WHAT GOOD SEES FROM ABOVE

DUMAGUETE STUDIO APARTMENTS FULLY FURNISHED WITH POOL AND FREE MOTORBIKE

For 12 years in a row, both TripAdvisor and Google have rated Dumaguete Studio Apartments fully furnished with pool and free motorbike as the NUMBER ONE apartment complex in Dumaguete and the surrounding area. The reason is simple… we pamper our tenants. If they want something, we get it for them.

For example, our tenants said they could not download movies from Netflix fast enough. To keep them happy we installed new wall-mounted wi-fi connected 52″ Sony Smart TVs. These TVs quickly download all the movie channels including YouTube.

OUR POOL WILL TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY

They still complained because everyone was downloading movies making the Internet connection slow. To fix the problem we install Fiber Optic Internet at 100,000 Mbps and now they are all smiling again.

We also accept direct walk-in deposits to the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) and to our US Wells Fargo Bank. Just email dsapoolside@gmail.com and ask for instruction.

SEND MONEY FROM EUROPE

The link takes you to our invite page transferwise.com/u/davidw7 and gives you instructions. You can send $200 US Dollars or 10,000 Philippines pesos. The dollars go to our US Bank (Wells Fargo) and the Pesos go to the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI Bank). We prefer US dollars to Wells Fargo because they send immediate notice of arrival.

We do not accept credit cards. The fees in Asia are just too high.

KEEPING YOU SAFE AND HAPPY

As the NUMBER ONE top-rated apartments in Dumaguete, we make sure that you are SAFE and living in a peaceful environment. To make sure it stays peaceful we do not accept drunks, drug addicts, or those suffering from psychiatric disorders.  A few beers or a glass of wine is okay. But get drunk, drugged-up, or start barking at the moon and we will call the police have you remove. In other words, do not even think of trying to rent here if you are a drunk, drug attic or a wacko taking psychiatric drugs. We reserve our apartments for sane intelligent people with pleasant personalities. (book now)

WHY SO SELECTIVE? 

Thousands of YouTube videos promote the Philippines as one of the cheapest places to live in the world. Living cheap attracts many stressed-out neurotics, alcoholics, drug attics, and mental misfits. The problem is that one day they are calm and the next day they are psychotic and ready to argue and fight. Some get really scary!

If we don’t carefully screen troublemakers, Dumaguete Studio Apartments Fully Furnished with pool and free motorbike would soon become just another cheapo dump. Said differently, because this is our home too, we make damn sure it is a beautiful safe happy friendly place to live by accepting only pleasant level-headed, drug-free, sober guests with nice personalities. We know by experience that if we allow drunks to move in, the next week we are breaking up arguments and dealing with nutty problems. (book now)

TWENTY YEARS IN THE PHILIPPINES HAS TAUGHT US A LOT!

The number one criteria for living happily anywhere in the world is having good neighbors of equal caliber! Even Filipinos make terrible neighbors for quite foreigners. Filipinos live a different lifestyle. They have fun beating on drums. They love singalongs and karaoke and play loud music all day and many times all night. Filipinos also keep a yard full of barking dogs and crowing roosters, they burn trash and let the smoke drift your way. And they throw rocks on your tin roof when you complain! Or, they walk by your gate and give an evil stare to let you know you are not welcome. Foreigners that live here for a long time eventually grow accustomed to this lifestyle. But it is almost impossible to deal with for the first four or five years.

LET’S TALK SECURITY

There are lots of sick drug attics in the Philippines that need their daily fix of methamphetamine (known locally as shabu). But they don’t rob the poor. Rather they look for foreigners with cash, computers, and jewelry. They want items they can quickly pawn at anyone of ~50 pawn shops in the area. The number of pawnshops triples where the drug attics live. 

Drug attics are expert cat burglars. They are usually skinny, light on their feet and can climb a 60-foot talk coconut trees barefooted. They have tools to pick door locks and usually carry sharp knives to defend themselves if a victim wakes up tries to stop them. Remember this, if you wake up at night and hear someone creeping around the room just pretend you are asleep. It’s better to lose a laptop than your life. 

Dumaguete Studio Apartments Fully Furnished With Pool has its own particular harsh methods of dealing with thieves and the drug attics know it. For example, look along the very top of our 16-foot security wall. You will see the black insulators that support a live 220-volt bare wire. The wire is deadly to birds. It is only deadly if the thief touches one of the many barbwire strands that are ground to the steel inside the columns. If he cuts the wire it sets off a burglar alarm that will wake the dead.  

THERE IS MORE!

We even have CTC cameras and other security tools deadly to burglars which must remain unpublished. We are the most secure apartment complex in the Philippines. The point is… no one breaks in Dumaguete Studio Apartments fully furnished with pool and free motorbike and lives to tell the story. YOUR SECURITY IS OUR MAIN CONCERN! You will not find this extreme security anywhere else in Dumaguete!

