Hi I'm 34 year-old professional female who has a house to share in Sriracha (20 km. from Pattaya). Only female roommate preferred - the reason is that I see it's quite daunting for lady expats who first come to Thailand. I can be your roommate and I also would like to help you settle down. I can give you a ride to anywhere nearby, just help me with some petrol fee.
I am a calm, friendly, easy going, and neat person and without being fanatical about it I do like to keep things pretty tidy and clean.
Most of the time I stay home as my job is writing. I need a peaceful and quiet place so parties and overnight staying friends are not allowed.
The house is air conditioned. The available bedroom has a small sized bed, a wardrobe with double mirror doors, a TV set, and computer desk. I have a dog, so you must be a pet lover.
Location of the house
12 kilometres from Laem Chabang industrial estate
16 kilometres from Unithai Shipyard
20 kilometres from Eastern Seaboard
23 kilometries from Bang Saen
5 kilometres from Saha Group Industrial Park
5 km. from Pinthong Industrial Estate
5 km. from Sriracha down town. 25 km from Pattaya. 1 km. from Motorway no. 7 – very convenient to Bangkok, 50 minutes to Suwanabhumi Airport
Rental – 3,000 baht per week (a big bedroom with king-sized bed 3200 baht a week), 2 wks advanced payment; bills not over 200 bht a week if you don't turn on air-conditioning all day. Free internet (it’s down quite often though, but good enough for email checking.)
Again this really suits a newbie to Thailand. You can start from here, and I don’t mind if you want to move out the next month.
It all seems rather expensive, Angela.
I'd look again at those figures. You're asking a lot of money for a room in a shared house (with temperamental internet, no overnight friends etc.)
They'd have to be a newbie, now wouldn't they?
"Take this, brother; may it serve you well."
12,000 baht a month for a shared house in Si Racha? Wow!
Seems damned expensive.
If you rent out both rooms, imagining that you only have the two extra bedrooms, you'll be pulling in 25,000 baht.
This is house "sharing"?
If any 'newbie' (or whatever the latest infantile nomenclature may be) reads this ad... don't touch this 'offer' with a barge-pole. It's precisely this type of westerner that you'll become aware of pretty quickly here; the 'something for nothing' brigade.
12k a month my arse. Fuck you and your donkey.

she didn't mention the donkey. might be worth considering.
Does the "lucky" roomie get to have an African man servant or is this one of the "you pay the rent (4 me) and shut the f-up' kinda deals? Donkey show? Ti-u-juana- do you want to take your mother to the ...

Living with Angela
"Oh the bloody dog has chewed up your new Reeboks. She's such a devil isn't she"
"Could you turn the music down a notch, I'm trying to write"
"I don't want to make a big thing of it but could you make sure the hand towels go back on the rail immediately after use"
"Yes, I can give you a lift into Pattaya. Could you just pass me the calculator. So that's 22 baht a litre multiplied by........"
"Who was that man you brought home last night? He did smell rather unwashed"
"The internet should be back up in a day or two"
"Oh by the way. It's the end of the month. That'll be 14,167 baht please"
"Living with Angela was OK at first...but I just prefer it this way"
as with any property, the key to finding the right place is location, location, location. Now, it may seem a tad pricey, but don't forget the advantages of living within 20km of 3 industial estates and 2 shipyards. With this sort of nightlife its proximity to pattaya could be overlooked.
Gee ange to the Fl...that's great...being a total newb to Thailand those landmarks have really pin pointed the locale for me...it just so happens that I've a love for industrial estates and shipyards and coincidentally, just yesterday, I was researching the Unithai shipyard on google... so now I know exactly what a shithole area you're in...
