Most importantly, Jonker Street is just a 15-minute walk away. The Nest House is an Eco-friendly, industrial artistic design which is totally Instagram worthy.


All the artworks inside and outside have been designed specifically for THE NEST HOUSE by Australian artist Melanie Bayoud of #embeedesigns. Lots of Instagram worthy artwork at the back of every open wardrobe to have fun with. Take some amazing shots up on the roof deck with our famous graffiti wings. Hashtag your photographs, @thenesthousemelaka and Melanie, at #embeedesigns.


The photographs throughout the house were taken by Australian photographer Kerry Mcconnachie #billygoats_2_chopsticks of the original house before demolition occurred. You will notice the intensity of the patina and colours in the photographs creating a mystery of years of family use here before the NEST HOUSE was created.


The garden courtyard has been designed for getting to know your fellow travellers. Take your coffee outside and enjoy the morning sun while making plans for your day. A great area to relax at night after an exciting day exploring the history of Melaka.
