General description

  • Main home
Picture up soon! This two-storey detached home is one that I share with two others. I'm usually the only one who stays at home all the time, whereas my flatmates are more transient, coming from other districts in Brunei (they often go home, so they live here only part-time). It has a large compound, great for jogging around and enjoying the outdoors. The property is bordered by trees.

Needs and Animals

  • My property
It would be great to have someone at the house since it's not really lived-in all the time (except when I'm around). We are all girls so I prefer the sitter to be one, too.

What I ask of the sitter is to clean the house at least once a week to free it from cobwebs and gecko droppings. You don't have to be there all the time, in case you wish to roam or travel for a short while. Having guests is alright, as long as you let me know in advance - but not to stay over.

Also, it is an old house, so from time to time something is not working well, in which case the sitter can report to my family who can arrange for someone to fix it.

Practical life

  • Isolated
  • More than 500 m² (5290 sq. ft.)
  • 200 - 1000 m² (2110 - 1060 sq. ft.)
  • Washing machine
  • Enclosed garden
  • No elevator
  • 2e floor
  • No disabled access
It's in a small village, which is not accessed by bus. You'll definitely need a car if you wish to move around.

There is no internet. There are some books which I have been given over the years, although a small collection is mine. The surrounding is mostly quiet, with plenty of visiting birds and butterflies. Like the rest of Brunei, it is awash with greenery. This is great for a decompression period after a long stretch of travel and you just want to feel rooted.

Comfort and Luxury

  • One floor
  • One room of which one bedroom
  • Car parking available
  • Landscaped garden
  • Book library
  • Air conditioning

Tourism and Leisure

  • Forest
Because of the calm and greenery, you can feel quite relaxed.

People who stay here enjoy the simple life, though not quite off the grid since there are electricity and water.

You don't have to stay on for the entire time. We can make arrangements for you to go and come back at a later date. You'll need to return the keys, though, and wait if someone else is available to take care of the place.
