The space

Tropical resort style living in the city space. Go back in time into the history of Singapore and experience its colonial glamour...

*Note: Please send message to check availability before making a booking.


THE HOUSE

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 butterflies play, as if time has stopped to let us smell the flowers.

* Singapore is a big city and never truly sleeps. We are located close to Alexandra road which is very convenient for transport but it will not be completely quiet at night.

Staying at with Gijs and Ting was a lovely experience! The house was beautiful, especially the gardens, and they helped me arrange my stay despite the short notice. They were both very friendly and they also gave me some sightseeing tips! I didn't stay very long, but I would definitely do it again.

Great place. A colonial house in the middle of the city. Great convenience in position, between Kent ridge area and marina bay. Very well linked with buses, and at walking distance from a shopping center (food market, 7eleven, supermarket, some restaurants) and including IKEA. Being near to Alexandra road you can have some noise from the street. Being a colonial house bathroom and kitchen are accessible from the open patio. If you mind it do not book. Great hospitality from Chris. Everybody in the house was helpful with suggestions and indications. I will be back there next time

I had a comfortable stay at Chris' place. Never got a chance to meet him but Erly took care of everything. Paula is lovely, takes time to get used to your presence :) On the room front, fairly comfortable and clean. If you're okay with washroom being outside the room then no issues. Thanks for hosting, Chris!

Chris was very helpful and this place is just great for kids with the pool and the large garden. There is a bit of noise from the street near by but you get used to it. A unique and beautiful bungalow!

As someone who has lived inSingapore for 8 years and familiar with the city, Gijs&Ting's place is truly such a hidden gem. It's nothing like Singapore hustle & bustle. I love the colonial house, the art, decor and furniture choices, very artsy! Not forgetting that they are such a helpful host, answering all of my questions before the trip. Too bad our schedule was too pack and we couldn't spend more time with them. Their maid , Ely , was very helpful as well. Location wise, the buses from the nearest bus top could get you almost anywhere you'd need, orchard, holland V, Vivo, so we'll connected. It'll be perfect if the house isn't too near to the main road that could get quite busy. But we weren't light sleepers so we had good rest, anyway some airplane earplugs would do the trick ;)

Just as described! Gijs was an amenable host who helped us to orientate into Singapore. We'd had a rough day coming from KL and wanted some quiet downtime, which we got, with the distraction of Paula the Dog, and Dash the Cat. We were upgraded to the antique room which was spacious and very pleasant. Supermarkets are never far away in Singapore so there were no problems providing ourselves with breakfasts and snacks, using the family kitchen and a shelf in the fridge. Eateries abound and we discovered that the #120 bus took us from outside the premises (on Alexandra Rd) to Redhill station, from where we could access all of Singapore's delights. Hort Park is next door.

We had a great stay at their premises in Singapore. Gijs and Ting are really great hosts and we felt more than being at home and welcomed. With the Maid Ella as well as Paula the dog and Dash the cat, we had a great company. Whenever we will go back to Singapore, we will definitely try to stay there again. Very well maintained and nice premises and very comfortable to stay. And the location is also very convenient to access the various places in Singapore. Bus stops are also right in front the house and next MRT station is only 5 Minutes away by bus. Easy! HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE! Best regards Andreas & Barbara
