Modern and Highly Reviewed Vacation Condo in Makat
Description from the owner
Your home away from home.
The property is located at 7829 Makati Ave and was recently renovated in January 2015 to include; all new linens, curtains, flooring, paint, artwork, safe, kitchen appliances, shower system, printer/copier/scanner, etc. The 1 bedroom unit features granite counters in the kitchen and bathroom, microwave/convection oven, washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen with plates, bowls, silverware, rice cooker, toaster, etc., everything just like home. You will always have internet access as the unit has a WIFI router and 2 internet connections (Cable and DSL) with unlimited access. A landline phone is available for local calls only. A cell phone is also available for guest use (minutes can be purchased cheap at 7-Eleven). The best cable system is available with HD channels (Skycable Platinum package) along with a new 2014 40" LCD TV and DVD Home Theater Surround Sound with subwoofer for that true live sound which makes watching movies that much more fun. The unit has a queen size hotel quality bed good for 2 persons with a fold out queen sofa bed in the living room for an additional 2 persons.
Enjoy the beautiful view of Makati from the small balcony or take in the Infinity pool on the 4th floor, or the restaurant...the spa...the gym..., the 3 level mall built on the adjacent lot connecting to the building and now the brand new SM Hypemart (grocery) just recently opened next door. The location is great with 100's of restaurants, bars etc., within walking distance and less than 5 minutes taxi ride to the popular Glorietta and Greenbelt Malls. Taxi service easily available right outside the lobby, just ask the guards to grab you one!
The entire building is extremely secure as door men and guards are on duty 24 hours a day and roam the floors. Each floor also contains CCTV throughout the hallways. You won't have a problem with beggars, solicitors, etc. in front of the building as commonplace throughout Manila. If you're worried about safeguarding your important travel documents, a new digital safe has been added to the unit.
Parking is not included with the unit and pay parking fees can be located on the listing specifics. Housekeeping is provided with the rent of this unit, but the owner/caretaker shall also provide the tenant all amenities in which to maintain additional cleanliness of the unit. Housekeeping times will be arranged with the caretaker upon arrival as many guests prefer different times. Housekeeping only includes cleaning of the unit, vacuuming, dusting, dishes, and once a week linen and towel exchange. Guest personal laundry is not included, but a washer/dryer is available in the unit for personal use.
This is not a money making opportunity for me in the least, this is my home and I only rent it to keep it occupied and in use while I am out of town. Therefore the number of guests staying in the unit is limited to 4 maximum to keep the normal wear and tear to a minimum. Guests in excess of 4 for longer than a short house visit will be noticed by security and asked to vacate the premises.
The hotel portion of the building bills out for 6500 pesos per night, and the hotel rooms aren't nearly as outfitted as mine. Book with me, and spend that money on other things during your trip. Prices are 100% inclusive of all costs associated with renting the unit, in other words...this is all you would pay. I do not entertain requests for visits prior to bookings or the exact unit # for security reasons.
A 100 USD Security Deposit will be included in the invoice at time of booking This deposit will be automatically returned to your form of payment through FlipKey within 72 hours after checkout.

I recently stayed in this condo (31 March-06 april). The condo was exactly as described by the owner. The location is ideal for visitors requiring accommodation in Makati. There are plenty of restaurants and a supermarket within a minutes walk from the condo. I walked into central Makati (Glorietta Mall) on a few occasions in under 30 minutes, however there are also numerous taxis operating past the a Venue Suites. I highly recommend this condo for singles or couples as it satisfies all requirements for city living. The owner and the caretaker are friendly and easy to deal with. I had an enjoyable stay with no negative comments to offer regarding my stay in Michaels condo. I would have no hesitation in booking this condo again for future visits to Manila.

I recently stayed in Michaels condo and it is exactly as described by the owner. I only have positive comments on the condo. The owner and his caretaker Jacqui are easily contactable if required. The condo is clean with modern appliances, and great views. Located within easy walking distance to many restaurants and entertainment, and taxis are readily available if required. I had an extremely pleasant stay and highly recommend Michaels condo.

I stayed in this Makati condo unit for the entire month of February 2013. I would not hesitate to recommend this particular unit for your stay in Makati if you want to be in the center of what there is to do and see during your stay. The apartment suite was very clean on arrival, and I appreciated seeing Jacqui, who cleaned the suite for me every few days during my stay. There are great views from the living room which also has a balcony and I also appreciated the hot water shower (which is non-existent in a lot of other condo units. The suite is as advertised and is equipped with ample cooking utensils and dishes if this is your thing on vacation. However, only steps away in the a.Venue mall are a number of asian, Italian and restaurants with a local flair. If you are looking for american dishes, 'Hooters' is just across the street and 'The Filling Station' or 'Cafe Cubana' are just a couple of blocks away with a great american breakfast.. One thing worth noting is the very friendly staff at a.Venue suites and also how safe you feel when walking around in this part of the city. The owner of this suite is very friendly and easy to deal with and I might mention that over the month I stayed here, not a single issue cropped up that I had to get resolved. A great suite for your stay in Makati.
"Excellent place to stay and close to everything."

Michael's apartment was perfect for our family. It is located close to restaurants and shopping. The apartment was exactly as expected. Our family liked the homely feeling and not feeling like a hotel room. We were greeted by Jackie who showed us the features of the apartment including the free wi-fi and cable TV. Thank you Jackie.
We highly recommend Michael's apartment and would stay again.

I rented this condo for the easy access and convenience of being around Makati central area. First impression was a little on the compact size but it has all the amenitities needed for a two week break. Good interior decor and clean. Storage for clothes i found was very limited but after explaining to the owner, agreed to install more storage space. My partner and i found it a very good place to rest your head in a prime area at a reduced price rate. I would certainly consider staying here again.

Michael,Our stay in your Condo was just what I needed.
Working in afghanistan I needed to relax and enjoy all that Philippines has to offer, Oct. Fest was a great Plus and just down stairs was all the food drinks and live entertaiment a person could ask for,It cost less than 100 pesos for a taxi to the Resturants or the Malls. Your Condo was very clean and relaxing and being on the 22nd floor with the doors open was the nice cool breeze. Our Host was very helpful, I would recomend your Condo to a Family or the Single person who enjoys the Night Life Excitement as the location is perfect. Thank You for the Extras you provided.

I made my first trip to the Philippines in September and stayed in this unit for a month. My reasons for selecting this apartment were due to the superior location, (walkable to all the 24 hour entertainment, yet in a safe secure area) and because some special amenities the suite offered, such as a washer/dryer, warm shower water, and a great view from the balcony window. The owner was very accessible via email, and the caretaker Jacqui was there on my arrival and provided cleaning services and even loaded my cell phone for me with my prepaid cards! Steps away is a great grocery store and the a Venue mall has a numerous variety of restaurants as well. When you have finished reading this review, your work is now done and you will not regret booking this suite for your visit to Makati.

The condo was exactly as described in the listing. The location was very close to the major malls and allowed me and my cousin to do alot of shopping and relax in a comfortable environment at the end of the day. The doormen were extremely friendly and quite humorous when watching us come back several times with a lot of shopping bags. The kitchen, although small, had all the items necessary to cook a home cooked meal for our friends. Thanks again to Mike for having great communication although being far away and his caretaker Jacqui for meeting us and making us feel at home.
