I can't recommend Kurakura homestay highly enough!
From the moment Lars picked us up in Kuching we felt we were with friends. After a 30 minute drive via the vegetable market, and an exquisit 4 km longboat ride into the jungle, you arrive at the woodern home that Lisa and Lars spent two years building on some family land. The family including Lisa's parents still husband the land including their pepper trees and multiple fruit trees, and make daily circuits around the rubber trree to collect the rubber.
Lisa's family are Bidayuk and used to live in a long house before it burnt down, She cooks exquisitly using fresh local and traditional ingredients. We ate with the family including their young nephrew and new baby, and were made to feel like family. We had two nights and in the middle day were taken to Annah Rais and onto their favorite waterfall spot which felt like a shared secret!
Thank you Lars and Lisa (and Jungu aged 6)
