Luxurious, spacious and eclectic is the only description of The Rabbit Warren - this wonderfully re-furbished suite. Encapsulated in a 1925 traditionally built Singaporean shophouse, this is 1 of 3 newly refurbished suites on the 2nd floor of this beautiful traditional building.
Located in the Joo Chiat area on Singapore's East Coast and which has undergone a rapid gentrification.
The room is above a restaurant with the added advantage of having been sound proofed from below to minimize disturbance and yet provide easy access when guests would like to try a meal in the wonderful Rabbit Carrot Gun.
10 minutes from Changi International Airport and 10 minutes from Singapore's CBD (central business district)
Taxis are plentiful and cheap by international standards. Buses are frequent should you choose the communal taxi.
The Joo Chiat / Katong area is a great location from which to explore all that Singapore has to offer or simply as an alternative to staying in soulless business hotels.
Consider The Rabbit Warren as your home away from home whilst in Singapore!!
Maid service can be arranged as well as outside catering for functions

Thanks to the hosts for giving us a great place to stay for New Years'! The suite was beautiful and made a great staycation venue. Also great bathroom with vintage appeal. Pity we couldn't stay for breakfast, but we'll definitely drop by next time. Thanks for giving us a great start to this year!
Looking for a unique experience? This is it. Rabbit's Retreat is a charming beautifully-decorated room with plenty of light and a huge bathroom. I often started my day with coffee in the cafe downstairs.
Richard and his staff responded quickly to my questions. They were warm, friendly and welcoming.
Rabbits Retreat is a fun place to stay a little outside the tourist trap. The studio is just above a friendly cafe that makes for a great start for your morning.
I had another great stay at Rabbit's Retreat. Although I arrived really late at night, Richard went all the way and had the keys ready at 2am in the morning.
The place is very stylish, tons of great restaurants around (try the Japanese place across the street in the shopping mall). Make sure to install UBER on your phone as getting a taxi can take a bit in the mornings.
This is one of my go to places in Singapore and I will surely come by again!
Very recommendable host. Fast reply, good communication, helpfull. Place was far away from the metro station (2km) but instead I used taxis, which are really cheap in Singapore (to Marina Bay Sands 11 S$). Katong area is nice, full of shopping possibilities, prices are more affordable than in city center. Lots of foot massages and beauty centers, good and cheap food everywhere. Suite is a bigger room with desk and chair, no TV, but really big bathroom with bathtube and walk in shower, comfortable and with (website hidden) and big fun working o.k. Was a little bit too dark, if you are long time in travel you may need one day off and this place after few hours is a little depressive. On the other hand downstairs is very nice restaurant with good food and coffee (though cappucciono and espresso priced more than in starbucks ;-)). Sometimes they put too loud music in the restaurant (especially in the moring I didn't like it). In the end - I really recommend this place and host, we had nice one week stay in there.
Rabbit Carrot Gun is a great place to stay when visiting Singapore or even when looking for a short boutique "staycation". Located right in the middle of charming Katong. There is a restaurant downatairs that has great food and good prices on beer. This place offers a different perspective when staying in Singapore.
We loved our stay here. The room was stunning with beautiful decor, great layout and plenty of space. The bathroom was fantastic with a bath and large shower.
We were extremely comfortable and it was so relaxing and peaceful, we could have stayed there all day.
Great accommodation, fantastic communication with owners before arrival and easy check in.
Thank you for such a positive review, they make such a difference for the entire team. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks also for you suggestions, these are really useful and will be looked into.
Hopefully we have the pleasure of welcoming you back or welcoming your friends and family in future.

Enjoyed saving, refurbishing and re-developing one of Singapore's heritage shophouses so much, decided to go one step further. Refurbishing another 2 shophouses nearby which includes 5 more AirBnB suites and an eclectic modern European restaurant - Rabbit Carrot Gun - and gastro bar - The Trenchard Arms. Been based in Singapore for 12 years, my interests are very broad and include but are not limited to; architecture, interior design, wine, rugby, Scouts.
Founding partner in a management consultancy group, international property developer group and lately an accidental restauranteur, landlord and boutique hotelier.
All wonderful and still my proudest achievement are my two children.
