We had a comfortable stay at the Elephant Nest and Lily is an awesome host. The location is very close to the Heritage part of town, and the house is a 5 minutes walk away from many eateries. We had a power cut problem on our first day, but the problem was resolved quickly. Will definitely stay here again when we come back to Penang.

It is not often you are left blown away by the extra mile people go! Lily left us blown away. Elephants nest is simple yet comfortable and was just perfect for our family. Lily went the extra mile, meeting us there, having yoghurts for my Daughter, juice bread and more - she also Organised bikes to be delivered and picked up - so good! Highly recommend! We will be back

Lily and Farina were wonderful hosts. Lily was very keen to ensure we were happy and had everything we needed. The house was really great - simple but comfortable, and a lovely retreat after a long day in the heat! We were there with three young children. On occasion, we walked back from the Love Lane area. When the kids had had enough, we were easily able to get an Uber. We loved our stay and would happily recommend!

The house is just perfect for a family to stay, centrally located. 10 to 15 mins cab ride to pretty much all the tourist sites & 10 mins walk-able distance to all popular eateries in town. The house it self has a calm & positive aura, absolutely loved our time.

We just came back from a fantastic weekend in Penang and Lily's place was the perfect base. It's centrally located - no more than a 5 minute scenic walk from most of the attractions in the old town - but also away from the bustle and noise of the busiest streets, a good option if you're travelling with your family or like some quiet time. Lily was a fantastic host and her place was simply but beautifully decorated, in keeping with the minimalist beauty of Georgetown itself. We especially loved having our own little kitchenette that we could use to cook breakfast and we actually ended up spending much more time in the Nest than we thought we would! Overall, a great place to stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Georgetown.

This is certainly a lovely house for family vacation - clean, very spacious, newly renovated and the whole house is fully air-conditioned. Even though not right at the Core Heritage Zone or the Buffer Zone, but the location is still very central and convenient to roam around George Town. It's located at quiet but safe neighbourhood, perfect if you have light-sleeper at your company. The house have washing machine, dryer, fridge, electric kettle and a very well-equipped kitchen. We are super delighted on this! TV is provided but bring your own DVD or cast-device for entertainment if you need one. Water pressure and temperature control at the shower is not great but we are fine with it. Soap & towel is provided, the rest bring your own. Lily provided great support during our stay such as bringing in extra blanket for us since we have the 5th guest. Definitely will consider this place again when we come back to Penang!
