What Past Guests Are Saying
Excellent Views & Great Value for Money
I stayed here for a few nights in august, the first thing that struck me when I first arrived were the astonishing views over the city! The apartment is very spacious and well-equipped with mod cons such as: TV, DVD Player, Cable TV, Wifi & Air Con. The facilities were clean and well kept. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!

Hi Dean, I would like to say thank you for this lovely comment :)
Great White Hunter
Good value 2.5 bedroom condo in Cubao
I stayed in the condo for a week in late July 2013.
The pictures are of the actual condo, though the make it look a little more modern than it is.
There is air conditioning in the kitchen and master bedroom, plus fans.
For the price you get a lot for your money - 2 bathrooms, a washing machine, TV, wireless internet and a very very roomy condo.
Expect to pay at least triple for a similar sized hotel room.
The condo is on the top floor of a building built on the side of Edsa. As such, you get some traffic noise between 6am and midnight - mainly honking jeepneys. You can also hear the MRT between these hours. This didn't particularly bother me, but might not be ideal for some people.
The master bedroom has a huge king sized bed and we found it the most comfy room because the aircon in there also worked great.
The condo is a 5 minute walk to a number of very big malls and a 3 minute walk to a SM Hypermarket which we found very handy.
Rose, the landlord, is very friendly, efficient and helpful.
We used the pool only once (Sunday) and were charged 50 pesos per person to use it.
The condo is not pure luxury, but it is well setup and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to a friend.
I gave Rose a couple of ideas to make the next persons stay even better.
Me and my husband are very satisfied with the place.We have my family the whole time,the stores and malls are very convenient for us coz they were so close,no need to take cabs.We love the music,cds,li'l workout area,entertainment showcase,and the kitchen stuff were very handy for us.The only thing that we missed was having a tv in the master's bedroom(spoiled lol),other than that it was very comfortable.Rose(owner) is a very nice person,very helpful on everything.We'll come again:)
Not impressed at all!
I was so disappointed with our stay in this rental property for the following reasons:
a) masters bedroom- the bathroom/shower area was mouldy (see photos attached) very unhealthy: the sink is nearly falling;
b) vault was not working
c) toilet in the third bedroom : flush is not working/no toilet seat cover
d) water dispenser was dirty (we found floating moulds): we have to clean it to be able to use it...
e) we were charged parking fee for the whole stay cost us P2,000.00+++
f) noisy environment all day (trains (MRT) honking jeepneys etc..)
overall,C not a great place to stay for holiday.

Thanks for the review and we appreciate your concerns of such matters. We will do our best to rectify the whole issue.
Large Unit for thePrice ...
The place was near a big mall and MRT/LRT stationsand was complete with internet,cable,landline,40'LCD with surround sound and towels... the only negative thing was the construction in one of the unit in the bldg. during the later half part of my stay where there was constant banging between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and traffic noise from Edsa down below was also irritating at times but otherwise everything was fine...
Unexpectantly cut short
I had a trip planned for Manila, Rose did a great job letting me know my options. While the trip the fell through she promptly refunded my deposit (I cancelled 2 weeks before my scheduled arrival). All around a very nice person to work with, and very honest.
I hope to book again with her in the future.
