Wonderful Experience~especially for the warm-hearted host Bernard and Auntie Susan.Feel like being treated by a close friend.The location is close the Jonker street and the main spots.Highly Recommended.
At Bernard's place, you will experienced a nice and clean appt close to all hot spots in melaka : restaurants, old town, EU/ chinese neighborhoods. They have even bikes for chilling in the city. We have met Susan, his lovely mother who has pick us up and introduced us to the most authentic restaurants. For people who are looking for a real experience with friendly people, i strongly recommend it !!
Melaka was great! Mdm Susan was very good to us. Offered to take us from Melaka Sentral to the house and also kindly offered to take us back to Melaka Sentral when we were leaving Melaka. The house was clean and tidy! All in all an amazing experience!
Easy to locate w gps. Simple n basic Hse for a nite but the floor is very clean. Air con n beds are good. Big kitchen to sit n eat n talk with frens. Aunty susan is very hospitable n guided us to some places. She even bought some herbs for us. This so much!
It was a breeze having Tan and her sisters in the house. My mum likes their company and find them easygoing and friendly to host.
They drove from Singapore and arrived safely independently.
Everything went smooth and it was a pleasure to host them.
Would recommend Tan to other airbnb hosts here.
Bernard's mum was very welcoming and friendly. Overall had a good stay and location was very convenient as well since it is very near jonker street. Despite the mosquito nettings in the bedrooms, I still got stung so do consider bringing mosquito repellent :)
Thank you Bernard!
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!
