“Arriving at Gabriella's place, you are greeted by lush trimmed trees and plants. There is a friendly sign hanging on Malaka wooden statues, saying "Welcome to Kopa Guesthouse". Not only did the small sign help us find the place, but it also gave us a preview of the amazing hospitality we received here. Gabriella was not in town but her father and cousin were. Pak Domi, her father, makes you feel at home right away. He's friendly and helpful, and knows a lot about different local customs of around the region. Our 5-year-old son and we listened with much excitement as he explained (also always with great excitement) the things he learned and collected from other surrounding islands. So that was great. As for the room, we found it clean and had everything we needed plus nice little touches. Juna, the woman who helps clean the house, is also really sweet and friendly. This is so far one of the nicest finds in my experience with this platform! Also, Gabriella is quick to respond to requests/questions and is always polite in her answers! Thanks Kopa Guesthouse!”

“I was the first visitor to Theo and Lily's BnB, who it seems until now have used their extra room for personal visitors, so are quite accustomed to having guests. They live in a spacious, airy Indonesian-style home in the middle of their vegetable and fruit garden somewhat on the edge of town. Although being the provincial capital and also quite attractive, Kupang is somewhat off the beaten path and tourism infrastructure (especially for non-Indonesians) is weak, so it is almost necessary to stay in a BnB like this with very helpful owners who are attentive to your needs (I doubt if the best hotels in town could be so helpful!). In my case, this meant driving me to wherever I needed to go, and even a little sightseeing (I stayed during heavy rain season, so motorcycle rental was not an option), including helping me get to a hard-to-find location I had business with. I learned that the people of Kupang are in general extremely hospitable but perhaps Theo and Lily are exceptionally so. Theo is vegetarian while Lily is not, so each meal you share with them you will always have a choice. Theo still works, while Lily designs hats (women's and men's) using traditional Timorese textiles at home. If you don't speak Bahasa Indonesia at all, communication will be slow, with their daughter facilitating via smart phone. Even if you know just a little Bahasa however (like me), you will have great fun communicating (Lily is especially effusive and a great communicator!). I only stayed two nights, and in the rain at that, but they made me feel very much at home and they will likely do the same for you. Your room is simple with a very spacious bathroom attached. However, the shower is cold water only (quite bearable in the tropical climate), so if you insist on hot shower, you should inquire first. If this is your first visit to Kupang or NTT, they will make sure it won't be your last!”
