Art the homefinder's spot of the week


This week I have a two-bedroom, third-floor apartment near the German Embassy which is very good value.

The living room has comfortable cane furniture.

The kitchen is large and has plenty of storage room.

Atmosphere:
?????
This apartment features large rooms, polished timber floors, a big balcony with nice views as well as a rooftop garden and a very friendly landlord.

Utilities and service:
?????
Included in the rent is the water, cable TV, cleaning service, parking and the internet, something that few landlords do. Standard charges apply for the electricity. 

Security:
?????
The security in this street is good and the landlord has people on duty around the clock making sure the property is secure. The gates are locked and any visitors have to ring a bell to be let in.

Location:
????
This apartment is near the German Embassy, there are many shops, restaurants and Western-style cafes close by and the Lucky Supermarket is only a short walk away.

Value:
?????
The asking price is US$900 per month, which is negotiable for the right client. This is good value for this area and for this large apartment.

Furnishings:
????
This apartment is fully furnished with a comfortable, soft sofa and chairs, there is a gas stove and oven, a refrigerator and freezer and a Sony TV. All the rooms are air-conditioned and there are ceiling fans throughout, even on the balcony. The main bedroom also has a good, solid double bed.

Maintenance:
?????
Everything is in fine working order and all the appliances are almost new. The owner is on call if anything does go wrong, and you only have to walk to the ground floor to find him.                       
              
As always, my rating system is based on an innovative five Star rating system.
