Me and my friend stayed here for 4nights.
The apartment was really cute and clean inside and out.
The location was also nice.
So close to the shopping malls and you can easily go to downtown by Jeepney.
The greatest thing about this place is the hostess Rose.
She took us everywhere we wanted to go even for night out!:D
She's really cute and powerful lady.
Even though she's older than us, we felt like she was same age with us.
I have nothing to complain about this place!
I had a wonderful stay at Rose's place. She was so nice and caring. the house is simpel cozy and big. Bit noisy street but a real domistic philipinian experience. Thnx Rose!
This location is exactly what it says on the box; In fact I would say this is more the 'heart' of Davao than other locations which are in condo or apartment complex. Rose's place is a standalone residence and I would say if you want the real Filipino experience, stay here. It's a lovely, simple place and Rose was the perfect host. Always reachable and always helpful, she met me upon arrival, despite the fact that my plane was delayed 30 mins or more. The location is extremely handy for all of Davao, especially if you are driving and there are 24 hr convenience stores, 24 hr McDonalds and laundry, pharmacy, bakery etc. etc. within walking distance. The nearest mall, KCCC would be about 10 to 15 minutes walk. A little further than that (across the street) is a little Dutch pub with great food and beer, and there are several more restaurants just beyond that. I did find the place a little hot and a little noisy, but that applies to any city location in Davao. Take some earplugs and open the windows after it rains (which is often in Davao) to enjoy the cool air.
You are in possibly the safest city in Davao and in any case Rose and her family live very close by so you feel protected. When I locked the keys inside, I texted Rose and her cousin appeared with keys and let me in within 5 minutes. Rose also helped whenever I had a question about the city and arranged for laundry, had the place cleaned (both for small fees) and even checked the aircon when I requested that.
Ma-a Road dissects Davao and offers fast access to the Diversion Road (By-pass leading to Lanang, Samal and the airport) going North and SM City mall, KCCC and the Matina area. There is also a great shortcut to downtown to avoid rush-hour traffic, which takes you past the American-Filipino Veterans and Masonic Memorial Park, from about half-way down Ma-a. Plenty of taxis and jeeps run by Rose's place most hours of the day. The slightly annoying honking of a bicycle horn going by in the evening is just a poor guy trying to make a living selling Balut. If you really want the true Filipino experience, stop him and try some!
I had a great time. Rose is an excellent hostess and only too willing to assist in whatever way she can
Rose is a great host. I was not happy with the location of the Condo and she was understanding and allowed me to shorten my commitment. A pleasure to work with.
Hostess made us feel welcome with a warm greeting. Unit was located just as described, and everything was excellent.
