About this listing

This place is very close to Kota Kinabalu's attraction. You will be only minutes drive away from our famous Gaya Street, Tanjung Aru beach, and for foodies: Damai, Likas and Lido!

*I'm joining Sabah Adventure Challenge 2016. Any fellow SACers?

The space

You will have your own king size bed to use and your own bathroom. You won't feel cramped down like in some hotels.

Guest access

You get to use the kitchen and washing machine.

Also there is a shared swimming pool in the apartment if you just want to dip yourself in, a gym if you want to get some workout done, a basketball court and a tennis court (sorry but I don't have any tennis racquets ).

If I am free I can also give you a ride to any place, but of course you would need to pay for the fuel :)

Interaction with guests

I am very happy to talk and introduce you to local sights and places, but I also understand that some people cherish their privacy and i usually would just leave you be unless you want me to help.

Other things to note

You will sometimes be sharing the house with my siblings who are staying with me. They might be shy but they are very willing to help you with any questions around the house.

House Rules

This is a strict no smoking and no pets house. Also please take off your footwear before getting into the house. Remember to wash your feet to if you felt that they are dirty from all day walking.

DO NOT lock your room when you leave the room.

It's also nice if you can lower your voice during the night just so that my neighbours can get their old man sleep.

I do not charge any cleaning fee (that's why it's cheap!). Please do keep it as clean as possible so future guests can enjoy the low price too.

Lastly, I really hope you can tell me straightaway if there is any problem so I can help you fix them and enjoy your stay here!

Check In
Jack's place was comfortable and safe, and relatively easy to use Uber or Grab for getting around Kota Kinabalu. It is in a residential area, and there are a couple of good local restaurants within walking distance where we enjoyed tasty food. The small market nearby was also a good place to pick up fresh fruit and basic necessities.

Jack and his siblings are wondeful hosts! The communication was always fast and he could give a lot of useful tips on what to do or eat :) The room is very spacious and clean with a nice comfortable bed and of course a clean private bath room. It is located in a safe appartment area including a swimming pool. There is a shop and a few restaurants (e.g. for breakfast) just around the corner. Using a cab or Grab the airport, the city center and most sights can be reached in a few minutes.

Jack's place is fab, it's close to the bus stop into town (round the corner in front of the school) so is a 5 minute bus ride in. Jack was great host, constantly helpful and giving us great local food tips! His siblings were also the sweetest and very helpful whenever Jack wasn't around. There are a couple of great local cheap food places but we got a bus or grab into town most evenings for dinner. The room was exactly as stated and you wouldn't find a bed that size in a city centre hotel/hostel! Being able to use the complex swimming was a real bonus! We would definitely stay here again if we ever come back to KK! Thanks Jack!
