We arrived late at the accommodation and Gudrun was waiting up for us. First we stayed in the Forest house. A two bedroom house. The traditional Malaysian house was open to the elements allowing the warm tropical breeze to float through. At the rear of the house was an amazing rubber plantation. Forward of the house was sunset valley rice paddy fields. We were surrounded by rocky jungle mountains. We later moved to the Field house which was more spacious with studio king bed. Both houses were more than memorable with the best ventilation we didn't even think about aircon. It was back to nature at its best along with some modern touches.
One afternoon we stood under the eaves of the hous with the warm tropical rain pouring down and drenching us and giving us a real rainwater shower. It was a little slice of paradise.
We walked to several street cafes for meals and felt safe and secure at all times. The locals were friendly and helpful with two tourists who could not speak a word of Malay.
Gudren and David were perfect hosts, helpful with great local knowledge and hints.
Highly recommended for people who want to get away from the hectic drudge of everyday life. Swap it for a heavenly escape.
