Whether you're in transit, or staying in the city, this is definitely the best place to be!
THE STUDIO. The layout of my studio unit is ideal for a single person, a couple, or a family with one child.
It can also accommodate a group of 3 adults, if one doesn't mind sleeping on the sofa.
It faces a peaceful side, with a partial serene view. You may opt to leave the windows open, as it is quiet and has a breeze (though not advised during summer in a tropical country ;p),
It gets gorgeous natural indirect sunlight throughout the day, which makes for a wonderful space!
INTERIORS. A queen-size orthopedic bed with a foam topper, soft pillows and a lightweight duvet
A comfortable full-size sofa (enough for a regular-size additional person, should you choose to use it as such)
Ample storage - a good-size wardrobe closet, a wide chest of drawers, and kitchen cabinets
A desk/vanity with mirror, and chair
A bar / breakfast table with bar stools
A long bench
A set of nesting tables
A full-length mirror
A bathroom cabinet
MODERN CONVENIENCES. A Sony 32" LED television, a Sony dvd player, an airconditioner, a 7 cu.ft. refrigerator, a small electric fan, an iPod/mp3/iPad/tablet speaker, a microwave, an oven toaster, an induction cooker, a rice cooker, a small coffee maker, an electric pot, an iron and ironing board, and a built-in water heater, and 110v/220v outlets throughout the unit
Cookware, cutlery, dinnerware, glasses, utensils, and gadgets such as bottle/wine openers are all provided for..
High thread count fresh linens and plush towels are too..
Floor to ceiling block-out curtains ensure you have a good night's sleep..

LOCATION. Everything you could ever need and want is never more than 5minutes away, on foot!
Greenbelt Mall across the street is where you will find:
a Supermarket, Bookstores, Banks, Money Changers, Beauty Salons, Spas, Pharmacies, Hardware Stores, Postal services, The Ayala Museum, and Cinemas..

7-11 & Mini-Stop are just two buildings away too, should you need a quick snack!
Driving distance, traffic-dependent:
Airport terminals are within 15-20minutes, passing the Skyway (which is less than 3minutes away!)
Other recreational places, like The Fort and Rockwell, are about 10-15minutes away
The city of Manila, with numerous cultural sights to see, is within 30minutes away
All other places to see and be are easily reached by cab, which can be hailed right at your doorstep
Taxi cabs abound!
I will not bother taking the bus or jeepney, unless you are feeling adventurous! :)

We felt very warm welcomed at Andrea's place!
Nice, small and cosy apartment with air-con and Wifi. Best situated at the entrance to the greenbelt mall.
Andrea took good care of us and prepared a map and insider infos in the room. I can recommend this location for all Airbnb users and want to come back again.
This is my first time using Airbnb and what a delight to meet Andrea. I arrived at almost midnight from my Narita flight and Andrea waited for me. She was very welcoming, accommodating, and friendly! All I needed to know was relayed byAndrea. Her place was perfect--cozy, relaxing, and close to places I wanted to go. On the following day, my mom joined me at Andrea's condo and she was so delighted to stay at Andrea's "home". Andrea's place was not just another condo unit. It was "home" for my mom and I. We felt the love, comfort, and peace. I look forward to staying here again! Thank you Andrea.
Andrea's studio was everything she reported! Great amenities, location, and location again! But the most wonderful thing about this studio is Andrea herself. She went out of her way to be the most gracious hostess during our entire week's stay. We would recommend this studio to any and all who desire a hassle-free, pleasant and gracious experience. Thanks again to you Andrea!! We will see you again! Stan & Daisy Taylor
Andrea was an exceptional host and incredibly kind and attentive. The studio was gorgeous in a great Makati location. We loved being there. The only thing that may have made it better was if the pool and gym equipment were working; perhaps they will soon be in order. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone!!
Thanks so much for your review, Courtney! :) I feel really horrible that the pool & gym were unavailable during your stay.. I know how much you wanted to cool off in the hot weather! :( The building is upgrading the gym, while the pool had to undergo regular treatment.. :( Perhaps on your next visit, you get to use the amenities! Cheers! :)
My wife and I have stayed in hotels before and we feel that Andrea's condo is perfect for us because it has almost everything we needed to be comfortable for two weeks. She really kept it clean by sending her maid every three days. The main thing that really stick to us is the personal touch that Andrea puts into this. On the first day she met us at the lobby and showed us to the unit every thing that we needed to know and she kept in touch and asked us for anything that we need. Most likely next year we will book again and recommend this unit to our friends.
My experience was very pleasant, first of all because Andrea was the perfect host -- very hospitable, showing genuine concern, and a personal touch that I don't find when staying in a hotel. At the same time, her concern is not intrusive, making me feel that her place is my private sanctuary during the time she allowed me to stay in her studio. She wa easily reached when I needed to communicate with her. Her studio is cozy, well arranged and decorated, with amenities that provide convenience, such as a fast Wifi, a landline, a good size writing desk that also serves as a dressing table. The bed was very comfortable. Shopping malls, restaurants, cinemas, etc. are just across the street. Building security and staff were great, too. Thank you so much, Andrea, and I hope I get to stay in your studio again!
The Place is almost perfect. You have an Aircon, you live just abroad Greenbelt and it's very clean. You even have some Pay-TV. Highly recommendable. The only thing is, that the bed's size is a bit short. I just fit in like that and I'm 1,83m. The hard matress is a matter of taste. But still, that were super minor things and it was yet the best bed I've been sleeping in in the philippines.
We loved and enjoyed our stay very much.
I appreciate the review, Thomas! It was nice getting to know you and Nicole! :) I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay! :)
I also appreciate the honesty! :) Others have found the queen-size orthopedic mattress to be very comfortable; so I agree, it probably is a matter of preference. Perhaps I shall put a foam topper for more cushiness. ;) The length is actually 78" - longer than the standard queen-size mattress in Asia which is 75"; and so for your height, you would probably need in a California queen (or king)! Haha! ;p
Hope to see you both again! Cheers! :)

Andrea's place in Makati is AMAZING!! We absolutely loved the apartment, it was so chic and comfortable. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. The location is fantastic, the apartment itself it so so nice, and there was a launderette in the building that was really helpful - they got all our laundry done in less than 24 hours.
Not only was the place wonderful, but Andrea is so sweet. She met us and showed us the apartment, but also arranged for me to get back something I left in the apartment at the last minute.
We stayed at another AirBnB place a week after Andrea's in Makati (since her place wasn't available), and it wasn't nearly as lovely. Book it, you won't regret it.
I have completely pigged out during our visit so to face the truth, I almost stepped on Andrea's "weighing scale", good thing my hubby caught me and told me it was an electric cooktop!!! Andrea was prompt in responding to my messages. I highly recommend this tastefully-decorated studio at a reasonable nightly rate. LOVE her good eye to detail - a jewelry holder, books, dvd, water, and even bathroom toiletries. We felt at home.
