The space
Welcome to Balik Pulau BookLodge B&B, a unique stay comprising 3 guestrooms with different literary themes, offering both comfort and a cozy ambience in a countryside home, but best of all, surrounded by lots of books! A chill-out in the tropics, a reading oasis!

You will be staying in our 'deluxe queen', affectionately called PROSE ROOM. It is a room on the first floor, facing the back of the house with a very spectacular mountain view. The room comes with air-conditioning and a retro ceiling fan, and is tastefully furnished with wooden tropical furniture - a rattan queen-sized bed with plush bedding, a rattan writing desk - as well as a wardrobe. The room shares a bathroom with hot shower with our deluxe twin. Each person gets a bath towel and a face towel.

The room shares the first floor with 2 other guestrooms, and a common space, containing a raised wooden tatami platform, perfect for lazing about or reading your book. The tatami also contains a book exchange.

Downstairs, we have a spacious living hall where our large collection of books for sale are placed, as well as a plush sofa and a dining table. The kitchen side has a bar counter with bar stools for lounging. You may make use of the kitchen for light cooking, like instant noodles, etc, and some storage space in our fridge is permitted too, subject to reasonable amounts. There is a common bathroom located at the back.

Use of washing machine is permitted for a small fee.

For 3rd guest, we will provide a single mattress complete with bed sheet, blanket, pillow, and a towel.

Where you’ll be

Balik Pulau, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia

My home is located in a quiet street of terrace houses, surrounded by coconut groves, few minutes from the centre of Balik Pulau town. Balik Pulau is located on the western side of Penang island, and features an idyllic rural atmosphere, with rice paddies, fishing communities, Malay 'kampung' houses, vegetable farms, fruit orchards in the surrounding steep hills. The place is a good mix of old and new, with nice country roads perfect for cycling.

The Pasir Panjang Beach is another place to visit for its clean sandy beach and sunset. For the nature lovers, you can take a boat to Penang Forest Reserve at Teluk Bahang (the jetty is 15 mins drive from our B&B) and hike up to Monkey Beach.

During your stay

I live in the same house (my room is downstairs by the kitchen!), and I will be here to welcome you, assist you with anything you need during your stay, or just for a chat! Depending on my schedules, sometimes we may head out for dinner or outings together e.g. cycling and jogging, but this is all rather spontaneous! Of course, I will also understand if you wish to have a bit more privacy during your stay!By the way, I speak English, Mandarin, Malay and some local dialects such as Hokkien and Cantonese. Maybe you would love to teach me a little bit of your mother tongue if i don't speak your language? :)
