Location was great, close to what we wanted to do in Gerogetown. Place itself was very charming, and was very quiet. (On a previous trip to Penang my sleep was consistently interrupted by motorcycles driving past in the middle of the night. This was NOT an issue this time around, very happy to report.) Check-in and check-out was a breeze, and Sek Thim was very flexible in accommodating our late check-out request as we had an evening flight out of Penang.

A really well done restoration, the whole house roomy, light, airy and very clean, situated in a very lovely block of terraces, with a small garden too. Everything comfortable and well maintained, we enjoyed our stay at Sek Thim's place. Very easy to get around, walking, or with Grab, in the Heritage area, and close to most of Georgetown's attractions.

The house was a perfect launching pad for activities in the city. It was great to have the small kitchen to use and space to spread out and unwind. Everything was great!

Sek was the absolute BEST host ever! He waited up to check us in at 10 PM, came over at 9 pm one night to try to help us get the internet working again, let us stay a little later on our checkout day as we had a late flight on top of providing an awesome space. The house itself is awesome, great internet, awesome kitchen, SUPER comfortable beds and cleaning every three days. We could not have asked for a better stay!

We had a great time staying at Sek Thim's house. It was very spacious and came equipped with everything you'd need. Sek Thim and his friend were extremely responsive and communicative during check in and check out. The house is within walking distance of the main sights in Georgetown, including some great food! Would recommend.

I work in the theatre as a director. Good meals with friends, gardening and listening to stories are things I enjoy. We are a friendly bunch here at Sinkeh, my team and I. We try to maintain a space that's peaceful and calm; one that encourages people to rest, to be at ease and relaxed.
