Maryann’s apartment is exactly as in the photograph; clean, modern and very comfortable. What is more the Wi-Fi works perfectly.
In a secure condo with attentive staff near to Manila terminal 3 (although during my stay I never heard any aircraft noise), in my view it is the perfect place to recuperate from a long-haul flight and get used to the climate before continuing your journey. It does not suffer from the pollution found in central Manila.
Five minutes’ walk takes you to a small centre where you can eat Philippine, European and sushi and a bakery with superb French croissants. There is also a small store where you can buy drinks and snacks to eat in the apartment.
Maryann gives you a wonderful welcome and is there to give advice in the event of problems (I had to find a medical centre).
I thoroughly recommend this host!
Maryann was very prompt in replying to me and very punctual when meeting me. The place is basic, but clean and as described in the listing. A good value for a short stay.
I had a very pleasant stay at Maryann's condo unit. It was only for a short time, and I certainly enjoyed it. There was a bit of confusion or misunderstanding about my check-in time; however Maryann managed to be there to meet me just after I arrived without any issues. The unit is clean and very maintained. It is in a good location, only minutes away from Ninoy Airport Terminal 3, and walking distance from Resorts World, restaurants, and supermarket. The staff and guards were very friendly and the area seems safe and secured. Perhaps the only drawback was the air conditioning system which was too loud for my liking. Other than that, the unit is great! I would definitely recommend this unit to other guests for a short term stay.
Nice place, good value for money, host was kind and helpful. However the a/c was loud and very cold. Without a/c it was warm. The a/c is also noisy when there is rain and the water drips on it, it sounds like a hailstorm. However I am sure Maryann will quickly fix these issues and otherwise it has been a pleasant stay.
The place: The pictures are exactly how the place looks, it really is immaculate. Everything is in order, Maryann even has a sheet with all the different cable channels labeled, so you don't have to surf through many channels to find the National Geographic channel, for example.
The location: It's fantastic, you're basically in a first world resort, which means STRONG wifi. I never had an issue streaming movies. Makati and Mall of Asia are like 4 or 5 bucks by taxi (locals pay like 3 bucks, but if you're a foreigner, expect to pay more). It's ok though, don't be a penny-pincher, just settle on the amount before you step in the taxi to avoid risking getting seriously gouged. If you want to get your hair cut, it's like three blocks away, across from the supermarket (for a dollar, I'm not kidding, it was a dollar, and he didn't just cut my hair, he went all out, everything was neatly trimmed, I even got an upper back and scalp massage). If you need to get more load for your local phone, the 7 Eleven across from casino/mall has smart cards (smart is one of the local phone service providers). Most of the food in the mall is overpriced and not very healthy (a bunch of carbs), but if you're into typical American restaurant food, you'll like it, the quality is fine, for that kind of food. However, if you're paleo like me and need a pound of meat every day, head over to Kenny Rodgers Roasters, which is like a block from the mall, and you can order a whole chicken and some vegetables for like 10 dollars. It's delicious, reasonably priced, and you can get all your proteins in for the day.
The building: There's a lot of security, which can be intimidating at first, but actually, all the security guards are really nice. They're just regular folks, and they smile a lot. There's a pool and tennis courts, and with the weather in Manila, the pool is fantastic. If you need your laundry done, they do it for like 3 bucks (it's by weight), and you get it back folded really nice and neat (no wrinkles), it's pretty amazing.
Bottom Line: I would completely recommend staying here, especially if you are with women/children, due to the safety factor, the place is COMPLETELY safe.
