The Space

Hi!

Our condo (email hidden) very close to shopping areas including Chatuchak Weekend Market, Major Ratchayothin, Union Mall and Central Ladprao. It is near BTS and MRT Stations (although not right on either line).

It offers very convenient access to most parts of town by BTS, MRT or Taxi (taxi to Sukhumvit area will only cost you about 3-4 USD).

The unit is very spacious and family friendly with a large kitchen area and large (common) swimming pool. There is a balcony with outstanding views of northern Bangkok that will refresh you every morning before you leave and recharge you every night after you come home.

There is a washer and dryer available, these are at laundry shops in the building, however the prices are very reasonable.

Please be sure to look at all the property photos!

Many people ask about a discount, and to be fair, this condo is priced very competitively for what you get, so unfortunately no discounts can be given. Thanks for checking us out, please book early!

Cultural phenomena, shopping delights and tourist treasures abound. Welcome to Bangkok; one of the most cosmopolitan, contrasting and, above all, compelling of Asian cities. A steamy, pulsating, yet smiling metropolis of more than ten million – intense at first, but addictive as anything.

Come find your niche among dazzling temples, hotels of every breed and size, eclectic markets, gleaming palaces, ritzy shopping malls, a famous nightlife and the many things in between. Enjoy a memorable dinner cruise adrift the Chao Phraya River. Bask in the city’s warm, affluent glow at a skyscraping rooftop bar. Experience some of the things (tuk-tuk ride, ladyboy show, Muay Thai (kickboxing) match, Thai massage) that everyone always comes home talking about.

There is a restaurant on the ground floor (go out the door and turn left) with good, inexpensive food. Halal food can be found in the food court of the Tesco Lotus just down the street. Most restaurants can make vegetarian food for you, just ask for "a-han jay" (literally "food vegan").

There is no need to contact me to question availability - I keep the calendar very up to date, so you can check there. Ditto for the pricing - simply enter your requested dates of stay and the AirBnB calculator will tell you exactly what the total charges will be.

Unfortunately I am not able to provide a "viewing" or show you the room before the booking unless you plan to be staying for longer than one month. I would refer you to the map of the area, the pictures of the property and my reviews if you have any concerns.

I can arrange a regular maid service or safe, convenient transportation to and from the airport (or elsewhere) on request and at additional charge.

If possible, I would really appreciate it if you did some verifications on your account before booking - it's very easy and AirBnB support is very helpful if you need any assistance with that.

There is a very convenient parking spot available for you if you book for one month or longer.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me and ask. I generally will respond right away if I get your message in the Bangkok daytime.

Thanks again, and I look forward to hosting you!

  • Derek was an amazing host. He was prompt in answering his phone and was really helpful.

    The apartment was exactly as it is shown in the photos. It was clean. The view was also mind blowing from the balcony.

  • We stayed in Derek's apartment when we first moved to Bangkok for a new job. We loved the style and decor. It was very easy to grab a taxi if you don't want to walk to the MRT. Derek (email hidden) and his lovely wife even met us at the airport when we arrived. The city views were lovely as well. It was a great landing place for us!
    The neighborhood gives a very different picture of Bangkok than more touristy areas. We frequented local businesses and had a lovely blessing by a local woman during Songkran.

  • We rented the condo for a week and had a great stay. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was large and had everything we needed. The view was nice. The condo was 5-10 min walk to (email hidden) and a mall. Derek responded quickly and was very accommodating. The door man was very helpful. I would stay there again

  • Excellent stay, didn't actually meet Derek personally but he was VERY quick to answer any questions or queries. Both bedrooms are spacious and every room in the place has an amazing view of pahonyothin road and the elephant tower. Everyone who works at the apartment complex are extremely friendly and helpful, as are all the residents we met.
    Can't wait to go back. Cheers Derek.

  • My family & I stayed at Derek's condo for 4 nights in Dec 2013. It was meant for a family so we found this condo by Derek. With all the great review, we decided on this. It is a spacious condo with good view. We are not too particular about other things or features of the condo as it was meant to be the place (email hidden) after a long day in Bangkok especially after all the traffic woes. So for us, travelling with a family; the shower, air cond and bedding would be the basic needs that i would never expect to have issue.

    Day 1 we discovered the shower not working for master bedroom. Water heater for room 2 also not working. Neither room can have shower properly. Called Derek, but doubts were given that probably we do not know how to operate. Out of desperation, I even help to troubleshoot the heater problem after a long day.

    Sleeping through the midnight, I discovered that the bed is wet at my leg. Wake up and check, realised that water dripping from ceiling air cond. Did not have good sleep first night.

    Day 2, before going out, call Derek to fix all problems before we got back. Again, the first answer was like how could this happen when no one else mentioned this. I wished I know.

    Came back late in the night again, nothing was fixed. Called and then the water heater installer came after 20 minutes to install water heater but not successful. So day 2 without proper shower, water heater & air cond water dripping still to the bed.

    Day 3, I told Derek to fix all problems asap as it was too tiring every night to handle the kids shower problem.
    When back at night, water heater for room 2 fixed. But water heater for master bedroom stop working. I could not believe but it happened.

    Day 4, Derek send people to fix the problem for master bedroom again. Day 4 is the last night stay at Derek's condo and it was the only night we have proper hot water shower & sleep.

    Personally, I think Derek is a reasonable guy though i did not manage to meet him. That could be the main problem as well as no one is there for us when we need help. By the way, there even a blackout on Day 3 after the new water heater installed.

    Derek has made the effort to compensate by refunding less than 1 night stay for the experience we have gone through.

    To us, nothing could buy back the holiday that we planned.

    The condo may looked new but Derek's unit is not maintained well enough during my visit in Dec 2013.

  • Derek's condo was the perfect way to end my three week backpacking trip through Thailand. The apartment is immaculately clean, well designed, and had all the ammenities needed for a comfortable stay - easily the best beds I slept on throughout my entire trip.

    Derek was prompt with his communication and as a tourism professional living in Thailand for 16 years he was great resource.

    Though the property is not in the main tourist area of Thailand it was an amazing experience to be immersed in the day-to-day life of locals. Would recommend to anyone visiting Bangkok.

    December 2013
  • This condo was a great launching pad for us to be able to explore Bangkok for the week that we were there. It's a little bit away from all the touristy areas, and that's what we liked about it.

    Though also walkable, the nearest BTS and MRT stations are a very quick cab ride away (maybe 50 thb one way)...

    There's a restaurant located on the bottom floor of the building, as well as a few places just around the corner from which you can get food. There's also 2 other restaurants in the other 2 buildings in the same complex, though we didn't have a chance to try any food from the other places.

    We loved that we had so much space in the condo, and with 3 adults and one baby, never felt cramped in the space. We'd stay here again next time we visit Bangkok... and we will definitely be back again.

    Be sure to check out Harmony House just 1-2 blocks north (it's just in from the main road, down Soi Phahonyothin 27.That place offers an awesome atmosphere/dining experience and really good Thai food.

  • Derek was very collaborative and flexible and condo is really great. You should see the view from the big window on the 31 floor, especially by night!

    September 2013
  • Derek was very helpful every step of the way, when we arrived at the complex everything went smoothly. The apartment is newly renovated and very nice. There were a few minor glitches in our stay that he was quick to fix. I'd recommend staying at his apartment.
