La Belle Maison 12 @ Gurney Kelawai/Pulau Tikus/Georgetown

George Town

Situated in George Town and only 1.8 km from Northam Beach, La Belle Maison 12 @ Gurney Kelawai/Pulau Tikus/Georgetown features accommodation with mountain views, free WiFi and free private parking. The air-conditioned accommodation is 2.9 km from Penang Botanic Gardens. The homestay has family rooms. The location is superbly close to where we needed to go. It's so close to the 2 malls that you can literally spot the house from across the road. The host Ms Kelly was very friendly, kind and accommodating. We were allowed to check in early and check out late which was very helpful in our situation. The room: We rented the deluxe room with bathroom and the room is exactly as pictured. In fact, we personally feel like the picture doesn't do the room its justice because they look even better in person, which is very rare for properties these days. The host is very meticulous about the property and its cleanliness, and in return we also made sure we kept the property as neat and clean as we possibly can. We felt very well taken care of because the host made sure we were comfortable with our stay and even provided us with a rice cooker for the rest of our stay. This property really makes you feel at home and I cannot recommend this highly enough. For anyone looking for a nice, clean, cosy stay close to Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon, this is your place! I can 1000% guarantee that you will fall in love with this property within 5 mins of checking in 😊 We stayed from 31st March till 7th April. We will be returning for sure 😊 Ms. Kelly, thank you so much for hosting us. Please look forward to our next booking 😊😊🫶🫶
