We stayed for 3 nights at the Amin cottage during the Hari Raya celebration. The owner Maria is a very special lady who welcomed us like family. Fox Hill is in the middle of a peaceful countryside with views of lush green hills and rice paddies, far far away from the hustle and bustle of Pantai Cenang the main beach area. We enjoyed daily excursions with the car rented from Fox Hill - the island is not big and everything is within 30 mins driving distance. We would drive around for meals and tourism and relished coming back to the peace and calm of the property. The garden is well maintained with beautiful flowers and not so many mosquitos - we didn't get bitten at all. The pool area needs some work but is perfectly fine for a dip. The cottage is super charming and clean with nice sheets and towels. It is dark inside (which is how they are supposed to be, probably to keep cool in the heat) but there's plenty of outdoor spaces to hang out. There are a few gentle cats around.
We only took the Mangrove tour arranged by Maria but there seemed to be other activities she can arrange for guests. And she can probably recommend public beaches to go to. Or, what we did was stay at a beach resort a few days first and then relocate here for a completely different experience, which worked out really well for us.
