Masbro Village Homestay, Melaka Review

February 12, 2017
Hi guys, today I'll  be sharing all about the Masbro Village Homestay in Melaka.


My friends came down to Melaka for a few days during Chinese New Year, and all 6 of us stayed at this cute homestay!


Address:
Lot 291, Batu 7 ½, Paya Rumput,, Jalan Paya Rumput Perdana, 76450 Malacca, Malaysia

First of all, as someone who comes to Melaka very frequently, I think I can say that this homestay is quite far from the city center. It takes 20 minutes to reach it from Melaka Sentral (around RM15-20 worth of Uber) and around 30 minutes to reach Jonker Street/the heritage area (around RM20-25 wirth of Uber).


There were 6 of us so we split into groups of 3 and divided the Uber fare. (There's no Uber XL option in Melaka yet). If you have a car this shouldn't be a problem. Parking is provided (although I forgot to take pictures of it haha)

So! Back to the village. My friend Caryn found this on Facebook/Instagram and I was like "What?". It looks so western! I couldn't believe it was in Melaka.

I would say that this "village" has 3 sections. First is the "front yard" with 6 houses, which you see as soon as you enter:


The pool area, which is by the pool (duh)


And the rest of the houses. I think there were about 14 of them in a single row:


The colours of the houses are just so cute, I cannot!


Anyways, only the first house has a 2nd floor balcony:


And I guess you could say it's the fanciest too, because it was the only one with decor outside.


We thought that all the houses would be by the pool, so when we got our purple house by the front yard, we were kinda disappointed. Oh well~


If you're interested in renting one of these houses, remember to ask if the ones by the pool are available! Not that there's anything wrong with the other ones, I guess it's just me being picky haha


Here's all of us! (The sun was so bright omg Melaka y u do dis)


I noticed that during the day, there's not much security by the front gate and that there were a few people who dropped by, took a pic and left. I guess if all you're after if pictures, then you don't have to commit to staying a night to get them.


I really should up my blogging game, because forgetful old me right here forgot to take pictures of the interior when we got there. So here's what the place looked like after we stayed in it haha.

There's a sofa bed downstairs:


As well as a dining area:


And a kitchen with a fridge and a microwave:


Upstairs there are two beds:


and there are 2 bathrooms, one on each floor:



I'd say that the place was okay, not too big and not too small. I did like that there were so many power outlets. We didn't have to fight for them haha.

It costs RM280 for one night, and to be honest I kinda feel like its a bit high. In total we stayed for 3 days and 2 nights, so everyone had to pay RM94 each. I guess if there's more people staying then it's more worth it, but keep in mind that there are cheaper places to stay in the town area, and that you're partly paying for the aesthetics of the place.

Also keep in mind that they charge RM100 as a deposit for the key. It's refundable upon check out.

All in all I  think I'd rate this place a 3.5/5. There's a laundry area by the office (which I also forgot to take a picture of), and the lady by the front desk was kinda friendly.

And that's it for this short update! As always, thanks so much for reading and see y'all in the next post 💞
