About this listing
A skip & a hop from prestigious Greenbelt Mall & nestled within the Makati CBD, like my two other apartments, this spacious one bedroom unit will be a calm sanctuary for you to spend a few days or weeks in!
You will especially love its natural light & views!
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. :)
'Fresh and organic' is how I would describe the space.
At 565 square feet (52.5sqm), my spacious one bedroom apartment would be ideal for one person, a couple, a few friends, or even a family of four -- a separate bedroom provides the needed privacy from the rest of the flat.
The whole place gets natural sunlight throughout the day; and the breeze from opposite windows makes the space feel open and airy!
It sits on a high floor and has wonderful views of the Makati skyline & beyond from both the living area and the bedroom.
The sight of mountains, the bay, and even the sunset is a treat! :)
With really high ceilings and bleached narra parquet flooring, the flat is furnished with locally-sourced reclaimed & repurposed wood, and fitted with:
- a queen-size platform bed with an orthopedic mattress (60"x75"), soft pillows and a lightweight duvet in the bedroom
- a convertible full-size sleeper sofa (52"x72"), with memory foam topper in the living room
- ample storage - a good-size wardrobe closet, shoe cabinet, bathroom cabinet, kitchen drawers and shelves
- dining and lounging enough for a group
- Living Area: Samsung 43" Plasma TV (with cable tv), Philips DVD & sound bar, split-type A/C, stand fan, full-length mirror, Sentry safe
-Separate Bedroom: Samsung 32" LED TV (no cable tv), Samsung DVD player (plus a small selection of original DVDs), window-type A/C, ceiling fan
-Bathroom: hair dryer, hot/cold shower
-Kitchen: full-size refrigerator, built-in electric stove and conventional oven, microwave, water dispenser, oven toaster, rice cooker, electric pot, iron and ironing board, and built-in water heater
It is stocked with cookware, cutlery, dinnerware, glasses, utensils, tablecloth and placemats, little kitchen tools like a bottle/wine opener, a Bodum coffee press, as well as an endless supply of purified drinking water..
High thread count fresh linens and plush towels too!
Floor to ceiling block-out curtains ensure you have a good night's sleep..
A pocket WI-FI device is provided during your stay (with unlimited surfing, basic email & social-networking.. although NOT ideal for work/business use or downloads).
Dues and utilities are all inclusive. :)
There will also be a welcome basket with a start up set of toiletries 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 a few nights, a 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! ;)

Communication with Andrea was smooth, clear and quick. The reservation/booking and checking-in process was seamless. Her 1-bedroom unit was just perfect for our family of 4. It was centrally located (just a skip and a hop to Greenbelt mall), and in a safe location. The apartment was very cozy and had a great view of bustling Makati. Andrea is a gracious and thoughtful host who paid careful attention to all the details to make her guests feel welcome and at home.
Andrea was extremely responsive and very delightful to talk to throughout the entire process of booking the apartment, staying there, and checking out. Her apartment is absolutely gorgeous and I wish we could have stayed for longer! Andrea's place is huge with so much more space than two people would ever need for a short term stay. It's also so charmingly decorated and was extremely comfortable. Everything we could have ever needed (toiletries, movies, neighborhood recommendations, etc.) was provided at the apartment. Andrea was also extremely understanding; one night we lost one of our keys and she was very gracious in telling us not to worry! This apartment also has such a good location in Makati. My partner and I spent so much time at Greenbelt as it was extremely easy to access. We took taxis around to most places outside of Makati and our taxi driver from the airport had no trouble in finding the apartment. Thank you for the great stay, Andrea! We definitely want to come back!
My experience was excellent. The apartment was comfortable and cosy and in perfect location, just a couple of minutes waling distance from Greenbelt. Andrea was great host, always available and responding to any request immediately. I would come back and recommend it to friends
Andrea was a great host and her place is amazing! No hassle in locating her place and settling in, and easy check-in and check-out. Very clear, simple instructions can be found in the house. Everything was easy. Will definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting PH. Thanks Andrea for hosting Kelly and I!
Incredible. This was our first AirBnB booking and we couldn't be happier with the service that Andrea provided. Communication with Andrea was great, and she always responded very quickly. The apartment is exactly as described. It's comfortable and inviting, and in a great location.
Andrea was a great host! Her place looked exactly like the pictures and even better! She was out of the country during my stay, but she did everything she could to make sure everything went smoothly and that I was very comfortable at her apartment. She made sure as well to check up on me and reply to me as soon as she could despite being miles away. The ambiance and interior felt so homey and she made sure I felt exactly that - right at home!
Another beautiful and tastefully designed apartment by @Andrea ;-) We enjoyed our stay! Spotless and perfectly situated. Andrea was good at communicating, easy check in/out.

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. :)
