Q: What is it like to live in Creek Vista?

Creek vista is a privilege. A unique project, one of its own kind. A project that will set standards for the future projects to come. Not only that the apartments are spacious and stylish but also they are built with keeping in mind the highest security measures.
In Karachi your primary concern is security, this project attempts to elevate that concern, with the security provided by the DHA services, a subsidiary of DHA Karachi, and most sensitive electronic security system.
Creek Vista permits you to spend same time with family or engage in activities that are more productive than thinking and ensuring your supply of water tankers, mocking KESC for load shedding, arranging Petrol/Diesel for your generators or looking for an absent gatekeeper.
It permits to let your children go downstairs without being worried about rushing cars or unpredictable situation of Karachi.

The project is located right in front of DHA Golf club on khayaban-e-shaheen.

Q: Is Creek Vista owned by DHA?

No, all apartments in Creek Vista are now private property. Although management, maintenance, security, and property transfer is the responsibility of DHA Karachi.

Q: Why do you suggest an apartment over a house? Especially when the price is almost as much as of a house?

In Karachi your primary concern is security. Security for yourself and your family. Creek Vista eliminates that concern. Creek Vista security is provided by DHA services, which is a subsidiary of DHA Karachi, along with a highly sensitive electronic security system. The professional security guards of DHA look after the security of Creek Vista apartments. More than over 40 guards are present all the time looking after the project 24 hours round the clock. The vigilance car also patrols the vicinity on regular basis. Beside that there are receptionists, CCTV and security devices. Kindly see security features for detail.

Q: What about "zameen bi apani, aur chaat bi apani" concept?

Well that concept has faded away pretty much. That�s why the prices of good projects are almost equal to a moderately built 500 hundred yard bungalow situated in defense. In a bungalow you have to look after the house and as well as the security. Yes you can hire guards day/night but most of the time those same guards are involved in a security breach in form of theft or burglary.

Q: I am used to living in bunglows you think i will adjust?

I have no doubt about that. My personal experience is the same. I was living in a 500 yards bungalow and personally shifted to vista because of security concern. And I am completely satisfied. I have some clients who have shifted here from 1000 yards bungalows and they are satisfied as well with their right selection.

Q: What about the commute? It is safe?

The best way to answer such a question is to find the crime rate on khayaban-e-shaheen. Not even once anything like this has happened.

It would be very foolish of anyone to loot someone on a main khyaban especially when the traffic is there even at 2 am at night.
