Local Information: The Poseidon House is 5 minutes from the local airport, 10 minutes from the local golf course, and 15 minutes from the town centre of Kudat. For the keen explorer, the culture here is rich and diverse, as many local restaurants can be found serving a wide selection of different cuisines, ranging from Chinese, to Malaysian and even Western varieties.

Kudat is kept alive by two main industries; that of the coconut palm, and fishing. Although the coconut industry has almost died out, thousands of acres of magnificent coconut plantations still remain. A drive down the miles of winding gravel roads will reveal some of the most beautiful old wooden plantation houses, many of which are hundreds of years old.
The fishing industry on the other hand, is still an ongoing way of life that is keeping Kudat running. An early morning visit to the local fish market can reward that early riser with the site of a traditional wooden fishing vessel docking into the harbour to unload its catch. Freshly caught fish, squid, and prawns are cheap and plentiful, and it is quite the experience to purchase a catch of your choice, then make your way to a local restaurant where the chef will be delighted to prepare it for you in a manner of your choosing.
"We stayed at the Poseidon house for a week over Christmas with two kids and had a fantastic time. The house is in a truly unique setting, no neighbours, no camp site, no disco, just jungle and passing eagles, hornbills and, on moonless nights, a perfect view of Orion's belt and Saturn. The staff was very nice and access to very cheap freshly fished local seafood grilled to perfection in the evening (along with a few beers) made it a very special holiday. Would definitely go again, especially to write (and sleep). Lovely local people too. Perfectly safe." Frederick B. Singapore
