This place is a gem. It is not 5 star rooms, but a 5 star experience. It is nestled in a kampong (village) setting, not too far from HUSM. The owners are friendly and very accommodating. I have had 2 experiences on their property. Hosted a small gathering many months back and a 2night stay with friend’s family. Both experiences were superb.
The room is clean and adequate. The air-con was strong. Mini fridge and TV were all working. It was comfortable. The attraction at Min Home Camp is not the room, but the peaceful setting they created. Nice mix of friendly international and local wayfarers.
The laid back piece of property is on the river’s edge and nicely shaded. Nice breeze with the agreeable smells and sounds of the river. The grounds are well kept. They also have a mini petting zoo thing going on, so kid friendly. There are an assortment of fowl, like Ayam Belanda, roaming around. Monkeys, bunnies and stingless honey bees make for a pleasant retreat.
They also offer kayaking, archery and firefly tours. My guests have taken part in both kayaking and firefly tour, both received thumbs up. This is one of the few places where the fireflies (kelip kelip) light in unison, not randomly. It’s best to go around the new moon, less light pollution. Also, not advised to go right after it rains.
Breakfast is halal and tasty. It’s self serve with one charming spin. Washing your dishes is also self-serve. It creates a camp like, gotong royong, community like spirit. There is a neighbourly masjid nearby as well.
I hosted a gathering of 20+ coworkers here many months back. They offer catering: complete meals or drinks and appetisers. Kak Yah and her staff were really helpful. It was a great location because it was close to KB, but the wonderful setting made it feel far away. No, you don’t have to wash your own dishes if that’s what were thinking,lol. It was a memorable event and received many compliments on the location.
Please note, Min House Camp is cash only, no credit cards. It is delightful place I will definitely return. A real gem in Kubang Kerian.
