The space

The double-storey terrace house is located in an upscale neighbourhood area with a quiet surrounding and quite near the sea at Tanjung Bungah, Penang. It is within walking distance to the bus-stop (public transport), and eateries that sells local food such as roti canai, teh tarik, nasi kandar, tim sum and delicious hawker food. The Tanjung Bungah market is about 5 minutes drive from here, and it takes only 15-20 minutes to reach Gurney Drive or Batu Ferringhi. Places of interest nearby include Strait Quay, Gurney Drive, Batu Ferringhi, Pearl Hill, Botanical Gardens, temples and hawker centres.

The house is clean and spacious and multiple cabinets and shelves are provided for storage. It has a living hall, a dining hall, a kitchen, two bathrooms and 3 bedrooms. The living hall and all of the bedrooms are equipped with air-conditioned. No worries if you are into cooking, as most of the kitchen utensils and appliances are available in the kitchen. There is a queenside bed (and pillows and blankets - will be available upon check-in) in all of the bedrooms. In the 3rd room, the mattress is laid on the floor. Each room can accommodate about 3-4 persons, and extra pillows and blankets will be provided for extra guests upon request. The two bathrooms are equipped with water-heater as well.

If you are driving, the car can be parked at the porch in front of the house. The gate is remote-controlled, so just ensure that the car is parked properly before closing the gate.

You (and/or your family) can just check-in with luggage and live just like ordinary Penangites do. You can stroll outside the house, watch TV and relaxing in the spacious living hall, do your own cooking, and make some coffee, as well as do the washing and drying of clothes. Broadband service is not available at this moment. However, there are several broadband service packages offered by some telecoms for travellers. Another option is to go to nearby places where WIFi is available.

If there is a need for anything (from your arrival in Penang until departure), we are glad to help. You may be living far, but it is a home away from home.
