“Excellent option for families”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We were looking for a good place to spend the night before embarking in the morning for a nearby island.
Looking at hotel options in Mersing was quite depressing from existing reviews, until I stumbled on Singstay. We made arrangements to arrive rather late (10pm) with the owner, Tolo, who is extremely responsive, helpful and accomodating.
His dedication went as far as going with us to the jetty in the morning and helping with our suitcases.
We will definitely stay again!

“A great base for the east coast or over night in Mesring”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This is not a hotel or really even a guesthouse.
You will rent a fantastic fully equipped, modern, clean well maintained house which is in the middle of a small quiet housing development.
Tolo , the owner was amazing the sort of host that you only meet very rarely.
Tolo runs a business in Mersing Town centre. He will contact you by e-mail before you arrive and give you his mobile number. If you arrive by ferry or bus he will pick you up and drive you to the house.
He genuinely wants to help you and will do as much as he can to make sure you enjoy your stay. Like most of the Malaysian people we met he wants nothing in return.
We stayed here overnight twice on our way to and from Tioman Island. Really the house would be a perfect base if you were planning to tour the east coast.
It is a 20 minute walk to the town for restaurants or 30 to the ferry terminal – if you are brave and want to practise speaking Malay there are a couple of local style cafes where if you can make yourself understood you might get some for breakfast.
There are also some very good cafes by the bus station complex.
The house has four large bedrooms, 2 en-suites and a ground floor shower room. Downstairs there is a fully equipped d kitchen with fridge freeze and washing machine in the lounge a comfortable suite and a massive TV and Wi-Fi.

How easy was it to book the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

“best option to stay over in Mersing”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

End of July 2015 we needed to stay over for 1 night in Mersing to catch the morning ferry to Tioman. We booked a new place to stay in Mersing: Singstay. Also called 'Homestay Tolo'. We were very pleased with the large apartment in a quiet, new area, at 2 levels, airco in all rooms, kitchen with fridge and water boiler, free and good working wifi. Only minus points are for the quite hard beds.
The owner Tolo was very kind and helpful. He speaks English very well, he drove us to the ferry in the morning and while we were standing in line (very long...) he got us lot of stuff for breakfast. He did not even charge this all. Later on he send us an sms about 2 bottles we forgot in the kitchen. After our stay on Tioman we got them back from Tolo. What a very friendly place.
