What is your housing like? What are typical housing sizes, locations, and commute times for expatriates?

Our house was great, lots of space, BBQ area, swimming Pool and a lovely garden. The only bad thing was the parking space. Very narrow for our car. We lived in Cite Millenium but there is Cite Oua ou La Caisse which is where the majority of the expats or other diplomats live. My husband's commute was 10 minutes from home to the embassy. - Sep 27, 2017
Most embassy staff live in a nice gated community five minutes from the Embassy. Houses are large, with walled gardens. - Aug 13, 2015
Government furnished. Typical commute time can be extremely difficult at times. - May 29, 2014
most of USG employees live in La Casse and about five people live outside of La Casse - Mar 27, 2011
