Furnished Room in Ouakam <3 (Dakar)

Furnished room available in our international flatshare in Ouakam, Cite Asecna. A chill friendly flat with a big salon with breakfast balcony, in a guarded complex, in an ideal area within walking distance to the ocean. Directly behind Brioche Doree, which is always open : )

- Basic bedroom available long-term: with double bed, in-wall cabinets & closet, fan, mirror, etc... all the essentials... 130,000 cfa per month.

Available as of July 1st. Long term preferred. Weekly available in special cases.

Inclusive electricity, guardians, domestic house cleaning and hot water in the winter. The kitchen includes "extras" such as a juicer, blender, & water filter.

FAQ 1: Air conditioning? No, fans are quite fine, as the complex is shady and breezy. FAQ 2: Washing machine? No, the domestic Leontine washes clothes by hand perfectly well as is normal in Senegal, & a machine would skyrocket the electricity costs.

Our internet is pre-paid 3G with Expresso/Tigo/Orange USB keys (for laptops) & normal sim cards (for iPad/smartphones). It works much more reliably than Orange/Sonatel's (monopoly of) wifi service. It's not expensive and we each pay for our own usage. Neighboring Brioche Doree has a nice air-conditioned upstairs salon with free wifi which makes a good cafe workstation. We also just got a Huawei portable 3G wifi hotspot which can connect up to 5 devices.
