The Kukup Seaview Homestay was opened by fisherman Yeo Aik Lin and his wife Tey Hong Ling in 2008... The 7-bedroom concrete house on stilts commands a great view of the nearby mangrove and Malacca Straits...
The homestay offers 2 packages - a 2-day one-night package at RM90 per person... and another package from Singapore at RM239 per person that includes van transport from a designated pick-up point in Singapore... Both packages provide all meals, including a seafood barbecue in the evening... Guests enjoy a free flow of soft drinks and beverages such as homemade "chin chao" jelly and warm barley drinks... During the second day, guests get a sightseeing trip to a "kelong" or fish farm... It only costs an additional RM5 for a boat ride to nearby Kukup island, which is the world's second largest mangrove island...

My family and I enjoyed the attention from our flame haired hostess to the utmost. She took care of all needs right from where we could park our vehicles, to the best place for seafood, down to a local tour of the fishing farms... My mom loved her potted flowers outside on the porch and boy did it make her happy to talk about them...You have to realise that the folks here opened their homes to visitors for such a small fee that such hospitality seems really amazing (Imagine strange ppl coming into your home!)...

This is the new chalet in Kukup that one of our friend recommended. The owner is very friendly. The chalet is new and the back of the house is windy. You can see a sunrise and sunset from the front and back of the house respectively.
We took a RM70 package which provide us lunch, after lunch tea, dinner, breakfast, seafood lunch @ restaurant and a short tour. We went for the mangrove tour with the boat.
The place is windy and new. We like the unblock view front and back of the house. We like specially the sunrise and sunset view of the house.
This is the third time for me to have a 2D1N stay in Kukup and although it has been many years the prices haven't really gone up as some other places.. We took a RM70 package which provide us lunch, after lunch tea, dinner, breakfast, lunch and a short tour.
The resort is considered clean and tidy. And the friendly owner did take good care of us.
On one of my trips to Kukup, I walked around the stilty village and talked to the locals over there. To my surprise, I found out that there were quite a number of nice chalet houses available for rental. One such chalet house that I popped in held a big group of Christians who were there for a nice rustic retreat.

You'll be living in a house on stilts, facing the Straits Channel so do expect gorgeous views during sunset and sunrise. You can also catch views of fishermen in their small motorised boats chugging home with the day's catch and many women sitting around, shelling clams.
