You need to know that the Philippines experiences a lot of earthquakes, volcanic explosions, and typhoons. This means you must make sure the place you choose to stay is strengthened to withstand these natural disasters. If you don’t think there is a serious danger… you should read what Wikipedia has to say about seismic disturbances in the Philippines (LINK). You should also read what a major national newspaper writes about the danger (LINK).
There are lots of other important things you need to know before you book a place in the Dumaguete area. Hopefully, by reading this long web page you will get a much better understanding of the local rental market. And please forgive me while I brag a little about Dumaguete Furnished Apartments For Rent.
FOR EIGHT STRAIGHT YEARS IN A ROW, DUMAGUETE FURNISHED APARTMENTS FOR RENT WITH POOL, 52 INCH SONY SMART TVs, FREE MOTORBIKE, AND 100,000 MBPS FIBER-OPTIC INTERNET HAS BEEN RATED THE #1 BEST APARTMENTS IN DUMAGUETE!
The reason is simple: Ninety-eight percent of our previous tenants gave us 5-stars on both Google and TripAdvisor. We get such high ratings because: (1) Our security is the utmost, (2) As shown in the top picture above, we are so clean you can eat off our roof, (3) Our big beautiful swimming pool is also the cleanest and most sparkling in Dumaguete, (4) Our apartments are fully furnished with everything you need including Microwave Oven, Pots and Pans, two-burner gas stove, linens, pillows, towels, drapes, dishes, big hot water shower, air conditioning with a special air filtering system, and much more (5) Our Internet speed is 100,000 MBPS and downloads movies fast. (6) We do not rent to drunks, drug addicts, and mental misfits. A few beers are okay. Just keep in mind that we are highly selective because we want to make sure that the neighbors on each side of your apartment will be respectable, easy-going, level-headed, upper-class people. Living next door to the nice friendly neighbors makes your vacation so pleasant. On the other hand, living next door to a loud-mouth drunk will turn your vacation into a horror story. Nice neighbors are especially important in the Philippines because this country attracts all sorts of misfits (explained below).
Our main building where you will stay is Typhoon-Proof, Flood-Proof, Fire-Proof, Earthquake-Proof, Burglar-Proof, and Lightning-Proof.
Our rent is $200 per week including free 100,000 MBPS internet, 52 inch Sony Smart TVs, fully furnished along with a free Honda motorbike plus lots more. We also our best advice on finding a cheaper place to stay. Our owner, a retired sea captain has study seismology and weather prediction for over 50 years and has a lot of experience with Mother Nature’s violent acts.
Our monthly rent is $600 including free 100,000 MBPS internet, 52 inch Sony Smart TVs, fully furnished along with a free Honda motorbike plus lots more. Book three months and get a free Yamaha Super-Bike like the one above. Stay longer and we will continue to furnish the free Yamaha super-bike that rents downtown for ~$200 per month. If you like exploring on a great motorcycle, this free deal is the same as a $200 discount on your long-term rent. In other words, comparing our free motorbike deal with a cheaper rental, you must consider this free $200 discount.
IS OUR RENT TOO HIGH?
Many people searching for apartments have told us we charge too much. But these comments were made without considering our beautiful pool, 100,000 MBPS internet, 52 inch Sony Smart TVs, our extreme security, free motorbike, and our spotlessly clean compound. They say there are much cheaper places on YouTube (LINK). It’s true, YoyTube list more than 100,000 dirt-cheap apartments.
YouTube pays a peso or two per click to anyone that makes these videos. Cheap, Cheap, and Cheaper is the #1 draw-card in Asia, especially in the Philippines. The video makers know the word “cheap” draws a lot of hits so they go around filming cheap places. But the camera never reveals the real picture. You need boots on the ground and good advice before you rent a cheap place to live in Dumaguete. We can offer this advice as a free service. Book a week with us for $200 and we will furnish you with a free motorbike and help you find a cheap fairly safe place to stay. And don’t think you know it all. You don’t know the flood paths. You don’t know the location of the seismic faults. And more importantly, you don’t know how to spot poor Filipino construction tactics. You also need to know about the problems living with local Filipinos.
We’ve been in the rental and lending business in the Dumaguete area for over 20 years. Everything we now know came the hard way. It is amazing how fast you learn after you’ve been scammed several times. Our nightmare real estate experience can help you a lot. And best of all, we offer our advice for free.
But we don’t compete in the cheapo market. We are the NUMBER ONE apartment complex is Dumaguete. We serve a better grade of tenants that enjoys a nice, clean, super-safe, comfortable place to vacation.
WHY ARE THERE SO MANY CHEAP APARTMENTS
IN THE PHILIPPINES?
