Klaus

Dec 2016

Jakes place is quiet and safe, complete and well maintained. Location is good, Busses, Jeeps, Ubers and grabs available 24/7. Some resto bars around, 7/11 at the gas station and a cash&carry 10 min walking distance. Jake responds very fast.

Host Response

Thank you very much again for staying, Klaus! And, for the compliments :) This is the 3rd year now that you’ve booked with us; it’s safe to say it’s becoming your home in Manila! I’m refurbishing the unit this month, there should be improvements in your (hopefully!) next stay. Cheerio

Oliver

Oct 2016

The apartment has some piece of furniture that seemed to have been found in the garbage, the old sofa in the living has hard wood hitting your bottom and back no matter what position you try to accommodate yourself. plus one leg is broken which makes the sofa total uneven. The wardrobe in the bedroom follow the same as the living room. No toilet papers. NO INTERNET, the people who clean the apartment, that apparently live 3 hours drive from the premises when contacted over the phone about the internet, they kept eluding us by telling us to restart the rooter and we eventually found out internet had been cut of by the company for lack of payment. on my last day since there were nobody around I tried to locate Jake the owner who was over in London england, when I reached by phone and introduced myself, he was upset and before I say anything he said he was busy cycling and angry that I had interuped him. 4 hours later I tried again just to find the same rudeness I had just experienced 4 hours before, therefore , people stay away from that place it is not worth a dime, in the photos the place looks great but it deceives you once you see it in person. Save yourselves disappointment by choosing another place. Jake must hate his business and must not like interacting with people , he is rude, rude, rude and rude, positively I have no questions about it. Oliver

Host Response

Again, as I genuinely said in the phone conversation, thank you for your feedback Oliver, I truly value my guests’ view, that’s how I can improve the unit and service. In fact, as already stated in the profile even before your booking (as a headine), I have plans to refurbish the property as I’m fully aware that it needs some refreshing, I acknowledge this. It’s just unfortunate that your stay happened before this grand updating, I can guarantee you now it will be way better that it is or has been! Please visit my profile again come January.
You have forgotten or chose to not to mention in the review though that despite the seeming shortcomings, particularly the internet connection that you claim you most needed, you were very willing to extend your stay for few more days. That, and demanded discounted rates. Aside from paying me directly, to avoid further fees from travelmob, benefiting you more.
Now, when you started being overly assertive on this, picking on littlest of things in the unit, started raising your voice over the phone, when calling me here in London was unnecessary as you can simply message me here or on email (therefore saving you money), but then you blamed me further with the overseas call on realizing I wasn’t willing anymore to extend your stay AND you were not getting the discount you hoped for AND avoiding the website fees by paying direct – it simply didn’t go your way.
The internet connection had few problems recently, I admit. This is being resolved by the technicians, to which I or my caretaker isn’t in control of. Immediately on learning this, we contacted you, but it happened on a weekend, the technical support of the provider is closed!
This is same with contacting my caretakers too, often they are somewhere in other cities (as they’re not on full time here) where the mobile connection is either poor or flaky, this we’re looking at too.
To claim that I was rude, I apologize, maybe I sounded loud, as I was cycling that time in the

This place is a dump....it looks nothing like these photos. Don't stay here.

Host Response

Very sorry to know how you felt about the property, Albert. Even if you decided to actually not stay there, you simply glanced over the unit and left. Then again, I can’t blame you, having stayed in 4/5 star hotels or more pricey listing here beforehand (as you said). It may be down to setting expectations. But if I were to refer to the numerous good or better reviews here (I’m expecting you’ve read some of them at least) and the general star rating, generally its great value for money and homely. Of course there’s always room for improvement, but to use the word ‘dump’ may be too much? I stay there myself on holidays every year! This listing won’t survive 4 years here if not for good custom from guests, some have even become regulars!

Hi jake!

Our vacation was excellent and the accommodations were perfect! We felt very "at home" and it was very peaceful and quite.. Thank you for letting us stay in your condo. We've stayed in several different condos in Makati area and yours was truly our favorite. It had everything we could have possibly wanted.,everything went exactly as planned...

Thanks once again for making this special place available. We will certainly be recommending your condo to our friends.

Joel& Yesha

Host Response

Very glad you enjoyed the stay, Joel & Yesha! I’m only assuming that the 2-stars you’ve given here was a slight slip-up, going by your review comments! Would appreciate you recommending us to all your friends, thanks again for staying.

Excellent location and everything needed to call home for 2 weeks. Having gas too cook on was a plus. The A/C units need some maintenance as one tended to shut off and the other was a bit noisy. Having a washing machine and vacuum was awesome, specially since i used vacuum enabled bags for packing, i was able to shrink everything back in my luggage. It was a pleasure to stay.

Host Response

Cheers Lior! We’re looking at replacing the A/Cs if it continues to be noisier and causing problems; it could be about time to change them, although we get them maintained quarterly. Hope the check in set up all worked out good!

Host Response

Cheers Cory! Only that you may have mistaken on choosing the appropriate number of stars as rating on the review here? ;)

Me, my boyfriend Vern and daughter Beatrice had a pleasant stay at Jake's place. The condo is within proximity to the main streets of Makati and a good walking distance to Makati malls and all other cool places in Makati area. The condo unit is not as what you expect from the pictures you see online so don't get excited about checking in. However the place overall is good - clean and quiet. The only negative feedback which i am quite vocal about is the FOUL ODOR in the building elevator. This is something that the tenants like Jake needs to address to the property management. Sorry Jake... just a feedback but we like your place.

Host Response

Thanks for the feedback Wilma, just not sure on what you meant by the pictures here in the profile and how it actually looks like – there might have been more improvements or furnishings, but they should almost be the same (or better)! The unpleasant odour in the lifts has been resolved too.
