Stayed in this apartment for 2 nights but could have easily spent the week here. The first thing you see when you get into the apartment is the gorgeous view of the marina from the large balcony, perfect for relaxing and watching the world go by and quiet and peaceful away from the main town. It's situated right above the Straits Quay shopping mall area so easy access to lovely cafés, shops and restaurants but also only a 10-15 minute drive to the main hustle and bustle of Georgetown where all the legendary street food is.
Tesco is 10mins down the road and there is also a complimentary snack basket and cooking oil and spices if you want to prepare your own meals. Place was clean and very comfy and loved the decor. The hosts being local penangites were super friendly and helpful in terms of the must do/eat things in Penang! It's also right next to a lovely pool that the time we went no one else was there so felt like we had it all to otherselves.

We stayed here for 2 weeks. Me and my wife. We really enjoyed ourselves. We honestly did not expect it to be so impressive. The pictures don't do the place justice, really...
The team managing the place which they call "rest" are very helpful. From the moment we arrived, they were very hospitable. They helped us with a long list of what to do, where to eat and so much more! Their advises kept our time in Penang feel like it's way too short!
"Rest" has one bedroom and 2 bathroom. The ensuite bathroom is huge! It has double sink, a to die for bath tub with a tv attached and a sizable shower! The room is very cosy and we wake up to the best view ever! The sunrise here is just amazing. It makes us want to jump out of bed and go for a long walk by the marina.
The kitchen is also very nice & well equipped. Because we stayed for 2 weeks, some days we just stayed in and made ourselves meals. Tesco is just a 10 minute walk away from where we are. "Rest" have all the spices and herbs ready for us to cook. They even have extra virgin olive oil ready for us! This is very handy because otherwise we have to buy a big bottle...
What we really love is our balcony... the view is just superb. We spend most of our evenings at the balcony with a bottle of wine enjoying the sun setting.
Another bonus to this apartment is that, it is located above a lifestyle mall, Straits Quay and there are many quirky and fun boutique outlets as well as many cafes & restaurants! We wanted to try Penang's street food most of the time but we did have time to have a few of our meals there. We love the bread shop just below us. And my wife loves the Yoghurt shop that sells really nice yoghurt ice cream.
"Rest" at straits quay definitely made our holiday a memorable one. It made us feel like we had our home in Penang and leaving was not easy! We cannot wait to be back!
Thank you to all of you at "rest" for making our trip such a memorable one!
