Kuala Lumpur Villas

Welcome to Kuala Lumpur! We've created a collection of beautiful apartments for you to rent in Kuala Lumpur.

Where did all the villas go?

You might be surprised by the lack of villas in Kuala Lumpur.

When you think of homes in the tropics, you probably think of open air living, allowing the breeze to gently through.

That's one thing people love about villas. The connection with the outdoors.

You'll find villas in Thailand, Indonesia and the islands of Malaysia.

But not in Kuala Lumpur.

Because of the tropical heat and humidity, people prefer to stay inside. These days, most Malaysians use air conditioning to stay cool. As Lee Kwan Yew famously said:

Air conditioning is the greatest invention of the 20th century.

You may challenge that, but there is no denying the addiction of Malaysians (and Singaporeans) to air con.

That's why buildings in Kuala Lumpur are designed around closed spaces. And they have been for decades.

KL still has plenty to offer.

Floor-to-ceiling windows, 12 foot ceilings, breathtaking city views. Just some of the typical features of contemporary KL homes.

And that's just the start.

Wait until you see the architecture of Kuala Lumpur's latest developments. The city has had grand visions since even before the iconic Petronas Twin Towers were crowned the worlds tallest buildings in 1999. The giant, marble lined Pavilion shopping centre. The expanse of the multi- award winning KLIA airport. The

It's not just the public buildings.

Condominiums are where its at.

Most young Malaysian's aspire to live in a condominium. Built between 20 and 40 storeys high, they have shared facilities including swimming pools, gyms, tennis and squash courts, outdoor spaces and private parking. They provide high quality living at affordable an price.

They're perfect for convenient and comfortable city living, so keep them in mind for your accommodation in Kuala Lumpur.

But if it's a villa you're after...

The closest thing to a villa.

For privacy and space, there are still wonderful properties around town. Just be prepared to pay a premium.

Malaysians call it "landed property". Quite simply, property that is built on its own land, not shared with others.

Consider these locations around town:

  • Bukit Tunku - the longest established neighbourhood for large private properties with their own grounds (also known as Kenny Hills). Close to the city centre yet peaceful and with some of the original rainforest still intact.
  • Bangsar - the trendiest part of town, with a mixture of terraced and detached homes. A short distance to cafes, bars and restaurants.
  • Ukay Heights - further from town but all around this area are many beautiful detached homes.

Coming on a short stay? Don't get your hopes up. Most of these properties are only available for long term rental of 6 or 12+ months.

It's rare to find such landed properties available for a week or two. Search the web and see what you find.

Good luck and if you discover a gem, please let us know and we'll list it here.

To summarise...

The buzzing city of Kuala Lumpur is not the spot to find idyllic tropical villas but you can get a suitable city equivalent. There are plenty of inspirational homes, both in condominiums and as private residences.

Consider how you intend to get around town (car, taxi, train). Consider whether you want local shops and restaurants. That'll help you choose a shortlist of suitable areas.

Then look at the facilities you need and the price you'd like to pay.

Kuala Lumpur is bustling with activity and packed with beautiful homes.
