Singapore, Singapore

General description

  • Main home
A Scandinavian-decor apartment in Singapore: You will love the spacious and stylish charm of this 2 bedroom flat (78m^2). It's the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown Singapore, but by taxi (only S$15) you can be there in 20 minutes if you want. You will stay in a quiet, family- (and pet-) friendly neighborhood near a university campus. The flat has all that one needs including a kitchen, bathroom with a walk-in shower, a comfortable couch and a TV, and a queen size bed in the bedroom.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 2 dogs
  • Rodents
We have two dogs: a female named Moerje and a male named Fischbrötchen. Moerje is a lovely and calm dog, a local Singaporean mix with a clear Labrador influence. She can be shy with strangers and other dogs, but responds by being passive and quiet. She will surely warm up to you after a day or two. On the other hand, Fischbrötchen warms up quickly, and is playful and cuddly after he has gotten to know you. He's currently a puppy, but by the time of your stay he will be nearly fully grown. We feed both dogs twice a day (morning & evening) with a mix of kibble and food that we cook ourselves (we will provide you with the cooked food beforehand so you only need to take it out of the fridge/freezer). We walk them three times a day (each time about 15 minutes). If you like dogs, you will love Moerje and Fischbrötchen.

We also have two small rabbits, Wurmchen and Plankton, who are very friendly and kind. They live in a separate area in the living room. Every day (morning and evening) they get fresh food (a variety of vegetables). We buy their food at a grocery store nearby (we will leave a list of bunny-safe food and of course money). We can also recommend this spot for grocery shopping for ones' own needs ;-) Once a week we clean the cage which takes approx. 20-25 minutes. Wurmchen and Plankton have each other therefore they do not rely on you petting them (if you do of course we are sure that they will appreciate it nonetheless).

Our flat is in a calmer area of Singapore with plenty of green around. At the same time, in Singapore you can never be more than about 15 minutes away from the busy metropolitan scene. Within walking distance (about 5 minutes) is a smaller grocery store and one of the famous Singapore hawker centers. A bit further (15 minutes by bus or 5 minutes by taxi) is a bigger shopping mall with a huge grocery store and lots of shopping opportunities (including cute book stores with unusual tourist gifts, but also common brands like Hush Puppies or Esprit). And a little further still (40 minutes by public transit or 20 minutes by taxi) is the commercial and nightlife center, Chinatown, and many other tourist attractions like the botanical garden.

We spend most of our time in the neighborhood, and enjoy activities like playing board games and video games (which will be made available to you of course as well). The flat is the perfect sanctuary in which to relax from a busy day downtown.

Comfort and Luxury

  • 12 floors
  • 3 rooms of which 2 bedrooms
  • Contemporary
  • Television / DVD library
  • Book library
  • Art and music
  • Air conditioning
The flat has been carefully decorated and includes many unique pieces of art that you will hopefully enjoy as much as we do. Our couch is really comfortable and invites you to spend a relaxing evening there with music and wine.

Tourism and Leisure

  • Countryside
  • Forest
  • Museum
  • Zoo
  • Cinema
  • Theater / Opera
Singapore offers the perfect balance of metropolis and nature. It is a vibrant city that is known for its shopping malls and night life, but Singapore also offers many opportunities to connect with nature, for example at the Jurong bird park or the Gardens by the Bay, a nature park with stunning supertrees. Moreover, what has gone rather unnoticed by tourists is Singapore's small distance to neighboring countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia, making it a perfect destination for day trips. For example, the almost Caribbean-looking Indonesian island "Pulau Bintan" is only a 1h45min ferry drive away from Singapore and, therefore, perfect for a little time-out at the beach.
