Living in Singapore, travelling as much as possible and writing about my experiences.
Victoria made me feel welcome and was always there to answer any questions.
Victoria made our stay wonderful. She wrote back always very rapidly with any questions and was most kind as my wife was on a special diet and Victoria left some fruit, beverages and other things I needed as we had a long flight.
The location of the apartment was perfect, with two separate entrances, one closer to the park (which has some fun places) and MRT and the other one on a charming street with many small shops including an organic grocer which my wife enjoyed. That street with shops also leads to the water area with plenty of restaurants. At night we had a bit of a breeze on the terrace which was always welcome in the heat of Singapore. The rooms were just like the pictures depicted with great taste and charm. The kitchen had many utensils and everything we needed. All was kept extremely clean and the helper who came in to clean (we asked for her) was most discrete and helpful. Victoria always very thoughtful left maps and some MRT cards. She has a good description of the area and good suggestions for food (as she writes a blog). She knows the area well. We loved this place so much that we are even considering moving to the same building when we move to Singapore! We will then be lucky to have Victoria as a neighbor. What else is there to say? :).
Thanks for the beautiful review Bruno and Nathalie :) Look forward to meeting again :)
Thanks to Victoria, my family and I had a great time in Singapore. Her apartment was extremely clean with a relaxing scent. Bathrooms were as clean as those in new hotels. Bedrooms, kitchen and living room even looked better than the pictures provided. The living room and balcony were very spacious. Two queen-size beds were too comfy that my family members felt really comfortable.
I travelled with my grandfather, aunt and younger brother. They all enjoyed the swimming pool so much. My brother and I even did work out in the mini gym beside the swimming pool.
From Victoria's apartment, we can reach many attractions like Gardens by the bay and Vivo City by cab within SGD 10 ~ 12. Traveling to Orchard road, Lucky plaza cost us about SGD 8 ~ 10 only. Very convenient, indeed.
We also could find a supermarket nearby which is about 10 minutes by walk. 7eleven is just beside the carpark.
Staying in Victoria's house, we did feel like we were home. All the facilities we need were there for us. She lent us 4 EZlink cards, and even shared with us bread, snacks, eggs, juice and milk from her fridge. So sweet!!
I used to travel to S'pore for biz trip and I found hotels at similar rate in S'pore costly and quite small. However, this time, it turned out to be a different experience for me thanks to Victoria (and perhaps Joe Gobbie ^^)
I'll definitely stay in Victoria's house if I'm going back to S'pore with my family.
Pleasure to have, they had friends staying nearby so I think our little unit was purely for 'sleeping'. We had a really cold snap but the girls told me that they were nice and warm - bit of a change from Singapore though!!
Victoria was a pleasure to host. She's a great communicator – friendly and considerate – and left our apartment clean and tidy. Highly recommended.
Victoria stayed in the bungalow and was a fantastic guest. I did not get the pleasure of meeting her and her partner but had constant communication leading up to their stay. The place was left immaculate and would recommend Victoria to anyone.
Victoria and her family were excellent guests. Victoria seems to be quite an independent traveler and did not require much communication before her trip. Due to an unexpected maintenance issue becoming a problem during her stay we did end up having quite a bit of contact with Victoria - she was always considerate and good to deal with. Enjoy the rest of your travels Victoria you will always be welcome back at our house! K+D
Victoria's family was lovely, warm, kindhearted and very respectful. They were very communicative from the beginning and treated my apartment very cleanly. I wouldn't hesitate recommending them to any host!
Thanks Naoko :)
