Large condominiums, not the greatest layout but the sweeping views of Penang harbour from the bridge to Straits Quay are amazing

They simply charge the parking fee without follow the rate and no receipt given. I ask why six dollar cos the rate only 3.
The guard shout at me "who ask you to park here!"
Nonsense !

Terrible maintenance. When something breaks down, all management does is put up a stupid sign, and that's the end of it. Nothing gets repaired. Management known to embezzle funds.

One of the early high rise condominium along Gurney Drive but the facilities are still very well maintained. Nice sea view from high floors

Residents with card only allow to use the facilities. And to apply for the card, residents normally have fo wait for months. I am renting one of the units, the day I moved in i was stopped by guard and denied entry. Reason given is they suspected I am renting one of the units as service apartment or b&b. As B&B is NOT ALLOW here. The guard house team are very rude and not friendly. They clamp your visitors car if more than 1 hour and demand for money, owners despise tenants who are renting the place, politics and gossips, etc etc....

Very old and seems to be overrun with vacationers and homestays right now, which is illegal.
