This month, we had the opportunity to interview yet another Airbnb Superhost. This time, the Airbnb unit Pause Ipoh is located in Ipoh, Perak and the Superhost are a sweet, loving couple, Jason and Cheryl.
The story of Pause Ipoh started in 2016, when the engaged couple purchased a run-down house and saw the potential in it from the intact tiles and house structures.
Two months of renovation later, Pause Ipoh started creating history and beautiful memories for individuals seeking to take a break and just take a small pause from the busy lives that they have.
We aren’t surprised! They managed to give a traditional house a modern twist, retaining the mosaic floorings, traditional window grills, and the house structure. The surprising twist?
The couple has taken the liberty to plant a tree inside the house, giving it a more lively appearance.
Lots of rewiring and repainting later, Pause Ipoh also has the alluring charm of a clean and modern home, especially with all the modern furniture pieces that has filled the spaces in the house. We also love the huge chalkboard installed in this home – you know what you can do if you have time to spare here!
Read the interview below to find out what Jason and Cheryl has to say about Pause Ipoh and the story behind it all!

We love the meaning of “Pause”, it’s telling our guest to pause and relax for a while before continuing their journey.
Our initial plans were to purchase this house for own stay purposes. I mean, the moment I stepped into the house and saw the green mosaic tiles, I already fell in love with it!
We’re also proud of the bathroom. It’s a considerably bold choice to choose a black and white checkered flooring, as the bathroom is not as big as most of the modern houses.
