Description from owner

Description

Villa consists of 4 en-suite bedrooms with air-conditioning, with infinity pool, jacuzzi & wading pool access, hammocks, outdoor kitchen & BBQ, with deck facing the majestic Bukit Takun & golf course. Surround yourself with nature only a mere 30 mins drive away from the centre of KL.

The retreat is surrounded with 360° views of the Kanching Rainforest Reserve. Upon arrival you would feel as if you have travelled to a remote area but only a 30 minute drive away from the centre of KL. Escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and hold your family and friend gatherings here. The natural environment allows every guest to chill, relax, destress and recharge.

The Retreat is located on a hilltop of a sprawling land of about 3 acres. Two houses are located within- Villa & Container. The houses are located 60m apart from each other, shielded by trees & shrubs for privacy.

There are viewing decks with scenic views overlooking mountains (Bukit Takun/Anak Bukit Takun) and golf course. There is an infinity pool for swimming with jet spa + splash pool in the retreat, outdoor barrel sauna & 14' wide trampoline (shared access with the Container House). Wi-Fi is available. Charcoal with BBQ and other kitchen tools are provided for your cooking needs.

We are also in close proximity to eating places and Tesco is a 8 minute drive away.

There are ample car parking spaces. The environment provides you with tranquillity; it is very cool and breezy because you are surrounded by rainforest.

Your 'neighbors' include cheeky monkeys, otters, monitor lizards, squirrels, tropical colorful birds, wild fowl, large butterflies, dragonflies, bats, fireflies. Prepare yourself for their occasional visits during your stay at the retreat.

Interaction with guest

Mr Saw takes care of the retreat with his passion and enthusiasm of the natural environment together with support from ourselves, his family. We really love meeting new people and making friends with guests near and far. The serenity and tranquillity from escaping the concrete jungle, which all of our guests have experienced here is what we hope to share with everyone. We also have a real passion for nature and life.

Owner's reply: We wish to respond in detail as this review is unjustified. Pam Bell had booked to stay with her family of 7 from March 27 to April 2. Bell did not book via Tripadvisor, but via other means. Two days after arrival, March 29, Pam conveyed that they have some urgent matters to attend to back home in Australia and that their airline managed to get the group on an earlier flight on March 31, hence her 2 nights stay had to be forfeited. She then requested for a refund for the night of March 30. We had explained that cancellation of such late notice - 2 days before is against policy; hence no refund. Bell accepted our explanation at that time. Bell and family left in the wee hours of March 31 at 5am. Not only did they not have the courtesy to check-out, but in their wake they had left all lights turned on and 3 bedroom doors left wide open - this led to monkeys entering and damaging the bedrooms. Bell's answer to this was 'these are your monkeys'. Bell during her stay had complained to us that there were sirens and loud noises - these are few and far between. We had explained the retreat overlooks the Golf course, and when it starts to rain, some sirens will be deployed to alert golfers to danger. Also, we had explained that the retreat being in a rainforest, some loud nature noises occasionally come from wildlife. Bell did not take this for an explanation. After this, Bell began harassing us via email - we received a mail which we felt was defamatory. Bell had added new complaints: one of which was on our renovation crew. If this was a valid concern, like Bell's queries about the siren and noises from the jungle, we would have immediately attended to it. However, Bell had mentioned in her email that Mr Saw is some form of savage character and their travel to Malaysia made them feel unsafe, worried that they will get shot at by a gun, in the retreat. Thus, that is the reason during their stay that the complain was not made. Together with this complain, finally the underlying cause surfaced. She had blackmailed us: "Refund me 2 nights or I will defame you on the internet." Bell complained about not meeting Juliet which is totally unreasonable. Bell could have requested for Juliet to meet them in their frequent messaging during their stay. Juliet was very busy at that period but Bell's family were still well attended to. Bell even had the cheek to complain that we did not bother to see them off - when they actually quietly left at 5.00am with the gates wide open. Bell's complaint about Tesco not being westernised but more local is absolutely absurd. We advised Bell and family before their arrival that it is advisable to rent a car for ease of moving about. We had then very kindly requested for our independent caterer to help Bell and family out in terms of transportation. We ended up having to apologise profusely to our caterer because we found out that he had to chauffeur Bell and family to Tesco, 7/11 store, the pharmacy and even the post office which took him away from his job and other tasks. His complaint was that there was not a word of thanks on the last night. He even had to apologise on their behalf to the local post office staff as Bell and family insisted that the post office should be able allow Bell and family to use their computer to send an email to Australia - as that could be done in Australia. Our caterer apologised because things got a bit heated as Bell and family insisted on getting things done their way. This was a bad experience for the caterer and he was rather upset. We believe that Bell and family should not visit other countries and insist on doing things their own way. In the end, we decided to refund the final night which is April 1 just to close this chapter. But Bell was still not happy to not get her full 2 nights. Hence, this nasty review. Bell and family during their stay, did not bother to buy a phone card. They made use of our wifi to demand service up to their doorstep. As a result of that, the poor caterer had to travel to our place, 10 minutes away just to take Bell's orders and go home and cook Bell's meal. This is unfair to the poor chap because he is just operating a small business and all the added cost like petrol is simply unnecessary. A simple phone message or call would suffice. On a totally scary note, after Bell and family's departure, our housekeeper had found 5 pins stuck in the mattress. If our housekeeper had not managed to do so, could you imagine the downward consequences?
