hey Steve,

when I was living there all I heard was music playing loud, dogs barking, chicken clucking and roosters crowing all day long. After 9 months of that I was as crazy as the animals.

Honestly art, you have to research well before you decide to stay in an area that closely suits your needs.

Cheers, Steve.

I aim settle far from neigbours, but then I get risk for loud WILD animals instead. I will need to research about where monkeys or birds can become annoying. Can be tempting to give monkeyes some food, because they can be funny, BUT better never because - as kids geting free icecream tell each other so it become invasion - monkeys can tell each other too.

And some monkeys are skilled thieves
I have forgot where I saw it - just at internet, I stay out of tourist places - a monkey snatched drinks from tourists often so it seemed he had became alcoholic.

steve,

I found in the Philippines it is hard to find a quiet place. the best places are the gated communities that do not allow chicken, goats and etc in the community. Also, the ones that don't allow loud parties and karaoke. there were a few of the gated subdivisions in the davao city area that kept things under control.

hey CVGTPC1,

You are so right. Things can change very quickly there. Like I said before while I lived there I found several gated subdivisions that do not allow all this crap to continue since most of the home owners are foreigners. So the housing association polices the area pretty well. I would never buy a house in a gated community with mostly Filipinos. Sorry, but that becomes a problem.

The maximum number of foreigners allowed is 40% so you can never have more foreigners than filipinos, I think what the difference is the type of subdivision, lots sold and self built or regulated.

ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!!!

Many years ago, after I first arrived here in the Philippines, (2013/2014), I bought a condo in a very nice gated community. they had rules and regulations covering everything...which was good because everyone knew the rules right up front!

The problem was enforcing those rules! People started bringing in roosters and very large dogs and goats...farm animals and large pets were clearly prohibited. The Property Management tried feebly to stop these violations but the tenants/owners had either a rich or famous family member or a politician friend to make waves...so the management started ignoring the rules and letting people get away with everything.

I was very fortunate and found a Japanese businessman who really wanted a condo at that location but none were available...so I sold him mine and got out of there before the noise was out of control! It was getting crazy...
