As you can see from the map, we are located three minutes by foot (291 m) from Kembangan mrt (EW6) which is very convenient if you are zipping around Singapore. You could take the mrt from Changi Airport and be at our house within 35 minutes - and that's includes the walk from the train station to the house. By taxi from the airport would be about 15 minutes. And to Orchard Road, that's about 18 minutes from the nearest mrt station including one change - this is faster than a cab, particularly during peak hours when it can be hard to find one.

Breakfast is included.

Bedroom configuration is as follows:

Bedroom named 'Plumeria' (area, 21 sq m, second floor) - one double bed (size 2 x 1.45 m), and another double bed (size 1.9 x 1.5 m), one ottoman that converts to a single bed - maximum five people

It is air-conditioned and has a ceiling fan. There is free wifi connection throughout the house.

Children, aged ten and below, who are sharing the room with paying adults, are free.

In the bedroom there will be an electric kettle, instant coffee/tea sachets, a landline phone with intercom to all rooms and a safe. There is also a hairdryer and IPad/IPhone/IPod docking device which comes with radio and alarm, and an IPad.

More about the house - this is a hosted stay - I live in the house. Landed corner semi-detached house with small but pretty garden, koi pond and artfully decorated rooms. You will have access to ground floor living and dining rooms, as well as the kitchen, should you want to cook. If cooking, please do the washing-up. Please help yourself to what condiments we have.

There is a washing machine (no dryer). Laundry is on a do-it-yourself basis. There are pull down poles under cover so drying is not a problem.

Within a minute's walk you have access to two basketball courts, two playgrounds, as well as a 420-metre jogging/walking track, all open to the public.

We are 35 minutes by foot from the South China Sea. Just follow the park connector southwards and get a feel of residential Singapore along the way. When there, the East Coast Park provides ample opportunity for food, cycling (you can rent bikes there), camping (you need a permit), swimming, etc.

PLEASE READ THIS IF INTERESTED IN BOOKING:

1. My rates are non-negotiable.

2. As I am sharing my home with you, I would like to know briefly more about the purpose of your visit, who is in your party (the relationship), and you need to upload a frontal face photo in your Airbnb profile. I need to see clearly what you look like. If you book without sending a suitable photo, I will still ask for one before I accept.

3. The person enquiring should also be needing accommodation.

4. The purpose of your stay with me should only be for genuine overnight accommodation. I am not interested in hosting for personal or business events, and photo shoots.

5. My daily rate is based on the profile of the tourist or business traveller. Out after breakfast and back in the evening - early or late. If you intend to be in your room the whole day, you must let me know at the time you make your booking, as there will be a surcharge for extended use of air conditioning.

6. Check in/out time 12 noon. Please realise that I cannot commit to early check-in/late check-out at the time you make your booking. If you need a guaranteed early check-in or late check-out I suggest you book an extra day pre or post the core period. Should you have to vacate your room by 12 noon, you can leave your luggage in my storeroom until you need to go to the airport. There is also a small spare bathroom you could use to freshen up.

7. I sometimes get asked if house previews are available before you book - the answer would be no. The photos you see of the house and rooms are accurate; if they weren't there would be some mention about this in guests' reviews. At present, I am only entertaining short-term accommodation and, as such, I feel previews are unnecessary. Should you have a specific question in mind about the room, however, I would be very happy to answer via email.

8. I have indoor cats who mind their own business and will not approach you except for one very friendly cat. So if you are very allergic or scared of cats, perhaps this is not the place for you.

9. house rules:
strictly no smoking indoors
switch off air conditioner, lights, fan, and water heater when you leave the room
no visitors without prior permission - I might add that I don't expect your visitor to stay longer than half an hour and they are to be entertained in the living room.

  • This was the second time we stayed at Bianca's home and, like with the first stay last year, this time it was truly amazing, too! This time we booked the larger "Plumeria" room, as we were travelling with my sister (total of 3 people) and it was perfect for our small group (although the room is so big it could easily accommodate a family of 5, if that is what you are after). The room, as with the whole place, is exceptionally well organised and furnished and fully equipped down to umbrellas and sunscreen which you always forget to bring with you on these trips but are always so needed - it's just a real testament to Bianca's thoughtfulness, consideration and care in making sure her guests are as comfortable during their stay as possible. The breakfasts prepared by Bianca every morning were delicious, with different traditional flavours offered every morning. We thoroughly enjoyed the conversations and all the fantastic tips Bianca gave us for things to do and see around Singapore - the fact that Bianca is a born and bred Singaporean and so willing to share with her knowledge and experience about this amazing place really added to this fantastic stay - thank you, Bianca! If you are reading this looking for great accommodation in Singapore you should stop right here, as this is the one! Go ahead and book any of Bianca's rooms, you will not be disappointed!

