Hi I'm Abiel presently residing in Singapore. Thanks for viewing my listing. Looking forward to host you at my condo in Manila
My stay was great. The condo loft was quiet, accessible to stores and biz, new and well equipped. It is compact but functional, definitely european style. I did not cook much so I did not use the kitchen at all but they have a stove and even a rice cooker. A balcony to enjoy the evening breeze overlooking the Makati at night.
Concierge service around the clock, and parking. The internet worked satisfactorily, though I also had my own data plan.
I even met Abiel the day I left. I definitely would use this flat again!
This was the first time I rented a place through AirBnB. Abiel was always prompt in replying to my queries. And I love, love, love his place! His condo unit is located in the Greenbelt area. Most cab drivers know where it is. It is within a short walking distance to great shopping, restaurants, movies, church, banks/ATM. There is even a fun outdoor market on weekends, just a short walk away.
Check in and check out was seamless. Security in the building is always present and reliable.
The bed is firm and reliable. The space is truly ideal for one or two travelers. I would definitely stay there again, on my next visit to Makati/Manila.
Abiel was always very responsive when it came to my inquiries, so it was easy for me to arrange the reservation for this apartment. His mom and brother were ready to meet us at the agreed check-in time, and they were even so kind to show us around the apartment to make sure that we knew how everything worked.
The apartment itself is excellent--I used to live in the Makati/Greenbelt area before I moved to the US so I'm pretty familiar with the neighborhood. It's a 2-minute walk to Greenbelt where there's tons of dining and shopping options, there's a Sunday market right across at the park on Sunday mornings, and it's a quiet neighborhood of mostly expats, families and young couples.
The bed was comfortable, and I loved the fact that the apartment had big windows that give you a spectacular view of the sunrise. The airconditioner, TV, wifi and all other amenities worked great. I even got to do laundry using the washer (so convenient). I would definitely book this apartment again the next time I find myself in Manila!
Abiel and his mother, Alma were very good hosts. Always available to answer questions and the room was cleaned regularly for no extra cost!
I can only speak positive comments about our 3 week stay in this condo:
- The location was so convenient! We walked to Greenbelt and Glorietta malls every day. There is everything from several parks within walking distance, to a grocery store, a church and not to mention eateries.
- The unit itself was new and in pristine working condition. The view was awesome from the balcony and wifi internet was provided. Condo staff were always willing to lend a hand and were very friendly.
- Location was very safe. It's within the "financial district" of Makati, so many of the locals here were either working or expats.
Overall, we had such a wonderful stay that we are hoping to stay in the unit again next time we visit the homeland! We have even recommended it to all our friends and family.
Abiel promptly replies to my queries.
The unit is centrally located in the heart of Legaspi Village, one block away from Greenbelt mall and the Legaspi Village markets.
Abiel's family met me in the evening for check-in and made the turnover of the unit painless. The unit is homey, clean and comfortable!
The bed was a big plus not some lumpy bed but a proper chiropractic bed!!! The unit offered a mobile wi fi which was handy, hot water, clean towels, steam press basically the unit has all the amenities of being away from home. I had a fantastic stay a great value in a nice, secure building with 24 hours security.
Would definitely come back!!
Overall this stay was great! The host accommodated us by having someone pick us up from the airport and we felt safe right away. The place was a bit smaller than I thought from the pictures but it was great for 3 people. Waking up to the view of the city was amazing, especially for island people like us. Everything was provided: towels, toilet tissue, utensils, even rice. The conditions were great for our week stay. We had hot water, cold AC, a fridge, stove, and a washing machine; pretty much everything you would need in a home.
Location was also perfect. We just walked straight for about 3 minutes and we were already at green belt 1. Because the malls were connected there was always somewhere new to discover. Greenbelt 1-5, glorietta, landmark, SM were all just there. As visitors we were able to get around the malls rather easily and if we ever got lost, we would just ask guards where greenbelt 1 was; from there we knew our way home. We just took taxis to the Mall of Asia, Salcedo Community Market (Saturday), Ocean Park and Greenhills & it never took more than a 30-45 minute ride. At most we paid like $10 (least would be $3) but we got there safely.
We will definitely be returning & we recommend this loft to anyone in search of a place to stay. I was seriously scared of getting kidnapped or scammed but this site was safe & this host and his family were amazing. Thank you so much Abiel & family.
Abiel's apartment is Makati has an excellent location and is a great place to stay when you spend few days in Manila. We did not meet Abiel himself because he was out of town, but communication with him was easy.
Abiel's loft is very clean with all the necessary stuff provided. It's right in the middle of Makati with super easy access to Greenbelt mall where you can find all the nice restaurants, café, bars. Due to our flights, we had a very early check-in, so would like to thank Abiel's mother and brother for their great help as well. Definitely recommend to anyone who travels to Makati!
Great Host!, apartment was super clean, close to everything would stay again
Great location, really clean, you get everything you need and more. Thanks!
Abiel is a great guest. Very observant of the house rules. Checkout in the unit as if no one stayed. Would want him to be our guest again. Recommendable.
