This is my favourite spot when it comes to staying in Pantai Cenang, Langkawi. A total I have lived here for about 4 months I think and I do love it.
It is serene but still things are happening (like right now they mounted a ring and boxing gear for Muay Thai boxers to train. One of them won a world championship here in Langkawi in May) .
I have had access to the gear to cook so I have been able to do my own food (if I want to) but it is really cheap to eat out here so I mostly have been going out to eat.
The homestay have different prices rages and sizes of rooms. The one I have stayed in is in the middle, it has 2 spacious rooms, cooking facilities (you have to ask for that) and AC. of course toilet, hot water and AC. This one is sold for RM 80 / night but if you stay longer you can negotiate about the price. It has two queen size beds.
They hav rooms without AC and refridgerator at lower cost and they have rooms with alot of beeds and kitchen for a higher rate.
There is a pool and an area to sit and maybe barbeque that all can use. Unfortunately when there is alot of people swimming with their clothes on it gets dirty (it´s ot like they use clean clothes or shower before they enter) but that normally goes away in a couple of days.
It is also a sister hotell to Cenang Resthouse that is located at the beach. The rates here are higher and nothing that I have any knowledge on but if you are interested, please ask me and I will check.
I you are coming to Langkawi and feel like staying at the resthouse, feel free to send me and email and I will check availiability and maybe try negotiate the rate a bit.
It is about 5-10 minutes away from the beach (take right when you come down to the mainroad and first one left after that for the best part of the beach) .
