We loved living in our apartment for almost 3 years since we moved to Almaty and found it. It was in a complex tucked away towards the Southeast mountains with a stunning mountain view, very comfortable and nice living. We decided we wanted to be bit closer to the city, friends, have more space to host, and a backyard for the kids. The house we are renting now is about twice the size as our apartment was. We moved here on October 1st. It is a bit older and there are LOTS of spiders and spiderwebs, ha, like, weekly, lol. There is of course more upkeep but we really like the space! Here is a video tour I did of our new house- enjoy!
