Knocknock is one of the best home stays we have been to till date.. Friendly and helpful hosts who are so passionate about Melaka and more than happy to share their home with you.. An entire floor of about 1000 Sqft is all yours for a very reasonable price and 4 people can stay there without stepping on each others toes..
Shower areas with natural light and bamboo blinds as partitions is much appreciated and very different to the brick walls we generally shower within.. All modern facilities including wi-fi, projectors, DVD players, fridge and dining table..
Truly to the significance of the heritage town of Melaka, knocknock makes you feel you are right there with a lot of antiques placed within your living area.. This place is just a minute's walk to the river and maybe about 5 minutes walk to the old town.. or maybe it actually is part of the old town..
With clean bathrooms, and well done bedrooms, there is nothing to really complain about this place.. In fact, i'm trying hard to think of something that was out of place, but there is none that I can pin down to pen down..
We were there for only 2 nights, and Gus wanted us to try so much of the food there that he used to go out and buy some awesome pre breakfast for us.. This apart from taking us around and showing us the best places in Melaka to have breakfast, lunch and dinner.. In fact, he wanted us to try the oyster omlette there that when he realized that we didn't have sufficient time to try that, he went out while we were out, bought it and hung it in a packet outside our door, to welcome us when we returned later that night.. :)
Thanks Gus for the wonderful time and the hospitality shown to us while we were there.. A special word of thanks to Augustus as well..
