10 SIBEI Stunning AirBnB In JB For Big Groups From $11 Per Pax!


Planning for big groups is so annoying. Hotels are too small to accommodate everyone, while private bungalows can get too pricey to rent even if everyone were to split the costs. I feel you, so I made it my mission to compile 10 SIBEI CHIO homestays that’ll not burn a hole in your pockets!

1. Starry, starry night, paint your palette blue and gray

Dreaming of a Starry Night? You can make it a reality with this Van Gogh themed homestay! Regardless if you’re a fan of Van Gogh, you gotta give it, this place is extremely vibrant with it’s Van Gogh inspired color schemes and Van Gogh artworks plastered on different platforms.

Even the rooms consists of distinct themes, from One Piece for the King of Pirates to Hello Kitty for the kawaii princess in you. Homestays aren’t necessarily just for you to rest your head, you can have a bbq session at the garden while singing karaoke!

Wake up in a modern cottage when you stay in De Garden! The space is well ventilated with plenty of windows, illuminating the house with sunlight. The rustic walls contributes to the whole cottage vibe, yet it doesn’t feel ulu because the furniture provide hints of colours which brightens up the place without feeling too overwhelming.

4. Legoland? Leggo la!

Having a private pool in the house is definitely a bonus. You can leave your children to play in the pool while the adults can lepak indoors while they crack a cold one together. Will highly recommend for families and friends going to Legoland or Hello Kitty Town, it’s merely a 10-minute ride away so you don’t have to worry about long travelling time (which is often accompanied by x100 toilet breaks in between with big groups)!

No, it’s not a KFC outlet. However, FatBird Villa will make you a happy bird with their Balinese-inspired home and surrounding nature. Located amidst nature, it really feels like you’ve walked into a Balinese spa resort, complimented by little accents around the house. By the way, you are welcome to bring your own mahjong sets, they’ll provide the table for your mahjong nights!

6. Live like royalty for a day!

This homestay advertised itself as a luxurious bungalow, and they are not lying. Just look at the master bedroom! Makes you feel like a ‘master’, doesn’t it?;) If your group is driving different cars to JB, they have a porch big enough to store 4 cars, so you don’t have to worry about parking.

You know how some toilets can make you feel slightly claustrophobic and sometimes it only consist of a small space to shower? This homestay’s toilet is HUGE, like really huge, and it’s equipped with a bathtub too! Personally, I feel that the toilet is an important factor to consider as I’m extremely particular about where I…take a shit. After all, a comfortable toilet enables healthy pooping, and healthy pooping means I have a functioning digestive system to makan all the goodies!

8. B&W colonial bungalows in JB?!


Source

You’ve definitely heard of the iconic colonial B&W Bungalows in Singapore and the price tag that comes with it because of historical values. Have a feel in JB instead for a lower price and access to resort facilities like horse riding and golf course.

The house manager, Lienda, will be looking after the guests during the stay, so you know you’re in good hands! She will assist with cab booking and provide advices on places of interest if you’re struggling to find places to go for a group of 10. It’s tough to plan for big group activities on overseas trips, so it’s always nice to have a local to help facilitate with the planning.

9. ResortVilla

This is my favourite homestay out of the rest on the list because of the unicorn floats! #instagramtime Definitely going to jump in the pool after a busy day of exploring to cool down. There’s even an outdoor kitchen and bbq pit by the pool so you can feast while lazing on the floats!

If you’re just going for a staycation and less focused on travelling, you can use the resort facilities that are of walkable distance. Within the house, there’s an air hockey table and mahjong set to keep you entertained. The rooms are extremely huge and fitted with tatami beds, it’s definitely big enough to fit the entire group comfortably!

10. De Green Villa

For this house, the pool is located in the courtyard, so there will be no pervy uncles peering through the ledge! If you wanna bbq, you can order from the host instead of lugging bags of meat from Tesco. There’s 6 bedrooms altogether and each of them have their own attached bathroom, so you don’t have to queue up to poop!

It’s located in a pretty private area, so make sure to buy all your maggis and snacks when you go grocery shopping!
