Welcome to the Big Guesthouse (managed by Borneo Orchard House); your rustic holiday home on the hills of Tamparuli, surrounded by secondary rainforest & durian orchard with scenic views overlooking the misty Kiulu valley.

Enjoy our land "Go-un" (means mist in Dusun language) Simple open design of the Big Guesthouse brings in the ambiance, sounds & coolness of the surrounding jungle. It could get chilly on rainy nights! Our place is half way between KK city & Kundasang.

The space
We have chosen to live and share our place as it is an authentic rural Sabah setting. It's very quiet at night here, no city lights and noisy distractions. Our rural setting helps you get close to nature, experience outdoor bathroom or take a dip in the spring water plunge pool.

Where you’ll be

Tamparuli, Sabah, Malaysia

Our nearest neighbor is down the hill around 2km away and only see distant house lights in Kiulu valley across from us. Tamparuli is the nearest town, the Kiulu river winds through it with a pretty suspension bridge across it. Look closely and you can actually see our property in the hills above if you stand in the middle of the bridge. Wednesday is market day at Tamparuli, it is a colourful scene with locals selling everything and anything....well worth an early morning visit.

The closest village Kampung Kiwoi is a small hamlet spread down the side of the hills. Most villagers are rubber tappers, although the younger generation work in the city. Further up the road from us is Kampung Lingga, which has a beautiful primary school perched high on the hill with commanding views. The road then winds down another 5km or so to a dead end at the river, Kampung Bambangan is here which is smaller still, but very prettily wedged between the hills, streams and the river.
