Are you looking for a quiet place which is safe and your privacy respected?
Do you want a place where you can stay comfortably during the severe winter in your home-country?
Or do you want to experience living like a local, with a local? If you answer "YES" to any of these questions, look no more! My place is your place.
My apartment is located in a small town about 7 km from George Town. It is a big apartment by Penang standard, with an area of 1800 sq. ft.
There are 2 guest rooms to be rented out. One is about 150 sq. ft., can accommodate 2 adults, is equipped with a queen-sized bed, a writing table, a wardrobe, an air-conditioner, a radio and an attached bathroom, with hot water. This room is priced at USD 25 per room per night (single or double).
The other is about 200 sq. ft., equipped with 2 single beds, and a sofa bed too. There is a home theater set in this room. It is air-conditioned and very well-ventilated with a nice view. This room can easily accommodate 3 or 4 persons. This room is priced at USD 30 per night for 2 persons.
This area is served by public buses, Rapid Penang and the bus stop is just two minutes away from the bloc.
If you love cycling, you can rent my bicycle to cycle around. I can show you around too, for a nominal sum.
Immersion is a way to get to know local way of life and local culture.
If you are interested in cooking, I can teach you how to cook some local dishes (free-of-charge) but you have to fork out the expenses for the ingredients, which can be bought at the wet markets within walking distance.
There is a public park nearby where you can do tai-chi every morning.
The stay comes with a simple, complimentary breakfast of home-made bread with home-made pineapple jam or butter plus coffee/tea. Alternatively, you can opt for the delicious Penang food which is available at a number of food outlets near the apartment or at the wet market nearby.
A nominal sum will be charged for the use of the washing machine and/or cooking facilities.
Should you need transport to/from airport/bus station/ferry terminal, I can provide that in a win-win situation, that is, pay for it at the rate cheaper than a taxi/cab.

Shirley was a fantastic host, so friendly and accommodating. She went out of her way to pick me up, help me with transport and provide information about the area. Her breakfasts were very tasty, with homemade bread and jam and high quality Chinese tea. The room was exactly as described with a fantastic view. There were lots of delicious hawker centers close to the apartment, and buses to the city center stopping close by. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
Shirley's place was perfect for us. We enjoyed every day her homebacked bread and her inspired advice how to discover Penang and the local food. It was a great pleasure that she, even on her day off, took us for a great sightseeing trip with her car ! She was a perfect host!
We thank you very much, Shirley.
