If you're looking for a place to escape into pure tranquility, Smell Rose Beach Garden will whisk you away into total relaxation

With an amazing sea view, and soft, delicate beach, open the gates of this garden-inspired home to a nirvana of protruding green foliage. The laidback feel would level the competition among some of Penang's finest hotels.

Just on the fringe of the ever popular Tanjung Bungah beach is a sojourn with a private entrance for occupants on arrival to the villa

Secluded and undisturbed from the bustle of the main city, the locale is a dream come true for those who need a break from their busy lives.

Free parking spots are available on the premises of the property, as well as free street parking too. For an additional layer of comfort and ease, guests will be allowed to have an early luggage drop off should they arrive earlier or later than anticipated.

Step inside and take in the minimalistic features that are tastefully decorated with a Japanese feel to it

As you enter through the front doors, be greeted by the chabudai-styled dining table as a gathering space or for meals. 

Just shouldering the dining space is the living area, with comfortable wing chairs, a rattan chair, and a lawn chair placed neatly together. Fixtures of greenery and naturalistic elements are splattered throughout the area, making for a cosy, yet uncomplicated layout.

The walls and flooring oscillate between hues of pale beige and variations of white, keeping things modern without losing its touch of chicness. Some fun additions include the television tray that also makes for a nice entryway table if needed.

For guests' convenience, WiFi is available on the premises, as well as a first aid kit. Security cameras are also scattered throughout the property to ensure safety at all times.

While the kitchen area is rather subdued as compared to the other areas in the property, multiple amenities are provided should anyone choose to cook up a storm during their stay.

Among that which are provided include a refrigerator, a microwave, cooking basics including oil, salt, and pepper, pots and pans, a stove, an oven, a hot water kettle, baking sheets, and even a bread maker if you feel like playing Snow White for a day.

Simple dishes and cutlery are provided as well, including bowls, chopsticks, plates, and cups. Therefore, you won't have to worry if you don't feel like going out to eat, and instead would like to bring some ingredients to the homestay to make your own food.

The absolute highlight of the stay would have to be the beach and garden combo, that manifests a courtyard view straight out of heaven

Open the folding doors of the living room and peek through the glass wall to get a stellar view of sea and sand. Step outside and lounge on the deck chairs in the garden, or unlock the gates and bolt to the beach as fast as you can.

Host your own garden-themed party outside at the patio table, that comfortably seats 10 for a day of pure fun

The property consists of four bedrooms and five bathrooms, spaciously accommodating up to nine people for one stay

While all four bedrooms are unique and distinct, they each have certain similarities. For starters, all rooms have their own personal flatscreen television, so you can kickback and have a movie marathon right in your bed if you want.

Furthermore, every bedroom has extra pillows and blankets if you want to feel snug, with room-darkening shades and air-conditioning in case you need a break from the sun.

Breaking down all four rooms, only one room resides on the first floor. This bedroom has its own sliding doors which lead straight to the patio and garden. Housing one king-sized bed, you can step outside for the morning breeze or head to the beach whenever you feel like it.

The remaining three bedrooms are located on the second floor of the home. Two of the bedrooms have one queen-sized bed, but vary slightly in layout.

One of the bedrooms has its own swing chair, right at the window so you can rock yourself to sleep with the beautiful view. It also has a study table, should you need to do some quick work during your getaway. 

The other bedroom, however, has an immaculate private garden on the balcony, so you can unwind in solitude without needing to share the space with your other friends or family. With a small patio dining set, you are ensured total privacy with the bamboo dividers from the neighbours. Meditate, have some tea, or just take in the salty ocean air!

The fourth and final bedroom would most likely be considered the master bedroom. With one king-sized bed and one sofa bed, the style and flare of this room sings throughout its decorative pieces.

Some of the fun embellishments include the addition of a study table and wing chair. Furthermore, a swing chair is also placed for a direct view of the ocean, so you can sway your way into paradise. Take a load off on the sofa bed and watch some Netflix, or take a nap without a care in the world.

Last but certainly not least, each bedroom possesses its own bathroom, with one additional bathroom located in the common area of the hall. Each bathroom comes with a hair dryer, shampoo, shower gel, and a hot water heater

Toilet essentials such as towels and toilet paper are provided for every guest, so you don't need to trouble yourself to bring these items if you need to save packing space. There's also a washer within the home in case you need to clean your clothes.
