About this listing
Exclusive 2 storey penthouse apartment right on riverside. Renovated to high standard. Ambient and welcoming space with the best views in the city. Cafes, restaurants and market are seconds away.
This is arguably the best located apartment in the city. Right on riverside, above the bustle. It is a gorgeous sanctuary. Perched above a world class restaurant and cocktail bar. With a 1st level cafe, bakery. Only 2 private apartments are built here. This is the Penthouse. The view is 2nd to none.
It has the best of the old and new. 100 m behind is the Tsar Kandal, a traditional Khmer market offering everything from fried spiders to a $2 pedicure. Great and real vibe. Get up early and see the market awake. Have a fresh coconut from the local sellers. The new. Well, restaurants, cafes. both traditional and uber-hip are seconds away. You are spoilt for choice and budgets. Go street or dress up and go classy. Your choice, its all right there.
Right downstairs there are great tuktuk drivers. We can recommend and organise a trusty one to make your trip safe and enjoyable.
Other Things to Note
I have a lot of experience and knowledge and love for cambodia even though I am a "barring". Please feel free to ask for advice or help on anything. I will try and help.
Please, in Airbnb style, enjoy the stay as you would your own house and respect it in the way you would like me to respect yours.
Frank was incredibly responsive and supportive during our stay. The home is beautiful and conveniently located, with all the amenities needed.
We wee 2 persons staying 4 days in the apartment and we were very comfortable during our stay. It is big, well equipped and the AC works fine (which is important). Great views of the river too from the terrace.
Incredible place. Top location. The rooms are exceptionally huge and very comfortable. Frankie was really accommodative and quick to respond to our queries. Location wise - this is easily the best place to be positioned in phnom penh. The photos dont do it justice.Now there are only two things to look out for in the place - stairs, be prepared to walk up a hefty way so it's not necessarily suitable for anyone with physical concerns. Water pressure - given it is up on the penthouse level, dont expect a great deal of water pressure - we weren't really fussed to be honest. Have a beer in the balcony and do some people watching one evening. You'll love it.
What a Fantastic Penthouse Apartment, great location had a very memorable 4 day stay and look forward to staying again.

The penthouse apartment is very charming. It's not the most comfortable place ever but certainly very charming. Great view of the city and the river. One of the bedrooms is great, and other, small and not so great. It is a 3 floor walk up. Not the cleanest and not the most lit hallway... We actually saw large cockroaches and even rats downstairs. But the charm of the apartment made up for it all. The terraces (2 of them) are simply gorgeous and the view of the city and river is spectacular.
Excellent place with loads of space in a prime location serviced by all amenities such as coffee, bread and laundries. We had a great time.

About the Host, Francis
I am Scottish born and live in Australia and Cambodia. I am very involved with training and education in developing nations, most especially with young disabled. This apartment was a labour of love as we renovated a slum building with broken rooms, no water or electricity into this beautiful icon while retaining and enhancing all its original architecture. We wanted others to see it is necessary to preserve and not knock down the character buildings.
