The Space

A cosy spacious room in a. charming British style townhouse to share with 2 professionals.

Amazing location in the heart of the City. You cannot get anywhere more convenient; ten minutes to all entertainment, shopping hub of the 'infamous' Orchard Road.

Five mins walking to gym,supermarket, banks food places and restaurants

Beauty of it all is that is it nestled in a very quiet street with a nice park surrounded by lots of greenery.
Fantastic newly renovated kitchen so if you enjoy cooking we can whip up a storm.

  • Location of Elizabeth's house was really convenient, Newton Food Court is nearby, just approx. 10 mins walking distance, and the famous Orchard Road is also very close. As most of other visitors (according to their reviews), we also did not meet Elizabeth, which was unexpected. However, she gave us pretty good directions so we found her place easily. From the airport, we had to call her friend who told us where the keys are.

    The room was really small and looked nothing like the photos. Obviously, we did not expected 4stars hotel, but the price was not so low and clean room and bathroom would be highly appreciated. The whole house was much older than shown on the pictures.
    However, it is a good starting point to explore Singapore.

  • The location of this house is perfect if you are looking for somewhere within a short traveling distance of Orchard Rd. It was within a few minutes taxi ride from the hotel that my conference was at and a few (3 - 5) minutes walk from an open air Hawkers food court! The MRT was only about another 1-2 minutes walk from the food court. Unfortunately I didn't get to see Elizabeth as she was out of town on business. Maybe next time!

  • Elizabeth was out of the country when I arrived. She had set up a friend to let me in, but unfortunately his cell wasn't working, so I spent some time at the airport til it got worked out. The room was comfortable w/good aircon, which was nice in the hot weather. It is close to the MRT, but does require a walk up stairs to cross an overpass. She let me leave my suitcase the last day & come back for a shower before my evening flight, which was very kind. Overall, it was a good place to stay.

  • The most terrible travel experience in my life. The room and whole house are way older than shown on the pics. Dirty and smell in the house, bedroom full of dust from under the bed and behind the blue curtain where owner store all her belonging.
    We were not being informed about sharing the house with 3-4 other guests who we never known before and that all 5-6 people had to share only 1 toilet!
    Our room could not be locked from outside and imagine we had to share the whole house with other 4 strangers.
    Owner was not in the house and we was informed about this obly few days before arrival.
    Toilet and shower get dirty since the first day we arrived and yet no one cleaned it. I had to clean the shower to get rid of pile of vomit or something similar before I could take shower on the 3rd night.

    The worst part and made us moved out the house at 1 am on the 3rd night (we booked for 5 nights) was that we found so many bedbugs all over the bed!!!

    The owner refund us from the 3rd night and appologized. But this is not worth our time and money at all. We were having difficult time finding the hotel at 1 am and didnt get to sleep the rest of the night. The bedbugs are still haunted us since we are afraid they might attach to our belonging and back to our own house.
    One of the most difficult bugs to get rid of.
    I dont understand how other people have reviewed this place so positive but for me it was nightmare.

  • We would recommend that you only stay here if you are familiar with Singapore and are just wanting somewhere convenient for the centre of the city. The accommodation is very basic and comparable with the sort of room you would find in a hostel.

  • Elizabeth's place was a basic room in a good location for exploring Singapore. Newton MRT station is about a 10 minute walk away, and from there it's easy to get anywhere in the city. Newton Food Centre is about a 5 minute walk away and highly recommended for food. Elizabeth was away on a long trip when we stayed so we didn't benefit from the in-person hosting that has been so positively reviewed, though she was available via AirBnB messaging. It's a small room with basic bathroom and washing machine facilities.

  • It was my first time in Singapore and Elizabeth made it great. She is very well organized and knows to make your stay very comfortable. Her home is very well located to get a good impression from Singapore just walking around. She gave good tourist information. I can highly recommend to stay with Elizabeth. Nice talks and every time felt welcomed. Thank you very much Elizabeth !
