The Space

We offer you an affordable and clean private room for 2 guests... and plenty of Singaporean hospitality (or privacy, if you wish).. all right in the HEART of the city state!

This is a private room with a single bed with a second single bed that can be pulled out from under the first (see photo). It comes with a shared bathroom and is one of 4 other rooms available for rent in the apartment. We tend to attracted well-mannered and considerate guests so you won't have to worry about the sharing arrangement. We also maintain the bathroom several times daily. :)

Given the apartment's location, hearing noise from the cars driving by below is to be expected.

Walk to Newton MRT. Or if you prefer the bus, we have a bus stop right outside our door.

Just ONE MRT (subway/metro) station away from our main shopping district Orchard Road.

Pizzaria, pub, hairdresser, 7-11 convenience store, Balinese massage and many more right INSIDE the apartment building itself (see photos).

The world famous Newton Food Center is within minutes of walk from us.

- All clean bedding and linen
- WiFi Internet
- TV (Living room)
- Iron and ironing board available upon request

We are a super-friendly family of sisters. We'd love to extend our love of international friends beyond our own circles, share our own travel stories and provide some warmth and insights for travelers to our country.

For those who desire privacy and simply want a rest stop, we'd be happy to give you just that too.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The place is very clean, huge and comfy. The room also clean and within proper size. Jane is very helpful host and kindly explain the house rules.

    The place is located within Balmoral Plaza, made us easy to have our daily needs within walking range. It is also in front of Bus stop and 2 bus stops away from Newton MRT station.

    The whole things would be even better if number of the bathroom is not just one, since it has 4 rooms to share the bathroom with. But with this condition, the host is willing to share their private bathroom.

  • Just as described in their ad. A good room with aircon. Jane and Lorraine were extremely helpful. The shops and restaurants downstairs were also very convenient. The walk to the MRT can be done in some 3 to 4 mins. Would definitely stay there again if needed. Best of luck. Floriano

  • Friendly and helpful hosts! Clear and easy instructions to find the place. Lent me an umbrella and iphone charger, which was very helpful!

    Convenient to get to MRT and only 1 stop from Orchard Rd (takes about 20min all in). Easy to get taxis as well. Easy access to food downstairs and at the Hawker Center (~10min walk away), though for more gourmet / international brands (Starbucks, Toastbox, etc) need to go to Orchard Rd.

  • The room is clean is space is just good enough. Their home is really nice and friendly. I mostly hangout in their sala to talk with Jane and Malta (dog). She is really nice. I definitely would come here again.

    The MRT is close, 5 minute walk. and there is a Newtoon foodcourt nearby, probably around 10-15min walk but the food are more expensive compared to other foodcourt.

  • My daughter and I stayed one night at Jane's apt . The check in is easy .but were surprised that workmen working inside the apt, so bit of little shock and things were not tidy !!! MRT was 10 min walk no complain it's well connected to all over singapore . Jane is very nice person and also very trusting . She was kind to allow me late cheek out, that was very nice like staying at home.

  • Jane is very friendly and helpful. I stayed there for a weeks with my big family, and we were greeted warmly. We are very comfortable staying there. The air conditioner work so well! Although the bathroom is separate from the room, but it always clean. It is near from mrt station, and the important thing is you can find many good food right on the apartement building! This place just feels like home. Highly recommended ;) definately will come back when i reach singapore again ;)

  • Jane and her family are welcoming and helpful when it comes to getting around the city. Her house was also in a prime location, short walk from the train station, impossible to get lost. Just one stop away from the shopping district, this also made it easier for commute. Thanks to jane and her family's hospitality, I had an enjoyable stay in singapore.
