About the neighbourhood
Hibiscus Villa is situated in an enviable and secluded position at the northernmost Tip of Borneo in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. The capital city, Kota Kinabalu, is about 170 kilometres south. The villa is located amongst a diverse natural environment of undulating hills and valleys lined with lush forests and a pristine, coral-fringed coastline with secluded coves, white sandy beaches and clear azure waters.

The nearest town, Kudat, a commercial fishing port, is a 25 minutes' drive away. It has a wide range of restaurants, shops and banks, with daily markets, fresh fish market, an 18-hole golf course and marina and hospital. The villa is a 5 minutes' drive from Borneo's northern most tip, the famed landmark, Simpang Mengayau, or the Tip of Borneo.
