Finding fully furnished apartments before I arrive

Post by mwpaustin » Sat, 04 Jul 2009 11:58 am

Hello,

I have been looking at the various apartment listings and have been having difficulty determining which are fully furnished vs. not. Am I doing something wrong? Can anyone recommend a website / agent / other option for trying to do this in advance?

I will be arriving 26 July for 4-6 months. I would like to find a fully furnished, 3 BR, with easy access to an MRT line that goes by Dhoby Ghaut (or is in the general area). In my ideal world, it would also have a pool, play area, etc. Also, it needs to be approved by my company and able to single, direct bill the company for rent + utilities.

Thanks in advance,
Melissa

Do a search for "service" apartments they are all fully furnished and can be rented for short lease periods.

You'll be very lucky to find somewhere that you can rent for 4-6 months, shortest leases are for 12 months

It looks like Serviced Apartments are my best option. I didn't really need daily maid service but I guess that's what I'll be getting.

Is anyone familiar with this website? http://www.moveandstay.com/singapore/default.asp They seem to have lower prices than going to the actual properties' websites.

Thanks! Treetops doesn't appear to have a 3 BR option.

Here are the three I am looking at ... would love any opinions or experiences:

Riverside View, Address:30 Roebertson Quay N/A 238251 Singapore/ Singapore

Somerset Orchard, Address: No 160, Orchard Road Orchard 238842 Singapore/ Singapore,

Far East Plaza, Address: 14 Scotts Plaza Road N/A 228213 Singapore/ Singapore,

Serviced Apts

Post by chrisali31 » Sat, 08 Aug 2009 10:25 pm

Dont know if its too late but we stayed at Great World Serviced Apts. They had 3 bed apts and great facilities. Free shuttle bus to Orchard every half hour which took 5 mins and daily "workers" shuttle to CBD every morning. made some great friends there as everyone is in the same boat. shipping in or shipping out. Good Luck
