First thing first. I’d rate this listing as a 4 stars hotel suite, here you live with the locals. If you are not down to living with the HDB locals this place might not before you, please do a research on HDB Singapore. On the other hand, if you want a 5-6 stars suite, I’ve 1 on my profile under LUX Suite by Orchard. The rate will be bit higher then this but it will still be less then ½ of what you’d paid for a 5-6 stars suite in SIN.
I'm actually looking for a longer term rental, e.g. a six month rental for this unit.
I have always wanted to live in a Tiffany's box. The apartment is somewhat inspired by "Breakfast at Tiffany's" with modern amenities. My philosophy regarding designing a place for bnb is very simple, if I don’t even want to stay in that place, I wouldn’t even rent it out.
I don't live in this apartment, I live somewhere close by. When you rent this place, you rent the entire suite to yourself.
When I travel, I only stay in boutique or five stars hotels, I designed this place with comfort and “lifestyle” in mind. I would not skim on guests service and the satisfaction of my guests reign supreme to my bnb business. You should not expect anything less then a boutique hotel service from me.
In terms of the suite’s design; both the bedrooms and dinning room are glazed with Tiffany’s Robin's egg blue wall, while the furnitures and fixtures are all in white to give the bedroom a contemporary feel, the dinning room is accented with a mixture of chinoiserie and 30’s colonial interior. As for the living room, I give it an art deco and modern touch.
This suite surrounded with a couple of traditional coffee shops in Singapore and there is also a tremendously inexpensive yet delicious Nepalese restaurant. have to get my fix there at least twice a month. On top of that, there is also a newly renovated hawker center downstairs. I It is highly suggested and recommended. You will never go hungry there for there are bunch of food stalls that operates almost 24/7.
Frankly, this suite is more centrally located then the entire down town area of Singapore. We are literally 10-20 minutes away from anywhere by cab – the main shopping district of Orchard Road, the historic Chinatown and Clarke and Boat Quays or the restaurant oasis of Club Street. The Central Express Way aka CTE, or the Pan Island Express way aka PIE is just around the corner. You can’t get anymore convenient than that. The MRT station is about 800 meters from the apartment. Of course if you are feeling lazy, you can always take bus and alight two stops from the stop where you board.
Since you are here already, let me take this opportunity to introduce myself, of course you can skip this part if you want to. I used to be an entertainer, starting out as a model in San Francisco when I was sixteen, followed by being a MTV and Channel V VJ before I got myself a talk show spot in Taipei, Taiwan. I have now traded glitz and glamor for a Ph.D. I’m quite open on (website hidden); please do check it out if you want to know more about who Rick Tan, (website hidden), really is. I do believe that wisdom is knowledge through one’s experience, so let’s trade stories about our life experience.
I also feel that everything is possible - all you need to do is ask. I’ll make your stay in Singapore an amazing experience that you will brag about it to your friends for years to come. I have been told time and again that I’m a great ambassador for Singapore, so rest assured you will go back with plenty of knowledge, insights and wonderful moments.
You might want to do the touristy thing, but if you are looking forward to a true local Singapore experience, then I’ll show you around whenever I want to catch a breather from my Ph.D. research, I’ll let you know so that you can plan in advance. I look forward to seeing you in Singapore.
Laundry is SGD$20 Perload inclusive of ironing.
Please be aware that pre-approve does mean that it's confirmed. It's all first come first serve. Please do not wait till the last moment because others might have booked it already and I won't be able to do anything about it.
And also I do price my place very competitively, hence I would I don't give anymore discount.
I'm sorry I have to put this disclaimer down for there were many incidences where people ask me why they can't book it after they have been pre-approve and that's the reason why.
Last but not least the rule of Aibnb in Singapore; you do not talk about Airbnb.
Thanks for checking my dwelling out.
I keep in touch with my guest 24/7

In Singapore, the rule of airbnb is not to talk about airbnb with thy neighbors. Just tell them that you are our friends staying over.
I do price my place very competitively, hence I would I don't give anymore discount.
Just help save the enviornment by turning off all the lights and air-cons when you leave the apartment. And please do talk if there is anything i can do make your stay here more comfy.
Please do not cook Indian food for it will take me a long time to clear the smell before the next guests arrive.
The host is extraordinarily helpful and welcoming. The flat is located in a friendly neighbourhood and provides a taste of local living. There are bus and MRT links close by and a food court. Inside, the flat is as it appears in the images -quite tastefully decorated. Lighter sleepers might take a little while to get used to the noise from the aircon but I had no such problems - the bed is extremely comfortable. Highly recommend.
Great booking experience. Rick responses to inquiries quickly and very accomodating.
Nice and comfortable apartment. Everything is as described in the listing. The food court and 24-hour grocery store just around the corner were nice bonuses. Taxi is not as readily available with 5-10 min wait. But if you're lucky, you'll get one right away. :) Or you can always get an app to reserve taxi. Rick or Aimee is easily reachable via whatsapp if you need something. Overall a great experience.
My wife, two daughters and myself had the pleasure to stay at the Tiff Suite. This was our first try with AirBnB and it turned out to be a great experience. The communication with the owner Rick was excellent. He was very polite and allways answered my questions very quickly. The instructions to get to the appartement were very precise and caused no difficulties whatsoever. The appartment was very clean and comfortable and all appliances worked fine. The location is also very good with a supermarket and food court nearby. We felt very safe and the local people were very friendly and helpful. Due to the superb public transport system it was easy to get around the fascinating and beautiful city of Singapur. We can strongly recommend Rick's Tiff Suite! Thank you Rick
Rick's Tiffany & Co. Suite was amazing! Everything you need is just downstairs, especially the 'food court' and supermarket. Would recommend anyone to stay here for sure, if you really want the experience the local Singaporean lifestyle.
This delightful, beautifully decorated apartment is perfect for business travellers and tourists. Every little detail from the art, to the decanter, to the blue walls, is peaceful and stunning. Friendly low key local neighbourhood. Excellent high speed internet.
Very nice and tidy flat. No problems at all. Bus stops nearby, 15 min walk to the metro station. A supermarket and a food court nearby - strongly recommend the latter :)
