Guestroom in bungalow near One North, NUS, and next to the Alexandra Technopark. We are located only a short ride to Harbourfront and Sentosa, the CBD, and Orchard Road, in the middle of the Southern Ridges Green Belt.

Your guest room features contemporary Asian antique style with lots of windows, and beautiful garden view. You are also welcome to use our private swimming pool with large garden and outdoor sitting and dining areas.

Long term rental includes cleaning and change of linen.

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 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.

Guest access

The private swimming pool is the perfect place to cool down after exploring the city or coming back from work. The gazebo next to the pool has power sockets so you could work during the day and lights so you can enjoy it at night.
Next to the courtyard there is a sitting area with bar and coffee table. While we are not open for parties, it is a great spot for breakfast or having a drink at the end of the day. The TV at the bar can be connected on request.

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 three 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 three years old and quite the hunter - he is the cool kid.

Great place to stay - very nice room, good kitchen facilities and generally relaxing place to stay. As some have mentioned, it's next to a busy road, but if you are used to city life then you'll automatically block it out. I arrived late and at late notice, Chris arranged everything so that checking-in was no problem at all. Whole stay was problem free. Easy to get anywhere in the city with an uber or a 5 minute bus/15 minute walk to the local metro. If you're an animal lover then you'll love Paula the dog (plus the cat and the terrapin).

This is a very quaint place right next to a very busy expressway. The room is huge and is very comfortable. There's a bus stop right next to it which made it convenient. Its also next to Alexandra Village that has one of the best avocado shakes in Singapore. When we arrived, Erly and Paula (the dog) were very welcoming and gave us directions to places to eat - Alexandra Village, ARC Mall, Anchorpoint etc. The kitchen was also great and had everything we needed to make a quick meal or an evening coffee. There a park right behind (Hort Park) if you're a runner and want to take a quick run. An absolutely perfect home right in the middle of a growing Singapore. The only downside I would say is the very busy road next to this house, with vehicles zooming at high speed in the middle of the night. If you're not a sound sleeper like me, you might have to use earplugs to cut out the sound.

Couldn't have chosen a better place! I recently relocated to Singapore and stayed at Gijs' place. The place it's great, Gijs and Ting are amazing, super welcoming and friendly. I had the opportunity to stay at the house (super nice, felt at home) and at the apartment that couldn't better well located, spacious and with a fantastic view.

Great place with nice and helpful people. Very good value and clean. The hosts gave me advice on where to go, how to travel, and even lent me a card to use on the bus (which I topped up at a 711 before returning).

t was a very unforgettable birthday! When I booked Gijs's house through Airbnb, I didn't know what happened to me, I couldn't make an reservation as previous booking. I tried to call the headquarters of Airbnb in Beijing, Gijs kept in touch with me. He was very patient all the way. He prepared a plastic stool for me to take a shower. The night I checked in was very late, he was still waiting. It was the best gift of birthday I had. Every morning and evening during my staying, he helped me to call a cab and to carry the wheelchair. I appreciate it for the host's sincerity and hostiability! Without mention, Gijs's house was fantastic, the room was clean and good taste. The whole surroundings was just like Holiday Resort. The big yard with little girl, dog, and cat. Strongly recommend to stay in Singapore! I guarantee u will have an unforgettable holiday!
