The house is designed with the 1960s retro look in mind. Located right in the middle of Penang's popular golden triangle , it is a mere 5 mins walk to the Gurney Plaza and Paragon shopping malls & restaurants. It is also walking distance to the best fresh market in town , Pulau Tikus market .
My neighbourhood comprises of private residences of pensioners hence has always been very quiet and safe for ladies to stay

The space

The room is ideal for a couple who likes some quiet time away from the busy city traffic . The room's private entrance is at the end of a beautiful lush garden . The attached private bathroom is small , but fully equipped with toilet , wash basin and hot shower .

Guest access

There is a great big hall in the main house where guests can relax . The kitchen cum dining area is well equipped for guests to make their own breakfast . We have bread and a toaster in the pantry for weary travelers wanting to have a lazy morning .
There are built in garden seats for the guests in Rose Room to enjoy the tranquility of the garden .

Interaction with guests

I leave a welcome message in the rooms where i share my personal dining preferences around the neighbourhood with my guests . To enable my guests to optimise on their short stay with me , I have specially created my own 2 day Tour Itinerary for them .

Other things to note

Most guests love the location as we are walking distance to G Hotel and the shopping malls, restaurants , local cafes , street hawkers .
We are also 10 minutes walk to the Indonesian Embassy , so ideal for visa runs . The Adventist Hospital is just next to the Indonesian Embassy .

Although i didn't get to meet the host as she was not in town and my part on booking the place on a very short notice.The host had my room prepared for me and she guided me perfectly on how to check in by my self and she was always in contact with me and checking on me. The room and Bathroom was clean and perfect. plus the room having its own entrance to the garden was great so that i didn't have to go through the house to enter my room. there were a lot of hawker food stalls just 5 min walk from the house and a big mall which was like 10 min walk from the house.

You Von's place is perfect for a trip to Penang. The area is lovely and quite but it's only a very short walk to the Gurney Plaza and the station for the hop-on-hop-off bus. The house itself is lovely and the bed is very comfy. You Von was a fabulous host. Despite being away she made the check-in and check-out process very easy and her guides for the area allow you to maximise your time in Penang. You Von offers all of this for a very good price. 100% recommend
