The place is clean and it is a self contained unit.We were unable to use the swimming pool as we were short term tenants. Hopefully, they will change the policy. We will come back here when ever we are in Penang. Thank you, Victor for everything.

                                                              This was my wife and myself's first time using Homeaway. We were nervous and we had a lot of questions that Sharon answered very quickly. When we arrived, we found the place very spacious and clean with a pleasant look. The condo is exactly as advertised. The condo is fully furnished with quality furniture mostly solid wood and well decorated which was very tasteful and up-to-date. Staying here made us feel like a local. The location is ideal, very close to the beach, dining and shopping places and the adventure theme park - ESCAPE. Walking distance to public transport which lead you to Georgetown and Batu Feringghi without hassle, and the beach is few minutes stroll. Also despite being in the heart of Batu Feringghi, this place is remarkably quiet. I highly recommend this place if you like being by yourself and still be very close to the beach. The apartment itself is clean, the Wifi works very well. We were on working holiday and the internet speed is very fast, stable that we could do video conference and sending important large document without issues. Kitchen has everything you need for your stay. Sharon is great to deal with, being very friendly, helpful and great communication. The check in and check out process was a breeze! Parking is private and shaded, just few steps from the apartment. This was my first time using HomeAway and it couldn't have gone any better. Upon going back to South Beach I'll definitely stay here again. I would recommend this to anyone!

                                                              What a fantastic experience it was to stay in this unit and work with Sharon. The apartment has a fantastic location close to the beach, night market, food, etc. Just about everything we ever needed was around. The apartment itself was clean and spacious with the added bonus of an awesome unlimited internet access! The apartment is also suitable for long stay or second home. Very quiet and peaceful. Nice neighborhood & friendly staffs. The pool was great. We were in the pool every evening. Sharon was an awesome host, very accommodating and friendly. Anything we ever needed she was ready to provide. When I read so many positive reviews (well, some from other websites - Airbxx) I thought there was going to be some sort of catch but honestly this was everything I could have hoped for and more. The next time I come to Penang I have every intention of booking this unit again as I can't imagine it gets much better than this. Will absolutely be recommending this place to anyone traveling down there.
