Smack in the middle a tropical jungle is this quaint little 3-levels, 75 year old colonial apartment building. Despite the wild setting, inhabited with hornbills, king fishers, parrots and squirrels in the day turning to the nocturnal sounds of wildlife and owls at night - there is hardly a mosquito to ruin your stay!

The design of this beautiful colonial building is an open concept, and since it is situated on one of the highest plateaus with no obstructions around the area, it enjoys strong cooling breezes all year round. Every guest who has graced this dwelling has told me that this apartment is a breath of cool air in this tropical island.

After my description above, one might think that I live in seclusion. In fact far from it. According to the map, we are more central then the entire down town area of Singapore. We are literally 10-20 minutes away from anywhere by cab – the main shopping district of Orchard Road, the historic Chinatown and Clarke and Boat Quays or the restaurant oasis of Club Street. The Central Express Way aka CTE is at our next junction. You can’t get anymore convenient than that.

Unlike my other room. This room is completely private studio with your own bathroom and private access to your room... I won't even know if you come or go. But you want to have anything, all you need to do is knock on my door and i'll attend to you. But you if you are bored in your own studio, just pop by and enjoy my living space, guests are more then welcome to enjoy a glass of wine at my balcony.

As a guest, you will be very much welcomed in my home. So let me take this opportunity to introduce myself. I used to be an entertainer, starting out as a model in San Francisco when I was sixteen, followed by being a MTV and Channel V VJ before I got myself a talk show spot in Taipei, Taiwan. I have now traded glitz and glamor for a Ph.D. I’m quite open on (website hidden); please do check it out if you want to know more about who Rick Tan, (website hidden) really is. I do believe that wisdom is knowledge through one’s experience, so let’s trade stories about our life experience.

I also feel that everything is possible - all you need to do is ask. I’ll make your stay in Singapore an amazing experience that you will brag about it to your friends for years to come. I have been told time and again that I’m a great ambassador for Singapore, so rest assured you will go back with plenty of knowledge, insights and wonderful moments.

You might want to do the touristy thing, but if you are looking forward to a true local Singapore experience, then I’ll show you around whenever I want to catch a breather from my Ph.D. research, I’ll let you know so that you can plan in advance. I look forward to seeing you in Singapore. Rick.

If you like airport pickup please let me know in advance, it's will only cost your SGD$45 for each trip.

Laundry is SGD$20 Per load inclusive of ironing.

To make sure that my guest are comfortable, I will not accept more then 2 adults and an infant of less then 3 year old.

And last but not least, Please be aware that pre-approve does mean that it's confirmed. It's all first come first serve. Please do not wait till the last moment because others might have booked it already and I won't be able to do anything about it.

I'm sorry I have to put this disclaimer down for there were many incidences where people ask me why they can't book it after they have been pre-approve and that's the reason why.

Thanks for checking my dwelling out.

Nice place, in a green and quite area, not too distant from the city since Woodleigh MRT station is at 10 minutes walk. The room is large, clean, comfotable. Rick is very kind, likes to meet his guests and to tell stories on Singapore, he even drove us back at the airport.

In general very friendly and clean country and of course the apartment is good located and clean.
I don't like to write a lot...It was amasing stay in SG because of our host, Rick.
We had a lot of fun together.
Thank you, Rick!

Oh my goodness, I have only one regret about Singapore & that's not getting to hang out with Rick more. I've never met someone who is so switched on & positive about life. Not to mention his unbelievably superb taste when it comes to decorating an apartment. Awesome clean bathroom & super comfortable bedrooms. I can't fault the apartment its just stunning! Almost as stunning as the host...Rick is super friendly & you would be crazy not to stay at any of his apartments. I'm definitely going back, it was even easy access to the city centre. Its cheaper than any accommodation in Singapore & with a host like Rick you'd be crazy not to stay here!
