Art the homefinder's spot of the week

Atmosphere:
****
The apartment has a small balcony. It has been designed with many windows, letting plenty of light in and cooling the place down with a gentle breeze.

Utilities and service:
****
Standard prices apply for utilities such as electricity, water and cable TV, while a hook-up to the internet is available on request.

Security:
****
The owner does not employ a security guard, but the street is quiet. Many expats live in the area, and report there are few security problems around there.

Location:
****
Located in up and coming BKK3 neighbourhood, this apartment is a short walk to Lucky Supermarket and the restaurants and amenities in BKK1.

Value:
*****
The US$850 price tag is negotiable for the right tenant. The three-bedroom apartment comes furnished, and has a pleasant atmosphere. It is good value for a clean apartment of this calibre in the area.

Furnishings:
*****
The kitchen comes with a stove, a washing machine, a refrigerator, and plenty of counter space. The living room has a wooden sofa and a television, while the bedrooms all come with air conditioning and furnishings such as two beds with mattresses. The third bedroom has been converted to an office, but can be switched back.

Maintenance:
*****
Everything is in working order, but if a problem does arise, the owner will arrange to have it fixed.

As always, my rating system is based on an innovative five Stars rating system.
