Condo | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Looking for a clean and classy place to stay in the middle of a safe and exciting neighborhood? This is it!
This is a 2 BR, 2 Bath condo in one of the best buildings in Eastwood. The master bedroom is spacious with its own ensuite bathroom - instant hot water with great shower pressure (in all honesty, my shower is probably my favorite part of my place - along with my windows and walls). The room has two very large windows that lets in a lot of natural light. I've put up dark curtains to help those who prefer to sleep in a bit.
The second bedroom is much smaller and is really best suited for a maximum of 2 people (any more and it gets cramped), but I do have a futon and air mattress that we can set up in the living room to accommodate more guests.
There are closets in both bedrooms with drawers in each closet.
The second bathroom is right next to the second bedroom. Again, it has both hot and cold water with great water pressure. Also, and perhaps this is strange to include, but my septic system is strong enough to handle the flushing of toilet paper. You'd be surprised by how often I get this question.
The kitchen has pretty much everything you would need for basic meals. It does not have an oven, but does have a fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee and rice maker and all the typical cooking/dining utensils.
The dining room has a table that can seat 6. The living room has lots of lounging options.
There is a mini-bar in the dining room that you're welcome to use. If you do drink my booze, it'd be nice if you chipped in a few pesos to help me restock.
The entire condo is equipped with wireless Internet (fast for Manila standards) and cable. I'm not a big TV watcher, but have added a small, flat screen television and DVD player in the living room for guests. Keep in mind, it is only 19" - I do, however, have a projector, which you are more than welcome to use to watch a movie - I can show you how to set this up. I have a high ceiling and big walls, which makes projecting movies a treat.
There is a balcony, which has quite the view of the Eastwood Promenade and dancing fountains. Usually, people go out here to smoke - or to scope out the traffic situation on C-5.
There are AC units in both bedrooms as well as the living room. They are not the quietest models, but I haven't found them to be a problem. They do a good job keeping the place cool. Please see my "House Rules" for more info about the AC units.
The maximum # of guests is 4, but I'm a little flexible with this, so please be in touch if you have questions. Basically, the place could accommodate up to 6 people easily, so long as a couple guests in your party are okay with sleeping on a futon and/or queen sized air mattress.
The condo is in an upscale high rise building with 24 hour security, lobby guards and concierge, 4 high speed elevators, a 5th floor roof deck/garden with a swimming pool and gym. It's a fairly swanky place.
Eastwood is one of the most vibrant commercial hubs in Metro Manila. There is a plethora of restaurants featuring local and international cuisine, great shopping, live entertainment, two cinemas and a really active night life. The best part is that it is literally right below you. No need to worry about getting around Manila (and facing the notorious Manila traffic!) when all this is at your door step.
If you do need to get around the city, taxis are super easy to hail as there is a taxi queue located right outside the building. A lot of multinational companies are located in Eastwood, so I've never found it difficult to catch a cab. Even better, virtually every cab driver knows Eastwood so no worries about getting lost finding your way home.
Eastwood itself is located very near Ortigas (10 min drive), Fort Bonifacio Global City (The Fort - 15 min drive) and Quezon City (Ateneo and UP - 15 min drive). Makati is about a 20 min drive away - assuming light/regular traffic. However, as you've guessed, these estimations go out the door once rush hour traffic hits!
I'm a Filipino-American working as a consultant and this condo is my primary home in Manila. During reservations, I stay in a nearby province or with friends living in the same building. Of course, I will still be accessible to provide assistance during your stay.
Ideally, the maximum stay is between 1-2 weeks. If you're looking to stay for longer, shoot me a message, and we'll see if we can make it happen.
Lastly, two sweet dogs live here, but won't be around during your stay.
