The penthouse is located in the centre of Kota Kinabalu, the capital city of Sabah, Malaysia. It is a spacious 5-bedroom apartment occupying the top two floors (11th & 12th) of the newest block in Marina Court, a modern complex fronting the South China Sea. From both floors of the penthouse, you will enjoy unobstructed breathtaking views of the sea and the nearby islands.

As you enter the air-conditioned Penthouse on the 11th floor, you walk across white tiles into a spacious open-plan living/dining area. A Turkish wool rug softens the floor of the lounge, surrounded by an extremely comfortable lounge suite, offering the ultimate in relaxation, in front of the 42" plasma television on which you can choose from a host of channels via the satellite connection. Adjacent to the TV, is a computer complete with printer and Internet access, a phone for local or incoming calls. The Internet is on broadband and includes the function of Skype, enabling you to call the penthouse management in New Zealand free of charge, in case of any requests, queries or problems.

For that cool refreshing drink, especially after a hot but enjoyable day in the sun, your own private bar is located between the lounge and the dining areas.  The bar has its own fridge, wine rack, fruit juicer and a variety of drinking glasses. You are welcome to partake of any drinks that are stocked upon your arrival, provided you replace them before you leave.

The beautiful dining room table and its eight chairs were locally fashioned out of pure Sabah Oak.  Your view across the sea is still an attraction, as you take your place for your daily meals.  A serving aperture connects the dining room with an attractive ergonomically designed kitchen.  The kitchen is fully equipped, including a fridge freezer (with ice maker) and gas hob, allowing you to prepare whatever you desire; whether it is just a simple breakfast or a 5-course feast.

The kitchen sink and the refrigerator are both fitted with a state of the art filtration system that gives you safe clean drinking water. We provide a "starter pack of tea, coffee, milk, cold water and cereal. If you want more or you have other requests in the way of food & drink, you can place an order with the maid who will be happy to shop for you (for a small fee). The maid will also be happy to wash and iron your clothes for you, if you so wish.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a balcony used as a laundry area.  Here you will find all that you need to keep you looking smart; a washing machine, iron and ironing board.
