About the Homestay
My house is a double-storey semi-D house. We have 2 empty rooms, so we decided to use them as homestay purpose.
This is a place with lots of fresh air as it is just by the great Penang Hill and close to nature. You will be staying with the host of 4 family members who are very friendly. You will find out soon!
Guests will have access to the entire property except host's private room. Hot water shower is available all day. Free WIFI, living room with 42" TV, kitchen with stove, oven and fridge and washing machine (all of them are available for use). Clean towel will be provided and hair dryer is available.
Parking lot is available if you drive your own vehicle. Feel free to walk around our small garden.
You will easily get us during your stay if you need any help. Please feel free to find us if you need any travel information. We are just staying at first floor of the house. We can speak English, Mandarin, Malay and Hokkien (Penang dialect). Hence no worry for communication problem. We can also bring you around places of interest in Penang if you wish (further discussion).

About the Area
I love my neighborhood because it is near to Penang Hill. If you like hiking, this is the place. If you like nature, this is the place. If you like temple (Kek Lok Si Temple), this is the place. If you like Penang Street Food, this is the place. Penang famous Curry Mee and Laksa is just located at Ayer Itam Market. I grew up in this small town since 20+ years ago. I love this small town very much, Ayer Itam.
Public transportation is convenient here. Penang Hill bus station is just within 3 minutes walk. Public bus is available with an interval of every 30 minutes. The bus will bring you to Ayer Itam Old Market and Kek Lok Si Temple just in 5 minutes ride. You can go to Georgetown by bus with only RM2 and 35-45mins ride. In addition, taxi service is also available. You can use Grab as well.
If you need to rent a car for your trip in Penang, just let me know and i can arrange it for you.
Let me know if you need me to pick you guys up at the airport (with a small fee).

I had a really great stay at Jern and Kai Homestay in Penang. The room was perfect but most important the hosts were so kind. I felt like home. They gave me a lot of information about what not be missed in Penang. Jern and Kai were always ready to help. I will never forget their hospitality. Thank you so much!
