We checkin the semi-D at about 4pm. I contacted Ann before we reach. Her daughter came before we reach. Decoration is very cosy, house is very clean. We can feel that the floor was mop before we came in. All the rooms were well decorated and very spacious. We got everything we need in the house. There are some balloons to make the children happy too. There were enough beds for 13 of us (7 adult 6 children). We like the place very much. We had spent 2 nights over there. There is a famous satay celop shop just 3 mins away. we've tried, really taste very good.
Ann came to do checkout with us. she is very friendly too. We Will come to stay here again if we come malacca.
Good simple place for big grp. An easy drive to tourist spots. Dvd kept us entertained. Thks for having us!

Booked a night's stay at Lin's Cottage and overall find the place clean, cozy and comfortable save for a few small issues that could be (website hidden) signal was really bad, could not receive more than 2 TV channels and the quality was so bad we did not switch on the TV set at all for the rest of our stay. Living room downstairs was not air conditioned so it can get really hot and stuffy. Water pressure for the heaters was a little low and the door to the master bedroom needs some fixing, does not shut properly unless you close it really hard.
Other than the issues mentioned above, we are overall happy with the stay. The water filter in the kitchen was really useful and we like that the location was in a quiet and safe neighborhood. Parking wise the porch can fit 2 saloon cars with a little careful maneuvering.
The house looks exactly like what the photo shows. Condition is old, we had a hard time locking the doors and gate. Interior is well decorated and beds are comfortable. Located near Jonker and we appreciated the water filter. Love the card games included. Love the wifi provided as well.
Here's what we think could be improved on..
1. Invest in some mosqitoe repellent or coil. The house was infested with mosqitoes on a hot day/night.
2. Consider including some toiletries. (i.e. handwash, shower foam)
(website hidden) is really small. Would appreciate if the size was much bigger.
4. The big nono to me was the bathroom. Water pressure at level one was low and frustrating when bathing
Adeline was really prompt in replying to my queries but would appreciate more proactive steps in finding out my arrival time and needs.
For the price paid, this was good value but I would not recommend this beyond a one night stay for a big group.
The location of the house is quiet and convenient. Within the walking distance of a few local eateries. Shops are located nearby as well. Walking distance to Jonker street is about 20mins.
House is in clean and matched the pictures advertised. Air con is sufficient to cold the upstair rooms at night, but on a hot afternoon it's just mildly cool. Downstair the living hall isn't air conditioned, but is pretty cool compared to the upstair rooms on a hot sunny afternoon. There is a water filter for potable water in the kitchen. Wifi is available but the speed is at 0.2 mbps upload.
Car park is sufficient to put in 2 cars in with tight maneuvering, a couple more can park directly outside the house.
My Name is Adeline from melaka. originated from Terengganu. i love to travel and that is why it gave me an idea of setting up a place like this for travelers and people whom are visiting.
I am currently in Singapore for work and Lin's Cottage is currently under the care of a friend of mine (Anna), Hope we are able to accommodate all of you well.
Please feel free to drop me a line too!
