“Congratulations to Knocknock Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

This was my first gueshouse, clean, unique design, quite and well equipped private floor. My fav White clean linen was provided for the beds and I had a really good night's sleep. The atmosphere was friendly with people happy to chat to each other. All in all, a very good value and comfortable stays and I would definitely recommend it to other travellers.

Knocknock is one of those establishments that should not exist - at least according to text books.I mean how can somebody run a one-room business and yet do so well? The answer is that our  gracious host Augustine does everything with love and passion. And so when you book your       room at Knocknock you do not only get a huge space that accommodates up to 6 guests but a   custom-tailored program that will give your stay in Melaka a totally different dimension. 

We fully agree with everything others have said already about the place itself. It is simple excellence in great location, suitable for small families, groups of friends and even couples. If you have your own car, don't worry. In most cases you will be able to park right in front of the house. 

But let me go back to the added value that we found at Knockknock and that makes this place     really unique. Augustine is not only a passionate host but also a most knowledgeable guide whowill show you around, if you want. We ended up going to places that we would have never          discovered as ordinary tourists. In between we returned to "base camp" Knocknock, which           instantly felt like coming home. Yes, some places just got what it takes. And Knocknock is           one of them. There is no doubt - we will be back for more!

"key point" to get direction to wherever you wanna visit in Melaka with full of information and kindly guide from amazing host. We're treated not as a customer, but as members in one family - nothing to be hesitate, nothing to afraid, it's a true feeling with true friend. If I have 3 words to speak out loud about this place it should be "come and feel!" :)

This is the best place that I have ever been to. I love it because of the friendly environment and open space which made me feel as I am at home. The most thing I like was the bath room and home cinema. The bath room was designed in style of Bali bathroom, very wide and comfortable. And finally, the owners were so friendly that they helped us to discover all food and attractions in Maleka. Seriously, this is the place everyone should stay in when you are in Maleka.

It was my first time staying in a guest house which was somewhat different from my usual hotel stay. The place was albeit hard to locate initially since both me and my friend got lost, but Gus was so kind to come and pick us up from where we were. The place is tucked at a quiet street but still walkable distance to the nearby vicinity. Loved the toilet especially the rain shower ;) as well as the design of the place, very nostalgic! I truly enjoyed my stay at Knockknock home and will definitely recommend it.

Dear Eileen,Thank you so much for your kind review,really glad to hear that your 1st experience staying with a home stay rather then a hotel was great ! Actually location of Knocknock Home is very strategic ,it is located just behind the busy Bungaraya road in an century old quiet lane yet just 5-15 minutes walk to all Malacca's major attraction .The only problem is most of the taxi drivers in Malacca are not well trained,very sorry for the inconvenience caused.Glad you like the design of our " open concept shower area ",can't wait to welcome you again.

Want the best 'EXPERIENCE' in Melaka? Knock- knock home is the way to start. We stayed a 2 days 1 night ... And I must say, 'it is a night to remember'. As an Architect, I often participate in great attention to detail and the atmosphere/ mood within an architecture; And here I admit that Knock2Home not only provide warmth and homey feel, but it express of an old local building with a combination of modern fitting.

We were treated as distanced family and exposed to the local's culture and history. It certainly a weekend to remember. I cant wait for my next Melaka trip again.

Dear Gian,glad you like the simple design and interior of Knocknock Home,the building itself is about a century old and we must respect those who built it .Like this quote of yours “Architecture is a visual art, and the buildings speak for themselves.”- Julia Morgan quotes.Thank you for your kind review ,can't wait to welcome you as a family again.
