  • Description


    Our house is in Tenom which is a few hours drive from Kota Kinabalu. We have family of five children, 26 year old girl, 25 girl, 21 boy, 20 girl and 14 girl. Our house has a little plantation of palm oil, other kinds of fruits in front of the house. We have dogs and cats. There is no internet in the house . I check the emails every two days or so.

    Here is the access to Tenon.
    Take a taxi/big bus at a taxi/big bus station at a taxi/big bus station in Kota Kinabalu to Tenon taxi/bus station. It is two and half hours drive. Then I will be there to pick you up. It is half an hour drive from the station to my house. I think taking a taxi costs RM40, and RM30 for a big bus.

    I will provide you my phone number after you confirm the stay.
