Al Khobar Compounds

Post Posted: Thu Jan 31, 2008 5:27 am

Does anyone know how much it costs to rent a basic 3 bdr in the Al Bustan or Zamil Village compounds in Al Khobar. I am trying to negotiate a contract and feel like I'm doing this blind. Property management at Al Bustan, which is my first choice, is out of the office until Feb. 16, so any help from someone actually living there or who has lived there recently would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Zamil 3bdr basic Villa approx 190.000 SAR, 3bdr basic Appt. approx 160.000

(Former) Al Bustan now Oasis Garden, belongs to the Saad Group anyway, they will get better rates

I would suggest live in Al khobar during the week but go to Bahrain at the weekends. That is what I did. It is too much hassle and expense to commute daily.

The Oasis Gardens Compound - Do not live here.
This compound has several coyote (wild dogs) like dogs living with residence on the compound. There have been numerous attacks on humans and dogs and cats. I would recommend if you have small children or any type of animal, this isn't the compound for you. I would suggest living on another compound to avoid being attacked. Management is aware of these dogs but refuses to have these dogs removed from the compound. Why would you want to live on a compound where wild dogs are permitted to stay after they have bitten humans and other domesticated animals. This compound is not recommend until it's safe for animals and humans.

Hi melissanest, I totally agree with what you are saying, however I stayed well clear of the compounds as I arrived 9 months after they had been targeted by terrorist and everybody left. I felt less conspicuous and safer on the 6 floor of a hotel, but of course you never know. As things are starting to hot up in the region, you need to think carefully as to where you should stay.
