One of the many highlights of this villa is its renovated kitchen, complete with gas cooker, modern oven and plenty of storage space.

A new timber floor has been installed in the dining room, while the garden provides plenty of privacy.

Atmosphere:
?????
“Jungle villa” is a good description of this place. The outdoor area is outstanding and inside the spacious villa the owner has spent a lot on renovations, which have been tastefullly done.

Utilities and service:
?????
The owner will provide everything and when the bills arrive, he simply passes them on to his client and does not add extras, as some landlords do with electricity, water, etc.

Security:
?????
There is very good security here. The owner employs two security guards who work around the clock and the property is surrounded by high walls.

Location:
?????
This villa is next to a pagoda, it’s centrally located a short walk from the Independence Monument and set in an area popular with expats.

Value:
?????
The owner is asking for US$2,500 per month, which is good value for this large villa which features two large gardens and a very private setting. This type of property is very hard to find in Phnom Penh.

Furnishings:
???
The kitchen has been completely rebuilt, complete with an oven and plenty of storage space, there is a nice dining table and chairs and one of the bedrooms has a solid timber bed. But the owner prefers to let his clients buy their own furniture and he’s happy to help them shop around for bargains or just to find exactly what they want.

Maintenance:
?????
The whole place is spotlessly clean, the electrical and water systems have been updated, new tiles have been laid, the bathrooms and kitchen have been rebuilt and it’s like a new house, all set in a fabulous garden.                            

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