This eye-catching staycation spot used to be a pre-war shophouse before it was renovated and turned into a homestay that can accommodate up to 12 people. Located within a row of Late Straits Eclectic-style shophouses, this 2-story building has 3 bedrooms and can also accommodate 2 extra beds if you have 12 people planning to stay here.
Its interior is also very charming, with vintage furniture and cute Chinese Opera cartoons painted on some walls. This accommodation is strategically located close to salons, art galleries, cafes, boutiques, photography studios, and even the laundrette! If a ☔rainy day hinders you from exploring the historical city of George Town, you can always turn on the karaoke machine and sing to your heart's content! Plus, the roadside parking space only costs RM6 per day, but be ready to face difficulty finding one during the weekends. Past guests also reported that there are parking spaces that are slightly further away, but you'll have to walk a bit.
