Better located than most 5 star hotels, plus full time housekeeper

The Space

*Please note that the room is strictly for one person only. Inquiries for couples or groups will be declined. No exceptions.

Rare opportunity to live in a spacious designer apartment in the heart of Orchard Road, managed by a full-time housekeeper. Location doesn't get better than this! Better located than most 5-star hotels in Singapore. The apartment overlooks Orchard Road, and is located on one of Singapore's most exclusive and historic enclaves, Emerald Hill. Here you get the best of both worlds: the apartment faces historic, leafy Emerald Hill on one side, and bustling Orchard Road on the other side. The apartment is beautiful, everyone who comes here says Wow!! =)

Note: Lately I have been getting a lot of inquiries from groups of friends/ couples/ families with kids. Please note that this apartment is not suitable for these types of guests, and the room for rent is only for one person.

The room for rent is bright and sunny, furnished with a double bed with all-white sheets, a desk and ample storage space, plus a brand new airconditioner. The apartment is furnished with designer furniture, art and antiques from around the world; is equipped with a full-sized kitchen complete with an oven and dishwasher, and has high-speed wifi. There is a separate washing/ drying area for your use. The building is equipped with a gym, swimming pool, 24 hour security and parking lot and is steps away from Somerset MRT station, Paragon, Takashimaya, Orchard 313, etc. (Please see "Guidebook" for some tips, and you'll see how super close we are to everything.)

If you are someone who appreciates a nice apartment in an excellent location, is quiet and doesn't bring overnight guests or entertain at home (but doesn't mind the occasional chit chat), or someone who travels in and out of Singapore and is tired of staying in hotels, this place is for you.

I am a single female writer/ entrepreneur who loves dogs (but doesn't have one in the apartment!), lives to travel, is sociable but not a big partygoer, flies small planes and loves going on adventures.

Interaction with Guests

I am happy to answer any questions and at the same time naturally give my guests a lot of space to do their own thing.

The Neighborhood

Absolute best neighborhood in town, in my opinion =)

Getting around

Extremely, extremely convenient. Less than 5 mins walk to Somerset MRT, less than 10 mins walk to Orchard MRT. Taxi stand 1 min walk away, buses everywhere.

Other Things to Note

Breakfast/ drinks are not provided but guests are most welcome to use the kitchen.

  • Beautiful, clean, sunny apartment in a great location. Nice to (email hidden) in housekeeper who made the bed, put out fresh towels, and also helped me find cabs in the AM. The room was nice and bed was comfortable, however I didn't realize when booking that it was a shared bathroom with a male flatmate.

  • I had a great stay at JR's - it's just like the photos, maybe even better than the photos and it's got AC and a pool which are essential in Singapore's humidity. Also quite centrally located - especially if you wanna squeeze in some shopping. Thanks for having me!

  • A great place, great location, comfortable and well kept. J.R is awesome- friendly and very responsive. I had changes to my travel plan, and she tried her best to accommodate. My next time in Singapore, i am sure to stay there.

  • JR was a perfect host - kind, smiling, helpful, in a quiet, unobstrusive way. Her flat is spotless and very pleasant. I also enjoyed the quick dip in the morning in the swimming pool - great if you suffer from jet lag. Her residence is very much in the heart of things. The subway (very clean and very safe) is only 5 mn away, it's very easy to get to Chinatown, Little India or Downtown, or of course to take a stroll along Orchard Road, the place to be in Singapore. For a first stay, that's quite ideal. Strongly recommended to all female travellers.

  • The place is very tidy and neat. The whole stay was very convenient. Given that it's just a stones throw away from Orchard Road a lot of places are within working distance.

  • a good place in a top location. was all perfect.

  • Jenny's place is ideally located, very close to Orchard Road and the Summerset MRT station. The room is on the 9th floor of a residence with secure access and a swimming pool. You will share the bathroom with another person but access to the bathroom was not an issue at all. Jenny is a professional and friendly host. My only regret is that we didn't get to share much because of our mutual busy schedules. But all in all, it is the perfect location if you're looking for a quiet place to stay in the heart of Singapore.

  • Jenny is a lovely host with a lovely apartment; it's airy and light and the furnishings are very neat. She naturally projects a nice balance of being open/available as a local and giving her guests space to do their own thing. This stay worked really well for me on a work-trip to Singapore, and it'd be a pleasure to stay with Jenny again.

  • Jenny was very helpful and always willing to talk to me and give me advice. Communication was perfect throughout and the whole experience was great. I would easily recommend a stay at Jenny's, the mrt station is very close and so easy to use. Jenny's apartment is a superb location for anything you may wish to see / do in Singapore. Thanks Jenny.

  • Jenny has a beautiful flat and it's a lovely little room. The bed got made everyday which was great and everything was very clean. Shared bathroom but never had to wait to use it as the other person was barely there - can use the kitchen and Jenny took the time to show me how the washing machine and oven etc worked. My only one slight point would be that as Jenny works from home, from the living room there wasn't really another space in the flat to go other than to my room. But that didn't really detract from the fact it's a lovely house and Jenny is a lovely and very considerate host.

    Response from J.R.:

    Thank you Georgia for your kind review! You were always most welcome to hang out in the living room even though I was working in the corner. Sorry if it didn't seem that way =) I do not mind people sitting around me although I will not be able to speak to them while on the computer =).

About
I am a world traveler, a writer, and an animal lover (a really big one! Dogs, cats, piglets, chickens... you name it!). I have lived and worked in Singapore, Manila, Philadelphia, the Loire Valley in France, London, and my all-time favorite city, New York. I am usually on planes, either flying them or riding them. I love meeting people who have a clear purpose in life, especially if it involves a cause greater than themselves. I am constantly on the go but these days you'll just find me sitting quietly in a corner and keeping to myself... as I am currently writing a book. My dream is to live between some tropical location, and my favorite city New York.
