Awesome Noel and family

It was a delight hosting Noel’s family in our awesome fully furnished one bedroom condo at Eastwood City during their family vacation. They were very appreciative and took good care of our unit. We’re so lucky we always have wonderful and interesting guests. We enjoyed our short chats with them — we gave them tips on how to enjoy Eastwood and they told us about life in London.

Funny story. Every now and then, people forget.  We have our aircon units professionally cleaned every several months, and we clean the removable filter after every guest leaves.  Once, a few weeks before the scheduled professional cleaning,  we forgot to clean the removable filter.  Then Noel and family arrived.  The next day they called and said their son is a bit sensitive to dust and asked if we can clean the aircon?

We were so embarrassed, so we rushed to Eastwood armed with a portable vacuum cleaner to at least clean the removable filter and exterior.   After cleaning the aircon and profusely apologizing (we normally clean everything, how can we forget the one time we have guests who are sensitive to dust?), we chatted with Noel and family.

When they left, we found the notes that Nathan (the son who is sensitive to dust) left on the guest book, and the first page had this:

Air BnB Feedback
For Mary Ann and Bobet

WWW ( what went well )

  • Location of the apartment (very near shops and restaurants)
  • Quality of the kitchen, toilet and bedroom, including the bed and TV
  • The fantastic view
  • The access to the internet
  • Sofa – Bed was also comfy

EBI (even better if )

  • Improve the bedroom door, it is very squeaky
  • Air-con by the sofa bed us very noisy
  • bathroom would usually flood after showers


Well Nathan, we just put some oil on the bedroom door hinge, so it is no longer squeaky, After the scheduled professional cleaning of the aircon, it now purrs quietly like a contented cat. We put silicone gutters in the shower to keep the water inside the shower stall.

Thank you for the 8.5 out of 10 rating, and the constructive criticism, Nathan!
We trust you’ll find the condo a “10” and a much enjoyable place to stay in when you return!

We will definitely recommend your place to our family and friends!

God bless you and your family,

Best Deal and Perfect Hosts in Eastwood

One cannot ask for kinder hosts than Mary Ann and Bobet. They’ve thought of just about everything that will ensure a most comfortable stay in their cozy apartment – fast and reliable Wi-Fi, cable T.V. , local phone, microwave, oven toaster, hot and cold water dispenser, washing machine, drying rack, iron, towels, hangers, toiletries and even food items! Yes, it’s a small place, but they packed it well and neatly that I even had space to do my morning exercise routine 🙂 We easily got our Uber rides from this place to take us around the city. Of course there were days when staying in Eastwood and just walking around the shopping mall was enough to fill the day. I don’t think one can get a better deal than this considering all the amenities, facilities, security and convenience that this place offers.

Alexis and family stayed only a few days, and we had only a few rounds of email and text messages before they arrived, but we had a pleasant time talking to them (as if we’ve known each other for a long time) on arrival and prior to departure. They were very appreciative and took very good care of our unit. We’d love to host them anytime.

We also loved the note she left in our guest book.

Mary Ann and Roberto,

Thank you for being so welcoming, accomodating and understanding! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Your thorough booklet/binder was extremely helpful too. My boyfriend, sister, and sister’s boyfriend really ejoyed our time were in Eastwood. I am really looking forward to to staying here again in the future. Until next time, take care, and please keep in touch!

Hannah stayed at the Awesome Vacation Condo in Eastwood

Awesome Hannah

Hannah  was very easy to communicate with from pre-booking and kept us abreast of her arrival plans. She was really friendly, warm and took amazing care of our condo.   Hannah extended her stay in our unit, we are very happy that she did!  We would have loved to have her longer had it been possible.

She was really a very nice guest. Very appreciative and polite. She left the place sparkling clean. Meeting young and vibrant people like Hannah is one of the reasons why we love having guests.

She left us this note on our guestbook:

This has been a wonderful retreat in the heart of Eastwood. I love the bright and open feel of this place, and how peaceful it is to be up here away from the heat and bustle of the city. Thank you for always checking in on me and for how organized and detailed your instructions have been! It is rare to find such a place!

The condo was bright, clean, and quiet. It has the benefit of being on a higher, outward facing floor, which means amazing views of the city and lots of light. It is well-stocked (toiletries, snacks, laundry detergent, etc) far beyond any other condo I’ve rented in Eastwood, which was a lovely surprise. The two AC units, water dispenser, and washing machine were absolute life savers. And one of the most remarkable things about this condo are the hosts. They really go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need, and are always very quick to respond to any questions. They make your experience feel personalized and comfortable, like they are welcoming you into their home. Would definitely stay here again!


We look forward to having you back, Hannah!



Enjoy the Ice Cream and Desserts Fair @ Eastwood Mall

Eastwood City never fails to surprise me.  Eastwood City vacation living is always an adventure.  This week, in the most unlikely place, I discovered very wise advise.

Life is short, eat dessert first!

Life is short, eat dessert first!

I’ve always instinctively known this, so I eat my dessert first.  Also during the meal, and also after.  But that is another story.

This week, Eastwood City Mall featured the Ice Cream and Desserts Fair, a small but goodie-filled collection of dessert kiosks.  I’d normally go around tasting every freebie dessert, but I sort of felt guilty ( after consuming gazillions of calories at Gillian Gail Dessert Buffet last Sunday, and capping  my Thursday evening seafood buffet dinner at Tong Yang Megamall with sixteen scoops of ice cream), so we had to settle for gelato ( two scoops for each of us).\

Let’ let the pictures tell you more.
