Cheap Apartments In Cebu

32 posts in this topic

I am totally ignorant about rentals in Cebu.

 

My wife went up to Cebu on Friday to apply at one of the call centers in Asiatown IT Park. She got hired at one of the big ones(their Financial Services Department) and will start her training on Tuesday. Whoopee! I get to be stay at home husband working on web development for my spending money.

 

So now all of a sudden, I'm in the market for a cheap apartment near Asiatown IT Park...(I would prefer to be further away and let her commute the 4 days a week so any ideas would be nice.)

 

Now the question, anyone got a line on any cheap apartments in the Cebu(preferably Mandaue/Lahug) area? I don't wanna pay an arm and leg for rent because if the rent is too high, I'll nix my wife's new job rather than pay a lot more rent.

 

Any help ASAP would be appreciated.

I'm always on the look out for a cheap apartment in Cebu because I'll also be needing one in January/February. Good luck.

My son's gf who also work at the IT park is also looking for one. Heard that price for a room with bathroom, no aircon is between P3,000 to P4,000 per month.

Right next to Country Mall is a brand new 'stack them high, keep them small, condo building. I drove past it this morning but cannot remember the name but it's impossible to miss.

I remember driving past there whilst it was under construction and noted a banner advertising the price; again I cannot remember what it was but do remember thinking 's***, that's cheap'.

Looks like all the rooms have bunk beds, so it's definately at the cheaper end of the market.

Additionaly also in Banilad and priced at 8,000 to P10,000 are some nice appartments very close to Jaguar KTV (Instantly after passing Jaguar on the right side you will see a very small dirt road, drive down and through a large set of metal gates in to a courtyard; here you will find about 20 newish appartments). The landlady is nice and the rooms pretty decent.

Hope this helps a little

The place next to Country Mall is called 'Alicia'

 

Thanks Cebuexpat, Alicia is a boarding house/dormitory like place. Either 1, 2 or 4 people per room. 12,000 per month if you want a single room....

 

Floors are seperated by sex.

I needed a two bedroom in cebu in time for the sinulog, preferably on the outerskirts of the city. So what's sinulog like these days? It's been almost 20 yrs that I haven't been to one. I'll be staying for a year. Thank You

It's VERY hard to seek an apartment that far out and expect it to be available then. I know of a really good deal in Talisay. But who will know if one will be available then?

Can you tell me more about those apartments? How many bedrooms? Where in Banilad is Jaguar KTV located?

 

Thanks.

My answer to that question is "yes often". So which floor is correct for me? :any-help:

      Ive tried looking on the web, but no luck so im asking you guys:
      Has anyone been to Kawasan falls over the last week? 
      Or at this time last year? maybe not as helpful..
      I'm planning on taking the missus, and her brother and his missus on Saturday
      Keen to know if anyone has any idea about the water situation at the moment?
      Here in Toledo its been very dry the last 2 weeks, (YAY i can get in and out of our village without driving under a river) but im not sure this matters at all when considering kawasan falls.
      I guess year on year stats are irrelevant also as weather here is so unpredictable and there are no yearly weather patterns.
      I havent been there in 2 years, and this will be my 4th trip. I never get tired of that place. I dont care how many people are there, its beautiful and should be shared.

      Remember!
      Foreigners living in the Philippines can get Philippines, also single with tourist visas.
      The requirement is that you are "permanent tourist", in other words that you live here . This can be proved by lease contracts and stamp in your passport.

      But when I signed up, I used only my passport and ID card from BI (ACR).
      This had to be copied and submit with my application (PhilHealth Member Registration Form).
      Then I paid for 6 months, 900 pesos.(150 per month now)
      Everything took about 40 minutes.

      Joker and Harley Quinn love nothing more than creating havoc for Batman. But when their alone… they turn into a couple… just like everyone else. Yeah, Joker and Harley might act all tough but they bicker. Oh they bicker.

      Im hoping this is the right subforum for this.
      I'm looking for feedback from those who have been here a while and are used to Cebuano people, particularly services like vehicle maintenance and home maintenance. Im starting to get very, and visually, frustrated with the brains in some of the locals, not just so called mechanics.
      A neighbour has seen that i am always testing electrical things with my multimeter in my jeep and on my brother in laws little motor. Today my GF said, to me, BABY THEY WANT TO USE YOUR TESTER!!!
      So i love to help, and i went over to the guys who were standing around the crappy RUSSI motor and they pointed at the ignition module. as if to say, TEST IT! Now, i have no idea how to test this, but i thought, rather than saying NO, i will check other things, like how many volts are going to it. 
      5 Volts. This is a 12 volt battery putting out 5 volts,, its fecked.
      So i said, BAGO BATTERY.. OR CHARGE.
      But then i asked them to turn the ignition on, and they pointed at the ignition wiring harness which had all been taped together, so that everything is constantly powered ON.
      This infuriates me with rage, as it is now so impossible to explain to them how incredibly stupid this is, as it is on a completely different level of stupidity than I've ever had to deal with, and my bodies internal fuse for dealing with things diplomatically, just exploded.
      I walked away. They are beyond assistance, at least with my Bisaya vocabulary.
      Now i think about it, they may possibly believe that if the motor isn't running (after being kickstarted) that it isn't using the battery.

      And my question is, am i justified in feeling so god damn angry that i cant have an intellectual conversation here?
      Or am i being a cockhead?
