Nusa Idaman in Nusajaya — not bad at all

Posted in Musings tagged , , , , at 12:17 am by myrlinn

Last Sunday, we had the opportunity to go check out more properties in Johor, this time courtesy of UEM, which organised a Hari Raya Open House at Nusajaya Centre complete with convenient pick-up from Jurong Point (well, convenient for us, anyway, since we live nearby). 

Quite a bit of effort had obviously been made. Food was plentiful — noodles, satay, lemang, rendang, desserts. They even laid on live singing. And of course there were booths displaying their various developments. 

In addition to group tours providing an overview of Nusajaya, visitors could sign up to be taken to specific developments and showhouses. Just a slight criticism: They should have stationed sales staff at the show houses. Every time we had a query, we were asked to take it up with the sales and marketing staff back at Nusajaya Centre.

The developments we looked at:

 The show house for the NUSA IDAMAN “Courtyard Homes” was shown to us as part of the general overview tour of Nusajaya. We found out later that this particular phase is virtually sold out. Still, if this  is typical of homes in Nusa Idaman, I must say I find it quite attractive. The home is spacious with living, dining and kitchen having an open feel. There is also a decent-sized bedroom on the ground floor for elderly family members, or for guests. Certainly a development worth checking out for those interested in medium-cost housing (price starts  RM325K from what  we were told).

Courtyard Home - bathroom

Courtyard Homes showhouse – bathroom [Quick note: The bathroom was interesting to me because I thought it was immediately revealing of the fact that this is a medium-cost development. Seems to me that the developer could have done a better job with tiles/fittings to give a classier feel.  ]




What’s also positive about Nusa Idaman is that it is not far from amenities. There’s a large shopping mall not too far away in Bukit Indah, and I could see established shops and businesses along the road to this development.

I would still be cautious about buying though. Apparently, quite a large percentage of homes have been sold to Singaporeans. Does that mean that many of the homes will remain vacant, or come to life only on weekends? I like quiet, but will it be too quiet? Also, given the large number of homes being built in Nusajaya, it may be difficult to resell the house later on if you change your mind about staying there.

Moving to EAST LEDANG, their upscale development, bungalows start at RM 2.1 million, and twin villas start from RM 1.1 million.  Definitely luxurious, though it looks to me like the homes are built very close together — small garden spaces. Best part for me were the master bedrooms which were generally large, with dressing rooms and good-sized bathrooms. Nice!

And… since the show units for UJANA executive apartments were just across the road from Nusajaya Centre where the Open House was held, we thought we might as well have a quick look as well. Not very impressive. The interior design was  generic, like stepping into a hotel room. And there was nothing unique in the way the apartments were laid out as well.
Having said that, I must say that I immediately liked the Type B unit (one bedroom + one study).  It feels roomy and comfy,  ideal for singles.  Price: RM290K – 330K. Maintenance: about RM360 per month.

    Recently i bought a house at Nusa Idaman,but i regret with the standard of the material used.
    Value for the price u paid,i would give around 30%.
    Crack on the wall,
    Water leaking from the roof.
    Poor plastering of the Wall,particularly plug point area.
    Security guards not in proper discipline.
    And more to said.
    Pls do a research with the current occuplying resident before purchasing a unit.

    Hi Anonymous,

    That particular phase is called “Courtyard Home” all intermediate houses is attached with indoor courtyard (garden). Covering is not necessary…

  14. myricfinas said,

  15. myricfinas said,

    hai..btw..if we already started to stay there and we got no transport..any idea whether is it safe for us to call a taxi there to fetch us .

    • ayu said,

      Nusa Idaman have apply with the public transportation, due to small population by now, the bus has not go in yet.

      By the way, u can have the Taxi number from Jusco Bukit Indah where there’s have many taxi there. I think the cost should be less then RM10 (if just from Jusco Bkt Indah to Nusa idaman)

  16. ayu said,

    Hai all,

    Waaah got some feedback here. =)
    I’m Ayu.. maybe some of the house owner know me. 🙂
    please let me know if u all have any enquirers bout Nusa Idaman.
    I’ll try to answer.. but still the Q in beyond my limit.

    By the way, Nusa Idaman will launch new courtyard due to high demand for this type of property.

    Have a nice day.

  18. Ms_Chong said,

    Hello everybody,
    I wish to sell my nusa idaman house at precint 5. The environment here is very nice. Just that we find it a bit far away from my mother’s house at Skudai area. Every morning we have to send my daugther to my mother’s house and fetch her back at night. So if possible, we wish to buy a new house nearer to my mother’s house.

    If anyone is interested, please contact me at +65-92960024 or +6012-7705296.

    Have a good day!
    Ms Chong.

    Avoid getting house from Nusa Idaman, especially new house. They have poor management and always make empty promise. We had bad experience dealing with them! AVOID NUSA IDAMAN HOUSE!!!

  20. Sze said,

    Hi all,

    I have recently shifted (May) to my unit – Courtyard Precint 6B. So far there is no major problem, the developers are quick to respond to my query and rectify the problems immediately.

    At this moment I am happy & glad that I have bought a unit there but hope something can be done about the stray dogs.

    Hi Ayu, what can the developers do about the stray dogs?

    oh ya, last Sat, a friend of mine bought precint 7, at rm588K


  21. shah said,

    Still waiting for the keys (Phase 5A). Does anybody knows when the developer will hand over the keys?

  22. sra said,

    Hi Ayu,

    I am looking ard to buy a unit.
