Thank you to Susie for a wonderful month in this lovely 2 bed apartment. This apartment is on the 13th floor, so has magnificent views,and you can watch the parasails, jetskis, and fishing boats without the noise.
Being one street back from the main Batu Ferrenghi beach is not a problem as it is just a walk across the road, and down a short pathway through beautiful shady trees to the beach. The beach itself looks beautiful, but with all the motor boats, etc, and the look of the water I would not bother to try swimming there. But lovely to walk along and see the sites.
The unit itself is well set out and well equipped for a home away from home. The little extras that Susie provided to get you going, like tea coffee milk, and fruit.
There was plenty of washing up detergent, loo paper, body wash, washing powder and softener to last the month of our stay.
The apartment is very comfortable, and exactly as shown in the photos, with one exception, I think the balcony looks smaller in the photo, than it really is.
On arrival at Penang airport, Susie had a driver waiting for us, to take us up to the other end of the Island to Batu Ferrenghi. It was a lovely start to a great holiday, as our driver spoke perfect English, and filled us in on what to do and where to go. If you are staying for a week or more, I would advise to get a weekly bus pass, for RM30, Aus$10 for the week, or you can get a monthly pass, so long as you have a photo copy of your passport, and a photo of yourself. There are several places you can pick these up, including the airport. look under Rapid Bus Service Penang for info. It is not usually a rapid service, but a great inexpensive way to get around the island, and the state of Penang. Don't miss the ferry to Butterworth either, if you have time.
