I am Jern and my wife Kai. Both of us like to travel and meet new friends from different countries. We had the experiences been hosted by others during our one year stay at New Zealand. Every host gave us different experiences. So we wish to do the same to others.
We started hosting since April 2015. Currently we are doing Airbnb for full time. We work from home most of the time. We enjoy hosting people all over the world. We love meeting new guests and eventually we become friends. It is fun and nice to share our travel experiences to the guests and we would love to hear from the guests too.
Besides hosting, we traveled with Airbnb as well. We went to South Korea in 2015 and Taiwan in 2016. We travel not only for the tourist spots, the most important thing is to understand the local culture, people, food, language, history... We prefer to stay at the local's house instead of hostel, guesthouse or hotel.
In 2017, we plan to do some local tours like hiking tour, Penang food tour, countryside tour, Georgetown walking tour... All still in planning stage. But if you have interest on any tours, please do let us know and lets see how can we serve you. Penang Hill Hiking Tour is available now. Please do let me know if you have interest on this.
Please do note that this is not a hotel, this is our house. So please don't treat us like a hotel staff. We are always happy to chat and have a cup of tea or coffee with you if we have time.
Please take your time to read our listing descriptions before booking.
Wish to meet you soon and we welcome you to stay at our place!
