[JB] JBUtopia Homestay @ Taman Mount Austin Johor Bahru

Instead of hotel hopping, we have been trying out homestays as an alternative. After our first wonderful homestay experience at Menara Hartamas, we decided to return again during the June school holidays.

As we are travelling with another family, more bedding is required and we find the units at JBUtopia Homestay suits our needs based on availability and budget.

We picked the unit that comes with 3 Queen size beds and a sofa bed. Comfortable and big enough for about 7-8 people to sleep. We also brought our sleeping bags along just in case more space and privacy is needed.

Living Room - This is where 2 Queen size beds, sofa bed and TV console is located. Just this space alone felt like a hotel room with a cozy extended seating space for small groups to gather.

Extending to the right is the entry to toilet, bedroom and dining/kitchen area. 

Though the dining space looks small, it can sits 8 guests comfortably and everyone managed to catch World Cup together.

Having some drinks while following closely to the World Cup matches!

Bedroom with a Queen-size bed and ample room space for another sleeping bag.

Night view of Mount Austin. If you are lucky, you may spot fireworks too!

Clean toilet/shower room with towels, hair dryer, shampoo and body soap are provided. Guests have to bring their own toothpaste and toothbrush.

Zoom in to the kitchen and laundry room. 

The unit is clean, brightly lighted and nicely decorated.  We had a lovely 3D2N stay over the Hari Raya Puasa weekend with our friends and the children had fun! Unit is booked via Airbnb and the host is responsive to our queries.
