Went to Malacca for a short break. A 3D2N trip.
Like the spacious room, the location (so convenient that encourages us to keep shopping and buying stuff, and putting it back to the house) and most importantly, the house is extremely clean. The host is super sweet and very helpful. They have even prepared a small folders with all the 'must see' / 'must try'. It helps a lot when we want to decide where to go / what to eat.

For those driving to Malacca (like me), the house comes with parking (free). :D

Special thanks joe & christie for the hospitality ~

Calanthe homestay was amazing, its not only a heritage site but a house filled with tiny details. The interior and exterior designs are really creative. We cycled to melaka and we had no issue parking 6bicycles at the car porch. The outdoor area has nice hanging plants and wall arts which makes the atmosphere really magical. It was great that bathtowels were provided, eventhough theres only one bathroom, the shower room was new and bright. We really enjoyed our stay here and the hospitality of our host danial. We also tried the 13 states local complimentary coffee from the cafe just few blocks away. A must go for coffee lovers as it is the only cafe in malaysia that serves coffee from all 13 states of malaysia!!

It was truly a unique experience, living in a true historical house. Our host is very nice and tentative to our needs. The host is also a certified tour guide, and kindly offered us a free tour. We learned a lot about Melaka through our host. Jonker street is within walking distance and the loft comes with a huge parking lot. Highly recommended.

Great location for the family over the X'mas holidays! Ease of booking with them and they offered much flexibility to us. Upon arrival, Joe, the host also made us feel welcomed. There was a welcome message on the chalkboard for us too! They have a cafe and jewelry/accessory shop which also featured much creativity. Place is huge and we had 2 cars parked and space for kids to run around. Overall, definitely an interesting experience and would suit someone looking for a different experience in the old town. Just to note it may not suit people who have difficulty taking the stairs as that's the way to the 2 king size beds. Alternative option is to sleep downstairs at the AV room that can easily fit 3 adults.
