Me and my hubby live in GMA,Cavite.Its like an hour away from Tagaytay.He liked it here,its still cooler compared to staying In Manila.We tried living around Metro Manila and I cant describe how he hates it there because its so hot,polluted & over-crowded a lot of times.Im not saying all of them but some of them are just rude to just keep staring at him..my husband is tall,white & have tattoos...well i guess,theyre not use to see filipino guy with some ARTS on their arms.anyway,he doesnt like people staring at him(who does anyway,i dont either)Where we live now is a lot better,although we're not living in a high class subdivision(we cant afford to buy yet),its still quiet and cooler.Just like Mikey48 said,it saves us using the a.c. Right now,we're renting an apartment worth PhP 3,500($83)/month,2 storey house with 2 bedrooms upstairs.My husband said,its a pretty decent house to live in.Im glad he liked it because he's a picky person..my mom,our son,my brother & 2 siberian dogs live with us.I agree with Gene, to live a little far away from your spouse family,i cant say im glad but im not in good terms with my moms side of the family & my fathers side of the family so i dont have problems with unannounce visits( i dont like that either)..
I can say Dasmarinas & Tagaytay is a good place to live in too.Goodluck.

Tagaytay is tourist area overlooking Taal Lake which has the smallest active volcano on an island in the lake. It is quite picturesque. The cost of housing may be a little higher depending on what you are looking for. I rent a nice townhouse for P10,000 and there are others in my neighborhood that go for a little less. I have seen places that go for P5,000 but aren't as nice. We have 24/7 security and most residents are weekenders only keeping it quiet, most of the time. We are a short block from the highway where much public transportation is available. There are many nice subdivisions where you can buy a beautiful home, putting it in your wife's name of course. Tell you what. Hit me on private message and we can arrange to talk if you want. Drawback is there is no mall here but a short trip to Dasmarinas offers 2 malls.

Hi Mikey,I am looking at moving to Tagaytay in a few months. Are there still places to rent for 10,000 or less. Not looking for anything big.
Thanks

Default were to live?

Hi all Daxx here, mid 40's man from canada and have a Filipina wife there.

i have being there many times and spent hundred's of hours online doing my research on Philippines..

Were to live is so case sensitive to each person. things like health? how long you will be staying in the country? your filipina wife her needs ? and her family..

For us we are in the Bayan town proper of Dasmarinas Cavite.. if you need to be in the south but still kinda close to the city, were there is Malls , Collages , Universities, large Universities Hospitals and very good Elementary/High Schools and still were relativly cheap land cost compared to Tagaytay you should consider it.. there is Volets Water Slide Park very close and inexpensive Aparatell Accommodations close for visitors..

For Us this is our Home Base, It's our place close to the city were we can have a solid platform , our JUMPING POINT from were we travel the rest of the country on week long vacations..

Default Tagaytay

Hi Chapala,

Yes there are still places here that go for 10,00 or less. I am vacating my townhouse on Sept. 13 and it goes for 10k plus 820 for association dues. Not the best area but it does have some benefits. Send me personal message and I'll give you my contact info. I lived in Buffalo so I'd love to talk to you. Get in touch.

Gator,,
from Dasmarinas to Tagaytay the best care is in the University District of Dasmarinas.. there is De La Salle University Hospital and many other care cliniques..
Tagaytay has a good hospital but Dasmarinas De La Salle i believe is far more equiped..

Close by there are the " AREAS " Area a-b-c-d-e-f ,, very very densely populated and not the most safe especially at night.. Dont live there!

its best to locate to the Bayan Town Proper Of Dasmarinas way more safe for foreigners..

but you could live in Tagaytay or Silang and do the 45 to one hour bus ride to the De La Salle district..

Thanks for the info. I am looking into several different options right at the moment. I really want to be near a hospital that has the better equipment. This gives me something to go on when I return to RP. Thanks again Canfill

Thanks Buttercup1984- The only thing I'm now waiting on is our Passports. I figure we will be in the RP on 11-1 so if you see a pinay with a big 6'3" white dude with a long goatee, mustache and sunglasses ...Don't worry ..the Hells Angels didn't arrive it's just ME! LOL Thanks Again!
