Its always a perfect place to stay, safe and convenience for all.
Nice place, we enjoyed our stay in the place. It's like a home away from home.
The apartment has a nice view over Manila but it's a bit cold in terms of feeling at home.
Unfortunately we didn't meet Margaret but there weren't any kind of information for a foreigner like me being the first time in Manila.
It's a business nothing more.
There were only 2 blankets for 4 persons and not very clean.
Même si je n'ai pas eu la chance de vous rencontrer je vous remercie pour votre accueil et pour tous vos messages qui ont permis de me rassurer.
L'appartement était très propre avec une vue imprenable au 39e étage. Cependant, nous étions 3 personnes, il manquait peut être une couverture légère pour la 3e personne. Excepté cela, rien à signaler c'était parfait.
Je vous remercie une nouvelle fois, je n'hésiterai pas à vous recommander ou à retourner dans votre appartement.
My balikbayan friends and I had a wonderful stay in Marge's place. The unit is so clean, adequately furnished and styled for comfort. You can see the Makati river, Tivoli's well manicured garden and swimming pools and even the silhouette of Manila bay from the balcony. We will definitely stay again in Marge's place. It's value for money!
Margeret was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay and also provided some tips on the things to experience near the condo.
The condo matched her description and was very nice.
At busy times in the day there can be some waiting time for the 2 lifts servicing the 39th floor but it was not really a problem.
Margaret's place was beautiful. You can see the care that she and her husband had put in making the place homey - with lots of small paintings to decorate the place. It's also very clean. When we arrived to drop off our bags Margaret was actually cleaning the place w/ a cleaner. There is free wifi, a small restaurant & convenience store in an adjoining building, if ever you needed one. We came during typhoon season and Margaret was also accommodating in pick up and drop-of of keys.
Notre hôte a été très soucieuse de notre arrivée, de notre confort et très prévoyante des problèmes que nous pourrions rencontrer. Tout au long du séjour Margaret a été très attentive à ce que tout se passe bien jusqu'au dernier moment de notre départ.
Thank you Jean Pierre for this very positive review! We would love to have you back anytime! We truly appreciate seeing the unit so clean after you left.
This was my first time trying out Airbnb and I would say this was the best way to start out. Margaret was very easy talk to; very nice and very helpful! Whenever I messaged I would get a reply within the hour. It was a pleasure communicating with her.
As for the unit, it was very cozy and relaxing. The Tivoli Garden Residences area really gave off a relaxing feel and it was nice to just stroll along the poolside. The unit has everything you will need for a comfortable stay. Soap and shampoo are provided, and I believe towels are normally provided as well. I didn't have towels during my stay but Margaret told me early on that she was not able to stock up the towel but she was willing to provide if I needed, but I was willing to bring my own so I did not ask for towels. The kitchen had just about everything you would need, microwave, utensils, plates, cups and mugs, electric stove, refrigerator, etc. Get some food from the nearby convenience store and you'll be able to prepare some simple dishes in the unit so you don't have to eat out. Just don't prepare something with strong smells as there's no exhaust Hahaha. Knowing the Manila heat, I was a bit disappointed to see only one aircon which was in the bedroom so I thought that the livingroom might become a bit hot, but Margaret clearly listened to her previous reviews and provided 2 electric fans in advance which was just what was needed. Thanks to the electric fans, I had no problems with heat and had a comfortable stay. The internet was surprisingly fast.
Overall, I definitely would recommend staying here! I will definitely consider coming back here next time I'm looking for a place.
Communication: with Marge was fun n easy going, within few hrs. she was replying all my queries. Punctual in delivering the keys. There was a problem with the El. Kettle, but after few sms Marge’s husband came up to deliver a new one along with a few fresh towels, which is absolutely a highlight in Phil. As most Hosts I’v experienced there in my 13times MNL do not do that and that also for free of cost. Thnx Marge for that.
--Handling: Triple A--
Pros from the unit: The view from 39th floor of the the pools down, the Pasig river which is not really clean and long long away the bay line, otherwise quite much concrete jungle all around. Enjoyed my early morning coffee with a cigarette on the Balcony, felt so heavenly- WOW. 2 rooms for the price ( I paid 35 EUR per night) is value for money. Big Plus – in built digital safetybox to keep your Passports and Valuables. Unit is medium good equipped, if you want to prepare meals for 2-3 persons, it’s makeable. Marge has bought quality kitchen utensils- not the cheapest one what you get in other places. There is a streetmarket 5 mins walk away, can buy quite cheap and small packs from sari-sari stores and fresh fish, meat and veg also. Proximity to Century mall and SM Marketplace is just 10 mins walk away, but unfortunately the guards in the building could not even tell me where that is. It’s just over the bridge across the river. Ask better the small shop owners just outside the Tivoli Gardens they will guide you. There is a small shop also inside- “Carousell”- with pretty unfriendly Personal.
Internet/ WiFi is pretty fast and good to work with.BtW there is a laundry inside the complex, they also do in 1 day rush service for double the price as normal, but they make it. Some small bistro shops in the complex and an eatery, sort of small bar in the amenities in one of the buildings beside the pool.
Cons from the unit: 1 Aircons just in the bedroom is not actually sufficient for 41 sqm. So in the living room u have to feel the heat of Manila. And the Aircon has no Remote-Temperature control, so in the night u have to get up every time if it’s too cold or hot. The Big Windows have nice Curtains to look at, but they absolutely do not darken the room, so at 5:30 in the morning I woke up due to too much light in the bedroom. So there’s room for improvement. Reception from Mobile network, whichever u choose Sun/Globe etc was bad in the Unit only from Balcony I could use mobile. But that’s also something for which the Unit owner can’t help.
Thanks for the review, Nefertett! For future reference we have changed the curtains already to black out curtains which pretty much block off any morning light.
We hope to have you again when you come back to Manila!
Margaret was nice, easy going with no doubt. And the whole trip she did self-sufficient and well-planned for everything with her husband & friends. Check-out of my apartment was left tidy and clean as it's found. And I'd like to recommend Margaret to all host!! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! from Matt (Causeway Bay, Hong Kong) https://www.airbnb.com.hk/rooms/860952 , https://www.airbnb.com.hk/rooms/3747986
Margaret was a very good guest, good with communication and very punctual
