Newly remodeled! Our beautiful Tropical Apartment is on the 3rd floor of an original 1920's Singaporean Heritage Shophouse. Flooded w natural light, it features a stunning kitchen island counter w treetop views and a private ensuite bathroom. A peaceful retreat amidst the hustle&bustle, yet walkable to many amazing cafes, bars, local food and indie shops. Only an 8min drive to Town, there are two MRT stations within a 5 min walk, and iconic 24-hour Mustafa Shopping Mall is right next door;)!

The space
Welcome to the Shophouse Enclave! Experience the eclectic charm of living in a re-fashioned and reloved colonial-era Singaporean Shophouse. Our home is lovingly filled with unique, one-of-a-kind vintage pieces from all over the world, and we take pride in being a Superhost for all our guests: do check out our other reviews for a better idea of our hosting style;) p.s. We are also currently having a launch promotion for our newly furnished Shophouse, thus the lower rate that you see -- enjoy!

Our home is part of an iconic, beautifully-conserved Singaporean Shophouse row - home to the vibrant Jalan Besar neighbourhood (we also have two other Shophouses next to this one next to this on the same road, feel free to check them out!).

★ Please Note ★: This listing is for our self-contained apartment within a larger Heritage House, it has its own private ensuite bathroom and kitchenette within:). Located on its own entire floor, it is one of the 5 private suites available in our Shophouse. NOTE: There is no lift as we are a conservation status heritage building and thus it is STAIRS-only😊

Our Tropical apartment is located in the front building on the 3rd level (two floors above ground) of our Shophouse and features an arched loft ceiling. Here you'll find a welcoming cosy retreat designed in a Tropical-modern style, accented by natural dyed fibres and glossy black tiles which add a dash of luxe to the space - it has all the modern comforts you might need: from a coffee machine to an air steamer! Regardless if you're coming to Singapore for a holiday, work, study or just some much-needed "me" time😊....Our Tropical loft is a quaint and eclectic escape from the hustle and bustle, yet perfectly located in the heart of Singapore and all the wonderful local food joints as well as mom-and-pop shops along the hip Jalan Besar stretch. If you’re after craft beers, dim sum, local coffee shops, bakeries and more, you’ll find a bit of everything in this neighbourhood with some digging -- an ideal base from which to experience our local culture.

Apart from all our original vintage pieces and accessories that we've collected over the years (an occupational hazard!), our apartment also comes with soft and fresh bed linens for every guest, as well as clean towels, your own kitchenette (electric stove top + microwave), an electric kettle, hair dryer, and refrigerator for storing any food items you plan on whipping up from the comfort of your own apartment.

Every apartment also comes with flat screen smart-TVs....with lo' and behold - Netflix!! (For all you traveling couch-potatoes out there who just want to enjoy a lazy night in with a movie and snacks..;)) Do note: Local channels are not provided:).

Should you be traveling with a 3rd companion and are happy to sharing your space in closer quarters, pillows and additional fresh linens can also be prepared for an extra comfy Single-sized foldaway bed in the room that can be set-up at the foot of the Queen bed -- do kindly request on booking if needed.

◾️24/hr Check-in via Electronic Door Lock

Guest access
Your gorgeous Loft is completely secure and private on its own floor with its own ensuite bathroom and private kitchenette cum dining area. We have also provided some useful, basic necessities as listed above.

These are the following complimentary Shared facilities on the ground floor of the Shophouse:

1) Laundry area with washer, dryer, iron, clothes stand + complimentary detergent so that you may have your long-awaited Laundry day and recharge for the rest of your trip! ;) We allow all our guests to use these free of charge as long as they return things to the way they are:).

2) Large central kitchen with full cooking facilities including oven, stove top, microwave and refrigerator. Guests are allowed complimentary access to this for their own LIGHT cooking/Food Prep only. Feel free to use as many utensils and dishes as you like, but please remember to wash them after use and return them to the common area.

3) A lush and eclectic waiting lobby/entrance foyer for you to lounge in with some of our vintage furniture curated from all over the world as well as personal memorabilia and books amidst the lovely plants and foliage:D

All our guests are welcome to enjoy this co-living space on the ground floor and mingle with other like-minded guests if preferred!

Other things to note
• Our house is STAIRCASE-ACCESS only. There are NO LIFTS as we are a heritage conservation-status Shophouse and are required to keep the building's architecture in its original form. If you have mobility-issues this particular loft might be unsuitable for you as it is located two floors above ground, but we'd be happy to recommend our other lower units or ground floor unit if so!❤️

• Please note that the skylight windows in this room are fixed so they can’t be opened, however there is abundant light and you will be more than comfortable with the fan and air conditioning in our home:)!

• Please be honest about the total number of persons coming along/your purpose in Singapore when inquiring. This will help speed up our booking process. :)

• DO read through the House Rules first before inquiring/making a booking request so that you are completely up-to-date on what to expect in our home before confirming:)!

• For long-term staying guests (3-months or longer), we are also able to organize a lovely cleaner who stays next door for a complimentary once a week cleaning of your apartment. Shorter stays have this option as well, but are chargeable at her usual hourly rate.

• As we are an Airbnb home NOT a hotel, we appreciate your common courtesy and understanding to keep the peace and tidy up after yourselves before you leave! :)

We love sharing our home with you all, and we hope that you will enjoy our humble abode too❤️

Recently voted as one of the hippest neighbourhoods to stay in Singapore, the hustle and bustle of Jalan Besar where we are means that everything is just a stone's throw away — from heaps of indie-cool hipster coffee joints/eateries next door and throngs of famous local food streets, to two large shopping malls 2mins walk away (one is open 24hours, and the other has an integrated MRT line within that takes you downtown in 2 stops) — this district is the ultimate foodie destination for locals and tourists-alike! We are situated along the quiet, Petain road row of elegant Shophouses, which means that solitude and rest are well within means as well for those who appreciate a comfortable respite in.

Hi there, I'm Shu! ☺ A self-professed food-lover and design-aholic;) I believe in living well, laughing often and loving much thus my ardent quest for great food and conversation has led me on all sorts of travels around the world. Likewise, an undying thirst for design and all things beautiful always has me trying to bring the world back to our own doorstep in Singapore;)! As a guest, I appreciate the low-down and tips on unusual experiences and amazing food/drink joints that only locals know about;) I also make it a point to treat the homes I stay in with great care and respect, leaving everything as it was when I arrived - I believe the experience of staying in someone else's home is priceless and ought to be treated in kind☺ As a Host, I take great pride in keeping our Shophouse Enclave a truly unique and lovely experience for all our guests because what I love most about our home are the people we share it with!:) So if you are a design aficionado/food-lover/culture vulture, or just basically an easy-going person without major hangups looking for a home-away-from-home with great personality, do drop us a request as we would love to have you! If all else fails, just be nice and I'm sure we'll love you anyway;))

*** Hi all!☺ As I am currently overseas and mostly on the road travelling for work, I have very limited access at the moment.

Peace and Love, Shu ***

We are not staying in the Shophouse as we like giving our guests all the privacy they need:); we also operate via a simple fuss-free Self-Check in procedure. Do feel free to reach out with any questions!
