- HOWEVER, in the event of any damage or loss, I would appreciate it if we could talk about it at your convenience. I am sure we can find a way, a win-win alternative, which will make us both happy. Remember, it is my goal to make your stay comfortable and stress-free, as much as possible.

- BESIDES above-mentioned house rules, the condominium owners association and the building administration of Victoria Towers (where the unit is located) may, from time to time, supplement or amend existing rules, laws and regulations. But I am sure, those amendments, if any, would be for you and your friends or family's well-being and protection. Please do take some time to read the tenants' manual. You will find a copy of it inside the unit.
- SHOULD you have any queries concerning these friendly house reminders and building regulations, please do not hesitate to let me know. I am just an e-mail or phone away. If I am not available, I will make sure my representative or my condo manager will take care of your queries or requests.
- THANK you in anticipation of your kind cooperation. And I wish you a safe trip to my condo apartment as well a pleasant and enjoyable stay. :-)
This unit is located in an excellent location with easy access and transportation options to other parts of the city. The shops, restaurants, bank, and super market in the building are very convenient features.
The condo itself was clean and taken care of. The beds were comfortable, and plenty of comforters, sheets, and pillows were provided by the host.
All in all, my family and I enjoyed our stay here very much and highly recommend this host and his condo!
We stayed at Nars condo for a week and it was hassle-free. Lorenz,the condo manager, is very thoughtful and helpful. We arrived at midnight and he accommodated us and even have some groceries ready (water,soap,toothpaste,coffee, etc.) The security guards at the lobby are courteous and friendly. The condo is accessible to malls, restaurants, banks and bars. It is also easy to get a cab from the area. Definitely a nice place to stay whenever you are in the Metro.
Customer service and location are excellent! Special thanks to the condo manager, Lorenz, for going out of his way to help us with some logistical problem. I live in a 1-story house so having the bedrooms in an upper floor was a little difficult on my knees. Other than that, the unit itself is in very good condition.
Right upon confirmation of reservation, Nars provided as much information as he can about the condo. When we arrived at his condo, his condo manager welcomed us and was very helpful in everything that we needed. The place was clean and very accurately described as in the description here in airbnb. I love the location of this condo, very accessible to everywhere. It's so easy to get around Manila from this area because taxis are everywhere even during late in the evenings or very early in the morning. There's a Starbucks and grocery on the ground floor of the condo building that makes it so convenient if we needed anything. Restaurants and banks are just steps away too! Security is not an issue too because there's 24hours security guard on duty. The Gold's Gym on the 6th floor was a big bonus to us. =)
What I really loved about this condo is that Nars and his condo manager are very warm in welcoming us. They made sure that our stay was worthwhile and comfortable. We would definitely book his condo again when we visit Manila next time. Very highly recommended!
About the Host, Noy
I am from the Philippines but right now I am in Saudi Arabia for a contract work.
During vacation, I used to visit another country on my way to Manila from Saudi Arabia. I love to explore places and experience other people's way of life — even for a short while during a stop-over.
In the Philippines, I own this fully-furnished, 2-bedroom-2-floor, secure condo at Timog Avenue, Quezon City (Metro Manila).
Now that I am back again to Saudi Arabia, I thought of offering my place to anyone who wants a secure, tranquil yet easily accessible place where everything one may need —while in Manila— is within one's reach. :-)
ABS-CBN is one of the major television networks in the country which a guest can visit. And it is just a few minutes walk from the lobby of the condo. :-)
GMA is one of the leading television and film networks in the Philippines. The TV station is about 8-minute taxi ride from the condo.
