Guest access

Best, most convenient location in Cebu City. 2 minute walk to Ayala Mall. Very close to 5 major hospitals. 1 minute walk to major jeep terminal. 100+ restaurants within 3 minutes walk. Short taxi ride or walk to downtown, SM Mabolo, and other popular destinations. 30 minutes to airport if no traffic. Building has ramp for wheelchairs, and wheelchair users can ride elevator to the condo and use the first floor of the condo. But there are steep stairs to the second floor that would be very difficult for a disabled person to ascend. This condo is in a very safe area, and it is safe to walk in the area at any time. A dependable, English-speaking personal assistant / guide / babysitter can be provided for 550 Pesos (US $11) per day (8 hours). 10 mins walk to main Sinulog parade route.

I have stayed in Pau's condo before. As usual it was great. Celine provides great maid service. Very clean. Great location near Ayala Mall. Communication was fast and easy. The building has a swimming pool and a small gym. Excellent place to stay.

We chose Paul's condo for our 2 week Cebu adventure and we're very glad we did. It's exactly as described: roomy, bright, well appointed and comfortable. Tall windows give a lovely airy feel, great view of downtown Cebu. We cooked a lot and the kitchen served us well. Quickly felt like 'home.' Note however that the stairs are quite steep and wouldn't suit less mobile travellers. We made the most of the lovely rooftop pool, and the building staff are very friendly. Brilliant location seconds from Ayala Center and Jeep station yet remarkably peaceful. Great base from which to explore Cebu City which is basically a smaller, less bonkers version of Manila. Paul's a genial host and Celine a charming and efficient manager. Would definitely stay again.

This was the second time we stayed at Paul's place, this time with our teen daughter. Paul's a fine host and his assistant is diligent in keeping the place running smoothly. My favorite thing about the condo is the view of downtown Cebu from both levels and from the balcony. Makes the place feel very open and spacious.

I came to Cebu with my parents for 4 days and we had a wonderful stay! Paul and Celine made our stay effortless and very comfortable. AC, wifi, showers and cable worked well. Two floors made for a lot of privacy and space, and the pool was unofficially open and Paul made sure we were able to access it as well as the gym he uses if we needed. The location was as close as you can get to the Ayala Mall which made finding a variety of food easy and shopping very accessible! The office staff that work in the building were also very helpful and convenient, they would hail cabs and let us know which jeepneys we needed to use to get to where we wanted to go. We would stay here again!
