Any suggestions for vacation rentals

Hi,

We are planning to travel to Singapore on Dec 9 for 3 weeks. We are looking for a place that is close to MRT but not at the Little India or Geylang area. Has anyone stayed at one of those vacation rental apartments ? Any good recommendations ? There are 2 of us, both adult. We hope to have the apartment by ourselves and budget for about S$100 per night. Thanks!

Hello,

There are a lot of serviced apartments in Singapore, but they are more expensive than hotels. Your budget of SGD$100 per night might be unrealistic. Over SGD$300 per night would get you a studio apartment or one bedroom apartment. Usually they have 7 day minimum stays.

There has been recent discussion on this topic on the forum, so if you scroll up this page a bit and type "Serviced Apartments" in the Forum Search Box you will find the recent threads with details of vacation apartments.

Thanks for your reply. I am more looking at those private apartments owners who rent out to tourists. I saw a lot of advertisements especially in Craigslist but not sure whether those can be trusted....

It`s illegal ( and punishable) for owners to rent their properties/ flats/ apartments to tourist/ visitors for the period of less than half a year in Singapore.
