Default Moving to Kuching in 2022

Hello All, Our family will be moving to Kuching from UK in 2022 (myself,wife,daughter and large Black Labrador). We have identified a good school in the North Bank area but I would like guidance re where to rent a house. My wife does not drive and wants to be able to walk to shops and be semi independent. It seems to me that most options only relate to condos which won't work because of our large dog. Are there any good residential areas very close to malls that have houses for rent? Any guidance appreciated.

Hi Defender,

Were you looking at the Tunku Putra School? If so it has moved to South Kuching from North of the River (Petrajaya). So don't be confused by the name. See the map below. It's actually just west of the Tabuan branch of the Sarawak River. It's on the Eastern Side of Kuching near the expressway toward Samarahan (where UNIMAS University is located).

I'm a pedestrian and tend to walk when shops are when 1 km, but greater Kuching is accessible by cheap GRAB "taxis" (the equivalent is Uber, elsewhere). Costs run anywhere from RM5 to RM 20 for longer trips (e.g. downtown from the airport). The area you are talking about isn't all that close to the older downtown/waterfront, but that area doesn't have a lot of homes with yards.

You are correct about dogs not generally being acceptable in Condos. Anything with reference to Stutong or Tabuan would be in that neck of the woods. It's near Markets (Giant, Stutong Wet Market) , Malls (Vivacity), the Kuching Specialist Hospital and a Nature Park that is well used by joggers, strollers, and has some wildlife (birds, squirrels, treeshrews). Other Residential areas near Malls are the neighbourhoods associated with the name "Kenny" (near the city One Megamall) and Kenyalang /Bampfylde Hts. (near The Spring).

You'd probably want to search https://www.mudah.my
or https://www.propertyguru.com.my/ for bungalows.
