I was a bit difficult to find the guesthouse but we had only a map of Malaysia with us in our rental car. On the date of arrival it was already night and heavily raining, so it was on top difficult to find the guesthouse. As we arrived we had a very nice and warm welcome of May and Sylvester.... More

We reached the guest house past midnight but they still welcomed us warmly. We felt a bit guilty cause from their attire, we can see that they are preparing to sleep. Nonetheless, they still welcomed us and treat us so nice! We stayed in the Carribean room and Japanese room. The design are awesome! Seriously! The toilet are also very... More
