ShophouseExperience in Nostalgic Georgetown! House in bad shape before and now a restored heritage home. Great location, Well-connected to many historic sites and attractions yet located in a charming lane. Quiet space for a good sleep - an Oasis to escape the heat and noise in a bustling Asian oldtown.

The heritage house is in a great location and a very comfortable place to stay. The caretakers across the street are very nice and helpfull when the power in the street suddenly went off for a little while. Things to be aware of prior to booking: No fridge, the front of the house is occupied by a teahouse through which you enter the airbnb, beautiful outside bathroom area connected to terrace. We enjoyed our stay.

We were in Penang for a weekend getaway and really enjoyed our stay. It was a unique experience in the shophouse, especially with the high ceilings, outdoor shower, rooftop and airwell features. The place was also well located within walking distance of almost all the attractions in George Town :)

Very cool, spacious apartment/home with lots of character in the heart of George Town. The place was clean and just as described. The location was amazing - George Town is a very walkable city, but this apartment is just steps away from Armenian Street and Beach Street which is perfect. The host was very easy to contact and quick to respond. I'd highly recommend staying here.
