Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We have had the most fabulous holiday at Mary's house which is a 10 minute walk to the beach and the main strip of Petai Cenang you will have local Malaysian's as neighbours rather than tourist hotels it is reasonably lit if going out at night. The beach here is the best on the island with water sports, sun beds and beach restaurant's providing drinks snacks and meals. We spent many happy hours just walking the beach and reading on our sunbeds. Our accommodation was as stunning as the photos. All meals were taken outdoors on the decking, along with drinks in the evening so that we could watch the varied wildlife particularly the 3 monitor lizards that live there.. Mary our host lives in the adjoining house, she was never intrusive, but was always available for advice and information. She invited us out to meet her friends and to show us some of the best restaurants on the island with the added advantage that she drove. We were also invited to one of her famous cheese and wine parties with an interesting array of guests from around the world. When we arrived there was some welcome food in the refrigerator along with a bottle of wine, some beers and a water cooler in the kitchen. We knew then that we had chosen the right place to stay. I would highly recommend Mary's house to anyone who wants an authentic Langkawi experience rather than a generic hotel one.

  • We stayed 6 nights in Mary's house in January. The house is very nice and it's located in the countryside 10 minutes from the main road at Pantai Cenang. This walk is nice, between fields and scattered local houses but it can get very hot during the day, at least in January. We hired a car for 2 days to see Langkawi and it was great to be able to come and go as we wished. The house is beautifully decorated. There is a small kitchen where you can cook some basic things and Mary left us some breakfast provisions. The bed is very comfortable and we liked sitting at the verandah where you can see some monitor lizards sometimes, as there is a stream around the house. The bathroom is a wet room with toilet. The only thing is that there are very low lamps in the house so tall people can bump into some lamps. We bumped many times on the verandah's lamp until the chain became loose, and only one of us is tall! All in all is an enjoyable place and we recommend it, particularly if you are renting a car or if you don't mind to walk a bit. We enjoyed our time there.

  • Mary was already waiting for us at the airport when our plane landed as previously arranged via email. On arrival, we were welcomed by Mary's 2 cats Pink and Floyd and we caught the first glimpses of 2 monitor lizards.
    Mary's place is a quiet oasis a stone throw away from Cenang beach. Very well equipped and the breakfast basket is much appreciated. We really enjoyed sitting out on the verandah.
    In terms of location, Mary showed us a short cut to the beach, it takes approximately 20mins. Hiring a car / scooter is an option but we were ok to walk.
    Mary also recommended us to the best beach bar for the perfect sunset / drinks and dinners.
    My boy, Jamie, is completely taken by Mary and her cats.
    We had a great time staying in Mary's Malay traditional house.
    Thanks for having us Mary!

  • Mary`s house is nice located, so you can walk to the beach and to the shops/restaurants but it is also in a quiet environment. We enjoyed sitting on the teracce and watching the water monitors and birds in the morning! The house is nice and cosy decorated. Drinking water was provided and the refrigerator was filled for good breakfast. Mary picked us up from the airport and she is a great host. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

  • Mary is a wonderfull host. She picked us up at the airport,showed us around a spotted best places to eat. She provided us with nice breakfast for first couple of mornings. Her house is in perfect location,nice walking distance from all restaurants and beach. It is at the end of the road,so its peacefull and quiet. House is well equipped,we found there everything we needed.
    Mary was very helpfull during whole stay,assisted us with renting a car and was always there for us when we needed. We really enjoyed our stay,can definitely recomend to everyone who wants to visit Langkawi.

  • Had an amazing time at Mary's. She was the perfect host. She knew all the best places to go in langkawi. The kampung is in a beautiful, quiet area yet close to all the tourist bits. And one of the best things, we didn't get bitten by Mosquitos at all whilst staying at Mary's! Will definitely be staying again.

  • Its a great place to stay in Langkawi if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of the main street and the adjacent hotels, yet walking distance to the beach. Mary keeps the house impeccable and will be a trove of information if you are on the lookout for the perfect sunset Margarita. No hesitation in recommending it then!

  • This is the place to stay when in Langkawi! We loved Mary's house and she made us feel so welcome.Hiring a car for two days to explore the island made us realise that we had chosen the best place to stay! Thank you Mary, hope we meet again some day Gillian and Derek

  • Incredible hostess, absolutely stunning house with gorgeous natural scenery surrounding it, would definitely recommend! Mary was a fabulous hostess who gave us the perfect balance of privacy and entertainment with her wonderful friends! Not too far from the beach but secluded enough to relax alone if you get a rainy day. Perfect :)!

  • Hostess with the Mostest ! You get the best of both worlds at Mary's… The house is set back from the road a bit which lends to a wonderfully tranquil environment but is only a short walk (or a quicker bike ride) to the beach, restaurants, bars, clubs, etc. Cenang can be as cheap or expensive, as quiet or as rowdy, as you want it to be and Mary will help guide you to exactly what you're looking for. I feel very lucky to have found just the right place for my stay, couldn't have asked for more !

I am originally from England but have lived in many different countries including Australia and the Middle East. Married for too many years and have three grown up children all living in different countries. Now single and enjoying a very different life in Langkawi! My first love is music, live if I can find it! I enjoy bars, restaurants and good company so Langkawi is perfect for me. I have two devine cats, Pink and Floyd! Hosting with Airbandb has been a real success so far and I have been lucky in having some great guests!
