The kitchen is modern and the beds are comfortable.

This nice two-bedroom apartment is in the Daun Penh area, which is popular with expats and teachers.

Atmosphere:
????
There are no noisy construction sites nearby and this fourth-floor apartment has nice views to the north from the balcony and gets fresh breezes. It is in a quiet street close to some of Phnom Penh’s largest private homes.

Utilities and service:
?????
The cost of water is US$5 per person per month, the cable television is also $5 per month and the high-speed internet is $35 a month if you want it, but if you don’t use it, you don’t pay.

Security:
?????
There are 24-hour security guards and the area is very safe. The owners of the big houses in this street also have security guards on duty throughout the night, so the area is very secure.

Location:
?????
This is a fourth-floor apartment in walking distance of schools, supermarkets, local markets, restaurants and shops. This central area is very popular with expats working for NGOs.

Value:
?????
The owners are asking for US$650 per month in rent, but they say the price is negotiable for a long term tenent. This is good value for this part of town which has everything you will need nearby.

Furnishings:
????
This apartment is fully furnished with basic but good quality cane pieces including a sofa with soft cushions.  There is also good storage space in the kitchen, which boasts a gas stove, oven and refridgerator. The bedrooms have overhead fans as well as air-conditioning.

Maintenance:
????
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 stars rating system.
