Our first trip to Malaysia and our accommodation was excellent value for money. Our hosts Oya & Ena cooked for us and looked after us. We were able to hire their car for trips and we had a fantastic time!

Management response:

Thank You Annette. We had a fantastic time hosting you! We hope to see you again. Take care. :)

As per the description, this is out of the way and if you want to eat out or sight see then you will need transport. The thing is, the food is excellent as you could have full board and didn't need to eat anywhere else. The accommodation is clean, spacious and comfortable. A very calming place to stay with a...

Thank you for your kind words. I do agree about the beach, we had a pretty bad Monsoon so rubbish gets washed up. It should be back to idyllic once Monsoon ends in late March. It was nice to know you and wish you both all the best!

About the neighbourhood
Summerland is one of the only 3 properties located on a deserted stretch of beach for as far as 4 km. The only time you might get to see more than 3 people would be in the evening on weekends when the locals have a picnic or take their children for a swim.
Turtles come up on this beach to lay their eggs and the beach is protected under the WWF Organisation.
It is quite isolated and very quiet except for the sound of the waves , birds and occasionally, cows that wander.
There are a number of eating places offering local treats accessible by car and there is a big grocery store which is a 5 minute drive.
There is absolutely no nightlife here, only Nature to behold. You can take a boat to visit the nearby Islands in just half an hour and do snorkeling or diving.
