Kura-Kura Homestay

A true jungle guesthouse located next to Kuching Sarawak river, a paradise surrounded by the rain forest of Borneo, Malaysia. At this place Lars and Liza with their daughter Froya (born Jan 2010) have built our jungle home, a small farm where they have their own organically grown vegetables, fruits, herbs and a pepper garden.

They have tried to build an ecological place with solar energy and recycling. And with four extra bedrooms, a Bidayuh village(Kpg Semadang), wild jungle and Sarawak river flowing by it’s a beautiful place to stay and experience local life, culture, food and a inhospitable but amazing wilderness.

Basic but clean accommodation together with a amazing experience are what they can offer and for those who are interested in birds, reptiles or other creatures of the rain forest it’s a perfect place to stay and watch the wildlife.
