“Great Melaka stay”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

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.

From road side hawker food, to klebang's coconut float, we loved every single bit of it! Gus was a great host and never failed to surprise us with the food and also the history of the area. Too bad i missed out Ak47's thai dinner, i have to try it one day!

It is my best experience in home stay. We do feel free as it is like in our own home in Melaka. The design is like an ancient kampong style room and hall. The owner recommended many nice hangout place in Melaka, he treated us like his family. I love staying there.

Room Tip: The whole room is ours.

We stayed just one night at Knockknock Home, but it was one of the high points of our two week trip to Malaysia. Augustine and Augustus were fantastic hosts. They met us at the door, helped us with our bags, and made us feel completely at home. We had the whole upstairs to ourselves, which, as a family of five with three little tykes, made a huge difference for us. It was such a relief to be able to spread our legs a little bit and actually have some room for the kids to sprawl out. The room is beautifully designed - especially the psychedelic lime green bath - but it feels personal and unique rather than designed by some corporate interior decorator. One of the coolest aspects was that Augustine let us use his DVD movie projector to shwo Jurassic Park on the wall - our kids were blown away. Augustine also told us about the historical aspects of Melaka and tok us out to a great Indian spot for breakfast in the morning. All in all, we couldn't have been happier with our decision to stay at Knockknock

been to melaka for few days in june so decided to stay with augustus at knock knock home , have read their review before but i would never expect so much when i step in the room . The space is huge and able to cater 6 guests, unique design with some peranakan feel . Well the stay is so comfort, its certainly different from the stay at any 5 star hotel where you are just staying for deal only , knock knock home is just like another home where you can rest very well. The place is really strategic too where i can get access to local tourist spot with 5-10 minutes walk. It is my pleasure to have a stay with both augustine and augustus. recommended place to stay when you are in melaka, It is really a good home for your friends and family trip.
