My husband and I met our daughter who's been travelling throughout Asia and thought an apartment would give us more room than sharing a hotel room as we'd done previously in Georgetown.
The apartment was easily found by our taxi driver and there was a very smooth and warm welcome and checkin.
The apartment had everything we required and more besides. We didn't have to buy any staples such as loo roll, wash powder detergent etc as it was all provided. There was also a starter pack of tea and coffee, a few snacks and some fruit. This exceeded my expectations and really enhanced our stay.
The pool was lovely with good loungers and there was never a time when there was no lounger available. There's a handy shop and a small cafe open all hours or so it seemed.
It was an easy walk to the beach and to town. There was also the additional bonus of the dusky leaf monkeys in the trees by the apartment and two really good local street vendors who's food was delicious and cheap.
I would thoroughly recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Batu Ferringhi.
This was our first trip to Penang, and it turned out to be quite a wonderful stay.
We were travelling from Kuala Lumpur and travelled by the Aeroline bus which was quite a good experience. Though the bus stop was a bit away from the place, the cabbie found it quite easily, and we had no trouble on that aspect.
The place has a wonderful view of the sea and is very easily connected to other places in Penang by the bus which stops just outside.
Fully airconditioned, very comfortable... The bedrooms are a bit on the smaller side, but hey... it was not detrimental to our comfort.
Susie was a wonderful host. Very helpful and we got a warm welcome.
