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.

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.

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.

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'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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Best things
- Quite and nice place
- Good location (Near to major cities and also public transport)

Worst things
- Facilities are limited and some are not functioning. Poor build quality I can say.
- Terrible lift break down and water leaking issues (My house has pipe leaking issue as well)
- Management was terrible before Henry Butcher took over. It is better now but still need more improvement
- Shopping mall is pretty empty
- Bad privacy, people can see you from the opposite building easily.

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.

Overall, recommended to own for own-staying. Great location and
awesome environment to live, great view to oversee the KL view at affordable price range. Its value is definitely worth equivalent to those in DPC if not more than. The only downside is the developer workmanship quality but that can be improved down the road with the right joint committee group.

very very very bad management..
they making rules that everyone cant follow
not suitable for working tenants.
they treat tenants like they all have no job and have to entertain them as they please

One of the rare condos in KL and in this side of town having so much open space for walking/jogging/cycling and playing for children. The in-house market and food is good. They deliver to your unit oso.
It is little older so not have modern amenities inside apartment and also no gym.
Security is good but not excellent. However they have cameras in important places.

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 view, but the parking ram is quite narrow.

Good environment and strategic location for access to other places. Food,banks, hospitals and other amenities. The condo cost and upkeep is reasonable.

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.

Nice place for those who loved peaceful and quiet environment.

Parking is hell. Road is narrow.

Very good modern and newly constructed condo.. lots of access point and within walking distance from MRT station taman Connaught SBK26 ... Several good service shops can be found there like a pharmacy, mamak, mynews and more.. very good place for rent prices are around MYR800 for a single room upto MYR1500 for a two bedrooms unit

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!

Great architecture. However, the designer didn’t gave much attention to the natural light coming inside the building.

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

Excellent lanscape,gym and swimming pool. Each unit is by its own and not attached to another. Easy acess to bkt bintang and Ampang. Has many eateries, fast food and even mini markets down stairs, suitable for young couples and executives.

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.

Amazing place to live. It feels like you are living in a resort filled with trees. The only problem they have is slow internet as the place is 21 years old and they did not upgrade to fiber optic cable, also the management is little slow in repairing things.

I basically live here. There is no access card facility here and lifts are slow but the condominium is very accessible to everything. Train station is 3 min walk. Sunway mall is 1 min.

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.

This is the worse quality for a high end residence i have had. Totally regreted buying with this group

how actually it matters whether the land was tin mining , garbage landfil or reclamation? got safety or fengshui issue or it depends on the individual?

If landfills are not properly stabilized, due to earth movement or stress conditions may cause liquefaction of the ground structures of the building in long term

Each to its own.

If you think landfill, ex tin mining land and reclaimed land are safe, then go for it.

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!

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.

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.

There is a problem in a bathroom. Bad smell like sewage. I guess it because drainage pipe construction matter. No action by management for 3 months since I reported, even some resident reported same situation(according to management!). I am going to move out. Be considered if you are smell sensitive.

Place to stay is ok2 lor. Friendly neighbour. The problem is management are not professional, not friendly in fact their treatment to community are very unfriendly and unfair. They more favor to The Holmes residence.
Internet connection service only got Time. No unifi. Connection is ok but sometimes not stable. Mobile internet connection are not stable at all.
No convenience store available inside Razakmas.

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.

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.

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.
