The neighborhood is located in the quieter part of Johor Bahru (JB) and the development overlooks the Tebrau River. It is considered a gated community and frequent patrols are conducted to ensure the safety of its occupants.
The apartment is just a stone's throw away to the customs, which is perfect for travelers that do not want to fork out extra cash to spend the night in Singapore. It is possible to go for a day trip in Singapore and then be back in time for dinner in JB.
JB is a city known for its culinary delights that will pleasantly surprise travellers that have the patience and will to embark on a gastronomic journey to hunt for these established institutions that harbor mouth-watering cuisines that are well known amongst the locals. Aside from food, JB is also a city known for shopping where most things can be had for a bargain. Shopping centres, flea markets as well as night markets are located around the city that can seek to satisfy even the most demanding of shoppers.
When the sun sets, the night owls can rejoice. For those that love a good night out in clubs, pubs or bars, be prepared to drink to your fill for cheap liquor is the order of the day in JB. And fret not, for most of these places stay open until the wee hours in the morning.
After a night of making merry, it is customary for locals to end off the night with a bout of local street food known as "Lok Lok", which is basically food on skewers that is either deep fried or boiled in soup.
We will be more than glad to offer an itinerary of what to see and do in JB upon request.

Robin is a good host. Provided 6 towels to each of us and explained in detailed the usage of the home appliances. There's even a WIFI for us to use. The house is neat and clean but rather an old apartment with its surrounding that needs some upgrade/improvement.
Overall, we are satisfied with our stay because Robin is able to provide us a cozy house as per pictures advertised. Another plus point, the price is reasonable (website hidden) - Robin. Maybe you should get the management to do some upgrade/improvement on the surrounding. It will then be super perfect.
Awesome Hosts! Friendly people and answered most of our doubts. Although the look of the apartment from outside isnt very good , but once you step into the apartment , it's a total different world! Awesome place to eat nearby and furthermore the apartment is near to the clubs area. Apartment was awesome and it's clean!
Felicia and Robin took care of us and were professional hosts in keeping contact before and close to the time of our stay. Very friendly, lovely people! We were met close to the property so that we could find it easily, and Robin showed us around and answered all our questions about where to go in the area. We loved the apartment - really clean and very comfortable for us as a family. Even better than it looks in the photos!! It took us about 25 mins to drive to Legoland, which was perfect and our main reason for going to Johor Bharu. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your wonderful property. If we come back to Johor Bharu we'll be in touch again.
It was good, as the place was well kept and clean during our stay. The host was helpful
The place is clean and spacious! Host also being very helpful and friendly getting us the info around JB. Definitely a pleasant stay. Thanks Felicia & Robin.
My friends and i had a pleasant stay in this unit. No worries about securities as guards and doing their rounds quite often. Room was very very spacious. Host was very friendly and understanding (as we were abit late due to customs jam) . Nearby there is a also conveniant shop and eateries. Overall it was a pleasant experience. Thank you host for the good hospitality.
About the Host, Felicia
Hi, my name is Felicia! This apartment is currently managed by my boyfriend (Robin) & I. We thought it was such a pity to let this awesome apartment go to waste since it is currently unoccupied. We were both born and raised in the city of Johor Bahru, and educated in Singapore. He is still studying and I am currently working (both in Singapore) before pursuing a degree in the near future.
We are currently in our twenties and our mission is to provide clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation for weary travelers as we have experienced first-hand how important it is when we were traveling. We also love meeting new people and hopefully we can meet friends that could potentially be our host when it is our turn to travel in the future. We also like to keep our living areas spick-and-span so fellow travelers, this we hope shall allay your fears about any filthy spaces.
We are rather familiar with both Johor Bahru as well as Singapore so we are definitely able give suggestions in terms of itinerary and sharing hidden gems that are usually hard to find for non-locals.
We are both competent in English, Malay, and Chinese, so feel free to talk to us in however way you are most comfortable with. We want to make sure our guests are happy and that their stay is 100% value for money. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries!
