  • The apartment was very easy to find and it's exactly what you see in the pictures. The bathroom is spacious and the place is fully furnished (kitchen, living area, etc). Skye left very detailed instructions on how to use the washer, heater, and also had very strong internet connection. Skye lent us a phone that we can use to call local numbers and also a pocket wi-fi device so we had wi-fi connection even though we were out of the apartment. Gyeongbukgong station (line 3, orange line) is 2 blocks away and this allowed us to travel throughout our stay without having to ride a taxi. Tourist spots are also very accessible from the apartment and there are a lot of convenience stores, coffee shops and local places to eat in that are all tourist friendly (had english menus) and very affordable.

    Response from Skye:

    Hope you had good flight back to home. Thank you for staying at my place and I am very happy you liked it. I look forward to see you in future again.

  • We stayed at Skye's apartment fot 2 nights. It's well equipt and very convenient, very near to Line 5 subway station, and you can go to Gwanghwamun and Gyeongbukgung just by walk. Further more, Skye is such a nice and warm-hearted guy. I will stay at his place again when I go to Seoul next time. ^^

    Thank you Mandy. I really enjoyed having a meal with your family. I also want to visit your town in future. Hope to meet again here or your place. Keep brushing up Korean ! Take care.

  • Skye's apartment is very clean, convenient and with all the necessary things such as the towels, shower gels, dinnerware etc. Skye is very helpful and responsive, he also provided us the wifi egg and mobile phone which are very useful. We definitely will choose this apartment again when we will be in Seoul next time!

  • It was a really good location for visitor. The loft just same as Skye described, all you need is in it, I personally like the washing machine which made us have clean clothes to wear. The area is quite safe. Skye is always to response you right away. The portable wifi is extremely great for addict internet users. This loft will be the best choice while I visit Seoul again!

  • We had a very enjoyable 1 week stay at Skye's apartment. The apartment was very thoughtfully prepared and had everything we needed and more. The apartment had a very large corner window which let in a lot of natural light and we loved reading there in the morning. Skye's wife is an art history teacher and so she left a lot of art and photography books from her own collection in the apartment for her guests to read. It was such a pleasure to read in that cozy corner. The apartment itself had lots of storage room and lots of drawer space for us to put our things. We were staying for 1 week so we really appreciated that we had the space to organise our things. There was also lots of cleaning supplies to refresh the apartment. Shampoo and bath gel was provided. The location is also very convenient and is only a couple of minutes walk to the subway station. Supermarkets and convenience stores are also very close. There (email hidden) convenience store right at the building. All in all I thought the apartment was very nice and Skye and his lovely wife are very thoughtful and considerate hosts. I would definitely return if I go back to Seoul again. Thank you for such a wonderful stay.

  • The apartment is just as advertised, very clean and location is perfect for our stay. The portable wifi provided comes very handy and thanks Skye for letting us do early check in and late check out! Will definitely stay again.

  • My roommate and I stayed in this apartment for 14 nights and the place was really comfortable and fully equipped with all the necessary appliances. The are instruction sheets for the washing machine, room heating and directions/guides to the vicinity. Skye is a very nice and friendly gentlemen and he prepared a detailed booklet of his own of how to get to the apartment from the airport and various necessary information. The apartment has iron+board, vacuum cleaner, hangers, towels, kettle, kitchen ware, toiletries and washing solutions. So almost everything was provided for guests to have a comfortable stay. There were 2 queen size beds that were clean, smelled nice and very nice to snuggle in. The best part was that he provided us with a phone to call Korean local numbers and a portable wifi. Overall, we were very pleased and enjoyed our stay here very much. I will recommend this place to anyone. The location is also great, you can walk less than 5 mins to gyeongbukgung and gwanghwamun mrt, which are both great areas to visit. And you can walk to city hall, dongdaemun and cheongyecheon!!

  • A naturally-lit, clean, spacious and well-furnished loft that made us feel right at home. Location was great - close to Kyobo, the famous Korean bookstore, and also a stone's throw away from Tosokchon, a famous Samgyetang restaurant. The Gwanghwamun area was a pleasant and walkable surprise. It was suitably lively without being overkill or touristic, with many interesting alleys, restaurants, cafés, and indie shops. The neighborhood was safe and quiet at night.

    The portable wifi device Skye provided us was incredibly useful, and we cannot thank him enough for his thoughtfulness. Skye was helpful and responsive to all our queries and requests. We also met his wonderful wife, who was cleaning up the apartment as we checked out of it. Without us requesting for anything, she helped us with our luggage and also directed our cab driver to our destination before we boarded the cab.

    The only regret we had was not having stayed longer in this apartment.

    Thank you to the lovely couple!
