Firstly, I would like to Thank Joshua, for being such a sweetheart! He assist us on how to choose/to check a good rental car, since we girls are really clueless how to go about it!
Due to come unforeseen circumstances, we need to make last minute arrangement such as change of rooms, without hesitation, he tried his best to accommodate to our needs, without charging us a penalty!
We felt in debts with him, thus we invited him to our BBQ at J residence, sadly, due to work schedule, he couldn’t attend.
We deeply appreciate your assistance Joshua! J Residence is fortunate having you!
For those with own rental vehicles like us, do not worry about the parking, there’s enuff lots for at least 4 cars, however, the slopes at the entrance its rather steep, good if you are driving auto car, or not, your car need to have enough power to accelerate up. Its really steep and no kidding.
We stayed at the villa and room 3A and 3B. We are really impressed, the villa is so spacious, can at least sleep another 15persons!! Kidding. So we brought our dvd to watch in the living room, dine at our dining table, and cooks in the kitchen, I must say its really well-equipped kitchen! As for the rooms, beds are comfy, and most importantly, the toilet is very very clean, and there’s hot shower! Its really cold at night, so you really need that.
As for room 3A and 3B, there’s a mini kitchen, so its also good for us, and the common area(the balcony), we stayed up and chat till morning!
Overall the experience in J Residence, way exceeded our expectation. Its my second trip to Mt Kinabalu, so trust me, you can never find such a lovely place like home. Esp those that are particular with bathroom, this is definitely a right choice!
