Top Most Unique AirBnb Stays in Kota Kinabalu
Not your average getaway
Just a little over a decade ago, Sabah was somewhat undiscovered. However, since then travellers from across the globe have been visiting in increasing numbers every year.
Sabah has so much to offer from pristine beaches, virgin jungles and award-winning sunsets. If you're looking for a lux-city home to lodge at, there are plenty of those on the first few pages of Airbnb homes under "Kota Kinabalu" and all are very much worth your attention but I was interested to hunt for the hidden gems.
I have scoured hundreds of Airbnbs
so that you don't have to.
Here are 6 unique Airbnb homes that are not your average homestay, dotted along from the capital, Kota Kinabalu up until the Tip of Borneo.
Located in the charming and small, Kota Kinabalu town of Tanjung Aru, this Airbnb is truly a hidden gem. Its unique studio-inspired quirks have made it the only Airbnb Plus in Sabah!
