That's expensive. Get a gf and stay with her. Save for the rent but probably spend more than the rent cost. Hehehe I'm just joking.
A lot of site can help please search more and good luck.

Very few guesthouses down here have websites. In fact very few guesthouses down here have any concept at all about marketing. A big reason so many fail.
Electricity costs vary because some landlords add their own tariff on top of the electricity company's tariff. Actual residential cost is 720 riel ( aprox 18 cents) per kw/h for the first ( I think) 250 kw/h and then 820 riel ( aprox 20 cents) after that. You will have no option but to pay what the landlord charges, but if you are being charged more then 1000 riel ( aprox 25 cents) take a hike and find somewhere else.
Water I can't remember, but my monthly average is around $3.
Last months bill for me for elec and water combined was $14. Its a fairly small apartment, I don't have A/C or hot water, run 2 fans regularly, a small fridge, T.V , a bench top oven and a couple of lights and of course computer and phone charging. I pay 1000r kw/h flat rate.

450$ for Sovannapoum GH is about right ($15 per night, they dont do monthly rates), i used to get discount at around $350ish for the twin room with fridge and hot shower, because they know me, (they dont do monthly rates, but because they know i stay for a long time, i get my room for $5 per day cheaper than the standard rate) but then still that is a lot more expensive than my apartment that i ended up renting, bigger room+kitchen for $110 a month, hence why i moved, staying in a guesthouse you only need about 5 days to shop around, theres plenty of long stay apartments around in SHV all around the $100-$250 per month mark depending on how new/quality of the building, anything more than $250 and you could get a house,

$450. a month, plus the landlord is a standup guy.

A Russian moved into one of his houses, got drunk one night and left his front door open. Someone came over the wall (now has barbed wire) and stole his I-phone and electronics. The landlord is a reserve three stripe cop, went on line and tracked the I-phone down, put his uniform/gun on and went and arrested the thief. He got all the stolen stuff back. As I said, a real stand up man.

The alterative is down by where I live across from Hawaii beach. The houses are $450. but also next door are some new ones for rent from another landlord, but I don't know the price.

Good idea, but I'm still looking for a site that lists girlfriends that want a handsome old and rich barang to move in with them.
I could use your help jessy.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
