Couples or honeymooners will enjoy the privacy as the suite is a floor on its own!

There is a small little 'kitchenette' that is equipped with a microwave, toaster, electric kettle and a mini fridge.
Interaction with Guests
We won't be present but we are but a short 10 minute drive away should there be any emergencies. We have a property manager who is reachable during office hours as well.
You will be provided with her number and as well as my personal number for any emergencies.
Our property is located in the middle of city centre. That means literally everything interesting is located within minutes of walking distance: the Sarawak museums, waterfront, India St, China Town (Carpenter St) -- rows and rows of shops!
To reach our property, you can tell the airport taxi driver to drop off near the Central Police Station near Padang Merdeka and you will be able to see the green four storey shophouse called Lane Building from there. The price of the taxi should be RM26.00 from the airport.
There are plenty of taxis from our property, and parking should be fairly accessible nearby in the mall or public parking spaces.
If you are heading to Bako, taxis, buses and minivans are available
We can also point you to to private tours, car/bicycle rentals and laundry services.
To be precise, we are located behind the Central Police Station next to Plaza Merdeka.

Thank you Reuben for making us feel like locals in Kuching. We had a wonderful time staying in this lovely apartment right in the centre of the city. Everything was within walking distance and the buses to Wetlands N.P. and Damai Beach were right at our doorstep.
The apartment was clean and all advertised services provided. Plus to be able to sit up & watch a few movies at night was a lovely bonus.
It was so good to come "home" and relax in this space especially after a yummy meal at an awesome little local place recommended by Reuben................the best host ever!
The place was definitely alot better than we expected from the photos. I love the decor! Location is great, shopping mall next door, bus links close by, pretty safe at night, close by to the open air market. Reuben was very helpful and came around straight away to fix the TV and was easily contactable when we needed help! Amazing host!
We had a fantastic time at Reuben's flat. Found in the heart of Kuching City centre (20 mins from the airport), the loft is spacious and comfortable. It's really close to Merdeka Plaza, Old Market and the Waterfront.
The facilities are fantastic - movies to watch on our chilled evenings; a fast wifi hotspot which we carried around the city to always have Internet access; really good aircon and fans.
The best part of the experience was Reuben himself. He's a fantastic host with great knowledge of Kuching. We cannot thank him enough for showing us around town - massage spots, food stalls, national parks and even where to potentially pick up Xiaomi phones!
Not to mention, he's an Aikido master! He's made our stay in Kuching and we would definitely stay here again.
Reuben is a great host, very responsive and easy going. We were a party of 3 and the loft was a great place from which to start getting to know the city. It is as described, clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.
The location is really perfect...it's easy to walk to everything, and the apartment itself was really nice and spacious and had everything that the listing promises.
Reuben was quite possibly the most helpful and hospitable host ever. He answered all of our questions--above and beyond the "call of duty"-- and was so ready and eager to assist. We really appreciated that so much.
There was a little noise from the street later in the night but the majority of the day and evenings, it was quite peaceful. You have total privacy in the building itself, and the views are great, too!
We would definitely recommend the place and stay there again.
The flat was perfect for a short stay in Kuching. Reuben was very helpful with information and advice. The bed is very comfortable and the location was great! Thanks again Reuben.
Friendly host who picked us up from the airport on a Sunday evening.
Apartment was very comfortable and safe.
