“Simple and homely...”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

One of its kinds...!!! The hosts are really friendly and really accomodating... they emphasize on a more homely environment ... Its less than 5 mins drive from Pantai Cenang... Quite close to the airport too... Their rates are fixed all throughout the year.... No tv in the rooms.... The idea is for their guests to socialize in the common area... They have a TV there... Highspeed internet is available... It may reach up to 3mbps....Met some new people... Overall the stay was awesome... I will surely be there again... Thanks Claudia and buddies...

Room Tip: Room no 1 might not be choice unless you need a little privacy and well lit during the day. This roo...

I'm a frequent visitor of Langkawi and it was quite a surprise that I've never came across this place. The location is not too far from the hustle and bustle of cenang which is good coz you can catch up with some good sleep after that long hours of touring and partying. But if you are driving a rental car then it should not be a problem. Just be mindful that the road leading to the guesthouse is quite narrow. The surrounding is so peaceful and calm. I personally didnt want to leave the room! We took the basic room with fan and shared bathroom. The room was big (big in a sense that it is bigger than most cheap motels) and clean too. There's a private terrace with chairs to lounge around. Hanging line to hang your wet clothes/towels. And you can listen to the wind chimes that's bound to make you feel even more at ease. The shared bathroom was also clean and spacious with rain shower and plenty of hooks to hang your stuff. At the lobby there are some books and you can watch TV or just hang around with other travellers. All in all, it is a good place for friends or couples on holidays! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: If you are like me and dont mind the tropical/hot weather, fan room is adequate. If not, I'd sug...

We stayed here for 4 nights of relaxation and we're so glad that we did. It is much more peaceful than the nearby resorts and is set back from the busy road, surrounded by lovely green fields. The rooms are comfortable and very clean although there was a lot of mozzies in the shared bathroom (I would suggest the hotel leaves some repellent in there for people to use). The staff are very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the simple western breakfasts (really good muesli!). We would definitely stay again.

We felt very welcome and at home here. Claudia was very friendly and helped us a lot. Rooms were simple but new and clean, beds comfy, shower hot and we absolutely loved the little terrace in front of the room and the occasional visits of one of the Soluna-Cats. The prices are totally okay (especially the dorm price I think) and the breakfasts they offer are really good! The short walk to the beach is a bit adventurous especially at night. But if you bring a flashlight or your cell you will be totally fine.
We could even leave one of our backpacks there for our visit to Koh Lipe. We ended up staying longer than we had wanted to.
Thank you Claudia! Keep up the good work!

Stayed for two nights while staying in Penang. Traveled with 2 other friends.

Just what we were looking for. Laid-back vibe, clean and welcoming facilities, and has that rural island feel while definitely not being inaccessible to the rest of Langkawi. The management stays out of your way and is very nice. Great recommendations for renting motorbikes, where to go see beaches and waterfalls, and provided a great overall experience. They have great internet too, for anyone who needs that.

Stay here, rent some scooters, pack a picnic, and ride around the island until you find a beach of your liking (isn't that hard). You will likely be one of a dozen people on the whole beach!

Room Tip: Get AC if you can; it's humid!!

Now, the guesthouse is not visible by the roadside and the drive-way leading to it is narrow, bypassing a couple of old houses on one side and a paddy field attraction on the other side. And that was promising. As expected, our destination is a secluded establishments housing a dorm and less than 10 private rooms (each room with its own front yard) nicely surrounded with greenery. The rooms were nothing lavish, extremely basic yet very cozy. We had 2 of the double bed rooms with air-conditioner and adjacent washroom. All the rooms and the main building blended in nicely with its surrounding nature, creating a great ambience. The amenities were minimal yet sufficient and somewhat thoughtful. Though the rooms were rather bare with no decorative lamps nor television, clean towels and soap were provided. There's a TV, a fridge, rack full of books, hammocks and few sets of tables and chairs available at the common area. Guests were ensured with convenience and coziness. The guesthouse offers great views of the nature and serene atmosphere as we sit at the dining area, sipping our tea.
Staffs were very helpful and friendly. They are always ready to chat and offer advises when they are free.
We rented a car, thus location is not an issue but I suspect it'll take about 15mins walk or maybe more to the shops and beach at Pantai Cenang?
As for the complaint, there is just one, the water pressure in one of the rooms were terribly low.
Anyway, prices are affordable and for me, the stays were a great value for money. Will opt for this guesthouse again if I ever travel to Langkawi island again.

There is a really zen atmosphere in this place, you could stay here for the day without visiting Langkawi. the rooms are quite small but clean and silent. the decoration is really sweet. and the owners are really helpful to give you some advice to discover this nice island...
