About this listing
Our comfortable apartment is perfectly located for your stay in Manila, with a grocery and dozens of restaurants and retail stores right outside the lobby, and Bonifacio High Street just 2 blocks away.
* We would be happy to accommodate you for your stay in Manila. But please send a note inquiring about availability before trying to book. If this unit is not available or is unsuitable for you, you may want to check my other apartments in the same building:
(my favorite apartment, newly renovated)
* Generally the apartment fits 2 people, sleeping in the Double/Full bed. However, it can accommodate 3 if the third person wants to sleep on the couch.
The apartment is a 37 sqm., one bedroom flat, with a separate kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom. The unit comes complete with the following amenities:
- Sealy Posturepedic mattress (Double/Full size - 54 x 75 inches)
- Air-conditioning in both the bedroom and the living room
- Television in the bedroom and the living room, cable tv, and HDMI cable
- Ample closet space
- Water heater for the shower / bathroom

- Toilet paper and shampoo/soap are provided for a one day stay. If you require more during your stay, there are several 24 hour convenience stores as well as a regular grocery store within 20 meters of the building entrance.
The building has 24 hour security.
Guests have free access to the pool which is the biggest and nicest in the area, gym, and tennis court.
Interaction with Guests
I do prefer to meet all my guests, although this has become a bit more difficult recently since my office has moved from right across the apartment to an entirely different city. But I am always accessible through email or mobile phone.
The apartment is wonderfully located in the breezier east side of Fort Bonifacio / Bonifacio Global City, between the Manila Golf Course and the Mind Museum. Everything is within walking distance (which is a rarity in Metro Manila), and the neighborhood itself is the safest in the city.
There is a grocery store, several 24 hour convenience stores, banks, restaurants, and dozens of other stores just a few steps outside the building.
Getting around is no problem, as cabs can easily be hailed throughout the day (save for the 5pm - 7pm rush hour). The bus to Makati stops 100 meters from the building.
Cabs can also be hailed on your smartphone if you have one, using the GrabTaxi or EasyTaxi apps. Uber service is also available throughout Metro Manila.
If you have your own car, public parking is available on an hourly basis in the basement of the building as well as in the basement of the adjacent building at a rate of PhP45 for the first 2 hours, and PhP25 for every hour thereafter. I also have a dedicated slot in the basement of the building which may be used by guests for PhP250 per day. Please let me know if you would like to avail of this, since I make the slot available on a first come first served basis to my guests.
Other Things to Note

Location is the best for someone looking for an affordable in a very nice location like Global City.
Unit is nice very close to all amenities.
Although some cockroaches are visible on the lounge area and I think the bathroom needs to be updated .
Miguel was very pleasant and easy to communicate with. He even offered to send a free cleaning service midweek. I appreciated the complimentary water bottles and bathroom toiletries as part of the welcome kit. When you're checking in with lots of luggage, and need to freshen up or wash your hands, the last thing you want to do is search for the soap in your suitcase or buy one. The flat is cozy yet very comfortable. Decent size for the partitions, with a proper bedroom door for more privacy. Decent bed for a comfortable sleep. He also sent extra pillows and beddings for my child. The kitchen came with all that we needed. It was a real plus to have a washing machine, landline, and 2 cable tv's! Wifi connection was good. All in all, a very pleasant stay. I will be back to try Miguel's other units.
A year ago, I came to Manila for the first time and stayed at Miguel's place and had a fantastic time. This time, without a doubt, I made sure to book again with him. As always, Miguel was extremely quick to respond, super communicative and flexible, and just an awesome host all around. I was also delighted to see that the few small suggestions I noted to make the guest experience even better were taken to heart and implemented. Bravo, Miguel! Thanks so much for being a great host!
The host is very accommodating and prompt to response in our request. The place is nice and clean.
We love the place, very clean and highly recommended. I will stay again in the place anytime.
I stayed here for 3 weeks & was really comfortable! The location is stellar. I needed to be close to St. Luke's hospital, which is a nice 10-minute walk in a really safe neighborhood. The supermarket is across the street, and there are so many coffee shops & great restaurants surrounding us. There's even a fantastic vegan café on this block, where I became a regular! Facing the courtyard, the apartment is quiet & has a nice view of the tennis court & pool. The pool is really clean & absolutely wonderful, by the way. And Miguel was quick to reply with anything we needed. I had to extend my stay, but this place was booked. Still, I ended up renting another of Miguel's units in the same apartment complex! :)
I had a good stay. The apartment is in a great location and everyone was friendly and helpful.
