Truly feels like home...

Nice house and big space for family .Gary is nice and friendly. Thank you and see you again in future,

** Just a feedback, fridge too small and can not open due to frosted.

Gary-W replies:

Hi Jimmy,

Thank you for your stay.
Yes, the fridge is a small one usually used in hotels.
The fridge is okay now, just that the guests do not used it often. Will consider your suggestion for a bigger one.

Take care and stay touch.

Had a good experience :D
House was big and nice.

It's not hard to find the place too. Located in between the Gurney and Batu Ferrenghi area. Tesco and Straits Quay is just nearby.

Although Gary wasn't around, he managed to arrange a friend to pass us the keys, show us the directions and all.

Highly recommended :)
Will be looking forward to my next trip.

Gary-W replies:

Hi Zen,

Thank you for the recommendation.
My apology for some inconveniences in returning the keys.
Yes, I do look forward to your next visit and hopefully, I can personally serve you.

Take care and stay touch :)).

Gary

The environment was clean, comfortable, fully furnished and equipped with all home appliances. If you wanna get a the steamboat or BBQ stuffs, there you will find it and just bring your own food for cooking. The Astro NJOI channels has been installed and some old DVD are available too. We spent our relaxing night watching a comedy filmed by Steven Chow. Owner is nice and friendly too. I would recommend this nice house to others as it had provided us a comfortable place to rest after a tired travelling day.

Gary-W replies:

Dear Mr Yong,

Thank you for the recommendation.
Do come again for your next stay when you are in Penang.
Take care and have a nice day.

Gary

Hello Gary,

Thanks for making sure the house was "superb clean" during our stay and making sure we reach your place accurately. All of us were happy with your place, until the last day where our Car was scratched by one of your neighbours or someone who don’t want us to park around that area although we were NOT blocking anyone.

In terms of location, your place was strategically located. It takes around 20 minus to reach batu ferringi area (more during peak season). Just a suggestion, you may want to put mirrors in all your room , add some removable single beds inside the room beside the toilet and fix the upstairs toilet door as it can be easily opened.

Once again Thanks for accommodating us and hope you will get more guest.

Rgds

Gary-W replies:

Hi Nick,

First of all, thank you for the stay.
We regret that your car was scratched during your stay in that area, but definitely not inside/outside the house compound. We will try to find out more and we appreciate that you keep us informed about this incident.

Yes, we will look into your suggestions and improvise......
Also, we thank you for keeping the place clean before you left. It is always nice to have guests like you......

All the best!!

Regards,
Gary
