Interaction with guests
Apart from English, my mother speaks Chinese and Tessa speaks Malay. You will be picked up by our partner tour guide Roy, who speaks Chinese, English and Malay. Many of our guests enjoy taking tours with him and he will be able to advise you on places to visit as well as restaurants and local food. You can read about him in a number of our reviews.
Mum has a cat called Miu Miu that you are welcome to play with, while our cat Henry may be around from time to time. If you enjoy talking politics, my father is always happy to chat about that subject!
Please ask us if you have any other questions.
Other things to note
If you want to buy groceries, the closest supermarket is Dixons, which is an 8minute walk away.
Apart from KK City, you can also take bus 8C or 8D to the beautiful floating City Mosque in Likas Bay, Tanjung Lipat Beach, University Malaysia Sabah, and OneBorneo Shopping Mall.
Take Bus 10A from near our house to visit the town of Tamparuli where you can see the 'Rumah Terbalik' Upside Down House, eat Tamparuli Noodles, visit the famous Jambatan Tamparuli Bridge, shop at the Tamparuli Tamu Market (6am-2pm every Wednesday), or go paragliding (usually Mon-Thurs)!
To get to Mt Kinabalu, you'll need to go into town and take a bus or minibus from the Padang Merdeka bus station heading to Kundasang or Ranau. Ask the driver to stop at Kinabalu Park. It should cost around RM20 and take 1.5 - 2 hours.
To get to Tanjung Aru Beach, take bus 16C from the Waterfront in town, to "Pantai Tanjung Aru". Buses from the beach stop running around 6.30pm, after which you will need to take a taxi, or visit the musical fountain at Perdana Park (7pm-10pm) before walking to the Airport Terminal 2 to take the Airport Bus (RM5 - last bus 8pm) to Padang Merdeka Terminal. Remember most buses in KK stop running about 8pm.
We really recommend using the City Bus to do a loop around the city just to get your bearings and a quick overview. The City bus can take you from one bus terminal to another.
ELECTRICITY: The voltage used in Malaysia is 230/240 volts -50hz. If your electrical appliance uses 110/120 volts, you need to use a transformer/converter to step down the 230/240 volts Malaysian voltage to your 110/120 volt appliances. Failing to do so will damage your electrical appliances.
Please remove your shoes.
Please keep the noise down after 11pm
Please tidy after yourselves and place any rubbish in the bins provided.
Please turn off the aircon and electricity when you leave the house.
Please do not put sanitary towels down the toilet. Instead please put them in the bin provided.
We usually lock the gate before 11pm, so please inform us in advance if you plan to be out late.

There are a few of us hosting at Garden Serenity.
I'm an industrial voice trainer, emcee, singer and voiceover artist. My wife is a behavioural life coach consultant and my mother is a retired nurse, and either of them will be cooking a Full English breakfast for you. You will most likely be entertained by Mum's cat MiuMiu or our cat Henry, and you will usually be picked up by us or our partner tour guide, Roy. He offers tours and advice on where to go and where to eat, and you can read about them in the reviews.
If you need any medical help during your stay, my father is a doctor and has a clinic in town, so rest assured you will be in safe hands!
If you have any other questions, please ask :)
