“A real taste of Malaysia”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2014

This is possibly the best trip we have ever had in Malaysia. The kids loved the beach, my mom was smitten with the garden and we were all enjoyed the hosts wonderful company + cooking:) Oya and Ena were right when they wrote that they hoped their guests leave as friends... Looking forward to go back real soon.

“Fantastic and would have loved to stay longer.”

An excellent place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Summerland Retreat accommodation caters for all your needs and our two teenage girls, didn't have a single complaint. Oya and Ena are first class hosts, always ready and willing to spend time with you in conversation. The food prepared by the ladies is exceptional and showcases the best of Malaysian cooking. Nothing was too much trouble for them (adjusting recipes to suit tastes). The beach, 60 steps away, was deserted and a perfect location to watch the sun rise. Oya and Ena provide advice on the local eateries and places to visit, which aren't on the general tourist maps. In fact we didn't see any tourists, a true taste of Malay life. We will definitely be back.

Response from the owner Thank you for being exquisite guests..(now our friends..) Also for leaving behind a spotless room.! We can't wait to see all of you again!

“Best decision ever made to retreat to Summerland...”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2013

From the time we arrived at KT airport and were instantly recognised by our hosts Oya & Ena - even they had not known what we looked like - we knew that we were going to enjoy this stay. There is a magic about this place, obviously just created by both Oya and Ena, that made it one of our best holidays to date. We felt thoroughly 'at home', the accommodation was great - although we don't really have anyone at our home to look after us like they did!!! The fresh food that was prepared for us daily was just perfect, the milk shakes too, even if I say so! We were so generously surprised with all the local delicacies we enquired about! I dream of the 'roti canai' and all the wonderful food prepared to perfection for us! Oya and Ena patiently chauffeured us to various places of interest, each with a unique Malaysian experience! Even the boat trip to The Perhentian Islands which I was dreading as I am prone to motion sickness, turned out to be bliss! We always chatted about almost everything and anything and had a laugh! I have to admit that even just relaxing on the balcony, looking around aimlessly or soaking in the peaceful view was just enough for me. I can still hear all the birds, animals and the local sounds haunting me back!!! Finding the beautiful secluded sandy beach just a stone throw away was just perfect too. What more can I say, except that it was exactly as advertised, if anything, even better! Additionally, Michele and Paul who occupied the adjoining suite were just lovely! You could make this stay as hectic or as peaceful as you wanted, Oya and Ena always accommodating you for sure. Oya & Ena, our friends now, a heartfelt 'thank you' for sharing a part of your wonderful lives, your peace and your haven in Summerland with us! Hope to be back one day soon - Insha allah! Mxx

Response from the owner Dearest Marian..the pleasure was indeed ours! How wonderful to have met you & Leo and I will always remember the laughter we shared! The 'magic' you mentioned also comes from the positive karma our guests bring when they visit us. We look forward to sharing more good times with you. All the best! x.

“Peace and tranquillity by a warm sea”

Reviewed 5 Apr 2013

We have just spent a wonderful week in Kuala Terrangganu. Oya and Ena are perfect hosts and they made us very welcome, cooking the most delicious meals, exactly to our taste. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, with a veranda looking out onto a huge garden and beyond that the golden beach and the sea. It was the highlight of the last week of our seven week holiday to just walk to the beach every day for a swim in the warm sea. We were taken to local markets and restaurants and also we had an exciting trip by boat to the beautiful Perhentian Islands. Beats the Caribbean any day. Thank you, Oya and Ena, our new friends, for everything and we sincerely hope to return again.

Response from the owner It was a joy to spend such a wonderful time with you & Paul plus both Marian & Leo. We feel blessed to attract 'the right kind' of people to Summerland. You were all very considerate & kind and we enjoyed your company immensely! Thank you for the good times and we look forward to another adventure in the near future perhaps? Much love, O & E.

“The perfect place for relaxing”

There was only one thing what was going wrong, we booked only for 4 days this beautiful, peaceful place. At the first moment we feels the familiar atmosphere. Ena and Oya are warm and genial hosts. To stay there is the best for relaxing, we missed nothing, the rooms are in very good conditions, across the small road there is a beautiful clean beach. The meals were the highlight of the day, cooked with love from Ena and Oya. I am sure during our next holiday in Malaysia we will stay there again. Thank you very much again Ena and Oya for this amazing days.

