Art the homefinder's spot of the week


The furnishings are impressive, but the large balcony is the highlight of this place

This apartment’s living room is nicely furnished and quite spacious.

The large balcony is the best feature of this apartment, and offers a great place to relax or entertain guests.  WILL BAXTER


Both bedrooms have windows that provide an adequate amount of external light.  WILL BAXTER

Atmosphere:
★★
This second floor apartment has many amenities, but the highlight of the place is the large balcony. It’s the perfect place to relax in the evening with a group of friends, providing a perfect oasis in the heart of the city.

Utilities and service:
★★
Standard prices apply for water and electricity, without the mark-up demanded by many landlords. An internet connection is available on request.

Security:
★★
There’s no security guard for the apartment, but locals say it’s situated on a quiet street.

Location:
★★
Located in BKK3, the apartment is some ways from downtown. However, the location does have its benefits – the neighbourhood is quiet and safe, with street lights at night.

Value:
★★★★★ 
The owner is asking $500 a month. That’s a good price for a two-bedroom apartment in this area, particularly one with nice furniture and an attractive balcony.

Furnishings:

Comes with all the necessities. Both bedrooms have aircon, while the living room has standing fans, couches, and a new flat-screen television. The kitchen is also fully equipped.

Maintenance:
★★★★
The owner has recently had all the appliances checked. If any are not working, talk to the owner and he will have them fixed.

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