I love the bright natural light that pours in through the large windows. The balcony is awesome also with a great view of the central mountain in Seoul with the Seoul Tower - it looks like it is just a stone's throw away. Close to the center of the city. Very trendy area. For female only.

The #03 bus is close and will take you to the nearest subway stations (Noksapyeong Station and Samgugji Station) in 10 minutes. You can see the 03 green shuttle bus on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) earth. Just type in "Grand Hyatt Seoul Hotel" and go to 'street level' at the front of the hotel. Other buses will take you into any of the major areas of the city within about 15-25 minutes.
Two buses go into the city center (10 minutes away) 402 & 405 buses from Grand Hyatt Hotel.

The apartment building is very secure with entrance password activated and a password for my apartment (no key is needed).
The apartment is warm, clean, safe, comfortable and fairly quiet. There is a lot of natural light and fast internet connection, central heating and air conditioning is included.

We live in a very trendy area. much sought after. There are many nice restaurants and bars, two micro-breweries and supermarkets are within easy walking distance. We are within a 5-minute taxi drive or a 15-20 minute walk from Itaewon.

No pets, No smoking please.

Guest access

The whole apartment is available to you (except the other two tenant's rooms, of course). The other tenants are female so they prefer female only.

Interaction with guests

The two young ladies living in the other two rooms are lovely, nice, considerate and very friendly. We run a quiet apartment - great for student, intern, worker or tourist.

Other things to note

We don't have any wild parties, but we enjoy chatting in the living room over a glass of wine or cup of your favorite beverage.

Jeff is a great host. The house is very well managed and clean. Even when I arrived late due to a slight delay of my flight, he asked his friend to pick me up at Itaewon station. It's a 10 minutes walk from Noksapyeong Metro station and there are many cafes, bars and shops nearby. There's also a convenience store and 7 eleven which made buying of necessities easy. Overall experience is great=)

Response from Jeff:
It was a pleasure to have Delwin with us, he was a polite and respectful guest throughout his time with us. Just for the record: there is no dust in my apartment. I keep the rooms very clean and thoroughly clean them after each guest. I wash all bedding in hot water. Regarding the feathers: I provide the very best and warmest bed covers, which means the most expensive and highest-quality items, which are duck down and goose down covers not synthetic material. Anyone who has these high-quality covers will concur that occasionally a feather or two will come out of the cover, which is normal and not really a problem. I also have suffered from mild asthma but have had no problem in this apartment. Please rest assured that all rooms are cleaned after each guest and have no dust.

Jeff is a great host, very helpful and kind. He took his time to show me around the neighborhood and is always ready to help. The apartment is bright, cozy and warm in winter, with a great view of Namsan Tower. The central location in the city is great as a trip to any part of Seoul doesn't take more than 40min and Itaewon is just a 10min walk away. The neighborhood is lively with many international bars and restaurants around, but the area around the apartment itself is quiet and calm. Great stay, I would really recommend staying here.

Jeff's apartment is just perfect - great location in Itaewon and close to all the major sites. The apartment is spacious, clean and cozy, really warm in the fall and pleasant in the summer. The room is great, enough space and a desk to work as well as a hair dryer and other stuff. Of course, the highlight of the apartment is Jeff himself - he's a great host who frequently cooks dinner, introduced me to his friends and showed me around the city. All in all, this place is probably one of the best in Seoul, I wish I could stay there again!

My stay at this apartment was incredible. The bedroom was a nice size and the bed was super comfy. The location is in a quiet part of Itaewon, which is a bustling foreign section in Seoul. The cuisine and atmosphere was perfect! The roommates couldn't be nicer. I enjoyed my stay and received a lot of helpful information. Might be coming back very soon.

Although I did not get to meet Jeff in person, he let me use his own room and I enjoyed staying his place. The other two roommates were also very nice that they picked me up at a hotel that is close to the house.

I am an Australian living in Seoul, South Korea. I am an English language teacher at a university in Seoul. Also - a post-grad (distance) student at a university in L.A. California.
The tenant in the other room is also a teacher and a student, so we are generally quiet studying in our rooms at night. We do not have a TV, but this is a trendy area with many coffee shops, bars and restaurants, and shopping, so there is plenty to do.
With my studies these days I don't have much spare time, but if I do I like to hang out with friends or paint - contemporary landscape oil paintings.
Five things I can't live without: My motorbike, my Eerdinger, my Bible, YouTube and friends.
I enjoy movies, my iPod, my philosophy books, Bob Dylan, but I can live without them.
I enjoy meeting people from different countries and sharing experiences.
My favorite author is C.S.Lewis. My favorite Lewis quote is: "God whispers to us in our joys, speaks to us in our conscience and shouts to us in our pain."
I love travelling and making friends.
I hope you will have an enjoyable and comfortable memory of your stay in this apartment.
