4 user comments on Taman Desa

Comparing the 3 nearby condominiums in Taman Desa, the Danau Permai, Danau Impian and Danau Idaman, the latter commands the best value in the perspective of property investor, in terms of price vs rental return.

Lived there for 3 years. If facing the highway. Its a mess. Quite hot as no more trees left around it. Lots of dengue cases, preferred to move out. Quite pricey for its standards

Good sized flats, nice pool , ping pong n tennis area. Squash court not good, lifts not working on an average 180 days a year! Rents are increasing beyond 1600 range which makes it NOT worth it even if one can afford the money! MANY SUPER NEW CONDOS for around 1800 range, so avoid this!

I used to love staying here but past months, with multiple change of management the facilities as not well taken care of. The water pressure getting worse especially for high floor unit, the lift is always down. Few times tree fell onto cars parked in the compound.
