Unique place at the beach
This homestay offers a hidden gem between all skyscrapers of George Town and surrounding area. You can take a dip in the sea and shower off in your room, or explore Penang island as you wish. Parking is easy in front of the hotel which makes this a good pick for the traveller who has his own wheels.

So so only for the money you pay
the only reason I stay here because it is nearest to Bayview which I had a event to attend at that time. For the money you pay you get a small room, just clean and tidy enough for sleeping, and the aircond is good. Also you park your vehicle inside the house compound so really good for superbiker like me. Nothing much can complaint on, but if happened you are the only one staying in that huge house, it can be quite creepy at night.

A good choice for family trip in Penang
Host is very friendly and responsive, the room is very big for six guests, cleanliness is well-maintained and strategically situated in Tanjung Bungah.

Not Value for money
Hotel is not at all worth the money you pay. No staff to take care during your stay. No hotel is located near by for having food. Even they have not cleaned my room at all (I stayed for two nights). The rooms are quite small. The Photos showing in the website are not exactly what you can see in the real.
