Long read:

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, it would take 15 minutes. And to Orchard Road from the mrt nearest the house, that's about 18 minutes including one change - this is faster than a cab, particularly during peak hours when it can be hard to find one.

There is wi-fi connectivity throughout the house.

Breakfast is included in the price.

Bed configuration is as follows:

Bedroom named 'Red Palm' (8 sq m, ground floor) - one double bed, no ensuite bathroom (maximum 2 people); size of bed 1.9 x 1.55m. The bathroom with w.c. and shower is just next to the bedroom.

In case you missed it - I repeat again that Red Palm is a small room with a queen sized bed. As such, there is not much space between the wall and the bed on three sides. I have added two trolleys as bedside tables and a vertical pole that has hooks and hangers for your clothes. There may not be enough space for all your luggage especially if you are two people and not travelling light. I suggest you leave your luggage in the storeroom which is also on the ground floor, some ten feet away, and take out things you need.

It is air-conditioned and has a ceiling fan, and free wifi.

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

There is 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 semi-detached corner 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.

Nearby there are two basketball courts open to the public, a 420-metre walking/jogging track, and two playgrounds.

Should you prefer to exercise outdoors, 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 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.

  • Bianca and Bianca's home were charming in every sense.The experience was truly an enjoyable one for me . Bianca is very a professional and intelligent host and I enjoyed immensely our conversations on so many different issues which helped my build my knowledge and enhance my experience of Singapore and its people. Far too brief a stay this time but I hope my next stay can be longer.
    Bianca's attention to detail is fantastic , its the little things that stay in your mind and leave with a positive impression and they certainly did for me. Great location, easily accessible to the metro station to both the Airport and the city.. Loved the stay and look forward to a return visit

  • My husband and I stayed at The Breezy East "Red Palm" for 7 Nights early June 2014.

    "Red Palm" may be a smallish room but the amenities Bianca provides for our use, amongst others, e,g, hair dryer, bathrobes, fluffy clean bed linens, comfortable bed and even an I pad, more than make up for the small size.

    Bianca has a beautiful house which she has very tastefully decorated and well maintained. She has a very well equipped kitchen facility. Most commendable is her effort in whipping up substantial breakfast for her guests and it varies every morning.... Very creative.

    Bianca can make a top-notch bnb hostess, communicates very well with her guests. We were made to feel very much at home.

    The Breezy East is just 3 minutes walk to the nearest train station. Location is good.

  • I stayed at Bianca's charming house 5 nights with my mum, only the room was too small for me and my mum, and then we moved to leopard room,we really enjoyed our stay with Bianca. We are overwhelmed by her kindness and hospitality. Her house is very nice and tidy, and it is very convenient to travel from there to the spots of Singapore, since it just take you 3 minutes to the train station. Bianca took us to the local food market and drove us to the local shopping mall, which are very different with the tourist place, it is very nice to have local people guiding you around. I highly recommend Bianca' house, if I have chance to travel to Singapore again , Bianca's house will be my first choice, no hesitation.

  • I stayed with Bianca for 3 nights. Bianca (email hidden)e tirelessly answered all my questions. For me it's THE place to stay in Singapore.

  • 作为第一个中文留言的客人,感觉到很荣幸。首先,Bianca的家非常干净漂亮,交通很便利,步行地铁站3分钟,就像是美剧里的villa一样,真的太棒太棒了,有整洁的庭院和宽阔的房间,阳台的风景超棒,家里的摆设都很精致,每一处都是用心设计的。其次,Bianca本人非常nice,也很热情,每天的早餐都不重样,而且很丰盛。我是第一次一个人出国,她很耐心的帮我设计着行程,和我一起分享旅行的照片,最后一天晚上我们还一起吃宵夜看美剧,简直就像是我生活在这里一样amazing,第三,Bianca的家里有五只猫咪,因为我也养猫,所以感觉这里像天堂一样。如果你不喜欢动物,也完全放心,Bianca会让猫咪呆在自己的屋子里,不影响到客人。
    这四天的经历真是太完美了。我想如果没有选择这里,新加坡之行一定会遗憾很多。希望更多的中国客人能看到,能选择Bianca,和她一起分享中国的故事。

  • Scene 1:While going through her profile i had figured she is someone who's very clear and precise in everything.This somehow was one major reason i was hesitating contact her in first go.
    Scene 2:Me and my husband (email hidden) and we were allowed an early check in.Turns out, it was this clarity and precision which made our stay extremely comfortable.Anything that we needed was right there in the room/kitchen etc,neatly labeled.And honestly that was very impressive and considerate of you,Bianca.
    So do i recommend this place to others? Yes Definitely
    Her place is some 5 mins walk to MRT.
    Its quiet close to Airport as well! So incase anyone reading this,plans to take MRT to her place,it would be very convenient.
    She made us excellent breakfast on both mornings.
    She (email hidden) and is happy to help/guide her guests about her country as much as any other that she has visited.She shared a few experiences with us about India,Bali.
    Overall it was a pleasure (email hidden)!
    Thank You so much Bianca :)

  • Bianca (email hidden) and this room, and especially the bed, was very comfortable. It was certainly spacious enough for me, and I do not travel light. The private bathroom next door was very modern and clean. Access to the MRT was a few minutes walk. Highly recommended!

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!
