Amazing view !
Not really luxurious but not bad either !
Super highly recommended!!!!
Super duper nice, accommodating, responsive host!
Wouldn't hesitate to stay again and again.
We had a wonderful stay throughout the whole 3 weeks! We love the view by our living room and bedroom. The place is just enough for two people. Actually it's bigger than we thought. We just have a few comments. The bathroom needs to be maintained or atleast upgrade into more modernized. But overall we had a pleasant stay! And oh it's only 15min walk to nearest mall!
Staying at Jovy's unit was such a pleasure. The place had a nice view, was very spacious considering some places in the Philippines are quite small, and great location with high street just walking distance or a short taxi ride away. Jovy and his contact were always available and responded quickly if I needed something. The staff and security were all very nice and accommodating especially when I needed a cab. Basic necessities were provided, except for a microwave but it was okay since I was out most of the time. One thing I appreciated was that the unit was exceptionally clean. Without a doubt, I would definitely stay at here again!
Nice apartment in a great location - I would stay here again. The hosts were very responsive. I appreciated their attention and had no major problems. One note is that the wifi is in the common area (on the penthouse level) and not in the apartment itself.
The place looked a bit different from how it was featured in the website in the sense of interior decor. The lighting fixture was not working in the master's bedroom the first 2 days. The pool in the premise was not functional because the pool tiles were being changed or fixed so we weren't able to use it. But all in all, it was very strategically located and served its purpose.
My understanding is that the host Jovy resides in the US and therefore there is a lady, Ernel, who is responsible for check-in, check-out, and cleaning. Both of them were quick to reply to messages and were generally helpful. I stayed in the apartment for a month.
The apartment is nicely situated in Bonifacio Global City, and is fairly close to a few malls (SM Aura and Market! Market!) I was in Manila for work so am unsure whether the apartment counts as a good base for tourists.
The place was overall fairly nice, quite a decent one-bedroom apartment. The kitchen is well-stocked with cutlery but doesn't have many cooking utensils, just a saucepan. Not a problem if you intend to eat out most of the time. Like other reviewers said, the AC was fairly loud and I eventually just started sleeping with the fan on, but it was still fairly breezy. Washing machine and TV works great. Cell phone signal is pretty bad in the apartment but works fine in the lobby. Only the building's Wi-Fi is available from the penthouse, but the signal was pretty weak and I had trouble logging on so I gave up after a few days and just survived on 3G from my phone while I was out of the apartment.
My biggest gripe with the apartment was that it was pretty infested with tiny cockroaches, which crawled all around the kitchen and bathroom area. I did use insecticide and an anti-cockroach chalk I bought but it just wasn't effective against all the cockroaches. To Jovy's credit he volunteered to get Ernel to come over and help, but I honestly don't see how she could have gotten rid of all of them overnight, since I was already waging an all-out war against them with insecticide. Seems to be a long-term maintenance problem, and might be exacerbated by the fact that the apartment is probably left vacant for long periods of time. Previous reviewers didn't mention anything about cockroaches, though, so it might be a fairly new problem. It might also be the fault of the building's administration, and might have happened because they aren't doing pest control regularly. The situation got much better when I bought capsules of cockroach poison and put them in the kitchen and bathroom. By the end of my stay there were significantly less cockroaches, though there were definitely still a few pesky ones who refused to take the bait. But honestly, I got pretty used to it after a few days.
The pool and gym are on the penthouse. The pool is currently under construction because of damage from the recent typhoon, and the gym, though functional, is fairly dated, has few machines, and pretty poor ventilation.
But besides that, I would say that it's a decent apartment for the price, considerably cheaper than most other apartments in the BGC area. Would recommend with some reservations.
Jovy and Ernel answer questions very fast. Unit is large with a big comfortable bed, it was important for my business trip.
The condo was very suitable for me, not far from my work.
There is no Internet directly in the unit, but you can find WiFi on the penthouse floor, or use 3g.
Also the A/C is too noisy, but as I can see it the problem of all A/Cs in Manila.
Overall ауудштп is very good, I can recommend this condo for stay.
This is the second time I stayed at Jovy's pad! Really responsive host and I love the laxed feeling of his apartment. Had another amazing time just as good as the last! Highly recommend this apartment and dealing with Jovy! Thanks again Jovy had another smooth stay!!
Jovy was an absolute legend - quick with responses and organised everything that I requested. The apartment is in a fantastic area close to all amenities in the fort. Everything in the apartment was spot on - very easy and comfortable living space. Will be staying here again. (Only thing is it didn't have Internet - but there is Internet on the penthouse floor)
Jovy is fantastic and went out of his way to ensure I had an excellent stay. I spent over 3 months at his condo between different occasions and really enjoyed my stay. Great view of the gold course and manila skyline and excellent layout for the 1 bedroom apartment. Will definitely be staying there again.
