Home Sweet Home

Here it is - the tour of our apartment!  Our household goods are still on their way across the ocean so the place is really bare.  We didn't ship much furniture, so the pieces that we currently have are being rented.

The entry - inside the apartment looking at the front door.  Both sides of the wall are closets with many shelves.  Lots of space for shoes, but a place to put coats would have been nice...

From the entry looking into the apartment

The living room - the wall of windows and the balcony are all sliding glass doors that open

The kitchen - there is a fridge, dishwasher, a UV Light cleaning drawer, rice storage bin, gas stove/oven, and an electric burner on the island

Laundry room - this is a little room to the left of the kitchen window.  This is a washer/dryer all-in-one unit that is a pain to use.

The master bedroom is to the right of Dulce in this photo.  The other three bedrooms and guest bathroom are down the hallway.

Guest bedroom #1

 Guest bedroom #2 (this will be our office)

Guest bedroom #3 (Dulce always poses for the camera in hopes of getting treats)

Guest bathroom

Master bedroom - there is another enclosed balcony behind the sliding screens

In the master bedroom - walk-in closet on the left, vanity straight ahead, bathroom to the right

"Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest."

  1. Hi! My boyfriend and I are planning to move to Korea after we get married. I was wondering how much your rent is. Sorry if it seems rude.

  2. Rent varies a lot depending on apartment owner preference, furniture/utilities included in the lease, location, etc. Typically expect to pay between 1,200,000 KRW to 1,800,000 KRW for a 3-4 bedroom apartment like ours (outside of Seoul). Sometimes owners may charge more depending on your income as well. From what we can tell, there is no real "set price". Most apartments are owned by private parties and they go through brokers to come up with a price. The best thing you can do is negotiate the price - ask for more utilities or extra furniture, the worst they can say is no!
