In an uniquely Singaporean neighborhood, our small lovely apartment is centrally located in the trendy Duxton Hill / Chinatown area! Next to historic conservatory shophouses and temples; the neighborhood is an eclectic mix of high end restaurants, modern cafés, traditional kopitiams, famous hawker centers, boutique shops and cool bars.

The Space

Perfect location to explore all the best of Singapore and conveniently close to public transportation: there's a bus stop less than 1 minute away and the Outram MRT station is only across the street (6min/500meter walk to PurpleNE3 and 12min/800meter walk within the air conditioned MRT station to the GreenEW16).

The apartment itself is newly renovated and decorated with original art and photography. Tons to do and eat within walking distance, short public transport trip, or even shorter taxi ride since we're in the ideal location for travelers! One of the biggest reasons we personally chose this apartment is because of its proximity to everything too; as expats, we wanted to experience true local life as well be a stone's throw away from amazing food, nightlife and culture.

You'll also share the space with Momo and Ralph: 2 indoor kitties that are basically your best house-mates ever. You'll probably only sporadically see Ralph; he's a bit timid and likes to hide. Momo will often greet you and maybe even cuddle with you. If you don't want them in your room though, just close your door and you won't even know they're around.

Guest Access

------Your Accommodations------
• Queen bed
• All linens (bath towels, bath mat, bed spread, extra blanket, pillows and beach towels; all freshly washed and ready for your arrival)
• Air conditioning and ceiling fan
• Cable TV
• Wi-Fi (200mbps fiber line!)
• International power adapter
• Washer AND separate Dryer - both new (it's nice to have fluffy clean clothing in this sticky humid weather.)
• Your own work desk and closet space.
• Your own key to the apartment and a key to your room.
• If you need, you can borrow a couple public transit cards so you can easily tap in and out of the bus and MRT; just top up the card and you'll travel around like a local with no need to fuss with confusing ticket machines.
• Shared bathroom with large shower.
• Shared kitchen for those who like to do a bit of light cooking. Please help yourself to our kitchen-wares, just be courteous and clean up after yourself.
• To start your day, cereal, milk and coffee will be provided; so you'll have plenty of energy to gallivant through the city!
• A comfortable single sized futon floor mattress can also be provided for traveling duos who aren't comfortable sharing a bed or for 3rd guests (although the bedroom is admittedly a tad snug for 3 people but still bigger than some cheap hotel options; we have this option for traveling trios.)
• Sometimes Singapore is a bit noisy (frogs croaking, mahjong tiles clacking, thunder and the sound of "modern progress" aka construction sounds) so bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper... a good idea in any city. We occasionally use them and have new spares if you need!
• Anything else you'll need: forgot your shampoo, toothbrush, sunblock? We've got it. Ate too much chili crab and your stomach is acting up? Don't worry; we've got Pepto. Advice on what to do and where to go beyond what the guidebooks tell you? Just ask and we've got you covered.

Interaction with Guests

------Your Hosts------
Laid-back and super clean American couple hailing from California. We're into music, art and basically anything creative. We love meeting new people and hearing their stories. Andrew works as a director at a fine art gallery. He traded his snowboard for a wake-board and has continued to play ice hockey in Singapore. Anne's taking a sabbatical from her career to explore the world.

Since we live here too so we should be around for any of your questions. But if you're the type that needs a bit more alone time or privacy, your room has it's own lock so you can recover from your adventures in reflective solitude.

------Before You Book------
Since we'll be sharing our home with you, we like to get to know everyone a bit before we approve their bookings. Please let us know a little about yourself (names of all guests, purpose of trip, favorite foods, hobbies, occupation(s), and anything else you'd like to share.) We're looking forward to hearing from you!

  • Anne and Andrew were great hosts and friendly people! The room looked better than the pictures did. Nice and pretty close to the main tourist spots, most things were in walking distance. They even had a washer AND dryer, which was a life saver. And they gave great recommendations for places to see, some I would have never known about had they not told me. And their cats are great, even though momo was sick. I highly recommend them if you are planning to visit Singapore. You won't regret it. 10/10 would stay again.

  • We truly enjoyed our stay at Anne and Andrew’s place.
    Everything was as described, the room and the apartment were spotless clean and very comfortable.
    The hosts are also very friendly and helpful!
    We highly recommend to this place and would love to rent the room again should we have to go back to Singapore.

  • I stayed only for 2 nights but it was enough to appreciate Anne & Andrew's place! it is well located, well designed and clean. you really feel like they treat this place as an hotel just for you. Their cats are lovely and were nice to hang out with..:) the neighbourhood is close to the centre (2 min to the train or 15 minutes walking) and is lovely - good cafe's around!

  • good location, nice and really clean flat, cute cats :-) and Andrew is a great host. To sum it up: we loved staying there and would recommend it everyone!

  • We had a great time at Anne's and Andrew's apartment. The actual space is just a described, the room very spacious, everything is super clean and well taken care of. It was totally quiet during the night - and day. We could sleep well through our jetlag any time ;-)
    Anne and Andrew were super helpful with tips for things to do and see, places to eat and drink in the area. The location is great, we loved the area and it was very easy to get around by just walking from their place or taking the MRT to orher parts of the city.
    Highly recommended, would love to come back.
    Thanks again & happy holidays to you two :-)

  • Anne & Andrew were terrific hosts and fellow foodies. The location is perfect, the Outram Park Metro stop is close enough that you can be at most of the major sights within 15 mins.

    The room and bathroom were in perfect condition. The access to a washer & dryer for our clothes after the humid walks around the city was also great. This was more than what we needed for our short stay in the city, and would totally recommend Anne & Andrew's apartment to anyone.

  • Anne & Andrew were an absolute pleasure to stay with. The room was clean and spacious, the bed comfy, the a/c quiet and functional and of course a great location. Throw in an espresso maker and a washing machine/dryer that they are kind enough to make available and you've got a hell of an accommodation in Singapore. But truly I feel I lucked out in having the two of them as hosts. They're great people. And have some great friends that I was lucky enough to meet. I really enjoyed our time together, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

    Don't forget to pet Ralph while you're there (and Momo too if he'll let you)!

  • We chose to stay with Andrew and Anne during our 4-day vacation in Singapore. It was our first time to book through Airbnb and at the onset, we were very picky. We narrowed down our choices based on location, accessibility to public transportation, neighborhood and how the place we were supposed to stay in looked like.

    But aside from these, we also checked out our would be hosts. Andrew and Anne seemed to be very hospitable, friendly and willing to make our stay memorable. Their 2 cats, Momo and Ralph were very intriguing and we wondered if they too would be welcoming hosts.

    At the end of it all, our guts told us that this might just be the perfect place for us to stay in Singapore. After our 4-day stay, we have proven that our guts were right. We made the right choice!

    Thank you Andrew and Anne for being such gracious (website hidden). To Momo and Ralph, you two were such adorable hosts (as well).
