About our home

This colonial black and white bungalow in Singapore is unique in location, tropical design and architectural heritage. One of only very few left in Singapore they allow you to experience a bit of history in this now modern, successful Asian city. Orchard road, the shopping centre of Singapore is a 10 minute drive away. Glam and hip restaurants are a 15 minutes drive away at the most. The house has a resort feel in an otherwise crowded city state. With ample greenery, pool and outdoor furniture it is a pleasure to enjoy the tropical environment. Birds that visit our garden include hornbills, sulphur crested cacketoos and kingfishers.
Two housekeepers will take care of all you needs. Marites cooks up recipes from any of your favourite chefs including Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsay, Bill Granger, Nigella Lawson among others. Marites and Florida will take care of groceries, cleaning, washing and ironing too. They are very good with children which will give parents flexibity to go out for shopping, dinner or sightseeing if they would want to.

The main house has an outdoor and indoor living room, dining room and coffee / wine bar. Four bedrooms including the master bedroom are in the main house. In a separate annex in the garden is our guestroom.

The MRT (metro) has a stop outside the park at 1 km distance. Busses stop oustide the park at a 400 meter walk. Taxi's are abunded, cheap and reliable. They usually arrive in 5 to 7 min.

Furthermore the house comes with two lovely labradors calles Pip (black lab) and Lola (white lab).

We hope you enjoy staying in this relaxing resort.
