“A nice spot in Langkawi.”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

A nice place. The rooms were kept spotless. The owners are very helpful and gave good advice. You will need a scooter if you stay here, but then you will need some kind of transport to see the whole island anyway. Breakfast (a cheap extra) is self service apart from the eggs cooked to order and is well worth it. Recommended if you don't want the bright lights of the beach area.

We have been here only for one stormy night and we felt at home. The rooms are nice and tidy and have everything you need on a trip. The service was outstanding helping us rent a scooter as well as bringing our luggage to the ferry terminal 20 minutes drive free of charge.

A perfect place for your stay on langkawi only a bit far away from the beach and restaurants.

Budget accommodation at its best!! Just everything we wanted! Beautifully clean chalet, lovely hosts with as much local information as you request at any time of day yet not in your face, short scooter ride away from Cenang Beach (our wonderful hosts dropped us at scooter hire ten minutes after we arrived), lovely brekky with yummy local fresh fruit and fantastic location with cows, water buffalo, fruit trees, local houses and people, rice paddies etc all around us! Just wonderful! We love Langkawi! Sally n Geoff L, Perth WA

Stayed here for 3 nights. Good Value for money. Breakfast was good and got a chance to taste few Malai fruits. Owners helped us in renting a car and they also arranged for Island hopping.
Positives:
1. Anytime Owners are at your service
2. Neat toilet and owner cleans it everyday
3. They change towels & bed sheets everyday
4. Good breakfast

Room Tip: Near to airport. However 10 mins car ride from Pentai cenang beach.

Stayed here for 5 nights and had a very relaxed comfortable stay. The owner were helpful and friendly. The room was big enough and clean, the bed was comfortable, we struggled with sharing 1 blanket, however it did not bother us that much to ask for another. The breakfast was good, the eggs superb.
As others have said you do need transport, but this was arranged on the first day of our stay and although the car looked a bit (aged), it mostly worked and got us arround, cheeply in airconditioned comfort.
If you want a change from a beach holiday on Langkawi then this is a great place to stay.

We had an awesome stay at the box chalet. We felt very welcome right away.
Mas was very friendly and we loved just sitting down with her for a chat.
Mas and her husband were very hospitable and arranged all our tours and a car rental for us.
The breakfast was delicious and the rooms were spacious, nice and clean.
Very good value for money!

The Box chalet is very good value for money clean pleasant accommodation around a lush courtyard. The air conditioning was quiet not much natural light in the room. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly and the breakfasts were good . Transport is essential for this location which is convenient for most places on the island especially the airport however car hire is cheap and the bike hire is free at the box chalet
