We arrive late in the night but the staff was friendly and welcoming although it was very late.
My advice not to go with late bus because you will be arriving every late and the taxi will charge you almost double as i am been told.
We slept soundly till quite late morning. In the morning then we knew how the guesthouse looks like :-) it was nice, clean a place just like home. Where we stay now is at the 1st floor, there is living room are, internet, reading are and the more interesting for me is the balcony outside where you can seat and relax with your coffee in the morning while enjoying the rising sun. And now the owner (Rose) told us that the 2nd floor Lot A is under renovation and should be complete in few days time. We stay for 2 nights and join their tour to Kinabatangan for 3D2N, then stay another 1 nights before heading to Kuala Lumpur for our flight.
Sandakan Mainland Tours & Travel is belong to the same owner. They offer us the Kinabetengan package and we are really happy with the package. In Kinabetengan we saw many kinds of wild animal such as the orang uten with baby, elephants, crocodile, proboscis monkey, birds and few more. Their guide is knowledgeable, food a very good, rooms a cozy and the staff was really nice. Thanks to Rose and all the staff of Rose Guesthouse and Sandakan Mainland Tours & Travel that make our holiday full of memories.

Thank you so much for your comment and we work hard to make sure everybody are happy while staying at my guesthouse all though its not easy to please everybody with different character. Both of you have a very good character and really are traveler and really understand what you pay what you get and not everybody know that. I hope someday we meet again.
