5. Family Info

I live in Bangbae-dong with my family. My wife is an amateur Korean painter, my son is a college student, and my daughter is an architectural designer who works in the U.S.
Since each unit of MeeWooVille is a separate studio, there will not be many chances to see my family around, but if needed, we will be there to help you. Also since my son can speak Chinese, if needed, just ask to communicate with him for your convenience.

  • First of all David is a great guy! He is a very helpful and kind person. He helped me with my questions and gave a lot of advices about Seoul. The room is perfect as well. You will find everything you need as a traveller, and even more. Everything (washing mashine, TV, bathroom, bed etc.) is brand new. But the most important thing is that the room (and the rest of the building) is perfectly clean. I will totally stay at Davids apartment the next time I visit Seoul!

  • David was extremely responsive and helpful. He replied almost immediately to prep emails and also picked us up in the chilly Seoul weather. By sheer coincidence he was there at the building when we left and also dropped us back to hotel for airport bus. Location is very walkable although back streets got a bit confusing (the place is between3 metro stations). He even prepared an iron for us and the balcony was nice to hang dry towels. Internet and TV were so easy and tons of storage closets. The bathroom was pretty good also. Minor comments were the towels could have been bigger/nicer and there were no bowls, dish sponge or paper towels. But we Highly recommend!

  • This flat was so clean & convinient!, Small garden that full of host's touch & taste is beautiful. Above all, David has very delicacy with which he treated ours. for a month or more we were happy in his house.

  • It is not easy to find affordable places in Seoul when you want to stay more than just few days. This place is a very good compromise.
    The house is close to Gangnam but far enough to be quiet. Metro station is 10 minutes distance by walking. The flat itself is very clean and well equiped. David has welcomed me very well and always keen to help. I will probably come back here next time I am in Seoul.

  • David was a great host he picked me up and and dropped me off at the end of my trip at the bus station on my first day he took time to show me the place around the apartment the nearest coffee shop, laundry and the way to the station ....
    the apartment was clean and has everything you would need for a short trip

  • I think the other reviews said it all. David is very helpful and the apartment is very well located and comfortable. We got lost trying to come back one night because we forgot to bring the address with us. It was entirely our fault but when we called David from a nearby hotel he got the hotel to print a map for us and then he called us later to make sure we had got back safely.

  • Everything about the place was great. It was a convenient location and safe. The unit was just like the pictures and clean. David was very nice and willing to help out with any questions we had. He came and picked us up where the KAL bus from the airport dropped us off which was really helpful. We'll definitely stay here again in the future.

  • David was an extraordinary host and my stay could not have been more easy and pleasant in this immaculate apartment in Yeoksam Dong. It is true that he is so accommodating! He will come and pick you up from the bus stop and escort you to the apartment, and escort you back to the bus stop on your way out of Seoul.

    Everyday, I awoke to sounds of birds chirping in the quiet, tree-lined street outside the window- the silence is astonishing as the apartment is literally located in the heart of Gangnam. I walked to Gangnam, Yeoksam and Samsung station everyday! 5 min bus ride to Apgujeong station, and 10 min bus ride to Hannam dong as well.

    I cooked during my stay and had most of the needed cooking appliances. The bed, sofa, tv, and especially the bathroom were all perfect. Never been in a cleaner, more pleasant place in all my travels, and I do travel a lot for a living!

    I almost want to keep this place a secret, but David deserves the highest praise for being the best host. Air Bnb should give out a host of the year award to David!

    Thank you so much again, David! and will most definitely be back.

    June 2012
  • Great place to stay! Will definitely book again if I return to Seoul. David is a superb host! Directions and communication before arrival were a big help. Picked up/and drop off from the bus station was very convenient. Apartment was very clean will all the necessities, supermarket close by and in a great location to explore the city.

  • Having stayed at several hostels and b&bs across the globe. I would confidently say that David's place is the best i've been to.

    He was incredibly friendly and helpful. Because our flight was delayed and i couldn't contact him, he went round and round the block looking for us in his car for an hour. Other then that, David provided us with helpful information on Seoul over coffee and even helped us carry our luggages when we left.

    His place was in a very quiet and pleasant area, easily accessible to the metro and surrounded by eateries and cafes. The apartment was exactly like the picture in the description. Flooded with natural sunlight, extremely clean and well equip.

    There's 2 things i really love about Seoul. Firstly, it's Korean food. Secondly, it's David. I would recommend anyone going to Seoul to stay at David's apartment. You won't regret it.
