Large bedroom with en-suite bathroom in large villa. Room is air conditioned and has wireless internet. We have daily maid service. The Touk Kork Market is right down the street and Western and Khmer restaurants nearby. You have the use of two fully equipped kitchens and a great rooftop terrace to relax after a long day sightseeing. There isn't any public transportation but Tut Tut drivers at the end of the street to take you to where ever you would want to go.
We had a short but nice stay at Cheryl's place. She was waiting for us on arrival and had her driver get some bottled water for the room,which is very nice when arriving from a long trip. We had to leave early the next morning and she managed this very well even though she wasn't on site. The drawback would be the darkness of the room, with a view on a wall. We found that the location was not a problem with all the tuktuk in the streets and for dinner we found a great BBQ place next door and loved it !
This room will work well for those that have a bit more time in Phnom Penh and want to spend some time away from the more touristy areas of the capital. The house is located on a quiet residential street with a large local market nearby. The area is also a hub for Cambodian BBQ restaurants. It's unlikely that you will see foreigners.
I personally liked the neighborhood. While I was there there was a 3 day wedding taking place next door. I was invited inside while I walked past and witnessed something fairly rare for short term visitors to the country to experience. I was also able to play checkers with a sweet old man in a small cafe and speak with a local music association down the street.
There were some small problems that occurred in the house while I was there (broken locks, e.g.), but Cheryl was attentive and quick to remedy them. She's best reached by phone.
The room is pretty basic, but it was clean. I received an entire 5 gallon container of water when I checked in, which was quite nice to have actually. I did wish the two windows permitted a view other than the walls of the neighboring buildings and allowed more light into it. But it just provides more incentive to walk or bike around and explore the area. There's also a kitchen available in the house if you want to do some basic cooking. There's a nice balcony, but I found that between the heat, noise, mosquitos, and lack of electricity, wifi, or company, it wasn't a place that I wanted to ever sit for too long.
Wifi in the room was excellent though. As was the AC.
So in the end, I would say that if you have only two days in the capital, this probably isn't the place for you because it's further away from all of the tourist sites than most accommodation options. However, if you have some more time and you want to explore an interesting little neighborhood away from the hubbub, this might work well for you.
We had a nice, short stay. There is a large supply of bottled water in the room, which is nice to have. A bit far from city center, but you can hire a motorbike or tuk-tuk for $2 - $3 USD to city center (one way). There are restaurants nearby and you can even have some street food for less than $1 USD. Fast and reliable WiFi! Thank you. :)
Great value for this spacious, quiet, clean room in a lovely house with all conveniences in Tuol Kork. Cheryl is a fantastic host who really puts your comfort first and is quick to react ot any inquiries, needs or wishes you may have. Phnom Penh doesn't get any better than this!
We rented a room from Cheryl for 3 nights. Cheryl rents out rooms to teachers working in Phnom Penh. She does not live in the house herself. The house is 10-15 min. by tuk-tuk from the center (2-3 dollar). We did not see other people living in the same building.
The neighborhood is quiet, a lot of villa's and expats. There are a couple of Western places (Blue Pumpkin, Shop Too), a small market and plenty of places to eat Khmer food. Other than that, there is not much to do.
The room was clean and comfortable. Private bathroom with (luke)warm shower. Two windows with view on walls, so request a room with a view if you want one. Cheryl kindly let us use her washing machine and washing powder.
Our impression is: fine room, Cheryl is friendly, but the house and area lack atmosphere.
We had a good stay at Cheryls home in Phnom Penh. The room was clean and has a good bed and shower. Also Cheryl is realy friendly and helpfull. Room is 15 min from city center in a quiet area.
I'll stay with Cheryl was simply perfect! A beautiful apartment in a lovely quiet region of Phnom Penh, the room was perfect and Cheryl is an absolutely lovely lady Who immediately made us feel at home with her warm welcome and wonderful hospitality! A very special stay indeed and when next in Phnom Penh we would love to return! Thank you Cheryl!!
