“Best holiday ever”
Reviewed 8 January 2009

Pondok Keladi is a great place for a holiday. Where else can you watch little boys skimming up palms and throwing down coconuts, see and hear monkeys chattering to each other as they leap from branch to branch, and marvel at eagles building their nests high above the ground. All can be viewed from this six room guest house run by hospitable Dee and his partner Marc.
During our two months – with a break of two weeks in Australia – we attended the Malaysian wedding of Dee’s cousin, met and partied with people of all ages from Australia, Holland, Canada and a curious couple from Germany who were so keen on the place they moved into a tent in the grounds when their room was needed for new guests. Yes, Dee makes you feel like a guest at a house party. He will help you hire a car, advise on the many restaurants on the island and even allow you to access your emails on his computer.
Very reasonably priced, savings can be made by using the communal kitchen to make a cup of coffee, cook a whole meal or heat up an Indian take-away. The roof topped open area is a great place for meeting people with the added attraction of friendly dogs, Lucy, Ben, Reggie and curiously named Gadget, who delights in eating everything including the occasional hot curry.
Terima kasih, Paul dan Leigh

Hello Dear travellers, My wife Sarah and I are on the road for about three weeks now, from BKK to Chiang Ray, thru Chiang May, and from there we moved afther a lot of Internet rechearch to Langkawi. We discovered Pondok Keladi and several comments about this guesthouse here on Tripadvisor, and so we decide to go for it, and afther a few E-mails up en down, a date was set, 13/11/2008 to arrive. Happy for this service of the house, Marc came to pick us up at the Airport of Langkawi and within 20 minuts we arrived at Pondok K. We could hartly believe our eyes...... only 200 mtr away from the main road, into a small road, direction Forest, a real Little paradise, quiet, green, well maintained, Coconut trees, a Central little building with cushions to relax, some tables, Computer, kitchen and this Garded by the house dogs. No fear, they are there for your protection sayd Dee second manager of the house, with a big smile on his face to welcome us. He showed us our Room, and the kitchen telling us that EVERYTHING in the kitchen could be used as well what was in the fridge....... we realy where hit by the hospitality of Marc and Dee, the perfekt an VERRY clean room with big bed, big bathroom and toilet that can survive all Euro standards inspection. Afther the first visit, we wanted immediatly rent a motorbike, and again Marc proposed us to drive us to rent the bike, verry helpfull also in showinh us the secret little local restaurants, nice places for a drink and so we where on the road. To keep a long story short...... we stayed for 4 nights, and afther a call from friends on tour in Thailand also we had to leave earlier than we planned, and we felt like we left friends behind in this little paradise. But if You read this Dee and or Marc, You can be sure we will be back. Now for our fellow travellers, if You are realy like to find a quit, nice and clean place for Your langkawy stay, Pondok Keladi is the big Tip we wish to recommend, only 5 minutes from the beach, from all the restaurants shops and Bars, and a nice Basis to travel Langkawi Island by Bike or Car if You prefer. Some pictures will be placed in here as soon as possible also to show how beautifoul parradise can be, and lets hope that litlle Guesthouses like Pondok K. will exist in the future so we can continue to travel this magnificent place on earth.
Dee and Marc, Sarah and I,Jose, from Germany where very happy and lucky to know you and this wonderfull Guesthouse.
Hope to see You Both Soon

Jose and Sarah
