Great View, Excellent Amenities, Some Noise
The noise level varies greatly depending on where you are staying. This is primarily because of the MRT track that runs very close to the development, especially blocks 22 and 24. All 2 bedroom units face the track instead of Little Guilin, so noise is definitely a problem. The 3 bedrooms faces the pool, away from the track, so unless you are on a low floor you won't even hear the MRT at all. What you do get is the traffic noise from the main road in front, which is bearable.
Condo facilities are extensive, you name it, they have it. Management team is very effcient and helpful, which makes a big difference to having problems sorted out.
Walking to Gombak station is around 5mins (<400m away), travelling to city takes around 45min door to door, but for peak hours, it depends on how many trains you have to wait for to get on the connecting one at Jurong East. Bus choices are liimited, and you'll probably need to transfer at Bt Batok a
Local markets are excellent. Compared to Bukit Batok's West Mall area, Gombak is more 'heartland', which means more traditional shops, no aircon, cheaper stuff, and being able to pick and choose your fish/meat from the wet market.
Overall, the development is pretty good as long as you pick the right units (ie. high floor, pool facing).
