About our home

Our condo lies in the heart of Singapore and is great for families with children. The condo's facilities include an adult and baby swimming pool, a tennis court, 2 squash courts, kids playground and gymnasium (cardio and weights). We are centrally located with Botanic Gardens, Holland Village (cafes), Dempsey (restaurants) and Orchard Road (shopping) only 5-10 mins in a taxi/bus/MRT. The nearest MRT station is Stevens on the downtown line and this is only a 5 minute walk from the condo. In terms of location, the condo is in a great spot. All the main attractions such as the zoo and Sentosa Island, which is home to universal studios and the aquarium are about 15-20 mins away in a taxi ($15). There is plenty to do here for children of all ages ranging from adventurous waterparks, zip lines over Sentosa Island and the scenic cable car journey from Mount Faber.

The condo has a large open planned living room and dining/playroom, with 2 large sofas, a pouf and a 65 inch TV (including netflix and your main UK channels e.g. BBC One, ITV, CBeebies, SkyNews etc). Wifi is accessible throughout the apartment. There are fans and aircon available in each room. The dining room doubles up as a playroom and we have lots of toys for young children to play with as well as art and crafts for older children. There are 2 bathrooms, one is the master bedroom ensuite with shower, bath, sink and toilet, the other with just a shower, single sink and toilet. We have 3 good size bedrooms, the master bedroom contains a king size bed, the second bedroom will soon contain a bunk bed (where the 2 beds can be separated and one placed in the 3rd bedroom if need be) and the third bedroom contains a cot and sofa. All 3 bedrooms have large wardrobes to store clothes. The kitchen is a good size with large fridge freezer and dishwasher. In terms of outside space, the condo has a large patio area which leads onto the central area and accompanying playground. This contains our gas BBQ, dining table and 6 chairs as we tend to have all our meals outside with the weather being pleasant all year round. Alternatively, this can be moved inside into the dining/playroom area, if you would prefer to eat indoors. Unfortunately we do not have a car but with public transport/taxis being so cheap, clean and efficient, a car is not really needed.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Centrally located, the condo is only a short walk from Botanic Gardens where they have the Jacob Ballas Garden, which is great for kids. Holland Village, is one stop on the MRT and this contains lots of restaurants, bars and cafes. Dempsey is also walkable, although easier to get to by bus and again has lots of excellent restaurants. The 174 bus also takes you to Orchard Road, which is great for shopping.
