“What a wonderful time we had in this amazing colonial black and white bungalow. Our wonderful hosts, Jiska and Bouldewijn have created a little paradise with a truly resort feel and style. The sent and colours of flowers the singing of the birds and the beauty of tropical plants will welcome you and you can easily forget that you are just minutes away from the city buzz. All main bedrooms are spacious with access to the beautiful garden, with really comfortable beds to recover from jet lag. We have been pampered by the house two helpers that have been so helpful and discreet making us feel really on holiday, Marites has prepared us some really delicious dinners offering us a taste of local and italian cuisine. Florida has taken care of all laundry and groceries. We have enjoyed luxurious breakfasts by the pool, relaxing time in the evening in the candle lit outdoor veranda but most of all the feeling of been in a little corner of tropical paradise. Jiska has been so wonderfully kind in suggesting us lots of family “things to do an see” in Singapore and we have enjoyed every one of them!!! We can never thank this family enough for agreeing to this swap!!!!! Isabella p.s…..our kids were literally in love with Pip and Lola! ”

“This property was perfect for a family get away. It is close to the MRT if you take the shortcut and buses are also easy to catch and close by. I would suggest that you ensure you have plenty of cash rather than rely on credit/debit cards as we discovered you need to pay for the railcard in cash ($12 per person - $7 of which goes toward fares, then it is a case of loading it as you need it). Travelling by rail is really cheap, approximately $1 to go from Woodleigh to Harbourfront. The treehouse and zipline are AWESOME according to our youngest 2 children. The pets were all lovely too and the wildlife on the property was beautiful (we loved watching the squirrels jump from tree to tree). After doing the touristy things in Singapore all day, our bodies were tired and hot only to return to a gorgeous swimming pool and cooled bedrooms. Sitting out on the deck was a great end to the day. The wireless connection was easy to use and the 2 housekeepers gave us directions when needed. They are also fantastic cooks and even had my 13 year old son eating veggies and wanting more! If only I could have brought the 2 of them home with us! I would recommend that you visit the Gardens by the Bay if you are going to Singapore, we left it late in our trip and wish we'd seen it earlier so that we could revisit parts. The night time show is beautiful and well worth attending. I think it was at 7.45pm for about 15 minutes. The moonlit tour was really good and again I wish we had done this within the first days of our holiday. Not to forget the Singapore Flyer - there were no queues and what views. This property is amazing and we have made some lovely memories. Thanks Jiska and Family.”
