Hi Rosangela,

Congrats on going to East Timor, it is a great place with lovely people.  I just spent two years there - volunteering and then working.  I rented a few places in that time in Dili and rent ranged from $350-600/month.  It can take a while to find a place but it will happen.

Hello Fida,

This thread has been inactive since 2012, so i will be closing it down. I suggest you drop an advert in the Housing in the East Timor section of the website so that you may get some offers.

All the very best,
