Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur (also known as KL) is the capital city of Malaysia. The metropolitan area of KL, or Greater KL, has a population of around 7 millions. It is the most racially diverse city in Malaysia, with the population made up of mainly Malays, Chinese, Indians, Banglas, and Indons. The public transportation in this city is very well built, with many LRT & MRT train lines, supported by RapidKL shuttle buses.

As for the real estate market, Kuala Lumpur has the most expensive properties in the country due to it being the capital city and houses many GLC & multinational headquarters. Besides, KL also has the most foreigner-friendly real estate investment policies by the federal government, as foreigners can easily buy any residential properties here without any restrictions, as long as the price is above RM1 million.

The following shows the residential property transactions in KL over the last few years:

Most foreigners who invest in KL properties usually prefer high-end condominiums in the few expat-friendly hotspots, such as Jalan Ampang, KLCC, and Mont Kiara. On the other hands, the locals will prefer landed residential properties in established neighbourhoods, such as Bangsar, Damansara Heights, Desa ParkCity, and Taman Desa. This observation may be due to foreigners prefer condo facilities for their families' enjoyment, while the locals look more towards capital appreciation of the land their house built on.

The design of traffic flow in this development is very bad. First it forces traffic to flow thru its basement then cars need to circle 2 rounds before can come up to the group level to pickup passengers. Also badly named signboards and building names.

About 60% occupancy already lah.

No doubt TWINS has its issues, but if no issues, the price would already be much higher. End of the day its already priced in. Quality of finishing can always be solved with money.

Noisy and dirty. Staff changes constantly and management sucks. Expats, better stay away.

Dysfunctional JMC and useless Chairmans for the last several years ... the property manager of Twins told me this is a low-class condominium himself.

Anyway, i sold my unit already as i couldn't bear with the bad management!

Management is outsourced to some third-party handling the building maintenance. For the 40++ cents psf i'm paying, i don't see any exceptional services. Hope this will improve once strata title issued.

Twins distance to the 2 future MRT stations (an underground station for MRT line 3) is impressive, check this out https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=60&v=nMoEHrOD3Nw

Damansara Height address still smell good. Lol. Twin is likely the worst performer there.

Good news for Twins, as Sprint bypass to KL is being built next to Pavilion Damansara Heights. So less traffic and reduced traffic noise for Twins when bypass is completed.

A very niche community mall with some nice restaurants. The food here are expensive though, especially the Thai restaurant on the ground floor.

One of my favorite shopping malls in Malaysia. Nice and conformtable.

Can basically find anything you want here. The only brand missing here is H&M.

Bad service, my friend stay in tower A but guard give carpark in tower B, need to change lif to go to tower A, very disappointed bcoz i carry a lot of things.

Good view, but the parking ram is quite narrow.

One of the worst security guards I've encountered. My friends are moving in so I have to drop them off. At drop off area, the security guard ask me to go to loading bay. He only said the loading bay is below, didn't even give clear instructions.

I went down and can't see any loading bay. So I asked the guard at the entrance. He didn't even answer me, he just ask me to get out of their building. Hello? I'm here to drop off my friend who paid for your freaking lousy condo here. I didn't know where to go, so I just went down your parking because i already turn circles and can't even find the loading bay.

After going down, a nice security guard opened the door for us at B2. Okay, so i thought maybe this condo wasn't that bad after all. We used the lift to go to lobby Lvl 1 to help our friends out with their stuffs. But after we go to level 1, a security guard suddenly rush towards us and screamed at us. Basically He asked us why did we park down there. So I told him 'your colleagues didn't even tell me where is the loading bay, when I asked, they just ask me to get out of the condo!! Hey, I have to park somewhere in order to drop off my friend and help her out with her stuffs isn't it!! Then only the security guard screamed and told me the exact location of the loading bay. Hello? Why don't you tell me the loading bay is at another block when I asked?

Someone posted the showroom pictures earlier, I feel that it looks nice could probably due to the high ceiling (spacious feel), developer's show unit might not reflex the final finished product, many times they like to modify (misleading) the ceiling height to attract buyers' attention.

Spacious place. Well kept. Good location near town. A lot of older families staying there. It’s quiet. Wheelchair friendly. The garden is well managed.

An old condominium with well maintainence. Helpful management staff and strict security makes the condominium environment safe and comfortable. TARUC bus stop here and fetch student. Many food stall and restaurants here and it is very difficult to stay hungry when so many food is ready to serve, and most of them are cheap and not pricey.

Nice location, nice neighborhood. I like the fact that this condo contains many families and old folks. But the condo is very old. Lift is in bad shape and even dangerous. Recent change of management made it worse. Love the swimming pool and gym is so so.

Easily the best PV amongst others. Strong security, clean and well maintained.

Modern housing development within Desa Park City. The townhouse type villas have several levels, heigh ceilings and large glass fronts. Not much outdoor space and views are limited depending at which part of the development you are. The height ceiling indicates electricity bills will be on the higher site.