BE CAREFUL WHO YOU LISTEN TOO

There are lots of foreigners that say there is no security issue in the Philippines. But these are the ones with little money to steal. In other words, if you walk around looking like a worthless bum, your safe in the Philippines. But keep in mind, if the drug attic “thinks” you got valuables and you are in the wrong place at the wrong time, you become a target.  (book now)

TRY US OUT

Book 8-nights for $200 US dollars (~1,040 pesos per night) and we furnish you a free motorbike. 

Motorbikes rent downtown for ~400 pesos ($8) per 8-hour-day ($64 per week). This means if you want to rent a motorbike, then staying at Dumaguete Studio Apartments fully furnished with pool and free motorbike will only cost you $136.00 (884 pesos per night). To beat this deal you will need to stay in a downtown flophouse and sleep with the bed bugs! 

And if you have experienced riding a bigger bike, we can upgrade you to a new Yamaha SR Cruiser. Nothing like riding a big Yamaha! But be forewarned, this Yamaha is habit-forming. (book now)

OUR FREE MOTORBIKES ARE THE KEY TO YOUR SAVINGS!

Suppose you want to stay in Dumaguete for a longer period and want to rent a motorbike while you are here. The motorbike will cost you $256.00 per month (~13,000 pesos). And then you must add the cost of your apartment or hotel which will cost you at least $300 more per month (15,300 pesos). And this $300 apartment comes without a beautiful pool,100,000 Mbps internet, and a new Sony Smart TVs to download movies. In other words, your monthly cost will be $556.00 (28,356 pesos) and you get none of the extras that we give you for free.

On the other hand, if you rent from Dumaguete Studio Apartments fully furnished with pool & free motorbike with warp speed fiber-optic internet, Sony Smart TVs with Netflix, and the best security in the Philippines you will pay only $600 per month (30,600 pesos) for everything. And you will be staying at the NUMBER ONE RATED apartment complex in Dumaguete for only $44 (2, 244 pesos) more than a cheap alternative. The free motorcycle makes the deal!

HERE’S ANOTHER POINT

If you are going to rent a motorbike anyway, our free motorbike drops the cost of an 8-night stay with us to only 840 pesos per night! Want to stay 3 to 6 months or maybe a year? If so, stay with us for a month and let’s make sure we are both happy with each other and we will make a special deal on a long-term stay that will make you smile! (book now)

HERE IS ANOTHER COMPARISON!

If you are gonna rent a motorbike to ride around town, by getting our free motorbike, you will be renting a luxury #1 TOP-RATED apartment with a gorgeous swimming pool for only 18,720 pesos per month.  You can not beat this deal! And to make this offer even better, you get free fiber-optic Internet that will speed you around the globe at 100,000 Mbps. On top of all this, our warp-speed Internet easily hooks up to our new Wi-Fi connected 52″ SONY SMART TVs for downloading movies from all your favorite movie channels.

We also furnish the latest Sony 52″ Smart TVs. And we can upgrade the motorbike to a brand new big Yamaha. (book now)

COMPARE LOCAL HOTEL RATES

Most clean hotels downtown charge ~$38 US Dollars (2,000 pesos) per night for a small room without cooking facilities, without a free motorbike, without a fabulous pool, and without our 100,000 Mbps fiber-optic Internet connection and 52″ Sony Smart TV. In other words, Dumaguete Studio Apartments With Pool is much cheaper and you still get a large fully furnished studio apartment where you can cook your own food and live like a KING.

WE ARE THE BEST AND HAVE BEEN FOR 12 YEARS

Praise from our previous tenants made us the #1 top-rated luxury apartment complex in Dumaguete City and we are still less expensive than the best downtown hotel deals by $21 per night and you get all the comforts of a luxurious fully furnished studio apartment PLUS A GORGEOUS SWIMMING POOL AND A FREE MOTORBIKE!

Take us up on this deal (Book Now). 

BOOK ONE MONTH OR TWO OR THREE

HANGING AROUND THE POOL
RELAXING AT POOLSIDE

Our seasonal rate per month at Dumaguete Studio Apartments With Pool and Free Motorbike is $600 (each month counts as 30 days). When you consider the free motorbike, you are paying only $13.33 (693 pesos) per day to stay at our luxury apartments. Shop around! Slum landlords do offer CHEAPO PLACES that beat our deal. But there is no security, no pool, no free fiber-optic Internet, no free wall-mounted 52″ Sony Smart TV, no air conditioning, only a tiny refrigerator, and no repairs if things break down.  And most have cheap bamboo beds with 2″ foam mattress that will pain your back. And they also want you to sign a long-term lease!

