A Delicatessen is beside the supermarket as well as elegant salons for your spa treatment needs. The airport, Banks, Shopping malls, hospital and international schools are about 20 to 30 mins on a normal traffic flow. I have a list of Restaurants and Food Deliveries and their contact numbers in case you don't feel like going out or cooking your meals. There is a small restaurant at the Sky Lounge located at Kamala Bldg too for Filipino food being served.
The apartment is surrounded by very nice and cheerful people and easy to communicate with as I made them all my friends too.
It was my home for the past 3 years , so everything that you might need from cooking and doing laundry is available. Laundry can also be serviced for a fee or you can call a laundry company which is located at the Lower Ground of the Building beside the apartment. Toiletries are provided . Sufficient Linens and towels are available and cleaning is every 7 days or as requested .The unit is sanitized before a new renter arrives.
I do not recommend my apartment to guests with children below 7 years old for safety reasons.

For Rentals 1 month (28 days) or More, The lower ,adjusted monthly rate is inclusive of utilities : water, unlimited internet, landline phone , Cable TV, swimming pool and use of my parking space EXCEPT for ELECTRICITY . I have a standard rate which I think is reasonable and fair enough not to be charged together with transaction fees as it is an actual minimum usage of power based from previous renters bills. This shall be collected at anytime after checking in to serve as your security deposit. . The use of Gym, Sauna and Game Room has a minimal fee which will be collected by the Staff on Duty. Use of Swimming Pool is free for registered Guests Only.

My place is ordinary and simple , peaceful and quite but has all the things you might need to enjoy your daily activities. But your stay and the friendships that we will build through this site will make it Extra-Ordinary!

Other Things to Note
NO loud parties please inside the apartment, the clubhouse has function rooms you can rent out if you want to celebrate.
If you smoke, please do it in the balcony ONLY and make sure the glass doors are closed. Please also be considerate that we have neighbors with small children. However, I don' t impose a lot of rules, as I believe that all of us are human enough to be sensitive, respectful and caring of each other's property. So just be safe and treat my place as your own home. I am leaving my personal number and you may call me in case you may need something or any assistance during your stay or report some untoward incident/s happening in the premises.
A Guest Manual hopefully can give you an orientation inside the apartment and it will be sent to you after a confirmed booking.
For long term/short term occupancy , I require a photocopy of ID or passport from my guests for your own convenience and easy access to the gates security. And a written agreement shall be signed to protect both parties (long term)
Bianca made things easy for me right from the very start. From giving me good and accurate directions from the airport to the probability on how to handle difficult taxi drivers if i encountered one. She completely made me feel at home. The accommodation was exactly as what was described in the website. It was cosy, clean and warm and contained all necessary amenities. I will not hesitate to stay at Bianca's or recommend her to my friends and family for future stays.
Bianca is one of the best hosts I've met; very friendly and kind. When asking questions, she replies more than I expect. She knows the guest needs very well. Besides, she really enjoys to host people over the world. I enjoyed communicating with her during my stay.
The place was also perfect both for vacation and business use; easy access to the major areas such as Makati and Global city(100-250 PHP). Also 20-30mins to Terminal 3 depending on the traffic. While very convenient, it is very relaxing like the asian resort which you just want to stay inside the property whole day. There is a cafe in the clubhouse and one convenience store inside the property so that you can get the least grocery for the day without going outside the property.
Of all the places I've rented over the internet, Bianca's apartment is definitely the best. The apartment is big enough for two to live comfortably. The kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and office are all well stocked, clean, and easy to keep clean. The internet is reliable. The air-cons and fans allow all manner of cooling. The balcony is very handy. The location is resort like. The pool is great, the gym is okay, the on premise convenience store has a nice inventory, and the on premise laundry service is very handy. We walk to Savemore, and a taxi ride to Market! Market! is just 80 pesos without tip.
Found the place to be in Excellent condition, safe and not a problem to be travelling to and from any destinations!! Bianca has been wonderful, providing some refreshment, food, coffee and milk. She always checks in to make sure that I was OK and nothing is a problem for her!! Thanks Bianca for a wonderful stay in your Condo!! I highly recommend to anyone who would like to stay in a nice, safe environment!!
Staying at Biancas place was amazing and pleasent,her condo was just perfect for me and my fiancé and the security were very polite and helpful...Bianca was very nice and easy to contact anytime with any questions and was very helpful..staying here is highly recommended.
Biancas place is a wonderland! its a beautiful resort style condo with the pool, park, cafe, and gym right in front of her building. I couldnt stop taking pictures because it was such a nice scenery to wake up to every morning!
Its close to all the main areas including market market which is such a great place to shop eat and hang out. Taxis are super easy to get at the front gate and all of them were honest reliable metered taxis.
Getting to the condo was fairly easy, most taxi drivers in the area know Acacia Estates, but since its a big area of several condo complexes, be sure to confirm with Bianca the building name! I had some confusion because i didnt know it when i arrived, but the guards are so kind and helpful that they escorted me to her place anyways.
Biancas condo had all the bath amenities that you need so there was no need for me to pack heavy bottles of shampoos! She also provides a fully furnished kitchen and some simple foods and snacks and drinks that i think is the overall biggest plus to staying there compared to other places. she even stopped by to re stock some drinks and bread!
She has a land line which made it easy for me to makes some calls, although the land line doesnt call out to cell phone numbers, its still handy to get a prepaid phone, but at least people can call you on the land line. She has wifi internet which is a great plus, BUT it sometimes didnt work, i was always out so it wasnt a huge problem, but if internet is important to you, then im sure you could remedy this by resetting the modem or something.
Overall i was happy that i chose this place because Bianca was very helpful and not super strict so as long as you have respect for her condo as if it were your own then you will have a very comfortable time.
Thanks Bianca!!! if i ever come back, i will definitely choose to stay there again. Its simply just the best place for the price hands down!
We had a nice stay at Bianca's. Communicating with her was easy. We had her whole apartment to ourselves plus a parking slot for our car. We had a good conversation with her and she was very thoughtful to stock her kitchen with breakfast goodies and information on nearby restaurants and services. Wifi at her place was good and her balcony (and rocking chair) made for a relaxing spot. As we had a busy work schedule we wish we had enough time to try the pool at their clubhouse; it looked inviting. Would stay with her again. Thank you!

Hi my name is Bianca and I work in the Financial Sector. I do varied activities like camping, cycling, scuba diving, spear fishing, mountain climbing or hiking and sharing my time as a volunteer for Worldwide Fund For Nature, Philippines (WWF) and Greenpeace . And I love to travel too. It is only in June 2012 that I opened my apartment for guests when I am out of Manila , but I hosted a lot of foreign and local tourists and earned a lot of friends all over the world which is the greatest reward.
On being a guest, don't worry, I am not a demanding (website hidden) or Internet are not necessary, but knowing you and hearing your travel stories are more interesting for me.
Thank you and welcome to Manila!
