Access to our kitchen where your are welcomed to have coffee, cook, or use the fridge. Access to our sitting room to watch TV or just to chill.
Interaction with Guests
We're always around in the day as me and my husband run a small English school in the same property, so early morning/late night check ins or check outs are no problem. We're always free to chat in the mornings before work or to talk over drinks in the evening.
It's a residential area which is quiet and quite secure. It's about a 5 min walk down our small street to the main road where there are plenty of small local shops and restaurants. The restaurants on 19th street are very diverse, from BBQ and draft beer, to traditional Myanmar curries, to an air-conditioned Thai restaurant. There is also a modern super market and an authentic local market, which is about a 20 min walk from us. It also easy to by bus tickets to go to Bagan and Yangon on this street (19th St).
We have a motorcycle rental shop where we have a wide selection of off road motorbikes, easy riders, step through bikes, scooters and a Shimano mountain bicycle for rent . Either for short rentals, just in Mandalay city, or for longer periods of time for those who want to discover the rest of the country on their own.
If you're unable to ride yourself, you can also hire a motorbike taxi or a private cab for half or full day from 20,000-50,000MMK.
We are between two main roads and so getting a taxi or motorbike taxi is fairly easy, or we can call in a taxi.
The airport is 45 min away from town and by Mandalay standards, this is really far, so most taxis charge around 20,000 MMK ($20) for an airport pick up.
Since both me and my husband work 7 days a week and are up early every morning, we'd kindly like to request that guests don't stay out until the early hours of the morning but return in the evening at a decent hour.
Myanmar is still quite a conservative country, so we would like to request that guests be decently dressed (not in underwear or shirtless) when in public areas.
