Rose, her family and everyone else we met there were a delight. We felt right at home from the moment she met us at the airport. They were happy to accommodate us in any way possible and to suggest appropriate activities for our family. The setting and the weather were amazing, we had a fantastic time, highly recommended!

Tranquil gateway

I was introduced to Sinurambi by a friend. The photos on the web looked too good to be true, but the house is as amazing in reality! Very well organized with well appointed rooms, all very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is very complete for those who want a full meal (I'm a coffee and 2 hard-boiled-eggs-kinda-gal) but Rose convinced me to try their thin pancakes and I couldn't stop at 2. And they have proper coffee, a big plus. I recommend it for people who want a relaxing get-away, definitely a cool sanctuary away from the hot town. I didnt need transport but I understand it's easy enough to rent a car. Drivers in KK are super patient so no worries about road rage there.

Born again each year

I have taken a holiday at "Sinurambi" every year for the last ten years. Yes, every year for the last ten years! Terry and Rose are just the best hosts ever; they make me feel incredibly welcome and at home and there is always something going on if I want to join in, or I can simply potter about and do my own thing. I relax, I sleep, I recharge my physical and mental battery, I excercise, eat delicious asian and Western food and I lose weight! My excema goes away, my smile returns and I realise just how lucky I am to be alive. The beautiful house is set in lush greenery with butterflies and moths fluttering about, and as a beekeeper I am fascinated by the stingless honey bees that nest in the grounds. Quite simply, without Terry and Rose and an annual trip to "Sinurambi" each year I wouldn't be the man I am.

Wonderful Stay in the Mountains

We had an absolutely marvelous, memorable time at Sinurambi over the course of five days. The hosts are a delightful couple with a charming young son, the location in the mountains is dreamy, the weather is delightful, the food wonderful, the conversation sparkling ... hard to know where to stop. Unreservedly recommended for travelers who would like to get away from the maddening crowds, which we experienced first-hand at the seaside resorts during the Lunar New Year. Sinurambi even comes with its own outdoor fitness track - the owners drop you off at the bottom of their 5km driveway at 7am and you have to hike your way back up! How could you ever go back to a fitness center treadmill after that!?! We dined most evenings at the property and were treated to a variety of cuisines - from spicy local to hearty old world; all were excellent.

My only suggestion might be for visitors to secure their own mode of transportation before arriving, just to provide an extra degree of freedom to explore the area.
Owner's Response: Its always a pleasure to meet interesting people like you. We hope to give our guests the privacy and peace they crave from today's hectic lifestyle. We are a pit stop for some and a retreat for most people. The mornings or evening walks is fantastic to work your appetite for the next meal. We have a yoga ball and mats for those who are that way incline. Just ask for it. The exercise bench and dumb bells are on its way! Or else just google some funky exercise on the trampoline. Its amazing exercise too. OR do absolutely nothing and laze around by the pool:)))

Fantastic and exotic. A real home.

Rose and Terry are excellent hosts. They open up their own home to us. The dialog with Rose before we arrived (e-mail) really made us look forward to our stay. It simplified our trip planning. We got a lot of tips/activities.
The facilities are beautiful, clean and everything you need is present. Excellent local food "at home". We automatically became a part of the family and their friends. Exotic surroundings. Opportunities to relax, exercise and experience local Sabah and KK. Sinurambi is an excellent place to stay. We travel with two kids, 13 and 15. We will highly recommend this place to others. We will be back!
Owner's Response: Hi Nina!
Thank you for the marvelous company and infectious laugh.
What lovely children. See you next time!

Warmest tropical wishes,
The Mills
