In need of upgrading
We stayed at this apartment for two weeks, while the apartment was clean, the equipment is in need of replacement, the bedding was not fresh and needs replacing also towels had holes in them and did not smell fresh, shower curtain was in shreds, although replaced when we complained we had to buy sheets and towels as we found theirs not freshly laundered and shabby, this could be a good rental if the owners updated their shoddy equipment and had towels and bedding freshly laundered after each guest.
Thank you for your feedback. We have been running this business for 5 years and receiving 33 reviews on this website and all of them were rated with FULL stars. We washes bedding every single time when our guest check out even though with 2-3 days short stay (We knew some hosts did not do so). We not only washed towels, bed sheets, pillow cases but quilt cover/comforter too. However with your feedback, I will review the laundry service. It is totally unfair and miss lead by simply gave the judgement that our bed linen was not laundered. We deeply apologize about the shower curtain. We did not aware it was torn could be due to the cleaning lady during housekeeping before your arrival. And it was folded and hanged nicely on the rail to cover up the defect. We would have got it changed if we found out earlier. A new replacement has been sent to you immediately once being notified. Besides, we were not communicated about the bed linen issue during your stay, we would gladly give you a new set if we were told about your concerns.
Clean, Spacious, Nice Fitted Condo
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!
Very good .Thanks
Very happy with our stay at Sharon's condo. Everything went very smoothly. All emails answered promptly and whole experience dealing with the owner Sharon was quick and easy. The condo was very clean and provided everything we needed for our stay. Miami Green offers excellent facilities with an amazing pool. The staff at the complex were always very friendly and helpful and the security was excellent. It is in a good location. We had a car for our stay so found it very easy to visit the different locations Penang has to offer. We have been to Penang many times before but this was the first time we stayed at Sharon's condo. We would recommend it and hope to stay again next time we visit.
Fantastic Miami Green
I and my husband stayed in Miami Green for six weeks last winter. The apartment of Sharon and Leslie is beautiful: is quiet, spacious, clean, bright and well furnished. The kitchen is equipped, there is air conditioning and wi fi works fine. It is very relaxing stay by the pool area, sunbathing or swimming or go to the gym. Two minutes on foot is the bus stop to go to the supermarket or to Batu Ferringhi. Sharon and Leslie are always avaliable and ready to help for any need. I'd like that in the building there was a small shop with basic necessities. We loved it, and we felt like home, in fact next December we return in Miami Green.
comfortable apt and great location
Sharon was very helpful and accommodating, the condo is done up well, spacious, clean and very comfortable. Everything you need for a holiday with home basics. The pool is a great especially with children, the beach being just opposite is a plus. Location is very convenient, with a Tesco nearby and lots of shops.
We had a wonderful time, thank you Sharon, will definitely recommend the condo for holidays.
Great Stay at Miami Green
Good vacation choice for family stay. The home unit is coming with complete facilities and well-maintained. Swimming pool and kids playground is my gal's favarite. Nice surrounding with great privacy. 10 mins walk to the beach. Batu Ferringhi laksa stall nearby in less than 5 mins ride is famous and well known by local people. We spent great moment and thanks for the nice arrangement.
6-8 min minutes walk across to the beach and public transport. The bus is a lot cheaper and more fun, but a taxi will get you to destination quicker.
7-10 minutes drive to the famous Batu Ferringhi Spice Garden, night market, restaurants and local food court.
10 minutes to latest and the first retail marina, i.e. Straits Quay, Tesco, Island Plaza - Cold Storage supermarket, Coffee Bean.
12 min to Penang National Park, Butterfly Farm, Penang Hard Rock Cafe
15 minutes to the famed Gurney Drive for the best of Penang's Hawker & street specially with centres and markets along the way.
20 minutes to Georgetown Heritage City Centre.
The airport is about 55 minutes - 1 hour away (if traffic is smooth).
Night market takes place 7-10 min driving from the apartment. In the evening there are many stalls along the roads where you can buy anything you want. For example bags, watches, cd´s, dvd´s, clothes, suitcases and all kinds of souvenirs. You can have dinner at any of the many restaurants available. At the hawker centre you can choose from European, Japanese, Vietnam, Middle East, Indian or Chinese food.
For a wide selection of European foods it is best to go to The Ship. In this replica of a galleon they serve an excellent steak. At the fish restaurant Eden, they serve the best fish dishes. During the weekend the restaurant is very busy with people from Georgetown.
Since the apartment is on Batu Feringghi, one can explore many attractions in the north along the coastal road besides Batu Ferringhi beaches and night market, namely Penang National Park, Penang Butterfly Farm, Teluk Bahang Dam, Tropical Spice Garden, Hard Rock Cafe, Tropical Fruit Farm or even go for a round island tour down to Balik Pulau for some durian if it's in the season.
Many people go for trips on the island, as Penang is an island where there is always something to do and no chance of getting bored.
There are plenty of opportunities to do aquatic sports. You can rent a catamaran, surfboard or jetski. You can also go parasailing or make a banana boat ride. Boats sail to for instance Monkey beach.
Another possibility is to book an excursion to Pula Payer (just 2 hours by boat), where you can snorkel amongst the Coral Reef and feed small sharks. Anyone who does not feel like going on an excursion, there is plenty to do along the beach.

How To Get To Miami Green
(1) Arrive at Penang International Airport - served by a range of airlines including Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Air Asia, Firefly Airlines. The airport is located in the southern part of Penang Island. Note that the airport is undergoing major renovation works at the moment although flight services are running as scheduled.
(2) A taxi from the airport is the best way of getting to the apartment, especially after a long flight. Taxis at the airport are readily available. There is a taxi counter at the arrival lounge at a prescribed coupon rate. Always confirm the price with a taxi driver as a matter of good practice. We will be very happy to arrange for transport privately if you prefer (at competitive rates).
(3) Hiring a car is certainly worth considering as it will make getting around much easier, allowing you to enjoy Penang at your own pace. Here are a couple of providers.
That said, hiring a car is not essential. Taxis are plentiful and many will agree to chauffeur you around all day at a day rate. Batu Ferringhi is also well served by public buses (Rapid Penang bus routes 101 and 103 at the time of writing).
