I want to introduce and share with you a Superhost – Michelle & Jay.
I first stayed at Michelle’s Balcony Home apartment at Sindang Station near Dongdaemum in April 2016 when I brought my mum for holidays. A cozy studio apartment spacious enough for 2 persons. During my stay we ran into a small problem with the bathroom and she immediately sent her husband over to help us resolve.
Fast forward 2 years later she now has about 33 homes – 10 homes on the 8th floor in one building and another 23 homes in another building (from levels 4 to 6) at the next alley all located at Myeondong area.
Last Christmas during our family vacay I stayed with Michelle again this time at one of the apartments in Myeondong. (Here’s a peek at the studio I stayed).
The location is super convenient – 3mins walk to the train station “Jonggak Line1”, Cheonggyecheon stream is at your doorstep, Myeondong, Insadong and many more other attractions are all within walking distance! That’s not all your spoilt for choice when it comes to food choices the streets downstairs are lined with restaurants from fast food like BHC to K BBQs like Mapogalaegi and Super Golden Pig.
Her studios are clean, well maintained, stylish, modern and smells nice. From the decor you can tell Michelle takes pride in decorating and designing the place to make her guests feel they are home away from home. Adding her own personal touch.
Not once but during both my trips when I asked if she could help to purchase some items online on my behalf to have it delivered to the apartment before I arrive. She agreed without hesitation.
She is always thinking on the guest’s side and provides everything you want during your stay. She’s very responsive to messaging, always there to offer assistance and advise whenever you need. Even with her expanding business she’s still so nice, humble, attentive and personal, not at all cocky.
I highly recommend anyone going to Seoul to stay at her place. Don’t take my word for it check out her listings here and judge for yourself. She always receive positive feedback.
Thank you for reading!