Because most of the tourists coming to the Philippines are on a tight budget. This is why the word CHEAP attracts the most hits and makes the CHEAPO RENTAL MARKET much more competitive. In fact, competition for cheap rentals is so extreme that slumlords can not make a profit unless they cut corners and build the cheapest apartments possible. Many just buy a dilapidated old building and throw on a coat of paint. When they do build new, they use lite weight steel bars in the columns and beams and add too much sand that weakens their cement mix. Building inspectors rarely visit these construction projects and when they do, it is usually to pick a nice tip for not inspecting the site. This brings up the following question:
ARE CHEAPO APARTMENTS SAFE?
The Philippines is situated along the volcanic-earthquake-prone Pacific Ring of Fire. In fact, downtown Dumaguete City sits right on top of a blind reverse fault that could rupture any day now and destroy most of the downtown area. Whatever you do, don’t stay downtown.
Search Google using “Dumaguete and earthquake” and you will get close to 72,100 hits in 0.49 seconds. The Philippines is also prone to destructive typhoons due to its geographical location. These storms generally produce heavy rains and flooding of large areas along with strong winds resulting in heavy casualties to humans living in poorly constructed buildings.
Dumaguete Furnished Apartments For Rent With Pool was fully prepared in 2011 when typhoon Sendong hit Dumaguete. Our entire compound was built specifically to withstand the worst Mother Nature has to offer! As mentioned above, our compound is Typhoon-Proof, Flood-Proof, Fire-Prove, Earthquake-Proof, Burglar-Proof, and Lightning-Proof.
Here’s a second video that will tear your heart out. Dumaguete Furnished Apartments With Pool For Rent endured this typhoon with zero damage. Even though there were 8 inches of water flooding down our frontage road, there was no standing water inside our compound because we had installed an underground flood control system that diverted all the water into the main drainage canal. Dumaguete Furnished Apartments For Rent With Pool is the only apartment complex in Dumaguete ready for the worst Mother Nature has to offer. Stay with us and be safe! Chose cheap and you might be okay??? Just be aware that you gambling with your own life to rent cheap in the Philippines.
Rest assured, slumlords in the Philippines will not tell you that 75% of Earth’s volcanoes are located along the Pacific Ring of Fire. Nor will they tell you that 90% of all the earthquakes on Planet Earth (9 out of every ten) occur along this Ring of Fire, including the planet’s most violent and dramatic seismic events. Slumlords must gamble with Mother Nature if they are going to make a profit. They know the truth, but they will never talk about what might happen if an earthquake strikes nearby. And they don’t care about the character or class of their tenants. They could care less if the tenant is a raving drunk, drug addict, or psychiatric misfit. To a slum landlord, a tenant is just money. Bottom line is that if you rent a cheapo place from a slumlord, you have no idea the behavior of your neighbors and no idea what might happen during a natural disaster so common in the Philippines.
WE TOOK THE HIGH ROAD AT DUMAGUETE FURNISHED APARTMENTS FOR RENT
Our apartment building was designed to withstand anything and everything Mother Nature could throw at. Construction cost was over $500,000 US Dollars in 2009. It would cost almost a million US dollars to build today.
Why did we build such an indestructible building? Because there is a great need for seismic safety. Don’t believe me… just read what Wikipedia has to say about earthquakes in the Philippines at this (LINK). Lots of our previous tenants return every year or two because they know they are safe here. If this pattern continues, we will not need to advertise to get the best tenants.
If you choose to book with us you will be living in the safest most secure building in Dumaguete. And you will also be living next door to the nicest most-friendly neighbors and that’s guaranteed!
OUR FREE MOTORBIKE DEAL
As mentioned above, our monthly rate is $600 or the equivalent in other currencies. Our weekly rate is $200. These amounts are due after you inspect and approve your unit. These rates also include a FREE HONDA MOTORBIKE that rents downtown for about $150 per month. We pay to repair all mechanical problems but you pay to fix any damage if you wreck. You also pay for flat tires and damage done to the tires if you run on a flat. You will also be required to post your passport or a $500 cash deposit. Honda’s are cheap to repair. It’s mostly just the plastic parts that get damaged. We also have a fleet of very exciting motorbikes and will make you a special deal on upgrading to one of our big Yamaha Sports Bikes or to our big Yamaha X-Max Cruiser.
BOOKING ONE WEEK FOR $200
If you’ve never stayed here before, you don’t know if you will like us or not. But you will know after a week’s stay. If you want to extend, you can book three more weeks for $400 US or equivalent and keep driving your free Honda. Or Book 2 weeks for $400 and stay two more weeks for only $200. But you need to keep us updated on your plans just so we don’t get confused and book someone else in your slot.
