One of the trends in traveling today is not booking yourself into a hotel but into a fully equipped condominium where you can have the space, as well as the togetherness between friends or family. The rise in Airbnb.com has opened up opportunities for many condominium owners and investors to jump on this bandwagon and one of the company that is excelling in this is called Little Cabin in Penang.
We had an opportunity to stay at two of their “little cabins” recently during our trip to Penang ~ in the upscale condominium – the Landmark by Katana in Tanjung Tokong. We had a unit of the studio room as well as a unit of their larger unit – a 3 bedroom 3 bathroom unit.
The studio room is well appointed, comes with a king size bed in the bedroom and a sleeper sofa in the living hall. The kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with dishes and silverware. There is a full-size refrigerator as well as some pots and pans. You can really cook up a meal for yourself.
The studio unit comes with one bathroom as well as a dining table and a high-bar table. All the units are equipped with high-speed internet and the LED TV are loaded with local and international channels.
The studio unit also comes with a balcony outside of the bedroom overseeing the famous Gurney Drive
The three-bedroom three-bathroom meanwhile is super spacious – if not mistaken is probably more than 2000 sq feet unit with a balcony. The master bedroom come en-suite, while the other two rooms in the main area shares a bathroom in the main hall while another bathroom is located behind the kitchen and the “maid’s room”.
The unit comes with a full-function kitchen with a full size refrigerator also, as well as a set of washing machines, making it really an ideal long-stay unit.
This huge unit comes with a minimalist-inspired dining hall setting and a living hall with a L-shaped sofa and a large LED TV extending out to a lovely balcony with the Gurney Drive view.
The Landmark by Katana is served by two swimming pools, a children’s playground, a gymnasium, meeting rooms, bbq area as well as an upcoming row of shop. Parking is convenient but one has to check-in and get the parking pass before they can access into the parking lot. Security up the condominium is good, but also mean can be a little tedious as both going up and down will require the security card.
Food is easily obtained at this location with the Precinct 10 just located beside the property and there after Island Plaza Mall. There are wide choices of food within a 10 minute walking radius from food court to fast food to famous chicken rice and good nasi kandar to high end Japanese restaurants.
Little Cabin has more than 15 units of condominium in just The Landmark by Katana in various sizes and designs, and plans are abound for more units to come online in the nearby Jazz Suites.

They also now started customized tour packages for their occupants be it airport transfers, to local transportation and tour guiding services, trip planning and etc. Simply an amazing team that focuses on giving that value to your stay in Penang.
