About this listing
Have a very comfortable place to stay while in Makati. My place is just a few steps to Ayala Avenue, the main business location in the Philippines, and is easily accessible to public transportation. This is in a new building with a very nice swimming pool and gym. Large windows with relaxing view of the mountains in Antipolo.
Apartment has all new furnishings. The air conditioned bedroom has a huge closet and a queen-sized bed with orthopedic mattress. The living room has a very comfy sectional sofa for lots of seating while watching on the 32" LED TV or just reading by the huge window. The sofa is also large enough to sleep in if you have an additional guest. The corner kitchenette is equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, electric stove. The bathroom has a nice-sized shower with water heater.
An intercom is also available to announce guests from the reception.
Enjoy the nice new swimming pool on the amenities floor. There is also a small gym with a couple of treadmills, elliptical and free weights.
A few steps away are fast food restaurants such as KFC, McDonald's, Sinangag Express, Jollibee, Chowking and Mang Inasal.
PLDT DSL WIFI is available. Premium CIgnal HD cable is provided also.
Linens and towels will be provided as well as some complimentary toiletries so you don't need to worry. Regular housekeeping will be performed, at least once a week or as needed. Linens and towels will be replaced once a week for stays longer than one week.
Flat iron can be provided upon request. Just take care not to leave it plugged in to avoid accidentally setting my apartment on fire. :-)

We arrived very early in the morning from the airport. Del didn't mind us checking in early and after alittle wait in the lobby came down to greet us. The apartment was clean and comfortable and had a very useable kitchen area. The pool is open air with great views of the city from the 7th floor and their is also a gym on the same floor. Buying food is a bit of a chore, but their are plenty of taxis available to go to the supermarket and the doorman will call one for you. Del is a friendly host who has lived in the US and is quick to respond to any queries. If you like walking its about 10-15 minute walk to the Cash and Carry market through a mixed industrial neighborhood. I felt safe and people wee helpful if I asked directions.
Del was very accommodating, and even stayed-up to meet me at 3am after my plane was delayed by several hours before arriving in Manila.
The apartment itself was light and open, perfect for a single or even couple. Probably the only drawback was the lack of a balcony, but this is made-up for by the large recreational area including lap pool and gym within the same building.
This apartment is located in a very favourable part of Manila, which manages to be both quiet, and very close to the CBD, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and nightlife.
Apartment has 24 hour security who are attentive yet non-obtrusive. Everything was kept very clean and in perfect working order.
I will certainly seek out this host and her apartment on my next trip to Manila.
Del was friendly, kind, polite, extremely well responsive to questions and requests we had and, above all, an excellent host of a very nice and comfortable accommodation. Del allowed us to check out later on the day of our departure which saved us headaches of looking for place to store luggage whilst having a short visit to Intramuros. The facilities and location are superb (albeit it was a taxi only option around Manila for us for several reasons). Wholeheartedly recommended!
The condo is a nice place for anyone staying in or around Makati. Thank you Del.
Del is the best. So helpful and accommodating. I had a big flight problem, and she helped me get everything straight letting me use her phone in her own room. She even ordered did for me. Shes great and the apartment is fantastic. But right on a party street if thats what your looking for, but cabs are super cheap and its not far too stuff. Go to Ayala Museum...really great! Jupiter road has lots of food options. Aloha!
I stayed for 5nights. There are many 24hrs convenient store so it was easy to get everything I need. It was easy to get taxi. Maridel was friendly host I wish i had more time to talk with her. I will stay here again when I go to manila again.
The room is really clean and nice. The neighborhood is safe and not very far from the airport. Recommend to anyone who is visiting Manila!!
