We stayed here for 3 nights enroute to Taman Negara from Langkawi. We're backpacking for 1 year so were looking for something affordable on a budget and clean. We were not disspointed. The room was part of a 6 bedroom apartment which was like staying home from home. Very nicely decorated, clean, cosy lounge and TV area to hang out in and one of the best hosts we have met during our trip. Jay! What a lovely lady. She went out of her way to make sure we were happy, organised and had enough information about the area so that we could enjoy our time in the cameron highlands. We did lots of the local trails which were beautiful. Some easy and some tough! If you like trekking you MUST do Mt Brinchang. Amazing walk/climb through the rainforest, climbing over tree roots, mossy walkways and looking through the enchanting forests. The apartment block is about 7mins walk down a small hill to get to the Main Street where the few shops and cafes are. We loved our stay here and would like to thank Jay for her hospitality and warm heart. We enjoyed meeting you.

I am really happy that i ended up at Gerard's Place. Cosy rooms, huge living room and kitchen, beautiful garden. You feel there like at home. And it is not only because of the place, it because of the heart you can feel there. It is thanks to Jay!
She will answer your questions patiently, she will help organize you any trip you wish, she will bring you the most exotic plants, spices you wish and explain about Malaysia's people, land and culture.
Beautifully located, magic place.

What else should I say after all the other reviews? A very warm welcome, very clean room and a living area like you're at home. The place is quiet and the view from the balcony is wonderfull. Jay arranged my mossy forest tour and the bustickets to go to langkawi. I would really reccomend this place to anyone visiting the cameron highlands! Thanks for the great stay.

What should I add to all the good reviews of Gerard's Place?
The place is fabulous, we always said 'Let's go home' instead of 'Let's go to our hostel' :) The apartment consists of a large living room with corner sofa (and big TV), a kitchen and 7 rooms. The living room was the place to meet the others, we spent quite a few hours there. The beds were wide and of excellent quality!!
The two shared bathrooms (with shower & toilet) were clean. Ceiling fans were there, but weren't used as the year round 21 degrees was perfect. Free wifi and computer available. Gerard friendly showed us the way after checking in @Father's Guesthouse (!). Do book in advance when staying in peak season.

Stayed here for 2 nights in October 2012. Jay, the owner, picked us up in her 4x4 from Father's Guesthouse down the road and took us to the apartment, where we were the only ones staying at the time! We had use of the lounge area and kitchen to ourselves, and took the en suite room which was perfectly decorated. Jay helped us get our bearings, and even gave us a mini tour of Tanah Rata in her car. Afterwards she helped us choose a tour for the following day and gave us numerous food recommendations. She was the most helpful host the entire time we were in Malaysia, and even let us borrow things like an umbrella for the downpours!

If you're coming to the Cameron Highlands you shouldn't stay ANYWHERE else.

The room is in an apartment. Room (with balcony) was spotless clean and you share a bathroom. The water of the shower could be hotter. The sitting area is also nice!

Breakfast is self-service: toast with jam and coffee or tea.

Jay, the owner, is very spontaneous and super-super-friendly! I had problems with my bank card and she immediately took time to help me out. She even offered us some lunch cause I had a cash problem! ;-) She surely made me feel very welcome!

The place is only a 5 min. walk down from the main street.

Jay also arrange tours (Cameron Secrets) and mini van transfers to Kota Bharu (to go to the Perhentians).

Don’t hesitate to stay here! A lovely stay with a super-friendly host for an acceptable price!

I was actually sad I had to leave the Cameron highlands because I liked Gerard's place so much! It had a very homey feeling to it. The rooms and bathroom were really clean and Jay was so helpful showing me around! I definitely recommend it!
