Property Description

GPS : (Lat 2 deg 11' 34' N, 102 deg 15' 15' E)
Situated in the UNESCO Zone & is one of the last few heritage villages in this historical part of the town, our accommodation gives out the best of both worlds - walking distances to most tourist attractions (both historical & modern) and has a surrounding which is peaceful and with a touch of local traditional elements. (Malay/Chinese/Dutch)

Built in 1912 this partly wooden and brick house is equipped with updated facilities in the event you require so. We have a large garden and a traditional wooden hut for guests to relax in and at the same time socialize with fellow guests.

All interior is kept in its original design, where we provide private rooms with air conditioning or fan and with attached bathrooms if one prefers. A relaxing lobby with an air well and an old kitchen fire stove is maintained as part of our heritage.

ADVISE & REMINDERS :

>This accomodation may not be suitable for those who has no previous experience living in Guesthouses/Villages/Homestay environment.
>Guests are advised to keep peace after 10.30pm.
>This accomodation is mostly made of wood (traditional) so the ambience is different from most Guesthouses.

    Awesome local place away from the business of Melaka, also a farm type atmosphere with fruit trees, chickens and included breakfast of local food. Highly recommended.

    Lovely people and house, amazing breakfast with local delicacies. Lots of pets and great garden. Fans do a great job of keeping you cool and drowning out the cockerels in the morning. Located in nice area near schools and some good food places. Got bitten lots during the night though.

    The space reminded me of my nostalgic late granny’s house which is no longer exists anymore. Comfortable room & bed, clean bathroom. Great Kampung(village) surroundings with happy chickens, turkey and cats walking around. Perfect location, hidden in a nearby Kampung which is walking distance from all the main attractions. Friendly and helpful host family, totally happy and comfortable stay for us. Thank you Apa Kaba for the space.

    Amazing cozy and warm hostel. The guy was very hospitable even though we showed up late at night he managed to set up and prepare our room. He also helped me download apps to buy tickets online and get cars. Amazing service,

    Beautiful place located in a lush garden, it almost feels like a farm. It's just outside the city, yet away from the noise. It's a heritage building so don't expect luxury! The walls are paper thin, so you'll hear everything your neighbors next door are saying. It was quite empty when we stayed so it was OK. Lots of mosquitoes around so bring a repellent. They have many cats roaming around which is lovely but one particular one was meowing the whole night.. every day lol would come again tho :)

    Be warned not all rooms have aircon. Read the description carefully as the facilities list is deceptive. I didn't realise when I booked and we ended up in a room with fans only. It isn't enough in this heat. Would really help the rating if they made all rooms aircon. Bit hard to find on taxi and fyi it has 2 entrances. The entrance/lobby needs a freshen up/dust and showers are cold with some mozzies. However the staff were really nice and the breakfast was great. This place has great potential!

    Definitely a funky place, comfortable but a bit weird. Certain rooms do not have air conditioning, so don't put too much trust in the list of amenities. Freindly staff and good location.
