About this listing

My place is in the beautiful Borneo Highlands rainforest. You’ll love relaxing there, after a trip to see Orangutans, or a longhouse, or a jungle trek, or kayaking. Do some fishing, reading, socializing. Find out the real Sarawak by sampling local cuisine (vegetarian dishes available) and talking to the people here. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families with kids).

The space

This is an ideal place to explore the environment and then relax in reasonable comfort at reasonable prices.
The guesthouse is fenced off, at the back of our .75 acre plot, set into the cool hillside.

Guest access

You have free access to all areas except bedrooms booked by other guests. These include kitchen, bbq area, terrace, chill/internet area and outdoor freshwater shower (curtained off.) Wander round the organic garden, fish in our ponds, watch the stars at night.

Interaction with guests

Help is always near! We can book kayaking or trekking trips, or take you to local landmarks in a Toyota Fortuna (with aircon, seating 7) With notice, cooked evening meals can be arranged. Breakfast is free, on a help yourself basis.

Other things to note

We have two outdoor dogs. They are well-trained and friendly, and the guesthouse is fenced off from their area. Please do not feed them! (But you can save food scraps and bones for their set feeding time.)
An honesty policy operates for food & drink items on sale in the kitchen.
Ditto books: bring one, take two; or take one to read on your return journey.

With 30+ AirBnB stays in 6 different countries , we learned to appreciate host's attention to details. In our books, R&R Haven scored highly with fast and clear communication, well equipped and clean rooms / kitchen / common areas, and hot showers with towels provided. The hosts, Ren and Roger are very welcoming and their life experiences are interesting and inspiring. Our original booking was for 4 nights, which was extended to 7 nights total. During our stay we have used extra services offered: home cooked dinners (excellent by any standard) , transportation, various activities with local operators and guides, and the laundry service. During our stay there was no WiFi. It is important to state that R&R Haven is in the area where there is no store and /or restaurant. Also, there is no public transport (bus) , and as a result the transportation as such is limiting the freedom of movement and it is cost prohibitive. Also, as Ren & Roger are new to hosting and we were their 1st AirBnB guests, there was some confusion about pricing of extra services provided. However, all was sorted out in good faith and I believe in the future R&R Haven will provide clear pricing information to all guests before their arrival.

Response from Roger:
Hi Vladka, Den... many thanks for a fair review. Re. Wifi, we mentioned a Mobifi is due to be installed, and that guests are welcome to use our dongle, which gives internet connection. Transport : your information on hiring motorbikes is a really useful idea. Re. catering, we provide breakfast free and will set up a store to sell items should guests wish to self-cater. Re. pricing, many thanks for being so understanding and helping us work out a viable system that guests can see before arrival. Good luck on your future travels! Roger & Ren

Roger is a much-traveled Englishman, and his wife Rendai is a Dayak. We are retired, so can devote plenty of time to making sure your stay is the best. Fresh air, music, books, conversation and my wife are things that make my life even more enjoyable. Rendai was a nurse, and has a way of making everyone feel at home.
