Kelly's place is great for a large family or group of friends to stay while visiting Penang. Penang is a small place so everything is nearby as long as u have a car or transport. House was very comfortable and in a quiet area with a nice park just walking distance away. She was also helpful in communication and getting us checked in. Very responsive to messages.

The house is much bigger than expected, we were pleasantly surprised. Plenty of space for a group of 15; a spacious living room and a rooftop area great for hanging out together. Each bedroom had a bathroom, so we didn't have to fight for them. The location is perfect being only 15 minutes away from Unesco Georgetown and 45 minutes from Batu Ferringhi. Only took 10-20 minutes to get to all the great food spots. The host was very friendly and flexible with time. We travelled from KL and only managed to get to the house late night, she kindly waited for us. On the day we were leaving, she allowed us to check out at anytime for our convenience. Towels aren't provided but we brought our own towels so we were fine. Everything else was well provided.

We decided a last minute short holiday to Penang for a group of 10people. We were happy to find Kelly’s home that suit our accommodation need in terms of rooms and bed arrangement. Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom which enhances our stay convenience. Kelly has been a very welcoming host from beginning and patiently provided all information we need to know about our stay. She has briefed us the amenities of the house, the water heater function and the area. The house was presented exactly as shown in photos and all amenities are described precisely. Being 15 minute drive away from Georgetown, with our own transport, we considered it convenient to travel to downtown. We also liked the parking facilities, as we have 3 cars, the third car could just park along the roadside outside of the house and ample of parking spaces available. This is especially beneficial to those travelling with big vehicles and many cars. We loved the quiet neighborhood which we could have a sound and peaceful rest. We were very happy about the cleanliness of the house even with such a spacious area and built up size.. ;) The kitchen is basic with only one electrical microwave, water filter dispenser and refrigerator. This suggests no heavy cooking inside the house. This did not matter to us. Penang is famous of world class street food, we were here for food hunting, not to do house chore during holiday: P The overall stay experience was very delightful and sure we will be back for our next trip to Penang. Thank you for hosting us !

This house is new. Amenities are basic. Host provided with shampoo, body wash, toilet roll. No towel provided but we are aware of this, so that's fine. The living room sofa is too soft and not comfortable. Once you sit down, you hardly get up. The main issue is the cleanliness. The floor is really dusty, you feel really uncomfortable when you walking around, especially those who need to add on extra mattress on the floor. And the toilet bowl, can find smudge even we first check in. And we notice that in our room, there is a big spider on the spider web behind the toilet door. It cause us really feel uncomfortable, afraid the spider will fall off every time we go to toilet. We found there are a lot of ants on the floor in the room, kitchen, and living room too. Think pest control need to be done. This place is a little bit far from town. But it's in a new and quiet residential area. If you have your own transport, that's fine. There are still many rooms for improvement on the cleanliness. Hope the host will look into this and wish the next guests can have a better and more comfortable stay. Thank you to the host for all the information she provided to us throughout our stay.

Quite a surprise review from Gwen. Our review for this guest was base on our interaction with another person, who was Alicia. As the person who communicate with us from beginning was Alicia. Somehow, the guest Gwen who booked this did not appear to communicate with us from beginning nor being introduced. Even for Alicia, she has used two different Airbnb accounts to communicate their stay arrangement. In summary, we need to deal with three Airbnb accounts for this particular stay. Very funny though as to how this big group of guests coordinated their stay. The guests have left food waste in the kitchen area openly without disposing them in the garbage bin as suggested in the notice. This attracted ants.Bear in mind, next guests enjoyment really depend on your behaviour and ways of taking care of the house. Smudge in the toilet is actually the non-removal stain left from renovation. This was stated in the notice in bathroom. We only impose a humble fees of less than USD10/pax/night. We are not 5-star hotel yet. We thank you for your feedback.

For a born Penangite such as myself, choosing an airbnb back in my 'hometown' is a tough one. Although I no longer live in Penang, but it's always great everytime I'm back. Kelly is a great host and the property is exactly as advertised. Communications is seamless from beginning and Kelly is flexible on checking in/out, hence making the coordination fuss free. Would do a repeat for sure!
