This was my first experience to use Airbnb and I stayed at Lily's apartment for 3 nights. It was a very comfortable days and it was much much better than staying at hotels as hotels in Singapore is super expensive.
Very fast response!

Stayed here for 3 days and the apartment was awesome, lily was nice and the place is good, there's only one thing, the air conditioner was leaking. But overall it's great
We stayed in this apt from Jan. 29th to Feb. 8th, 2014. Some problems for this apt:
1. There are two rooms have no air conditioner installed. 2房沒冷氣。
2. The only controller has no power, not able to tune the temperature, easy to get cold. 唯一的冷氣遙控器沒電，無法調溫度，易感冒。
3. Bathtub no stopple and very dirty. There is only one stool, not full two set sanitary. 浴缸沒水塞且很髒。只有一個馬桶，不是2間衛浴。
4. There are many cockroaches in Kitchen. 廚房蟑螂多。
5. Clothes dryer is not working 烘衣機壞的。
The condo apartment has a central aircondition, so the two other bedrooms are airconditioned too. The remote control works perfectly - the guest does not know how to use it.
There are 2 bathrooms and 1 toilet in the apartment. I did not find any leak in the bathroom.
The broken clothes dryer was replaced the very next day, and for that day when the clothes dryer broke down, we assisted him to dry the clothes in the clothes dryer of another apartment.
As for the cockroaches, I did not receive complaints from the other guests, but in tropical Singapore; a few cockroaches,ants and lizards are usually found in apartments. Nevertheless, I have engaged a pest contractor to look into the problem, and his conclusion is similar to mine.
Throughout the guest's stay,I have been responsive to his requests - extra blankets, towels, toilet rolls etc , change of linen, child's feeding set, child's cot, child's swimming float pump, replacement of the broken clothes dryer, airport pick up, send off arrangements,sightseeing arrangements...
I would have responded to the guest's complaints or feedback positively and in a helpful manner; if the guest had tell me of these problems or his perception of these problems. I believe that those were not issues in the first place - the guest did not quite know how to use these amenities.
Lily is a very nice lady and excellent service, she will do the best for all of your requests.
While the house is being repaired, she will inform us in-advance and upgard the other house to us. Furthermore, my return-flight sch is mid night, she will arrange to store our luggages until late night.
Besides, she will keep in touch to contact you for any updated no matter house or personal matters.
I stayed at Lily's place for 5 weeks while attending the nearby NUS. The condo is a bit on the old side but well-kept and in good condition. There is a fully stocked kitchen with washing machine and tumble dryer, a good wi-fi connection and TV, so everything you need for a home-away-from-home. The view towards the city from the 19th floor is great! The pool area is very nice, and so are the grounds that lead directly to Kent Ridge Park. However, despite the location in the midst of nature, note that there is quite a lot of noise coming from the nearby highway, day and night. Also, the location means that apart from the amenities of the condo (a decent supermarket and a cafe-restaurant with erratic opening hours), there is literally nothing else around; this is not a 'neighbourhood' in the Singaporean sense as the condo is set in a business/science park with only offices for neighbours. Busses are easy to get to other parts of the city from right outside the condo, but the nearest MRT station is a 10-15min walk away.
Lily is very helpful and accommodating and sorting out arrival etc. was easy with her. However, she does not live in the flat herself. It's a 3 bedroom flat, and you'll be sharing with a friendly British-French couple, and whoever happens to be occupying the other AirBnB room. You'll also share the bathroom with the other AirBnB room, so cleanliness will depend on who is staying in the flat at the same time as you.
All in all, I enjoyed my stay at the flat, and even extended from what I had originally planned. However, it is more of a room to rent atmosphere rather than staying at a local's home. Also, if you're looking for the hustle and bustle of the city, you should probably look somewhere more central.
We didn't stay here at this property. We were transferred to Lily's property in Orchard Area which I think is better because it's a lot nearer to the shopping area and city. Overall, our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. Lily's apartment has all the basic amenities like TV, aircon, microvawe, fridge, and washing machine. You can also do light cooking in the apartment. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable.
Lily is also nice and replies to my query promptly. She even provided us free one way airport pick-up since we were transferred to Orchard.
Definitely worth the money.
Lily was nice and she was attentive to our needs and always gave us immediate feedback. We had to cancel the same day we arrived, because there was a mistake on my part thinking it was not a shared apartment. Lily had it clear in the listing, I just didn't read it well.
