Unique”
A wonderful experience to live above the sea. A warm welcome from Mr Chew offering oranges and cold drink after which we were lucky enough to be the only guests so it was like our own home. Simple but comfy. Nice views and refreshing breeze sitting on the porch overlooking the jetty and people flowing by. Thanks Siew.

Once in a lifetime experience”
This is a really unique place, house is completely constructed in the sea, comple wodden structure, easy to access place, host and her dad are very friendly, guided us from minute we have stepped in till we have completed our trip throughout Malaysia. Sea water level differs by every 4 hours. You can use washing machine also. Hosts have provided a variety of snacks and fruits, and bread jam and butter too. feels like its your own home in a different country. value for money.

Historical & Cultural Icon”
George Town is an amazing historical city & within it one of the most historical locations is the Clan Jetties.It is most intriguing to be able to stay in a place of such historical significance. Additionally, I enjoyed sitting on the little verandah over the water looking out across the channel to the mainland. It is a beautifully peaceful way to spend an evening after a full day exploring George Town & Penang. The location is excellent, being right in the heart of George Town. Everything is within an easy walk. Across the road is a very good food Hawkers market. There are food stalls right in front of the Jetty. The hostess and her Papa are wonderfully helpful and such enjoyable company. She took us to a night market one night & was constantly assisting with advising & helping to organise interesting activities & helping to solve our travel problems. It is a basic home stay but comfortable and with adequate facilities and much charm. We will return.

A home on the water ”
There is no words for this place, it's breathtaking. Chew Jetty felt like a home during my half year trip. I would definitely come back anytime, close to food corner and the Georgetown city Centre. I loved it!!!

A completely unique experience”
Very friendly people. A location that has to be seen to be believed. One of the most unique hotel experiences you'll ever have: let alone for $30 a night. I live in Penang and even I may book a room there again, just because. You haven't done Penang until you've done My Chew Jetty Homestay.

The place has a unique vibe, you get to live by the water. The Chew Jetty feels like a tiny Chinese village. The hosts are very nice and kind. You are in good company.

Very special location”
It's somethings outstanding to stay in a jetty! I'd do it again. It's not quite ecological, the toilet sewage goes directly in the ocean. The Jetty and the rooms are very simple and basic, but the experience is definitely worth it. The Chew Jetty is the most busy jetty in Penang, but after 9 p.m. it's very peaceful and quiet. We loved to stay there. We got the keys from the owner and gave it back to a relative, but had no other contact to the owner.

Best stay ever !”
What a wonderful gem I found at Mr Chows home. The bed was very comfortable fan and aircon. The breakfast was lovley and the view on the wooden terace was ever changing. I was welcomed and left to do my own thing which was great. I stayed for eight days but it wasn't enough time towith see all the sights in amazing George Town. The location is fantastic - right near the free bus service and bus station. The street food and the restaurants serve the best food ever, the weather s hot and the people are friendly. Book this for at least four days - or end up regretting that you have not seen it all !!!!

Like i back to my childhood house, is like a home. Live on the sea and night chat with friend together sit outside the chairs provided. The sound of the sea and the wind. I'm lucky that i can saw the shadow and the sound of dolphin. The end of the Jetty Chew, I'm able to the "fluorescent" fish in the sea. <3

Perfect for those who understand what it is.”
What a wonderful way to experience the Jetty life and get to know more from a local family. The facility is not luxurious, but clean and comfortable for those with a bit of an adventurous spirit. An short walk from the city center with many great food options. We had a slight issue with check-in, but a cousin nearby was happy to help. Everyone was very friendly. Recommended!
