Fortune Residences - Brand new, well priced

14 posts in this topic

After a couple months of on and off searching I've finally found a new apartment I'm really happy with.

 

As there are several more available I'd thought I'd post and share - just in case others may also be looking.

 

I'm just purely sharing info here (no other motive like commissions, or spams).

 

Apartment block is brand spanking new near Shopwise and McDonalds in Mambaling (nearby is Tisa and Labangon).

 

I found it on craigslist. There are 13 apartments left and 6 parking spaces.

 

If you're interested just roll up there and check it out. There's an on site manager w/ staff Mon-Sat.

 

Here's some details and pics:

Its a good price for that location but I am not seeing any holes for air conditioners.  Is it an easy install or do you need to cut your own hole?

They are unfurnished apartments.

 

Holes are there in the 2 bedrooms for window type units.

 

The main entrance area, which also has the kitchen has no window so no, no holes there.

 

Sorry no pics of bedrooms - these pics from the craigslist listing I copied.

I actually saw this advertisement online and I think it were the same apartments. I tried to go there with my bike but never arrived, couldn't find it, even with a Filipina on the back (but who didn't speak Cebuano).

One red flag I see is the demand up front for 4 months rent on a 12 month lease. Anyone else think that's out of line?

 

Newish appartment, farther away from the Cebu City core but good for someone who wants to be on the south side.

And the longer you stay, the more stuff you accumulate and have to carry around.  But if you like the place then no need to move.  It is an apartment building, not a house that someone is likely to sell out from under you.

Not being a city dweller I fail to comprehend how you could squeeze two bedrooms and a bathroom into a 40 sqm space.

 

That's a recipe for insanity.

I can't really tell by the photos, is the window over the kitchen sink opening to a hall? A few other pics show windows opening to interior areas, evidently. I'm guessing more for egress than anything else. Is there really a building code here? I'd like to have a look at that thing!

      Very strangely this is not being reported anywhere in the mainstream news. Last nights (Sat) 7.50 from Ormoc to Cebu collided with another vessel not too far from the port of Cebu. Wife's parents were passengers. MIL texted us at home around 9.30pm that they had just hit another vessel while still out at sea. Sadly the collision was at full cruising speed and apparently "rear ended" another vessel, a barge or similiar sized vessel. Almost all of the passengers which appeared to be not numerous, sustained some injuries, but no deaths. The response of 2Go is being slammed by all aboard, with not telling the passengers any updates, to not giving out where berthed info to making the walking injured walk to waiting relatives outside the port. A large proportion of the passengers were asleep at the time of the collision and have sustained injuries consistent from being thrown from a seat, cuts, abrasions, missing teeth, severe bruising etc. It has been said that the 2Go vessel rode up and onto the other vessel. Quick thinking crew on the other vessel tied the two together to prevent the 2Go cat from becoming adrift or possible sinking.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace

      Is this normal in the Philippines ? Is this wacko or am I living in an altered state ? My long term girlfriend is getting ready to sign a contract for an unbuilt half of duplex of 26 sq. meters for half a million p. in a small city in Mindanao. Nice fight ensued on Valentines Day. I have visited but will not be moving there for a year and have no idea about buiding costs in the area. This seems way off the chain to me, but what do I know? Any knowlegeable input would be appreciated.

      A friend has an Iphone 5 and it needs a screen, can anyone recommend a reasonable and reliable place to have it done? I may bring it with me to get it fixed for him if it can be done for a reasonable amount
