Great Location! The condo is located in the heart of the entertainment area. It is a very short walk to all of the bars and clubs on Fields Avenue. Some of the bars are right across the street and the biggest sports bar in Angeles is on the first floor of the building.
Condo Description: Condo #24 is 66 square meters or 710 square feet (not including the balcony) and it is on the third floor on the backside of the building, providing peace and quiet. The condo and all items inside were bought new in 2009. It is furnished with all custom-made wood furniture and all tile floors. From the balcony, you have a view of a volcano and the pool at the Pacific Breeze Hotel. The condo is connected to the Wild Orchid Resort by an internal passageway. The condo has both 110v and 220v outlets throughout and there is a back-up generator for the building during power outages. The generator also runs both air conditioners. The water is provided by a deep well and water storage to ensure no outages. The apartment has its own 30 gallon electric water heater.
Living Room: The walls are custom hand painted. The sofas are all black, genuine leather, imported straight from Italy. Both sofas and the rocking chair fully recline. There is a 42” Toshiba LCD TV and Pioneer DVD player with a 6-speaker pioneer surround sound system with a collection of DVD movies. There is also a Magic Sing (Karaoke) with thousands of Filipina and English songs.
Kitchen: The kitchen counter is imported granite. The appliances consist of a stove with 4 burners and hood, sink, refrigerator, microwave, water cooler, toaster oven, rice cooker, toaster, coffee pot, blender, cordless kettle, pressure cooker, and crock pot. There are also pots and pans, plates, bowls, glasses, cups, silverware, etc.
Bedroom: The walls are custom hand painted. There is a king size bed with a 40,000 peso luxury orthopedic mattress. There is also a wall closet, dressor with mirror, and night stands. Secured to the wall inside the closet is a sentry safe. The safe is big enough for a laptop (inside dim 10”L x 17”W x 13”D). The bedroom has a 42” Toshiba LCD TV, Pioneer DVD player, iron, ironing board, and IPhone docking station. The black-out curtains are custom hand made.
Bathroom: Full size, American-type washer and dryer are located in the bathroom. The shower, sink, and washer all have both hot and cold water. The glass shower doors are hand painted, etched, and frosted (non-transparent). The shower is big enough for 2 or 3 people.
Balcony: There is a table with two chairs. Also, a clothes rack to dry clothes if you choose not to use the dryer.
Security: The building has 24/7 security. There are at least two guards on duty at any one time. I personally have never locked the balcony door. Security will not let anyone go to or leave your condo unless they call you and get approval from you. You can make arrangements with security to let certain people come and go as they please. Security is there for you. The front door has 3 locks. One of the locks is keyed on both sides and if you decide to lock it, then it will be impossible for anyone to exit the condo unless they have the key. Another lock has a special key that cannot be copied.
Computer: The computer is a HP dual CPU E2200 @ 2.2 GHZ with genuine Windows Vista Home and Office 2007 Home. It has a HP 19” LCD monitor, HP DeskJet (color printer, scanner, and copier), web cam, and headset with microphone. The building has two separate high speed Internet feeds (cable and phone) so if one goes down, then the backup is switched on.
Wild Orchid Resort: The condo is connected to the Wild Orchid Resort by an internal passageway. The Wild Orchid Resort has 2 swimming pools with wet bars and both pools are free to use for you and your guests. The pools are open 24/7 except during treatment. There is also a restaurant, bar, travel agency, poker room, pool table, atm, and money exchange.
Telephone: The internal phone in the room can be used to call security, the office, and room service. It cannot be used to make local or long distance calls. It is much cheaper to use Yahoo Messenger or Skype on the computer for long distance calls. For local calls, you are going to find out that everyone sends text messages by cell phone. New cell phones start at 1,800 pesos and prepaid sim cards are about 200 pesos.
Maid Service: Maid service is included in the rates. For stays of 4 nights or less, maid service is provided daily. For stays of 5 nights or more, maid service is provided 2 days per week.
Other: 24 hour room service is available from the Wild Orchid Resort and the menus are in the room. The condo has one king size bed that sleeps 3 people comfortably. Three extra complete set of linens are stored in the rental office if you need them. The building has two full-time maintenance personnel (no cost) to fix any problems that might arise, they even change light bulbs. The building has an elevator so the condo is wheelchair accessible but the condo and bathroom have not been modified. Digital cable package on both TVs with 100 channels, more than 40 are international. ATM in lobby. There are no extra charges for guests or visitors.
Getting there: If you are arriving in Manila and want to go directly to Angeles City, then I can recommend the private car hire offered by the Wild Orchid Resort. They will be waiting for you at the airport and take you directly to the condo. The cost is 2,700 pesos one way. You can make arrangements from their website. Also recommend that you have a phone number in case you can not locate the driver at the airport.
