Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We can fully recommend staying at Tim und Jess! Except at the time when we want to come back to Singapore because they are our top choice there ;)
    Their apartement is very modern, clean, comfy and very nicely furnished. Getting there was no problem at all - after Jess did a really great job describing us all the way from the airport.
    The both are the perfect hosts: very friendly and interesting people - helping you out with every advice and even search for your bus to the next destination ;)
    We really enjoyed the healthy breakfast and the lovely pool, our room and the bathroom.

  • The only way to describe my experience with Tim and Jess is amazing! Their home is beautiful, the room is comfortable with a very nice bed.

    Both Jess and Tim were very helpful giving me their busy time to answer my questions about the city and calling taxis for me. Tim spent 45 minutes of his time helping me find a taxi during the very busy Friday 6-7 pm rush.

    I would highly recommend staying here. I personally feel they are not charging market rates and the room is worth 50% more than what they are charging.

    Thank you for your hospitality and warmth Jess and Tim.

  • Tim+Jess are really wonderful hosts. They help you with good recommandations and share their home with their guests in a way that you feel totaly welcome from the very first minute you arrive. All Organisation was pretty easy. The place itself is really beautiful and located very central to explore Singapore.

  • Jess (and Tim sorry we didn't get the opportunity to meet you!) were absolutely wonderful. Jess couldn't do enough for us. The accommodation was great! Great room and amenities and so close to transport and the city. We could not have asked for anything more! If you are looking for the real Singapore experience and want to stay away from the big cold hotels, then I would highly recommend Tim and Jess's Air BnB. We wold definitely stay there again...but longer next time. Thanks Time and Jess.

  • Fantastic, truly. The flat is extremely well appointed and has very high end condo details in fixtures and design as well as the little bits that make living smoother that are often missed in luxury projects.

    I never met Tim but Jess is a fantastic hostess, answering all of my stupid questions and making sure everything was in order for me.

    The Newton MTR is a bit of a walk(though I don't mind as I walk a whole lot) but there are tons of buses down the block on the main road. And people take taxis a lot in Singapore which are relatively cheap.

    The pool area is completely lovely, restorative and the pool length is completely ridiculous if you swim laps.
    I used it and I suggest you do the same.

    The pics, I think, do not convey how new and great this rental is(I don't think since I was surprised on the upside when I arrived).

    If you know Singapore and the prices you will realize that this is an amazing bargain to be in such a fine place as a guest.

    And considering how I accidentally rang the doorbell while trying to turn out the foyer light at 530am and Jess was still so gracious, I cannot consider this fab place without mentioning that I am sure the experience was that great due to her.

    I don't think I have said it is a must to consider a rental(though I have recommonded some) but this one is just that. Unless I am returning and then you should not take it so that I can.

    A definite in Singapore.
    Thanks for lifting my spirits with this stay Jess and Tim.

  • I had a lovely time at the Tim and Jess's place. They are very warm and welcome hosts. The room is sunny and airy, with a great decor touch. The place is also very convenient to get in town and from public transportation. Highly recommended.

  • It was a short visit but we have a fabulous time staying at Tim & Jess's place. It is a very convenient area and close to city. Food and facilities are just a doorstep away. Jess is very friendly and (email hidden) to help you with directions and how to get around in Singapore too. They have a very nice balcony to enjoy the sunrise and sunset. that's my favourite place :)
    I would recommend this place to anyone, it is so home-like and i'm sure you will left your heart here.

  • It's a beautiful place and it's close to Orchard Road. The nearest MRT station is Newton, which is a station away from Orchard. Right outside the condominium, there are a couple of eateries and a 7-11. The pool is beautiful but too bad we didn't have the time to truly enjoy Sui Generis's facilities. Jessica is very welcoming, friendly and always there to answer our questions. I would definitely recommend this place and suggest that one should stay for more than 3 three nights to truly get to know Tim and Jess and to really enjoy the wonderful property.

  • We only dropped in for a 2 nights stay. After staying with Jess and Tim, I fell in love with Singapore all over again! The accommodation was superb! The place is immaculate, clean and airy. The bathroom is not attached to the bedroom but it is a 5 star hotel standard!! The queen bed fits 2 Asian size max. Both Jess and Tim are great hosts. She even prepared coffee for us! and breakfast was awesome. It rained that morning and we spent the day lounging in the balcony! We love the place and will call it "home" anytime. For us, it's a 15 min walk to Newton MRT, very convenient. Round the corner there is 7 eleven and some eateries. We tried the Chicken Rice there, it was good. Overall, staying with Jess and Tim was a warm 5 star experience!!!
