I loved it.

Nostalgia, peacefulness & friendly staffs.
I was very pleased. I loved the kampung feel it gave me. When I first arrived I immediately felt that I'm right back at my kampung. The homey feeling this place exerts was wonderful. Christine was very helpful and friendly. The bed was comfy and air conditioning was provided if you can't stand the heat. Wasn't sure whether breakfast is included or not though. If you're in Penang, please roam around to get food, you know why you're there in the first place. All in all I'm giving this place a solid 4/5 just for the aesthetics and environment. Will definitely come here again next time when I plan my solo travel. Cheers,

Best experience in Penang!

The chew family are beautiful people, the actual village is beautiful and charming
We were overwhelmed by the warming welcome of the chew family. The village is stunning and such a authentic experience. Highly recommended! We feel privileged to have met the chew family and stayed in their home. Miss chew the organiser is fabulous!!

Unique and great experience

The host,the environment and people there
The host(Mrs Chew) was really friendly and hospitable. Make you feel at home immediately :) the house has a little balcony corner that oversees the sea and able to watch the beautiful sunrise. It was indeed a wonderful experience of living In such kampong. Location was great many good food around and is also nearby the main area where all the street art were. A shopping mall is also nearby(first avenue) where you can get more entertainment like kbox and movie and some shopping. Especially love the locals there at chew jetty. Always smiling and ever so genuine. We left with a heavy heart cause we gonna miss them. Strongly recommend to someone who are open to having a different experience. May not be the most physically comfortable environment but def Smth much different and what other hotels cannot offer. Looking forward to stay here again!

Great location!

Location and value for money
Great stay but as some other reviewers have mentioned, be warned about the smell of the jetty. The drainage smell can be terrible first thing in the morning however, it is negligible when the tide is higher. The nice quiet environment in the evening and night makes up for the smell in my opinion and a very good way to experience something different. Otherwise, great location as well as it is walking distance to all the main streets (for food and sight seeing) in Georgetown.
Julian T. Families with young children Malaysia, November 30, 2014

Felt very homely as the owner treated us like a family. The home stay has all the necessities, and convenience. A totally different experience in a positive manner.

Kai S. Groups Malaysia, November 16, 2014

location, hospitality, seaside
Overall satisfied. Only the price slightly high given the very basic conditions of the rooms and only one bathroom when there are more than 6 people staying in when it's fully occupied.
