Please let me know your estimated time of arrival and check out after you've booked.
No smoking or candles are allowed in the house because of the timber. This is a self-serviced apartment so the cleaning service is arranged only for long stay guests.
Please turn off the air-conditioners when you're going out.
Guests should come with an eye and heart to appreciate George Town's vernacular architecture. While the apartment has been outfitted with modern amenities, it is still a 100+ year old house with old floorboards and vintage furniture and is best treated with tender loving care.
I've lived in Malaysia, Singapore, the US, UK and parts of Europe. I'm a writer and have authored a travel book on Malaysia. As a traveller, I believe in a more "authentic" experience and getting a sense of the local way of life. That's why the Airbnb hosting appeals to me.
