We loved this place and would definitely stay again! It was clean, spacious, bright (with neutral colour palette), and great value for money.
The place had everything we needed, including laundry facilities near the gym on the ground floor and a simple, clean kitchenette to prepare and cook light meals and snacks, which we used multiple times a day, traveling with two, hungry little kids.
Alex was easy to contact via Airbnb and email, and left simple details for us to contact her agent/s for check-in and assistance, as she was overseas during our stay. Her agent, Kim, was friendly and helpful and made check-in an easy, welcoming process. This was a relief for me traveling alone with two young ones (their first time abroad).
We all immediately felt at home in the apartment, which was on level three of the building. The pool was on level two, within view of our large kitchen, lounge and bedroom windows.
The kids loved swimming in the pool, as did my husband and I. He arrived a couple of days behind us, and I was able to let him into the building without disturbing the sleeping kids.
The split system air conditioning in each bedroom, and living area was great as we could control the temperature in each space and all stay comfortable. The showers were spacious, clean with hot water and good pressure. Great after a dip in the pool or a sweaty day exploring Singapore!
I was pleased we had so much fridge space for all of the local goodies to keep us energised! ((but no tea towel, so maybe BYO if you plan to cook a bit).
Location was good - about 15 minute walk (with two kids, faster if you're childless!) to Aljunied or Paya Lebar MRT stations (about 7 stops and a $2 single fare to Orchard Road) and Alex leaves a clear map with instructions for you. Easy to hail down a taxi except on Friday afternoon/evening when most taxis are hired for locals going out to enjoy their weekend. Alex left a list of Taxi numbers to call and Kim kindly did this for us on our last day, for a cab to the airport (just in case we couldn't hail one down).
Laundry facilities are available behind the gym on ground floor (washer/dryer) $5 each cycle, which we used and were very happy with.
There's a lovely, peaceful ground floor lobby area/garden to enjoy takeaway meals with friends or family and we would have used the gym if we were staying a day or two longer.
There were friendly grounds keepers in the building who gave me change for the laundry (needed five, $1 coins). Oh and the complimentary room service was a bonus! Fresh towels on our second day. Brilliant.
We loved our stay here and would highly recommend to anyone visiting. It is kid friendly, if you're thinking of taking your family too. Thanks Alex and Kim! We will be back! xx
