  • Agréable séjour chez les Sichere, chambre et sdb séparées, proche métro Airport et centre, très pratique pour visiter la ville. Chouette quartier populaire et typique, très différent du centre, nous vous les conseillons !

  • We've chosen this apartment because of it's location at an unbeatable price. Ludovic was easy to deal with and all his family is very nice. The kids are quiet and with a little respect to their needs you'll yourself very comfortable in this family.

    The room is basic, but very clean, with quiet aircon (though we slept just with opened windows). The next door bathroom is only yours and in perfect condition.

    The location is very convenient between airport and city centre. Taxi is really cheap (13 sgd to airport) and the Aljunied mrt station is only 5 mins walk. Lots of streetfood on every corner!

    In general it's a great choice for those who plan only to have a rest in the apartment and spend the time in the city. And don't forget about the large pool!

    Thank you guys! Anna & Anton.

  • A very friendly family including the maid. We felt very much at home. Thank you for your hospitality. We enjoyed the location, the pool, the opportunity to make coffee or tea. It is generally a value for money experience.

  • Great location and lovely apartment with swimming pool. Their maid/full time nanny Joy is so lovely and will make you feel very welcome. Only issue is i felt uncomfortable as its a very small space and had to tip toe around as to not make a sound. Be careful not to let bedroom door slam shut as all the windows are usually left open.

    Response from Ludovic:

    Thanks Kara for the feedback. Indeed, our unit is not that big and guests need to know that they are staying at our family's place. We are sorry that you might have felt uncomfortable about it. We will remind our guests that they should feel more like home and try to improve in this area. Thanks for the advice not to let doors slam, we will add it in our guest book. Thanks a lot as well for the nice comment about our nanny: we will definitely tell her. For other guests, please note that we don't want to add any workload from AirBnB to our nanny, hence may we suggest to always ask us first if you need any assistance (note that this comment is not meant for Kara but is a general comment to our guests). Cheers!

    The room provides everything you need. Aircon worked perfect.

  • Great place to stay. It is convenient to everything as the location is so close to subway. I can be at chinatown in 20 min, garden by the bay in 20 min, and airport in 20 min.

    Ludovic and wife are very nice and easy going. We shared and chatted about singapore and places to see. Good talking with them.

    Will stay again next time.

  • Ludovic and his family were really nice and helpful. We had a great stay there. Its a good location really close to the MRT. The room is very very clean and confortable. I recommend this place a lot!!

  • It was a great time with Ludovic and his nice family in a really wonderfull apartment, best location, never before I stay in Katong. Perfect for me, I can see many of the old Singapore. Many different old and new Temples, many Restaurants and small distance to Bus and MRT. When I come back to Singapore, I want again a lot of time with this family and her nice Maid. Thank you Family Sichere!

  • We had a good stay at the Schirers place. The place is very central in Geylong. This is quite a colorful part of Singapore, and not like Marina Bay Sands etc :) There's a lot of great small food courts all around the area.

    There is AC in your room and it's quiet. You have your own bathroom, it is however close to the kids and parents room. But it doesn't matter. A couple of pools to cool down.

    The parents are busy people and not home very much. The children and housekeeper Joy will be.

    All in all very friendly people and can only recommend staying here.

About
Hi, I am Ludo, a Singaporean from France. I live with my daugher Albane and my wife Alexia. We chose to live in Geylang as it is quite authentical, near the center by mrt (I also run or use my bicycle from time to time to go to the CBD). We enjoy going to East Coast Park or Marina Bay during week-ends (often with our bicycles or rollerblades). We also go to museums such as Asian Civilisation Museum, Art Science Museum or Museum of Singapore. I work in the CBD and Alexia works in Joo Chiat Place. I work in M&A for a Big4 and Alexia has her own company (website hidden) (leading flash sales website for families in Singapore). Her company sells end-of-season stocks at very discounted price mainly for kids and moms. We have been aroung in Asia: Burma, Philippines, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, PRC, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand. We enjoy travelling but we don't travel that much any more due to our jobs.
