Photos and Description of this homestay apartment
Sunset Apartment - Modern and secure 2 bedroomed apartment with communal pool
Containing all the modern amenities you would expect in a holiday apartment, all towels, bedding, wifi, final cleaning and air con are also included in the rental charge. No extra's!
1st floor location - Two bedrooms, lounge/diner combined, balcony with pool views, kitchen, washing room and store room.
Flat screen TV with DVD (plays all region DVD's) and CD player (no satellite TV). Fitted kitchen, washing machine, drying and ironing facilities. Wifi.
The main bedroom has an Emperor sized bed, with en suite wet room/lavatory. The second bedroom has two single beds, with adjoining bathroom facilities. There is a fully kitted out kitchen, but as the food is so plentiful and inexpensive in Langkawi, it has not seen much action!
The lounge has a leather reclining sofa and chair, whilst the dining area has a table and seating for six people. The balcony overlooks the swimming pool.
Please note this is strictly a non-smoking apartment - smoking is allowed on the balcony however.
Shops and eateries can be found within easy walking distance.
Although the apartment is located in the islands capital town, it certainly does not suffer from 'city noise'. Adjoining a rainforest means that Macaque monkeys are regular visitors, and hornbills are also known to swoop in. Listening to the sounds of the forest at night is a pleasure in itself.
The complex is generally quiet during the day, and that also applies to the swimming pool. You certainly will not find yourself being crowded out in the pool, and its size means it is ideal for dedicated swimmers looking to exercise effectively. There is an adjoining paddling pool specifically for toddlers, and both pools are cleaned and treated daily. There is no life guard provided at any time though, and therefore swimmers use the facilities at their own risk.
The nearest beach to the apartment is about 1km away at Legenda Park, and this provides a sandy and quiet place to unwind. Also adjoining Legenda Park is a children's playground with loads of slides and swings for the kids to play on, as well as the local children for them to play with. There are more beaches on the island that are well worth a visit, but these will require a taxi or hire car to get you there.
The whole ambiance of the island is very laid back and friendly. English is widely spoken, tourists are welcomed, and most things are inexpensive in comparison to other continents. Langkawi is very different to its busier neighbour Penang, and may not be suitable for everyone. If you want a vibrant night life that continues till the early morning, and streets that bustle with traffic, then visit Penang. If you want a quieter, but more scenic environment, where good food is plentiful, and the locals are happy to see you, then visit Langkawi.
