Property description

Citylights Gardens is a secure, beachfront, centrally located property above Cebu, with a fantastic view over the city. The city centre is only a 10-minute drive away. When traffic conditions are favourable, you can reach Mactan Island and its numerous beaches in as little as 30 minutes.

The apartment
This bright apartment features a fully equipped kitchen, a large living room, and two bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms. The bedroom and living room both have access to 2 beautiful balconies with a magnificent view of the pool, Camotes Island, and the sea. Thanks to the apartment's location, guests need not succumb to their fear of heights. The balconies are on the same level as the tree tops, which gives off the feeling of standing in one's own garden.

Although all rooms are air conditioned, merely opening a few doors makes air conditioning unnecessary. Thanks to its elevated location on a mountainside, steady winds create a cool and comfortable atmosphere; should the wind ever die down, guests can use the very effective ceiling and standing fans.
The apartment is fully equipped. It boasts a large refrigerator/freezer, a 4-ring gas stove with oven, all necessary cooking utensils, and a washing machine in the work room. The apartment has WiFi internet, Internet-TV in one of the bedrooms, and a TV and stereo system in the living room.

Outdoor facilities
The apartment has quick and easy access to the nearby outdoor facilities, which include a fitness centre, lounging area, and a small golf course. The wonderful yard is a great place to play sports or spend your free time, and can host many activities for children and adults alike. Next to it are a well-equipped fitness room, tennis courts, a basketball court, a very nice swimming pool, children's playgrounds, a sauna, and a jogging trail.

Cebu City is a bustling city in the middle of the beautiful Visayas Islands in the Philippines. From here, you can easily make day trips or short outings to numerous attractive destinations. The combination of nearby beaches and the comprehensive services offered in a vibrant city contributes to the special charm of a stay in Cebu City. The nightlife and the international cuisine on offer are an inexhaustible source of entertainment while on holiday.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I moved to Cebu to work as a trainer of teachers in the University. I immediately fell in love with the friendly locals, the vibrant life, and the inexhaustible and versatile job opportunities. Since my wife is a teacher, we have had the chance to spend numerous holidays here with our children.

Why the Owner Chose Cebu City:
As a lover of special real estate, I carefully researched the island's housing market and found this wonderful dream apartment. I had no doubt that this bright apartment, with its large windows and breathtaking view, was the perfect investment. Due to my career change, my family and I only use this apartment occasionally. We have therefore decided to share this beautiful place with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The apartment is bright, has an exceptional view of the garden and pool, which is lit by night, and is very close to the city and the beach. The area boasts numerous fantastic restaurants, bars, beaches, ferries, shopping malls and supermarkets, as well as ferries to other islands. There is almost always a bit of wind.
