“A home away from home”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Lovely hosts, yummy breakfast, spacious rooms, clean and cosy. Friendly hosts, they offer tours as well, very convenient. Great view of the mountains from the aparment. Plenty of parking, in a quiet area, but yet not far from town.

We loved to stay at Do Chic Inn. We've booked for two nights and Jaycee asked us if we would like to have a Chinese dinner with them the first evening. Fortunately we agreed - the meal which Jessica had prepared was very tasty, we met a very nice English family and Jaycees parents. It was just amazing and we felt lik home from the first minute we arrived. By the way: The hostel is absolutely clean, its in a very quiet area (with friendly Japanese neighbours) and its lovely furnished. And the best: Jaycee and Jessica organise everything you need (tours, bus, laundry..). Highly recommended.

The apartment is tugged away on a little hill less than 10 mins walk from Tanah Rata centre. It's 2 lots of apartment converted into one, therefore giving much space to guests. One of the two fridges is offered to guests to store drinks/fruits. Ample of carpark space available for those travelling by car. It's walk-up apartment so be ready to climb the stairs with luggages.

Jaycee was prompt in replying emails and offered many tips for exploring Cameron. Jessica is a great cook, both breakfast n complimentary dinner (free if you stay 2 nights or more) were delicious and prepared with care.

The apartment is clean and neat, and creatively decorated. It's cosy and calm for our stay; partly because only 2 rooms were occupied. Overall, we had a good experience here.

My family and i had stayed for one night and all of us enjoy the stay very much. Jaycee really help me a lot in planning the trip at Cameron Highland where i able to visit all the MUST GO places in just 2 days time. The house environment is clean and comfortable. The location is quite strategic where just 3 to 5 minutes drive to tanah rata town area and very suitable for those who want to stay in a quiet environment. Highly recommend this homestay. .

We just stayed for one night but had a wonderful time, Jaycee and Jessica made us very welcome in their beautiful home! They booked us a tour, cooked a wonderful breakfast and even emailed us after we had left recommending places to eat in Ipoh where we were heading. The location is a little away from the centre of town but lovely and peaceful with beautiful views. Would definitely recommend.

We really enjoyed staying at Do Chic In. The owners, Jaycee and Jessica, were both very friendly hosts. They were very knowledgeable about the area and happy to answer any of our questions and tell us about Malaysian culture.

We had a different breakfast every day, all were good! The meal cooked for us on the first night was also delicious.

The property itself is clean and well maintained, and located a short walk from Tanah Rata town centre with nice views of the green highlands.

Highly recommended!

My husband and I visited the Cameron highlands for three nights, staying in the Do Chic in. We really loved the hospitality, cleanliness and helpful local knowledge from the owners. They helped us avoid the tourist traps and the traffic and we really enjoyed the hike they recommended for our last day. Jaycee really gets the differences in what locals or Europeans will like and all of her recommendations were spot on.

Within the first few hours we were planning a return trip with parents and will certainly return to Do Chic In. It's lovely to see hosts who really take pride in what they do and enjoy it.

Others have said the price is high for a budget option, but with the lovely home cooked meals, great location and local knowledge we think its excellent value for money.
