Alles bestens, sehr freundlich un bemüht
We were 3 girls who stayed with Os family for a couple of days. We had a brilliant experience with them. Such a lovely and warm-hearted family. They did everything and more to make us feel comfortable. The cooking class was fantastic and the food delicious. They even helped us to find a car to rent for few days which was almost impossible ad we wanted to leave the car in a different city. If you are looking for a relax l
I enjoyed 4 nights in Mallaca with this host. He and his wife are very friendly and I enjoyed a lot of discussion. I also had my breakfast and evening meal in this home and she is an excellent cook especially as I am vegetarian. I also availed myself of the son driving me to where I needed to go and his knowldge of the area. This host is excellent value and really cares about giving good service. I shall stay again if I visit Mallaca. The host is happy to give an extra price for meals and car service but this is not expensive and well worth while.
My 3-day stay in Melaka with Os and his family was a wonderful cultural experience. The room is clean, nice, comfortable with ensuite bathroom and air conditioning, the perfect combination for comfortable nights on holiday.
Os and Hassa (his wife) are very accommodating, providing you with the information you need. They are very knowledgeable about their culture and others, it was a real pleasure to share family breakfasts and dinners with them. Hassa's cooking lessons are a MUST otherwise we miss out on a beautiful cultural exchange in Malaysia. The Arabian food is a delice! :) Ahmed, their son was my driver and he is a good, welcoming and a safe driver who is always happy to take you around and chat with you about Malaysia and Melaka. I had the opportunity to meet their beautiful daughters who are very curious about other cultures and we shared interesting conversations. I will do my best to go back to Melaka and spend more time with Os and his family.
We stayed 3 days with os and his familly and it was just wonderful days !! Everythings was perfect thanks you for your hospitality for sharing with us your Life your culture thanks you to your wife Who is amazing chief!!!! Amazing food !!! Thanks you for your perfect organisation we find Time to visit all the beautiful place we must see in melacca ! We learn so much with you and all the familly!!!
We Côme back two Times in one month in os house because we miss them sooo much haha!!! It was just wonderful expérience and meet !
We Will miss you and we Will defenetly Côme back to see u in sha Allah!
We had a wonderful stay at this family. They were very friendly and warm and helped us where posible. We feeled like home. The food was excellent!
I arranged to be picked up from the bus station and even dropped off at the airport when leaving.
The room had two single beds, with a shared bathroom. The family's son was in the adjoining room. It wasn't a problem because there were locks on the outside and inside of the bathroom. The air conditionner was new and very quiet
Arrangements can be made to go into the old town of Melaka when you want, driven by a member of the family. This homestay is 8km from the center of town.
The biggest drawing point that this homestay has, is Hawa's cooking. It's like having retaurant quality meals, three times a day! There was always a choice of three dishes. I especially enjoyed the vegetables.
The family is very kind and friendly. I highly recommend this homestay. :)
Os Egeh and his family (Hasinah and Amartharis) are a wonderful family and hosts. They provided accommodation, transport and best of all, fantastic food and hospitality. I would thoroughly recommend them! It was great to meet you all.
