Much too hot for me for most of the year, you're always looking to redirect fans, have AC on etc ..found it irritating....unless you have a large income you can't run centralised AC. So I'm in Tagaytay. Scoring it on the list above, out of 10:

a. 10
b 10
c 8 buses to Cubao
d 10
e 10, espec fruit
f 7
g 8
h 10
i 11 Only hot for a few weeks a year, then usually not a night.
j 7?

Notes: f..no real centre, many tourists weekend. But then Nuvali?...Soulless!
j...probably can do...many weekenders construct houses here and then find they are not using them..so offer them for rent. They take some searching out, but are around in the various subdivisions.

Plus decent hospital, 2 Malls plus smaller shopping centres and good eating out. Good assortment of Expats. Green!

Probably the worst aspect is weekend and holiday traffic, which you have to adapt to.
Hey Datchworth - wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to respond at such level of detail. Read this to my family and now they all just want to go to Tagaytay :-) For now its as long as we can find some affordable housing.

Thank you again!!

You know after so much research mainly around Manila and a bit into Baguio, Ismus, Indang - I kept running into mentions of smaller places in the country that had a lot to offer. Hence this post to bring this information out - so thank you very much.

I have done a bit of search of both Los Banos and Nuvali and wow Nuvali would be great for my children.

I have a question with accommodation - do you think I could find good long-term accommodation to rent? There is nothing on the net.

How far Los Banos from Nuvali?

TIA!
I have just come to Philippines from Thailand with my wife. Finding decent accommodation in Philippines generally is difficult. I assume a furnished property is what you are after?
Properties here are generally not well maintained and owners loathe to make them respectable living standards. Good luck but suspect you may have a difficult task as we did in Luzon.

Taal Volcano is active and if it erupts significantly many of those living on the "overlooking" slopes of Tagaytay could be directly in the line of fire, although the worst affected are likely to be at Talisay, down about 7 km on the lakeside. But those properties are some of the most expensive. Also some of those subdivisions are, to me, on unpleasantly steep terrain.

The worst thing one would probably experience in the various subdivisions on the other side of the ridge would be falling ash, depending on the wind direction.
