Bernard was very responsive to my questions and accomodating to my last minute change in schedule. Thank you for the fuss free stay :)
The house is as described and pictures are accurate. Location is good since we drove, near enough to the old town area but far enough from the noise and bustle. There are also food places and cafes nearby. Overall a good place to stay in Malacca!
屋子十分大，所有要用的用品都應有盡有。而且居住地方距離雞場街及其他景點不遠,徒步可到達! 而屋子也附有單車,我們也有1天踩著單車到處走呢! 這裏不論居住環境還是地理位置也十分好。
另外，屋主的媽媽十分熱情好客，免費載我們從MELAKA SENTRAL 到達屋子，也在我們離開馬六甲的日子載我們出去乘車。在其他旅行日子中,她也載我們到處走，吃地道的食物，熱心的介紹景點，活像一個專業的導遊。能遇著這麼熱情、好客及善良的女士，真為我們的旅程增添不少色彩。
It was a fantastic first experience with Airbnb. Susan (Bernard's mum) was very helpful. She even volunteered to pick us up from Melaka Sentral and showed us the place in her car. Place was really nice - 2 AC bedrooms, living room with TV & DVD player and kitchen area with fridge and microwave. A km from Jonker Street and half km from nearest 7-Eleven. Much recommended!!
Very nice place. Clean and neat house. Good location. Well suited for family travelers. A couple of cooking vessels more will make the kitchen even better for folks line me who want cook. Something to consider.
House is clean and well-lit, with basic amenities provided. Thanks to Auntie Susan for her hospitality.
It is stated that a washer and a dryer will be provided, but we cannot find it.
As the house is right beside a main road, it can be rather noisy especially at night.
The house is located in quite a convenient place whereby you can always sneak out to have foods. I'd like to recommend a bakery shop which is located next to Casa De Café. Overall, Thumbs up!!
Highly recommended place for stay in Melaka, especially for family. The house is well equipped and the owner is very fast in responding to our query, even help us to solve the Astro problem. Love the simple yet adequate furniture & deco, and the house is very clean. There is some distance from the house to Jonker Street but it is not a problem for us as we are driving. Will definitely come back for our next visit :)
