This spacious, 35 sqm studio is located at the corner of Ayala Ave and Sen. Gil Puyat Ave, and is less than 5 mins away from Greenbelt, Ayala Triangle and Shangri-la Hotel. Enjoy a comfortable double bed, full kitchen (with oven!) & ensuite bathroom.
This is a wonderful studio unit at one of the most conveniently located condominiums in Makati. I stay here when I am in the Philippines, but I spend most of my time out in Singapore.
This unit is spacious -- it can sleep two and have space leftover for several luggages and a surfboard (#true story)! Polished parquet floors give it a warm ambience, and the windows by the bed overlook the rest of Makati City.
In the unit you will find the following:
- double bed (sleeps 2)
- nightstand, reading lamp, vanity table, mirror
- dining table with chairs
- cooker, oven, hood, microwave
- pots, pans, plates, spoons, forks, etc
- kitchen sink
- ensuite bathroom with shower, toilet, sink, mirror
- wardrobe, cabinets, bookcase
The location makes it great as a home base for those doing a short stint in Makati, or looking to explore the city (but would prefer not to pay the $$$ rates of hotels 5 minutes away). The condo is at the corner of Ayala Avenue and Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue, 2 of the main thoroughfares of the Makati Central Business District. Across the road is RCBC Plaza (incl. the UNDP and the embassy of Canada, Germany and Australia, among others), and around the corner is the Makati Medical Hospital.
The Makati CBD is generally a safe and well-guarded area. For extra peace of mind, this building has a 24/7 security and roving guards. There is also a 24-hour concierge at the lobby, who can assist with booking taxis.
The Columns Makati is an Ayala development, and as it is the most prestigious property developer in the Philippines, you can expect top notch facilities. Some of the facilities include:
- Swimming pool
- kiddie pool
