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 5 - 6 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.

BATHROOM: Do not flush anything other than toilet paper in the toilet unit. No feminine products should be flushed at anytime. Kindly check for possible water leaks while using the facilities and alert the owner immediately.

Or else, enjoy your stay!

“Perfect for a couple...”

“The place to stay”

Reviewed 7 Dec 2016

We are from California and we just rented this Condo last week for the 2nd time. Owner John Gappy is very nice and professional to deal with. Given the traffic in Manila, this is perfect since it is situated in the heart of QC, you have fastfood, resto and shopping mall within walking distance. You have the LRT and MRT station so you can beat the traffic in EDSA. If you plan to go out of town, provincial bus terminal is also located in Araneta Center. I had my brother from Texas rented this Condo last June and he was very happy with his experience. John Gappy always over deliver. Highly recommended!!!

Owner's reply: It is truly my pleasure to welcome anyone who chose to stay at my condos. I do go out of my way to treat my guests to the best!

“Best Accomodation”

Reviewed 5 May 2016

My Fiancee and I really love the place. Well maintained, clean and secured. John was very accomodating and always there when you need him. The place is accesible on almost everything, shopping centers, coffee shops, posh restos and entertainment. I definitely recommend this to my friends and family. And will surely stay on Johns condo again!! Brilliant!!!

“Great Location!”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2016

I stayed there with my daughter for about a month this march to April. John is a very attentive owner and handles anything that may crop up very professionally. My daughter was in the pool almost every day an we used the daycare several times as well. There is lots of shopping within walking distance and a good number of restaurants as well. We cooked in the condo a fair bit because it was so convenient. Overall we were very happy and highly recommend this condo.

John was a very nice and kind host. His listing is accurate. The neighborhood had plenty of restaurants and malls within walking distance. The apartment was cozy; clean and exactly how it is pictured in the listing! He was always available and prompt for all of our questions. We really appreciate John's hospitality and how he made us feel right at home. We loved our stay and will definitely be back!

Owner's reply: My great pleasure to make my guests stay 'just as home'...after their first stay they are already friends! Welcome back!!!

John Gappy was very professional, personable and likeable person. My travel itinerary were not going well as I expected w/ flight cancellations due to APEC meetings but John was so flexible and accommodated me. His place was so clean and great. Considering the price, it was so reasonable and If I may be able to come back to the Philippines, I will never have a second thought of staying at John's place in Manhattan Gardens. Kudos to you John, you made my trip a success. Thanks again..

Reviewed 3 Nov 2015

I stayed at this place for almost one month. The location was perfect! It was very convenient. Everything was walking distance from malls, supermarkets, a lot of different restaurants, MRT/LRT stations and Araneta Coliseum. The place itself was very impressive. It has a swimming pool, gym, business center and child care center. The size of the condo was just right for me. Last but not the least, the owner - John Gappy - made my stay hustle free. He made sure that the needs of his guests were all attended from regular maid service to clean beddings and towels. I will definitely stay at his place again on my next trip.

Owner's reply: It is my great pleasure and honor to share my condos with visitors so that they can also experience 'being at home' in Manila! Welcome back anytime!

“Perfect Place to stay in Manila”

Reviewed 4 Mar 2015

We are very happy that we found this place for our 20 days stay in Manila. This place is awesome! Everything is in there. its fully furnished that's why we dont need to worry about anything. The condo is well-maintained and clean. Once a week housekeeper will be there to clean the condo as well as change the towels and linens ( thank you ate wilma). Security in this place is great, too. my baby also enjoyed the place because there is a daycare center where she can able to play whenever she wants. And also, malls and restaurants and other establishments are only few minutes walk from this condo. And of course, we are very thankful to John because of his hospitality and kindness. Anytime we need help especially about the place ,he is always there. The first time that we communicated with John about the condo, we did not have the second thought to book the condo for our stay in manila. He is so honest and efficient. We surely recommend this condo to our friends here in Canada. Thank you so much John and we are really glad to meet you. We will see you again next year ( if your place is not fully booked) God bless!

Owner's reply: Thank you for sharing your feelings about staying at our condo. I also enjoyed getting to know your family and friends while visiting for weekly cleaning. Looking forward to have you back some time, doors open to your relatives and friends. Thank You Very Much!
