About This Listing
Experience the best of Singapore city life and lush greenery, at this quiet Harbourfront condo facing beautiful Mount Faber.
Our condo is located in a small lane facing Mount Faber, just off the city main southern artery to the City Business District (CBD), opposite Vivocity (the largest shopping mall in Singapore), right next to the entrance of Sentosa and 100m walk from HarbourFront MRT (convenient hub, with most places within 20min MRT / 15min taxi).
Vivocity has virtually everything you need under one roof, incl a world-class cinema, great food, supermarkets and amazing shopping. It is also next to the latest & greatest poster boy in Singapore's night scene, St.James Power Station.
Our home overlooks Mount Faber which provides all-day fresh air and quietness (and even sometimes monkeys eyeing us from the forest canopy!); and is at the entrance of the Southern Ridges, a network of 9km of green, open spaces that connect the southern parks/reserves and is home to a myriad of flora and fauna (you'd be surprised!). A great getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city life.
A charming bedroom (100+ sqf) with queensize bed, fully airconditioned and furnished (including large wardrobe), home-office ready (plug-and-work away), shared bathroom (shower), and all the home amenities you might need — unlimited high-speed WiFi (at 50 Mbps), access to our cosy living room with home theater (42'' TV) with media entertainment center (hundreds of movies/TV series and music, accessible across the house - perfect for romantic movie in bed), nice library and reading corner, full kitchen (including oven, microwave) and laundry/dryer.
Note: the bathroom is shared.
You'll be living in a buzzy creative home of other creatives — between the 3 of us living here in a three-bedroom condo( 1 married couple, and our friend ), we're entrepreneurs, consultants, designers, artists, techies, globetrotters and more — and many others that have visited (previous guests include entrepreneurs, executives, artists, writers, athletes, photographers), this home has hosted theme parties, candlelit dinners, hookah nights, film shoots, movie marathons, startup weekends, workshops, game nights and more!
There's always a new story in our home and we're happy to have you join us in writing the next one!

Most importantly, ENJOY your time in Singapore!
it is great to stay with maria&andries. they are realy kind and helpful. the room ist big enough to stay for a longer time. the appartment ist clean. the mrt and bus stations are very near. good to explore the city. in the shoppingmall vivocity you get all the things you need for the daily life.
for me is the waterfront and sitting outside in the evening, when in sentosa the firework lit, the best;-). thanks for all.
I stayed with Maria and Andries for four weeks, had a brilliant time! Place was large and spacious, true to the photos. Bedroom was great with double bed and ample storage space. Towels and bedding were provided, I had a bathroom all to myself for three weeks until another person moved in to the apartment. The place was always clean and kitchen was fully equipped with all utensils and dishes required. There is also a laundry room with washing machine and dryer. The place itself is very conveniently located a couple of minutes walk from Harbourfront MRT, and across the road from VivoCity mall; roughly 15 mins on the MRT to Raffles Place and Clarke Quay. Maria and Andries are awesome hosts and I would definitely consider staying with them again!
First off: the bed is amazing. It's so great, that only based on the bed I would recommend this Airbnb.
That would be a bit unfair though ;) Unfortunately we did not meet Maria, but we did speak to Andries a few times, very nice guy and he had good tips and knew about almost all places we went, which comes in handy if you're looking for tips.
The apartment is pretty spacious, and so is the room. There is a big closet in there which was nice. There is a swimming pool downstairs, we never used it because of the weather (bit rainy), but it looked nice and quiet.
The location of this Airbnb is great. It's a 3 minute walk to the MRT (underground) and bus station. It's also the MRT station with the biggest shopping mall and the MRT from which you can directly go to Santosa Island.
I would recommend staying with Maria and Andries for sure.
I lived togehter with Maria and Andries for three months and it was a great time. Their flat is really nice and absolutely inspiring. There is everything you need and Maria and Andries are always very friendly if you need something or if there are any questions. The pool is amazing, never crowded and perfect to cool down. The MRT is really close, as well as a huge shopping mall where you can find everything you need.
I really enjoyed the time staying in Singapore and it always felt like coming home when you get into this lovely flat :-)
To sum it up: it was an amazing stay! This place is great for both short-term and long-term rent. My wife lived with Maria, Andries and their lovely room mate Manuel for 6 weeks and I visited for a few days. We could not have had better hosts! Maria and Andries are warm and inspiring people and really make you feel at home. The place is very well located, just opposite Singapore's biggest shopping mall where you can literally get everything, a 10-minute ride into CBD (Chinatown, Clarke Quay) and a stroll away from Sentosa for entertainment and Mount Faber for hiking. The pool is a big plus, too, and wonderful for a morning swim. What more can I say? If you are looking for a spacious, cosy apartment with wonderful hosts this is definitely your place! We hope to come back soon.
