About This Listing
A spacious and comfortable 3-bedroom condo with fantastic views of the Twin Towers!
This beautiful and roomy condo is on the 31st floor of a new building, with spectacular views of the city. It has 3 bedrooms (1400 square feet), and each bedroom has a queen bed, so it will comfortably sleep 6 people.
The condo is only 5 minutes to KLCC by car/taxi, or 20 minutes by foot. Ampang Park and Kampung Baru LRT stations are also nearby.
Condo facilities include squash courts, an infinity pool, a running track, and a gym. Free, secure parking is also included.
The building next door (Menara TH Selborn) has a food court with delicious, reasonably priced local food.
The condo is stocked with everything you will need for your stay: towels, sheets, plates, utensils, cooking pots, rice cooker, fridge, microwave and stove, LCD flat panel TV and DVD player (with a library of DVDs), hi-speed wi-fi access, basic foodstuffs, shampoo and soap, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, washer and dryer. (And of course it's fully air-conditioned.) There's also a local cellphone, with a pre-paid sim card for your use during your stay. Let me know if you have any special requests, and I'll try to help.
Unfortunately there is a building going up next door, so there is occasionally some noise during the day, and the view is slowly being obstructed. You can see a picture of the construction in the photos.
The place is all yours. My family and I live nearby in case you need anything.
Please note: the check-in and check-out times are only applicable if we have guests coming or going on the same date as you. Otherwise, check-in and check-out times are flexible.
Pool, gym, squash courts, golf putting green, small outdoor running track.
Interaction with Guests
We will not need to meet you at the apartment, as the front door has a security keypad and you'll be able to check-in on your own. (We will send you the code and more instructions before your arrival.) Everything will be ready for you, and if you do need us for anything, we're just a phone call away.
The apartment is located in the Kampung Baru (New Village) area. Despite the name, it is one of the oldest areas of KL! You can get a real feel for Malay village life by walking around Kampung Baru, and exploring its shops and markets. Don't forget to stop at a warong for some nasi lemak and teh tarik!
The closest LRT station (Kampung Baru) is about 15 minutes' walk, and taxis are plentiful just outside the building. The condo is well-situated to access all parts of the city easily.
Taxis can be booked per trip or by the hour (at about RM30/hour within the city). If you have a smartphone, I recommend downloading the MyTeksi app (available free from the usual app stores). This is the easiest and most reliable way to book a taxi in KL.
Other Things to Note
Please look through our guest reviews to get a feel for the apartment, the neighbourhood, and our service. And don't hesitate to drop us a note if you have any questions before booking!
The usual common sense rules of living in a residential building apply. Please keep noise to a minimum (especially after 10 pm), and strictly no smoking in the apartment, please.
Unlike many Airbnb listings, we do not charge a cleaning fee, so your help in minimising the work that needs to be done after you check out is greatly appreciated! Please leave your sheets, pillowcases and towels in the bathtub, and wash any dishes you use. A drying rack and soap are provided.
If you need parking, please inform me ahead of time.
Let me know in advance if you have any special requests, and I'll do my best!
Enjoy your visit to Kuala Lumpur!
It was clean, spacious and comfortable. The manual guide to enter the apartment is clear and easy. Kevin had prepared everything which is out of our expectation and when we requested for table cloth, action was taken immediately (thanks to Roslina).
There is a petrol station with convenience store within 5mins walk and 10mins drive to KLCC (well depends on traffic condition).
We had a very pleasant stay, thanks Kevin :)
this was Our second visit. It felt like home and everything was very easy and well-organised. We look forward to passing through KL next time we are en-route to New Zealand. Thank you.
Last time we passed through KL Kevin's place was booked. We are so glad to have had the chance to come again. The apartment is wonderful and Kevin made it very easy. All the superlative reviews are entirely justified. We felt very comfortable and are looking forward to our next visit (already booked). Thanks.
A very spacious flat close to KLCC still with a marvelous view -
unfortunately the flat was not too clean....and not realy well looked after. There was a real bad smell in the master bedroom and the bathroom... it needs some attention..... !
Communication was very good.. :-) Kevin provided a local mobile phone, cold drinks in the fridge and some food which was very kind. The shop on the ground floor was closed so there was no urgent need to find a supermarket close by....
There is also a great pool with a stunning view.... And gym...
We were sorry to hear that Ursula found our apartment not too clean. We try to do a thorough job, but obviously we overlooked something. Apologies for that.
Ursula is correct that the bathroom attached to the master bedroom does sometimes have a bad smell. This is a defect in the plumbing throughout the whole building that happens when the pipes get dry. We wish she had let us know right away, as the problem is easily solved by running water through the floor drain. We could have saved her a few days of unpleasant smells with this simple solution, had she dropped us a note during her stay to let us know.
We are not sure how to understand "not really well looked after". If there were specific concerns about sheets, towels, furniture, or anything else we would have welcomed the chance to fix the problem immediately, had she let us know. In any case, we will do our best in the future to continue to keep our guests as happy as possible!
Kevin's apartment is very clean. He provids all what we need especially the food. We can do some cooking and made we feel at our own house. The guards working on the condon are very kind and polite. The apartment is close to KLCC. By taxi 5-10minutes depend on the traffic. Sometime we walk home from the LRT station. It need 20minutes you can find some old houses of Malaysia. Next time if we go to KL, we will go there again.
The apartment was very comfortable and we felt like we were at home. It had everything we needed and the security was great. Kevin was an excellent host and we had the most relaxing holiday.
