The next time you’re planning a weekend getaway to Langkawi, you may want to consider staying at Jesseca Liu and Jeremy Chan’s home. Yes, you read that right. Since January, the newlyweds have been running a homestay in Jesseca’s hometown of Langkawi. Aptly named J’s Home ("J” stands for the couple’s initials), the Pinterest-worthy apartment comes with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a toilet, a living room and a kitchen, with the capacity to accommodate eight to 10 people.
Nestled in the heart of Kuah town, J’s Home is just a skip and a hop away from the island’s main attractions, night markets and largest duty-free shops. It’s also just a five-minute walk from the three Bellis Spa outlets and 3pm dessert café (which, in case you didn’t know, are owned by the Ch 8 actress too). No, Jesseca (probably) won’t greet you at the door or hand you the keys. But if you stay at J’s Home, you get to Instagram up a storm at the space prettily done up by Jesseca herself, eat at the same dining table as Jesseca and Jeremy, and, um, sleep in the same bed that they slept in. Already, Jesseca tells us that business has been “quite good” and that their Airbnb is “almost fully booked every weekend”. We speak to the 39-year-old to find out more about her recent money-making endeavour.
