Feels like home
Cozy Condos is a fantastic fully furnished, full-service apartment in Nha Trang located down a quiet local lane at the southern edge of the tourist centre, a 15-minute walk to the beach. Whether you want to stay one-night or one-month, you get the same over-the-top friendly service and amazing in-room amenities like a washing machine and a fully-equipped kitchen.
English-speaking owner Ms Huong will give you a warm welcome, greeting you in person and offering a free fresh coconut welcome drink. She is always available for help, and the phone in the room connects directly to her mobile phone.
The studio apartments are neat, tidy, spacious and home-y, with the space neatly divided so it doesn’t feel like you are sleeping in the kitchen. You get a kitchen with everything you could possibly need for self-catering: large fridge, gas stove, fume hood, toaster oven, microwave, free drinking water dispenser and double sink. There’s a living room and dining table, vanity, flatscreen TV, wardrobe, springy bed, linens and a small but perfectly adequate bathroom and shower.
When you return at the end of your long day, the staff welcome guests with a big smile and you really will feel like you are coming back to a comfortable home. Actually, this place has more than our own home! Everything has been thought of down to the smallest details, including a flashlight in case of a power outage, large safe, hairdryer, iron and ironing board and a washing machine. The washing machine definitely comes in handy after hot, sweaty trips to the beaches and waterfalls. Hang your clothes to dry on lines upstairs on the roof.
Stay for more than a few days and you get a basket of fruit and one free breakfast at the rooftop cafe, which has a lovely view.
Cozy Condos opened in 2012 and now there are many fully-furnished apartments to choose from in Nha Trang, but what sets this place apart is the true hospitality. If you are just looking for a comfortable bed and shower or you want a hotel service experience, then an apartment wouldn’t make sense. But this is ideal for a family or for those who appreciate home-type comforts – we loved being able to make our own quick breakfast and throwing our salt water drenched clothes in the wash.
To reiterate, Ms Huong is extremely helpful and she can book tickets and tours. Cozy Condos also offers motorbike and bicycle rentals. If for some reason your taxi driver doesn’t know where it is, the military hospital “Vieng Quan Y 87” is at the top of the lane. Airport pick-up can be arranged for US$16.
