Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our house is nested in a quiet residential street of the heritage Katong/Joo Chiat district of Singapore. It is a 4000sqf, 4 floors, comfortable modern 'semi-detached' with lots of daylight and very well equipped. It can easily accommodate 7-8 people and is specifically suitable for a family with children. There is a lap pool on the side of the house, a well planted tiny garden behind the dinning room, a large roof terrace and all bedrooms come with en-suite bathrooms.

It is in a calm, charming neighborhood, a short Uber ride away from anything you would want to do in Singapore.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Katong/Joo Chiat district rightfully earns its place amongst the most bustling residential neighborhoods in Singapore. Amongst other things, it is known for its colorful, picture-perfect shop houses, rich heritage, and dizzying array of fantastic local food - including various Chinese, Indian, Malay, Vietnamese and western restaurants, as well as island-wide reputed hawker centres. It is near a 10' bicycle ride (or cab ride) from East Coast Park, a long stretch by the sea, popular for jogging, roller-stake, and all sort of family activities.
It's a very pleasant local neighborhood, only 15'-20' ride away to most popular 'tourist' areas such as Little India, China Town, Orchard Rd or MBS. Without the crowd and so much more Singaporean.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Our house is on Onan Road, which is a quiet residential street parallel (and just one street away) from the vibrant Joo Chiat Road. Joo Chiat itself is known for its many local restaurants. The whole broader neighborhood is laid back, family-friendly, and filled with history.
We are lucky to have Mr and Mrs Mohgan's Super Crispy Roti Prata, who has been declared the maker of the best pratas in Singapore (out of 72 tested) literally around the corner from the house. This is a favorite for a morning roti prata for all of our visitors!
We often go to East Coast Park with the kids, where we meet friends for lunch - It is a long park following the sea coast line on a long stretch. You can bike there all the way to Esplanade, MBS, Gardens By the Bay and Marina Barrage.
The rest of Singapore remain a quick car ride away (Uber works in Singapore btw, and taxi are cheap by US/EUR standards)

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We are often traveling, and therefore are open to both simultaneous and non-simultaneous exchange with families keen to visit Singapore for a couple of days or up to 2-3 weeks when we are away. Families with children are welcomed, and kids would have access to many toys and books.
Smoking is okay outside the house or on the roof terrace.
We have someone coming 2x a week to maintain the pool, and a gardener every now and then to take care of plants.
House has airco in every room but we ask our guest to turn it off when leaving the house as electricity is expensive in Singapore.
