We love the place and it is kept exceptionally authentic. The home itself is famous because it is a site for one of the mural paintings famous on the island. The owner is friendly and information on what to see and eat is provided free of charge. Basic necessities provided and rooms come with air-conditioner. Hot water heater, shampoo, shower liquid and clean towels are provided as well. Most importantly the place is clean and comfortable. Sitting on veranda and looking out at the sea is a bliss although it was raining when we were there. Take your time visiting the surrounding areas at the jetty. The place is conveniently located in Georgetown and many tourist spots in Georgetown are located within walking distance. Recommended for a once in your lifetime experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Immerse yourself in a unique cultural experience, 'living like a local' in one of George Town's few true homestays, in a family's rustic wooden home on stilts at the Chew Jetty, a unique heritage community nestled on the city's waterfront. Right on the water’s edge of the heritage city of George Town, the Chew Jetty is a unique settlement consisting of 88 rustic wooden family homes linked by a long walkway, starting from the shore and jutting out onto the water. In existence since the 1880s, and one of seven remaining clan jetties, the Chew Jetty is unique in that the residents all share the same Chinese surname. Ours is a wooden house fronting the main walkway, roughly in the middle of the Chew Jetty. You will be staying in 1 of 5 rooms in our family house, out of which only 3 rooms are for homestay guests. You will be getting a cozy DOUBLE ROOM in the middle section of the house, with a small window on its side. The room is air-conditioned, and also has a wall fan, and is furnished with a queen-sized bed. We have a bathroom shared by all in the house, and it comes with instant hot shower and sitting toilet. Our living room, dining hall and our back and side open decks are available for your use. ... more less
