Staying in Alcoves, a Vacation Apartment in Makati

Vacation apartment is now becoming a trend as a great alternative for hotel. This type of accommodation is where one rent out an apartment, house, villa or condominium on a short-term or temporary basis. Staying in such kind wasn’t new to me, I was able to stay twice or thrice the time when my relatives overseas went for a vacation and rented out a space to be their home while in Metro Manila.
Vacation apartments are typically fully furnished, a plus compared to other type of accommodations. They offer all you need in one. Staying in vacation apartment is like staying at home but provided with the amenities like in a hotel.

It was one weekend in August when I’ve got a chance to experience vacation apartment again through Alcoves. Alcoves is a group of vacation apartments situated in a variety of locations in Makati City. They have units in several condominiums in the area.

I asked some of my former colleagues to join me for a sleepover in one of the units that I booked in Alcoves. Alcoves 10 was our unit that weekend. It’s located in Greenbelt Parkplace, which is just a 5-minute walk from Greenbelt 5. Room rate per night is $150.
Although normally there’s isn’t a lobby or a reception area to greet guests upon their arrival when they stay in most vacation apartments. The great team of Alcoves provided me a detailed instruction on how to check in. The process was clear. But don’t worry because most of the time a member of the team from Alcoves is available to welcome you on site. Jade, one of the members of the team was on site that time and he pleasantly welcomed me to the unit. They are also available through phone call or text if you need assistance.

Seeing our booked accommodation when I entered the unit surprised me because of how well appointed the space was. The place was big, which was enough to fit our group.

The unit has three bedrooms, where two of which is at the loft. There are two queen beds, 1 double bed and a sofa bed. The unit has a fully equipped kitchen, which is complete with refrigerator, cooking range, plates, glasses, toaster-oven, pans and other kitchen facilities. Having those in our unit was completely perfect for our weekend stay because we didn’t have any plans of eating out.

Alcoves 10 had become our temporary abode for the weekend. We were all pleased with how agreeably nice the unit was. As planned, we didn’t get out of our room and just spent the entire weekend catching up. We spent the night bonding over movies, food and tequila. It was already dawn when we went to bed.
