Overview:

Stunning Beach Front Villa with Natural Private Rock Pool

Poseidon House is a luxurious beach house set in a beautiful and natural tropical garden, nestled on a secluded white-sandy beach in exotic North Borneo on the picturesque north coast of Sabah, Malaysia, near the famous tip of Borneo. The house is atop of a 26 meter high rock outcrop with outstanding views of the Tun Mustapha Marine Park through the 60 foot sliding glass wall. It encompasses 35 offshore islands, coral atolls and crescent beach below. The house is enclosed in an exclusive and secluded 3.2 acre plot. (Additional 2.02 adjacent acres available.)

Poseidon House gives a true feeling that you are living in tropical Borneo with bejeweled butterflies, exotic birds, colourfully decorated insects, mischievous squirrels and all sorts of tropical flora and fauna. The tropical rainforest garden stretches down to the private beach 80 feet below. Just follow the flower lined winding path and you will find the front garden is at the center of one of the most diverse coral reef ecosystems in the world! With miles of pristine white sand to call your own, your only companions will be local fishermen casting their nets into the azure blue waters as generations before.

The house itself is spacious, bright and airy, fully air conditioned with ceiling fans, and panoramic decks. Every room is lit by large, glass picture windows to make the most of the views out to sea. It also has a great outdoor entertainment deck and barbeque, gourmet kitchen, elegant dining room, a lounge with satellite TV and surround sound stereo. There is a shady pool pavilion for quiet reflection, reading or a quiet drink. At night, the pavilion can be turned into a tropical sleep experience, with the warm sea and its waves gentle lapping on the beach below, lulling one to sleep, a feeling of tranquillity and peace expands as sea breezes drift across the estate. Stunning, unspoiled, natural beaches abound offering beautiful walks along the quiet and romantic beaches fringed with coconut trees and blue sea.The 40 foot long natural rock swimming pool is the only one of its kind in Malaysia, with its infinity edge, serves to cool guests after a long day beach activities or local shopping.

Poseidon House is in a little fishing village called Kudat. Kudat is 40 minute by air or two and half hour by car from Kota Kinabalu where the international airport is. Kudat has its off shore Islands which form part of the famous 'Coral Triangle'. You can walk the beaches to find shells or perhaps jog to the end of the mile long bay or just slip on your fins and mask and take a few strokes out to the stunning coral reef. Simply snorkeling will reveal a bewildering array of dazzling tropical fish, the occasional lobster and marine life as you would see in any diving magazine. If you are lucky you may see turtles graze near the shore or laying eggs along the 2 kilometre wide beach in front of the house. The boat house houses kayaks for you to explore the nearby deserted beaches. Poseidon house is an ideal hideaway with no urban pollution, noise or attitude.

Comments
by Guests:
  • "Like something from a James Bond scene Poseidon's House erupts out of the rock promontory that it sits on. I can almost see Ian Fleming sitting on the large veranda, overlooking a tropical beach ocean view that would challenge any wide angle lense, penning his latest Bond novel. I've stayed here twice when traveling with Borneo Biking Adventures. I remember my first impression of entering through the gate and up the drive through the landscaped surroundings up to the house and then out onto the veranda. After a long day riding to sit outside and stare out over the beautiful view was truly intoxicating. The house itself is a beautiful setting for relaxing and exploring the area around Kudat and beyond. The property is immaculately turned out. My bedroom suite in particular was fantastic with the rock that the house is built on providing one wall to the suite, which added character to the rooms and makes it truly unique. I could have happily stayed there much longer. The property doesn't stop with the landscaped grounds, beautiful house and pool area but extends down to a private beach and reef. This fantastic opportunity to snorkel completely undisturbed for hours simply adds to the feeling that the property is like something out of a Bond movie. The sense of privacy and the luxurious surroundings make this a truly stunning place to stay." (UK guest)
  • "Swam out to the reef from the private beech last week. Stunning, lots of new coral growth, young giant clams, amazing variety of tropical fish. I am a family friend, so not unbiased but this is truly a lovely place. If you are looking for some were really special, Poseidon's Lodge is that. Most suitable for self reliant adventure seekers who want the best." (Malaysia guest)
  • "I have stayed at Poseidon House house a number of times but recently stayed in May with my sister and a girl friend. We had a great time relaxing, Swimming, snorkeling and chilling on the beach. It's a beautiful place with a lovely setting, everything any person could want in a great hideaway with no one around." (Borneo guest)

Area Info:

Local/ Regional Information:: The house is 7 minutes from the local airport, 12 minutes from the golf course, and 15 minutes from the town of Kudat. Many local restaurants can be found in Kudat town, from local Chinese, Malaya and Indian cuisine to International 3 star fare. Local attractions: golf, snorkelling, diving, fishing, kayaking/canoeing, beach and jungle walks. Island hopping and fishing trips can be arranged. There are over 35 islands and atolls just 20 miles off Kudat. Local antique, fish and vegetable markets in Kudat have a wide selection of tropical fish and vegetables making your tropical shopping quite a unique experience.

About Kudat: There are two primary industries in Kudat, coconuts and fishing. Although coconut cultivation has almost died out, thousands of acres of magnificent coconut groves remain. A ride down the miles of winding gravel roads reveal some beautiful old wooden plantation houses built by the Chinese settlers a hundred years ago. Fishing, on the other hand, is still on going. An early morning visit to the fish market to watch the traditional wooded boats come in and unload their catch is fascinating. Ocean fresh fish, octopus, squid, tiger prawns and small sweet scallops are so plentiful and cheap. Its such fun to buy your dinner at the fish market, take it to your favorite local restaurant where the cook will be delighted to prepare it for you any way you chose.

Golf: Kudat has a beautiful 18 holes golf club and it is only 12 minutes drive from Poseidon House. It’s golfers’ heaven at rock button prices.
