Penang Seaview Apartment Home
Condo | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Penang Seaview, our brand new holiday home on the beautiful island of Penang is located right long the tourist belt of Batu Ferringhi.
Slightly inset from the beach front (a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach), and on the side of a hill, the location of Penang Seaview offers both the cool comfort of being near the hills while looking out on to an amazing sea front view, direct from the balcony.
The apartment itself is fully furnished with 3 bedrooms and can sleep up to six people. The master bedroom with a double bed, also has an en-suite bathroom. The other two bedrooms are set out with twin beds and a single bed with a pull-out. All bedrooms have a mid-sized wardrobe and drawers. There is an additional shower room located near the second and third bedrooms.
The living room has a luxurious L-shaped sofa with a TV and media set. This is directly adjoins the balcony via sliding glass doors from which an amazing seaview awaits.
The dining area will seat six people comfortably with a glass-topped dining table and designer dining chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric hob, rice cooker, fridge-freezer and kettle. All necessary cooking utensils, dishes and cutlery are provided.
The utility area is complete with a top-loading washing machine and a drying area to hang the clothes. An iron and ironing board is also provided. There are also numerous laundrettes nearby.
All bedrooms and the living room are air-conditioned with individual, remote controlled units, although the breeze from the outdoors and fans often makes it unnecessary.
Within the property grounds, there is a large landscaped, kidney-shaped swimming pool with a jacuzzi at one corner, a kids paddling pool, water slide, and a (timed) waterfall that offers an excellent hydro-massage. Numerous deck-chairs and seats are provided nearby.
The club house, located next to the pool, has its own lobby, gym, changing rooms, table tennis tables, function rooms and a residents' mini library. There is also a putting green, children's playground and walking path.
Other facilities include tennis courts, BBQ pitts and a community hall, use of these facilities however require booking.
The beachfront is only a 10 minute walk away and offers access to a host of beautiful five star resorts and their facilities. If you especially enjoy being by the beach and the sea and feel like spoiling yourself, many of these resorts offer fine dining, massages and spas and are happy to accommodate day-use guests.
For the more adventurous, there are seaside water sports such as jet skies, boat rides, para-gliding, wind surfing, banana boat water sledge rides, beach volley ball, horse back riding and fishing, all available at very reasonable rates.
If you're on a gastronomic adventure, and truly there is no better place to be than Penang. Fill up at the local food stalls that offer cheap food and drinks (Long Beach and Global Bay Cafes) or at one of the numerous restaurants (The Ship, Golden Thai Seafood, Ferringhi Garden and others), a short walk away. After a long day, sit back and unwind to Live music performances at various venues in the resorts. We recommend the Lounge at Hard Rock Hotel (15 mins walk).
