Miami Green is located at one of Penang’s prominent addresses at Batu Ferringhi. Nestled at Jalan Pantai Miami, Miami Green is accessible via Jalan Batu Ferringhi. There are basic amenities at nearby area namely food outlets, schools (SJKC Pai Chai and Dalat International School), Tanjung Bungah wet market and community hall, shopping malls (Island Plaza, Gurney Plaza) and many others. It’s just minutes away from the five-star beach hotels.
There is also a Butterfly Farm, which is located right at the end of the tourist hotel strip at Batu Ferringhi stands on a 0.8 hector site in Teluk Bahang, about 17km from George town. The Tropical Spice Garden is another prime tourist attraction in Penang. It is native and exotic forests, fauna and flora to enjoy.
Miami Green will offer you a tranquil retreat from the city and so can be a good transit stop to break the long journey.
Local food stalls within walking distance.
5 minutes drive to the popular Night Market.
10 minutes drive to nearby Banks, Shopping Mall and Medical Centres.
15 minutes drive to the famed Gurney Drive for the best of Penang's Hawker & street specialty centres and markets along the way.
This is a self-cater home. We are more than happy to pre-stock the kitchen with your grocery list, just ask! There is a small convenience shop in the complex selling groceries and food.
The condo caters to both adults and children and the apartment is a home away from home. For large groups, family reunions, weddings, etc. we have other unit available in other part of Penang that will sleep up to a total of 8-9.

We have been renting out our apartments since year 2010. We are staying at one of the units within the same complex. So please do not hesitate to knock on our door if you need help or a cup of coffee ;)
Sharon Oo purchased this condo in 2013
We love our apartments and the neighbourhood. It is well maintained. Everyone loves the big pool and the beach nearby.
What a fantastic experience it was to stay in this unit and work with Sharon. The apartment has a fantastic location close to the beach, night market, food, etc. Just about everything we ever needed was around. The apartment itself was clean and spacious with the added bonus of an awesome unlimited internet access! The apartment is also suitable for long stay or second home. Very quiet and peaceful. Nice neighborhood & friendly staffs. The pool was great. We were in the pool every evening. Sharon was an awesome host, very accommodating and friendly. Anything we ever needed she was ready to provide. When I read so many positive reviews (well, some from other websites - Airbxx) I thought there was going to be some sort of catch but honestly this was everything I could have hoped for and more. The next time I come to Penang I have every intention of booking this unit again as I can't imagine it gets much better than this. Will absolutely be recommending this place to anyone traveling down there.
[Continued from part 1...]
The apartment has a balcony which could comfortably seat 4 adults, but there's only a small table for two out there. The balcony could do with a ceiling fan for those hot summer nights, and it would also help to dry clothes faster as it doesn't get much direct sunlight. The apartment has a WiFi box which worked well, but if you're someone that uses the internet a great deal then I'd recommend informing them in advance so that they can ensure you have enough data stocked up. The first few GB are free, but if you use the free data up, then there's a small charge to top up - you can buy 2GB or 4GB for whatever Maxis is charging.
The management, Sharon and Leslie are warm and friendly, and respond quickly if you need to reach them. Overall we very much enjoyed our stay and felt that this was good value for money. We would definitely consider staying at Miami Green again.
Just 5 minutes drive to Batu Ferringhi, and 10-15 minutes drive to Gurney Plaza, Miami Green is superbly located for a great family getaway. Located just behind the Hydro Hotel, where walk-in guests can enjoy the poolside restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner. But, the apartments kitchen is fully appointed with everything you need if you'd prefer to cook at home. The fridge is huge - big enough to accommodate the needs of 4 - 6 adults and a couple of children. The lounge and dining area is spacious, though the lounge area could do with an additional sofa (or a bigger sofa than the one that was there when we stayed) or a couple more single lounge chairs.
