About this listing
Situated in a prime area, like my two other apartments - w/ parks, shops, & an array of restaurants nearby..
The Asia Tower, an Ayala property, is right across Makati's most prestigious Greenbelt Mall.
Whether you're in transit or staying in the city, this is definitely the place to be!
This is THE part of Makati you want to be in.
Being in the high-end hotel district of Raffles, Fairmont, New World, Shangri-La etc, the area speaks for itself..
You can walk day and night in a secure neighborhood. :)
In a corner facing a peaceful side, my little abode would be your respite from the heat and bustle of Manila!
The layout 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.
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 turns golden by day's end, and makes for a relaxing space!
With high ceilings and herringbone narra parquet flooring, the space is fitted with:
- a queen-size orthopedic bed with a foam topper (60"x78"), 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, a filipiniana cabinet, kitchen cabinets, and bathroom stand
- a work or vanity desk with mirror, and comfortable swivel chair
- a bar / breakfast table with bar stools
- an extra folding table
- a full-length mirror & long bench in the entryway
- Sony 32" LED television (with cable tv), Sony dvd player, iPod/mp3/iPad/tablet speaker, small Sentry safe
- A/C, 7 cubic ft refrigerator, tiny electric fan, microwave, oven toaster, induction cooker, rice cooker, electric pot
- iron and ironing board, hair dryer, a built-in water heater (hot/cold shower), and 110v/220v outlets throughout the unit
It is stocked with cookware, cutlery, dinnerware, glasses, utensils, little kitchen tools like a bottle/wine opener, and a Bodum coffee press.. High thread count fresh linens and plush towels too!
Floor to ceiling block-out curtains ensure you have a good night's sleep..
Free use of unlimited WI-FI internet, cable tv, and landline telephone for local calls..
Dues and utilities are all inclusive. :)
There will also be a welcome basket with a start up set of toiletries, bottled water, and some snacks upon check-in..
I never charge extra for cleaning..
A complimentary visit from my housekeeper (with change of towels and disposal of trash) will be every two or three days. :)
As I live nearby, I am at your disposal throughout your stay should you need anything! :)
You may choose to stay for one night, one week, or even a month!
I look forward to meeting you and having you stay at my studio unit, where all you need to bring is your luggage! ;)
My studio is in a very safe and well-maintained residential building - with a doorman, 24hr security and maintenance service, a good-size swimming pool, gym, and same-day service launderette.
You cannot ask for a better location than where we are!
Aside from safe surroundings, everything you could ever need is never more than 2mins away, on foot!
-7-11 and Mini-Stop, two buildings away, provide a quick snack!
-Legaspi Park, with its weekly Sunday market and jogging paths, is just around the corner..

The Ayala Museum, Supermarket, Bookstores, Banks, Money Changers, Beauty Salons, Spas, Pharmacies, Hardware Stores, Postal services, Cinemas, Cafes (Starbucks, CBTL), fast-food, bars, and restaurants of different cuisines - you will be spoilt for choice!
-Footbridges will lead you to Landmark, Glorietta, and SM (nearest metro rail station)
All other places to see and be are easily reached by cab, which can be hailed anytime!
Driving distance, traffic-dependent:
-Airport terminals - 15-20mins, passing the Skyway 5mins away!
-Culture in the city of Manila - 30mins
-Other Shopping and Recreation:
The Fort and Rockwell - 10-15mins

Taxi cabs abound! Uber app is the best!
I will not bother taking the bus or jeepney, unless you are feeling adventurous! :)

Off street parking around the building is charged hourly, but is free from 5pm-7am.
The mall across does have 24hour paid parking, if needed.

Another great experience at one of Andrea's Makati apartments! I had the pleasure of meeting Andrea on this visit and was able to hear about her travels--she really has an eye for detail and is constantly on the hunt for new, beautiful furnishings for her apartments! I was only in the apartment for one night, but the bed was comfortable, the wifi was fast and reliable, the bathroom (and the rest of the apartment) was impeccably clean, the building was in a good location, and the apartment felt safe. I'd recommend this to solo travelers or couples! It's a fabulous space.
Andrea is what all Airbnb hosts should aspire to be! Polite, caring and answers all emails/questions in a quick manner. No wonder why she has Superhost status!
This is my second stay here, as has been said by many guests before me, it is really the perfect base to start your adventure in Manila and is close to lots of shopping/food options!
The area itself is very safe and the building has a security door and security guards.
I'll definately stay here again when I visit Manila!
Andrea was an amazing host from start to finish. She is definitely the SUPERHOST that she is. Andrea was very prompt in responding to all of my inquiries. Andrea is genuinely a nice and kind person. I honestly feel like I have met a new friend in Makati. Andrea's apartment is located in the prestine Asia Tower across from Greenbelt 3. Perfect location in Makati. Everything is literally walking distance. Building is also very secured with the kindest security guards in Makati. The building and apartment is very Manhattan, New York. The apartment itself, is just like the photos. Comfortable, cozy, stylish, and efficient. Everything you would need is there. The bed is comfortable. Her couch reminded me of my own couch back home. A couch you can just sink into after a day around Makati. The bathroom is super cute. Rain Shower head had strong water pressure and her water heater heated up the water well. The details that Andrea put in her apartment was nothing short of superb. I definitely recommend Andrea and her apartment if you need a place in the Makati area. I myself will book with Andrea next time I am in the area again. Thank you for being a great host Andrea!
Perfect and convenient location in Makati. The apartment looks exactly like it was in the photos. Very clean and well maintaned with beautiful small touches. It has all the essentials you need and more. Andrea even provided toiletries, snacks and a bottled water for your stay. Not many airbnb places do this :)
The best airbnb accommodation I've stayed at in Manila. I will definitely stay here again.
I wasn't able to meet Andrea personally but she made sure that my stay at her place among other things were alright. She is an amazing host.
If you want to be where the action is (Greenbelt, Glorietta, Ayala) and be taken cared of, stay at Andrea's place. Everything is walking distance and she is very accomodating.
Andrea was really friendly and very quick to respond to any queries which I had as I am new to Air BnB. This helped make the process really easy for me.
The apartment was really nice and cosy and the location was excellent. Very close to Greenbelt in Makati and seemed a very safe area. The welcome notes were also very informative on what things to do in the area, nice restaurants etc..
I would highly recommend this apartment and Andrea and hope to stay again the next time I return to Manila.
Andrea was very thoughtful and accommodating. The unit had a stylish yet homey feel.
I've now stayed at all 3 of Andrea's properties and they are each unique and with a common thread, all are very well presented and in amazing locations.
Not to mention, Andrea is the bEST hostess with the mostess ever. She has figured out how to accommodate her guest while checking in on us w/o ever being perceived as over bearing.
I'll continue to give her properties first priorities when I visit the Philippines.

About the Host, Andrea
My most favorite thing is being in a space that is characterful, light-filled, and comfortable.
Having been a guest many times during my travels inspired me to open up my heart & homes to those just like me.
My journey as a host has been nothing but extraordinary! It has become a passion of mine to make every guest's experience a memorable one. Every meeting is a new friendship found. To this day, I still look forward to meeting new travelers, as well as welcoming back old friends.
Currently listed are my three apartments in the Greenbelt area/CBD of Makati City, Philippines. :)
