The space
James Oseland, former editor of an international gourmet food magazine, was asked a very difficult question: Which cities are the top three food destinations in the world? "PENANG would definitely be the first, followed by Mexico city and London," Oseland said.

Located at the most prime area of Butterworth where the transportation hub is just down the road, Cheerful Scandinavian Retreat is an easy enough journey over to the foodie Haven - Penang Island and Jalan Raja Uda at Butterworth.

With its extra space, excellent ventilation and great daylight, Cheerful Scandinavian Retreat is designed to envelope you in serenity granting you peace of mind for a truly restful holiday. Being near to the coast allows you to enjoy the sunset scene from the bedroom.

Experience local farmers' market, such as Apollo morning market, and make yourself a gourmet meal in the fully equipped KITCHEN. The kitchen is modernized with quartz stone counter, European wood like melamine cabinetry, and professional series kitchen appliances. These include a built-in cooker hood and a 2-gas hob, a microwave and a 2-door refrigerator. A water purifier is in place to provide safe and clean water to meet your daily needs. The BREAKFAST STATION is delightfully equipped with a toaster, a professional series stainless steel cordless electric kettle and a free flow of tea, coffee and sugar. Kitchen utensils, pans & woks, knife & chopping board, dish-washing accessories, cutlery, dinnerware, glassware & jug and serve ware are provided.

The LIVING ROOM is equipped with a LED flat screen TV, TV cable such as ASTRO NJoi and a DVD player. Other entertaining materials are fun board games, books and magazines.

The HALLWAY leading to master bedroom and second bedroom is furnished with a 4-feet desk for laptop, a comfy padded chair, a table lamp and a cool fan. The partition ensures peace of mind for maximal focus on your planning work. The space is designed to be as conducive as possible for your productivity.

The beauty of the two BEDROOMS are that one is overlooking magnificent swimming pool while the other with a commanding view of the ocean facing The Pearl of the Orient - Penang Island. These deluxe bedrooms are furnished with brand new huge built-in wardrobes, one queen sized bed and two single beds that comfortably host a family with children or four adults. With the aim of providing comfort and well-rested sleep, formaldehyde free anti-microbial certified Fibrelux mattresses are used. Price includes fine bed linens and towels.

The attached BATHROOM comes with standing shower with soft, warm lighting as well as unique window panels overlooking swimming pool for a more spacious and pampered feel. Both bathrooms are equipped with heaters. Basic amenities such as body shampoo, shampoo and toilet papers are provided.

The conducive LAUNDRY area is equipped with a washing machine, a standing sink as wash area, a wall mounted clothes drying rack and hangers.

Peace of mind, love and comfort. If these are the criteria you are looking for during your stay in Penang - really this is the one! :)

A year ago my husband and I decided to set up this place as our cheerful holiday home with simple Scandinavian in style as our theme, guided by a Singaporean interior designer. Hence, 'Cheerful Scandinavian Retreat' was born in March 2016. We look forward to connecting with people traveling to Penang and aim to make each guest feeling comfortable to dwell in this holiday home. Thanks for checking out our place and we hope to connect with you soon!
