Firefly Villa
Ranked #1 of 12 Kuala Selangor B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 November 2013 via mobile

We arrived late at the villa but warmly welcomed by the host, en. Apandi. Fortunately the Google Map has shown the right direction despite the loacation is quite remote. At the car park area, we could see the Balinese-style entrance. We found the room spacious & toilet was very clean. The living area is very decorative and nice. For Muslims, there is a prayer room that could accommodate 7-8 pax per prayer. The best part for kids is the pool which is very clean. I would suggest this villa for small scale family outing or business retreat.

Stayed: November 2013, travelled with family

one night stay for my daughter graduation..a short one but the couple took extra effort in preparing breakfast as early as 6.30am just to make sure that we attend the big day with our stomach filled with delicious food.

We weren't too sure what to expect but were delighted we chose firefly villa from the moment we arrived. We came by bus from KL city which took 2 hrs and was an arduous trip on an old bus which stopped many times but what a relief to arrive here. Aphandi and his wife welcomed us so genuinely, our room was cool, immaculately clean and we loved the Malaysian furniture and decor.
Apandi organised a taxi to take us out in the evening to a seafood restaurant nearby the river which was fabulous, then we visited the monkeys at mulawati hill and then a firefly boat trip, both short and enjoyable, then home to a comfortable, cool and quiet nights sleep.
Breakfast is nice and then a walk around the lovely tropical grounds. Aphandi then offered to take us for a drive to see the local rice paddy farming area which was very interesting. We were then able to spend the rest of the day resting and swimming in the gorgeous clean swimming pool, taking advantage of a late checkout. Aphandi and his wife even bought some lunch to our room mid afternoon...so thoughtful. Aphandi had then organised a taxi transfer direct to the airport... A bit more expensive but so much better than returning to KL on that bus. We are very appreciative of our stay at Firefly villa and only wish we had come here straight from the airport for both nights and would gladly miss out on going into KL city in favour of coming straight here.

Room Tip: Our queen size room was ideal, spacious, cool with aircon and ceiling fan. Overlooking pool but perf...

We arrived in Kuala Selangor by Bus from KL which dropped us off at the Petronas Servo. Mr. Aphandi told us to phone him when getting there which we did and he promptly picked us up in his car. Mr. Aphandi had a taxi organized to take us to several places of interest including the firefly park. Breakfast was excellent, even so it was Ramadan and our host was fasting! The staff was very unobtrusively busy doing their work, you didnt see them, but everything was taken care off and the rooms were spotless. A nice place to spend a night.

This is my second time stay in this villa, the first was on May 24-25 2013, the reason why I was there again was obviously the first stay was very satisfactory. This time round, I brought my parents along. Another thumbs up because we found another thing amazing about this homestay. They have "Astro on Demands Channels (all of them)". We were sitting in our room for some TV programs, trying our luck, we switch to AOD channels and they have it! Amazing. If you think you just want to spend more time in the room just to relax, this is the place, well equipped, clean, and very friendly host (Apandi).

Room Tip: Family rooms has 2 queen size beds and yet still so spacious. Very good for a family stay.

The villa is very difficult to find, the navigation did not recognize the street, the map which the owner sent to me was totally confusing. The "King Room with jacuzzi" in reality was a room with so insufficient lights, that in the evening we were almost in darkness, could not read anything, find anything.... there was no internet access in the room, despite the fact that the owner assured me that there was one. In was only in the dinning room - which is common for all the guests.Jacuzzi has only a cold water - so it is a bit useless.
From 4am we were listening to the screeming cocks and cars passing by close to our windows.
The owners were nice, but the overall experience was bad.
We paid for the "King room" almost the same price as for Impiana KLCC, which was by faaaaar better!

Warmly welcomed by a very friendly couple( owners), we enjoyed staying in this beautifully decorated villa. The service is great, The breakfast delicious. This lovely place is a nice stay over for a couple of nights. If we travel again to Malaysia we sure will go back.
