Escape to a piece of old Singapore amongst the city's hustle and bustle surrounded by tropical greens, the occasional sight of nature and vintage local architecture. Nestled nearby to such popular locations as the night scene of Clarke Quay, historic Fort Canning, the scenic route of Singapore River and busy streets of Orchard Road, this cosy place is full of charm and character that has to be seen to be believed that it still exists. A rare find in this part of town.

Penny was an incredibly accommodating host. I actually forgot to book the first night of my stay and booked to start from the next day in error. Whilst at the airport, Penny was able to accomodate an extra night and was totally cool with it, was a massive help! The house is beautiful and spacious, with a great patio outdoor area and hammock. Akira the cat is awesome. Penny gave great advice about local places to go and eat and other cool stuff to check out. She is a great host and a lovely, kind hearted person. I would highly recommend both the apartment and Penny as a host. Thanks so much Penny for a wonderful stay James

I love how this apartment is surrounded by green. It's peaceful and chilled. And yet central and close to public transport. A nice place to come home to after running around the island. The room was neat and clean. And Penny was helpful with her recommendations of where to go, what to eat, and what to see. Thank you!

I really enjoyed my stay in this little tropical paradise. The host was friendly, courteous and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and the location was nice and quiet. I also spent time shopping around Orchard area for the Great Singapore Sale. I walked there and took a bus back without much hassle. It's the best location you can get with this price !

The apartment is an amazing oasis in the middle of the Lion City! What a treat it was to have an opportunity to stay in an authentic mid century tropical home a walks distance away from the bustling convenience of Orchard Road. Super convenient location with everything you could ask for on any visit to Singapore. Much better than staying in any modern air conditioned condo, this place gives any visitor a true experience of the beauty of living in the tropics of Asia. Penny was a wonderful host! Highly recommend and will definitely stay again :)
