Seasons Villa in Pudong

Postby Fattiebunny » Tue Nov 28, 2006 11:49 pm

We are relocating from Singapore to Shanghai by Apr 07, and are sourcing for accomodation in Pudong Area. We are a family of three with a two and a half year old daugther.

We are used to living in an apartment, and would like to find out more about Seasons Villa in Pudong.

Would anyone know how much it cost to rent a 3-bedroom apartment or townhouse there? Any pros and cons living in an apartment vis-a-vis townhouse?

Thanks!

When we were living there it was US$3.000 for a 3 bedroom apt.
Try to get the new ones (Tower 10,11,12), because I have friends living in the old ones, they aren't so good and are a little smaller.
The small and old townhouses are about US$4.000 and they are smaller than the apt., but have a garden.
Is a very convenient place to live in the first year here...

I'm teaching in Season Villas and even the new towers have problems with windows that are not completely straight and they try to blame the tenant if there is water damage to the walls!

How I said, it's a convenient place to live in the first year...
The house is ok for one year, after that, eveything starts to crap, falling down, stop working...
Ok, they come after 5 minutes you called and fix it, but...
But the conveniences there are great, like shuttle bus, that small Pines inside, beauty salloon (former mini-market and sallon were better than now!), a lot of differences classes, like Yoga,chinese,english,Tai-chi,etc.
And if you don't know any chinese, at least, some staff can speak a kind of english...
