Visitors are welcome to the unit and should register in the reception lobby area. However, only registered airbnb guest are allowed to stay overnight otherwise such action is considered breach of contract and will be charged accordingly.
We cannot stress enough the high cost of electrical charges here in the Philippines. To be honest, we were just about to pull-off the "electricity inclusion option" and have it charged instead according to what has been consumed. But we feel this is such a hassle, which we really don't want our guest to be subjected to... We bought 3 powerful electric fans as an option for use....
Thus we kindly ask to please please be considerate in the use of electricity, Making sure all electrical appliance to be turned off when not in use, specially the air conditioners... The air conditioners are new and are fast cooling.

Page 1 is like a registration form with details of the lease
Page 2 is the Agreement and rules
Page 3&4 is the Utilities and Amenities Checklist

There is also a take-out list folder which i compiled during my stay as well as other guest who have stayed in the unit, i find it most useful.. including laundry service, massage service etc...

we could not be made to feel more welcome in Dexter and Vergiels place. What you see is what you get. the place was comfortable, convenient and in prime location. we were highly impressed by the amenities included in the accommodation. if you you want to stay in the Philippines this is the place to stay. simple fantastic thank you Dexter and Vergiel
I feel very fortunate to have chosen to stay at Dexter's unit at Icon Residences Tower 1. It's a good-sized 2 bedroom unit with practical amenities. The best part of the entire experience is that Dexter is a very accommodating and friendly host . I will strongly recommend the unit to friends who want to stay @ BGC City area.
My friends and I had a pleasant stay at this location. Dexter & Vergiel's place was just like the photos and very well maintained. Amenities were included such as toothpaste, mouthwash, toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner, soap. They even left us some beverages (sodas, and beer too)! Cleaning services came twice during our 5 day stay which was perfect (you can request different schedule). The surrounding areas are very safe and EVERYTHING is within walking distance or a 10min taxi ride.
The building is very secure with 24 guards at entry taking note of every cars license plate upon entry. Gym is solid and up to date with latest machines. A/C in this unit was amazing because there was one in every room. The wifi is also very clutch and decent in speed. Overall our stay was great and would definitely come back to book next time im in Manila/The Fort.
Outstanding place! The location is great and the host is very welcoming and 100% professional. The place has everything you need and the staff are ready to help at all times. I would highly recommend for anyone that will stay in the area. Will definitely return.
Everything about this place is what we would like to experience in AirBnB - great location, great amenities, great internet, great cable tv, and fantastic service. As we are always in Taguig, we will definitely favourite this and hope to be able to use it again. Thanks!
Every time I visit Manila I stay here. The location is great, the flat is like in the photos, the maid is very sweet and cleans the flat/changes the sheets every other day. Really great.
About the Host, Dexter & Vergiel
My wife and I have been living in Africa as Humanitarian Aid Workers for a long time. We love to travel and visit places. I love reading and collecting movies while my wife likes entertaining guests.
Having stayed out of the Philippines for a long time, we are yet to explore the many places in our own country. We enjoyed our visit to Singapore,Malaysia, Mongolia, Hong Kong, China, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Egypt, Lebanon, Cyprus, Sudan, Nairobi, Uganda, England, US, Norway, Sweden, Germany; In the Philippines we only visited some parts of Davao, Cebu, Baguio and Palawan.
As we are often out of the country due to work, we are happy to use the services of Airbnb so as we can share our home to travelers who opt for an alternative accommodation which is safe, secure and most importantly affordable.
We are not in a Hotel or Bed&Breakfast business and the place you will be staying is really our home, its the place we stay when we come to the Philippines. So we kindly ask to respect our place as if its your own.
We do try our best to make the place as comfortable as possible for you, making sure all the basic amenities are ready and available for you to use aside from advance request of stuff our guest needs to be ready in the fridge upon arrival... example beers, soft drinks or even a SIM card and airtime (of course, the extra request charged as per receipt, actual price.. no additional fee). A day before a guest checks-in, we make sure that the place undergoes general cleaning and as soon as the guest checks-in we have a unit caretaker who does daily basic cleaning of the unit to help maintain the cleanliness of your temporary residence.
We also welcome any recommendations and suggestions in making the place more comfortable for you or future guest, However, sometimes due to financial constraints we might not be able to do all at once. We cant promise you that all is prefect in our unit but we can assure you that we do try our best to make your stay as hassle free and comfortable as possible.
We thank you in advance for considering our unit as one of your temporary residence while in the Philippines and we wish you a pleasant visit and stay.
