About Us & The Guesthouse

Our Story

James is a Mulurean from an indigenous tribe – the Berawans. His people have lived in Mulu and along the Tutoh river, where their longhouse Long Terawan sits, since the 1800s. The natives used to farm and were self-sufficient. Organic farming, food forest, jungle medicine, rice wine making and botanical ink producing were part of the skills and knowledge were passed down from generations to generations.

Fast forward to the 21st century

James and I live harmoniously in Mulu with nature and its environment. There are endless benefits of living off-grid such as getting back to our roots, a healthier lifestyle, less impact on the planet and etc. But the biggest benefit in sustainable living teaches a new(old) way of living that everyone should know.

Aside from showcasing the beauty of Mulu’s mountains, Mulu caverns, and rainforests, we enjoy spreading knowledge about what nature has to offer and the benefits that everyone can take home with them.
