Relaxation has never been more within your grasp than at the private beachfront in a traditional Malay 'kampung' style house located by the seaside of Tanjung Rhu. Choose to wake up in paradise, to the sound of the ocean lapping against the shore on a hidden private 1-acre land set in lushes green background and frilled with various species of birds including eagles, hornbills and many others. It is an ideal escape for a romantic getaway or for a small family retreat away from urbanization.

Hi Masha, thank you for your review. We hope you enjoyed your one night stay at Sri Ketapang. We do market ourselves as a "beachfront" chalet, rather than "on the beach" like other properties along Tanjung Rhu beach. We have also provided a picture on our page to give you and other guests a more accurate picture of what to expect in relevance to the distance from the house to the beach. However, privacy is something we can truely offer as compared to other on the beach properties. With the 180 degrees of uninterrupted view of the beach along with being the only beachfront property on the 1 acre land beside my house, and located at the very end of the beach, you can say you have the beach to yourselves on some days. However if you would like the stay closer to the beach, we have 2 upcoming units that is literally just 10 steps away from the edge of the water. As for the lawn, I do apologize for the slightly long grass growth. I had only arrived after being overseas for a month, hence why the lawn wasn't mowed. Rest assure the lawn has received much love and care since. We hope yu come.back and stay longer with us to enjoy the ambiance in the near future.

The accommodation is very clean and comfortable: good A/C, a super cosy bed, a fan and fridge that work well and run quietly. It is definitely easy to get a good night's sleep here, and you can hear the sound of the ocean waves at night. The wifi isn't super strong or reliable, b…

Hi Jason, thank you for your feedback and I'm glad you enjoyed the house. I guess during this raining season (April to September) we do get a lot of storms and unfortunately the day that you arrived and the past 3 consecutive days before your arrival there were a at least 3-4 storms which has lead to the washed up of garbage on the Tanjung Rhu beach. Of course this does not happen very often even during the raining season. The gush of wind and rain will have it's day and then its usually calm again. But thankfully we do have the municipal workers who comes and clean the beach daily, but of course when you have high tide at night, and then a storm, there will be some washed up rubbish in the morning before the workers come and clears it. As for the boat tour, as I have explained, it is a 2 hours tour, but if guest chooses to skip some of the places that is on the list for personal reasons, then of course that is by choice and the tour will be shorter. A few previous guests and myself have taken the tour and they have enjoyed it. I would not have recommend it otherwise. Of course with what has happened with your trip, the tour operators and I are making enhancements to make sure if such thing happens again we would have a contingency plan, i.e. divert to other place to visit and to ensure that the boat captains are more aware of guests' requests. In any case, than you again for the feedback and we will be working on making the tour, and the house better in the future.

A travel addict. A student of life. An ocean lover. An educator, turn host for foreign visitors to Langkawi. Why the sudden change? I simply think it's time to slow down and smell the ocean, literally! What better way to do it than to abandon the executive shirts, heels, and h…
