A cat lover's choice. This is an unusual opportunity for a creative retreat in an art production house. Maximum stay is 2 nights. It is a hidden oasis right in the heart of KL city. The artist will be around for most of your stay with the company of 3 cats and 2 hens. You may engage with her and do some art if you wish.
This is a unique courtyard property converted into a production house of a Taiwanese-Malaysian artist in her early 40s. The eclectic refurbished space was an old ground floor courtyard flat in the heart of downtown Kuala Lumpur. If you are looking for an unusual experience, this is a creative retreat to discover your inspired identity.
You will stay in the artist's own loft bedroom adjoining a mini library and a personal restroom. She uses another room when there are guests. The shower room is in another room adjoining the laundry room.
You may spend time in the garden courtyard where the cats like to chill with the chickens, or use the living room where the 2 pianos sit.
The artist is usually busy and creates in multiple disciplines - music, painting, writing, 3D & design. You could engage with her and try a hand at creating something.
Although it is a serene space, the surrounding neighbourhood is busy almost 24 hours.
The scenes right beyond the gates are very street-level, a stone's throw from all the Lonely Planet spots in a part of Kuala Lumpur many local Malaysians do not even get to experience. Not for the timid - only the adventurous and street-wise loner need consider this lifestyle option. Upmarket malls and hotels, as well as local food stalls are within walking distance but it is also acceptable to use Uber if you prefer not to walk.
The area is also known as a foodie haven for all budgets. All amenities are available within the house - for laundry, simple cooking, et cetera. Basic groceries are easily obtained nearby. You get 2 fresh eggs from our hens for breakfast. The artist will be able to give you precise recommendations to the best food, or connect you to people who might be of help to you.
You can even get acupuncture treatment at home as the artist's mother is a reputable healer and TCM practitioner.
This 1600 square feet disable-friendly ground floor flat is only open to artists (or aspiring) seeking creative refuge, art collectors or burnt out corporates seeking personal breakthroughs. Honeymooning couple seeking a unique city adventure will be considered. Do write in.
Designed by an interior architect, artist, composer, and author who recovered from spine tumours - this eclectic space was refurbished to house her father's collection of nautical hardware that she inherited. All the fans and windows has been replaced by antiques collected from old properties of downtown Kuala Lumpur. This place is a well-kept secret reserved for a wanderlust creative and intend to remain undiscovered by the masses. There are a few layers within the house. The premise is a relaxing space (despite the busy streets outside) suitable for the discovery of your inspired identity. Many people tend to forget to keep time when they come through the gates.
Photography and filming will need prior permission, with or without fee.

Hello! I am a Taiwanese-Malaysian artist and I travel the world for art, humanity, and project collaborations. Also I will go far for gastronomical experiences.
I use a compact mobility scooter to get around. This means I prefer to find properties that are as flat as possible and near disable friendly subway stations. It should have minimal steps from the entrance of building to the doorstep of the airbnb. I will not use the scooter inside the house, only bring inside to charge batteries.
Before I became a full time artist, I was a jewellery designer & an interior architect. Now I paint, make objects, design for fashion and retail, compose music and make animation films. Besides that I am an active advocate for several humanitarian causes.
My art production house is situated in the heart of downtown Kuala Lumpur. I refurbished the property and designed a creative space to house my various production. Most of my visitors are art collectors or friends in the media, by invitation only.
