  • Home Away from Home

    "My 3 week stay in Mandaluyong turned into one month. This was not a problem for the owner. I rented this Condo as it was a 3 minute drive to my friends Condo in Wack Wack. It was perfect for me as a single W female first timer to the Philippines. The area is close to 3 shopping malls. With supermarkets. The Pool was very well maintained. The food in the Hotel quite was quiite good. If you have never been to Manila and can't speak Tagalog this the staff are very helpful. The manager of the Condo, and the owner are availbale to help if you have any problems."

  • A Great Condo and Wonderful Location

    "My one month stay at the Greenbelt condo was wonderful. The listing description and photos accurately describe and reflect the actual condo/apartment. Kathleen greeted me and showed me everything I needed to know about the condo. It was clean and well-maintained -- there was a small leak in the CR, but the building maintenance staff took care of it very quickly. The condo is very quiet. The building staff was very friendly, cooperative and helpful. The location of this condo is in a very safe area .. only a few minutes walk to the Greenbelt and Glorietta (a 60php cab ride) Malls where there are ample stores and restaurants and Rustans grocery store. There are some fast-food places close (KFC, Subway, Inasal, Starbucks, Barrio Fiesta) .. but they are closed on Sunday. There are plenty of mini-markets (7/11), banks and a church within short walking distance. There is convenient access to taxi-cabs - the building staff is more than co-operative is hailing a cab. The Wi-Fi and Internet cable worked flawlessly the entire time and I was able to do some of my normal work activities. There were really no "negatives" .. maybe one could comment on the views from the front and back windows - nothing very interesting from the 20th floor :-) A reminder for those considering .. the electric is NOT included in the base rental. My experience was about 2500 php per week - with 1 of the 2 aircon units running basically 24/7 because while I was there it was quite hot and humid. I would absolutely recommend this condo to friends/relatives . it is very comfortable for two people. Thanks Joan and Kathleen for a great place - I would definitely stay there again if the situation arises to be in Makati, Legaspi Village."

Manila Metro Travel Tips

Best Time to Visit Manila

Manila is located in the tropics, with the result that the weather is warm all year-round. The humidity levels are very high and the rainy season runs from May to December. It’s generally the wettest in August and September. In terms of weather, most people choose to visit Manila in the semi-dry season which runs from December to April. In general though, Manila can be visited year-round.

Getting to Manila Condos

Manila is the official capital city of the Philippines. The Ninoy Aquino International Airport is located eight kilometers from the city center. The airport has three terminals and receives mostly domestic and regional flights. If travelling from North America, you will have to route via one of the main hubs in the Far East such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok or Kuala Lumpur. There is an extensive rails system and light rail system in Manila which is the easiest way to get around this bustling city. There are taxis but the traffic congestion is so high in Manila that getting from place to place by road is very time consuming. For short distances, many of the locals use bicycles or pedalos which are bikes fitted with small engines.
