Hi scotttish,

Average consumption for water is roughly 1000 a month and electricity is 3000. Really depends on the number of people living in the house and appliances used of course. Can't say much about rent as we own. You've got a few choices when it comes to grocery stores or markets.

Cheers!

Thanks for the post on cost of living! I have a family of four. Wife, toddler, 6 year old and myself. We would probably have to rent first. I wonder if there are any decent private schools in the area...Any thoughts for this newbie?? Much appreciated!

Best to google and then use Google Earth to have a look..found Earth does not work to well on street view here but think it depends on the net connection.

Tagaytay is definitely a great place to live. Everything that you need is there unless you have to go to Manila for something that you need and can't find in Tagaytay. My wife and I live 1 hour from Tagaytay, in General Trias. We have been here since Jan 2009, prior to our move we lived for 3 months in Dipolog City and this was my last and final return to the Philippines. As far as you owning a business here, jon1 is correct, you do have to get a work permit AND 60% of your business has to be owned by your spouse for it to be legal. If you ever come up our way, we would like for you to look us up. It is easy, barring traffic conditions, to get to our place.

Ho Scottish, i live 20 mins away from Tagaytay. Sta Rosa Laguna in a gated community. More houses are for rent here in villages(mid to high end and very near schools and university than tagaytay. Water would be around 600/month, rent depends on the house a decent 105 sqm floor area is 25-30 laguna bel air or 3o-80k furnished in a very strict village like Sta rosa estate 2 or La Residencia. A lot of schools and malls actually i am walking distance to Nuvali. Tagaytay and Sta rosa are just near. I suggest Sta Rosa so if you need to go hospitals and makati its near less the traffic.

Thanks Billygoat and all others! After looking into reality based evidence from locals in the Tagatay area, we decided that the move was too financially and emotionally expensive. I have 3 grandkids I would never see, and my wife likes the USA better. Also, after my research, I found that I couldn't really live on $3,000/month (US) there anyway, although I make more than that, I wouldn't really save much after all of the costs, grease money, legal paperwork, trips to Manila, etc...But, thanks all for the great tips!! You all rock!!

You can live here with that amount but at first of course with the moving there is big amount involve payment for deposit etc after that its pretty easy. Just give as a heads up if you are in PI and nearby maybe we could all meet up and help you around. Good luck
