Art the homefinder's spot of the week

The neigbourhood is very pleasant, and the apartment has a very friendly landlady. It is designed to make the most of natural light, with lots of windows to brighten the apartment. A large tree gives the place shade and keeps it cool.

Utilities and service:
The owner provided electricity, water, cable TV and garbage collection at standard prices and the internet are available on request.

There are security guards on duty 24-hours a day and the area is very safe, and popluar. Expats can walk through the area at night with no problem.

The apartment is quite close to Independence monument, which is a popular area with expats and Cambodians alike. It is only a short walk from the restaurants, shops, pharmacies and supermarkets in the BKK area.

This is great value for a quality apartment in this area. The owner is only asking for $850 per month,which is cheap for the level of amenities.


There is a stove and a modern refrigerator/freezer combination, and the owner has offered to buy a sofa.

Everything worked well during the visit by the homefinder. Maintenance is a matter of contacting the landlord.

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