Dist 7 Penthouse vacation rental with amazing balcony & city view
About this room
Have you wonder how normal Saigonese goes about their daily life? Come live in our modern penthouse in a 100% residential area in District 7, a bustling neighborhood filled with tasty food and friendly neighbors. Comfortable 3 bedrooms, full amenities, perfect for groups and families. 24/7 security. Just 10 mins to District 1 and less than 5 minutes walk to all food & drinks.
Forget about the clamoring city and burning heat – this is your escape. This vacation rental penthouse is right on the top floor with plenty of natural light and cooling breeze.
Kitchen and living room are spacious for a good hangout. You can enjoy the drinks on our breezy balcony or with some hit movies on HBO. Books are available in case you get tired with cable TV.
The master bedroom has an en-suite bath with tub & hot water; queen size bed and great view of Phu My Bridge.
The second bedroom has a large king size bed. You can also stretch out on the mattress above the bed for a quick nap.
The third and single bedroom is our personal favorite. It’s great for kid but also ideal for the lone friend who wants some privacy. The bed can comfortably fit 1 adult with one end for sleeping and 1 for reading in the daytime. The small writing desk offers a lovely view of the city that can bring out the writer in everyone.
The shared bathrooms have stand-in shower and hot water. All bathrooms have fresh clean towels and other amenities (toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo & shower gel) so you can travel lighter.
You’ll have access to the entire apt and the vast rooftop above.
There’s security guard at the main entrance 24/7 & you’ll need a card to use to elevator. The card will be provided together with your key upon arrival. In case of loss, please contact us immediately. A replacement fee may apply.
Interaction with guests
We’re living in the same building, just a few floors down. My husband and I work from 9am to 6pm Mon-Fri but you can just call or text us if you need help. Plus our Dad is also available all day (he’s retired) should you need anything.
The neighborhood is truly local. You can find a traditional market just a 5 minutes walk away where there are plenty of fresh produce and seasonal fruits to try. There are also 24-hr convenient stores such as Circle K and B-smart, just a few minutes’ walk from the building. Alternatively, you can walk 0.5km to Lottemart – the Korean supermarket chain – where you can explore the myriad of brands both local & international.
Lottemart also has an awesome cinema so don’t worry, you will not miss any of the new blockbusters when traveling. If you want to try the new IMAX cinema, there’s one in Vivo City shopping mall which is 1km away.
When it comes food, you’ll be spoilt for choices in our neighborhood. There are more than just pho to try (even though if you insist, we do have a few good recommendations), and you’ll probably need to go on a diet afterwards (I’ve been trying to but never succeed – they keep opening up new diners!).
It’s just 3.5km to the city center (approx. $3 cab fare). If you’re feeling local, you can try the bus, which is right in front the building. You can find a cab waiting outside the main entrance or hail one cruising by.
Uber & Grab Taxi are highly recommended. Or if you’re feeling adventurous, try Grab Bike or Uber Motor (motorbike taxi on demand) for a change.
Other things to note
There’s a bank & ATM on the ground floor where you can exchange or withdraw cash (fees may apply – check with your bank).

Everything was perfect. Nhien and her Husband lives up to the Super host title! Thanks for the kind hospitality, will be back!
Nhien’s homely apartments were perfect for our group. She is an incredible host that offered assistance in booking tours and activities for us. This Airbnb far exceeded our expectations!!
Duc and Nhien’s place is amazing! Everything is just as described in the provided information and the rooms are just as beautiful as they are in the photos. I’m impressed that each room has their own wall painting that symbolised a different city across Vietnam. There is any a little guidebook in the apartment to show us good local food nearby, which provide great experiences to foreigners to explore Vietnamese culture. The place is not in the city center but you can easily get a taxi/call Grab or Uber thanks to the detailed instructions from Duc and Nhien. The couple showed us great hospitality and are extremely responsive to our enquiries before and during the stay. Strongly recommend this place to all travelers to Saigon.
Very considerate hosts with outstanding service.
We loved staying at Nhien's apartment! Being on the 15th floor gave us great views during the day and night. We loved the option to cook and have plenty of space for our family of 5, though, I will admit that we went outside and picked up bahn mi for breakfast every morning. Nhien went above and beyond with her help during our stay. She taught a cooking class for me and for my daughter, went shopping with me to find some special items to take home and helped navigate the return of our camera that we left in an Uber car. The space is neat and clean with lots of natural light streaming in the windows. It was easy to get a taxi or Uber to take us wherever we wanted to go and we loved exploring the neighborhood too. I can't say enough good things! We are already planning our return trip to Vietnam and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else!
If you are going to HCM, just think of this place as it's just about perfect in a lot of ways. It is not in the actual heart of the city, but at a very nice short distance (about 15-20 mins by cab). I actually loved it as you are not far from the city centre, at the same time you don't have to be in a very busy & hectic place. Nhien was very supportive ever since I booked this place and she helped me book the Cu Chi tour with a very good English speaking guide. We, as a family, felt as if we are staying at a close friend's place and not someone I knew via Airbnb. The cleanliness of the house was top notch and the walls are decorated with extremely cute wall hangings. It was so cute that we got the address of the shop from Nhien and we bought the same things for our home. I can keep writing a lot of small positive things, but I would leave it to others to experience it all. Extremely sweet place!
We loved our stay here in ho chi minh city all because of the amazing hosts we found in Duc and Nhien. They were very helpful and always gave us amazing suggestions to plan our trips. Thanks a lot
We really enjoyed 5 day stay in Nhien's flat which has really nice view of town both day and night, well maintained rooms and beds, and easy access to many local eateries and a shopping mall just by a few minutes walk. Actually what we especially loved is the local surroundings, yet you can still reach district 1 tourist areas in 20min or so by Taxi or Grab/Uber. She also prepared a town guidebook for us in advance which was also extremely helpful to plan activities every day. Thanks Nhien for making trip truly memorable one!!
We stayed here for only two nights and didn't get to see An her self but her father lived downstairs and showed us around. The house is very clean and spacious and can easily fit 5-7 people. I'm quiet happy with everything!
Everything is perfect! It's really a nice clean place that we have so much fun there. The bed is also comfortable! I'd love to recommend my friends and my family to visit your house again. I appreciate your kindness and all your help, thanks again!
