The bathrooms have 2 sinks, a dressing area, and a shower. Great large, open & airy spaces kitted out with locally found furniture & knick knacks.
With a family ourselves, we have geared them to a family or group of close friends, for short or longer term lets.
The Studio apartments are located above Gallery 29. The building, was probably rebuilt into its current form in the late 1940's or early 1950's. The building has a Deco look to it, it is handsome and has a Shanghai plaster finish to its exterior.
In its previous life, this stylish building contained local business offices, then an illegal urban swiftlet farm for bird nests, but now transformed, it is an airy happy place with great views over the local festivals that come down our street. Decorated with a mixture of old and new furniture, found objects and a splash of bright color that adds a touch of funky glamour. One each on the 1st & Top floor, they are self contained, open plan spaces of about 1200 sq. ft, fully air-conditioned, with hot showers and a TV and DVD player (DVD's provided).
The apartments are perfect for a family or a group of friends, equipped with a King sized bed and 3 singles. The fully equipped kitchen comes with a Welcome grocery basket of all the basic; milk, cereal, bread, jams, fruit, biscuits and Maggie mee!
