We offer best-value introductory price for a choice guesthouse. Located in an old residential suburban enclave, our home has embraced modernity & present-day conveniences and facilities and yet the exterior and the surrounding retain the old kampong ambience. The tall luxuriant tropical fruit trees all around provide shade and add to the rustic charm of our home. And to top it all, our home is a mere few mins' drive to well-known attractions like Gurney Drive, Botanic Gardens & Georgetown.
Our guesthouse is cozy, clean and comfortable with 3 spacious bedrooms, living room, dining room and kitchen, all fully equipped and furnished. All bedrooms and living room are air-conditioned with ceiling fans attached. There is access to internet and WIFI and there is cable television.
Surrounding the house, are big tropical fruit trees which guests will be able to see and taste the fruits if they are in season. Dotting the compound are also local herbs and spices with their names attached. There is ample space for two cars to park in the compound.
Guests have full access to the entire house of 3 bedrooms, living, dining, kitchen, bathrooms and toilets and side and back yards where guests can learn about local herbs and spices and fruit trees. Check-in time is from 2 pm till 9 pm and check-out time is 12 noon but if the place is available guests may book in earlier or check out later upon request.
Interazione con gli ospiti
We are contactable at all times from the date of booking and will answer all queries and provide all essential information that our guests require.
We have on our main wooden door, a reliable digital lock with a secret 6-digit code which we will provide to our guests prior to their arrival. And we have a representative that stays just two houses away, whom you can request for assistance if required.
Altre cose da evidenziare
Just 4 houses away is a home-based hairdressing saloon operated by a jovial aunty and another 4 houses away is a provision shop that sells a wide range of daily necessities.
Our home will be your Home Away from Home. So make yourself comfortable, enjoy the facilities but just like home, there are house rules.
The kitchen is available for light cooking but all utensils and crockery must be washed after use and waste disposed in covered bins to keep pests away.
Neighbours sleep early (but you don't have to) so all noisy activities should end by 11 pm.
We are able to allow for guests to hold a function like a wedding or a party only on a Sunday where the compound is freely available. :-)
I have been working in Singapore for 36 years and recently retired.
I come from a big family of 6 children who all grew up in Penang but one by one left, either to pursue further education or work and set up home elsewhere. But we never, ever thought of selling this Penang house which gave us such fond memories. And I would like our guests to enjoy the same happy feeling staying in our guesthouse.
Homestays add value to one's travel because of the interaction with the locals and living like one in their home and immersed in the community. This is where you experience their culture first hand. I myself have been on several homestays while overseas since I was first introduced by my daughter during my trip to Europe. Now is my chance to extend my hospitality and create for my guests the wonderful memories of a homestay.
