Guestroom in tropical Balinese style garden in the city space. Go back in time into the history of Singapore and experience its colonial glamour...

The house sits on private land with a U-shaped building surrounding a decked courtyard. Each leg of the building has one guest room and one bathroom, directly opening to a corridor, providing each guest a sense of privacy. The high ceiling, many windows, and corridor around each building were designed to keep the house cool with an open feel. The roofed sofa with bar area and the tent in the garden next to the swimming pool provide a fantastic outdoor living life style, which is almost impossible to find in Singapore. Spend a lazy morning reading a book in company with a good coffee, while watching butterfli...

Interaction with guests
Our housekeeper is the queen of the house ☺ She takes care of everything, keeps the house clean and organized. Seek her help or advice if you have any request or encounter any problem. Our dog is five years old and very playful. Don’t be fooled by her bark at strangers, she is the sweetest of all and will soon jump on you once you have won her trust. Our cat is also five years old and quite the hunter - he is the cool kid.

About the neighbourhood

The house is part of a conservation estate, a rare gem from colonial times. The houses in the estate are often featured in Singapore’s history and architecture books. 'My fingers trembled with excitement as I began snapping pictures of old Colonial Houses, and the long tarred road ahead decorated with lush, vibrant greenery... and this was truly a sight to behold!' said a Singaporean photographer on his blog.
Getting around

Since the estate claimed the land long before any commercial developers got their chances, it is only a short ride to Orchard Road, the CBD, Sentosa, and the biggest mall in south east Asia - Vivocity. It is right next to Alexandra business district where HP and Intel are located, and close to the NUS and the One-North development. There is a bus stop 100 meters from the house with lots of lines connecting to the city.

-Alexandra business district: 10 minutes walk
-NUS: 7min by taxi, 10 min by bus
-One North: 7min by taxi, 15 min by bus
-Orchard: 10 minutes by taxi, 20min by bus
-CBD (Raffles Place): 15 minutes by taxi, 20min by bus
-Right at the highway exit – 35minutes to the airport
-Short bus ride to 3 subway stations
Car not needed
