About our home

1) Rental is only available for minimum 1 month between 17 July and 30 September. Electricity MUST be paid for by the guest.
2) Points exchange only available between 17 July and 30 September 2018 (not available in 2019). Electricity MUST be paid for by the guest
3) Exchange is only for Cyprus (north or south) for a minimum of 1 month to a maximum of 2 months
If you want exchange with Malaysia in 2018 (this year) you must give us the same amount of time between 1 May and 30 June 2019 (next year) Electricity MUST be paid for by the guest. We will do the same in your home.

Our modestly furnished penthouse apartment is in a 15 storey complex. It was built in 1994 and although not modern, it is more than offset by its fabulous central location (between Gurney Plaza and Georgetown, close to Pulua Tikus Market); its incredible balconies (unusual for Asia) and fabulous breezes from a 270 degree view and balconies, which make is very liveable.

We are close to so many restaurants, cafes, bars, hawker stalls and markets, it is difficult to choose where to eat every night within walking distance of home.


More about us

  1. Hi we are Denise and Terry. We have had many exchanges around the world and love travelling. We are clean, neat and tidy people who do not smoke.

    We offer an NON SIMULTANEOUS EXCHANGE ONLY with Cyprus. Our home is available from mid July to end of September 2018. We will want to stay at your home in May and June 2019 only.

    (We can do house/pet sits if exchanges are not what you are seeking. We are registered with references for this option)

    High speed internet and wifi is a must. Sorry but we do not exchange without access to the internet in the home.

    We are in our early 60s and generally travel alone. Although we often travel with another couple of our age. We might meet up with friends while we are overseas whom we would like to welcome for the occasional overnight or weekend stay. We extend the same arrangement to you should you wish to have friends or family join you.

    We are clean and tidy, and we are non smokers. We expect that our home exchange friends are of the same mind.

    We love to meet new people and build friendships through home exchange.

    We respond to all emails - very quickly, so please write and tell us of your ideas.

  2. We are only seeking Cyprus (either south or north) but it is only for a long exchange of 1-2 months.
    If you can come in August/September 2018, we will need to come in May/June 2019. Not flexible except for a couple of days changeover.

  3. Seeking 1-2 weeks in New York (before 4 September 2019 - NEXT year) before our cruise. You will need to come to Penang in August/September 2018 (THIS year)

Where is it?


Perfect location between modern Gurney Plaza (1.5km) Gurney Paragon (1km) and colonial fascinating Georgetown (2.5km). Close by (600m) is Pulau Tikus market for all your fresh fruit, vegetables; meat and fish.
In between these places there is a myriad of hawkers stalls, cafes, restaurants ( all cuisines and styles), bars and coffee lounges all within walking distance of home.
Kampung Syed as shown on the map is a small, but largely residential "suburb" with low rise houses thus ensuring that our penthouse is not over looked and that our views and all important breezes are not blocked.
