About Drew Donovan-Mendoza

Originally from the UK, I came on holiday to the Philippine 8 years ago and fell so in love with the country and it's people that I never went home. Now working as the Business Director for the country's leading chain of aesthetics clinic, I manage a network of 40 locations and 800 staff - Professional, Customer Centric and Well Mannered, I can assure you that I will do what I can to make your vacation as comfortable as I can.

Drew Donovan-Mendoza purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Drew Donovan-Mendoza chose Mandaluyong

If you're looking to truly see the Metro, you can't beat seeing it from high above the craziness on the 50th floor balcony this well placed condo. A view way beyond where you are staying, coupled with a great living space and all the facilities you will need to chillax, making this penthouse not only the most impressive but at a price that will not be matched anywhere else.

What makes this apartment unique

The view will blow your mind and the facilities will deliver a relaxing experience in the heart of Manila's chaos. A mall at the base of the development makes it the most convenient, relaxing option for your vacation.

Drew and the property are amazing!

  • 5 of 5

You will not find a better person to work with than Drew. I knew I could count on him for anything! The property was very clean. The 50th floor is the top floor and you will never tire of the view! Nice to have the MRT right across the street. There is a market and ATM just on the bottom level. Pools were clean. Gym had nice equipment. I was VERY pleased with the condo. Definitely recommend this condo and definitely recommend working with Drew. Thank you, Drew, for being so personable and helpful and professional in every way. Wonderful stay!!!!!

Meticulously maintained, clean, and secure

  • 5 of 5

The 50th floor view is awesome overlooking Manila and Makati pictures really don't do justice. Drew the owner puts all the ice cream on the cake. What a superb owner/host. From answering questions before you arrive to picking you up at the airport should you desire and getting you back again. And making sure you are familiar with the condo and surroundings once you arrive and even check ups with you during the stay to make sure all is o.k. or if there is anything you need or questions etc... What a great comfortable place to stay at a such a reasonable price. Thanks again Drew!

Unforgetable Experience Living on the 50th Floor!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! this is

My first time to stay on the 50th floor, at first when i think

Of it i feel its scary, But then when i go out the terrace of the unit, OMG, so amazing and this is the first time i saw Manila overlooking and realize that our country is really beautiful..... So relaxing to look at even on day and nyt time. The place is in the heart of manila , so accesible to many

Places where u wanted to go,.But

Most of it, the owner, the manager of the unit Drew Donovan Mendoza, is a great person , the best among ive ever met. A down to earth man , approachable, good service and always updating me about everything, and one thing he will trust you right away without any

hesitant. Thank you so much Drew for our fantastic and unforgetable experience for staying in your penthouse. I know, i will always wanted to go back in your place... Keep it up Drew and i will highly recommend your place to my friends, relatives and guests..Thank you too for treating me as your good friend.

Manila vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was my 3rd visit to Manila but my 1st visit to this condo, and I wish I knew about this place from the begining. This condo is excellent! You can't beat the view, the place was clean and friendly staff. Its on the 50th floor, next to a mall. Comes with utensels, water futon for guests, iron/board, hot water, cable tv, wi-fi, gym, pool and a balcony. Drew will get you all that you need and is always available. This is a home away from home. I will stay here again on my next visit to Manila. Thanks Drew!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Keon for taking such care of the place! And you're right, the unit is a big improvement on hotels as you have more space, better facilities, greater privacy and of course the personal touch from a local host who is motivated to ensure your stay is comfortable, enjoyable and restful. With the condo being so convenient for shopping and entertainment, as well as with it's fantastic accessibility to the rest of the Metro, I look forward to welcoming you back on your next trip to Manila.
