How aptly named for another home stay concept similar to Sekeping Tenggiri Bangsar. Seapark Brickhouse is literally a brick house in Seapark. The walls are bricks… the raw, unplastered ones. Bricks as they are. And the place showcases the beauty of keeping it simple. Plus, there’s no need to keep painting these walls!
There are four rooms (one upstairs, with a balcony), two living rooms, an open-air courtyard, covered car park for two cars (accessible from the back), common bathroom, basic kitchen and a 24-hour live-in housekeeper!
Both living rooms feature wooden chairs and a couple of plush chairs. The place is done up to allow natural lighting and plenty of ventilation. For example, natural sunlight comes through a few pockets of transparent roofing and a holey wall (literally a wall with holes) allows fresh air to come in from the open-air courtyard to the rest of the lower ground. Those are great ways to be eco-friendly, reducing the need for unnecessary energy usage.
The three rooms on the ground floor all come with its own attached bathroom, mosquito nets, ASTRO channels, living area with comfy chairs and wash basin (extra beds can be placed in this living area if needed) and cement bathtub (which looks rough). The room upstairs has a small balcony area. At night (if it doesn't rain!), you can request for a mat and enjoy some star-gazing if it suits you.
In the kitchen downstairs, there’s a stove, fridge, microwave oven, filtered and hot drinking water. If you do not wish to do any cooking at all (no matter how simple), you can also request the housekeeping to buy some food and other small items on your behalf. Alternatively, you could borrow the place’s bicycle or drive to the nearby area that has plenty of food for your picking. The housekeeper also has a car license and is available to drop and pick you up from the nearby LRT station – at no extra charge! Now, that’s what we call service!
Small gatherings are allowed but guests must keep their voice volumes relatively low, so as not to disrupt the neighbourhood’s serenity. Guests are also requested to park their cars properly to make sure that no jams are caused unnecessarily.
