About this listing
Loc: Tower 1, San Lorenzo Place Condominium, Chino Roces corner Edsa Avenue, Makati City. Perfect for budget travelers who want to explore Manila using safe public transport. It is beside MRT Magallanes Train Station.
The place is a ONE (1) Bedroom apartment, not Studio, which means the living room and kitchen are separated from the bedroom.
The bed is customized, it is higher than normal beds. This is so guests can put their big luggage below the bed.
The building is a newly built condominium.
Sound proof from outside noises such as cars and other building's construction.
Please note that if my neighbors decided to have their unit fixed, you will definitely going to hear noises. Whether the building is new or old or even if this is an actual house and lot, if your neighbor will have their construction, you will hear it. But they are only allowed from 8am-5pm weekdays only. If you hear noises beyond those hours and on weekends, let the security guard know.
Kitchen: I have cooking utensils, plates, cups, spoons and forks. I also have thermos pitcher and microwave oven.
Internet: Internet Provider is Globe. I don't like to over advertise, but the guests did said that I should note that internet is fast.
Trash: I have a trash bin but taking out of trash is beyond my jurisdiction. The whole building admin has a policy in which I have no control. Basically they want guest/s to call them then they will send someone to pick up your bag of trash. They do this so the building will not smell. Old buildings have problems with smell because of their garbage chute. This buildings does not have garbage chute. Please do not take it against me and comment about cleanliness because you forgot that this is included in the description or you forgot to tell your friend.
Gym is accessible.
Pool is not yet available.
Interaction with guests
Once you book, my number will appear on this ad. Call me in case you need anything within the booking such request for "different blanket" upon your check in, although our beddings are always newly washed.
But, I will not give any request beyond of what I posted such as "get me a big dining table"or "get me a big cabinet" or (after 5 days of their stay, not mechanical related) "the place smells". What you see in the post is what you get. Once you are staying, it is your obligation to maintain the cleanliness.
The main advantage of this property is It is along Edsa, the MAIN High Way that connects Metro Manila cities.
The building is connected to the station (MRT Magallanes Station) of MRT, our main train line in Metro Manila.
It is also 5 minutes walk to the PNR Train Edsa Station. PNR Train connects nearby provinces and Metro Manila.
Bus stop is also located inside at the ground floor of the building.
Going to the airport or anywhere is much easier here compared to any other places because you have the option to skip the traffic inside Makati, which will take you about an hour to get out of Makati, and finally head to your destination.
Going to Greenbelt and Glorietta is just 1 jeepney ride away or 1 train station away. To be honest, if you are not lazy or doesnt mind the pollution of manila, you can just walk to there.
There is a bus link station within the building. One of the most distinct route is Mckinley The Fort Taguig. So anyone who wants to go to Taguig wont have to take a taxi.
There is a mall across the main road of Edsa, called Alpha Mall. There is also a SM Hypermarket(Groceries) right across Chino Roces Avenue. 24 hour Seven Eleven 7-11 store can be found in Wilcon building which is just the adjacent building of my place.
San Lorenzo Place Condominium is near VFS office where applicants to Europe, Australia, England and etc apply. There are no other residential building that is closer to VFS global other than San Lorenzo Place.
Going to Korean Embassy is just a bus away to Mckinley The Fort.
Other things to note
Do not use the address used by airbnb. The map is correct but the address is wrong. Philippines do not use that kind of address and if you use it, no one will know. Use the address in my summary/description.
My table is small. I do not have a big cabinet, but my bed is high enough to cater you big luggage. I have two clothing hangers, if you need more, message me in advance.
If you cook, it might smell, but that is the purpose of the exhaust range hood. Even condominiums in Europe have the same situation, that once you cook, your range hood cannot quickly take up the smoke. Just turn on the range hood long enough until all the smell is sucked up.
Insects : The place is new and was just delivered last late of May 2016. Mattress, beddings and sofa are all brand new, so it is unlikely that the place will have bugs, but if ever you feel that there is and you are certain about it, call us and show it to us.
Always close the door and window so insects will not get inside.
My unit is within the building on the 20th Floor and im not sure if mosquitoes/flies can go high enough to the 20th. But if ever you see them, please inform me so I can deal with it for you or the next guest.
Airbnb exist because the concept is different from hotels. We will try to cater you as much as we can, but dont expect us to "nanny" you. This is the reason why we are cheaper because we do not have to pay employees to assist your every move.
You do not have neighbors for now, so you can make noises all you want.
If short term stay, just leave your trash, we will take care of it when you leave.
Please, do not break anything.
Hi. I am a young business woman who owns a security firm, environmental consultancy and a trading company. I converted my office as an airbnb bed space because it is quite big for me. I also posted my newly delivered condominium unit that I just bought.
Once you are my guest, you can call me anytime in case you are in trouble, even outside my place/s. Trust me on this, I can help you :)
In case I am not around, especially if I am travelling as well, I have 10 people that I can call to assist you. So do not worry, I will be just a text/message away.
