Melaka, Malaysia

Melaka is Malaysia's third smallest state that is located in the southern region of the country peninsula. Established by Parameswara in 1402, it has since then been conquered by Portuguese, Dutch, British, and briefly by Japan, before becoming part of the Malayan Union on 1 April 1946. Commonly referred to as a 'historical city', it has always been popular with foreigners and also Malaysians for its historical sites, especially the A Famosa, St. Paul's Church and Christ Church. It is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site together with Georgetown of Penang.

According to a legend, the Emperor of China sent a princess named Hang Li Po, to marry the Sultan of Melaka as a token of appreciation for his tribute and the nobles and servants who accompanied the princess settled in Bukit Cina and eventually grew into a class of Straits-born Chinese known as the Peranakans or also more commonly referred to as 'Baba-Nyonya'. Presently, the Baba-Nyonya culture and heritage, and of course its cuisine, are also driving factors for people to flock over to Melaka. The fact that it is just about 2 hours drive away from Kuala Lumpur, makes it a perfect destination for short trips to just dwell in the past, visit museums, enjoy the environment and even go on a food hunt. Talking about food hunt, Melaka strives to keep up with the tourism trend by having insta-worthy cafes and hotspots that people wouldn't want to miss. With that being said, the traffic condition usually gets worse during public and school holidays.

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

There is also good news for Melaka, according to the news, the KAJ Development has regained its port operating licence for the Melaka Gateway and cruise terminal jetty in May 2019. With that being done, Datuk Michelle Ong, CEO of KAJ Development Sdn Bhd told The Star that the international cruise terminal would be completed in September 2020 or earlier with expectation of tourists arriving at the state by cruise ships to spend a minimum of 200 USD each, which would enhance the state's revenue.

It is a landed residential area with modern village concept and ideal for the young people as it is affordable as well as located close to the Alor Gajah town.

It is a modern and luxurious apartment which is located facing the sea of the Malacca Straits as well as close to the historical sites that are famous among the tourists.

The unit is quite small and suitable for the young people, small family, or short-term accommodation. The cleanliness is quite poor as no garbage disposal provided and poor parking management.

This apartment is located near to the steel factory and sometimes it releases its steel dirt and pollutes the surrounding area. There are many foreigner students who rent here.

The rental price is quite low with there are eateries and convenience stores available here. It is located near to the Multimedia University (MMU).

Nothing much tbh. Limited food options, malay stalls and mcd. Many retail stores selling gadgets, clothes, etc. Toilets are the worst. Few atms found near the ground floor. Have 2 parts, east and west. On the western part, you can go for a movie at gsc theater. Beside gsc you can try out some arcade game. Have bridge connected to the another building which might be a hotel. Under the hotel, is the hm outlets and sport directs.

Nice play to stay for family staycation but not a walking distance for sightseeing in kota Melaka. The pool is big and beautiful. Unfortunately due to Covid-19 it is closed for kids. On accessible to adult.

Shops have no business and many of them have closed down since November 2017. Now it has very limited food and beverages and shopping options here. Even tangs, which originally had 2 levels, now only has 1 level, due to the fact that there are very few people shopping here. If the shops did not close down, I would certainly have given a higher rating.

This place is far from Melacca city. Plus there is no 24h grocery shops nearby. We have to travel for 40minutes (round trip) just to go to grocery store (it was past 10pm so we have to find nearest KKmart). On the other side the place has a great view. Especially for people who love to play golf this is the perfect location for you.

It's a new condominium and look elegant from outside the building. But the management very poor in car park and driveway direction. Lighting in carpark area not organize and some area are dark without lighting. Signage also didn't state clearly with which is block A and B. Only one direction out if u drive in and make a big round within the building then shared a lane with the car drive in.

Nice hotel with nice staff. The room's design is beautiful but room size is too small for 2 people. It's squeezed and not enough space for you to move if you stay with partner, even the bathroom is very small for your use alone. The buffet breakfast selection and taste was okay. The location is good, nearby some restaurants and connecting to Element shopping mall.

Looks old on the outside but some units are well renovated. Difficult to find food by walking but there is a 24 hour convenience store less than 1km away.

