Save half of the usual commuting time going to work or walk leisurely to your office. Play around with your kids in the pool. Jog alone or run around the paths with your pet. Sweat it out in the gym or relish a deep slumber in your unit after a fun-filled night with friends.
These are some of the comforts offered by condo living that have captivated the southern part of the Philippine archipelago.
Whether for young professionals, a start-up family or retirees, condominiums are increasingly becoming a housing option of choice in the flourishing City of Davao, further fueling the property boom in the area.
It is a trend that is seen to persist in the coming years as more residents are embracing vertical living as reflected by the occupants of DMCI Homes’ development along Ecoland Drive corner Peacock Street in Davao City—Verdon Parc.
The three-hectare development has posted robust sales with most of its eager buyers coming from Davao del Sur and neighboring provinces of North and South Cotabato.
After all, who wouldn’t want to live in a serviced resort-like community that is accessible to practically everything in Davao City?
Take the case of 32-year-old Davaoeña Melanie Belugulo who has learned to embrace the conveniences of modern living when her family moved to Verdon Parc in 2017.
Influenced by her Irish partner Brendan Daly, Belugulo shared condo living is very convenient for her growing family with the community being serviced by seasoned professionals who make up the Property Management Office.
“It’s convenient because of the services that are provided. Security is important and it’s good,” disclosed the young mother of fraternal twins Margaret and Charles adding: “The staff members are very professional, very nice and very helpful.”
Known for its trademark resort-inspired amenities, DMCI Homes designed Verdon Parc to complement Davao City’s abundant and pristine natural resources to create a haven of relaxation and comfort for residents.
Fitness facilities, swimming pools, entertainment and game rooms, play areas and leisure zones, are available to satisfy every whim.
Pointing out the charm brought by the development’s first-rate amenities and facilities, Daly who is a chartered accountant by profession, on the other hand, revealed: “It’s nice to have the amenities like the swimming pool. We do a lot of swimming. We take the twins around the garden and play area.”
“But what we really like about this property is the view of the coastline of Samal Island, which is what we really wanted,” he exclaimed in reference to their two-bedroom unit with balcony at Verdon Parc.
Indeed, whether in the city or in the provinces, condo living with all its glamour and comfort, has found its niche and is definitely here to stay.
