    Anyone received call from iSantorini saying that they need to process your cheque now and proceed with stamping because of the due date (1st June).
    I applied for MyDeposit and I told them to hold it off first. They insist and said can’t be done.

    我真的很不满意ideal的服务人员态度!粗俗没教养!我们现在买的是屋子不是买豆腐ok?问得详细是我们消费者该有的权利。每一个给的回复不一样,那就算了。但至少回答的时候可以客气点和礼貌点吗?什么叫做麻烦你们?你们很不得空,你也是打工我们也懂。我们对你们的态度也是客客气气的,服务人员如果EQ真的那么低的话,我相信服务业真的不适合你。你应该回家坐在家里服务你先生就好。

    @newbuyer

    Haha, agree with you that the sales staff sucks. Unlike E&O and EcoWorld, very professional sales team. But of course, their property price also very “professional”, at the end of the day, there’s no free lunch, you’d have to end up paying for it. The choice is yours, really. You go EcoWorld lah, some more serve cappuccinos and cookies.

    May 25th, 2016 at 15:30 | #11

    Haha like u go pasar malam, u want buy just buy or dont ask many, u go shopping mall, promoter serve u till paiseh, thats y same thing put at pasar malam cheaper than shopping mall like I Santorini sale at pasar malam, E&O and Ecoworld sale at shopping mall.

    May 25th, 2016 at 17:12 | #12

    @Here

    Agree with you. Same bowl of laksa with same ingredients, pasar malam –> RM3, shopping mall –> RM12. Sure, we all understand that the operator at the shopping mall has to pay hefty rental to our dear Sporean friend “CapitaMalls”. That’s why, no free lunch. And by the way, the best laksa available in Penang is located just right next to a wet market by the road side right in front of the drain. Great food minus the frills.

    DO you guys know that the leasehold remaining period is until 2100 years??? Which means left only 84 years. I am shocked when I hear this and developer will not renew it upon completion of the project. Are you guys happy about this or should we push developer to renew it for all buyers??

    May 28th, 2016 at 09:21 | #25

    Considering with the location vs price range, leasehold is still a good deal. I-Santorini is affordable housing which the idea is mainly for 1st house owner and home stay concept. If freehold title is so important to you which i believe investor concern the MOST, there is always an open option to seek for other freehold u/c project like Tamarind or 18 East.

  26. Gago
    May 28th, 2016 at 11:24 | #26

    Leasehold I think ok but why not starts new at 99 years?

  27. Gago
    May 28th, 2016 at 11:38 | #27

    By another 20 years, you will have problem selling property as bank does not give out loan to leasehold < 60 years I think. Happening soon right if you take this view.

  28. There
    May 28th, 2016 at 11:59 | #28

    I agree with Gago.

  29. Phang
    May 28th, 2016 at 14:56 | #29

    Freehold is definitely better.If you buy a property and after sometime,you begin to like that location and wish to stay long term for good,then Freehold is important.The value of your house will likely appreciate.

  30. magic
    May 30th, 2016 at 12:47 | #30

    @Phang,

    To me, freehold/leasehold is not the issue, Spore and KL is very common now, people fear because they are not used to it, but really, nothing to fear, as good as freehold.

    A more interesting thing that I’d like to see from this project is how will it change the people’s lifestyle. Increasingly home buyers in the world’s most liveable cities like Melbourne, Sydney, Vancouver etc are looking for apartments which have high “walkability” score. A typical walkable neighbourhood has a “center”, enough residents around for businesses to flourish and for frequent public transport, good and plenty of public place for gathering, buildings built close to streets with good pedestrain walkways and bicycle tracks etc.

    I see good potential from what Santorini has, but the state gov has to put in the final touches to strongly encourage and promote walkable neighbourhoods. Again, whether they are really going to “UBAH” things, or just paying lip service, we shall see.

    .. leasehold. . Freehold…
    Are you guys living more than 100 years?
    Are you going to leave this house for your children ?
    If no. Why care? Unless you want rumah nenek moyang but it’s a high rise. Lifespan is 50 years.

  34. BY
    May 31st, 2016 at 00:31 | #34

    I think you din get it. Unless subsale by cash, leasehold house left 60 years is difficult to do subsale because no bank will approve loan. Imagine what will happen to you at that time when you really need money but you are unable to sell off your house.

  35. Macha
    May 31st, 2016 at 08:17 | #35

    Agree, the problem with leasehold is that the value greatly depreciates when your lease have less than 60 years left, and you will have difficulty getting a buyer. There are already a few examples of leasehold landed property on the island selling around 500k or less, while other landed are worth at least 1 million. Unless you intend to stay at the same place till you die, then it makes no difference, but what about your children?

  36. Hello
    May 31st, 2016 at 09:06 | #36

    @BY
    You straight to the point. Feel so funny when Magic & Ivan555 just plan to let I-santorini to stay by grand grand children when reaching year 2100 and thought zero possibility for grand grand children to sell their property after 24years from now. (bank reject loan for balance 60years leasehold) p/s: Unless Magic & Ivan555 know they are no more alive when 24years later..

