Sunset Island Apartment
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Our apartment is the ideal base to explore Langkawi, or simply to relax and enjoy the wonderful climate, scenery, food and culture of the island. Compared to similar standard hotel accommodation on the island, our rental rates are very reasonable, and we will be happy to help you help you make the most of your time on Langkawi.
Containing all the modern amenities you would expect in a holiday apartment, all towels, bedding and final cleaning are also included in the rental charge. All rooms have fans as well as remote control air conditioning. There is a Panasonic flat screen TV, Wifi, washing machine, fridge/freezer and sound system that will plug into your MP3 player. There is also a selection of DVD's, games and books that you are welcome to use. However, a few drinks on the balcony is usually a better way to round off the day !
The main bedroom has an Emperor sized bed, with en suite shower room/lavatory. The second bedroom has two single beds, with adjoining bathroom and shower facilities. There is a fully kitted out kitchen, including a gas hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, and all the utensils needed to cook for four people. The living area has a leather reclining sofa and chair, whilst the dining area has a table and seating for six people. Please note this is strictly a non-smoking apartment - smoking is allowed on the balcony however.
The apartment is located on the first floor, with a balcony overlooking the beautiful swimming pool, which is probably the best on the island for swimmers at 35m long, and with a depth ranging from 92cm to 153cm. The adjoining childrens' pool is great for kids being only 58cm deep. The apartment also comes with a travel cot.
Overall Langkawi makes an excellent holiday if you like nature, beaches, great food, exploring, swimming and or just taking things easy. Eating, drinking and transport are not expensive, and crime is negligible. Its probably not so good though if you are looking for night clubbing or mega shopping, and probably Penang or Thailand would be a better place to visit if you are looking for these activities.
Langkawi has a growing ex-pat community as Malaysia is becoming a popular retirement destination. If you are thinking of retiring there, then our apartment offers you an ideal way of dipping your toe in the water, and seeing if island life is for you. Alternatively, its a great place for couples and families who want to enjoy time together.
Langkawi is a nature lovers paradise. Being assigned 'World Geopark' status by Unesco in 2007, the island provides the opportunity to experience natural wildlife in the raw. From acres of rain forest, to miles of unspoilt (and uncrowded) beaches, the island really is fascinating to explore, and readily accessible. As the complex is surrounded by forest, animals such as macaque monkeys, hornbills and dusky leaf monkeys pay regular visits, and evening brings the gentle buzz of night creatures.
Car hire is recommended in order to see the main attractions of the island, and also to allow you to meet the wonderful inhabitants of the island who are welcoming and friendly to tourists. The road system is well maintained, car hire and taxi's are cheap, and petrol is a fraction of the price than in Western Europe (1.90 RM/litre). There really is no excuse to not getting out and about.
The island enjoys duty free status, and whilst this makes alcohol relatively cheap, thankfully there is no excessive behaviour on the island or within the complex.
Minimum rental period is four weeks - but please contact us with your required dates, as there is occaisionally flexibility in this.

The Langkawi Island region
Within Langkawi there are loads of places to visit, and things to do - here are a few suggestions:
1) Tour the island - hire a car or a scooter and just drive round the island.
2) Cable Car - its a long way up with an aerial walkway once you get there. Stunning views. Do not miss - unless you hate heights !
3) Snorkelling or diving - there are several accredited diving operators who offer day trips.
4) Kuah Jetty / Legenda Square/Eagle Park - all situated next to each other. Eagle Park is the site of the huge 12m high white eagle which is the emblem of Langkawi. Lagenda Park is a walking history book of the islands myths and legends. Kuah Jetty provides boat links to Thailand and Malaysia, as well as offering some comfort for shopaholics.
5) Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls - a steep (really steep!) climb to these waterfalls - but a beautiful scene once you get there.
6) Gunung Raya - the islands highest mountain - you can drive to the top and get a lift to the top of a viewing tower where the panorama is stunning. One for clear days only.
7) Golf courses - there are 3 great courses on the island.
8) Snake Sanctuary - a fascinating insight into the world of snakes.
9) Crocodile Farm - as the name suggests - but make sure you see the daily shows - you will then understand the meaning the meaning of the word 'bravery' ( or 'madness' perhaps?)
10) Sunsets - watching the stunning sunsets from the mid west of the island is memorable - even the locals bring their families to the coast to watch the sunsets.
11) Night markets - there is one every night of the week - Wednesday and Saturday in Kuah. Lots of colour, food and smells of cooking.
12) Mangrove Tour - another one you should not miss - covers most of the natural highlights of Langkawi.
13) Underwater World - A pretty good aquarium, complete with penguins in authentic snow setting.
Kuah is pretty much everything you would expect of a large town with several banks, many shops, and home to most of the few ATMs on the island. It has a huge variety of different places to eat, covering most of the ethnic Asian types. It also has several large duty free stores, selling liquor, tobacco and chocolate at duty free prices.
The climate provides guaranteed warmth all year round, with the rainy season providing a few hours rain a day before succumbing to the sunshine again. Temperatures are generally between 28C to 33C during the day. The islanders are very friendly, and as tourism is well developed on the island, they are used to being asked for help with directions!
Within easy walking distance of the apartment there are places to eat, shops and a kids play park. There is also a beach for sunbathing only.
