good description. I will keep away for miles from nirun

pattaya plaza on the other hand, condo from 90s...big pool, nice people, mostly thai, good sound proofed rooms......near sukhumvit....

perfect....

why is that perfect? location near sukhumvit isn't ideal? if you go out centrally and drink you'd need a taxi back

If you don’t mind living at Jomtien, easy to find condo at Jomtien Beach Condos for less than a million. Close to beach, big swimming pools. Also View Talay 1, right on main baht bus route to Pattaya, huge pool, not too far from beach, many available for a bit more than a million, but with today’s buyers’ market could probably bargain at least one of them down to less than a million. Both well maintained complexes.

Spot on and next to the bus station for a 1.75hr 150 baht bus ride from the airport and a 10 baht bus ride away from Central Pattaya or up Theppraya Road from Tesco Lotus and the outlet mall. Not for me but there are a number of bar beers on the ground floor if you get very lazy. The studios I think are around 32sqm and very low balconies though. These listed prices are very ambitious - if you are sharking and have the cash I would go in around 850-900 and see if any need to sell. Also look up the listings on the estate agents website to see how long they have been listed for. 

Also the area round the lifts may have bargains put up. I would also say why not rent a condo for a month when you finally home in on your preferred block if you decide to buy. That will give you a much better idea if you could actually live there. The hipflat link above has one on at 850 which is priced to sell if the listing is real. Some listings are fake or old and sold and are used by agents to get you to ring up and drag you in.

You have obviously never even been there let alone lived there. Haha. What a wind up. 🙂 

'kev' went there a year ago shilling for business. It's pretty grim for my tastes.....there's a comment

 

If I'd worked for 50 years and ended up retiring in Pattaya and living in either of these two rooms, I'd be asking myself where did I go wrong.

he must be that guy in underwear only

yeah, it would be interesting to know what happened to some of these people over the long run. i also wanted to know if there had been any pattaya fliers club members at nirun. the balconies are way below safety specs there. you could easily fall off after a couple beers.

The bigger condos don't you just end up filling it with more junk? how many sofas and tables do you need, how many bedrooms? one, two max, friends on holiday won't want to stay there. I have seen some big condos that have loads of empty unnecessary space

That is correct but totally under your control, with a small condo you don't have the choice..... once you have a sofa, bed, table and whatever there won't be room for much more. It may be a personal thing, I spent a lot of my working life in hotel rooms and rented (small) condos and feel I now want space. Having space around you is more comfortable, and my original comment was, in a small condo, you could spend only limited time indoors. If indeed that is your lifestyle, or the condo is a weekend or holiday only requirement, small will work for you. I visit the odd friends in condos, both small and large, I know which would work better for me.

Condo size is really personal thing how much you need..
You can live very active day/night OUTDOOR life in Pattaya when need for condo is mainly for sleeping, sex and shower only.

i have lived at nirun and i can dig it getting depressing, esp if your retired and pensioning.

 

fat old dudes, sometimes even in their underwear kept coming out to the elevators with hookers when i lived there, escorting them out after a session i suppose.

 

a lot of older foreigner guys, mostly europeans, have lost self control of their lives and hole up there. they have long hair, lots of body hair, not really kept in the hygiene dept  kind of let themselves go, probably alcohol plays a major 

 

the hookers seemed to feed on their misery in a way, like they were being slowly preyed on and sucked dry. some weird vibes there.

Haha, think Nana Hotel and the old guys who live there!