  37. Ralph
    May 31st, 2016 at 09:37 | #37

    No doubt Leasehold title will influence the house value comparing to Freehold (of cause the selling price would be skyhigh as well). But who actually cares about the title if you are buying for your own stay??
    Even Leasehold with 80 years balance doesn’t mean that after 2100 you will be homeless immediately. We can always renew the lease period or continue to stay until when the government wanted that leasehold land for commercial use, please take note even with freehold title the government has the same right to do so, just the way of compensation different. But I observe the surrounding land at STP most are freehold (except jazz), so the possibility that government takeover that only piece of land for commercial use in future (80 years later) is low.
    Just my 2 cent of opinion, sorry if any mistake…

  38. Gago
    May 31st, 2016 at 16:09 | #38

    May I suggest that we voice out our concern of non renewal of the leasehold to 99 years by developer upon completion? Together we will make an impact. For whatever reason you have.

  39. balitung
    May 31st, 2016 at 18:04 | #39

    @Gago

    If I were you, I would go and ask state gov to renew the lease, instead of developer. This is suppose to be a state initiative after all, and it’s so easy for the state to extend the lease, just a phone call to the state land office.

  40. Phang
    May 31st, 2016 at 21:09 | #40

    Leasehold or Freehold no big issue alright but certainly there are differences in between them.The former have some restrictions compared to the later but for this fantastic location I wouldn’t mind whatever it is.

    For me, leasthold or freehold is not a big concern. We cant live that long in this earth. After leasthold aure will be compensation for our next genaration. We concern about now than next generation. If can afford higher price property,of cause we can have alot of option for our consideration. But if u want to get a property at this good location. This is the only option. If we think in long term else. This project is a good investment. Now that area condominium rental is around Rm1300-1600. After 10 years. What will the rental price be? If after 10years. The rental can go up to rm2000-3000. Will investor consider? Now the mantainance fee is around Rm120. Can we expect rm120 for this kind of facilities? I dont thinks so. No affence.

    Sea view for all blocks will be blocked by existing or future buildings except a certain part of Block C. Having said that there may be gap between buildings which allows sea view but nobody can guarantee that. If it happened, considers it durian runtuh.

    To gain seaview, you must pick those units above 24th floor. Then, it wont be blocked by Breeza. Anyhow, those high floor units mostly sold out, only remain lower floor. Beware that Block C has 22 units in one floor, while Blocks A and B just have 18 units in one floor.

    Thank you for your well intended advice. But I think you’ve got your facts slightly off the mark. Block A units 1-10 do not face west, but actually face south-west, inclining towards south. As you may or may not know, the sun does not always set exactly west everyday of the year. It moves from south-west to west to north-west back to west and then to south-west. The sun sets at south-west only a few days in a year.

    So for units 1-10, you will not get any direct sunlight at all from the west-setting sun over 8-10 months in a year. Even during the months when the sun is setting in the south-west area, direct sunlight would be blocked by Brezza during the time of the day when the sun is low enough to shine horizontally into units 1-10 (around 5pm onwards).

    My opinion is, these Block A units 1-10 are still the best option, considering you get Gurney view, pool view (at Brezza) + breathtaking seaview by the side windows for unit-1 (very limited cornet units).

    @Bruce

    In fact, whether you’re higher or lower than Brezza, you won’t get a straight “12 o’clock” gurney view anyway, as all the units are facing Tanjung Tokong, not Gurney. In order to see gurney, you will have to tilt 45 degrees to the left, then you see the fabulous gurney coastline. So, you still have units lower than brezza (eg. units 1-3) that have as good a view as high units, if not better.

    @Lini
    Avoid unit 10 because side wall will be affected by the sun. Very hot. I think unit 1,2 and 3 are the best.

    Good analysis. No doubt that the view is very nice especially the floor above 24th which wont block by The Brezza. I guess all units from number 1-10 will have nice city or seaview. As per my current experience on difficulty in renting out the condo which facing west-north, I will try to avoid any west direction. Just my opinion. Nowadays, tenant is very choosy…especially angmo.

    Thus, I choose the middle floor facing pool view. The Santorini layout pool view could be very nice too.

    Have you checked with Ideal if some of units of block A unit 1- 10 are blocked by The Breeze. Meaning no seaview or cityview at all.

    To gain seaview, you must pick those units above 24th floor. Then, it wont be blocked by Breeza. Anyhow, those high floor units mostly sold out, only remain lower floor. Beware that Block C has 22 units in one floor, while Blocks A and B just have 18 units in one floor.

    I just book a unit at Tower B, 25th floor unit-2. I should able to enjoy the seaview?
    Afternoon will be very hot for this unit? I hope Tower A can help me block some sun.

    I personally feel 448k package come 3 CP although middle units 4 to 15 is more worth than 460k package come with 2 CP only for units 1 to 3 & 16 to 18 although slightly corner.

