that day because we go straight to the bed after a long journey. But we met his friend Lukman who opened the door for us. This place looks exactly like we were expected. It was a clean big house with a comfy bed, hospitalize host, and great ambience for a great sleep.
In the morning, we've got served by a good breakfast by Lukman. A home made sandwich with an english tea served beside the pool. Feels like we live in a 5 star hotel, not in a rent house.
After we attended the wedding, we planned to enjoy Bandung a bit more. And since it's a long weekend, traffic in Bandung was really "awesome". So we decided to spent one more night to stay.
At the 2nd night, we met Timothy who just arrived from his holiday abroad with his 3 y/o son Banyu. And we find a really nice host that really welcome to us. He treated us like his own family so made us felt like home. And let us to cook our favourite breakfast in his kitchen.
We supposed to live at day 3, but since we felt comfort with th situation, we decided to spent one more night again :) We explored more places in Bandung based on Timothy's recommendation.
The we paid through Airbnb for night #3. But suddenly we decided to come home early because the traffic was really bad to come back to Jakarta. So we came back to the house to picked up our stuff. Somehowe, we forgot to brought the key Timothy's has provided. We felt really bad to disturb them (Timothy, Lukman, and Banyu), but we don't have a choice beside to call, kncok, and bell the host. It's 11.30 at night.
But Lukman was very helpful by opened the gate for us. So we can can picked up our stuff and straight back to Jakarta :)
Thank you Timothy, Lukman, and Banyu. We definitely will come back to your place if we has a chance to Bandung again. And we will recommend you to all of our networks :)
In summary, this place was really recommended for you guys who want to spent nights in Bandung wether for a business trip, or a fun long holiday. With their services in a very affordable price, you can use your trip budget to explore the city more.
Response from Timothy:
Thanks for the detailed and positive review. It was a pleasure having you and hope to meet you again in the future.
As this is my first Airbnb experience, except hosting. I would say that this service exceeds my service a lot.
This is a real Airbnb, as breakfast is provided. Most important i got excellent coffe in the morning, which is important for a Norwegian.
Tims castle in Bandung make you have privacy if you want, however it is also connected with the rest of the house were breakfast was served.Tim and his friend are easy going. Water and towels are easy available. Ice cold beer with glasses from freezer are also available to be bough at a reasonable price.
The location is situated between the center city and the hills. Location is therefore perfect for most tourists, including me that had business both places.
We arrived toTimothy's home when he was away, but we had a good time there. His house is really big and clean. There are a lot of kinds musical inctruments and interesting things. Our room was clean and quiet, so we had a good sleep in there.
So we were disappointed that we didn't meet Timothy, but we had met with Lukman, who helped us to find a way to the Tangkuban Prahu, and he said us how to buy a train ticket to the Jogja. Also we had a long conversation with him about everything - from politics to movies.
We rally had a good time in this house, and i hope when we'll travell to Bandung again we meet wit you, Timothy!
We stayed two nights with Timothy, and enjoyed Bandung. Timothy's tips for Spa and Volcano walk proved excellent, and from the house we were able to organize a driver to take us to Bogor via the mountain road. Thanks for that!
The house itself is big, comfortable, but in an area a bit far from town, but very easy to reach with a taxi, and close to the Dago area of Bandung.
Thanks Timothy for the stay!
Me and my two friends stayed in Timothy's house for three nights. The house might seem to be a bit far from the city center. However it turned out to be really pleasant and quiet; away from the noisy traffic jam of Bandung. We had spacious rooms and lovely breakfast in the morning. But in addition to that we were hosted by truly wonderful people who helped us way beyond one would expect. Lukman and Timothy recommended us locations in Bandung, helped us to book a driver for the day trips and the bus tickets back to the airport . We absolutely recommend to stay in that place and when we come to Bandung again, we hope to stay in Timothy's place again.
Five stars from us and thank you guys for making our vacation to be such a joy!

All the way from Indonesia. Educated, polite and nice people, traveling in Iceland for the first time. I really enjoyed inviting them into my home, talking to them over a cup of coffie. Told them some things about Iceland and learned something about Indonesia. They made themselves at home and I welcome them back again next time they come to Iceland. It was a pleasure to host Timothy, the little boy Banyu, and Lukman at my home. When I go to Indonesia I hope I can stay with my new friends. I recommend this good people to other hosts.
It was a pleasure to host Timothy and his friend, they were very clean and we really enjoyed the time, while they were staying here with us! We warmly recommend to other hosts.
Timothy and his two boys were very nice guests, they were all very polite and neat and I had a good time watching cartoons with his younger son.
They were all easy to communicate with and I enjoyed having them here.
I would recommend them as guests to anyone
Tim, his partner, their delightful little boy and his friends were excellent and thoughtful guests. Recommended.
We really enjoyed Timothy and his family's stay with us, his 2 year old son Banyu was our smallest guest so far and perhaps the most talented, it was a pleasure to have them around.
Really enjoyed Timothy and his son staying. Such a lovely well behaved boy. Very considerate and brought a lovely atmosphere to house.
Timothy and his family were great guests. They made themselves at home, made tea, chilled out in the sun room. Their son was happy to play with toys from our own son and grandsons. We had some good chats. We would happily reccomend them as guests.
Timothyy and his partner and delightful wee son, Banyu, were guests here for just one night..It was a pleasure to meet them all.. they fitted right in straight away...Tim and I had a number of pleasant (email hidden)nyu (email hidden) wire, interested in everything around him,...he was particularly fascinated by the man who came to power-hose the exterior of the house in preparation for painting! Within seconds, Banyu set about wiping the external surface of the house with a kitchen cloth, to help out!..He and his Dad & partner were a joy to host.
Timothy was very nice and very clean. Welcome every time.
Timothy arrived in our apartment around 10:30 at night from Bandung with his friend, where he work as a teacher in senior high school. He went the following morning to the French Embassy to renew his passport. We had a nice and interesting conversation before they went to bed. They had left the apartment the next morning before we woke up. Would be happy to host him next time he goes to Jakarta.
