Considering to rent an apt. at The Bayshore

Post by sergios101 » Fri, 10 Aug 2007 11:09 am

Hi

First of all, I'm sorry about yet another email about "I want to live somewhere, but is it a good place?"

Now, on to yet another email about "I want to live somewhere, but is it a good place?" :wink:

My family and I just relocated to Singapore from HK. After having overcome the shock of seeing the size of the bedrooms in Singapore apts. (you could make two bedrooms out of each bedroom here! :o ) I think we are going to finally settle for the Bayshore. I'm signing the offer letter today, but it's never too late to change our minds I hope! So, here's the info:

- We wanted 4 bedrooms as we have a 4 month old baby who will be in his own room, and my wife will work mostly from home, so we need a proper office
- We don't want to pay more than 4K a month
- And we need full facilities also for the reasons above, my wife will spend a lot of time at home
- Finally, we have a maid as well
- We found a place at the Bayshore which we negotiated down to a very acceptable price a month, it has a nice partial view of the sea and the greenery on the east of the condo
- It's well maintained but it has the original end of the 90's supercool fixtures, which we'll change so overall we are happy with the solution
- I work in Marina and my wife works in Raffles place.

So, does anyone have any ideas of how convenient/inconvenient the place is to go to work? I know about the normal shuttle, and the Bus Plus service (not particularly cheap) and I think I can live with being far from an MRT station. Anything I'm missing here?

Thanks in advance for any insight!

I am negotiating the contract this week, so I would rather not talk about the price. But the flat is 1400 sq ft. with a view to the south, so a lot of green and a chunk of sea.

I researched the transportation options a bit and there are two shuttles in the morning: the condo one goes to Bedok MRT; the Bus Plus one takes to the centre, although it's a bit pricey (in fact, coming from HK I found a number of things more pricey here). On top of that, it looks as if normal buses might also be a good option.

I didn't check schools or anything as I don't yet have children of school age.

It would be interesting to hear the price you paid once you have completed the contract.
Thx
