I thank you for your business which has sustained the operations of http://www.asiahomes.com.  It is just not practical to email images to individuals. 

I have commissioned this report from a house-hunting visit with an expat couple, no children, a budget of $3,000 - $4,000, looking for houses with garden.  

The District 21 Burgundy Hill houses typifies what a luxurious interior of a house will look like.  A one-year old Burgundy Drive semi-detached with quality finishes rents for a low $3,800 because it is in the wrong location.  Otherwise, its rent will be $6,000 if it is located in Districts 9, 10 and 11.  All units described below should have cable TV connections.
