What we say: 4 stars

This rustic Malay homestay is located just a 10-minute walk from the Dutch Square area. You'll stay in the family home, a wooden building that just celebrated its 100th birthday, amid a garden with cats, rabbits and roosters. Considering the age of the house do expect some creaks, leaks and mosquitoes, but the rooms are clean and the showers are hot. The personal touch is what makes it a memorable stay and you couldn't ask for nicer people. Rates include WiFi and a home-cooked breakfast. The way to Apa Kaba is clearly signposted from the road near the high school.
