About this listing
Our home stay guest room comfortably sleeps 2-4 people. There are two single beds, air con, and free wifi. The bathroom (not attached) has hot water.
Some attractions that are walking distance to us are - the Palace, Mandalay hill, world's biggest book, and a traditional silk weaving center. Our street is just a 5 min walk from the main street which has convenient stores, local markets and restaurants, beer stations and ticket booths for purchasing bus tickets. We rent motorbikes and scooters.
Our home is located in a quiet, local, residential area. We hope to give our guest a small taste of what it would be like living in Myanmar.
Access to the balcony if you want to see the sunrise/sunset, or to have drinks in the evening.
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).
Our motorcycle rental shop, Myanmar Bike Rental, has an excellent selection of off road motorbikes, easy riders, step through motorbikes, and automatic scooters . Good for short term rentals just in Mandalay city, or for longer rentals for traveling around Myanmar - renting a motorbike really makes getting around easier, cheaper and more convenient.
If you're unable to ride yourself, you can also hire a motorbike taxi or a private cab for half or full day tours around Mandalay.
We are between two main roads and so getting a taxi or motorbike taxi is fairly easy, or we can call in a taxi.
Other Things to Note
We aren't a commercial guest house. This listing is in our private home.
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 stay out no later then 11:00 PM.
Myanmar is still quite a conservative country, so guests should be decently dressed (not in underwear or shirtless) when in public areas.
