Our apartment is the ideal base to explore Langkawi, or simply to relax and enjoy the wonderful climate, scenery, food and culture of the island. Compared to similar standard hotel accommodation on the island, our rental rates are very reasonable, and we will be happy to help you help you make the most of your time on Langkawi. The apartment is located on the outskirts of Kuah (Langkawi's capital). It has forest to three sides of the complex so will regularly catch sight of monkeys (mostly macaque but some dusky leaf), and varying types of birds. I have never seen a snake or a large spider, although I am sure they live on the island somewhere! Shops are a ten minute walk away, whilst the town centre is five minutes more. It is a 20 minute taxi drive from the airport.

It is a 20 minute taxi drive from the airport. Containing all the modern amenities you would expect in a holiday apartment, all towels, bedding and final cleaning are also included in the rental charge. All rooms have fans as well as remote control air conditioning. There is a Panasonic flat screen TV, Wifi, washing machine, fridge/freezer and sound system that will plug into your MP3 player. There is also a selection of DVD's, games and books that you are welcome to use. However, a few drinks on the balcony is usually a better way to round off the day ! The main bedroom has an Emperor sized bed, with en suite shower room/lavatory. The second bedroom has two single beds, with adjoining bathroom and shower facilities. There is a fully kitted out kitchen, including a gas hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, and all the utensils needed to cook for four people. The living area has a leather reclining sofa and chair, whilst the dining area has a table and seating for six people. Please note this is strictly a non-smoking apartment - smoking is allowed on the balcony however. The apartment is located on the first floor, with a balcony overlooking the beautiful swimming pool, which is probably the best on the island for swimmers at 35m long, and with a depth ranging from 92cm to 153cm. The adjoining childrens' pool is great for kids being only 58cm deep. The apartment also comes with a travel cot. Overall Langkawi makes an excellent holiday if you like nature, beaches, great food, exploring, swimming and or just taking things easy. Eating, drinking and transport are not expensive, and crime is negligible. Its probably not so good though if you are looking for night clubbing or mega shopping, and probably Penang or Thailand would be a better place to visit if you are looking for these activities. Langkawi has a growing ex-pat community as Malaysia is becoming a popular retirement destination. If you are thinking of retiring there, then our apartment offers you an ideal way of dipping your toe in the water, and seeing if island life is for you. Alternatively, its a great place for couples and families who want to enjoy time together. Langkawi is a nature lovers paradise. Being assigned 'World Geopark' status by Unesco in 2007, the island provides the opportunity to experience natural wildlife in the raw. From acres of rain forest, to miles of unspoilt (and uncrowded) beaches, the island really is fascinating to explore, and readily accessible. As the complex is surrounded by forest, animals such as macaque monkeys, hornbills and dusky leaf monkeys pay regular visits, and evening brings the gentle buzz of night creatures. Car hire is recommended in order to see the main attractions of the island, and also to allow you to meet the wonderful inhabitants of the island who are welcoming and friendly to tourists. The road system is well maintained, car hire and taxi's are cheap, and petrol is a fraction of the price than in Western Europe (1.90 RM/litre). There really is no excuse to not getting out and about. The island enjoys duty free status, and whilst this makes alcohol relatively cheap, thankfully there is no excessive behaviour on the island or within the complex. More

Super zentrale Wohnung in einem gut geführten Komplex. Die Wohnung bietet als was man benötigt, wie z. B. WSchmaschine und Bügeleisen. Sehr gute Aufteilung, ideal für 4 Erwachsene. Das Highlight ist der riesige Poollandschaft in einem sehr gepflegten Garten. Für Sportbegeisterte steht ebenfalls ein GitnesstUm zur Verfügung... Wir waren von unserem Aufenthalt in der Anlage begeistert, der Kontakt zum Vermieter war erstklassig! Die Wohnung ist sehr empfehlenswert, gerne würden wir irgendwann wieder kommen.

We stayed at Chogm Villas the first two weeks in December and what a good choice we made! Beautiful apartment with everything you could need and more. There was a rental car waiting for us when we arrived which we used everyday to visit various beaches which were all beautiful and sometimes only about half a dozen people on them. It's a bit of an 'incline' up to the apartment and being 50 somethings we did find this a tad challenging, but, on the plus side, no weight gained during the holiday! The complex is lovely and quiet and very central for lots of lovely restaurants, night market etc. Not a very 'touristy' area which we think is why the restaurants were so cheap with a lot of local people eating in them. Not many sell alcohol but it's worth asking as sometimes it's just not on the menu. We had a wonderful time here and would highly recommend Chogm Villas for an unforgettable stay on beautiful Langkawi which remains really unspoilt.

