There's so much to love about Johor. From exciting things to do to delicious Muslim-friendly food, it's no wonder Malaysians love to plan a road trip to the south of Peninsular Malaysia.
While we're staying safe at home, we can't help but think about the amazing homestays in Johor we can visit once the situation gets better. If there's an accommodation we would love to stay in Johor someday, it has to be this one!
Situated in Batu Pahat, Sixty Nine Avenue Residence is one of the most adorable homestays to spend the night in Johor. Just a short drive from Wet World Batu Pahat Water Park, the residence consists of two English countryside cottages, namely Victoria Country and Eglantine Cottage.
While Sixty Nine Avenue Residence doesn't exactly boast the surroundings of the countryside (it's located in the city), the cottages' architecture and garden will make you feel like you're spending a weekend overseas.
Ideal for a small group of family or friends, we recommend booking both Victoria Country and Eglantine Cottage, so you can have the entire residence to yourself.
Victoria Country is a one-bedroom guest house that can accommodate up to 3 people. It has a queen-size bed, a dining area, and an adorable pantry complete with a microwave and a kettle (perfect for some English Breakfast tea!).
Eglantine Cottage is a two-bedroom guest house that can fit up to 6 guests. You're going to love staying in the Piccadilly room that has a view of the cottage's adorable 'My Secret Garden' that's situated in front of the residence. This cottage also has a living room, a dining room, and a well-equipped kitchnette.
In terms of accessibility, Sixty Nine Avenue Residence is within driving distance from Square One Mall and Aeon Big Mall, so you can shop for halal ingredients and snacks to prep in the kitchen. Besides that, there are other interesting spots near the residence too, including Penggaram Square, Minyak Beku Beach, Old Street Commercial Centre, and Gallery of Dato' Onn.
If you're looking for an Instagrammable homestay in Johor, you're going to enjoy spending your weekend at Sixty Nine Avenue Residence! While you're here, don't forget to check out the super yummy makan places in Johor Bahru for teh tarik madu kaw and sup tulang.
