Comfortable, Convenient and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
First off - the owner and manager are both SUPER nice and professional. Gabe (the owner) and his sister Grace (property manager) are both very responsive and accommodating. It was truly a pleasure working with both of them!

The unit is well maintained and has all the conveniences you would expect to have at home PLUS it's in an ideal location. I stayed in this condo with my sister and her two young kids (10 and 7 years old) and it was absolutely perfect for what we needed. The building is extremely safe with 24hr security. The unit has cable TV, wifi, dvd player, Magic Jack phone, fully equipped kitchen (minus a dishwasher and oven), washer and dryer and a small safe to keep your valuables.

The building is located right across the street from Power Plant Mall which has a full grocery store, a large selection of restaurants, nice stores, coffee shops, a couple of salons and an arcade to keep kids entertained.

I would highly recommend this place and will definitely be booking it again for future trips to Manila.

EXCELLENT VALUE

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed in Joya six times over the last three years. It is a luxurious and safe facility which is maintained at the highest standards with excellent accessibility to the sophisticated Power Plant Mall across the street. The Rockwell neighborhood is beautiful with its greenery and is excellent for walking and/or jogging

Gabe's condo is in the North Tower of Joya. It is the quieter of the two main towers with fewer units per floor and more residents, as opposed to tourists, than the South Tower and thus the elevators and lobby are less congested. The North Tower is a distinct advantage of staying in this unit.

At first, Gabe's unit seemed a little more expensive to me than the other units, but I came to realize it is of excellent value. This unit is larger and has a den for extra space. The living room/dining room and the kitchen are larger allowing for entertaining of small groups of friends who might visit. While the neighborhood and the Power Plant Mall has many restaurants, buying groceries at the mall and cooking in the unit is very easy and, of course, much cheaper.

The condo is extremely clean and written instructions on how to use the electronic equipment, appliances, and wifi are posted conveniently in the unit.

Gabe also provides a local land line and a Magic Jack which are very helpful for every day communications and keeping expenses down. The private parking space in the basements also very useful. I do not drive in Manila but friends appreciated using the parking when visiting. The only other parking available is across the street in the Mall.

Gabe's sister manages the property and is always available should you have any requests or needs.

I highly recommend Joya and specifically this unit to others who want to stay in the Rockwell Area.

Exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5
Thank you, Gabe and Grace. The unit was exactly as described, clean, nicwely appointed, and well maintained. Both Gabe and Grace were easy to work with and very accommodating, as were the staff at Joya. My aunts and cousins were impressed with the size and completeness of the unit, and hopefully, will refer other potential tenants. I would certainly stay there again, and refer to friends and relatives. Although I have made a handful of visits to Manila, I've always stayed with relatives. This time, we were two single women who do not speak the language, or know which way to travel. It was important to us to be in a safe location, close to food, and transportation, as well as be conveniently located for my many relatives to visit. We were able to take taxis to Market Market one day and Greenbelt the next without incident. After waiting 1/2 hour for a taxi, we found it faster to lineup across the street at the mall taxi stand. The Delicatessen next door was convenient to pick up mirienda for my aunts and uncles when they came to visit, as was Rustan's for snacks, water, ice cream, fruit, etc.. I also enjoyed finding fresh salads and soup at Rustan's. We enjoyed a meal at Zaifu followed with halo halo at the food court. Thanks to my cousins, we enjoyed 1.5 hour at home foot massages and body massages for P350 each plus tip! The reserved parking space was a plus for visitors. Our only suggestions would be to provide a few dish towels for drying, and fix the shower faucet...it was either cold or hot, but never "just right". If you have long legs, it will be a tight squeeze to sit on the toilet without hitting your knees on the shower door.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a wonderful review. Your suggestions are dully noted and we'll take care of them immediately, except for the design flaw of the toilet. We’ll have to consult with the engineering team of Rockwell. I’ve had tall renters before, but that was never brought to my attention.
Thank you.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This was my family's first time in Rockwell and our overall stay was perfect! Gabe and his sister, Grace, are very friendly and accommodating. They also respond to questions or concerns in a timely manner and work with you to make sure you enjoy your stay.

The condo was just as described and pictured. Everything was clean and the unit was very classy. My family, especially my 2 daughters, were well relaxed in the air-conditioned condo. The best part was the accessibility of the condo to the Power Plant mall, just across the street! The view from the balcony at night was beautiful .. an added bonus! If you are looking for a "home-away-from-home", Gabe's condo is the perfect place! It's a secure and relaxing unit and we would not hesitate to book the condo again in the future!

Maraming salamat, Gabe and Grace, for your hospitality!

Secure...Exclusive...Classy

  • 5 of 5
I’ve always stayed @ Rockwell when I visit the Philippines on business or pleasure, but this is unit so far tops all the units I’ve stayed in. The location, the view, the appliances are top notch. The description of the unit is accurate as advertised. The property was well maintained. The furniture and bed are so relaxing. I made unlimited calls to the US at no additional cost because of the majickjack in the unit. I stay in Rockwell because of security and exclusivity. I don’t think there’s a place in Manila where you can walk to a 7/11 or around a business district in the middle of the night and not worry about your safety. I’ve always been impressed with Rockwell center security especially at night when I take walks to adjust to the time differences. The mall is literally steps away from the lobby. The property owner and manager are so nice and accommodating. I highly recommend this unit and already making plans for my next trip back.

Clean, convenient, classy.

  • 5 of 5
The condo was fully-furnished and appeared well-maintained. The decor and appliances were not cheap - nice paintings, flat screen tv, Bose speakers, fully-equipped kitchen, and even a Magic Jack phone for free calls to the US! Minutes from the airport and easy to find, its location right next to a high-end mall was very convenient for shopping, relaxation, dining, and meeting guests. The view of the Makati skyline from the bedroom and the living room was spectacular, especially at night. Highly recommended; we loved it!
