My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. We chose it based on the excellent reviews here. The room was really clean and Peter and Lilly were very friendly. We had very good food, but nothing better than the rest of our trip in Borneo. There was nothing wrong with the place. However, the biggest problem with it was...

We stayed 2 nights on our way through Borneo and were delighted with our luck in finding this great place! We were picked up from the bus stop in Kundasang (bus 40RM each - bargain!) and also dropped back at the end of our stay - which was very helpful. The room is lovely with a great selection of DVDs...

It’s a 2 hours drive from the Sabah Capital Kota Kinabalu (around 200 MYR with the reliable driver Lily organised for us). After a long period of research Peter and Lily designed and build this bed & breakfast. However, maybe it’s...

We booked into Magic Mountain Country Home on the advice of friends and stayed 3 nights there. The location is very quiet, idyllic and, at 1700 metres, a lovely area to walk around, surrounded by the peaks of mount kinabalu park, and convenient for climbing mount kinabalu itself. Peter and Lily open their home to visitors who are warmly welcomed...

We arrived at Magic Mountain after driving through heavy rain and fog and were very pleased to be welcomed by Peter and Lily. The house is high up above the village, in a quiet spot in the forest around the golf course. Peter and Lily offer transport at a small cost to surrounding areas if you don't have your own...

My wife and I spent the 2nd half of our honeymoon staying with Peter and Lily at Magic Mountain between 7–10 October, and can’t sing their praises enough.

We were looking for a new accommodation experience around Kundasang/Mt Kinabalu and after reading other reviews of Magic Mountain it sounded like the perfect option.
