That is what you would feel upon arrival - it's like arriving in a favorite vacation home. :)
We did not intend to stay here (although we had initially made contacts while looking around for a place) but had to transfer at the last-minute because of a horrible experience in another hotel in Tanah Rata. Fortunately, Gerard promptly responded to confirm that there was a cancellation, which we can avail of.
And it was indeed a blessing in disguise that we had to transfer on the 2nd night because we had found a 'treasure' in Cameron Highlands. Gerard's Place is tastefully furnished, clean, comfortable, and owned/managed by a couple who do not make you feel that you are just a source of business for them. Gerard and Jay are certainly perfect fits in the hotel business, and more than that, genuinely caring people who understands travelers.
As travelers, we do not mind simple accommodations. Sometimes we stay in luxurious places and sometimes, in simple ones. But always, one thing that makes us remember a place is not how soft the beds were or how delicious the food was (those can certainly help) but how we were treated and felt as guests. Gerard's Place treats you with trust, care, and respect.
To Gerard and Jay - thank you for accepting us even at the last minute. It had been a and c comfortable wonderful stay.
P.s. I personally liked how the whole house smells soooooo nice!