BUT INSTEAD OF LEASE, WE OFFER A 100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

If you don’t think our price is fair after you inspect Dumaguete Studio Apartments With Pool, then we will gladly refund your deposit because the last thing we want is an unhappy tenant! If we made our tenants unhappy… we would not be number one for 12 years running!

BUT WE ARE NUMBER ONE AND HAVE BEEN FOR 12 YEARS!

AND CONSIDER THIS!

You can move out anytime and we will refund your security deposit minus any damage and utility bills. But we will not refund unused rent unless you give us a 15 to 30 notice of your move out date. The best way to handle it is to let us know that you are looking around so we can also start looking for your replacement. In other words, you are only agreeing to a short-term deal based on a handshake and not on a long-term contract that might last 6 months or even a year. You are even welcome to use our free motorbike to shop around for an apartment or house anywhere with 25 km from downtown Dumaguete City.

TRAVEL ALL OVER THE PHILIPPINES

Take a cheap air-conditioned bus if you want to explore other islands or distant places. Use us as your home base instead of an expensive hotel. The point is that when you stay with us you are NOT making a huge decision that you might regret later. So what if we charge a few hundred pesos more than slum apartments with zero security? Deduct the cost of renting a motorbike and you instantly see that we are less expensive than the slum landlords.

WE ARE YOUR BEST CHOICE BOTH LONG AND SHORT TERM

WHATEVER YOU DO, NEVER RENT A CHEAP APARTMENT IN THE PHILIPPINES SIGHT UNSEEN!

And don’t forget, in-person inspection is the only way to select a rental unit in the Philippines unless you get the same 100% money-back guarantee that we give you! But you will never get your money back from a slum landlord!

Never forget, you need boots on the ground before you book a cheapo apartment. Some are livable, but most have cockroaches, rats, trash, thieves, drug attics, alcoholics, crowing roosters, a hundred barking dogs, and a few foreign misfits from hell. This makes renting sight unseen a really stupid idea.

MINIMUM STAY

Our minimum stay is 8 nights. Our average tenant stays for two months. Some stay for a year or more. Most come back every year. How long you stay all boils down to how happy you are while you are here.  (book now)

MONEY!

We take US Dollars, Pesos. Pounds, and Euros but we price in US Dollars because most of our tenants are US Citizens. We base the conversion rate for each currency on the official exchange rate listed on the Internet at the time the money changes hands.

The dollars go to our US Bank (Wells Fargo) and the Pesos go to the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI Bank). We prefer US dollars to Wells Fargo because they send immediate notice of arrival.

We do not accept credit cards. The fees in Asia are just too high.

THE COST FOR UTILITIES

Dumaguete Studio Apartments with Pool and Free Motorbike does not charge for cable TV or for our 100,000 Mbps fiber-optic Internet. But we do charge separately for electricity, cooking gas, and water because these three utilities are under your control.

Each apartment has its own meters and you can read them anytime and keep track of your utility expenses. We do not mark up utilities. You pay exactly what the utility supplier charges! The average cost is about $1.60 per day. If you go easy on the air-conditioning, your bill will be cheaper.

THERE ARE NO HIDDEN CHARGES

But you are responsible for accidental damages to the apartment and to the free motorbike. Mechanical repairs for the bike are our responsibility. Flat tires are your responsibility. Ride on a flat tire and you must buy a new one. If you have a break-down or a flat just call us for help. 

We also have back-up air conditioners, microwave ovens, and gas stoves. Our maintenance man can switch these appliances out in less than 30 minutes. He can do most repairs in an hour!

SECURITY DEPOSIT

Our free motorbikes are in excellent condition. The big bike Yamaha 150 CruIsers are brand new. We pay for all mechanical repairs. But you pay to repair the motorbike if you wreck it. You also pay to repair flat tires. Honda’s are cheap to fix, but we still need a $500 refundable deposit or your passport as a security. If you do not use the motorbike, the refundable deposit is only $200.

FREE MOTORBIKES ARE AN ADVERTISING INCENTIVE

If you have your own motorbike, there is no reduction in rent. If you can’t drive a motorbike, one of our employees will teach you for a tip. And, for your own safety, you must practice riding 3-4 days in the big field a few blocks away before we will allow you to drive on the main roads. You will also need to furnish your own helmet or you can use one of our older helmets for free. Helmets cost less than $10 downtown.

HOW TO GET HERE FROM THE SMOKE FILLED CITY

It’s on the west side of building #2 (looking up towards the tall volcanic mountain). Ask for the terminal to Candau-ay. It’s easy to catch public transportation to and from the farmer’s market, where you can buy fresh meat and vegetables. Or, just ride your free motorbike anywhere you want to go.
