5. WHAT WE EXPECT FROM OUR GUESTS

SMOKING is NOT allowed inside the condo or within building premises.

OVERNIGHT STAY: People other than those formally approved by the building administration may not stay overnight in the property. The building management will not allow this for security reasons. Any additional person to sleepover must be made known to the owner in advance so that a supplementary staying permit may be granted. Your security is our top priority.

VISITING GUESTS: There is no limit to how many guests can visit those staying at the unit. However, the unit can only contain so many people at one time. An average of 10 people at one time looks like enough. Do take note that this is a residential place and no noisy parties should be held in the unity. The security guards patrol the buildings and will report any noise disturbances. They also have the right to intervene if they feel other residents are being affected by such noise.

PERSONAL SAFETY: Guests are responsible for their own personal safety. The owner of the condo and staff of the building are not responsible for any accidents, injuries or illness that may occur while on the premises. By accepting this reservation, it is agreed that all guests are expressly assuming the risk of any harm arising from their use of the premises or others whom they invite to use the premise.

CARE OF OUR CONDO: Guests are expected to keep the property and all furnishings in good order. Only use appliances for their intended uses.

PETS are not allowed. Take note, some condo owners keep pets and guests might see them. However, for hygiene and cleanliness purposes, this unit does not accept pets.

HOUSEKEEPING: There is no daily housekeeping service. The maid will clean the condo for free once a week. Guests will take the responsibility of daily cleaning and daily disposal of trash. Keeping trash for longer than 24 hours may attract ants and insects. For your own comfort, a quick trip to basement 1, by using elevators, will keep the place ant free and insect free (see instructions on trash disposal in our 'Pearl in the Sky' booklet).

USE OF TOWELS: Guests may use the towels when going to the swimming pools. However, we only change the towels once a week. We suggest you bring beach towels for use at the swimming pool. Loss of our towels will request a payment of 250 PHP per towel loss. We will not accept other towels to compensate for loss. This is because we need to guarantee that the replacing towel is the same quality as the lost one.

“EXCELLENT!”

Reviewed 7 Mar 2017

As far as location, security (safety) and comfort, this place is highly recommended. The owner John is very professional and awesome to deal with! He really make sure that our stay would be as comfortable as possible. We had a smooth hassle-free check-in and out experience. The condo has excellent amenities and is conveniently located in the middle of Araneta Center, very nice and clean. The whole Manhattan Parkway Staff are polite and very accomodating. Parking/Wi-fi was never an issue. I spent a lot of time looking for an ideal place to stay, and found our home away from home. We will definitely come back on our next trip.

Owner's reply: It is always my pleasure to welcome new and returning guests. Looking forward to have your family stay at my condo again.

“Wonderful Stay”

Reviewed 17 Jan 2017

We stayed at this condo for 3 weeks and had a wonderful time. The owner, John, was very accommodating and very easy to deal with. The condo is very well situated in the middle of just about anything. The MRT and LRT stations are within walking distance and there are plenty of places to eat within walking distance.

“Second time at the Pearl”

Reviewed 2 Dec 2016

I rented this great place for the second time this year, and I was impressed by all the new restaurants and amenities found downstairs. The Manhattan area is developing nicely and this Condo is ideally located to enjoy all of it. This is not to mention how clean and comfortable the unit is. You can't understate the convenience of being at the heart of Araneta Center. Everything you need is just a short walk away. Thank you to Mr. Gappy for accommodating me in such short notice, always a pleasure staying at the Pearl.

“Comfy and Convenient”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2016

Stayed here with my Mom, brother, and sister for three weeks. The condo is just a couple of minutes walk from Gateway Mall and as such is very accessible and convenient. The living room is nice and bright and having two full bathrooms is very helpful especially if you plan on entertaining a few guests. The building is secure and the staff is nice. John is a very friendly and accomodating man who personally greeted us when we checked in, and also personally came with his cleaning lady to make sure that everything was going well. I wholeheartedly recommend staying here if you're looking for a safe, clean, and extremely conveniently located condo.

“Truly a " Pearl in the Sky"!”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2016

The 22 nights we spent at "Pearl in the Sky" condo unit was all exceptional! The condo unit owner, John was very professional and was on top of everything from the beginning up to the end of our stay. John was prompt when replying to e-mails and provided all the necessary information and answers to questions in all clarity and in complete details. Easy check-in and check-out. John made everything hassle free and was very accomodating to all that we needed for the duration of our stay. Truly amazing service! The thing we liked most was the proximity of the place to everything. The location was very convenient that you could just walk within 5 minutes to Gateway Mall, Ali Mall, SM, Farmers, Shopwise and Araneta Centre. Tons of eating places that you won't even bother to cook anymore as everything can get delivered to you if not eating out. The LRT and MRT are just a few steps away if you are adventurous enough to commute on your own. Also, building security was excellent. We were notified each time prior to having our guests proceed to our unit. There were elevator personnel that were on 24-hour shift. One parking spot was alloted for the unit. The kitchen was fully equipped with pots and pans (which would have been nicer if they were a little bit newer though not a big of a deal as we only had used it a couple times) utensils and small kitchen appliances including a microwave. It has a conduction cook top and a good size fridge. Added bonus in the condo was the washer/dryer which was really handy as we were able to use it a few times at our convenience! The condo unit was exactly how they looked in the pictures. Excellent view from the 22nd floor overlooking the Araneta Centre and the new Novotel hotel. The unit was bright and have large windows. It was two studio units combined so was big enough to accomodate a family of 4. Having two rest rooms was convenient. Wifi was excellent and cleaning lady came once a week to change the beddings and freshen everything up! There were two AC units that worked really well and kept the temperature always cool which made our stay comfortable especially when coming back from being away the whole day in the heat. We were given access to the building amenities like the gym and the pool but didn't have the chance to use them as we were always out everyday. All in all, I must say that the condo unit was truly a "Pearl in the Sky". Great value for your money considering the convenient location and easy a
