Bangkok, Thailand

General description

  • Main home
Ours is a three-story townhouse with a small yard. We completely renovated the interior and moved there in July of 2018. The kitchen is well-equipped with new appliances. There are three bathrooms and one master bedroom. The house has high ceilings with lots of windows. Air conditioning is only in the bedroom (but we have lots of fans!). Our townhouse is situated in a busy, working-class neighborhood, near a busy street. Our house is close enough to the street for convenient access to transportation, but far enough away to be generally quiet. It is near many urban conveniences, including a terminal station for the "sky train," a large Thai fresh market, a newly opened mini-grocery store (70 meters away), and a shopping mall. Our neighborhood is very urban and very Thai. We like it, perhaps you will to.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Animals with specific needs
  • Many plants
  • 4 cats
  • Rodents
  • Fish
We have four indoor house cats. They all like people, but one does not get along with two others, so there is a bit of management and care required to avoid conflicts. They are all healthy and happy, although one has asthma and requires daily treatments with an inhaler. We also have two "free range" rabbits, and one large aquarium. We would expect house-sitters to feed and water our pets, cleaning up after them when necessary. The rabbits simply need to be fed, and their "poop tray" cleaned every few days. The fish just require feeding twice a day. Our plants and garden will need watering as needed, but there are no gardening tasks beyond that.

The inside of our townhouse is a refuge from the activity outside. Our place would be suitable for people seeking an authentic, daily-life Bangkok experience, with the opportunity to live in a well designed and quite convenient living space. Staying at our place is for people who enjoy bustling city living, with a bit of an adventurous edge. The main street is about 25 meters away, and is extremely busy, especially with motorbike traffic. The street can be pretty hectic, so please consider this before choosing this house sit.

Comfort and Luxury

  • 3 floors
  • 5 rooms of which one bedroom
  • Contemporary
  • Television / DVD library
  • Book library
  • Air conditioning
  • Fitted kitchen
  • Sauna / Jacuzzi
  • Sports equipment
Our kitchen is very well equipped, for those who love to cook. Also, our back patio is a mini gym, with a new elliptical machine, a power rack, bench, and free weights (olympic barbell, dumbells). We’ve got a lot of books, and a Roland digital piano for the musically minded. There is an infrared sauna available, if Bangkok isn't hot enough already for you.

Tourism and Leisure

  • City
  • Museum
  • Cinema
Due to our proximity to the sky train (metro), pretty much all of Bangkok is easily accessible. Additionally, nearby are some cool local attractions, like the Ancient City and the Erawon Museum. Of course, Bangkok is a very vibrant city loaded with food, shopping, and all sorts of cultural experiences.
