It is my purpose to create a sense of belonging wherever you come from (because I believe home is not just a space, but also a feeling - it’s a feeling of belonging, where everyone is welcome), give you peace of mind, and at the same time promoting tourism industry of my country in my own simple way.

Before booking my apartment, kindly view all the photos with caption for a detailed walk-through of the studio unit to check if it meets your needs and expectations. Read “The Neighborhood” section (just scroll up a a little bit) for the location and places surrounding the building and attractions nearby. Lastly, but most importantly, read the house rules.

The place will be all to yourself when you book.

A photo of your valid ID (passport for foreigners and gov’t issued ID for locals) is required by the building for entry pass and smooth check-in.

Kamusta! Hola! Hello! I’m Jinky. I enjoy painting, reading and cooking. I love to travel, learn different cultures, and buy loose leaf tea and coffee from different countries. So far, I love coffee from Vietnam and loose leaf tea from Taiwan, South Korea and India. With more than eight years of experience (and counting) in real estate leasing management, I’m proud and happy everytime both lessor and lessee sincerely thank me for giving them peace of mind. On the side, I love transforming ordinary spaces and furniture into something special. I believe home is not just a space, but also a feeling - it’s a feeling of belonging. Now, it is my purpose (my WHY) to create a sense of belonging wherever you are from, give you peace of mind, and at the same time promoting tourism industry of my country in my own simple way. There’s no better feeling than adding value in the lives of others while creating value in my life. It’s win – win! I would be happy to share with you some travel tips, best attractions and nice places to eat during your stay here. Let’s be friends and can’t wait to welcome you soon!

During your stay
I can be reached easily thru Airbnb messaging app. I don’t live in the same area (one hour away), but I will be very happy to welcome and send off guests. My hosting style is a little of laissez-faire and just gauging what level of interaction feels just right for a guest, but know that I’m always attentive and just a text away for conversation, feedback or recommendations.