    According to Ideal, 1 CP cost RM 18k.

    You may need to confirm with agent/ideal again, as understood from them that those corner units highlighted in yellow only possibly get seaview, it was measured and estimated by architect. From the chart, it seems Tower B units 1 and 2 highlighted in yellow only. Pls double confirm to avoid disappointment later.

    Mines one is BR+0.41%. Before Affin revised rate on 19th July, BR is 3.99%, which mean rate=3.99+0.41=4.4%. After 19th July, BR is revised to 3.80%, which mean effective rate is 3.8+0.41=4.21%

    FB is a very dangerous tool, if you’re not tech savvy enough (it’s OK to be not tech savvy), you should think twice using it. Anyone could just create any profile with anyone’s photo, cut and paste from the internet, with any phone number (pre-paid line without any proper registration), with just any free email (yahoo, gmail with fake identities). The good news is, you could live a perfectly happy life without FB.

    @Lol
    Someone’s loan got rejected and I so happen to visit their sales gallery and took it up. Yeah u it 1 and 2 tower A is the best for sea view. I don’t have much option left when I went there, so the best available unit is unit 8 of tower A. So I went to the site nearby to get an idea of the view and the balcony faces brezza Swimming pool and if I look left it faces Millrow villas. I guess it is ok. The reason why I didn’t choose facing the pool is because the distance between tower A and B is very near and when you look at your balcony you will look into the neighbors and it could be noisy as well from the pool area. Only tower A faces the service road along Brezza and that is easily twice the distance between tower A and tower B or tower B and tower C. So when I look out my unit it will feel very spacious.

    Units 1 & 2 are not facing gurney wharf, it is facing the hills of Mt Erskine, looking straight in the direction of Island Plaza, Precinct 10, Katana, with the hills in the background. In order to look at Gurney, you will have to tilt yourself 45deg to your left, therefore making no difference whether it’s high floor or low, as The Brezza is not blocking the Gurney view. The Brezza is only blocking your Island Plaza view. Of course, unit 1 does have it’s advantage, as it is a corner unit with side windows.

    @WS

    Sorry to say that Block B 35th floor unit 13 is almost one of the worst, as it comes with no seaview, no pool view (due to high floor), not a corner unit, located right next to the lift shaft. If you have not signed the S&P, I suggest you let go of the unit, and choose something better while it’s still available on and off when some buyers couldnt obtain loan.

    1&2 is for sure the best unit, the view is the best.
    I try find many agent but still cant get one.

    Block A facing breeza is the best already. You know why? The distance between block A and Brezza is about 5 lanes inclusive of the Palm trees. You won’t feel that it is too cluttered. When you look out the balcony, the view will be very different. Unit 1 and 2 of block A is the best because there won’t be any high rise blocking its view in the future.

    @Player’s daddy

    If you’re talking about “won’t be any high rise blocking its view”, units 3-10 high floors will also have the same benefit. What I am trying to say is there’s nothing special about unit-2. In fact, units 3-10 low floors will enjoy Brezza’s pool view, as well as gurney view at 45 deg angle, it’s a better option than those at high floors.

    @Player’s daddy

    So I agree with you when you said Block A facing Brezza is the best. No matter low or high floor, and which ever unit, you’ll get something good anyway.

    @rocky
    that is right. Block A is the best already in terms of orientation.

    You say this is because you cant get the high floor right

    Block A facing brezza is the best already. Just visit the site and you will know. You can stand at the site and get a feel of the view and space between block A and brezza. Other blocks will be closely facing each other, the distance is nearer.

    Hi all,

    Very interesting discussion and learn much from all of you.

    I have just booked Block C 13th floor unit 1 (corner unit) (not yet sign SNP). Not much of choice though. My major worries are

    1.super high density 2000+ units. can Ideal be able to manage such a super high density area, and to ensure good maintenance of facilities?
    2. With Tamarind extra 1000 units, and other neighbourhood, this piece of STP will be terribly jammed. I heard at Island Plaza traffic light they will build a fly over bridge. Told by agent. is that true?
    3. my floor is 13th, will it be a “not so good number”? I buy for investment purpose
    4. my unit is corner, at this height can see gurney view?

    Thanks.

    @Leow
    your unit confirmed cannot see sea view. Only units that confirm can see view is block A unit 1 and 2. just fly a drone over and you will get what i mean.

    @Leow

    1. Yes one concern is the high density.

    2. Yes planned flyover at Island Plaza. But it may just move the congestion from there to the Tesco junction. Should create another flyover there as well.

    I passed by the showroom yesterday. Just for sharing and for you who keen to own a unit at Block A, there’s still few units facing pool view. However, those having cheaper price RM448K with 3 Carparks only remain 2 units (unit A-17-15, and A-15-12), the rest are RM460K come with only 2 Carparks. Block B still remain a lot, but all RM460K with 2 carparks only.

    If you’re keen, find your preferred agents and grab the units. If you wish to have a good agent, just let me know, I can provide their contact to you, their service pretty good and helpful.
