Awesome Eli and Jo and Mom Belen

Eli and Jo and Mom Belen were great guests. They are very charming and friendly. They are so flexible, respectful and understanding. They left the place clean. It was a real pleasure to have them as guests. We enjoyed the short talks we had with them. We would love to have them back.

Mary Ann & Bobet,

Thank you for letting us stay in your condo. Your patience & sincerity in making our stay peaceful & enjoyable are much appreciated.

The amenities you provided gave us a real good start for our vacation. I surely will recommend your condo to friends who desire to stay in a rental condo.

Thank you once again.

Eli and Jo, the pleasure is ours!

Awesome Noel and family

It was a delight hosting Noel’s family in our awesome fully furnished one bedroom condo at Eastwood City during their family vacation. They were very appreciative and took good care of our unit. We’re so lucky we always have wonderful and interesting guests. We enjoyed our short chats with them — we gave them tips on how to enjoy Eastwood and they told us about life in London.

Funny story. Every now and then, people forget.  We have our aircon units professionally cleaned every several months, and we clean the removable filter after every guest leaves.  Once, a few weeks before the scheduled professional cleaning,  we forgot to clean the removable filter.  Then Noel and family arrived.  The next day they called and said their son is a bit sensitive to dust and asked if we can clean the aircon?

We were so embarrassed, so we rushed to Eastwood armed with a portable vacuum cleaner to at least clean the removable filter and exterior.   After cleaning the aircon and profusely apologizing (we normally clean everything, how can we forget the one time we have guests who are sensitive to dust?), we chatted with Noel and family.

When they left, we found the notes that Nathan (the son who is sensitive to dust) left on the guest book, and the first page had this:

Our Feedback
Overall, I enjoyed the stay. It’s welcoming, and it is comforting to return here after long exhausting days!

Air BnB Feedback
For Mary Ann and Bobet

WWW ( what went well )

  • Location of the apartment (very near shops and restaurants)
  • Quality of the kitchen, toilet and bedroom, including the bed and TV
  • The fantastic view
  • The access to the internet
  • Sofa – Bed was also comfy

EBI (even better if )

  • Improve the bedroom door, it is very squeaky
  • Air-con by the sofa bed us very noisy
  • bathroom would usually flood after showers


Well Nathan, we just put some oil on the bedroom door hinge, so it is no longer squeaky, After the scheduled professional cleaning of the aircon, it now purrs quietly like a contented cat. We put silicone gutters in the shower to keep the water inside the shower stall.

Thank you for the 8.5 out of 10 rating, and the constructive criticism, Nathan!
We trust you’ll find the condo a “10” and a much enjoyable place to stay in when you return!

Best Deal and Perfect Hosts in Eastwood

One cannot ask for kinder hosts than Mary Ann and Bobet. They’ve thought of just about everything that will ensure a most comfortable stay in their cozy apartment – fast and reliable Wi-Fi, cable T.V. , local phone, microwave, oven toaster, hot and cold water dispenser, washing machine, drying rack, iron, towels, hangers, toiletries and even food items! Yes, it’s a small place, but they packed it well and neatly that I even had space to do my morning exercise routine 🙂 We easily got our Uber rides from this place to take us around the city. Of course there were days when staying in Eastwood and just walking around the shopping mall was enough to fill the day. I don’t think one can get a better deal than this considering all the amenities, facilities, security and convenience that this place offers.

Awesome Alexis

Alexis and family stayed only a few days, and we had only a few rounds of email and text messages before they arrived, but we had a pleasant time talking to them (as if we’ve known each other for a long time) on arrival and prior to departure. They were very appreciative and took very good care of our unit. We’d love to host them anytime.

We also loved the note she left in our guest book.

Mary Ann and Roberto,

Thank you for being so welcoming, accomodating and understanding! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Your thorough booklet/binder was extremely helpful too. My boyfriend, sister, and sister’s boyfriend really ejoyed our time were in Eastwood. I am really looking forward to to staying here again in the future. Until next time, take care, and please keep in touch!

Hannah stayed at the Awesome Vacation Condo in Eastwood

Awesome Hannah

Hannah  was very easy to communicate with from pre-booking and kept us abreast of her arrival plans. She was really friendly, warm and took amazing care of our condo.   Hannah extended her stay in our unit, we are very happy that she did!  We would have loved to have her longer had it been possible.

She was really a very nice guest. Very appreciative and polite. She left the place sparkling clean. Meeting young and vibrant people like Hannah is one of the reasons why we love having guests.

She left us this note on our guestbook:

This has been a wonderful retreat in the heart of Eastwood. I love the bright and open feel of this place, and how peaceful it is to be up here away from the heat and bustle of the city. Thank you for always checking in on me and for how organized and detailed your instructions have been! It is rare to find such a place!

The condo was bright, clean, and quiet. It has the benefit of being on a higher, outward facing floor, which means amazing views of the city and lots of light. It is well-stocked (toiletries, snacks, laundry detergent, etc) far beyond any other condo I’ve rented in Eastwood, which was a lovely surprise. The two AC units, water dispenser, and washing machine were absolute life savers. And one of the most remarkable things about this condo are the hosts. They really go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need, and are always very quick to respond to any questions. They make your experience feel personalized and comfortable, like they are welcoming you into their home. Would definitely stay here again!


We look forward to having you back, Hannah!

I had a fantastic time staying at this place. The hosts are very accommodating & would very much recommend to use this place. 24hours food, snacks & even bars just 2 minutes away from the place. The best thing about it is, I felt safe & staff were very friendly. Thank you once again for letting me stay in your beautiful place.

Jong and family from Singapore were our first guests at our Awesome Condo @ Eastwood City

Jong wrote in our AirBnB listing:
My family really enjoyed staying at Mary Ann’s place during our 2 weeks vacation. Truly feeling at home while we were there, and missing the place now that vacation is done. Mary Ann and her husband(Bobet? – not sure if I remember his name correctly), were really very good hosts who promptly attends to our needs and concerns. I would surely considering coming back to their place in the future. Highly recommended especially for people who loves being around places like Eastwood.

This by far is the most wonderful AirBnb accommodation we have ever seen. Makes me want to go home every year.

Indeed, a home away from home.

Thank you very much for welcoming us & looking forward to our next visit!

Every positive feedback from new friends just makes us work harder to make our condos better!

The whole experience of renting from the Prudente’s was a breeze. They really took time to explain how all the appliances and furnitures work. Their manual is impeccably done to ensure we had everything we needed even how to assemble the sofa bed! The condo was well equipped with all of the appliances we needed for cooking. Cleaning products were made available and clean drinking water was provided. My husband and I personally didn’t want to go out (except when meeting friends) because it was really comfortable like home. They even had groceries provided to us when we arrived. I would definitely come back to this place when I come home to the Philippines again 😉

We look forward to your visit!

“My recent stay at Mary Ann and Roberto’s condo was exactly what was needed for me to recover after a long stretch of work. The condo was as described, having all the comforts of home, and in a fantastic location with all necessities nearby. “

“The hosts met me on time and provided me with information of the area, fresh fruit to help recover from my travels, and even assisting me in obtaining a SIM for my phone. And for any questions I had during my stay, they were always responsive. Upon my return, it is very likely I would stay there again and am happy to recommend this condo and hosts for consideration by fellow travelers.”
