homestay

I am a frequent traveller for both business and leisure travel. I fancy the idea of staying in homestay, due to the more affordable price, larger activity space for bigger crowd and able to cook as well as able to be exempted from the heritage tax fee in certain states. I believe you guys agree with me too! Well, whenever I choose a homestay, I do have some expectations towards the homestay. Let me list a few and see whether there are in your list below:

Cleanliness of the homestay

For me, the accommodation contributes quite large portion of my happiness while travelling. Imagine entering a house full of spiderwebs on the walls and find out the bedrooms and bathrooms full of hairs, scums and dust, your happy travel mood will immediately vanish! Imagine again when you finally want to take a hot water bath after whole day travelling and you realize the water in the shower room is like Teh Tarik!

List of amenities that
can be used

Before I book a homestay, I will usually go through the amenity list that the homestay owners offer. The basic amenities I usually look for are air conditioning, fan, free parking and Wifi connection. Well, if I am travelling with families, my requirement increases, I am looking for kettle, cooking utensils, towels and iron. Thus, the more amenities the home owner provides, the higher price I am willing to pay! I do not mind paying slightly higher price if the homestay has an outdoor swimming pool where I can have pool party!

Friendly and responsible homestay owner

 

Throughout my experience staying in homestay, most of the time were enjoyable! Only this special incident haunted me. I remembered vividly that I had a trip with 5 university buddies to a fishing village, we booked this homestay due to the good online review and feedback. We gave a heads-up to the homestay owner 2 hours before we arrived the homestay. It turned out that we have waited for the homestay owner for another 1 hour to get the key. While checking the rooms, we realized basic stuff was not provided such as toilet tissues, bed sheets and dustbins. The homestay owner treated us badly when we complained to him on this basic stuff. 

Well, I also met some very friendly and responsible owners where they would call us 1 day before our trip to enquire our special requirements, send us reminder on our trip and check-in time, provide us a complete guide to hunt for good food and places to visit, also provide us some mineral waters, extra power plugs as well as emergency contacts and nearby clinics. I found the information of emergency contact and nearby clinics so helpful when I fell so sick due to food poisoning.

Safety and privacy of the homestay

Safety and privacy of the homestay

For me, the safety and privacy of the homestay are very important. Imagine that you have a night party at the homestay and some intruders broke into the house. I believe you will be haunted forever! Imagine another scenario where you are happily chitchatting with your buddies at night, then the home owners come and disturb the enjoyable moments.  Thus, I normally make sure the doors and gates are locked before I go to bed with my travel buddies, notify my close friends, relatives and friends the homestay location. Touchwood, so everything will be fine!

The neighbourhood and the accessibility to public transport

Well, I also prefer to book homestay nearby to tourist attractions such as homestay nearby to Jonker Street, Melaka where I can just have 5 to 10 minutes walking to the tourist attraction. As a foodie, I always find places which have great accessibilities to public transport where I can leverage on the LRTs and MRTs to hunt for food and beverages! I love homestay which is nearby the convenience stores or hypermarket where I can just grab snacks, fruit and vegetable when I can do some cooking with my families!
