Nice and comfortable as exactly as the listing. The location is not so convenient as no mini mart or 7-11 store around.

The place was good and clean. Host was unreachable over calls. Phone was switched off. Location is okay. If you want to explore then it's not good, if you need to relax then it's a pretty good place away from city and noise. Host mentioned that Kitchen can be accessed with consultation but there wasn't any. It was a straightaway no with remarks like this is my kitchen and it cannot be used. Host should remove the mention of access to kitchen in the Description. It is deceiving. We were not even allowed to make tea. To add to that , there was no food delivery either so it really made our stay worse. All in all, okay place.

Graeme and Helen were totally awesome. Really wonderful couple that greeted me and my family. Friendly and welcoming, including their pet (Coco). Nice and cosy home. The pictures closely resembles the rooms. Comfortable beds and environment. The location of the place is also very strategic. In short, very good neighbourhood. My family and I had a very pleasant stay. Love to go back again.

Graeme and Helen were extremely hospitable and friendly! They were very warm upon our arrival and made sure we had everything we needed, even gave us tips on what was going on at the time of our stay (eg. Georgetown Festival). Their house is definitely the icing on top of their great service. Beautifully designed, super comfortable and cozy, and in my opinion, a lot better than hotel rooms. Location of the house is strategic as well as it's really close to Gurney Drive and about 15 minutes to Batu Feringghi beach. The breakfast that Graeme and Helen prepared were also sumptuous and filling. (Love their homemade marmalade sauce!) And their dog, Coco, is really adorable! Overall, my family and I had a great stay and I would most definitely recommend this place should anyone want to visit Penang Island. Would definitely come again too should I visit Penang again in the future.

The best place we stayed so far in Penang! Graeme & Helen is really a nice hosts. Graeme let us to checked in at 6am as we arrived early in Penang. The house located between Gurney & Feringghi. Both room are connected by the balcony door. The house has a great beautiful interior. The room is really clean. Overall, we really enjoyed staying at Graeme and Helen place. Its so comfortable. Not to forget their adorable & friendly poodle, Coco!

This was our 4th stay during the CNY with Graeme and Helen at their house. It was wonderful to see them again and as always, our stay was very comfortable and it was great catching up. We look forward to our many future stays with them.

Graeme and Helen are very welcoming, friendly and informative! They, and Coco make you feel at home. We are a family of 4 and rented 2 rooms for 2 nights and had a great time. Conversation and breakfast are great! Location is outside the city centre, but this is very well linked by bus (no. 101 and 102) that brings you right to the centre of town. Thanks for your hospitality!
