We love travellers and have been living in Singapore and Asia for many years. We can give advice on the best things to eat and see in Singapore and in the region.

The house is located in a bungalow area which is really nice. John and his wife are really nice. Same as their helper. Also, the decorations and antiques are really awesome, my mum enjoyed her stay there!

Very pleasant experience in John and Jasmine's place. If you are bored with standard hotels, you should try. The room is quite spacious and I like the green in the yard. Highly recommended!

We enjoyed our stay in the suburbs. Did not meet John, but the house keeper Divine was a very nice host. Classic Bungalow style with nice veranda and small swimming pool.

The house was an incredible oasis away from the busy happenings of the city. The hosts are really friendly and welcoming making the whole experience very relaxing. I cant recommend enough that anyone who has the opportunity to stay here should do it! They would not regret it!

A nice colonial location, nature near and surroundings with other private houses. Be ready to walk some way to the closest MTR station. I had a car which made it easy for me to go around Singapore.

We enjoyed our stay at your home. It was spacious and green though it was difficult fending off the mosquitoes outdoors. Thanks again.
