Just returned from our wonderful, relaxing stay in Olivia's bungalow with my wife and 2 young boys. Having a car provided with Garmin is a big plus to go to places of interest, all within an hour's reach.
The Kebun is an easy 45 mins drive from the city with very orderly traffic compared to other parts of Malaysia. Our homely bungalow is always lavishly stock with snacks and drinks and they even provide a freshly homemade loaf of bread and different local fruits from the farm everyday. The owners, Adrian and his wife, Olivia, are very detailed to their guests needs and very accommodative to our further requests. Adrian also brings us to various nice eating and sightseeing places whenever he has some free time.
Kuching is a nice stress free city which I would consider for retirement and standards like health care are rather high with relatively affordable costs. In short, my family truly enjoyed our stay with the Kebun and will surely be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Kebun was started 12 years ago as our plan for a retirement home in Sarawak, East Malaysia. Adrian’s Bungalow was put up after being disassembled from the movie set of The Sleeping Dictionery. Olivia’s was only put up only two years later when it was taken out of storage which was also disassembled from the same movie set. The farmstay side of the business only started in April 2010 after much encouragement from friends.The Kebun is not just accommodation, it is an experience. If you would like to get a taste for the basics of a simple lifestyle in a beautiful tropical setting, which is of fresh gardens of organic herbs & vegetables, picking your own tropical fruits, dining on fresh farm raised livestock, fishing for your own freshwater fish & simple accommodation with little impact to the environment, or even to help out with feeding all of the animals at the end of the day’s activities and again in the morning, then your are up for a unique Sarawakian adventure at The Kebun. ... more less
