We had a great stay in the house. It is a simple house, quite spacious, the location is very central for walking and discovering the city of Georgetown. Walkable to great food in little India and on Chilia Road. There was even a Chinese opera show in the road one night. Joyce replied very quickly, often within minutes to all questions we had, and was very helpful. We would recommend this place if you want to stay in the heart of the town.

Joyce apartment was well located in the centre on George Town close to everything in George Town. Eating and going to cafes and small bars in the evening was very easy as they were right on our doorstep. Very well organised with tips ect well laid out. Nice, clean and modern. We had an issue with the internet not working properly and this was a constant issue which was a bit of a disappointment. Also the apartment was fitted with CCTV inside in all areas apart from inside the shower and toilet and the bedrooms which I found very uncomfortable and had I know this before booking I would have not booked Joyce place. Everything was visible from stepping out of the shower or toilet cubical which made it extremely disturbing coming in and out of the shower ect. Also one of the showers had a issue with its pressure and working properly as the pressure and water would not warm up. Next to the accommodation there is a small cafe playing live music in the evenings which can be heard from the last bedroom. Everything else was well organised but the internet issue and CCTV surprise made it a bit uncomfortable. One other point I would mention as a general tip is that when looking for an apartment in Penang it is important to decide if you would like to stay near the beach or in the town as the traveling back and forth is a bit tiring. All in all was a clean and well organised stay.

Response from Joyce:
Hi Martin, Thanks for dropping a review but I would like to clarify few things. 1) As for the CCTV, I have actually stated in the airbnb profile, please read it again. And to be exact the CCTV is for security purposes, that the viewing points are the main entrance door, living room, second floor walkway, and back lane of the house. There is no way to view right inside the toilet/bathroom or bedroom. If u feel uncomfortable, u can inform me, and we are allow you to switch it off, the cctv on and off button just right down the aircond switch button. I previously have a muslim guests, they knew about the CCTV even before they place the booking, they ask if they can switch it off during their stay, and i allowed them to switch it off. Please don't spread false info and judge when you don't even ask me and let me have a chance to explain. If u ask me during your stay, I can even show u the viewing point from my cellphone. And to let u know, I don't even bother to view the CCTV during my guests stay. 2) As for the Wifi, So far no one has issue that they can't connect to the wifi, sometimes it may be a bit slow when there are too many users at once. So far we have installed the maximum speed internet for the area. We are waiting for the area to upgrade further their wifi speed to provide guests better internet connection. 3) As for the shower water pressure, there are few water pressure level for u to manually adjust the level, the button just right under the water heater. If the hot water not warm up, u can always inform me, and i will ask someone to repair it on the same day. 4) As for the small cafe (3 houses away), they usually close by 10pm. FYI, One of the room (first room near the staircase), One of your friend have dirty my bed sheet and pillow case with her lipsticks all over it. Even the laundry shop can't do anything with it because the stains just can't wash away.

Great place for larger groups of travelers! Located in a quiet (but safe) neighbourhood, this place is about 10-15 minutes walk to food places, cafes and street art. Love the fact that the host really thought out her facilities and design for larger groups (hair dryer in each room, plenty of toilet and shower cubicles and electrical sockets, etc). Definitely recommended!

Our stay in the house was really great. Joyce provided information for a smooth self check-in process. The house suited the needs of our group (8 adults) quite well. It was extremely centrally located - just a block away from the bars on Love Lane and the Chulia Street night market. You can easily walk anywhere in the heritage area of Georgetown within 5-10 minutes. I would definitely recommend the house as a convenient and comfortable place for a large group.

Lovely host. Joyce is very friendly, and she gives very detailed and clear instructions on getting there and things to lookout for in the house. Living space is great for group activities, while the 5 rooms provide enough privacy when needed. Kitchen is well equipped for simple food preparation. Location is top notch, sitting right in the middle of the food zone ! Nearest night market is a stone throw away ! There is even a RO water vending machine nearby to get clean drinking water if you are not comfortable with the tap water. Good Wi-Fi coverage throughout the place although bandwidth could be higher. Highly recommended for small groups.
