Bonjour! Je m'appelle Bénédicte et suis maman à la maison de 2 garçons.
J'aime accueillir chez moi et suis impatiente de vous faire découvrir Saint Germain et Paris!
I stayed for 3 nights in Benedicte's home with my wife.
Arranging the stay:
Benedicte was very easy to communicate with. She replied to messages and queries quickly which made us all the more confident booking a stay.
Very easy from the airport (even most of Singapore's main attractions). Just get off Paya Lebar station and take a 1-2 minute bus ride (#70 or #70M bus) to Versailles Apartment station (2 bus stops away from Paya Lebar).
Arriving and room stay:
Though Benedicte herself was not around during our stay, her helper Rayma was of great assistance. We arrived a little earlier than the check-in time but waited just a while for the room to be cleaned. As expected, we were provided with re-loadable MRT cards and a security access card for use with the side entrance of the compound. The location of Sunny Spring was ideal for us because it's in between the airport and the main urban center/s (e.g. Orchard, Marina Bay, etc.). It's a "healthy distance" from the hectic parts of Singapore. Geylang Rd and its many eateries and convenience stores are just a 5 minute walk away. The room itself was comfortable, cozy, clean, and made us feel at home - much different from the experience of staying in a hotel! The room amenities were as described and we had no issues with the bathroom. Overall it was a cozy place to stay. Benedicte's family was not around so it was very quiet while we were there.
There are 2 bust stops just outside the compound. Paya Lebar (Green/Yellow line) and Dakota (Yellow line) are the closest MRT stations. We prefer to go to Paya Lebar by bus (2 stations away) and take it from there since we had a 3-day unlimited MRT pass card (which we bought ourselves) and I wanted to minimize walking times for my pregnant wife.
No problems, we just informed Rayma by SMS that we were checking out around 8am, left the MRT cards and security access card and departed as scheduled with no unexpected delays or hangups.
We highly recommend staying here. It is well worth the price to stay in a place that's accessible, safe, and clean.
We are a french family planning to relocate in Singapore. My wife and I were on a recce for a week before deciding to move.
Even though I know Singapore quite well (I used to travel there a lot in my previous job), we needed to have other points of view. Benedicte and Foucault were very kind and transparent, so that we could have very interesting and deep exchanges on our various experiences, familywise as well as professionally.
We thank them for sharing their daily reality with us and help us meet other expats.
The condo is easy to access, by bus, taxi or MRT (Dakota Station is closer than Paya Lebar), and the swimming pool is the best place to debrief after days of various appointments all over the city !
The reservation was canceled 40 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We really enjoyed our stay in Singapore. Benedicte and her family were friendly and helpful giving us advice about things to do and see. The room was large and clean with an ensuite bathroom. The house is close to the train station making getting around Singapore very cheap and easy. There are also two very nice swimming pools in the complex. We would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful facilities and comfortable bed! We enjoyed taking the bus and train (MRT) into the city and around town. Thank you Benedicte for a lovely stay!
Apartment is between Airport and inner city
Benedicte was very helpful
Bedroom was nice, bathroom was simple but ok
Kids can be noisy in the morning
Benedicte and her family are very good and friendly. Her place is nearby Paya Lebar MRT station. Moreover, the Ez-link card which provided by them is very useful for the tourist like us. However, their condo is near the bus stop and easy to get a cab from there too. =)
I had been there for three nights and four days, it just feel like own house because the environment is very comfortable. So, once again thanks Benedicte and Augustin for the room. =)
My daughter and I stayed Bnedicte's place for 3nights. Benedicte and her husband are cool french couple and their two boys are so cute. The condo is convenient to take a bus or MRT. The room we stayed was nice and have a big TV. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you Benedict e !
We really enjoyed our stay at Benedicte's and her family's place :) The room is very nice, big and bright with an own bathroom. Furthermore, we liked the pool very much where you can swim even in the evening after a long, exhausting day. Great location and really close to the city. We could also stay a little longer because our flight was pretty late at night, thank you! :)
We had a really nice stay with Benedicte and her family in their flat ... The room is spacious with a private bathroom! Even a swimming pool is part of the environment ... That's pretty sweet regarding the climate in Singapur! Although the place isn't in the very heart of the city it is absolutely cool situated ... in one of the more authentic parts of the city and near to different metro lines (the best way to explore the city). Benedicte let us leave our luggage in the room as we had an evening flight ... so we could spend the day in the city, drop by at their place on the way to the airport and get our stuff and the get easily to the airport!
And by the way: we also recommend taking the pancakes as breakfast! Yummi!
Merci beaucoup Bénédicte pour le très sympathique commentaire apporté.
Nous avons été ravis de vous rencontrer et de vous héberger. Même si ce fut court nous avons pu apprécier votre (email hidden) votre gentillesse à tous les quatre.
Au plaisir de se revoir !
