About this listing
This is a bright, sunny two bedroom house in the calm, safe, middle-class neighborhood of Liberte 1. The house has a caretaker, cleaner, and huge private (walled) garden with fruit trees.
Welcome to the Pink House! Enjoy your morning coffee while checking your email under the mango tree in your own private garden....
This is a full two bedroom house in one of the calmest, friendliest, and most accessible neighborhoods in Dakar. Only a quick taxi or bus ride from downtown, the house is located at the end of a quiet cul de sac in a lovely middle-class neighborhood that dates back to the 1960s.
The house is fully furnished with a spacious dining/ living room, full kitchen with stove, refrigerator, and tons of cooking implements, two spacious bedrooms, and a newly renovated bathroom equipped with a shower (with hot water heater for the winter) and chaise anglaise. The master bedroom has a queen bed, armoire, two bedside tables, and a safe. The second bedroom has an armoire, vanity, and bedside table. Both rooms have mosquito nets over the beds. Most exciting of all is an enormous private courtyard/garden with a giant mango tree, other fruit and shade trees, and outdoor dining table.
The rent includes all utilities (water, electricity, and wireless internet) as well as maid service and laundry. Meals and shopping can be arranged according to interest.
Ideal for a couple, two couples, or two roommates, the house is truly a gem. The property manager who lives on site with her 4 year old son in a small studio will answer all of your pertinent questions about Dakar. She is also the owner of a taxi that can be rented for trips within and outside of Dakar. The housekeeper is a great cook and wonderful babysitter who can be enlisted to cook meals and/or take care of children on site.
Strong preference for long-term rentals and for someone who can take the whole house, but if you are interested in short-term or renting a room, please contact me.
