Bed & Breakfast at TOP location in Penang! This very spacious room comes with a queensize bed, private bathroom, aircon, fan, coffee & tea making facilities. Our HUGE pool is open 24 hrs a day!
Anybody staying with us we will gladly pick-up from the airport 20 RM each way (pure petrol expense). A taxi will cost you about 45 RM.
Of course there is also bus 102 which will take you right to the back of our apartment.
We can provide breakfast at a small extra fee. Continental for 10 RM pp and a fully cooked English breakfast for a mere 20 RM pp. We do not provide breakfast before 9 am, but you are welcome to bring and prepare your own should you wish it earlier.
Washing machine can be used for free once every 4 days you stay with us. Otherwise we charge 10RM.
Other parts of the island are within easy reach. Buses both to town or to Batu Ferringhi within a few hundred meters!
When you mention to anybody in Penang that you live on Gurney Drive, the reaction is always: WOW, SOOOO NICE!!!
Gurney is at the moment THE place to be in Penang.
This gorgious apartment is on a very high floor facing both the sea and the hills of Penang, at the same time causing the street noise being minimised.
On the premises are a nice large pool and children's pool + a gym. Should you have a car, we have an indoor parking place for you!
It is right on the boulevard and is surrounded by 2 very popular shopping centres.
Within 5 minutes walking distance there is a choice of at least 50 restaurants, local, thai, korean, western, fastfood, pizza's etc. etc. A couple of hawker centres (food courts) are also within walking distance.
Plenty of bars to choose from within the same 5 min walk.
You have access to the kitchen, the living room and any of the 3 balconies :)
Of course linnen and towels are supplied!
Should I mention the gym and the HUGE pool?
I had a great an lovely stay at CC Gurney. Caroline & Cees do everything to make their guests having a great time in Penang. They are a openminded, warm and hospitable couple. Their amazing apartment is located in the heart of 'foodloving' Penang. Easy to walk to the hawker market, lots of restaurants and the local (fresh) (website hidden) know the best (hidden) places so you have to ask them for the best spots (you would never find your own). The room is clean and spacious, nice bed an great balcony. A must stay when you visit (website hidden) thanks for the great time, hopefully see you again!
This was my first AirBnB experience. As a very busy executive on the road, I normally stay at impersonal hotels. It was nice to be able to exchange interesting conversation. I really appreciated getting to know Caroline and Cees. I was stunned that they not only picked me up at the airport, but also invited me to join them for lunch and dinner. Great place and beyond my expectations!
Cees and Cary are by far the best hosts we have experienced using airbnb thus far. Staying with them felt more like home than renting a room. The room is spacious and the view from their apartment is breathtaking. They both know so much about Penang and we're always available to answer any questions. Provided us with local maps and guided us in every way possible. We will be coming back to Penang and now staying elsewhere isn't even an option.
The room and the view from the balcony are great. Caroline's cats are soooo cute. Miss the days in Penang!
37 th floor with a wonderful view over the sea. Situated in a very nice area iof Georgetown - good starting point for Batu ferringhi and national park. surrounded by shopping malls and food stalls. nice swimming pool and very safe.
when Going to the airport it's advisable to take a taxi.
hosts very friendly.
Caroline and Case were wonderful. From picking up me and my mother at the airport to inviting us to luncheon with them to making sure every aspect of our stay was comfortable, they went above and beyond their responsibilities as hosts to help us have a great time in Penang. And it goes without mention that they have the most amazing apartment with a view as fantastic as what you see in the pictures. I had many a good moment with them on their unparalleled balcony as well as in the pool, which had so few users that it made us feel like we had our own private pool for the whole stay. Although we went on to check in at a boutique hotel in Georgetown afterwards, we thought very fondly of the apartment on Gurney Drive and could easily have stayed there longer than the three nights that we initially booked. I definitely recommend everyone to give Caroline and Case's apartment a try if you ever visit Penang! I look forward to going back if I were to have another opportunity to visit the island in the future. Thank you again for a great stay.
Carrie was very welcoming, picking us up from the airport and taking us for lunch as her favourite 'coffee-house', a great introduction to all the delicious food in Georgetown.
The apartment is huge and spacious allowing for privacy and space to catch up. Being able to use the kitchen and fridge helped when you didn't want to go out for breakfast. Being able to get advice on anything...transport, places to see, must visit locations, shops etc.. was brilliant. Even a hairdresser recommendation was fantastic.
Although Carrie and Case, at the moment are smokers, Carrie was very considerate and only smoked on the massive balcony, and was very sensitive to our needs. As staunch anti smokers neither of us found the house smelt of cigarette smoke and really appreciated the effort CC went to. Previous guests who commented negatively on this obviously did not discuss the matter.
Loved the feeling of home with the two affectionate, quiet and gentle cats. Would highly recommend this airbnb. Perfect location, great hosts, clean, spacious, comfortable and fantastic views. It's not a 5 star hotel and we didn't expect that as we wanted to relax and not have to worry about our attire and having to get out of your pjs for breakfast. Pool is fantastic!! So close and accessible to so much... transport, shops, temples and hawker markets etc

We, CC, are Cees & Carry (pronounce: Case!)
We are from Holland and have been coming to Penang for more than 25 years now. We know Penang as the best. We love trying new restaurants and getting a larger choice of where to eat what.
Cees has been in the hospitality business for 40 years in Holland and would now like to continue meeting new people from all over the world in Penang and show what makes Penang so special.
Carry loves to cook and if you have special requests, just ask and see what she can do for you.....