“Wonderful stay in a beautiful place with reliable and helpfull h”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2012

It was already from the beginning clear that our hosts Oya and Ena were very nice people. During our stay we received a lot of help planning our holiday, they were quiet involved and offered much useful information. The accommodation is very clean, it is really as what you see on the pictures. It is even better. It has airconditioning, TV, Minibar (filled with enough bottles of water). The environment is very calm, beautiful natural scenery, the beach is nearby just walking distance. It is the best place to relax without any noise of traffic, people. The beach stretches for kilometers and nobody is around, it is just you and the sea. Oya and Ena rent also their car with navigation if you want to visit the city, laptop and Internet is available. The meals are delightfull, breakfast/lunch/diner are really moments of pleasure. The juices of Oya make the picture complete. Bidong Island is just on a 30 min. distance and the perfect location to enjoy a bounty island all alone. It is really as what is mentioned on their facebook page, you come as guests but leave as friends. Looking forward to visit Malaysia and our friends Oya and Ena again, soon. Insallah. Kind regards, Buket and Hasan Turkish friends from the Netherlands.

Response from the owner Thank you my dear friends..:) You now have a special place in our hearts..

“A perfect stay”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2012

We stayed one week at Summerland Retreat in July, and loved the place for lots of reasons. The rooms: The rooms are spacious, clean, cozy and comfortably - it was like walking in to an expensive hotelroom, but set in the beautiful surroundings of Summerland and with the privacy of a vacation rental - just perfect. Location: Summerland is right across the street to a wonderful beach, with clear, warm water. We went swimming several times a day, and never meet anybody else at the beach. Just a long golden beach with beautiful water for us to enjoy. There is a lot to see in the vicinity - we visited stunning waterfalls, Tasik Kenyir, lokal markeds and Kuala Terengganu city. We also went on the most amazing snorkling trip to Bidang Island. It was fully as stunning as the snokning we did at Perhentian Islands. We didn't have time, but if we had, we would also have gone on a daytrip snorkling at Redang. We rented a car from Oya and Ena for a very reasonable price, and went exploring the region; nice roads and very nice people wherever you go. However the road signing is sparse. Food: Ena cooked for us every day with great variation and managed to excite us every day with dishes so tasty, we still dream of them. On arrival we were asked about our preferences regarding food, and when Ena and Oya learned that our youngest prefer western food, they cooked specially for them each night. The hosts: Oya and Ena are truly the most charming, friendly and fun people you can imagine - such good company. We all grew very fond of them during our short stay, and will certainly be back if we ever get the chance to visit Malaysia again.

“This is the most peaceful place in Malaysia”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2012

We could not have found a better place in the East coast. It is fantastic - quiet, peaceful and very, very stress-free. The isolated beach is clean and the water inviting. It is paradise indeed! Oya and Ena, two very independent Malay women, are fabulous hosts - they're very perceptive, have a great sense of humour, and are eager to please. They're also very honest and great cooks. I couldn't believe that John, who has very high standards when it comes to food (i.e. a fussy eater), enjoyed all his meals there. I'm a vegetarian and Ena made a fantastic 'asam pedas' for me. We had everything we would ever need. Even the cats there were entertaining! This place is suitable for those who enjoy a peaceful and quiet place. What we liked least: It was too short a stay (only 5 days). We miss the weather there, the beach, the sea, shell-collecting, the cats, the two lovely ladies, and the food!

Response from the owner Thank you my dear friends. We miss you too and look forward to the next time!

“the sun the sand and the sea with fantastic food & excellent com”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2012

Rooms are tastefully furnished, impeccably clean and provides serene overview of the surrounding nature. Nothing can beat home cooked food that's worth every penny spent. Ena is a fantastic cook with ready laughter and will astound you with her culinary skills both local and western. Oya is the ever gracious host, always a sweet gentle smile on her. Once lodged here, we hardly wanted to venture out except to scamper 3 mins into the serene blue waves. Already miss the place and especially the charming ladies. Cant wait to come back and holiday here again. We've been to several holiday lodgings in past 5 years of terengganu holidays and this place run by Oya and Ena beats them all.

Response from the owner I don't believe I could get a better review than this. We have been blessed by your presence. You showered us with gifts,took us out for a grand dinner and left us a big tip! 5 stars for being the perfect happy family! Hope to see you again real soon. :)