  • If you ever had a dream host, Bianca would be the one. She has put herself in your shoes and knows exactly what a traveller would need. We stayed at the Plumeria for 5 nights. It was a gorgeous room with extremely comfortable beds that were so welcoming after a day's walk. EVERYTHING was provided for, from toiletries to hair dryers ( even hair straighteners!), band aids, mosquito repellent, ironing board, you name it. There were coffee & tea sachets, and the folding umbrellas were lifesavers when we were caught out in the rain. The iPad in the room was also installed with many kids app which kept them entertained. I especially liked all the personal handwritten notes to tell us where things were.

    Breakfast was my favourite time of day. We thoroughly enjoyed conversations with Bianca and other families staying there, and my kids got to make a new friend too!! We were pampered with a sumptuous spread each day, and Bianca has so thoughtfully served something different for the 5 mornings that we were there. There were always fruits, and her banana cake was heavenly. Her coffee? Simply the best. She puts her heart out into everything she does.

    Bianca has her way with kids and mine simply adored her. You can never go wrong with choosing the Breezy East. Thanks Bianca for having us.

  • This was our second time to choose staying in Breezy East with Bianca. As it always, the house is spacious, beautiful and comfortable. And it is only 3-minutes walk away from MRT station, easy to travel. The host, Bianca, is generous and considerate. You can find almost everything in the room that you may forget to take: umbrella, bandage, insect repellent, aloe lotion,maps and MRT card. My daughter has also enjoyed the stay as she coud have fun with the iPad games, toys and the cats. Really thanks, Bianca!

  • I stayed 2 nights at Plumeria room with my friends. It certainly was the BEST room condition we hope for. All furnitures were really fancy and comfortable, restroom was clean and tidy. Every night we enjoyed the the breeze at the roof-top couch and massage chair. Last but not least, Bianca was amazing host. Very considerable, generous, and well mannered. We had such pleasant time in this house and It made my first visit in Singapore so wonderful! I highly recommend this house to every visitor who is interested in home-decoration, design, nature and quiet relaxing. :)

  • Bianca was a wonderful host and the accommodation fitted our family very well.
    This is how Airbnb is supposed to be.
    Thanks again!

  • Our family of six stayed with Bianca in the "Leopard" and "Plum"rooms. Bianca was a fabulous host and if you are visiting Singapore, we would definitely recommend a stay in her beautiful, "homely" and comfortable house. Bianca is a very warm and welcoming person and really went the extra mile to ensure our stay was enjoyable. The rooms were tastefully furnished and Bianca has really put thought into providing everything yu could possibly need - from an umbrella, met cards, extra pillows, iPad, sewing kit etc. Her local knowledge of the best places in Singapore to visit, eat and public transport options was extremely useful. We looked forward to Breakfast as it was delicious (and different!) every morning and Bianca was very flexible in terms of the time we ate. The neighbourhood felt very safe when coming home late at night and proximity to public transport was excellent. This was our first booking through airbnb and we thank Bianca for making it such a great experience, we would definitely return for another visit.

  • This room is really comfortable for 2 person sleeping with their own bed! Undoubtedly, my husband and I will choose Bianca's house whenever we come to SIngapore!

  • I made my decision to stay Bianca's house by all of the great reviews, and I could feel exactly the same as the people. The house was very near to the MRT station. I found out the map on Airbnb shows a wrong house which is much further to MRT. So I would like to inform you that Bianca's house is very close to the Kembangan station. The breakfast everyday was amazing. All 4 of us enjoyed every morning! The room was very clean, the beds were very comfortable. The things all we need were all in the room. So convenient! I would like to say THANK YOU to both Bianca and her helper(sorry, I don't know her name..) for how they would be helpful and supportive for us all the time, especially for my niece! She won't forget you all!
    I totally would like to recomend you Bianca's house to stay!
    See you soon again, Bianca! :)

About
I am Singaporean - born here and am of Eurasian ancestry, in my fifties, now retired (used to be in retail). I like the idea of hosting - providing a safe haven for travellers has always appealed to me. And the income I get from it can go back to the house by way of repairs and renovations. Also, you learn a lot from travellers all over the world and make lots of friends. I encourage everyone to be a host because getting to know people must be one of the best jobs in the world!
