“Very considerate and kind”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I and my friend stayed with their family for 1 night. They gave us delicious food and let us borrow 2 bicycles to go around Melaka. We regret that we missed the tour which Mr Os organized so well for us...but anyway we will absolutely come back there one day and stay longer.

“Good Experience”
Reviewed 10 March 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I really enjoyed the home cooking workshop. Unfortuantely I was alone, so the price for 1 person seemed a lot, i was also leaving the next day so I could not take a lot of food with me. The price of the workshop, in my opinion suits if you are a group or if you are staying for a few days as you can get to eat that food during the week. Despite this, my experience with Os, his wife and son was excellent and I really enjoyed being with them. Os was very fast in senidng me the recipies.

In terms of staying you can stay with Os family but that means you have to take two buses into the city, or you can stay in their house near the bus station, this one is more convenient but you miss out on living with the family. Os picked me up at the arranged time and showed me the area, he was there for anythign that was needed.

“5 star homestay, highly recommended!!”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in November 2015

This is my third time stayed with os family, I was very happy to bring my mother along with me for this trip.

My mother and I had good times with Os family as they were too happy to see me again. Good location in the center, you can walk to Melacca central bus station. The room is big and clean and very good home made Malay-Arabian food to enjoy! 5 star home stay in Melacca!

“Great cultural exchange and food with friendly family”
Reviewed 3 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My short trip to Melaka was the highlight of my trip to Malaysia. It was an ideal opportunity to stay in a typical Malaysian home, learn to cook (and eat!) Malay/Arab food and to just spend time with a very warm and welcoming Malaysian family.

Started the day with a typical Malaysian breakfast, delicous, served by Os. The family helped me with local information and its fascinating listening to Os talk about Malaysian life.

The house is located near the river a few minutes from the main coach station and amenities are close by. Os introduced me to a very nice restaurant frequented by locals, its walking distance.

The cooking course was well run and very engaging. And afterwards Os and his family served us the delicious 7 course meal, ate with us and gave us food to take away. And finally his son was happy to drop guests off at the coach station.
