We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Borneo Seahare Guesthouse, we felt welcome from the moment we walked through the door. Friendly and thoughtful staff help to create a homely environment where everyone feels comfortable. Overall an excellent stay, we couldn't ask for more. Rooms are very clean and comfortable, also great kitchen and living facilities. The staff know the area very well and are more than happy to help with anything. Highly recommend this guesthouse. Thank you for a brilliant stay!

Hi guys!

Thanks a lot for your awesome review. We had a great laugh with you and everyone else that was here at the same time, and we're really pleased you enjoyed the time too.

I hope you have a good time on the rest of your adventure, and hopefully you can make it back to Kuching at some point in the future.

All the best guys! :)

Very hospitable and friendly. Gave all the help and information I needed and even lent me a backpack to use as I didn't have one.

Good conversations. Always someone in the communal area to talk to. They'll give plenty of ideas of things to do.

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality! We loved staying with y'all and appreciate all you offered for such a reasonable price. Great location and accommodations. Greg and Amy will be a force to be reckoned with in all of Kuching once the word gets out about this wonderful place. Have a map(mapquest?) handy to let the taxi know where you want to go. It can be hard to find but well worth it. We hope to make it back someday and no doubt will be staying here again!

Dear lovinglifeColorado,

Thanks very much for that lovely review - it means a lot. It was really nice having you guys here, just a shame you couldn't stay a bit longer.

Hopefully we will see you here again, or who knows - perhaps we will come and stay in your Guesthouse in Colorado! ;)

Wishing you all the best,
Greg & Co.

I have been in the Kuching area for a bit, but this guesthouse beats all the ones that I have been to before. It feels like being home, with very friendly and helpful hosts. Thank you for having me as guest!

We wish you had found us earlier as well!

It was sad to see you go earlier today, and we really enjoyed going out with you last night. It sounds like you have some amazing travels planned out, and we all really hope you enjoy yourself!

Hopefully we will see you again! :)

Got picked up at the airport and Greg and Amy have facilitated a perfect week in Kuching for our travels. We had the double room which was lovely and clean with a proper bedroom feel rather than just a white box room. We all went on trips to various places around kuching with them which would have been a lot more difficult without the car! It's really like you've gone to visit them as old friends and we had a fantastic time!
