“Exotic getaway in the Bornean Rainforest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2009

Situated in what felt like the middle of nowhere, this homestay is definitely for you if you are looking for an exotic retreat away from the hustle & bustle of the city. A small place with four guestrooms furnished with double / bunker beds, very simple and clean. Common shower & toilet. Everything is kept basic yet my husband and I found it to be sufficient.
Owners Lars & Liza are very accommodating. They share their homestay with their cats. Follow Liza "jungle shopping" & learn a thing or two about the vegetation in the jungle. Most of the ingredients she uses for her cooking are found right outside her doorstep. She is an amazing cook, very exotic food.
Some activities include jungle trekking, exploring a bat cave and taking a dip in the river to cool-off, or simply relaxing on the terrace in the evening when it is cooler and just listening to the calming sounds of nature.
Highly recommended for a short relaxing trip to recharge your batteries.
