The apartment was great and exactly as described. It was clean and comfortable and the building has a nice pool, shop and a cafe which serves great food. Liza responded promptly to my messages and was freely available during our stay.
Liza responded promptly to our emails. Good location, clean, nice view. Beds uncomfortable, no flat screen, noisy at night. Not recommended. Only person at a time can go online.
Jerry was there when we arrived, and he us gave us a run-down of the Batu Ferringhi neighbourhood. How to access the Beach, where to find shops and food, taxis and buses. Also he shared his experiences of being the permanent expat.
The Apartment was nicely situated high above the main road, with magnificent sea and jungle views.
We only used the kitchen for instant noodles, boiled water, and the fridge. Eating out is just as cheap and delicious.
Nice pool area with monkeys as an audience.
Love the place especially the decor and theme. The only issue I had was the mattress which I've shared with Liza. Also the wifi is very slow, but enough for getaway from busy emails..
The direction to the apartment was clearly given and the host was responsive to all questions asked.
The apartment was clean generally. Location is near to the night markets and has a nice beach view.
On the downside:
- apartment wasn't as well maintained as mentioned by owned. My sister in-law has complains of itch all over her body after sleeping on the 2nd bedroom. The master bedroom's bed was of so low quality, the spring was horrible and made noisy sound at every small movement
- shower water pressure was very low
-The price shown at the reception was half the price I paid. With the low quality furnitures and badly maintained apartment - I am not very happy paying premium
It was an overall great experience, great view, clean and nicely decorated apartment, great location on Batu Ferringhi
Clean apartment with excellent views from hall and rooms, host kindly came to unlock door when we accidentally left the access card in its holder
and when we accidentally broke the card in the process of retrieving it from card holder host waived the replacement cost. Would have been a perfect stay had the beds been firmer and not soft but overall good place to stay for holiday.
