Our stay at Meg's apartment was absolutely wonderful. Meg is a top-class host. She greeted us at the apartment and provided us with water, a selection of fresh fruits, and toys (and snacks) for my 15 month old. Since we arrived pretty late, she then took us to the local hawker market and purchased a lovely selection of local foods for us to take back to the apartment to eat (since we had to put my son to bed). A lovely lady :)
The apartment itself was perfect. It looks as it does in the photos and the location is great! While we did not end up using the pool or facilities, they looked wonderful and we wished we had had more time to take advantage of them!
Check-in was a breeze and corresponding with Meg is very easy as she responds very quickly!
I would not hesitate to stay at Megs apartment if we found ourselves back in Penang - it was ideal.
My friends and I had an amazing time in Penang. Meg is a wonderful host and because of all her help we had an unforgettable time. She went out of her way to help us in any way possible. The day we arrived she organized a tour of the island and it was a great way to get to know Georgetown and the surrounding areas.
Meg suggested a lot of places to eat at and visit in Bato Ferringhi and it made such a difference. I've never experienced such amazing service from a host.
The apartment is great too. It's clean and it looks exactly like the pictures. Great view of the ocean and not too far from the beach.
I highly recommend this apartment.
The owner of the apartment Meg met us at the apartment to provide keys etc. As it was Chinese New Year we were presented with delicious snacks! Meg went out of her way to show us the many delights of Penang food..
The apartment itself was comfortable with a fully functioning kitchen which was very useful as we had a baby in our party. The swimming pool was fantastic.. There is also a gym which we did not use..
Meg could not have been more helpful. We had a great stay.
We were a family of 7 - including 5 children ages 4 to 14 - who had the pleasure of staying at Meg's Penang apartment for 3 nights. Meg was a wonderful host, plainly adept at accurately anticipating the needs of her guests. The apartment was clean, functional and comfortable, and ideally located - with great views. The kids loved the pool (especially the slide). Batu Ferringhi is at your doorstep and frequent buses (101) to Georgetown stop nearby, making it too readily accessible. Our only regret is not booking a longer stay! We look forward to returning, and highly recommend both Meg and her apartment.
Meg is a very kind and hospitable host who showed us around some great local food with her lovely family. Stayed at the apartment for a week and it is very close to the beach (good for water sports) and night markets along the street. Overall lovely apartment and highly recommend! Thanks Meg!
The apartment is clean and tidy. My children love the pool. Meg and her husband are friendly, helpful and considerate. They are prompt to help us when we are in need. We had a wonderful experience in Penang, tasty food, lots of places to visit and definately excellent host Meg and her husband, and loveable children We enjoyed their accompany. Highly recommended apartment to anyone who wish to visit Penang. .
Meg Tan is a fantastic host. She takes care of yr needs moment the booking is confirmed until the day you leave.
The apt has all the basic amenities for a good holiday. The big WOW factor is this 45 INCh led/plasma TV in the lounge.
A place to return to ...........
Meg is an excellent host. She pays great attention to details in order to let us feel comfortable and at home. She goes the extra mile to ensure that our stay in Penang was as pleasant and safe as possible. We will not hesitate to recommend her apartment to anyone who intends to stay in Penang for a vacation. The apartment was clean and organized. Meg looks into the little things which matter, such as providing refreshments for our stay, battery chargers, cable tv, and, even, table tennis equipments.
Meg hosted us to a lovely 4 day stay in her apartment. On the day of our check-in, we discovered that the lights in one of the common bedrooms and in the common toilet were not working. Meg went out of her way to resolve the issue, making numerous trips to get new lights and also buying a new toaster to replace the old one which was spoilt.
I had briefly mentioned to Meg in passing that I was looking to buy some eggs and butter, and the next thing I knew, Meg appeared magically on our doorstep with the said items.
The apartment itself is in a fantastic location. Close enough to the main action along Batu Ferringhi, and yet quiet enough to catch a good sleep. The apartment is exactly as you see in the photos. The apartment is only a 5 minute walk downhill to the main road of Batu Ferringhi, and an easy 10 minute stroll uphill back to the apartment.
We rode the Rapid Bus (Penang's public bus system) from Batu Ferringhi into Georgetown and also to Gurney Drive. The bus stop is just along the main road, down from the apartment, outside the Holiday Inn. The Rapid Bus is really well connected, and a bit of time spent on traveling and researching the bus routes saved us tons on taxi fares, which means more money for everything else! We spent our days eating great food, getting relaxing massages, and having after dinner drinks at Bora Bora, along the Batu Ferringhi beach.
We rarely got back to the apartment till past midnight, and before we started our uphill stroll back, a mandatory stop at a roadside food place at the bottom of the "apartment hill", for cheap and good Tom Yum soup, become a thing for us. Imagine our surprise at discovering that this nondescript eating place served pretty good food and at only a few Ringgits. Perfect for the late night munchies.
I am looking forward to visiting Penang Island again. It is a place of a neverending buffet of street food, friendly people, and I would definitely stay in Meg's apartment again.
Excellent 2 nights stay in Meg's apartment. Clean apartment and good location. Security is good. Very friendly and helpful Meg, had some water and food prepared when we arrived and even nice local hot breakfast when we check out the apartment. Can't ask for more!
Highly recommended and will definitely stay again when we are back in Penang!
