Hi All. I am planning my 2nd visit to Malaysia in 2012. This time, I really want to do a homestay to know the people and culture. Can someone recommend a good homestay in Kul or Langkawi ? Should be clean - good people - and cheap :)

Did homestay only once. Liked it but I guess at that time there was still a long way to go (as we did it in 2006). Tourism Malaysia is putting much effort into Homestay; promoting it as the premier way to get to know local culture better. However, if I look at the homestay websites it is unclear whether it is just about people renting out a vacant home in a kampung or more than that (where they offer the complete homestay experience). Many website list many available houses for rent, sometimes for well over RM300 per night (kinda beats the purpose to me because it should also be affordable right?).

We did homestay in Kota Kinabalu. Don't know any places to recommend in KL or Langkawi. Perhaps you can find something interesting via the following links:

Official Homestay website of Tourism Malaysia
Malaysia Homestay (listing 1)
Malaysia Homestay (listing 2)

Has anyone used this site - http://www.homestaybooking.com/ ?
I have contacted few ppl and got responses - they say few are 'verified' by police too.. but I would rather go by personal recommendation than online recommendations.

Ilya: sorry for the late reply. well taking into consideration of cost and location plus staying near to a few hot spots in melaka i say that Residents Stay~ Frog or Residents Stay~ Cactus or CALANTHE ARTISAN LOFT are few of the best choices; anyhow you could visit the site for more as they keep updating the site quite often with more new homestays; so im sure you can have more options....

Hi, just want to share.

I have been numerous times to Malacca as following my husband attending his meeting & had tried many homestay also. From my last 3 visits to Malacca, I'm had dealing with this owner only as he has many type of homestay, from the economy type to luxury with a very good price. Since his homestay were nice decorated, clean & some more very cheap, ofcourse i would be always dealing with him.

This is his blog where i found his homestay - http://www.anugerahhomestaymelaka.com/

It appears to be a nice and affordable place. The only thing that might be reasons for us to look further is that it appears to be located quite far out of Malacca town centre...
