“Feel like at home”
Reviewed 31 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed 7D 6N at the owner house and it was a wonderful experience. Irene was very friendly and almost full time at home greeting us. She even supply us mattress and blanket with no extra charge. Low water pressure and minor faulty toilet was the only set back but we still enjoy the stay. Irene few times even made breakfast for my 7 year old son which we appreciate it. Definitely my first choice to come back to stay here again in Penang.

“Excellent in terms of price, location, accommodation and hospitality.”

The homestay house is both modern and colossal and well located in Batu Ferrenghi, close to the central area but private nonetheless. We had the master bedroom with a huge bathroom and walk-in shower, and also a private balcony - although you have the whole house at your disposal. Irene herself couldn't have been a better host. She's a keen gardener too, so you get the benefit of that as well. The price was competitive, the breakfasts were sumptuous and beautifully presented. All in all, this place is highly recommended. We must say that having spent a couple of weeks there, Irene is now a friend rather than a hostess, hence this glowing review!