Some say our security is overdone. I disagree. The level of security is not perfect until the thieves check you out and just walk away. That’s what’s happening now at Dumaguete Furnished Apartments For Rent with Pool. The thieves take a look at the 220-volt bare wire circling our 16-foot wall and then go looking for a less secure place to rob.
It is very important in the Philippines that a foreigner with valuables such as a camera, cell phone, computer, and some cash lives in a safe/secure place! It’s not so much that you might lose your valuable. The real issue is that you could lose your life if you jump up when a cat burglar is already inside your premises. If it ever happens to you, just pretend to be sound asleep. These guys carry long knives and will cut you if you put up a fight.
We also live inside the Dumaguete Apartments For Rent compound so you can be sure our security is the very best in Dumaguete. Read Here so you will know why extreme security is so important to you.
Another reason to stay here is that you will be COVID-19 safe with us. We know more about preventing COVID-19 than most doctors. Our research started in early January 2020. On 7 Feb 2020, we published “AVOID COVID-19″ on Linkedin (LINK). In this article, we reveal lots of ways to stay healthy during this pandemic.
No Lease Required
Dumaguete Furnished Apartments For Rent With Pool does not require a lease. No lease is a benefit because if you want to move to a different island, or need to go home for an emergency, you are free to go. Besides leases do not hold friends together. Leases often make enemies.
There are at least 20 off-road, back-country walking/jogging trails just outside our gate. These trails have no traffic, no road noise, and no smelly exhaust. About 5 minutes away by motorbike, you will also find walking/jogging trails that run-up and down the mountain. Walking or jogging these steep mountain trails is the best workout you’ll ever get.
And if you like nature, riding your big Yamaha Cruiser through the mountains just above us is a pure delight. The air is clean and the mountains are downright gorgeous. Warning… the mountain trails are habit-forming. You will certainly forget all your problems and will more likely lose a few extra pounds. The owner has lost over 60 pounds walking up and down the mountain trails.
WHERE TO STAY IF YOU’VE NEVER BEEN IN DUMAGUETE CITY?
Don’t worry about it. Book a one week with Dumaguete Furnished Apartments with Pool and 100,000 MBPS INTERNET for $200 US dollars. Travel around on the free Honda motorbike we furnish and see if you can find a place you like better. If so, book it and move out. If you really like it here, verbally agree for a longer stay, even a year if you like. We will make a special money deal for a longer stay based on how well you get along with everyone in the compound.
Keep in mind, happy tenants make happy neighbors that in turn cause other tenants to extend their stay and to return more often. In other words, happy tenants make more happy tenants that return often making our place a happy place.
If our one-week special helps find you a place you like better, we will ask only one favor: Give us a 5-star rating on Google and TripAdvisor for the week you stayed here. And also be aware that if you make a mistake, you can always come back here.
To read TripAdvisor reviews, you must scroll down the page past some advertising until you come to our review pages.
IS DUMAGUETE COVID-19 SAFE?
On June 25, 2020, Dumaguete City reports ZERO COVID-19 CASES. But as far as we know, extensive testing has not been down so we can’t be sure how many symptom-free carriers there are in the area. But you will still need to wear a face mask and practice social distancing when outside of your apartment.

INSTEAD OF PAYING FOR AN EXPENSIVE HOTEL, BOOK A FULLY FURNISHED APARTMENT WITH POOL.
Most better hotels charge about $30 per night. They offer a single room with a small TV and a small refrigerator. And they want to charge your credit card in advance. But you can BOOK a week with Dumaguete Apartments For Rent With Pool and get a free motorbike, a fully equipped kitchen, 52-inch Sony Smart TV, 100,000 MBPS fiber Optic Internet, a big gorgeous swimming pool, and a huge American shower for only $20 per night on a monthly basis.
The above is especially important now that COVID-19 has arrived. Can you imagine living next door to a drunk/drug addict that hangs out with prostitutes in the local bars downtown? Since my tenants and my family live here, there is no way we will take a chance with a person that loves to party in the local bars! In the eight years that we’ve been renting apartments, we turned completely against those that drink alcohol in excess, or use drugs.
Our outside kitchen is under the roof and it prevents cooking smells and smoke from entering your apartment. We also have an inside kitchen (see below) for preparing food prior to cooking!
Our pool is open 24 hours. We designed it to be a lap pool for exercising. Here’s how it works: When the pump is running, the water circulates rapidly in a clockwise direction. Swim laps with the flow if you are tired. Swim laps against the flow if you really want a great workout.
