James was a great host and the apartment was just as described. The area is pretty nice and has a lot of restaurants as well as easy access to the riverfront and scenic areas of the city. Would gladly stay again!
We had a wonderful stay st James place in Phnom Penh. The apartment is in safe area and there is everything you need. James also took us around neighborhood and he was prompt to answer our questions. Thanks again everything was great :)
James' apartment was great, spacious and the location was really wonderful. It is close to the 'Russian' market so lots of nice local street food and shopping. James was a wonderful host and I found the apartment to be clean and he had some lovely recommendations.
I have just finished a one month stay in James's a Phnom Penh apartment whilst volunteering with an NGO, and enjoyed it very much. James is a fantastic, friendly host and goes out of his way to be helpful. If there are any problems arising, he will bend over backwards to solve them and he ensures that the apartment supplies are topped up immediately upon request.
He is very helpful in orienting his guests to the area, providing hints about places to shop and eat. The apartment is very clean, spacious and equipped with everything you need.
The Toul Tom Pong (Russian market) area is fantastic. Lots of great restaurants, coffee shops, mini markets and of course the Russian market itself in walking distance.The street is relatively quiet and the area is generally pretty safe to walk around in the evening. If you dont want to walk, there is no shortage of tuk tuks and motos.
Thanks for a great stay James and you owe me that Pizza next time :)
Staying in James' flat is always a pleasure. Nice, quiet residential neighbourhood, but with plenty of good cafés and restaurants in the vicinity. You never feel like a tourist, more like an expat.
The flat itself is spacious and feels homely. All you need is provided, ac and wifi working well. Good value, hope to be back
We spent a couple of weeks at the apartment of James, and enjoyed our stay there. The flat is clean, roomy, and well situated. The Russian market is only a few minutes walk away, two supermarkets nearby and some nice places around where to have a bite and a drink. The air-co works perfectly. Wifi is stable. James is a dedicated host, friendly and always reachable. If you have a problem, he solves it in a jiffy. He also makes tasty pizzas. We enjoyed the treat and the evening with his family. If you go to Phnom Penh, for a few days or a few weeks, book with James. You'll be happy about it.
We called the hosts on our way from the airport and James and Maria were at the apartment to welcome us when we arrived.
Good sized 2 bedroom plus a bed in the living room as described. Apartment is basic but has everything we needed.
Location is good - Russian Market and some shops and restaurants nearby. Especially Joma if you want your western style cafe fix.
All in all a useful apartment for a good price.

I am a family man with wife and three young daughters (ages 12 and under). We speak English, Russian and Chinese. Both Maria and I are educators and currently work at a wonderful international school here. I am from Colorado and Maria is from Vladivostok. Over the past dozen years we have lived in Ireland, the USA, China, Micronesia and now Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Phnom Penh is an intriguing city which we enjoy living in. We like helping others learn about this region.
