    KV Mansion, Sukhumvit 81, 400m from On Nut BTS

    www.kvmansion.com



    This is still getting the final touches to it, it looks nice and will be ready within a couple of months.

    The rooms are 8000 Baht and 16000 Baht.

    The site is in Thai but the pictures are good.

    There's definitely room in the market for people looking to pay about 10,000 for somewhere well located and comfortable, I reckon.

    The 20,000 up market has to be saturated, surely? maybe literally with a bleedin plunge pool for every apartment.

    I'm looking for a house somewhere in the burbs but no idea where to look.

    Can anyone read Thai enough to find out if they rent rooms by the month? Or is it a minimum 6 month lease?

    Looks very nice and close to the BTS too

    I would imagine it's six months minimum. I know of no decent place that would do a month by month deal.

    Went out there a couple of weeks ago. It's alright, but all the rooms open out on to a covered central atrium with not a sound absorbing surface in sight. You'll hear every wind door slam, stereo, and conversation in the entire building, not just your floor.

    Speaking of doors, they did seem to be of decent quality. Better than your average Thai apartment. High ceilings as well. The demo units looked quite nice, though I think 16k is a bit steep for the double (2 x 30 sqm rooms with a door between). No direct line _allowed_. Or so said the salesman. Perhaps that could be worked out. Not going to play with the building LAN, which (as usual) is a single '1mbs' line shared throughout the whole building.

    As for the walk to the BTS, it's better to think of it as nearly half a kilometer rather than '400 meters'. That gives you a better sense of it. For the first 100 meters or so there is no sidewalk (or even a scrabbly little ditch thingy that might suffice as one), so you're literally walking in the street.

    Most of the rooms around that area in that approximate price range suck, a fact which makes KV almost look OK by comparison. I think if it didn't have the central atrium 'thunder dome' layout, I'd have mulled it over.

    Has your friend found anything decent yet?

    Dunno which burb, but if you find an online resource with lots of good listings, let me know. Pretty much the only technique I've hit upon is to pick an area and then drive up and down sois looking for signs on gates and asking random people.

    It doesn't mention it. It does say that they opened for reservations from 15th December and people can move in from the 1st March this year.

    I went out and had a look last weekend and am still mulling, my major quibble being the lack of kitchen facilities.

    I was told that the minimum period of lease is six months. This means that anyone who moves out after staying less than six months will lose their (one month) deposit

    Hmmm... 8000 deposit plus one months rent (8000) = 16,000 baht

    That still works out cheaper than staying in a hotel for a month

    Too many liveable apartments off of Suk ruined this way. Forget it!

    Depends on which hotel!

    I always think the best time of year to look for an apartment is the rainy season. At least you won't be in for any surprises regarding the flood factor.

    That hollow in the road that looks all dry and dusty now can have you wading home in knee-deep floodwater six months down the line.

    And you can bet your boots that if you ask the girl showing you around if the soi floods during the rainy season, she'll respond "sometimes (pause) a little bit (pause) but go down very quickly"
    Cometh the rainy season you'll be shouting for her to toss you a lifebelt.
    The worst job in Thailand must be the man who has to sit down with a blue marker pen and mark a number two on the two-baht coins to stop people thinking they are one-baht coins.
