FACILITIES IN MOI CITY HOME
Surprisingly, MOI City Home has complete facilities for residents to enjoy. If you have decided to live in this apartment, these facilities are available for you
1. Swimming Pool
MOI City Home has large outdoor swimming pool spanning from Hawaiian Bay to Manhattan Bay tower. Residents of all towers can swim in this 1,2 meters depth of pool. Although it is an outdoor swimming pool, the water temperature is rather cold. The pool is also encircled by plants and shady trees, making the environment fresh and nice.
Swimming pool in MOI City Home is quite different from other pool in Jakarta’s apartment. The shape resembled a water park that featured water slides and water shower. Various ornaments like small rock, turtle figurine and sculpture can also be found near the pool. The pool architecture reminds me of European architecture and it is classy.
2. Children’s Swimming Pool
Not far from adult swimming pool, there is a children swimming pool that is only 0,6 meters depth. Here your children swim freely and play with save water slide. Since there is no lifeguard nearby, you should keep an eye on your kids while they were playing.
3. Kid’s Playground
Stay at the same floor as swimming pool, kid’s playground is the next entertainment for your kid’s to play with. It has complete rides start from slide ride, swing ride and teeter-tooter. However, as you can see from the picture above, the slide ride is currently under development. I can’t get enough information why it was malfunction. But other rides were fine.
Gym in MOI City Home occupied a single room in front of middle-pool. Unfortunately, I cannot get in to the gym due to exclusive access this gym had. It seems like residents should enroll gym membership prior to use gym equipment.
5. Tennis Court
Other sport facility at MOI City Home is tennis court. It is an outdoor tennis court encircled by wire fence. Since the tennis net is already provided, you just need to bring your racquette and racquette ball to play.
6. Basketball Court
If your hobby is playing basketball, you can go downstairs and leverage your skill in basketball court at ground floor. However, there is only a single ring available, so it is not compatible for team match. You can beat your friend in one on one game or practice by yourself in this court.
7. Mini Mart
Residents who were tired after swimming and playing sport can purchase some snacks and mineral water at mini mart that located on the ground floor. Some items like coffee, milk, sausage and other food is also available in this mini mart.
Don’t have time to do your own laundry? No problem, there is a laundry below ground floor. Residents can deliver their dirty clothes to this laundry and then wait until it’s done.
Most of units leased by MOI City Home are studio and 2BR types. Amenities in studio unit includes 1 bathroom, kitchen, dining set and access card. For 2BR, the amenities include AC, hot water tap, dining set, 1 bathroom, access card, kitchen, refrigerator and television. Apartment official also equipped those two units with internet.
Both studio and 2BR units have minimalist size compare to other apartment on the same level in Jakarta. The size of studio unit in MOI City Home is 37 sqm and for 2BR unit, the size is 45 sqm. In terms of rental price, 2BR is more expensive than studio unit. The price of 2BR unit is Rp 5.420.000 ($ 383) per month, when studio unit is Rp 4.590.000 ($ 349) per month.
2BR unit in MOI City Home doesn’t have spacious room, but it is comfortable enough for family to live together. Living room and kitchen were compacted into single room, separated by a long cabinet. The window in living room is large enough to allow sunshine to come in. Thus brightness level inside the unit is very good.
One bedroom that is meant for couple has wide size. For kids, there is smaller room located beside the bath room. Although the kids bedroom is quite small, I can feel homey ambiance inside. I think kids would love living here.
When I was arrived at Hawaiian Bay, I experienced breezy atmosphere outside apartment. This may due to the location of apartment that is not far from north-coast. The apartment lobby is rather small. You may smell unpleasant odor in the lobby. I don’t know where the smell comes from, but as far as I know, the lobby gate was closed tightly and there was no trash bin inside.
After I ascending the floor, the smell was gone. There were not many residents walking through corridor. The interior is plain and not interesting. It is resembled corridor in government hospital, narrow, dark and uncompelling. Despite run-of-the-mill interior, there were many expatriates from Latin America, Africa and Europe who occupied this apartment. You can find more of them on facility floor.
On the west side of apartment, there is Sunter River. You could see the river from your unit if it is facing westward. The water is green, yet not contaminated by any dangerous substance. When rainy season comes, residents should be more careful, as some area surrounding the river might be flooded.
