The place is definitely the best place to stay in Dili, not only because Dilis other accommodation are not particularly great or affordable, but this place has culture and style and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting.

Casa do Sandalo is a great guest house, located in a top location. I Ivanildo is also a great host, always willing to help and to make his guests feel like at home. The complimentary laundry service, fruits and water were also great! Thanks a lot for the pleasant stay!

Welcome home! Such a wonderful stay with a wonderful host! Easily the most hospitable host I've had with many Airbnb stays. The room is in a rustic 1950s Portuguese style villa within easy walking distance to most of Dili - 4 blocks to the beach, 2 blocks to a small grocery store, many cafes and restaurants within a 10 minute walk. A car and driver was arranged for easy pick-up and drop off at the airport. We were there over Valentine's Day and Iván provided a lovely bottle of wine, chocolates, and a rose for us to celebrate. He is truly a tremendous host and my only regret is that we didn't tap into his extensive knowledge of the area when planning our travels. I would definitely recommend staying here if you want to feel at home.

Ivanildo's place is a real gem. The room was big, with all the amenities of a large hotel. The location is wonderful and the service was impeccable. The little things added up. I would stay here again and highly recommend this bnb. It started with being picked up at the airport and being offered a cold bottle of water. Ivanildo's home is gracious and the fountain in the courtyard was a soothing feature. The beautiful garden and ethnic furnishings were very pleasing. The house is secure and the location safe. I was able to book a great tour at a nearby backpacking lodge. Otherwise Ivanildo was able to suggest wonderful outings and restaurants. He had maps and guides. Dili was safe and pleasant to walk around. I really enjoyed all the organic fruit and locally grown coffee. What are you waiting a trip here and enjoy a stay at Ivanildo's place.
