About our home

A modern, secure apartment on the first floor of a small, low rise resort style complex, which contains a 25 meter swimming pool, poolside gazebos, BBQ area. Also a gym, hairdresser, massage spa, restaurant and basement parking. The two bedrooms each have their own bathroom and the whole space is fully equipped for an easy and pleasant lifestyle. The main bedroom has a queen bed and opens onto the balcony. The second bedroom has a single daybed which opens into a full sized double. Satellite TV provides English speaking programmes and all the sport channels, and the Internet connection is good. There is a convenience store across the road. Many of the apartments are second homes, which means it never feels busy. My apartment is in an internal corner with tropical palms and trees shading both outdoor spaces, which makes it very private. The kitchen/living area has large sliding glass doors either end which means it is always breezy, an added bonus, so I rarely need to use the air conditioning.

More about us

  1. I am a retired hotelier, life coach and citizen of The World. I have lived for large chunks of my life in my native NZ, the UK, NZ again and now 11 years in Langkawi. After eight years fulfilling the dream of building a typical wooden Malay house and creating a large tropical garden, I have downsized and love life in my gorgeous apartment. Now I typically spend 6 months here and am indulging my urge to travel with the freedom that a 'lock up and go' dwelling allows.
    I have also put a lot of energy into a local charity which I created with some friends several years ago, and which is now a thriving NGO helping underprivileged families on the island. I have daughters and grandchildren in various parts of the world, so living in 'the middle' is a perfect place to be based.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

The Laguna Apartments are situated on the western side of Langkawi overlooking The Andaman Sea, Padang Matsirat town is nearby where there is a fresh fish and vegetable market, chemist, doctors and a supermarket which caters to the needs of the 'western diet'. Padi fields, coconut palms, rainforest, long white sand beaches and cafés serving delicious local food abound. Buffalo and cattle wander freely, the people are warm and friendly and English is widely spoken. The airport is just five minutes drive (not under the flight path) and because Langkawi is a tourist island, international cuisine of a high standard is readily available.
There is plenty to do - go island hopping or enjoy a sunset cruise amongst some of the 99 Islands which make up Langkawi. There are 3 golf courses, tennis courts, yoga and Pilates classes, Zumba and more. Cycling around the local kampungs (villages) is a delightful way to spend a morning. The northern part of Langkawi is a UNESCO Geopark and a pleasant day out is to take a boat trip along the rivers lined with mangroves, amongst ancient karst mountains. Langkawi lies off the north western coast of peninsula Malaysia and is very near to the Thailand border. Ferries ply between Langkawi and the mainland hourly during the day.
