Question Short term condo in Fort Bonifacio

Hello,
My wife and I are planning to go back to Philippines. She's from Cebu, I'm from France. We already lived 2 years in Cebu but I'm not a big fan of the place. So we were thinking Fort Bonifacio.
How easy it is to find a short term rental 2 bdr condo ? We might stay longer than a year but we prefer to rent month to month.
CAn you recommend a good condo tower ?

Thanks

Thank you for your answer.
We plan to move in next january.
We lived in Cebu for 2 years prior to that and are now in Europe.

I'd really like to not have to buy a car so location is paramount to us. We'd like to be close to the supermarket and mall/restaurants.

Budget is around 80k

Hi charlez! There are numerous developments to choose from at BGC. and yes its very convenient to live in that area because you almost everything 5-15 mins away. I guess your looking for a furnished unit?

I was in exactly the same situation as you are.

It's surprisingly difficult. One apartment owner even refused to sign an 8 months contract, even though the apartment was already more expensive than others and he seemed to have no one else interested.

The reason is that the middlemen always want one month rent commission.

I got a short term apartment through an outfit that specialises in them. Called Corporate Apartments (unfortunately this website does not allow me to post e-mail addresses, try googling Claire Arizobal from Corporate Apartments)

I'm in Grand Hampton Tower II. Average building, average furniture, but does the job.

Arayat,

Since the original poster has asked for the information it is okay to post names and links in this thread.

The system does not let me. A message pops up saying that because I don't have 5 posts yet I can't put e-mail addresses in my posts. So I had to delete it again before posting (I didn't feel like doing 3 dummy posts just to be deemed worthy of being trusted with an e-mail address).

The 5 post count is part of the rules of the forum. However, it would appear that you have the needed five at this time.
Feel free to edit your post and add the links if you would like..

Here we go, Claire's e-mail is: [email protected]
80K may get you a one bedroom apartment with them.
And yes, you don't need a car when living in Fort Bonifacio.

Hello,
Thank you Arayat for the infos ! I'll check it out.
Gee... 80k for a 1bdr, it's quiet expensive ! I saw that kind of prices on Ayosdito but I expected the prices would be lower after negociation... And when you check the listings on line, the condos available are small, with ugly furnitures and with old and loud AC (not even splitted one!).


FYI I paid 70k for a 2bdr in Cebu city in one of the most luxury condo !

Can you recommend a condominium where to live ? I'd like to be close to a supermarket, S&R or Market Market.

I'll contact Claire asap.

Thanks

Also, I was thinking contacting owners who put their condo on Airbnb, maybe they'll be more open to a month to month contract since they're already doing short term...
