First of all, you need to understand the location of the property - it is farther away from the Ranau town center and not properly located on either google or on other maps. Actual location is 5.927038,116.676186 - put it on google maps and save the location to be able to navigate there.
Due to the location and the region itself, it is highly recommended to have your own means of transportation - either private or rental car, otherwise getting in/out the property would be a complicated matter because there are no taxis/cars available nearby.
Also due to the location, your dining options are limited what the property owners will cook for you. Please note, while the neither breakfast nor dinner is not included in the stay, it is relatively cheap (dinner for two was RM24) and was tasty. Just do not expect western type dinner/breakfast.
As for the property - owners are welcoming, hospitable and try to accommodate you. Rooms are quite basic, don't expect anything else except aircon, bed, chair and couple of towels. Bathrooms are not the cleanest, but I've stayed in dirtier places.
One thing which I think worth to mention is insects - I know that it is tropics, and there they are around. However I was not pleased to see 5cm long cockroach couple feets away from my bed. Killing it was not a trivial matter either - had to hit with a slipper at least three times until it stopped running.
The reality is that this property is probably the best overall within 20km radius - don't expect anything fancy in the region.
