Near Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan, on the south west coast of Malaysia, Lake View Farmstay has self catering chalet accommodation surrounded by five acres of land and its own private lake. It is a cute friendly place with a family atmosphere and can be a nice gentle introduction to rural farming life.
The air conditioned chalet has 4 spacious bedrooms, each with one queen size bed and two singles, so there is space for up to 16 people to sleep. There is also a lounge/living room and dining area, a fully-equipped kitchen and four bathrooms.
The lounge is spacious with plenty of seating and doors that open out on the lake where you’ll find plenty of space to relax, as well as barbecue facilities and outdoor seating.
The small farm has a number of friendly goats, hens and ducks, and grows various fruits and vegetables. Guests can enjoy plenty of interaction with the animals and are free to wander around the farm as much as they like. The farm owners have canoes and rowing boats for trips out on the lake as well as fishing equipment, which all guests are free to use. You’ll find the whole environment enjoyable in a very relaxing and pleasant way.
The lovely, and very popular, beaches of Port Dickson are just 5 km from the farmstay, and there are plenty of great beaches all along the nearby coast from Tanjung Gemuk to Tanjung Tuan and beyond. The town of Port Dickson itself isn’t terribly beautiful or interesting but it does have plenty of shops, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants, and gets busy with tourists making their way down to the beaches.
There also some historical sights around too including the Temple of Wan Loong and the hilltop Kota Lukut fortress, and the very lovely, and very historical (UNESCO World Heritage) city of Melaka, or Malacca, is about 100km south down the coast.
The newly built ‘garden city’ of Putrajaya is about 43 km away from the farmstay and can make for an interesting, non touristy, diversion, while Malaysia’s huge capital Kuala Lumpur is about 60km to the north.