Condo units in same building as the hotel Capri with different access of entrance and parking areas. Conveniently located near to LRT station and walking distance to F&B outlets below the condo and nearby mall.

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!

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.

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.

This condo is okay. Elevator rarely broke down. If it does, the fix would be a.s.a.p. Rented for more than a year. not crowded. one floor has 6 units so have better privacy. if you’re renting here make sure find a car park if you have a vehicle.

Kinrara Mas is situated next to an illegal landfill and chemical dumpsite. The foul smell is blatant. Probably no one will consider buying this property or staying in it.

Visitor parking quite limited while the road leading to the condo is very narrow. Surrounding of the condo is full of lorries and like industrial area..

Loved it at first but then after 2 years staying here, I never wanted to move out more.
If your unit faces kesas, the noise is unbearable after a while. It's also so dusty.
If you face the back, the lrt station, then you get to enjoy every single announcement from your living room
Mini market is super expensive although I do like the fact they open till midnight.
You are not allowed to have guests overnight. If you do, you need to apply for overnight pass from the management during working hours.
The sky garden is completely locked down after someone committed suicide a few years back.

I'm a tenant here. This is the worst condo I have ever stayed. Just in less than one year, there are already cracks on the wall, furnitures built in are broken. Reported to management but nobody came to repair.

The worst thing in this condo is the LIFT! There are different problems with the lifts EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

If you are looking for low density with educated tenants, this is the right spot.
It is very convenient in terms of grocery and food. Short walk away from the stay you will see a mini business park with cafe and restaurants.
There's a small Monday night market right beside the road.
And NSK is just a short distance away.
Oh ya, there is a mcDonald in Shell Petrol station! It is located slightly after NSK.

The road is a little narrow and many people parking outside of the condominium causing traffic just outside the condominium.

Good place to stay. Low density. Only 100+ unit. Has 3 lifts. Good security. 2 minutes to Duke highway. 10 minutes to KL town.

For me, this condominium was very strategic place, convenient and very suitable place to be your home. So much visitor parking. Easy for your family members to come. The security very capable and make sure to the resident before give the permission pass. However some of the security guard cannot speak well in english.

I can describe the building as aging gracefully. Slightly more expensive compared to the rest of the area to rent or purchase units here, it comes with walking distance to LRT, handy mamak stalls, Cyber cafes, KKmart, Computer shops right in front of the main gate.

Parking is hell. Road is narrow.

Plus points
A new supermarket "Village Grocer" has opened recently on 15 March 2018 (8 min walk).
Fresh produce, freshly baked bread and imported ham, etc available.
24 hours security.
Good view facing Ampang Point.

Minus points
Some residents are noisy.
Heavy wooden door.
Music can be heard from neighbouring units.
Apartment facing KLCC side has no view, view was blocked by new apartment, dark even at daylight.
Car and other means of transport required, 15-20 min walking distance to nearby shops.

Well, it look exclusive from far but when you go for details, I personally don't think it is a well defined finishing.
The car parking along the road before and after the residence entrance is a big turn off and the parking system seem a little complicated.
Overall, nice place, limited views, easily accessible but I think the unit just a little overly priced.

Nice apartment with good security. The environment and surrounding is nice and clean.

Cons are the parking here is really really limited and cars often get towed by the city council or get summons.

Easy LRT access (400m) and a short distance (700m) to two key highways (DUKE and AKLEH) making KLCC and its surrounds an easy commute. The LRT makes journeys to KLIA easy as well.

Low density (88 units) and a minimum of two parking bays per condominium is a rare find.

The way they treat students and tolerance towards student are super rude and incredibly dissatisfied and disappointing, if youre a student, rent somewhere else, its not student friendly and respect is nowhere to be found.

1 star for condo size n spacious design. Corridor looks like a cheap government flat. Lift not maintain. KLCC view blocked by new building constructed.

The location is amazing. The ONLY reason it took us so long to leave is due to the strategic and convenient location. However, the horrible management and maintenance are why we are fed up. With a maintenance fee of RM420 A MONTH, they still can't afford to fix the lifts... There are two lifts for each column... BUT, only one works (barely). Every few weeks the lift spoils. The excuses are:
- Management didn't get a technician or pay the technician.
- Water entered the lift so it has to dry... What?
- The lift just isn't working and it is no longer working hours for the technician.

With all the money going in, there is no reason they cannot install new lifts. It's been more than 4 years!

An old condominium in the center of Mont Kiara full with expat communities with a neighborhood mall in front of it. The facilities are well maintained and there is a lot of Grab cars to be called upon.

The entrance is abit hidden and the carpark is in a different building compared to the residential units, would have given it 5 stars if not for the two things above.

This is an impressive chef d'oeuvre realised by Aset Kayamas. Conceived initially as a simple residential condominium, many holes and leaking problems appeared in less than one year. The residents thus enjoy interesting cave living experience. Furthermore, the cave world will be transformed into water world during rainy days. And all these waterfalls require no extra charge for the residents.
