DAHONG FIVE STARS HOMESTAY 大雄高级民宿之船奇民宿 | MALACCA


Hola  If you are following my Instagram, then you should know I visited Malacca on last week. Melaka is a food paradise and it's actually quite near from KL. However, we know 1 day trip might be not enough. So we decided to stay overnight to try other delicious Malacca foods. 


Anyway, I'm invited by DaHong Homestay to give a try on their latest and biggest homestay - Five Stars Homestay (大雄高级民宿之船奇民宿). I was super excited as I never stay at any homestay before. Normally I choose hotel other than homestay because I think hotel is more preferable. Anyway, after I had the experience to stay at this unique 5 stars homestay, I changed my mind.  =)


The owner Han Song is really friendly. He share with us his experience and the mission & vision about the homestay that he developed. He hope friends and family can connect together even during travel or any other special occasion such as wedding, birthday party etc. Most of us now hotel can accommodate maximum 2 person, even the suit can accommodate max 8 person. If your travel partners are more than that figure, then you guys might force to book more hotel room. The cost and expenses might cost a lot. 

On the other hand, homestay can accommodate more people compare to hotel. And what so SPECIAL about this 5 stars homestay is It can accommodate TOTAL 46 PERSON! Yes, I'm not joking here. It's a triple storey house and consists of total 8 rooms. Continue reading to find out more. 


The owner has his own concept about this 5 stars homestay. Since he own total of 8 different homestay, some of them can only maximum not more than 25 person. Therefore, he hope develop a homestay which can accommodate as much people as he could. This homestay is not the usual interior. The theme is Ship and it even has a REAL SHIP in the living room! You can notice in the first photo and the equipment that you saw in the photo above are the one who have been use for so many years by the fisherman. Okie dokie, let the photo tell you the stories now.






Kitchen | DaHong Five Stars Homestay

Refrigerator & Washing machine included | DaHong Five Stars Homestay


Room 1 | DaHong Five Stars Homestay
[ Room 1 | 2 pax ]

Room 2 | DaHong Five Stars Homestay
Room 1 and room 2 is best suitable for those elderly who is inconvenient walk  because both of them are located with the kitchen so there's no necessary to use the stairs. Room 2 attached with washroom as well. 
[ Room 2 | 4 pax ]

First floor | DaHong Five Stars Homestay
Owner purposely set up a mahjong table there because some of the tenant might play mahjong as entertainment. Of course, you need to bring your own mahjong set. 

Room 3 | DaHong Five Stars Homestay
Room 3 consider the largest room in the house because it consists of 6 beds and able to accommodate total 11 person. It's most suitable for those teenagers or young adults who would like to chit chat until overnight.
[ Room 3 | 11 pax ]

Second Floor Balcony | DaHong Five Stars Homestay



The second floor balcony is attached with Room 3. I guess you guys can noticed the balcony also comes with LED during night time right? The owner purposely put LED under the border to make it pop! So all your friends knew where is your homestay when the lost at night.

Room 4 | DaHong Five Stars Homestay
[ Room 4 | 6 pax ]

Room 5 | DaHong Five Stars Homestay
Room 6 comes with more feminine concept because it's mainly for ladies. I'm fall in love with their wallpaper and lovely pink curtain. Attached with washroom as well. 
[ Room 5 | 6 pax ]

Third Floor | DaHong Five Stars Homestay

Sky Window | DaHong Five Stars Homestay


I love the third floor concept which allow us to chit chat and chill. The sky window is my favourite! There are some cushion for us to hug or lay so we can check out the stars in night time. Not to mentioned the LED light is another spot on factor!

Room 6 | DaHong Five Stars Homestay
As I mentioned previously, this homestay not only for tourist, it also can be for special occasion guest such as wedding. This room will be most suitable for the bride and groom! The red velvet curtain area is best to capture the wedding couple photo. As we knew, wedding couple need some privacy so third floor would be the best. Attached with washroom.
[ Room 6 | 2 pax ]

Room 7 | DaHong Five Stars Homestay
Room 7 is one of my favourite because it's not just the ordinary zodiac wallpaper, this wallpaer can be glow during night time! I guess this would be teenager or kid's favourite room. Especially zodiac lover.
[ Room 7 | 6 pax ]

Room 8 | DaHong Five Stars Homestay
Wow~ Room 8 is obviously the kid's paradise! The puffy clouds is my favourite deco in this room! Even the curtain is comes with tiffany and blue colour. Washroom is attached and link with room 7.
[ Room 8 | 3 pax ]

Special Security Features | DaHong Five Stars Homestay
Onwer is concern with the tenant safety issue. Thus, he purposely set all these special security features just to keep customers safety. For instance, when someone ring the bell, you can go to check out the screen to see who ring the bell. Or, you even able to access to TV for multiple views of your house for safety. Owner installed HyppTV so you guys can enjoy all the movies and show for many channels.


Overall I think this five stars homestay is definitely worth to stay because it comes with 5 stars facilities but with 3 stars price. I guess it would be so happening if we stay with total 46 friends and party here! LOL

  25. If going with a group of friends should book for homestay instead of hotel coz its more saving, space and also free to do the activities such as have games in the room and etc. Thanks for the information.
