The Russian Market District is the most dynamic neighborhood in Phnom Penh. Here the street-scape changes daily - it is amazing how this district is progressing from one day to the next. The residents here are both local and international in just the right mix to make for a wonderful culturally enriching experience.
Phnom Penh recently initiated a city wide bus service, however tuktuks are the transit vehicle of choice for most visitors (and for many residents as well).
* Our 6 simple common sense rules - below
Cambodia is an intriguing place with many exotic dimensions! As one famous ambassador who served Cambodia for many years was recently heard saying "Cambodia is a challenging place to visit you will fall in love with it and then it will break your heart".
Our common sense rules :)
1) No smoking in-doors (outside on the balconies is fine)
2) No loud music after 10 pm
3) Be careful and lawful - this is Cambodia!
4) Follow simple security instructions upon entering and exiting the property
5) Only registered guests are allowed inside the premises unless previous permission from host is attained.
6) Turn off lights and air-conditioners when not in use.
James and his family did their utter best to make us feel at home. They are always up for a chat and asked us how we were doing, if we liked Phnom Penh and if we came short of something.
The apartment is very neat and spacious. We particularly liked the rooftop terrace, at night a welcoming breeze runs over this place. The house is very safe and is located in a good neighborhood next to Russian Market.
Next time in Phnom Penh we will definitely give James a call. He's opening a restaurant too and promised us to make us some wood-oven pizza!
Lovely place in a lovely neighbourhood. James was a great host.
Living in this apartment was a joy. It's very spacious and you have absolute privacy. And the cleanest place I have ever seen (so far) in Asia. Also very important: it's very cool, which is not easy to manage in Cambodia's climate. The neighbourhood is not so close to the Riverside, but honestly, who wants to spend valuable time over there. Everything you need is just a couple meters away; fine restaurants, big (super)markets and a real Cambodian experience. James and Maria are very helpful and open minded. They are very interesting people who like a good conversation. They made us feel at home and I'm very greatful for that.
nous avons très bien été reçu par James et son épouse qui sont disponibles pour vous aider dans votre quotidien, l'appartement est très spacieux et très agréable dans lequel nous avons passé un agréable séjour et est très bien situé pour l'ensemble des visites.
James informed us the ground floor apartment was available, so we stayed there instead. This worked really well for us as we have a two year old. As before a very pleasant stay.
James was everything you need : affable, flexible, available and responsive.
We stayed in a third-floor (top) flat and if returning, I'd put up with the climb and ask to stay there again!
The flat was roomy, clean comfortable and as described. It's not equipped for the would-be self caterer, but the essentials for basic catering needs are all there.
This was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to get a real feel for life in Phnom Penh, rather than just be a tourist. It's a big apartment near Russian Market. Furnishing is and kitchen facilities are pretty basic, but sufficient. Wifi is standard Phnom Penh, comes and goes, but good speed. The stairs to the 2nd and 3rd floor are quite steep. Good exercise but not for he faint of heart.
James and Maria are excellent hosts. They responded promptly when we needed things and took care of a problem with the a/c. All in all a good deal. A hotel room at this price would be small and/or seedy.

About the Host, James
I am the guy taking the picture and I am a very lucky man because I have been married to my beautiful wife for the past 13 years. Together Maria and I have three exceptional daughters. Between us all, we speak English, Russian and Chinese.
Both Maria and I are educators; we taught for the past dozen years in Oceania and Asia - 5 years in Micronesia, 5 years in China and the past 3 right here in sunny Cambodia. I am American from Denver, Maria is Russian from Vladivostok and our unique and talented daughters are true third culture children from lots of places.
Our main focus with our 5 spacious apartments is to provide no-nonsense Western style guest accommodations and services for friendly and value savvy world travelers (like you). We strive to improve things as we go and are looking forward to open our new restaurant (Jul 2015) with special discounts offered exclusively to our Airbnb Guests.
Thanks for reading and we wish you all the best now and in your future travels :)
