The space

If you are travelling in a bigger group, this is definitely your better choice. With 3 bedrooms, we provide 1 King, 1 Queen and 4 single beds and it comfortably fit 8 person. This unit is air-conditioned and well-kept, and basic amenities in the unit are provided for your convenience.

Guest access

Swimming pool and playground! :)

The neighbourhood

Just opposite the apartments is the Waterfront – a broad, wooden boardwalk overlooking the sea and the islands of the Tungku Abdul Rahman National Park. You will find a wide range of restaurants, be it seafood, western, local or international cuisine. Not to forget about the pubs and bars, it is definitely not to be missed.

A newly opened shopping mall called Oceanus is within walking distance as well. Besides, there is also a handicraft market where you get all handicraft work and souvenirs, and you get to mingle with the locals/Filipino to understand more about the culture.

Getting around

Public transport isn't as convenient in Kota Kinabalu, so I still suggest you to walk around town area, if not, hop into a cab/taxi. If you need any good and honest taxi driver, I can recommend one :)

We requested a fairly last-minute booking and there was a large influx of visitors to the city while I was there, so check in day was hectic. Unfortunately I cannot comment on this particular apartment as it was not actually available. We were given a similar apartment the first night and then had to move to a second apartment for the remaining days. The first apartment was of much lower quality than we were expecting, but Anne and the host were thoughtful to upgrade us to a fabulous apartment for our remaining days. I never actually met Anne, although she kindly sent me a message with check in instructions which required contacting the owner via a messaging app. Instructions on where to meet for check in were somewhat vague, but we were able to figure it out. The host was very kind and accommodating upon check in. Overall, I'd say we had an enjoyable stay and the upgraded apartment made up for the minor mishaps with booking, etc. The location is very convenient to a wide variety of shops and restaurants. Would recommend!

The location of this listing is very convenient- right in an area with shopping, restaurants, bars, convenience stores, and money changers. The water front is gorgeous! That being said, some forewarning about our experience with this listing: 1. It would have been helpful to know we were going to pay a 200 ringgit deposit in cash (about $50) on the apartment. We only had a small amount of cash exchanged and that really made it inconvenient to have given up that money on our very first night. 2. No one was at the listing to meet us. The pre-arranged cab driver (arranged with the host) met us at the airport and gave us the keys, but he just dropped us off and tried to explain things on the curb in very, very broken English. It was hard to understand everything he was saying and there was no one to explain the apartment, such as how the toilets and air conditioning worked, where the lobby was, or where the pool was. We had to try to figure all of this out as best we could on our own. 3. The shower and sink in the stand alone bathroom was constantly leaking/dripping- the floor was ALWAYS wet. 4. My friend sat on one of the kitchen chairs and hurt herself because the leg was clearly broken before and not properly fixed. The leg broke again and she fell to the floor. None of us would use the kitchen chairs after that. 5. The cab driver told us that we could only keep our luggage at the lobby until 5:00 pm, even though I had contacted the host prior and been told that our bags could be stored in the secure lobby until we left for the airport at 9 pm. There was a lot of confusion in following up with the host on where and when exactly our bags could be held. This was alleviated as another person we spoke with informed us that we could have a late checkout and just keep our bags in the room, but this was frustrating in making plans for our last day. 6. Prior to arriving, the host informed me of a "nearby hotel" to have tour operators pick us up. When I followed up as the date got closer, she informed me that she had mistakenly told me a hotel for a different listing and we would have to take a cab to meet up with our tour. Luckily, the tour operator did not charge us and was able to change the pick-up location. Overall, the photos are accurate, the listing is in a prime location, and Anne was quick to respond to messages. There were several mis-communications that could have been avoided, however.

Great apartment, 2 shopping centre next the resort, just walk around 5-10 mins to Welcome seafood restaurant and Gage walking street. Our children really enjoy the two swimming pools, clean and neat.
