Couldn't have hoped for anything more from house or host. This is a great spot to base yourself for exploring the island. Mary goes above and beyond in making sure you get the most from your time. From airport pick-up AND drop-off, helpful local insight and securing car hire. If you're heading to Langkawi, you'd do well to improve upon this place.
Mary is unique and the stay at her home was great!
We had lots of fun! ;-)
The location is also good: quite and relaxing place but also not too far from beach, restaurants and pubs!
Mary is an excellent host. She picked us from the airport and had informed us in advance she would need time to clean and prepare the house for us (as the previous occupants would check out later that day). The house is as listed on the website. It has a rustic charm. The beach is close by and there are a lot of restaurants near by too. Weather in Langkawi was very hot and humid and as it is a house built in Malay style, the aircon in bedroom is not most effective. Also, if you need wireless connectivity at all times - please make arrangements. Mary was very kind to loan her broadband dongle - but one does not want to impose on her generosity.
The bikes are useful and over all a good stay. If you are looking for quiet, rustic break - this is your place!!!
Mary is very friendly. She picked us up from the airport and showed us around. The house is perfectly located. The cenang center(places to rent motorbikes and cars), beach and restaurants can be reached easily by bike. The house is spacious and comfortable. All in all it was a very pleasant stay.
It was horrible to stay at Mary's: I am still longing back every day!
Beautiful house, very tasteful decorated - she missed a profession as interior decorator. Everything you'll need is available - and more. Bikes are great.
And then there is Mary, lovely crazy Mary. She took me into her car to her friends, her pubs, her life. I enjoyed every little bit.
Don't go here: it might leave me some open dates to come back...
About the Host, Mary
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!
