I love my J. Residence experience.
We were a group of 16 adults. We booked the Villa for the 3 couples, while the rest stayed in unit 5A, 3A and 3B. The Villa has a very spacious living hall and dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary utensils, pots and pans, a rice cooker, a microwave, a refrigerator, a 2-hole gas stove etc. We bought a lot of local fresh vegetables and cooked in the villa. At House 3, there is also a dining table, a gas stove, a sink and a kettle. There are BBQ pits at common area and at House 3 too.
The service was good and the workers are very friendly and helpful. We managed to get some cooking oil and seasoning sauces from them for our cooking purposes. Their service was very prompt too when we provided feedback.
We enjoyed the fact that we are extremely close to nature. House 3 and House 5 have great view of the hills and villages. Most of us woke up early in the morning for the sunrise, and for some tranquil moment. The room has huge glass door so you can even enjoy the greenery even lying on your bed.

J Residence was built in the year 2010 and our lodge are partially hidden by trees and plants from the main road. Our lodge overlook the Bundu Tuhan dwelling & farming community while the back is decorated with rows of tall matured pine trees. Temperature here ranges from 19°C to 17°C at night. Truly a great place to seek refuge from the hot equatorial climate of the other major cities of Sabah. ... more less
