Kath, 32, has lived in her family's house in Quezon City all her life. “I was born and raised in that home and it took some time for me to decide to finally move out,” she shared. In the Filipino society, it's customary for children to stay with their parents even through their adult years. This is especially true among unmarried adult children who are expected to look after their aging parents. “I finally decided to move out when I turned 28 and got a new job in Ortigas Center. The traffic and the cost of commuting convinced me to find a place of my own.”

Kath chose a studio unit at Flair Towers, a condo for lease in Mandaluyong. This resort-style condo is few minutes away from EDSA and Ortigas Center. You can even walk to major malls on cool Saturday afternoons. “The location is not the only reason why I chose this DMCI condo in Mandaluyong. There is a calm atmosphere everywhere that helps me cope with stress.”

Flair Towers features Lumiventt Technology, a design innovation that allows the natural flow of air and sunlight in all buildings and common areas. There are patios, packets of gardens and breezeways, as well as an open lawn for relaxation.

Jay and Demi initially planned to get a one-bedroom apartment in a subdivision for their small family. “A house in a guarded subdivision seemed like the sensible choice for our two young kids. We want them to make friends with neighbors, play outside, and enjoy their childhood the way we used to back in the day,” Jay said. However, the young parents are apprehensive about the current status of security in most subdivisions in the capital. “Well, there are guards and barangay officials roaming at night to ensure our safety, but we don't think it's enough. The streets are just not the same.”

With encouragement from family, Jay and Demi went for Dansalan Gardens. This DMCI condo in Mandaluyong City is equipped with a guarded main entrance, electric perimeter fence, and 24-hour security. There are surveillance cameras and fire alarms in all common areas. Moreover, every building has a standby power generator.

“The security system sealed the deal for me, but for my wife, it's the lifestyle amenities,” Jay recalled. Dansalan Gardens features a leisure pool, entertainment room, indoor playground, among others. Tenants need not leave the condo community for household essentials. There's a convenience store, laundry pick-up station, and water station. “It has everything our family needs.”

Rent a bare two-bedroom unit at Dansalan Gardens for a monthly rent of Php22,000 to Php25,000. If you need a semi-furnished home, a two-bedroom space is available for Php26,000 to Php27,000. Have everything you need in a fully-furnished unit for Php28,000 to Php30,000 per month.
