  • Description

    Description

    We are trying to built a cultural and art hub where travelers and local can meet and create an utopia for others.This place is a relaxing, secluded base away from the city for hiking, trekking, visits to waterfalls, BBQs and beers in the garden. It is an alternative experience outside from Kuching City where people share their stories and culture.

    Our place is located 50 minutes away from the city in a small quiet modern village in the jungle well away from the noise and bustle of Kuching City Centre

    It is easily accessible by car,motorbike or bus. The bus stop is an easy 15 minute walk from the house.

    It is a great opportunity to stay with locals and get to know the native people and their culture first hand. Learn to relax, be kind to each others and feel a part of a community just like a local and help us create a special place for future travelers to experience.

    Our main goal right now is to start a sustainable garden that we can use every day for our food. We have the beginnings of a garden started, but we need help to turn it into something much more. If you have experience gardening we would love for you to come.

    We would also like to decorate the place and people familiar with carpentry or wood working skills and come and make furniture or other items to turn this into a special place.

    Even if you don't have any special skills, there is always something special someone can bring with them, don't hesitate to contact us if you think this place would be a good fit for you.We welcome any ideas and any skills to make this palace alive.

    On the side we are in the process of setting up a tour company. If you have experience related to business or are interested possibly in being a part of the tour we can find a way to make it happen. You can even experience the fun of the tours yourself. For this though we need someone who is willing to spend a long time :)
