There are 2 bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom. The main bathroom is off the living areas.

The apartment is on the 15th floor, so has good views and heaps of fresh air and great breezes.

Taxis are always available and there is a bus stop close by.
There are also a number of shops in the complex including convenience stores, small restaurant and the Russian Market.

A Vietnamese friend of mine in HCMC (Tuan) will try to meet you at check-in time or some other time if he is available. He can tell you more about life in HCMC.
Interaction with Guests
I don't interact with guests (except for emails/texting) because I am normally in Sydney, but my friend Tuan will be available if needed.
I will provide guests with email and various SMS texting options for communicating with me.
There is also an extensive House Manual which provides instructions on how everything works, what to do if there are any problems, etc.
It is close enough to the CBD for business or high end shopping, but far enough away to avoid the hustle & bustle (and higher prices).
The local street market (every morning) is only 2 minutes walk away and has everything you need to live (and so cheap).
In the evenings, the local area transforms into a good range of restaurants.
The back packer area and Ben Thanh market are less than 10 minutes walk away.
Reliable taxis (Mai Linh & Vina Sun) are available at the bottom of the apartment building all day, with permanent staff from both companies to give advice if needed).
There is also a local bus stop adjacent the building.
If you have your own car or motorbike, there is secure parking in the basement.
Other Things to Note
I'm an Aussie guy living partly in Sydney, and partly in Ho Chi Minh City. While I'm in Sydney, the apartment is available to rent.
Fire extinguishers (maintained by building management) are located on the common corridor wall a few meters from the apartment door.
Keep the place clean.
No smoking inside (but there is a small outdoor balcony).
Turn off the air-conditioning and lights when you go out.
The House Manual (available after booking confirmation) will provide full information about the apartment and how everything works.
