Canadian expats living in Macau with our two sons. Love to surf, fish, swim, snorkel, beach, and hike.
Had a great Christmas break in Melanie's lovely, comfortable family home - she even left the Christmas decorations up to make it feel extra homely! The apartment is very spacious, perfect for four adults, set in a beautiful forest/beach area on the very bottom of the second island that makes up Macau - far enough away from the craziness of the casinos for a relaxing break, but within easy striking distance of most of Macau's main attractions.
Highly recommend making use of the many hiking trails that criss cross the hills near the apartment (there is a direct road over to Coloane to visit the AMAZING Lord Stow's Bakery) and spending time down by the BBQ area on the beach. The fabulous Miramar restaurant, serving Portuguese style food, is a short walk along the beach too. I'd love to go back to Macau in the spring and spend more time on the beaches near the apartment .
All in all, a perfect stay and Melanie is a great host - good communication and everything left as she said it would be. She left some useful information, maps and books too - perfect for getting to know the fascinating place that is Macau!
The apartment is clean and cosy. It's big enough for a family and located in a nice and quiet area near the beach. Melanie is a great and very helpful host. I would definitely stay there again.
Spent 4 days at this wonderful place with our 2 years old. The apartment is very nice and comfortable, complete with all amenities and located in a very nice area of Macau.
Thanks meliane for the help and arrangement during our stay. The apartment is clean and large located near the beach. A great getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city life!
I definitely would like to stay there again next time!!
It is a very nice flat,clear,large..nearby the beach,very quiet.easy to go to the city center.thank you Melanie.
Arrived at the apartment. located as said near the beach with a view of the beach. the apartment is beautifully furnished and equipped. me and my partner were extremely happy and relaxed to be able to stay in such a nice apartment.
the owner, Melanie, keeps in constant contact with myself and provided the details to locations in macau to the best of her ability. she is thoughtful and left maps so that i could plan my itinerary and how to get to the various attractions.
i would definitely consider staying there again if i am heading to macau!
thanks once again melanie!
Melanie's apartment is wonderful - spacious and comfy. Quiet neighborhood in the Hac Sa Beach area. Great for anyone looking for a getaway from the hustle and bustle of downtown Macau. She is also a great host, very responsive and helpful.
I am very happy that I have Melanie's family and friends visiting Jialeshuei, wonderful people!
Melanie is a busy mother, but managed to organize a 40th wedding anniversary get way for her parents, Wendy and Ray. She was very conscientious on following up while arranging for her parents, and was a pleasure to communicate with. Wendy and Ray are lovely people. She and her parents are blessed to have each other; I would recommend all of them as guests!
Melanie and her family looked after the place well and were pleasant and nice people.
Though I was abroad when Melanie stayed, she seemed lovely during our emails, and the cleaner said everyone was lovely, leaving my home appreciated. Melanie took some effort to care for my cat as it can be a bit persistent!
I would definitely welcome Mel and her family back to stay.
