What can I say. From the moment we met Lee we were sold. He had a personalised greeting note on his gate waiting for us on arrival and he soon ushered us into his home where he made us feel at home giving us full use of the kitchen and dvd collection. Lee was a gentleman and rather than have... More

The homestay is quite far away from the city centre but is a perfect stopover if you're heading to Perhentians. I arrived at Kota Bahru airport quite late and Mr Lee picked me up and drove me to the homestay. He also organised next day's transfer to the jetty and got me boat tickets (at the same price you would... More

After booking mr lee contacted me via email to see if i needed a taxi from the jetty, which I accepted and the guy was waiting. On arrival at mr Lees he greeted me gave me my keys, and showed me where the local town was.... More

It is impossible to rate Mr. Lee and his guesthouse any higher. I advise everyone to stay here, it is like staying with your Uncle that wants very much for you to report back to your Daddy what a great time you had in his town. We were here 3 nites and Mr Lee did everthing for us, and now... More

Nice, friendly owner. Not the type of guy to talk for hours, but more of a quiet, gentle mind. Always up for giving good advice and very concerned. At any time we wanted he would pick us up or drop us off in the city centre for free. He would give us a cellphone to call him. He even called... More

We stayed for only 1 night on July 12. It was a transit stop for catching the boat ride to the Perhentians the next morning. Mr. Lee's place is in a quiet neighbourhood, which is about a 10 min car ride to Chinatown area. Our room was clean with AC & ceiling fan. Fresh linen, towels, soaps are provided. We... More

We stayed at Lee's Guesthouse one night, in transit waiting for the Ferry to the Perhentians. When we booked, we just wanted a random place to stay, but what a nice surprise to meet Mr. Lee! First of all, the place is impeccably clean. The kitchen, the bathroom, the common area, our room, the bed linen. Really nice! Then, Mr.... More

Quite frankly perfect – and just what I needed. Lee picked me up from the airport at 11.30pm and took me to a clean AC room for the night. The following morning he arranged a nice breakfast and transfer to the Perenthian islands. Before leaving, he took me to town to repair my jeans at a tailor, get a hair... More

We stayed for just one short night, on our way from Kota Bharu to the Perhentians, to catch the first boat in the morning. Mr Lee picked us up from the airport when we arrived around midnight, and he did arrange the boat tickets to the Perhentians for us as well. Stayed in contact via text, reminding us to confirm...

We only stayed one night and Mr Lee was very helpful and organised transport and boat tickets both coming and going. The guest house is comfortable and clean and offered a basic breakfast of toast and cereal but it is well out of town. On the plus side, Mr Lee dropped us off at a local mall and picked us... More
