We really enjoyed our stay with Peter & Lily and their lovely home. We could not have planned our Mount Kinabalu climb without their help - they were so generous with their time and basically helped us secure a spot at Laban Rata and also helped arrange everything, starting from the late night taxi to their home (where they had...

My wife and I stayed at MMCH for 4 days. The home is roughly 30 minutes past the Kinabalu Park entrance when driving from Kota Kinabalu. It is 15 or so minutes to the nearest sizeable town (Kundasang) which has an open produce market - and a more extensive market on Fridays. Definitely not the place to stay if you...

We stayed 6 days with Peter and Lily in their amazing country homestead. Our stay was wonderful, we were very well looked after the whole time. The meals were top quality and the overall cost to stay was cheaper than when we stayed in some of the 4 star hotels else where in Borneo. Peter and Lily's warmth and generosity...

We were desperately looking for a small, cozy and affordable accommodation with genuine malaysian touch from Kota Kinabalu and it´s surroundings and were almost falling into desperation until we found this Country Home from here. It seemed to be everything that we were looking for and turned out to be even so much more! Peter and Lily proved to be...

Peter & Lily have built a comfortable B & B, close to Mt Kinabalu and Kandasang. They are both lovely, friendly hosts who went out of their way to ensure our three day stay was relaxing and memorable. Although the rooms are comfortable, decorated stylishly and have an ensuite attached, it is the food and company that impressed us the...

We have emigrated to Kota Kinabalu from the UK 3 months ago, and decided it was time to go on holiday!!. Our friend recommended Magic Mountain country home to us. So we went for 2 nights, it is approx 120km from Kota Kinabalu. If you are looking for a place to stay near the mountain, this is the place. Not...

We stayed with Peter and Lily for 3 nights and really loved it. They took us to the Kinabalu Park, the pitcherplants and also the local market in Kundasang. We really liked the quiet location, the room with lots of DVD's, the dogs and of course the food. Peter and Lily have a lot of interesting stories to tell about...

Magic Mountain B and B was an ideal place to unwind at the end of two months travelling. The location is quiet and fairly remote - transport to the B and B is best arranged prior to arrival through the owners. Set at 2000 metes with views of Mt Kinabalu, the weather is beautifully cool compared with the heat of...
