We had a great time in Penang. We arrived late but that was no issue - we checked in quickly and Nick gave us the run-down of what there was to do and when was the best time to do it around the island. Any time we needed something Nick was quick to respond. Apartment was very comfortable and getting the swimming pool to ourselves was a nice perk too!

My family and I had a great stay at Branson's apartment at Straits Quay, a perfect location to base oneself in the Tanjung Tokong area. It is a comfy clean 1BR 2BA apartment, well-equipped with sofabed and extra mattresses, pillows, sheets, etc. to accommodate our family of 4. Branson is a friendly, attentive host, good with communications when needed. We would certainly book to stay here again. Thanks again Branson!

Is a prefect location for those who's looking a vacation at penang. There's stores and bars just right below the apartment therefore you don't have to drive out of the area to get snacks and drinks which is super convenient. Furthermore the host is super friendly and very responsive. They would recommend places for you to go during ur days in penang. We really enjoyed our stay there, well done!!

While my stay wasn't exactly the 5-Star experience that I'd hoped for, Branson & friends were true to their Superhost status by responding & looking into the unfortunate circumstances of the suite promptly & proactively. Thanks guys! :) Pretty sure that they will do their best in ensuring future guests' comfort & satisfaction. =)

Hi, I am Branson. I'm an avid traveller and passionate about sharing my life experience. I quitted my full time job as a financial analyst in 2015 to go on living my dream of living in different places. Having spent years travelling around Europe and Asia, I discovered one of the friendliest and lovable places on earth, Penang Island. Together with my team of friends, we call ourselves the Homestay Hero as we decided to host guests to our lovely home and island. We are very excited to share with you our journey and certainly understand what it takes to create a life-lasting memories for you, friends and family. Search for Cendol and Char Koay Teow, and I'm ready to recommend you more hidden gems of Penang!
