i love this website!
Spent two days here and loved the atmosphere, art, food, views and company. Thanks Tine and Stephen.
Hello to anybody, of course I will repeat some comment that you already read or you will read in future but I need to give the feeling that we get when we stop here after a mistake in airport ... we spent few day's here in a quiet and perfect atmosphere with a friendly owner, and a perfect cooker (both with his wife !).
We met some nic epeople around there and just hope that this place will continued to be the Highland place of Kelabits for a long time...
thank's to you Stephen and Tine for your hospitality !
I have tried for two weeks to establish a contact with them, but I have got any reply. Yet I use this address: email@example.com
Have you any other means of contact or another mail, please?
Please let me contact Stephen and Tineand tell them contact you asap.
Thank you for your patience!

I have forwarded your messages to Stephen and Tine.
I am sorry that you have been out of touch of them. The internet in Bario is still not good, and they have only limited time to access their email. But they do read emails. I hope you'll have another chance to come and visit them! They have a little boy now.
am interested in a visit
Please contact Stephen directly at
What about internet connection? Do you have WiFi? If not, shall I buy a SIM card in Miri and activate some data plan?
There is wifi in Bario Airport. Normally visitors expect quiet vacations in Bario, not requiring wifi during their stay.
If you want to use your mobile phone, we recommend Celcom or Maxis. It is safe to avoid Digi.
Just thinking about nature and all around you , let's your phone and you r computer at home , enjoyed this incredible place !

Thanks for clarification. I'm not going to blame anyone for absent WiFi, it's just a matter of how much time I can spend there as I need to read an answer some emails once in a while. I do know how to relax and enjoy nature, don't you worry about that Eric

Your website is simple but with a nice design. header scenery you post gives the impression of comfort and peace for your website's visitors. I am so there is inspiration.
Thank you for the information, hopefully useful to us all ..

Been there for a one night stay after finishing our archaeology fieldwork in Pa Lungan. I loved the atmosphere, the paintings and the view. It is a heartwarming place. Will never forget the moment I spend my time over there. Stephen & Tine are lovely peoples and little Noah is so cute. Thanks for the great hospitality. Hoping to visit Bario again and hoping to buy one of the paintings too! :)

Thank you for contacting, and we sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.
The email address remains the same, however the internet and phone accesses up in Bario are not consistent at this moment.
We will directly email you on behalf of Stephen later and sort out your reservation.
I appreciate your patience.
I have tried to book via email but I am not getting any response. We arrive tomorrow 4 pax :-)
We apologize for the inconvenience caused.
I will convey your message to Bario. Stephen and Tine will contact you shortly.
Thanks for your patience!
Hello, we have the same Problem - two E-Mails and two phone calls without response - it is for August, but we would like to book the flights.
Is there an indicaton, when Internet and phones will work again?
We sincerely apologize for this issue. Connectivity in Bario are quite horrible these days. We are trying to reach Bario but we too are having difficulty getting through to them.
Either we or Stephen (Bario) will contact you as soon as we manage to talk to him. Thank you for your patience!!
Am interested to go Bario and try to ask info of the homestay. I did message and sent email to Mr Stephen / Tine. Can you please help me to inform Mr. Stehen / Tine for reply me all related info of the homestay.
Thank you for contacting me.
I’ll inform Stephen about your messages. Please give him a bit of time to get back to you.
I apologize for the inconvenience caused.
I am waiting to hearing forward from Mr. Stephen.
You're most welcome.
Unfortunately he is away from Bario at this moment.
I’ve informed Stephen about your inquiry. He should be replying to you shortly.
Good day Admin,
I heard they're not around by the moment.. By the way, is it the homestay will close for long since they're not around? until next month?
I'm sorry to hear that Stephen and Tine are not around when you want to make a visit.
I'm just a web admin for this site, and not really in a position to communicate about homestay management. What I heard is that they are currently out of country and not yet sure about their return date. If neither of them is around, the homestay cannot be operated. Sorry about this inconvenience!
