+++++ REVIEWS FROM SOME OF MY PAST GUESTS +++++
“I stayed at Brandon’s place for almost half a year and it was a very happy, pleasant and memorable experience for me. Considering that this is my first ever trip abroad, I was blessed to find Brandon’s place on Airbnb and meet such good-hearted people as my hosts. The place is very quiet, calm and peaceful; sometimes you can even get the feeling as if you live there all by yourself. Brandon is extremely considerate towards his guests and is open to any complaints from their side. Besides, if you have any question concerning Singapore or the slightest doubt on how to get around, you can always ask Brandon as he is extremely knowledgeable about the place and has valuable insights being a local Singaporean. The MRT stations, bus stops, eating places, laundromat, supermarkets and other shops are very near and within walking distance. You can find all sorts of nice and affordable local food here - you will be spoiled for choice. Most importantly, Brandon is very careful in his vetting and selection of his guests. All of them are very quiet, clean, friendly, polite and considerate people. You can be ensured of your safety and personal space while staying here. I would totally stay at this place again and I highly recommend it!”
Lilia, Nizhnekamsk, Russia
“When I first arrived here, it seemed exactly as the picture illustrated on the post, everything was as perfect as it seemed online. Brandon is a thoughtful and gracious host as he insisted to greet me upon my arrival which gave me a surprise. He provided me with all the information I needed, the place is just perfect. The bed is comfortable, bathroom and terrace are excellent. Many amenities located just a few minutes walk. Brandon had excellent explanation and was of great help. He went way beyond to make my weekend stay comfortable and memorable. Thanks Brandon and Woodlands for a wonderful weekend!”

“Located in a quaint part of Singapore. Comfortably near to food places, malls, transport options and if planning to go to JB, very convenient too. All amenities are met, simple but with comforts of home. If you want peace and quiet yet still arms length from community activities, then this is the place. Did i mention cost of living more affordable than in city centre? Singapore experience at a more affordable cost.”

The smooth in/out accessed within the flat everyday was also great.

I had a great time and be back if needs arises. Highly recommended place.”
