My neighbour, Donna, told me about this interesting lodging and said that I should make a visit, too. Well, that was NINE months ago! It was only last week that I finally managed to fit the trip into my schedule to check it out and also its mushroom farm.
Known as EFM Nature Homestay or EFM Mini Rest House, where EFM stands for Ever Fresh Mushroom, this property is located on a 5-acre piece of land just five minutes by car from the popular Qing Xin Ling Leisure & Cultural Village.
Ever Fresh Mushroom began in 1998 as an oyster mushroom farm. It was only about two years ago that the owners expanded their business into “nature homestay” and built twelve units of chalets, a plan from the couple’s son, Dennis.
EFM Nature Homestay is most suitable for families on vacation who are looking for total relaxation; away from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet just a stone’s throw away from the convenience of city living.
These chalets, as you can see from their spacious layouts and high ceiling, cater to families or groups of up to 8 or 9 pax. All units are equipped with television set with Astro and a refrigerator.
Complimentary WiFi, air-conditioning and water heater are provided, too. The premium unit even comes with a hot tub. For the comfort of guests, all windows have been installed with mosquito mesh.
I wish to say that guests at EFM Mini Rest House would enjoy the amenities of modern living yet be surrounded by lush green nature.
Guests have to plan their own meals and other activities, such as fishing (catch & release only) or a BBQ session. They can either bring along their own equipment or have them arranged by the folk at EFM.
Guests can help themselves to tropical fruits from the mini orchard here when it is fruiting season. However, if you are asking about the mushroom farm, that will be in my next post HERE!
