“Wonderfully Comfortable Place to Stay”
Reviewed September 3, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is as fine a place two people could stay in Penang as one could want. The location is very quiet, just steps to restaurants and shops. Out of the hustle and bustle of George Town. Yet you can get to Gurney Drive for 15 RM and downtown for 25 RM, both within 10 to 20 minutes, depending on traffic.
The one bedroom unit has two baths and a very comfortable deck. Everything is spotlessly clean. WiFi works well and is fast. The frig comes stocked with some water, juice, and makings for a couple of breakfasts.
There is good sightseeing information in the unit, and a wide selection of movies. A washing machine is a nice touch. We found it better to just dry clothes on the provided rack and skip using the dryer.
You won't find a nicer unit near George Town to rent. The owner is a joy to work with. Highly recommended!

“Feels like coming home away from home. Outstanding!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I stayed with my daughter at Shintas apartment for almost one week and right from the beginning on it felt like home, we didn’t even want to leave it that often! The relaxed modern interior combines perfectly luxury, style and warm comfort.
The kitchen is fully equipped: from coffee-maker, to dishwasher and up to washing-machine with dryer. The fridge was well-stocked with even some goodies for my daughter. There´s plenty of towels (even for the Pool) and toiletries in the bathrooms. There is W-Lan and in the bedroom´s long desk/drawer you can even find a printer/scanner and office supplies. All in all more amenities than we´ve expected.
Shinta knows how to make you feel truly at home she knows how to treat people well. So does her husband. They both know a lot about travelling worldwide and what one might be looking for. We can hardly recommend a stay at her place and for sure: it will become your home away from home.

“Perfect Penang base with flexible and hospitable hosts”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

A wonderful one-bedroom apartment with every facility you could require for a stay in the fascinating city of Penang. Spotlessly clean, fully equipped with even a washing machine so you can pack very lightly. The bed is comfortable and the two bathrooms have all amenities, even pool towels. Food and drinks were generously provided to welcome us to the property.
The apartment is very convenient, about 1/3 of the way from Georgetown to Batu Farringhi on a newly-reclaimed area of land. It is situated in a very smart complex above a shopping plaza with a number of bars and restaurants. The nearest supermarket is around 5 minutes walk, with a larger one about 15 minutes walk. There is a lovely swimming pool on the premises - much time was spent relaxing there. There is also a small gym.
The hosts were wonderful and even collected us from a nearby hotel on the day of arrival to save us finding it by taxi. They were very easy to deal with and very obliging. We are already plannng our next stay!

“Absolutely Complete!”

Even in the first few hours after we arrived for a 3-week stay at this condo, we found ourselves amazed at what the owner had provided: not just yogurt and eggs in the fridge, but among other things, olive oil, vinegar, a full set of seasonings, plastic wraps, cooking sheets, a shopping bag (for Tesco and wet markets) and an extensive selection of DVDs.

And then we discovered that there was also a printer/scanner and office supplies in the very practical room-length desk/drawer in the bedroom. This was when our minds were officially blown.

Also, the cleaning lady, Sum, was very resourceful. She was able to solve a problem with the cable TV while Shinta was out of town.

The bus stop (for 102 that goes to the airport) is right in front of Straits Quay, which allowed us to take the bus to Komtar with luggage. The bus stop for 101/103/104 is in front of Tesco.
