Greenbelt offers numerous options to have fun and this unit is just walking distance from it. It’s convenient location makes it perfect for balikbayans or a barkada night out.

Makati: 2 bedroom in Rockwell (P5529, 6 guests)

Rockwell is another area in Makati that groups will enjoy. The unit is spacious and the sun fills it beautifully. Your whole squad and family can go down for a swim too.

This contemporary 1 bedroom loft is designedly beautifully. It is spacious enough for a small family of 4 or an intimate barkada staycation.

Quezon City: 100 square meter Eastwood Loft (P5486, 5 guests)

Not a lot of condominium units are made like this – 100 square meters of space to enjoy. With floor to ceiling glass, you can enjoy natural light streaming inside and a view of Eastwood. If you can’t put down your gadgets, internet speed here is at 50 MBPS.

Mandaluyong: A NY inspired 2 bedroom (P2490, 6 guests)

On a budget but looking for an Insta worthy staycation? You will have a lot of nooks to shoot at in this listing. The space may be a tad smaller than the other units in this article but it will charm you with its personality. It’s also been featured inside the pages of Real Living.

Mandaluyong: A room with a view (P3061, 6 guests)

The Acqua Private Residences unit leans toward the minimalist side. With generous space and a gorgeous view of Makati, this might be the perfect weekend sanctuary in Mandaluyong.

BGC: 1 bedroom with perks (P3885, 4 guests) 

There are 2 things going for this property: free parking and 100 MBPS internet. More often than not, listings usually do not come with parking so this is a gem. Make it a night out with the barkada and party as little or as much as you want. Crash here in the evening without worrying how people are going home.

I really have a thing for natural light? This 2 bedroom in downtown BGC allows everyone to enjoy their personal space at 85 square meters. If you get bored, a quick visit downstairs will do the trick. The property is surrounded by a myriad of establishments.

BGC: Affordable listing with a great view (P2379, 6 guests)

BGC is not cheap and at under P3000 for 6 people, this is the most affordable listing in that area. Throw in free parking and 62 MBPS and this is definitely value for your money.