We stayed for 8 days at this beautiful apartment with a well maintained large pool. Location was perfect for getting to all the attractions within Langkawi. The night market every Wednesday and Saturday was within 10 mins walk from the apartment. The apartment itself was very nice and spacious, with all the necessary home comforts. During the evenings we watched some of the large selection of DVDs. Well recommended and good value.

Our family, 2-adults / 2-kids (9 and 5-years), stayed at Stefan's apartment for two weeks. Everything from the initial booking through to requesting a later checkout, the day before we left, was done effortlessly and with excellent communication from Stefan. The unit was perfect for our family, it was clean, well furnished and had everything anybody would need. It was a perfect base for the two weeks, with all the restaurants just down the road and close to the town centre for shopping - away from the more expensive outlets at the tourist beaches. Stefan also provides a very helpful Langkawi guide, which proved indispensable and has a friend - who is lovely - who lives at the complex and gives you someone local to talk to with any queries or concerns you may have during your stay. The CHOGM villa complex is also quite nice, with well maintained gardens and very well maintained and clean pools, which we enjoyed twice a day. The whole experience was lovely and we plan to both return to Langkawi and stay at Stefan's apartment again. N/B: Taxis are very cheap but I would strongly recommend hiring a car as the attractions are located all over the island and three or four trips a day can mount up... Driving is very easy, the roads are great, well signposted and the traffic conditions light.

Ideal place to explore the island, but a car is essential. Apartment had everything you needed. Pool welcoming. Shame we went in the rainy season.

We spent two weeks staying at the Sunset Apartment. The apartment is well furnished and has everything you need for a great stay. The apartment is air conditioned and has free wifi, which meant we could keep in touch with home. There is a TV and DVD player and washing machine. the kitchen is very modern with an outside cooking area, which we did not really use as we ate out most of the time. The swimming pool is very impressive. It was never busy and was a good place to sunbath. The apartment is a short walk away from several shops and food outlets. More shops and restaurants are located a bit further away, but they too can be reached on foot. The night market is well worth the short walk as is the Rootian restaurant. To venture further taxis are quite cheap, as is car hire. We tried to see some of the island and found it to be delightful, with unspoilt beaches, super food and friendly people. A return trip is being planned.......

We rented the apartment for five nights in late August. It was the perfect base for exploring the island, nothing being more than about 45 minutes away by car. The lounge was very comfortable and dining/kitchen area well equipped although we didn't cook apart from breakfast. The master bedroom and ensuite were ideal for us, a good size and well furnished. A small balcony accessible from the lounge overlooked the complex's wonderful swimming pool and provided the perfect location for an evening glass of wine. The owner had provided a very detailed handbook about the apartment and about the island. This was much appreciated - everything we needed to know was there!

Have stayed in many holiday rentals but have to stay that this is probably one of the best. It was immaculate, great location and the pool outstanding. Unfortunately I had the flu the whole 8 days I was there and still do 4 weeks later, but will endeavour to come back again. Thanks Stefan for your professionalism, trust and for providing an apartment worthy of 5 stars. Kind Regards Bev and Anthony

Myself and four friends stayed here. It was absolutely gorgeous. My friend who had booked had been given all the necessary information before hand. Stephan provided us with a booklet of things to do, places to eat, taxi fares etc very handy indeed. The apartment was very clean and spacious. Everything needed was there - all kitchen equipment, iron, washing machine. There are air cons in every room. A selection of dvds, which we made use of. The view from the balcony is incredible. The pool was a massive bonus. It is huge. We swam everyday and there were never more than 3-4 other people in the pool. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you!!!

We stayed in this apartment for a week, we are 2 couples, there was plenty of room, the apartment was very clean and had everything that we needed. The information supplied by Stefan was great, we ate at the recommended restaurants, used the taxi numbers, went to the suggested beaches and other spots. The apartment also has wifi which is great for keeping in touch. The supplies left in the fridge were appreciated as we arrived late at night. The pool was very nice and never crowded. It was also fun to see the monkeys on the fence when we went out walking. Really enjoyed our week there.

About the neighbourhood
Kuah is pretty much everything you would expect of a large town with several banks, many shops, and home to most of the few ATMs on the island. It has a huge variety of different places to eat, covering most of the ethnic Asian types. It also has several large duty free stores, selling liquor, tobacco and chocolate at duty free prices.The climate provides guaranteed warmth all year round, with the rainy season providing a few hours rain a day before succumbing to the sunshine again. Temperatures are generally between 28C to 33C during the day. The islanders are very friendly, and as tourism is well developed on the island, they are used to being asked for help with directions!Within easy walking distance of the apartment there are places to eat, shops and a kids play park. There is also a beach for sunbathing only.
Getting around
There are no public buses on the island, but taxi's are plentiful and good value. I would recommend hiring a car for your holiday (or at least part of it) - exploration of Langkawi is great fun, and the road system is fine. The nearest shops to the apartment are a ten minute walk away, and the centre of Kuah is fifteen minutes.
