Art the Homefinder's Spot of the week

Art the Homefinder's Spot of the week

This week we have a huge three-bedroom apartment in the BKK1 area which is perfect for entertaining.

The huge balcony facing three sides not only brings in fresh breezes, but is also a great entertanment area for those cocktails at sunset, that weekend barbeque or simply lazing around in a hammock and relaxing.

Utilities and service:
The owners charge a reasonable price for the electricity and water. There is also cable TV, the apartment is fully air-conditioned and there are other regular services like garbage collection.  

There are security guards on duty through the day and night. The added safety feature of this place is its location on the first floor, well away from fences or trees, giving that added security.

This is a first-floor apartment within walking distance of supermarkets, local markets, restaurants and shops. This central area is very popular with expats working for NGOs.

The owners are asking for US$1,200 per month in rent, but added that the price is negotiable for a long-term tenant. This is good value for this part of town, because everything you need is nearby.

This apartment is fully furnished with good quality wooden pieces with soft cushions.  In the kitchen there is a gas stove, oven and refridgerator. The bedrooms all have solid timber beds as well as overhead fans and air-conditioning.

The kitchen is modern and the beds are comfortable.

Everything is in fine working order and all appliances are almost new.  If anything stops working, the owner is on call and will get any repairs done as quickly as possible.                                    

As always, my rating system is based on an innovative five thumbs-up rating system.
