About our home

Beach Haven is sea side self-catering house on the island of Langkawi, Malaysia. It will blow you away with it's amazing views looking across the Andaman Sea to the Thai island of Taratao. You have direct access to one of the top 2 beaches on the island. The 2 bedroom house has everything you need for a great vacation. Just 40 metres from the front door and you are on the beach. Beach Haven, shaded by trees and not overlooked, is the only rental unit in a private 2 acre garden. There is a main house that can't be seen from your house. The main house has a small pool that you can use. Beach Haven is a fully modern house and every room has sliding glass doors that open to the amazing views. It's been built using traditional Malay elements such as coloured glass but is insulated and makes full use of the sea breezes for keeping cool. There is no air conditioning but every room and the terraces have fans for those moments when the sea breezes take a break. The master bedroom is a completely separate space while the second sleeping area has a daybed that can be either a double or a single bed. There's a roll down blind to separate the space at night. Each bedroom has a private deck. The kitchen has a breakfast bar, microwave, induction plate, oven and full sized refrigerator.

We love living in the kampung on the edge of a village. It''s a quiet space but there are good restaurants, a fabulous beach and the Friday night market is not to be missed! Nearby is a fishing village and an agricultural area with a lotus filled canal. Great bike riding on the doorstep and yet we are only 20-25 minutes from eveything on the island.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

We have two amazing beaches on our doorstep, three great restaurants plus many small cafes, and yet you are away from the main tourist area among the birds and the life of a small village. There are enough small markets for fresh fruit, vegetables and fish and even prepared food that you don't have to go far if you are looking for a chilled out lazy vacation. Still you're within 30 minutes of anywhere on the island and we can recommend some great places to go for food, activities, spas etc.
