Our stay at Sammy's place was fantastic! Very good communication upfront, pickup at the ferry, very friendly welcome and a nice room. We really enjoyed the open outdoor kitchen. Renting a motorbike or car is absolutely neccesary to get somewhere but Sammy will arrange that for you if younask him. All in all we enjoyed Langkawi more because of our stay there. Because it is different than hotels, you should reslly expect to stay at someone's house. For us it felt like we stayed for 5 nights at our uncle snd aunt in Langkawi.
Sammy is such a welcoming and helpful host, and we really enjoyed our time in his house.
His wife Liza, daughter Tasha also helped us out when we encountered problems. Such a sweet family!
Next time If I come to Langkawi, Sammy's house would still be mine first choice!
Мы с Сэмми провели отпуск отлично! Очень гостеприимная семья. Хозева всегда готовы помочь. В доме несколько комнат с отдельным входом. Есть все необходимое -телевизор, кондиционер, горячая вода, полотенца, постельное белье, полностью оборудованная летняя кухня. Есть возможность готовить еду самостоятельно. Для передвижения по острову необходимо арендовать машину или мотобайк. У нас отстались только хорошие впечатления!
Sammy's datter hentede os i lufthavnen og vi kørte hjem til vores lejlighed. Køleskabet var fyldt op med sodavand og vand. Der var desuden mælk og cocopops til børnene.
Sammy's kone vaskede vores tøj den første dag. Lejligheden er en del af sammy's hus. huset ligger isoleret fra de øvrige overnatningsmuligheder. Hvis du skal bo her, så har du brug for en bil.
Sammy was a great host, and made our stay on Langkawi a lot easier. We were met at the Langkawi boat dock by Natasha, who works for Sammy. She picked us up and drove us to his house. The house is in a small village approximately 30 mins from the boat dock, but Sammy arranged a rental car for us at a very reasonable rate. There are no buses on Langkawi and taxis are expensive, so hiring a car is essential. Sammy is very friendly, and provided us with maps and refreshments etc. The room is generally clean, well air-conditioned and equipped with cable tv. As the house is in a rural village, there are a few insects around, but this is to be expected in this locality. Sammy is a travel agent, so was able to organise excursions and tours on the island from the house. He is also a very engaging and interesting character, and took the time to talk to us in the evenings about Malaysia's history, politics and culture. There are very few options when it comes to staying on Langkawi without resorting to an expensive hotel, and as such Sammy is well recommended. Further, he arranged for an early morning transit to the airport at no extra charge.
Thanks for having us Sammy!
Sammy and his wife are very nice and helpful people so we would definitely recommend to stay with them. We especially liked that the place was a safe and relaxing place to stay in for our 1 and 3 year old children. They could play in the pool while we were having a drink in the outdoor kitchen watching them. We also got helpful tips and advice about things to do, and Sammys wife arranged a daytrip on a boat for us.
We had a wonderful week at Sleepy Hollow Villa. We (my husband and I and our 2 kids 9 and 13 years old) stayed in the spacious family room.
Why will highly recommend this place:
It's in a Malay village, in the country side, but still private with all due respect for everyone. It's quiet and peaceful. You can swim in the private pool. Nature and fishing. You can sit and listen to the birds and animals in the trees around you.
You need a car.
We stayed during Christmas 2013 and one of the nights Sammy and his very nice wife organized a barbecue night for all of us. In total 3 families (total number of rooms you can let) and what a splendid night with lots of local food, wine, singing in multiple languages and great laughter.
Anyone fill free to contact me if you need more detail informations.
Many kisses from Mathias, Kristine, Lars and Bettina
Staying at Sammy's was great! It was out first time in Langkawi ( and the beginning of a much longer journey ) and Sammy set the bar high for other hosts. He made us feel like family, provided us with everything we needed, always indulged in good conversation and occasionally entertained his guests with singing ( he used to have a band ) and fun drunk games. His place is a little bit outside of the typical touristy areas, so much so that people will smile and greet you when walking past them. Getting around is not a problem though, because Sammy also has a car rental. When we are back in Langkawi we will definitely be staying with Sammy again!
Nice getaway in Langkawi. Large room in quiet area.
Pro: big room, living room, quiet, met us at airport, good price on scooter and car rental, outdoor kitchen with free "cook your own" eggs and toast for breakfast.
Con: far from stores and restaurants but the low cost rental car and scooter nullifies this.
Recommend for budget holiday.
Sammy and his wife are very friendly and easy-going. They came one day earlier than the booking date. It is such a wise decision that we spent a very great afternoon in Huishan Ancient Town and Nanchan Temple. They have very good life habit, clean and tidy and could manage themselves well, always says yes when I ask if everything goes on well. Since they are really experienced host in airbnb. They also provide valuable suggestion for my host service. They are very happy to share the picture of their own house. I wish I could go with my family to Malaysia and live in Sammy's house one day. Of course, I really wish to host them again in the future.
Sammy and Liza are both very nice, i enjoyed their stay at my apartment. hope they will choose my place to stay next time they come to hangzhou.
Sammy and Liza are both very nice and interesting. It is very inspiring to see them enjoying travelling at this age. We are looking forward to be your guests some day in the future on the island. Hope you guys have a good time traveling through China!
I didn`t meet Sammy but our housemate said he is very nice guest. He also left my place clean ,quiet, and respected my space. I would host them again any time. I hope to see them all again someday in the future.
We enjoyed Sammy and his wife' stay so much and this time their children visited. They were a bit sick in harsh Korea winter but we still enjoyed together cooking and eating out to good restaurants.
My pleasure to have you at my place.
His wife and he are very friendly and gentle. Loved to have them at my place !
Sammy and his son came here, they both are friendly and easy to chat :) Welcome back in anytime or we can go to Malaysia to visit haha!
Sammy and his son were great guests, friendly and we were very happy to have them to stay. They took care of the place and gave me advice. We would recommend them as a guest and welcome them back anytime : )
It was a pleasure to host Sammy and his son for almost a week in Taichung. Sammy is really well travelled and adventurous and I enjoyed hearing about his travel experiences. No wrong words to say here. A great guest to have and stay for any length of time.
