  • Description


    Hi, I'm Michelle. I'm living in Malacca with my husband, Ryan, and 2 kids (4 year old and 8 year old). My husband Ryan currently run a reggae bar in Malacca town. Whereas, I taking care 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 taking care and play with my kids also teaching them cultural, languagues and concept to study smart.

    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)
