This was a great exchange, that gave us the opportunity to travel in Malaysia for two weeks, followed by a few days in Singapore. We stayed four nights in Kevin's condo in Kuala Lumpur, very well situated and with all the comfort we needed. We were welcomed by Yap, the housekeeper, who took us out for a very typical lunch. We could use Kevin's car to travel to the house in Taiping, where we were welcomed by Mrs Poh, who provided us with some food and fruits from the garden. Dragon Place is a very special house, with garden and Taiping is very well situated for excursions to Penang and Cameron Highlands. Back in KL, we met Kevin and had diner together, a very nice evening. Thank you very much for this great opportunity and always welcome in our home in Belgium.
We enjoyed a wonderful two weeks in Malaysia in the homes of Kevin and Ting. Kevin ensured that all the support we might require was provided, and this made us feel very secure and content while staying in Malaysia for the first time. Our every need was attended to! The Studio in Verve Suites was very well located, with superb views of Kuala Lumpur. The rooftop pools provided a touch of true luxury, and from there it was beautiful to watch the lights of KL's buildings come on at sunset. We also enjoyed the variety of cuisines offered by the restaurants and cafes on the ground floor of the complex, as well as the convenience of the grocery store and baker. Our stay in the Taiping Villa was different and equally enjoyable. Once again, our every need was catered for and Mrs Poh, the housekeeper ensured we were comfortable. This is a truly beautiful home and we felt very privileged to be able to stay there. Kevin and Ting were excellent hosts, and we are grateful that we were able to meet and spend some time together. We appreciated being able to establish a friendship with them and are looking forward to welcoming them to our home next year.
a luglio 2023 potrò ricambiare la meravigliosa esperienza vissuta nelle case di Kevin. La Malesia scoperta così si è rivelata straordinaria. La casa immersa nella vegetazione, a due passi da un bosco di mangrovie. Una casa ad Arte, nel vero senso della parola; tutto estremamente emozionante. Per non parlare della casa, che tocca le stelle, offerta nella capitale. Un angolo di pace tra le nuvole, per godere dall'alto una capitale nella foresta . Grazie Kevin, vi aspetto
Our exchange in Malaysia has been perfect. Kevin Lee's kindness, generosity and constant attention was excellent and we are sincerely grateful for all his help and for the useful information he provided. Both the Kuala Lumpur apartment and the Taiping house were beautiful, perfect, fully equipped and made our stay very pleasant. Thank you Kevin.
We loved our time (3 weeks) that we lived at Dragon Place in Taiping. The house is very special, not a standard house at all. There are so many great corners. One of our favourite places for the upper teracce from there you have a 360 degree view over the whole area. In the garden passion fruit, rambutan, guaves... were growing, our boys had the chance to catch some of the fish next to the house, there are plenty of bedrooms, a very nice kitchen as well living and dining room. We also enjoyed the luxury of having Ms. Poh around us. Despite the house and garden we also liked the area a lot - Taiping being a city of just over 200000 inhabitants, very easy to get around, no long distances eg in case you want to go to the market, get some cooked dishes, go to Lake Gardens or the rainforest behind Taiping. We really got an impression of the life there. It was easy to get in contact with the locals who were curious and enjoyed having a chat. Taiping is called the rain city of Malaysia. Quite often it builds up in the afternoon and than rains heavily for maybe an hour. All in all the climat is pretty warm and humid. You do move slower... but we didnt mind the weather, actually our kids loved it to play in the rain we also stayed 10 days in one of Kevin and Tings appartements at the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur, which was so different, hadnt planned it like that at first - but are very glad we had this experience as well in addition to all these facts we loved the contact with Kevin and Ting. Kevin picked us up from the airport, Ting had prepared some food and over the whole time of our exchange we stayed in contact with them - hope we will do in future as well :-) also enjoyed the option of meeting some of their friends and experiencing the malayian culture even more like this once we were there really had a great time!
Asians destinations are not frequent but we were able to discover Malaysia with this home swap. Kevin was a very careful host. He did everything to make our stay easy and comfortable. From Taiping's house we made many trips that allowed us to discover the many facets of his country. Thanks to Ting and Kevin for these beautiful holidays.
Very tidy condo in attractive block within ideal location and shops/restaurants on the ground floor. Mont Kiara is a pleasant up market area with a good shopping mall half a mile away or 12 minutes walk. Super helpful and welcoming Mandy who ensured we were happy with everything. Nice stay. Thanks so much!
Oh, what a Holiday! We stayed in Lee`s place in Taiping and in Kulala Lumpur. The places are very nice, the people are very nice, and we really hope we can come back soon.
We were already welcomed with great openness by the chauffeur of the family at the airport. The whole week he brought us everywhere and even waited for us. After arriving at the house we were awaited with a nice dinner. The house is in a very good and safe place in Jakarta. The whole week we got so much tasty, different and good food. Jakarta is an amazing place and we would certainly like to go back because there is so much culture and so many things to do. Thank you very much!
It has been a wonderful experience. We have traveled through Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur and Taiping) and Java (Jakarta) and in the three houses we have felt very comfortable and well cared for. And Kevin and his family are really charming. Your hospitality and generosity have allowed us to enjoy a trip that we will always remember. They helped us organize the trip and were always willing to help. We highly recommend an exchange with them.
Très bon échange, appartement vraiment agréable, nous avons bien profité de la piscine. Merci.
