Accommodation around Dover

Post by dennishlho » Thu, 25 Sep 2008 8:20 pm

I would like some advise on accommodation around the Dover area. We have two choices in terms of area; the East Coast and the Dover area pending on school availability. I have some friends who are staying in the East Coast area and heard a lot about it, so I have picked up a few hints on where to look there. However, I am not familiar with the Dover area at all. Any suggestions on what areas around Dover are good for a small family and decently priced relatively new condo, 3-4 bed, around $5-6k? I know there are a lot of educational facilities in that area. Is it better to stay away from the main campuses and live slightly further away, say Buona Vista, etc. ? Any suggestion will be much appreciated.

dover and buona vista is walking distance. you also get the wet market in ghim moh and also walking distance to holland village. you are getting lots of shops, food stalls and transport around that area.

It will depends on what type of schools you are looking for. You may also wish to consider the budget for your stay.

dover is a fabulous place to stay! much much better than east coast i reckon. Good location, good eateries around and good schools all around.

Any condo to recommend around Dover?

I have seen Heritage and Dover Park View, both nice but a little old. We are looking for 3 bd with a budget hopefully under 4000

Also, if i plan to move in around mid Jan, is it too early now to negotiate a lease? What would be a more appropriate time?

Thanks
