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 Shangri-la, Raffles, Fairmont, New World, etc, the area speaks for itself..
You can walk day and night in a secure neighborhood. :)
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!
With high ceilings and beautiful narra hardwood flooring, it 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 chair
- a bar / breakfast table with bar stools
- a set of nesting tables
- an entryway full-length mirror & long bench
- a small Sentry safe for your valuables
- Sony 32" LED television (with cable tv), Sony dvd player, iPod/mp3/iPad/tablet speaker
- A/C, 7 cubic ft refrigerator, tiny electric fan, microwave, oven toaster, induction cooker, rice cooker, electric pot
- iron and ironing board, 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 one bedroom unit, where all you need to bring is your luggage! ;)
My studio is in a very well-maintained residential building, with 24hr security and maintenance service, a nice-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..
-Greenbelt Mall, across the street, is where you will find:
The Ayala Museum, Supermarket, Bookstores, Banks, Money Changers, Beauty Salons, Spas, Pharmacies, Hardware Stores, Postal services, and Cinemas, Cafes (Starbucks, CBTL), fast-food, bars, restaurants of different cuisines - you will be spoilt for choice!
-Further walk will lead you to Landmark, Glorietta, and SM (nearest MRT 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
Mall of Asia and Greenhills - 20-30mins
Taxi cabs abound!
I will not bother taking the bus or jeepney, unless you are feeling adventurous! :)
Note that there is no allotted parking space.
Off street parking in the area is free from 5pm-7am.
The mall across does have 24hour paid parking, if needed.
Other Things to Note
If you are looking for a bigger place or one that fits 4 people, I also have a one bedroom unit that would perfectly fit your needs, here:
I also just listed a new apartment for 3 people, just one minute away, here:
Our host-guest agreement for this listing:
*Maximum number of guests: 3
Please choose the exact number of guests that will stay. Children age 5 & above are considered as additional guests.
*Check in / Check out: While I am normally quite flexible on this, depending on the overlap of guests, please assume that check in is at 2pm and check out is at 11am, with no provision for leaving your luggage.
If you are requiring early check in or late check out, kindly message me first.
Please report any damages or breakages.
I allow visitors.
*No parties, sorry.
*No smoking or heavy drinking.
I normally do prefer for guests to send me a note regarding their plans prior to booking, but I understand that some guests need a place to stay at the last minute; that's why I've enabled "instant booking".
Lastly, everything included is clearly stated in the description.
If you are unsure of something, or if there are things you wish to know or request for, kindly message me first so we can work something out.
Our second time in one of Andrea's apartments and like the previous one this was great. A different setting and building, right across the street from Greenbelt. Everything you could need. We needed some recuperation days and found Andrea's tastefully designed place to be exactly what we needed. Thanks Andrea!
Her flat is a comfortable place to stay. Looking around it, you will feel the love and passion she has in it. The small details are amazing that you would really want to stay there.
But more than the place, her role as a host is very impressive. She would make sure that your questions are answered, message you in the morning if you slept well and just give time to help to whatever needs you have.
I guess this is not just a place to stay, I felt it as a home away from home.
Thank you very much Andrea!
It was a perfect stay as comfortable as home. Clean apartment, comfortable bed, high speed wifi, great shower, nice shampoo provided. It's strategic location, just 5-10 mins to Greenbelt malls. Andrea is a great host and she is willing to feed you any info you're required. I definately will stay here again for my future trips to Makati. :)
Andrea's place is clean and has the perfect location in Makati. if you love shopping and dining out, this is the place to be!! It is literally across to Greenbelt mall. I stayed here twice and wanted to stay on my third for 13 days but unfortunately her place was already booked. Andrea is very nice and sweet. She sends messages to see if you need anything and comfortable with your stay. Definitely will come back again!
We had a fantastic stay in the most lovely and cozy apartment. Andrea is the perfect host and was always extremely supportive and helpful. The apartment has everything needed for a home-feeling. The housekeeper Sally did a very good job as well. The apartment is in a perfect location within the immediate reach of everything important in Makati such as Greenbelt, Glorietta, Landmark, Ayala Avenue etc. It is very quiet, perfect for a relaxing stay. Thank you Andrea, we'll definitely come back!
This apartment is lovely. It has a New York vibe and also feels so homely. We could have stayed forever and the bed is oh so comfy!
Andrea is in contact to make sure everything is ok and it was perfect.
The location is the best in Makati for access to the Greenbelt complex just across the road, again I could live my days wandering Greenbelt it is an oasis in the bustle of Manila. I couldn't recommend this place higher, we will return for sure. Thanks Andrea.
Just got back from a 3 week stay in Manila and stayed at this fantastic condo..I really cannot find enough superlatives to give the fitting accolades for the host and the apartment..Everything was 5 star..from location, cleanliness, security and most especially the very hands on reception by Ms. Rubio. If you are looking for a fitting accomodation to ensure that your vacation will be comfortable, look no futher, book this condo and you can rest easy that you will get your money's worth. We are loking forward to staying here again in our next visit.. Thanks again, Andrea!

Having been a guest many times during my travels inspired me to open up my heart & home 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. :)