There's plenty of power-sockets for all of your electronics, but the single bedroom could do with the addition of a power socket as there is none. All of the air-conditioners work very well, and the hot water tanks are big enough for long hot showers. The water pressure isn't fantastic, but it is certainly adequate. There's a water filter in the kitchen so one doesn't necessarily need to stock up on bottled water for the fridge, but this is still advisable for those with sensitive tummies. There's ample wardrobe space, and loads of coat hangers.
The cleaning service is available on call and is a small additional charge per visit (minimum of 4 hours, at just RM 15.00 per hour) and they'll even do your ironing. There's an iron and ironing board supplied. It would be great if there was also a vacuum cleaner supplied, but there's was a broom and dust-pan which sufficed.
The pool is awesome and gets adequate shade during the day so the water stays lovely and cool - the perfect temperature, probably anywhere between 20 - 22 degrees. There's a water-slide for kids (and adults!) but it's quite a quick one so adult supervision is recommended. The Gym is well appointed, and there's changing rooms and a sauna attached. There's also a games room with a table tennis table but I didn't notice if there's any bats and balls available. [To be continued...]
6-8 min minutes walk across to the beach and public transport. The bus is a lot cheaper and more fun, but a taxi will get you to destination quicker.
7-10 minutes drive to the famous Batu Ferringhi Spice Garden, night market, restaurants and local food court.
10 minutes to latest and the first retail marina, i.e. Straits Quay, Tesco, Island Plaza - Cold Storage supermarket, Coffee Bean.
12 min to Penang National Park, Butterfly Farm, Penang Hard Rock Cafe
15 minutes to the famed Gurney Drive for the best of Penang's Hawker & street specially with centres and markets along the way.
20 minutes to Georgetown Heritage City Centre.
The airport is about 55 minutes - 1 hour away (if traffic is smooth).
Night market takes place 7-10 min driving from the apartment. In the evening there are many stalls along the roads where you can buy anything you want. For example bags, watches, cd´s, dvd´s, clothes, suitcases and all kinds of souvenirs. You can have dinner at any of the many restaurants available. At the hawker centre you can choose from European, Japanese, Vietnam, Middle East, Indian or Chinese food.
For a wide selection of European foods it is best to go to The Ship. In this replica of a galleon they serve an excellent steak. At the fish restaurant Eden, they serve the best fish dishes. During the weekend the restaurant is very busy with people from Georgetown.
Since the apartment is on Batu Feringghi, one can explore many attractions in the north along the coastal road besides Batu Ferringhi beaches and night market, namely Penang National Park, Penang Butterfly Farm, Teluk Bahang Dam, Tropical Spice Garden, Hard Rock Cafe, Tropical Fruit Farm or even go for a round island tour down to Balik Pulau for some durian if it's in the season.
Many people go for trips on the island, as Penang is an island where there is always something to do and no chance of getting bored.
There are plenty of opportunities to do aquatic sports. You can rent a catamaran, surfboard or jetski. You can also go parasailing or make a banana boat ride. Boats sail to for instance Monkey beach.
Another possibility is to book an excursion to Pula Payer (just 2 hours by boat), where you can snorkel amongst the Coral Reef and feed small sharks. Anyone who does not feel like going on an excursion, there is plenty to do along the beach.

How To Get To Miami Green
(1) Arrive at Penang International Airport - served by a range of airlines including Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Air Asia, Firefly Airlines. The airport is located in the southern part of Penang Island. Note that the airport is undergoing major renovation works at the moment although flight services are running as scheduled.
(2) A taxi from the airport is the best way of getting to the apartment, especially after a long flight. Taxis at the airport are readily available. There is a taxi counter at the arrival lounge at a prescribed coupon rate. Always confirm the price with a taxi driver as a matter of good practice. We will be very happy to arrange for transport privately if you prefer (at competitive rates).
(3) Hiring a car is certainly worth considering as it will make getting around much easier, allowing you to enjoy Penang at your own pace. Here are a couple of providers.
That said, hiring a car is not essential. Taxis are plentiful and many will agree to chauffeur you around all day at a day rate. Batu Ferringhi is also well served by public buses (Rapid Penang bus routes 101 and 103 at the time of writing).
