Description

The space

Expect a very hospitable, hip and trendy host!
We love to travel and meet new travellers and if you are looking to experience the real Singapore with a 'modern' family, look no further! We are a mother and daughter duo living in this walk-up apartment - we're on the 2nd floor (20 steps and you're there)

(NO ELEVATOR SO YOU GET TO WORK ON THOSE CALVES!)

WE HAVE 3 LIL PUPS THAT WE RESCUED FROM THE SHELTER AND THEIR NAMES ARE KOPI, TEHCEE AND TOASTEE!
(#kopitales OR #tehcee OR #toasteethebischon on Instagram and you'll see them)

The room that you will be staying in is a SINGLE bedroom. There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in our apartment. Needless to say, we provide bedding, linen and free hugs during your stay.

What makes our place unique? THE HOSTS!
We promise to show you the REAL Singapore and not just the touristy stuff!

Guest access

You will have access to a shared bathroom that will be used by our Airbnb Guests (1 other person). If there is a specific timing that you would need to use the bathroom, just let everyone in the house know and they will accommodate and leave it empty for you to use. We have 2 listings on Airbnb so if the other room is vacant, you will have the bathroom all to yourselves.

Interaction with guests

Both my mum & I live in the apartment and we love to hang out with our guests whenever we can. Of course, everyone needs some alone time once in a while but if you ever feel lonely or need someone to talk to, we are always there to have a conversation!

The neighbourhood

The city and airport is a 15-minute cab ride from our apartment. We're also just a stone's throw away (5-15 minutes walk) from East Coast Beach, shopping malls like Parkway Parade, I12 Katong, City Plaza and lots of really really good local food. The BEST durian stand in Singapore is located right outside our apartment! Macau's Tycoon, Stanley Ho, often sends his private jet to Singapore just to pick up the durians and have them delivered to him! A couple streets down is the acclaimed Katong Laksa, 5-star Chicken Rice, Banana Leaf Hokkien Mee, Kim Choo Peranakan Food and Beach Road Prawn Mee! You will never feel hungry when you stay here! There is just too much amazing local food around! Don't even bother watching your weight during your stay!

Getting around

Kembangan and Eunos MRT are both less than 15 mins away by foot and 5 mins away by car. A cab ride there will cost you less than $4. The MRT train is the best way to commute around every part of the city. Most tourist attractions will take you 30 mins to get there by Train.

Bus stop (with Bus Number 15 and 155) is right downstairs our apartment and you can literally see it from the window! No need to wait in the scorching heat for the bus! These busses will take you to Toa Payoh, Eunos, Katong and Siglap.

There is also another bus stop with Bus Number 33 only 2 mins away from our house. Bus Number 33 will take you to Chinatown.

FROM THE AIRPORT
You can take the MRT to Kembangan station then take a cab which will cost you less than $4 to reach our home. If you are on a budget, you can take the MRT to Eunos station then take Bus 155 to our door step. The bus ride will cost you less than $1.50.

Thank you Charlyn and Cecilia for your warm hospitality, thank you for the happiness your three cutie furballs gave us the time we stayed there The minute we arrived we felt like we were at home. The place is so clean and smells nice, I am a woman so thats important Shame though when we checked out I missed you guys, but we managed to say "see you later" to Toastee and Tehcee. Although we havent got the time to chat more but we did enjoy our stay. Oh also we both love the calm neighborhood and the easy access to everywhere, there are four bus stops near the place that we clearly also love about the place!

I stayed at Charlyn and Cecilia's place for one month and whole of my stay was very comfortable. Rooms are always kept clean and dogs are well mannered and so cute. They helped me when I had unclear things and always supportive. It was more like home stay than Airbnb. No wonder why they have high reviews. Thanks Charlyn & Cecilia

My first stay using AirBNB. Celia and Charlyn were perfect hosts. Celia made me welcome, gave me the run down on the home, how to easily get about, and where to head for something to eat. I was very much left to go about my business but help was on hand for any questions I had. My room was comfortable and facilities great for my needs. The three resident dogs, while with sad histories, were adorable and have certainly found out themselves their perfect forever home. The dogs were always there to give the place a homely feel. I look forward to staying with Cecilia and Charlyn when I'm next in Singapore.

Charlyn and her mother, Cecilia, were amazing hosts! They were great sources of information and helped us navigate Lunar New Year. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time and even extended our time. Highly recommend!

We never got to meet Charlyn, but her mother is an absolutely charming hostess. We arrived a little earlier than expected, but she greeted us warmly at the door and gave us the full tour. She was also ready with great tips and ideas for places to go. The apartment itself is well-located in a very interesting non-touristy neighborhood, though it's a little far from the MRT (about a 15 minute walk which you feel in the heat). The three little pups are adorable and very friendly. The bedroom is clean, has great A/C and fast wifi. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Wanderlust by day and dreamer by night. If you are booking a reservation for the walk-up apartment in Singapore, you will be greeted by my look-a-like, Cecilia, a.k.a Wonderwoman a.k.a my mum! She usually does the check-in while I handle the all the bookings online.

My mum and I are avid travellers. I am also very passionate about music and play the piano, guitar, ukulele.

I lived in the US 4 years - 2 years in NY for college and 2 years in Los Angeles to work in music. Now that I have moved back to Singapore, I am working at a digital advertising agency and run my own hyperlocal lifestyle brand at the same time.

As for my mum, she's a full-time dog snuggler to #thebreakfurstclub and she's always there if you need anything at all.

If we are available during your stay, we will show you around our hood, Joo Chiat! There is no place like the East of Singapore. We have good food everywhere and a unique Peranakan culture. Don't forget to get ask us about THE BEST PLACES TO EAT when you stay with us! A food adventure in our sunny island is a must!

We look forward to hosting you in our humble abode!
