The Space

The flat is located on the riverbank and nicely decorated with traditional ornaments. You can enjoy the touch of Sarawak as you spend time here. Please note that the price is for each room and you may have to share the common space with other guests if there are any during your stay.

Guest Access

You can go anywhere in town on foot. A few mins walk to the bus stop to Bako National Park and to the boat pier for a Malay Kampung on the other side of the river (the boat costs just 1MYR) . Within 10-15 mins walk, you will get the best baozi in town at 52 Jln. Padungan. 10-15 mins walk to the owner’s restaurant. There are also some good restaurants nearby for vegetarian Chinese and Indian food etc. If you are visiting in July or August, you will have a chance to visit the Kuching food festival in this neighborhood.

Interaction with Guests

Depends on guests' request. The owner lives upstairs and will always be happy to initiate you into the real Sarawak culture.

The Neighborhood

A river view, constantly blowing brisk wind and quiet neighborhood are the best things about this flat.

Getting Around

There is a public bus stop around the corner but you can easily access anywhere in town on foot. Just for your info: taxi normally costs 26 MYR to/from the airport and 33 MYR to/from the bus terminal.

Other Things to Note

Barry, the owner is a well-rounded hospitable Hakka Chinese descendant who really enjoys meeting people and looking after them. He is a Sarawakian chef, culinary instructor and a manager of the restaurant.
