My house is very special (a bit quirky) and its location is unique. With five temples, a mosque, art galleries, batik beading, countless restaurants & cafes within two minutes walk this is truly the beat in the heart of George Town culture.

Descrizione

My house is very special (a bit quirky) and its location is unique. With five temples, a mosque, art galleries, batik beading, countless restaurants & cafes within two minutes walk this is truly the beat in the heart of George Town culture.

Centre of the Unesco Heritage Zone. A lovingly renovated Chinese shop house dating to about 1840 and comprising approximately 3000 square foot over two floors. Perfect location for the George Town Festival and the Literary Festival held in November. Situated in the centre of the UNESCO heritage zone 'Little India' and 'Chinatown' are both within easy walking distance. Plenty of restaurants and bars close by. Property is possibly the biggest one bedroom place in town - Very secure front door with video entry phone and coded access. Ground floor dining room, fully fitted and equipped kitchen, guest loo and outside shower. First floor huge sitting room, large double bedroom with king size bed, dressing room and shower room with rain shower (cold water only in the basin). Great fusion of original and modern styles. Fans throughout and air con in sitting room and bedroom.
Kitchen: Electric oven, microwave, double fridge/freezer, wine chiller, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, two ceramic hobs, extractor fan, all appliances, two ceiling fans. Plenty of cookery books for those who tire of the amazing restaurants within easy walking distance. Glass door to guest loo and outside shower and outside drying area. Glass brick wall separates kitchen from outside space.
Serving hatch to dining room.
Dining room - amazing table which can seat 12 comfortably, ceiling fans.
First floor: Huge sitting room with cream leather L shaped sofas, ceiling fans and air con. Flat screen 54" monitor with Apple TV and Netflix, or choose from about 600 DVDs. Glass topped desk; wifi broadband. Masses of books - please replace! Few games, cards and dominoes.
Great sized double bedroom with king size bed and TV monitor/DVD player, bedside lights, air con and ceiling fan.. Glass door to huge dressing room with plenty of hanging rail space, and leading to bathroom with rain shower, loo and washbasin. There is a small terrace off the bathroom more for fresh air than anything else. Glass brick wall separates the terrace from the dressing room.
Will give you the telephone number of trusted taxi driver. Bus stop nearby - good but slow service. Easy walking distance to ferry for Butterworth and railway station.
The staircase from ground to first floor is typical of this type of architecture - straight and steep with no security gate, so this really is an adult property and not suitable for young children. I can consider an extra person sleeping on the sofa on request, but remember the second toilet is on the ground floor so in the night it may be better to creep through the bedroom to the main bathroom.

Guests have access to everything in the house apart from the locked second bedroom which houses all my stuff when I am not there.

I am normally away from Penang when I accept bookings as this is where I live when I am there myself. However I am only a phone call or email away at any time and unless I am on a plane or out of coverage I will reply within as short a time as possible.

The neighbourhood is a wonderful melting pot of characters. Every time you leave the house you are sure of a greeting from a neighbour or passer by. There are lots of museums and art galleries and more pop up almost daily. Kapitan Indian restaurant is open 24/7 and less than five minutes walk.

The trishaws pass by the door of the house all the time, and if you are so inclined you can hire one of them to pedal you round the area, or try a bicycle, or even a tandem! The bus service of Penang is excellent, albeit a bit slow and the taxis are numerous and reasonable. Best to call for a taxi in advance as it can be hot waiting on the corner. Jaya is my preferred driver. Either book him (+ and mention my name) to collect you from the airport or buy a voucher and take a recommended taxi when you arrive.

This is an old house and the floorboards are the original exposed, both in the sitting room and as the ceiling to the ground floor - so they creak a bit as they expand and shrink with the humidity. There are little shops and cafes opening on an almost daily basis. and if you walk the other way towards the jetties, there is a lovely bakery with fresh custard tarts, on the corner of In Victoria Street where Ruins of Victoria has recently opened offering bar, fine dining and live music, next door to that is China House - justly claimed as having the best cakes in town, they offer cafe and fine dining eating and have live music at the 'Canteen' at the back - try to catch Viv or Raggy - both great singers. Just opposite my house Eidelweiss serves local and Swiss food; just up the road is the Javi cafe restaurant serving wonderful vegetarian and meat dishes, Not worth stocking the fridge here, easier and probably cheaper to eat on the hoof! Remember to go to Sam's Batik for terrific clothes - and ask for a discount!!

Sandie's house is really nice and very comfortable. Exactly as we had hoped for after seeing the pictures.

Sandie's place is a true gem. Far and away my favorite airbnb in Malaysia. I only wish I could have spent more time there. It's an ideal place to rest, read, relax, cook, and explore Penang from.

We had a great time in Georgetown. Sandie's house is extremely interesting, with many unusual pieces of furniture and art. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, but I have to admit that we didn't actually cook in it as eating out is both cheap and delicious. The location of the house is perfect and in the middle of a buzzing and lively area. Although we didn't meet Sandie, her friend was on hand, should we have needed any help. We would definitely stay there again if we return to Georgetown. Thanks Sandie!

Patrick and I have just returned from 10 days at Sandie's wonderful house in the heart of George Town. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect location ... and we certainly were delighted with the house itself. Sandie has gone to a huge amount of trouble to create a home-from-home for her visitors, and it couldn't have been more comfortable, well-equipped or beautifully furnished. It's quaint - being a very old shophouse - but we loved the experience of being above a shop..... guess this is what it must have been like in "the olden days". Although Sandie was overseas, she arranged for us to be welcomed to the house and she herself kept in contact with us to make sure we had everything we needed. We can't recommend Sandie's house enough. Don't even THINK of staying anywhere else when you visit Penang!
