The Sabah region

Whilst there are other places in Malaysia you must visit (Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Malacca) only Kota Kinabalu offers the diversity necessary to accommodate all types of visitor and it already has the second busiest airport in Malaysia so all those people can't be wrong! We have beaches to relax on or from which to enjoy a myriad of watersports. Mountains to climb, well a mountain but it is impressive nonetheless and you don't have to climb it just visit the park and enjoy the walks and flora you might even be lucky enough to see the giant Rafflesia flower on the way up. You can see orangutans and proboscis monkeys, take a train up the winding Padas Gorge to Tenom or white water raft down the gorge. Visit some impressive temples and mosques or local markets. Dine at one of the many seafood restaurants in town or wander away from the town centre to discover some remarkably cheap and excellent food. Take a sunset cruise and perhaps watch the sea eagles catching their evening meal. Away from the state capital there are the rainforest reserves of Danum Valley and Maliau, birds nest collecting at Kunak, the world's fifth best diving destination Sipadan Island, Sepilok Orangutan sanctuary.There's just so much to see and do!

Kota Kinabalu

Within the city area itself food is the main attraction but there is easy access to the islands of the Tungku Abdul Rahman Marine Park where you can swim, snorkel and dive or just relax on the beach. Parasailing, sunset cruises, deep water fishing trips can all be arranged. Visit the chinese temples on Tuaran Road or the City or State mosques. A short taxi ride will take you to the Mari-Mari Cultural Village for a glimpse of how some of our indigenous tribes live or to a Crocodile Farm, an Orchid Farm.

Shopping is a growing pass time as the number of malls increases every year.

"Perfect holiday location with so much to do and such friendly, helpful hosts."

The service we experienced was superb. Theresa and Nigel collected us from the airport after 10pm and took us to the apartment, which was only a short drive away. As we were travelling with our young daughters this was so much appreciated and was just the start of the great service they offered. They were very knowledgeable about the area and activities that we might like to do and the apartment was filled with information leaflets and a great 'guest comment book' that we found so useful. A mobile phone was provided that included contact numbers for taxis - just brilliant. As we arrived so late at night, some basic supplies had been provided, ie cereal, milk, bread, butter, coke, lemonade, bottled water, tea, coffee etc. This was great and tied us over until we went shopping the following morning.

The apartment itself was clean and tidy. There was shower gel, shampoo and conditioner in each bathroom although as I didn't expect this we brought our own anyway. The washing machine was a great asset as we only packed light so to be able to put on a quick wash was brilliant; it also saved me having to do a huge amount of 'holiday' washing when I got home!! There were 2 swimming pools; the smaller one could be seen from the apartment and a bigger one was a short walk away in another block. Both pools were clean and not over-crowded, in fact most of the time we had it to ourselves! The kids loved the pools and we used them daily.

The location was perfect as it was so close to great shopping facilities including supermarket, clothes stores, shoe shops, book stores, sports shops, souvenir shops, food courts and cafes etc. Even the children loved the shopping as there was something for everyone. There is a great selection of waterfront restaurants closeby including a fantastic Thai restaurant that became our favourite.

It was easy to get around as taxis were plentiful. If we hadn't pre-arranged anything, it was easy and safe enough to get a taxi from out at the front of Marina Court and only cost 10RM (around £2) for the journey to Jesselton Point where we often took a boat to one of the islands for a day to enjoy the beach and snorkelling. This wasn't the only thing to do and during our stay and we also enjoyed a trip to the orangutan rehab centre at the Rasa Ria Resort, an afternoon at the crocodile farm (scary animals!), two trips to the Sabah Indoor Climbing Centre (this is great for anyone aged 6 and over), the Mari Mari Cultural Tour and a private chartered 5-island boat trip with Borneo Boats & Beaches - highly recommended.

At the end of our holiday, none of us wanted to leave and my oldest daughter, aged 9, decided she wants to live there! Thanks so much to Theresa and Nigel for making our stay so easy and relaxed.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are very glad that you and your family had a lovely holiday. Most of our guests are surprise by how much there is to see and do here. We would love to see you again when you come back to visit our highest mountain or try white water rafting when the girls are a bit older!!
Kind Regards

Thank you so much for your taking time to write a lovely review for us. We are glad you had a lovely visit and hope the rest of your holiday went well too. Sorry to hear about the car park incident. Thank you for giving us the heads up and we will inform other guests about it but have also spoken to the management as well since it was the other party that was at fault.

"Comfortable apartment"

Good apartment in central location. Very handy that Theresa and Nigel let us have use of a mobile phone to call taxis etc. KK is very humid so the washing machine was very useful.

Thank you for your kind review. We are glad that you had a good visit despite the humidity.
