Our charming, lovely colonial Shophouse on Petain Road in the hip Jalan Besar neighbourhood is the perfect place to rest and relax while exploring the exciting area of Little India as it is situated on a calm, and elegant residential street! ;)

Centrally-located to many awesome eateries, hawker centres, food streets & local bars/cafes, it is just a short 5min walk to Farrer Park MRT station:). City Square Mall and the infamous 24-hour Mustafa Shopping Centre are also within a 3-5min stroll.

An amazing home in Singapore. From the beautiful shop front building to the amazing room. The tips on the local restaurants were great (Char was a favourite!) and the communication and help from the host impeccable. Couldn’t be happier with our stay!

A very comfortable and clean living space. It is convenient as it is very near the MRT. The host and helper were quick to reply messages and queries. It is a very special experience living in a shophouse. 10/10 would recommend!!
