A centrally located apartment offering a very spacious bedroom with a private bathroom with bathtub. You will also have access to most of the apartment, including the living room, dining room, kitchen and large lush balcony, although all these common areas are shared with the host. The apartment is home to 2 lovely and very gentle cats (Bintang and Lucky), therefore you should be aware if you are allergic to cats or perhaps this might be the place to live if you love cats. They are not allowed on any furniture.
The host prefers single females as guests, whilst no other visitors are allowed (unless approved by the host), as it is a private home.
***The listed price of the room of 95 RM per night is for 1 person only. In some cases I will allow a second person, however, this is at an extra charge of 55 RM per night for the 2nd person. Therefore, if 2 people stay it will cost 150 RM per night in total.
*ABOUT THE ROOM/APARTMENT*
The room is large and furnished with a double bed/king sized bed, large wardrobe, a commode with many drawers and it also has a private bathroom with a bathtub. There is an attached balcony that can be used for drying clothes.
- Free breakfast and wi-fi included in the price.
- Guests are welcome to have unlimited use of the A/c for a surcharge Rm15 otherwise please use the a/c for bedtimes only.
- There is a washing machine available and can be used at a cost of 7 RM per load.
- The living room is equipped with a TV, DVD player and has satellite TV channels, all of which are free to use for the guest, if the host is not using them.
- Free parking for 1 car.
*ABOUT THE HOST*
The host is a very international local - born and raised in Penang/Butterworth but has lived in Europe (Denmark, Germany, Italy) for around 10 years. She knows Penang like the back of her hand and can give you plenty of tips of places to see and things to do. If she has time, she might even be able to take you to visit certain places for sightseeing or dining. She speaks English, Malay, Danish and German.
*ABOUT THE LOCATION*
The apartment itself is located centrally in the Georgetown with the closest amenities being a private hospital about 400 meters away and a supermarket 550 metres away. Penang is famous for its restaurants and hawker stalls and you will often never be more than a few hundred meters away from a place to eat.
You will find very cheap busses going in all directions from between 100-500 metres away. Taxi's are plentiful in Penang and I can provide you with the phone numbers of local taxi companies.
The apartment is also about 1.3 to 3km away from the heart of Georgetown, Penang including historic places like Little India, Fort Cornwallis, the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion and Penang's landmark building, KOMTAR.
About 3km to the north-west you will find Gurney Drive and the popular shopping mall, Gurney Plaza, whilst you can find Batu Ferringhi, it's hotels, restaurants, night markets and beaches about 13km from the apartment.

the rooms is exactly like in the pictures... but the soul of this place is Sapur. She is one in a million. I wish I could spend more time with her, she made me feel like I belong to this house. She got some beautiful stories to tell, you will envy her family, great life... dear Sapur...hope to visit you again. The best place to be in Penang.
As female travellers, me and my friend were looking for place that coould give us comfort as well as safe environment. Well in Sapur's place, we're just couldn't ask for more. She is so kind, attentive and caring.. her house is sparkling clean with warm interior desig which will make you feel like home. Thanks so much for everyhing. i will definitely stay at this place again for sure!
The only thing I can say is thank you, Sapur. You are such an intelligent lady and great host that made our trip much more meaningful and wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing you story with us and showing us around the best local spots. I enjoyed every moment that we spent together. It is a pity that we only stayed for 4 days but I will absolutely come back to visit you. Please take good care of yourself and see you very soon. :) lots of love, Loulou and Cathy.
Thank you Sapur,for everything to do!Everything is information display, everything is very good, Sapur is a very good host, I think the next to Penang, will once again choose here!
Staying with Sapur is what, I think, Airbnb is all about. A friendly host in comfortable accommodation happy to share their local knowledge with you. Sapur's apartment is spacious and airy - our room had an ensuite bathroom and we were encouraged to make use of the kitchen as if we at home. In the end, we had breakfast with Sapur who also kindly gave us a lift to the botanical gardens and arranged our ride to the airport by taxi. Location-wise the apartment is a short walk from Macalister street where the bus runs into the centre at regular intervals and we found it ideal. Sapur is the most generous and informative host you could wish for. We can't recommend her place highly enough.
I was very lucky to meet with Ibu Sapur and stay in her house. She has been a great and very helpful host. The first time I came to the apartment she drove me around to get induction of Penang. She gave me information about interesting places to visit and dropped me in that area.
The room and the apartment are exactly like in the picture and they are so homey and it's better than staying in a hotel. It's a nice experience that Ibu let me help her in the kitchen and taught me some of her secret recipes.
The next days were fantastic. As we developed our friendship, we discussed a lot of things and had experience to hang out together or together with her friends and get to know each other.
I can't say more but to tell everyone back in my place that Ibu Sapur has been a wonderful, generous and kind hearted person.
Oh by the way, Ibu means Mom or mam in Malay.
Sapur is a wonderful hostess & made me feel very welcome from the first moment of arrival. The guest room is spacious, comfortable, bright & airy with a good sized ensuite bathroom. The apartment is very nicely furnished & has a balcony with lots of jungle plants making it a delightful place to sit for breakfast. Sapur is very happy to help & advise on where to go & what to see. She knows Penang very well & is able to help with bus route numbers etc. Buses are very close to the apartment & take about 15 mins to city heritage area & 50 mins to Batu Ferenghi. Sapur's hospitality gets 10 out of 10 from me.
Sapur is an incredible host - very tactful, polite and careful. She possesses a fascinating international experience as well as deep knowledge of her own country and its diverse culture. Fluent in several languages, including English and German, Sapur eagerly shares insider tips (from the best city markets and most delicious variety of mangoes to best-view terraces and authentic souvenir shops). The apartment is located in a safe and calm neighbourhood, just 15min walk from the inner city of George Town. It is spacious, tidy and very elegantly decorated. The room is comfortable and bright with its own bathroom and balcony. A perfect experience in a very distinctive city. Thank you, Sapur and hope to see you again!
Sapur is a really great host. She picked me up from the bus stop, made me breakfast and lunch, and even brought me around the city. She made me feel like home and her house is really clean and cozy. She shares interesting stories about her family and herself too. Thank you so much for having me in your house.
