Wendy and her husband was helpful, room is clean. I lost my watch and they are being very helpful to help me look for my watch, by the way, I found it at last, it was in my luggage hahaha!! thank you so much for your help! I will definitely rent your house if I come to Seoul again!
I was a bit worried when there was suddenly some negative feedback but I will say my stay is good. Apartment was near to metro and some convenient shop ard. The instructions book was also clear enough. Wendy allowed me to check in early and it was very grateful for that. There was a small incident when I was napping due to the night flight and didn't lock the door so the Auntie open the door and startled me. But she left immediately and came back later to knock as she need to take something. The Auntie will also collect the rubbish daily but sometimes when I left early, she didn't collect. But I msg Wendy abt it and the rubbish were cleared immediately. There is a window which was jammed and cause some cold air to flow in which I had informed Wendy as she might want to fixed it in case winter comes. The apartment is quite standard and I do recommend that the guest communicate well with the host if you have any enquiries. Wendy is always quick to answer any enquires. I had asked for a large towel as there was plenty of review and dun really wan to trouble her when I reach, so she did provide one as I was a solo traveller. Overall, I would recommend to stay here but don't really expect hotel service.
Both my husband & I were very disappointed in our accommodations. Nothing was properly explained to us especially the fact that when we went out the hot water was turned off. We had no choice but to ask the people in the office downstairs for their assistance, otherwise we would not have had any hot water at all. We had two queen beds, one bed was bare, it had a bottom sheet only and no comforter, the other had a comforter. Both beds were hard as nails. We had one glass, two small plates and a few pieces of cutlery. Also we stayed in these apartments for 11 days and we never got clean towels at all. The only help we had was a lady that took out the garbage. We will not be staying here again.
There is English guide book in the room, which include all the instruction for the amenities,such as hot water , wash machine and wifi,etc, As a vacation rental, we don't provide house keeping during the stay as most other hosts do, so our guest could use our wash machine whenever they need ( we also state it in our house manual). About the setting of the bedding, we also stated in the guide book.There are two beds in the room, and we usually set one bed for two guests, and the second bed is for 3rd or 4th guest, but this time there were only 2 guests stayed at our place, that is why they thought one bed is not properly setting. .BTW we suggest our future guest contact us if they encounter any problem or question, because we think misunderstanding the host without any communication is not a good idea, thank you ~
Great place to stay!! Feels like stay at my own place :D the host also very kind :D
I just had my stay in this unit last week in Seoul for 4 days. The room is spacious, tidy and the toilet is clean. The unit is quite close to the Sangwangsimni train station (5 mins walk).
However, there is a little comment as the aircon in my room is not working well as its keeps at the temperature of 30 degree. To open the window, its quite noisy. We have already inform the owner but not with very prompt reply.
Another thing about the towel. We have requested for 1 more towel and it takes 2 days to come which is fairly dissappointed. I must said that the price quoted is not very far from the hotel in Dongdaemon (different by SGD 30). I guess I will rather top up for a hotel stay.
Wendy and her husband Mook were exceptionally accommodating during my stay in Seoul. Whenever I had a question or needed more towels and blankets, they always went out of their way to help me and make me feel welcome. Notably, when I needed to dry clean something at the last minute, they were quick to provide me with a recommendation that was right across the street from where I was staying. Their place in Dongdaemun was cozy and conveniently located right next to a convenience store, a subway station, and E-mart for any last-minute necessities.

About the Host, Wendy
In my spare time,I like traveling a lot, but it really takes me tough and long time to choose an economical but suitable accomodation in other countries.Although some guests prefer 5 stars hotel, this kind of vacation rental also has its own advantages.
In the year of 2011, there were over 10 million tourists come to Korea, majory of them had wonderful experience in Seoul, expecially because the friendly service and high quality of products.
We hope all the guests when they come to Korea, they don't feel complicated or diffcult to find a nice place to stay. As an honest and friendly host, we want to provide best service for our guests with most competitive and reasonable price. We would like to introduce attractions and restaurants in Seoul, help you out to make the itinerary.
Hope you will have a wonderful and unforgetable memory of our house when you travel in Seoul!
