Ads: A cozy and furnished apartment for rent in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Situated in a strategic and safe location, at the crossroads between Street 51 (Rue Pasteur) and Street 360, this unit on the 4th floor is available for rent starting 1 August 2009.

This area, known as Boeung Keng Kang I (BKKI), is quiet, clean and perhaps also one of the best locations in the city. The apartment is literally within walking distance from essential amenities such as international school, the Somaly Raffles Health Clinic, Agrovet (veterinarian clinic), BKK market and a 24-hour convenience store. The SOS International Clinic is situated about 10 minutes away.

Being a hub for many embassies, international NGOs such as the UN and Save the Children, the area is safe and peaceful. It is particularly strategic for those who are working for one of these organizations.

Surrounding the apartment are spas, international and local restaurants, bars and cafes; Le Cedre, Bai Tong, Cafe Fresco, Gasolina and The Living Room, to name a few. Since it’s essentially a residential area, business-owners are mindful and sensitive with the noise level.

There are tuks-tuks stationed permanently just outside the apartment which makes public transportation easily accessible. It takes only 10 minutes by tuks-tuks to Lucky Supermarket, a well-stocked supermarket selling products which you don’t necessarily find in the local market.

Finally, with lots of windows and the advantage of being on the 4th floor, you get a good amount of light and breeze in the apartment. The sunset is particularly breathtaking.

Below are some of the features of the apartment:

  • 4th floor with low density (2 units per floor, maximum 5 floors).
  • Elevator and stairs; with security access card to elevator.
  • 2 large bedrooms; 1 with attached bathroom with bathtub.
