The property was a perfect venue for a large group of 6! Living spaces were very comfortable. Bedroom and bathroom facilities were very clean! Surrounding streets were residential properties and that allowed us to get a taste of what it feels like to stay in a local community. Sem was a great host who made the entire experience pain-free!

Words can't describe, an amazing place. Superb location. Brought me nostalgic feeling staying at Sem's place, cause I used to live in a shop house, when I was a kid. My parents were very happy, especially, my dad, as it brought him fond memories of his home once. 3rd Heritage Street is super clean and well organised. It was like a home stay with all comfort. Right at George Town, central location with a night hawker stalls outside the house selling varieties of local dishes. I went with my family (parents, sister and her family). It was a treat for my sister, who visited me in Singapore from US for summer holiday. I will recommend this place for a family stay or group of friends.

This place is fantastic for friends gathering. It is located in the center of the city. And just a road opposite one of the best prawn mee store (888 prawn mee) in Penang. We stayed for 2 days and the host is very nice and there are maps and books in the house to give us recommendation on places to visit. And there is a rice dumpling store who happens to be the neighbour. The rice dumpling is awesome. Only downside is that it can get abit noisy on saturday night for the room closer to the road.

Sem's place is a super spacious and homely heritage shophouse that comfortably housed our party of 7. Rooms are cozy and sizeable. Towels and bedsheets are spanking clean. Sem remained communicable throughout and his hospitality shined through. Sem's mum is super warm and lovely and she welcomed us with open arms. The location, while prime and smack in the thick of Georgetown, is a tad too noisy as the house is right by a main street. However I have no issue with this as I sleep like a log. Love the in-house beverage (URL HIDDEN) convenient to just top up our daily intake of water. Would gladly stay with Sem again for our future Penang trips!

Lovely apartment, close to the Unesco area of Georgetown. Was travelling as a family of 5, including 3 teenagers, and found the house was just what was required. Building has been recently renovated and is well appointed. Street outside could be noisy but I think this applies anywhere in the central area of Georgetown. Overall, a great place to stay and Sem was easy to deal with.