The location was very close to downtown Jonker Street and within 10-15 minutes walking distance. There was however a bad smell of sewage coming from the bathroom. Plus, the place is full of cockroaches. On the other hand, it is very strategically located cuz close to nearby attractions.

Nice place, very strategically located. Got many options for food and drinks here and within walking distance. A bit hectic during peak hour and holiday season which is understandable.

The mall close down already. Please don't waste your time going here. There is nothing interesting here other than cinema. There's no restaurant to eat too. But the view is excellent.

Nice place, very near to city centre, just walking distance to attractions nearby. Good for a huge family like mine. The price to stay here is affordable and reasonable with its good location. The outdoor pool was clean, and not crowded. The facilities are adequate.

Equipment in apartment is pretty outdated but security wise is okay. Spacious parking with guards in each block. Plus, access to the car park and lifts are also controlled by access cards but the building's lift is old and very slow. Overall is okay, suitable for people/big families with budget constraint.

It's strategically located, near to many attractions in Melaka. The room is super comfy and beautifully decorated. Spacious with great sea view. However, the pool has a strict dress code to obey.

Ample parking spaces, got few shop lots opened but more abandoned shop lots. The place is dark and quiet at night.

Theres so many choice of food here. From satay to asam pedas can be found here. Parking is easy to find but it gets quite busy in the afternoon.

The exterior of the building looks unkept and worn off. Rubbish can be seen not collected in the area.

The villa is huge, spacious and good for big groups. Since its a new neighbourhood, its quite far from shops. Plus, the garden needs proper and consistent maintenance.

Overall, it's an old condo, but the interior is clean and nice. The pool was clean and enjoyable. It is very convenient because in front of the building, theres a grocery store. It is recommended that u take Grab/Taxi to Jonker Street.

The sea view is amazing from here. However, the security is really tight. Visitors are not allowed to use the pool. Plus, its about 25 mins to Jonker Street and most of the attractions in Melaka but near to Pantai Klebang and few kids activities atleast.

In front of the neighbourhood got a row of shops but most of it is abandoned. However, u can still find anything you're looking for within short drive. The beach is super close. Can just walk to the beach in less than 10 minutes.

Strategically located because its very near to Pusat Bandaraya Melaka. Best part is that it is within 1km-5km to nearby Klebang's attraction such as, Coconut Shake Klebang Original and Keria Antarabangsa Hj Jalil. If you wish to visit Melaka Raya area, need to drive for about 20 mins to reach there.

Strategic location with ample parking spaces but theres too many vacant shop lots here with only a few that is operating.

Great neighbourhood with easy access to the beach. Can find nearby foodcourts, restaurant and mini market within 2 mins drive and 5 mins drive to Melaka Raya.

Overall the house is quite nice. It is also huge with one master bedroom, 2 standard rooms, and one small room. The neighbourhood is peaceful with amazing seaside view. Night market is also available here near the beach from 4-11pm.

This is a 5 star luxury condo with beachfront view in Malacca city with gated and guarded condo. Plus, access to all major amenities and attraction such as, international schools, specialist hospitals, shopping malls, golf was easy. Only took 15 mins to reach Melaka City Centre.

The bungalow is spacious enough for big families. However, cleanliness is a big issue and the units need a serious upkeeping. It is also badly maintained and managed. It looks old and smelly. Plus, the swimming pool floor was broken thus very dangerous to swim.

It is a Malay-majority residential area which consists of mainly landed properties. Suitable for families as school and kindergarden are just 2-3 mins away. The area is also strategically located to many amenities and eateries. Plus, can access to Bandar Melaka within 25 mins drive.

The house is spacious for a townhouse. Mostly townhouse is around 1000 sqft. But here its 1660 sqft with big compound area. Very worth at its price value. Plus, this town house is the same size as a single-storey 22 x 70 terrace house. Location wise, its near to school, banks and eateries but, its 5 mins away from industrial area.

Kejiranan yang harmoni, tenteram dan selamat dan sangat sesuai untuk duduk sendiri atau sewaan. Lokasi yang strategik hanya 5 minit ke Pekan Jasin dan berdekatan dengan pelbagai kemudahan seperti kedai, pasaraya, sekolah, tadika, balai polis dan masjid.
