Cool breezes come through this apartment from the balcony.

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

Atmosphere:
????
This two-bedroom apartment is in the heart of the capital in a quiet, dead-end street and has a nice  balcony and gets plenty of cool breezes.

Utilities and service:
?????
There is very little to pay, apart from the water and electricty bills. All the appliances are quite new and in fine working order.  

Security:
?????
Being in a dead-end street, there are few problems for residents. The apartment owners in this street have security guards on duty through the night.

Location:
????
This is a first-floor apartment in walking distance of many schools, supermarkets, local markets, restaurants and shops. There are few apartments available for this price in this area. It’s a perfect location for teachers with many schools nearby.

Value:
?????
The owners are asking for US$350 per month in rent, but they may come down slightly if a good offer is made.

Furnishings:
????
This place is fully furnished with basic but good quality cane pieces including a sofa (below). There is also a TV, a Panasonic fridge and freezer, a Panasonic washing machine, gas stove and air-conditioning. There is also good storage space in the kitchen and solid timber beds in the two bedrooms.

Maintenance:
????
Everything is in fine working order and almost new.  If a new tenent wanted to change anything, a simple chat with the owner would be all that’s needed.                                    

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