About this listing

Bright and airy suite with high ceilings, fan, aircon as well as private toilet and shower facilities.
Situated above a great little local restaurant, café & bar - Rabbit Carrot Gun & The Trenchard Arms.

The space

Eclectic mix of modern art, contemporary and antique furniture are the foundation of this delightful suite. High ceilings with fans, aircon and lots of light. Encapsulated in a 1925 traditionally built Singaporean shophouse, this is 1 half of a 2 bedroom apartment.

Located in the Joo Chiat area on Singapore's East Coast and which is undergoing a rapid gentrification.

The room is above a restaurant with the added advantage of having been sound proofed to minimise disturbance and yet provide easy access where guests will enjoy their breakfast at Rabbit Carrot Gun.

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.

Guest access

Guests will have access to their own bedroom suite including shower facilities. In addition you have access to a shared living room with kitchenette.

Interaction with guests

My wife and I operate Rabbit Carrot Gun and The Trenchard Arms and are on site a great deal of the time. We are therefore available to assist with most enquiries and have a great team who can help in our absence.

I like staying in places that are unusual, thematic. Richard's space didn't fail to stimulate my senses the moment I entered the rooms. I especially liked the outdoor-feel bathroom (I was upgraded to the Terrace Suite btw). Created a very unique atmosphere, you gotta be there to understand. Another highlight of my stay was hopping on to an oBike and stroll around east coast park.

Both my partner and I had a wonderful short yet sweet stay at Richard's. The location was perfect quiet yet central. Good food places were close, access to public transportation aresuper easy. It goes without saying that check in, commuinication and cleanliness was tiptop. We'll be back for sure. Husni & Angeline

Authentic, quirky, stylish and fun, Rabbit embodies the funky Katong vibe. It's the perfect spot for exploring the East of Singapore. Walking distance to the beach, in the heart of the restaurant & bar zone, and an easy taxi / bus hop into town. Friendly and helpful staff, and (quite literally) above a fantastic British themed pub serving delicious grub.

Great listing for a single traveler or a couple staying a few days. I loved the neighborhood and the restaurant right below. This is a private room with a private bathroom but you do share the kitchen and living space with others.

Although it is located on the 2nd floor of a busy restaurant, the apartment is very quite. It has shared kitchen with another room.

Richard's place is great. It's in a quiet out of the way neighborhood that's still an easy bus ride to down town and close to a variety of great restaurants. If you're looking for a different Singapore experience, Richard's place is a great option!

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 3 suites and an eclectic modern British restaurant - Rabbit Carrot Gun - and gastro bar - The Trenchard Arms. Been based in Singapore for 16 years, my interests are very broad and include; architecture, interior design, rugby and things culinary.
Founding partner in a management consultancy group, international property developer, restauranteur, landlord and boutique hotelier.
All wonderful and still my proudest achievement are my two children.
