The SpaceOur resort condo is not for everyone ... If you are looking for nightlife, music and other similar form of entertainment, you would hate our place. The main themes of this resort are piece, quiet, solitude, unspoiled beaches and tropical relaxation. If you want to spend a week or a few days on the beach in comfort and safety, don't look any further. You are likely to have the entire pool area and the endless stretch of wide beach to yourself, at worst you have to share with a handful of other guests. Our condo has been designed, furnished and equipped to accommodate a family of four comfortably, but the king bed and the two singles will be similarly comfortable for a couple and two friends. Needless to say, it is also an ideal destination for a couple looking for solitude without friends or family around. Guest AccessYou will have the entire 927 sq.ft (~86 sq.m) for yourself, your family or friends. We do use the condo frequently and thus have equipped it with high quality furnishing, modern kitchen appliances and soft textiles, and you will be able to enjoy these all. There is a TV and a DVD player, although we firmly believe that there are much better ways to spend time there than watching the news or TV shows. Guests are given an internet dongle when they check in, and it is also possible to purchase a local SIM card with data package for the duration of their stay in about two minutes at the airport. Mobile internet, however, is very slow in the area. The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering. There is a hotel 2 km away along the beach with several bars and restaurants (free shuttle is available). After many years of neglect (and bed reviews), the hotel has upgraded its restaurants and now we are happy to recommend these for our guests. Olives is a trendy Italian restaurant, Noble House is the home of Cantonese delicacies, Malay, Indonesian and Thai dishes are served at Kingfisher, general international fare is served at Penyu, and there is the laid-back Sunset Bar for burgers and pizza right on the beach front. For those who want to self cater, there is a large supermarket about 15 minutes from the condo where you can by all your groceries. Our local management team provides free shuttles to this supermarket twice a day (at 9 am and at 3 pm) for your convenience. If you have a rental car, it's even easier. However, please bear in mind that if you arrive late at night you won't be able to buy food that day. There is a 24-hour convenience store at the airport where you can get your drinks and other basic items, but their food selection is quite limited. To get back to the supermarket in the morning after your arrival, you will need a taxi or your own car. There is a small convenience store 200 meters from our condo with some basic items. The hotel nearby also has a gym, a top class spa, tennis and squash courts, water sports (kayaks, sail boats, etc.). Some of these involve a charge but are all accessible for guest of our condo. Further afield but still within an hour's drive are amazing spots of Sabah's eco wonderland. Our friendly receptionists can arrange a car and driver at short notice, although renting a car for day trips is a better option. We can get you good rates through a local contact. Interaction with GuestsThere is a reception at the resort where the attendants will help you with the arrival formalities. They will give you the keys, show you around, help you arrange tours or transportation, etc. Otherwise from that moment on you are on your own, completely free to use the condo without any interference from us. All we ask is that you treat it with care, just as you would treat your own home. We love the place a lot and would hate to deal with any damage caused by careless or irresponsible behavior. The NeighborhoodOn one side of the 6-km long peninsula is perhaps the most beautiful beach in Asia. The other side is a quiet lagoon that has a water park (entrance fee) with boat rental, water slide and other entertainment. You can rent bicycles at the reception center and explore the area on two wheels. The state of Sabah is home to more than 1,500 species of orchids, the fat-nosed proboscis monkeys, huge sea turtles and the largest flower on earth, the Rafflesia arnoldii, and our condo offer easy access to all these. Through our reception office you can arrange snorkeling, diving or mountain climbing activities, hikes in the tropical rainforest, and boat tours in the hidden waterways of the lowlands. Getting AroundThere is no public transport in our area. Depending on how you want to spend your time, you may or may not need a car. If you are after a relaxing beach holiday with an occasional run along the shore or a bit of tennis or gym work-out, then you won't need a car. A quick taxi ride from the airport at the start of your holiday and another at the end is all the transport you need. If you wish to explore the eco attractions of Sabah further afield, then renting a car is a good option. There are several local operators that offer good vehicles at about 60% of what you would pay at the more established international car rental companies. We can provide you with contact details. Of course, you can always just arrange a taxi through the reception office. Other Things to NotePlease note that we prefer guests who want to rent the condo for at least 3 night. Occasionally we consider shorter rentals, so do get in touch with us if you plan to stay only a couple of days in the area.

