Our home

Ok, so I cheated a little and listed it as SINGAPORE, though technically we are in Malaysia. Please read on!!!! Our home is a brand new 2 storey luxury home located just 10km from Singapore. We commute to Singapore on a daily basis via the vehicular causeway at Tuas that links Malaysia and Singapore. Although the drive to the Singapore CBD is 35km and involves a border crossing, it is worth the commute for the extra space & lifestyle. If you are a family, this is a good option for an exchange. Lots of space but close to Singapore sights. A choice of chilling out in the garden by the pool or a busy day in town is yours for the taking. The house has 4 bedrooms, beds for 7 plus a cot or kiddie mattress on the floor. There is an office, playroom, large living/dining & 2 kitchens! All mod cons of internet, cable TV, aircon, security system, and CCTV. There is a dedicated BBQ area, and the outdoor space encases the pool area. Our maid lives in & has her own quarters, so as not to disturb, but is there to help with daily housework, cook & clean. In the garden there is a cubby house(playhouse), swings, slides, trampoline and lots of space to run around. We have 2 cats and fish in the pond but the maid attends to those. It is a very low mainentance exchange and can be as busy as you like or as quiet.I must stress you will need to hire a car to get around as public transport is limited.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a family of four, Geert 44, Rochelle 41, Eloise 5 and Alexander 3.5 years. We have our permanent home in Perth, Western Australia but are living in Asia for a few years. Geert is working as an Engineer in the Offshore Oil and Gas industry in Singapore and Rochelle is currently stay at home mum but used to be in engineering herself. We have family in Europe (NL, Breda) and would like to visit at least once a year. Our main preference for an exchange would be Holland at the moment to see elderly relatives. And more specifically Breda area. Though other parts of Holland in the south would be a consideration. We are also keen to travel to the USA/Canada in 2009/2010 incorporating a week in one place before doing a 'road trip'. Any questions, please feel free to contact me. We take great pride in our own home and would treat yours with the same respect as our own.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house sits in a quiet street on a valley with neighbours either side, but no-one behind and so a private back garden. We actually sit on the top of an open valley about 150m wide. Although the house is in Malaysia, it's proximity to Singapore means you can do all the tourist things there with relative ease. A short drive takes you to sights like the Singapore zoo/night safari, China town, Little India, Clark Quay and Sentosa. Singapore's bustling metropolis at Orchard Road is fabulous place to shop and eat out. Of course there are Malaysian attractions, Kuala Lumpar is just 3.5 hrs away by bus or car. There is horseriding and numerous golf courses close to our home. Great if you are a golfer....and we have 2 sets of clubs for you to use! The house is in a new gated community, part of the IDR which is a new economic growth area in Malaysia with lots of foreign investment. There is lots of things being built at the moment including a clubhouse (which we hope our guests can use). There is a new marina 5km away, a local shopping mall being built and a big mall 14km away for great eats and cheap shopping. We are yet to fully explore the local sights ourselves. But Senaii airport is just 35km away and you can do cheap local flights to anywhere in Malaysia from there.
