Sunset Valley Holiday Houses
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We arrived late at the accommodation and Gudrun was waiting up for us. First we stayed in the Forest house. A two bedroom house. The traditional Malaysian house was open to the elements allowing the warm tropical breeze to float through. At the rear of the house was an amazing rubber plantation. Forward of the house was sunset valley rice paddy fields. We were surrounded by rocky jungle mountains. We later moved to the Field house which was more spacious with studio king bed. Both houses were more than memorable with the best ventilation we didn't even think about aircon. It was back to nature at its best along with some modern touches.

One afternoon we stood under the eaves of the hous with the warm tropical rain pouring down and drenching us and giving us a real rainwater shower. It was a little slice of paradise.

We walked to several street cafes for meals and felt safe and secure at all times. The locals were friendly and helpful with two tourists who could not speak a word of Malay.

Gudren and David were perfect hosts, helpful with great local knowledge and hints.

Highly recommended for people who want to get away from the hectic drudge of everyday life. Swap it for a heavenly escape.

Room Tip: Couples, the Field house.

We spent 6 nights in Sunset Valley last month and it was the highlight of our holiday! The first four nights were in the Forest House where we stayed with our son and partner. The Forest House was very comfortable and well set out to accommodate the four of us. We spent lots of time relaxing on the front verandah enjoying the beautiful surroundings of the tropical garden, swimming pool and rice paddies that encompass the property. It was tranquil and peaceful.
The next two nights we spent alone in the Paddy House as our son and partner returned to their home. This little cottage was delightful, airy and cozy at the same time. It was the "cutest" accommodation we have ever stayed in. It is 180 years old, magnificently designed and built and so suited to the balmy climate. We loved this little cottage and were very reluctant to leave.
Goodrun was a wonderful hostess. She made us feel very welcome and comfortable. She greeted us enthusiastically every morning when we arrived for our delicious continental breakfast. She was very helpful in guiding us in the best way to explore the Island according to our taste and interest.
Langkawi is a very pretty and peaceful Island with lots to see and great places to eat. We hired a car for the whole of our stay, but some guests quite happily did tours and were picked up by tour minibuses. Either way seems to work.
If you want to be away from the hustle and bustle, this is the place for you! We would definitely go back:-)

Our 2nd stay at Sunset Valley "Paradise"...
We needed a rest and wanted to chill out away from the city, so we remembered Sunset Valley.
We stayed in the Garden House, authentic Malay house magnificently restored overlooking the pool, beautifully manicured garden and rice field. Our friendly hosts/owners David & Gudrun made us feel welcomed and at home. Whether you just need a break or you want to visit the island and enjoy all the outdoor activities, we can surly recommend Sunset Valley for your next holiday in Langkawi. Just make sure you have a drink at the pool at sunset...

Langkawi is a beautiful island with many choices for accommodations but I highly recommend you try Sunset Valley. It’s unique style and eco friendly facility makes it an experience you won’t soon forget. Combined with its warm, friendly, generous hosts, Sunset Valley proved to be one of the best experiences we’ve had.

Room Tip: Choose the Garden House as it is the closest to the pool and BBQ area and has beautiful views of the...

We stayed at Sunset Valley on may 26 to may 30 2014. Our field house was what we always wanted. An authentic malaysian house restaured as it was long long ago. Just imagine life in a ricefield. No need for AC weather was perfect. No mosquitos . A nice swimming pool to refresh ourselves. Our hosts Gudrun and David were very friendly and helpful. A very quiet place in Langkawi to relax and enjoy nature . And if you want to hear a bit of city life just less than 15 minutes you will be in the action. We will go back if we can...thank you Gudrun and David for your hospitality.

Room Tip: All the houses have something special . You have the choice if you are alone or a family

The houses are really nice, with all modern amenities. Views are fabulous and you feel great in the middle of nature...

For us it was a bit of Bad luck... with AC not working for couple of nights and Ants got into the house and our children were full of Ant/Mosquito bites...
Do stock up on the repellents if you have children along...
The owners were helpful and tried their best to make our stay comfortable.

it is a No service apartment, be prepared to clean your own mess :)