            This beautifully situated apartment built in 2009 is nestled within Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Borneo. The area is known for it's amazing rainforests and home to the highest mountain in S. E. Asia and the largest flowers in the world. Sabah itself, with its unique heritage, cultural richness, distinct variety of seafood provides a perfect haven for local delights. Located about 45 minutes from the airport on it's own amazingly serene shared beach the apartment literally offers a getaway from it all! Onsite shared swimming pool and lovely gardens. At the main resort next door you have a choice of six restaurants. A fabulous class golf course and Borneo Spa, tennis, squash, gym. Great for exploring, resting after climbing Mount Kinabalu, diving or just plain old reading a book or should I say kindle. A welcome pack can be provided by our onsite representative on your arrival for an additional fee. For additional cleaning services they can also be provided at a nominal cost. Children above two years old using existing bedding please enquire as reduced rates may apply. Karambunai is located about 25-30 KM from the main city, set in a picturesque natural landscape offering remarkable serenity. The property itself is located within a resort known as Nexus Resort Karambunai. The property used to be on a sub-lease to the main resort but is now back in private ownership. If you plan well and it is a short trip it is possible to stock the apartment and simply have a relaxing few days or simply eat in the main resort which is about a 1km stroll down the beach and just have breakfast and lunch at your apartment. Whilst a car isn't essential it is a borderline decision. If you simply want a relaxing few days and have a small family or prefer something larger than a standard suite this works. But if you are there for say a week or two you may feel a little isolated or simply fancy getting out to see some of the wider area. We can recommend local car hire who will assist in helping you find the property etc.

Other Things to Notewe live in secoundary jungle, there are bugs,mosquitoes and all kinds of crawlies that wont hurt you.our sleeping area is netted, and mosquito proofed tested and authenicated! .....we do suggest bringing mosquito repellant , which are usually only pesky around dawn and dusk, or periodic wet/dry/wet cycles when they breed up.if your planning a walk sturdy shoes, long light clothing and a hat is suggested too. in a rural environment we also experience periodic random power outages.we have backup lighting for this, and hope to improve our solar system in the future. it rains almost every day, usually in the evenings between 3-7pm.nights are cool and (URL HIDDEN) actually gets cold from around 10pm, the chilly wind follows the valley down from mount kinabalu, the fierce and majestic one that sabah is best known for. please let us know if you would like us to provide a pizza package for your dinner.mimimal 6 persons per order.we make our own dough and cook in our own five foot wide pizza oven...we dont serve pork products. your rate includes a light continental breakfast, toast, fruit, tea and coffee.if you would like a pancake breakfast package please let us know. we do stock drinks and snacks, but please remember we welcome you to bring your own supplies and make full use of our kitchen which has full kitchenwares, utensils and cutlery for ten people. downstairs we have 8 bunk beds, and a double fold out bed sofa.we prefer to have a maximum of ten guests, please let us know if your group is larger than this. there is a semi open shower and toilet (squat) block attached to the downstairs area.while private the seperate cubicles gives you an open view of the hill above the house.The shower here is cold water from the rain water tank above. 20mtrs away from the guesthouse is another block with a toilet (western) and shower (seperate rooms) . this shower is fully enclosed and has a hot water pump system. we have a large bbq for your use, theres a small charge for charcoal but if you bring your own thats no problem.wood is a nightmare to start, most big supermarkets sell bbq charcoal,3 bags is ideal. please let us know if you would like to go on walks around the area.there are animals around, such a deer,slow loris,wild cats and possibly tarsiers.we have seen all these creatures not far from our house, and the tarsier has been listed as its been seen from a very reliable source! as we are an orchard you can expect fruit.normally fruiting season is around july/august so you can expect to enjoy durian,rambutan,tarap and cempadak, to name a few, from our place.we have alot of pineapples which fruit as they please, so if you can beat the squirrels to them they are juicy and ohh so sweet! we normally enjoy from the markets banana, watermelon,papaya,mango and other local fruits that are on our table year round. our place is half way between mount kinabalu national park and kota kinabalu city. in kiulu valley there are companys that provide half day rafting packages in the river below us.the river below us is about an hours hike straight down through a rough jungle track from our place.if your interested in rafting we can help you arrange, the pickup point will be from tamparuli. theres some great mountain bike options closeby our place.the trails closest us are quite challenging due to the steep terrain, but well worth it for awesome views and pretty jungle.easier options are around the flat lands of tamparuli and tuaran district.if you are interested in this we can help you arrange with our prefered operators.
