A nicely preserved Batik Themed floor in a 3 storey shophouse. It features a semi outdoor shower with our DIY solar hot water system. It is eco friendly with most furniture salvaged from previous tenant, so they are kind of antiques too.

It is on the 1st(upper) floor of a 3 storey heritage house. There is no room, but 2 queen sized beds at 2 corners. Some privacy is allowed with the batik curtains. There is a small kitchen & bathroom at the back which isn't shared. Originally, it is an outdoor kitchen on a balcony. Since we needed a bathroom for each floor, we used 1/2 the space for a really nice bathroom.

We tried to preserve as much as possible when we renovated this house. We also tried to be as much environmental friendly as possible. Thus, you can notice many old window panels, woods & furniture. Almost all windows were salvaged from a near by renovation, where they threw out many old windows & doors. We also salvaged many woods, and we bought reclaimed wood as well.

All furnitures are from the original tenant who have stayed there for 4 generations! We fixed and we used.

The house is very eco friendly with our DIY solar water heater & air conditioner water collection for toilet flush.

There are many eateries around. There are malay and mamak(Indian muslim) restaurants opposite which operate till very late of the night. There is a nice bread bakery 2 doors away, it smells good. There is also a bakery school few doors away, so you can sign up for it if you are interested. It is very convenient with clinic, convenient store around. You can walk to many of the historic sites, we suggest renting bikes.

Since it is a wooden heritage house, sound insulation wasn't in the mind when it was first built. So, please walk & talk softly, as the people from upper or lower could hear you easily.

Check out my other listings on the same building. There are another 2 rooms if you have more people.

Kamasutra - Giant BirdCage: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1991445

We will most likely only get in touch through email or the messaging system on Airbnb. We will not meet up, but I might knock on your door if I happen to be around to just say hi to you.

It is very convenient as it is in the heart of the town. You may walk to most places if you want. We also suggest renting a bicycle to tour the town, no uphill and down hill, just leasure ride.

1) sound insulation is minimum, please talk & walk softly.
2) as there are some restaurants opposite, it could be a problem if you are sensitive to sound.
3) BRING YOUR EAR PLUGS for better sleep.
4) no cable or satelite TV, only regular over the air channels. There is DVD player, so bring your own DVDs if you want some movie watching.
5) bring your own padlock for better security.
6) for long term guest, electricity is capped at rm10/day, which is more than enough for normal use.
7) no towels, bring your own for your personal hygiene
8) non black out curtains, so there is some light at night
9) it might get dusty when you check in as it is facing a main street, and the windows cannot be closed off completely. Rest assured that the house is cleaned after each check out. It might be cleaned several days before you check in. There are broom & mop should you need them. If cleanliness is utmost important to you, this house might not be your choice.

** I reserve the right to move you to another room within the same building for free(or refund in difference if cheaper) in case of emergency.

After you check in if the room is not up to your standard, please call or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) me. I will try to send cleaner in to clean it again. DO NOT complain about it being dusty after your stay.

Please bring along earbuds to have good sleep at night (the noise from outside and upstairs is unavoidable) and also don't forget to bring along your towel!

The best location in terms of centrality, not too inside the old town but so easy to walk into it and grab some of the famous food! Can can be a bit noisy in the evening as some of the said famous food is being sold across the street but is nothing a pair of ear plugs can't keep out. Also these will help if you have elephants for neighbours like I did as the floors aren't very thick... Overall though can't knock the place, has everything you need and feels like an authentic old Penang household. The host is also more than accommodating and communicative. Thanks for having me!

Very nice place to stay. We stayed couple of nights in the room above (with bird cage). This is even greater place. However, we enjoyed being there so much that we decided to extend our time and booked this room. Lainux was very open and flexible with everything. There is no other place where we would go if we came back! Great location to walk everwhere in town or get good local food.

We were happy to have stayed in both the batik room and the birdcage/kamasutra room. Great atmosphere, great location and good communication with host. Due to holliday season there were some changes with check in/ cleaning, but the good communication with Lainux made it work out well. As said in the discription: very noisy! Would reccomend staying here.

Cool place if you want to stay in an authentic, rustic place. Enjoyed the natural shower and the color scheme. Good location to Little Indian/Chinatown.

I like to travel and love to stay at alternative lodging to hotel. After getting involved in this BNB project, I have become more handy. I believe in a unique experience & design. Thus, most of our places are done by me & friends. Many furnitures are done by me. I am now able to do plumbing work, electrical wiring(though I have degree in EE), carpenting & more. I enjoy all the challenges I faced.

I believe in recycle, reuse & repurpose. You can see many of the things used are done this way. Also, I tried to work many of the eco friendly elements into my places. Latest project was a solar water heater, rain water & air cond water collection for toilet flushes.

I hope you like my designs & effort that I put in. Do feel free to drop me a line for anything.
