Our stay at KuraKura Homestay was the highlight of our 4 weeks holidays in Malaysia. We stayed 2 nights ( 3 days) with our 2 adult sons and enjoyed every minute. Lars picked us up at our hotel in Kuching and drove us to the market to do some shopping. The homestay can only be reached by boat and 2 boats were waiting for us. As the waterlevel was very low we had to walk sometimes while Lars towed the boat further.
The homestay is simple but very clean. There are 2 double rooms and 2 singles and a shared toilet and shared shower which probably nobody will use as taking a bath in the river is a fantastic experience. The toilet is the cleanest one I have seen in Asia and shows that Liza and Lars have lived in Norway.
My eldest son and I went jungle trekking with Lars while my wife and youngest son went jungle-shopping with Liza. Picking up wild plants in the jungle which are used for dinner. The jungle trekking was fantastic. The tracks are made by Lars and sometimes you have to wade through the water. Lars is Norwegin and Liza comes from a nearby village but has lived quite some years in Norway.She is a fantastic cook and the meals shared with the family on the terrace are great. Breakfast is better than in most hotels in Malaysia. I certainly will recommend this homestay to everybody. A stay there will give you an unforgetable experience. And on your way back to Kuching, stop a the Orang Utang rehabilitation centre. If you are lucky you will experience these endangered animals from close by.
