Customer Service is one of my primary need when I look a place to stay outside Cebu, And Ms. Nathalie delivered it. It was very nice to have a business with her because she is very accommodating and provided our request to make our stay very convenient. I can reach her anytime if ever we needed some request. Thank you Ms. Nath :)
Had a pleasant stay at Nathalie's place. Very close to MOA which is great. Everything's working well in the unit. Clean and well decorated room, complete stuff just as described in the listing, mineral water with dispenser is a plus! Nathalie is very easy to talk to, accomodating, responds immediately to inquiries and she's very nice to have let me stayed a few more hours beyond the check out time. Would definitely stay here again.
Very clean and well equipped flat. Great location, good air-condition, good security, nice swimming-pool etc.. I never had the pleasure of meeting Nathalie but she was very professional in all her explanations and all went smoothly. A great host and I will be in contact with her again next time I´m in Manila
The place was affordable, nice and safe just a few minutes away from MOA for my shopping (website hidden) stay here was very pleasant and definetly will stay here again .
We had two short stays in Nathalie's apartment. Although we did not meet Nathalie, communication with her was very smooth and she responded rapidly to all my emails; we had no problems with the check-in and check-out procedures either.
For us, the big plus points of this apartment were its location, near to the MOA mall, where there are plenty of restaurants to eat in, and not far from the airport, and the beautiful swimming pools.
The apartment itself is very small but perfectly adequate for a short stay for two people. It is very modern and was very clean both times we arrived. It is nicely decorated and well equipped, and the provision of hot and cold drinking water was appreciated. It is also nice that the bedroom area is separated from the living area.
There were, however, a couple of negative points which I think it is worth highlighting for potential future guests: 1) the bed is not a full-sized double bed so it is a little tight for two larger people (like us!); 2) although we were aware there was no wifi in the apartment itself, it is worth noting that even with a 3G connection on our phones it was very difficult to access internet in the apartment; furthemore, the free wifi internet connection in the lobby was very poor; and 3) there is no hot water in the shower, and although you can theoretically get got water from the drinking water machine this is not very practical.
In short, the apartment was fine for a short stay but without a reasonable internet connection (at least in the lobby), hot water or a full-sized bed I would not stay there again.
In summary, this apartment
Very nice and CLEAN place. It's my first time to use Airbnb and I am so satisfied with my first try. Definitely going back and recommending this place for friends who wants to stay around the MOA area or somewhere near the airport. I haven't met Nathalie personally but she was so quick with my queries and her instructions were very clear, you will not have a hard time at all. The place was so nice and clean and complete with amenities like television, DVD player, a fridge, a bottomless mineral water, rice cooker, microwave, etc. Her interior design is also commendable. Definitely an up for grabs stay at MOA.
About the Host, Nathalie
Hi. I am a homemaker and recently, I just passed my bar exams. :)
I love Filipino and Chinese food. I enjoy short trips and staycations. I love Personal Finance books. And I love meeting new people.
I just gave birth to a wonderful baby girl and my hands are full taking care of her. There will be times when I won't be able to meet personally guests who will be booking with us. But it's still all good. :) Definitely, I will make arrangements for a hassle-free check-in procedure when this happens.
I am quite flexible as a host. Please make yourselves feel at home in my condo unit. However, please also care for it as if it is your own... meaning make sure you leave it clean and complete, and in perfect working condition... just the same as when you first entered it.
