I was at J Residence with my family early 2013 for 2 nights. I have been to Kundasang few times and stayed at some of the nice 4 star accommodations. Somehow, this time around, I thought of experiencing something different with my family and we choose J Residence. No regrets, it was indeed a totally different experience and we love it very much! The room and beds were clean and comfy. We were there during low season so the promotion price is cheap and reasonable. We love the bathroom, with holes in between the roof and the wall to allow the cool air in! The wifi signal was good.The Bayu Restaurant is just nearby, within 5 minutes walk from the residence and it serves local and western menu at reasonable price. It is also nearby the entrance of Kinablau Park. The residence owner, Joshua, is very helpful and provide prompt reply via email regarding our bookings and trip questions. What we treasure most about the residence is it's quiet surrounding and the cool weather! We wish we could stay longer. I would recommend this place for those seeking comfort in nature. We will definitely come back to this place again.
