  • Description


    Hi, I'm Ryan. I'm living in Malacca with my wife and 2 kids. I currently run a reggae bar in Malacca town. I also run a guesthouse in Malacca town, which is the one you'll be staying in. With my reggae bar, 2 kids and some personal stuff, it's best that if I can find someone who is friendly and with sense of responsibility to help me manage and take care of my guesthouse. Nothing complicated or physically devouring, just simple tasks.

    My guesthouse is a terrace house, located in a quiet housing area with stores and restaurants (some of the famous ones are just right around here) within 1 to 5 minutes walking distance, so - feel free to make yourself at home here! Malacca is a cycling-friendly town. You are free to use one of the bikes in the guesthouse to ride around Malacca and explore. You are also welcome to grab a couple of beers and have a good time with people in my reggae bar at night! If I have time, I'll bring and show you around what's best and fun in Malacca - enjoying it in the authentically local way!

    "Selamat datang!" (Welcome in Bahasa Melayu)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You have this opportunity to get to know the locals around here and understand more about Malaysia and South East Asia culture. You can know more about Malacca town's history, as this is where Malaya/Malaysia "started". You can also use this opportunity to learn some Bahasa Melayu or Chinese if you're interested. Malacca town is also a place full with travelers around the world, this is a good chance for you to know friends around the world! We're only less than 10 minutes walk away from the heart of Malacca town, where all the famous spots such as Red Square, Jonker street, riverwalk, St. Francis Xavier church, St. Paul church, Maritime museum, etc etc. You are basically living in a place with holiday+historical+reggae vibes!
