Description

The space

We rent out 3bedroom apartment that accommodate up to 6 guests. The room in question - is the small bedroom with a shared bathroom. It's simple - bed, table with a chair, aircon.. yes - there’s middle-size old-school, probably Malay-style drawers as well.
Pls dont expect to find designed furniture, marble fireplace and so on in the appartment. You'll be disappointed. It's all really simple, actually - exactly like pictured.
But we do our best to keep apartment clean and neat by european standard.

Guest access

Apart from your own lockable bedroom you can use common living room (it’s huge), kitchen, balcony (morning coffee with a seaview and cooling breeze), laundry… and corridor (there is not much to do there, though).
Swimming pool available from 9am to 9pm, GYM as well, although it’s quite basic. Underground parking for one car is for your service.

Interaction with guests

Our family lives in the next block, so we can control from our window that you don't smoke on the balcony:)
When I free I can pick you up from the bus stop – FOC. Transfer from airport $25/ jetty $20/ bus terminal $25 can be arranged by request in advance.
We’ll be dropping in once in a while to make sure you are comfortable, to answer questions, give some advice… or just bore you with our presence:)
My main job is tour guiding, so I can give you lot of info for free, and real tour for money.

The neighbourhood

Yep, the neighborhood is nice. Best in Penang - that's for sure. That's side road from main Batu Ferringhi waterfront - 10 minute walk to beach/night market/Starbucks/hawker's. At the same time it’s pretty quiet. In a walking distance: couple of famous hawker stalls to try local food, quite a few restaurants and disco bars, Hard rock café, MacDonald's, KFC..

There is also an awesome and yet little-known jungle walk right behind the condo.

Getting around

The nearest bus stop is called "Holiday Inn Resort". It's 600m (7min walk, as Qoogle says) from our condo.
15 min by bus to National Park, Butterfly farm, Tropical Spice Garden, Escape Extreme Park, Batik Museum.
Direct bus to Airport, Jetty, Komtar Bus Terminal, GeorgeTown.


House Rules

Respect yourself, respect others!
No smoking, even on the balcony/corridor. The only place to smoke – outdoor. No drug, no partying, no pets are allowed. No shoes in the apartment except house slippers.

I had a very pleasant stay. Andriy is very helpful and the apartment is nice and comfortable. Internet was working well. There are a few eateries at 5-10 minutes walk from the house, and the main road, where there is the bus stop and daily night market, is about 10 minutes walk. Overall a good place and location.

I stayed at Andriy's place in the lone wolf room for 3 weeks while working online at the same time. I met some cool people there and had a very smooth stay. Eden Seaview is a good place for a quiet and relaxing stay.

The eighth floor location is quiet and commands great views of the area and out to sea. You must be prepared to share the condo with other travellers. Hopefully you will be lucky to make new friends in the process. The host is not at the unit all the time but is very responsive non the less and is also a tour guide for foreign visitors so is very knowledgable about the sights in the area. There were some interruptions of Wifi but otherwise everything was smooth and easy!

A simple and nice, cozy place to stay. Too bad i just stay for one night. Definitely next time I will stay here if I come to this area. Andriy is a friendly and nice host.

Clean and spacious house with all basic amenities you would need. There's even a pool and pool floats you can borrow from the house. Living room is big and airy if you open the balcony doors really wide. The location is maybe slightly far from Georgetown but the Batu Ferringhi area is quite nice with lots of places to eat and bars and a night market each night and a big beach too. It's an area with lots of expats so don't expect things to be cheap.

I had a very pleasant extended 9-nights stay at Andriy's delightful condo. The room, condo, location, apartment facilities & condo facilities were exactly as advertized by Andriy. The condo is on elevated land. The condo apartment unit is on a high floor. Thus, the sea view, condo pool view, from the balcony and lounge area is excellent. One can chill at the balcony, or on the comfortable lounge leather set, sipping wine or coffee, reading a book, all day, & then chill further poolside in the evening. Andriy is an excellent host. He was helpful, cheery, pleasant, chatty, easy-going, a pleasure to engage. My check-in/out was a breeze. He gave good tips on sites to visit, transport, F&B, etc. There was excellent parking for my rented car. The apartment was kept very clean. The cleaner came in regularly to keep it shipshape. He took the trouble to get me maps of hiking trails in the Batu Ferringhi & adjacent village Telok Bahang areas. The Penang National Park, at Telok Bahang (NW corner of Penang island) has 4 fantastic rainforest trails, leading to spectacular hill summits, pristine beaches, & a quaint headland hilltop public-accessible lighthouse (Muka Head Lighthouse). Also nearby Taman Rimba Telok Bahang (Telok Bahang Forest Park) is the starting point for the longest hike trail in Penang: Taman Rimba Telok Bahang to Bukit Laksamana (aka Eagles Point) to Western Hill to Penang Hill. I highly recommend Andriy's condo apartment if you want a cool fuss-free chillout place, if you like hiking in rainforest trails, the beach, & coastal village life.

Andriy User Profile

We are Ukrainian family currently living in Penang. You will mostly see me (Andriy). My wife is full time teacher in International school and my son – made in Malaysia boy - spends most of his time crawling on the floor and opening all drawers he can reach (but the changes come swiftly, soon he’ll be chasing girls in the playground, I’m sure of it).
We started our AIRBNB by helping our friends to find apartment for the holiday here in Penang. Then other friends asked to help… and now we keep this apartment, renting it out here with the occasional breaks for the friends.
I’m writing this after 5 month of AIRBNB experience and from what I had – I love it. Most of our guests were not just OK – they were awesome. I remember Justin from US was cleaning pool off leaves after night storm, Chris from New Zealand teaching me how starters in a modern lamps work, Darta from Latvia spent 1 month in my place, leaving it spotless clean after departure. There was Frenchman Michal, who turned out to be Ukrainian, there was Neil, who survived shower from aircon and left 5 stars review. And sure, I remember a great British couple who pocketed my Lonely Planet, I would surely host them again.
About myself:
I can’t say I’m really social, but I like most of the people. I find most of them interesting.
I try to live a healthy life, but must admit my coffee addiction.
I’m also sport addicted – can’t live without tennis, and I’m reasonably good in badminton, ping-pong, frisbee, cycling.
The best thing done in my life - I married my wife. After that goes lot of boyish things like 100km run, climbing winter mountains, cycling in Spain and across Malaysia and so on.
