I'm Now a Legit Hostess (at Airbnb That Is)

7:43 AM 13 Comments A+ a-

The past couple of weeks is just too busy, if not stressful, yet fulfilling at the same time. Other than the roles I have to attend as a mother, I was also running errands for my parents who were about to migrate as well. Part of that is managing their unit at Shell Residences. So when they said that it's up to me how to handle the said property, the first thing I thought of is to sign up at Airbnb.

So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, I am now a legit hostess! I first thought of calling myself as an agent (for my parents) but a friend of mine comically mentioned "O di ayan, hostess ka na!" Knowing that such word in Filipino culture connotes something different, I first had a violent reaction. But I realized, that yes, I am now a hostess - catering to both foreign and local guests who would like to book for a cheap accommodation here in Manila.

LOCATION

What made me say yes to this condo rental racket is its location. Shell Residences is strategically situated at the Mall of Asia complex. From the infamous MOA, you just have to take the footbridge and cross the road to get to the lobby of Shell Residences. If coming from EDSA, you can easily see the huge SHELL signage at the right side, before you reach the huge Mall of Asia globe.



Other than the Mall of Asia and its establishments such as MOA Arena and SMX, this is also near the following places including:
  • Blue Bay Walk Macapagal - where you can find a wide array of food selections and coffee shops. This is a dog-friendly park filled with various activities to do especially from afternoon onwards.
  • Seaside Macapagal - where the freshest and most delectable Filipino seafood cuisines are
  • Solaire and City of Dreams - there are free shuttle buses located at the Mall of Asia to take you to these casinos with numerous indoor attractions as well.
AMENITIES

Of course, the selling point of RG Shell Residences (yes, that's what they want to call it) are the amenities that are provided when renting the unit. Let's start with the building first. Just by entering the lobby, you would feel like you're in a hotel. It's very spacious and with comfortable areas where you can wait for your guests or even have a small chitchat there as well.



My favorite part is the pool area. I get to enjoy this as much as my kids do. There are pools where I could just leave them and simply watch over because it's not deep enough for them to drown. Besides, since they frequently swim here, they were able to learn how to dive or stay in water without worrying me so much.








THE RG SHELL RESIDENCES UNIT

And here it is, the unit itself. Let's take a look at what I'm trying to offer at Airbnb guests and those who wanted to book with me directly (shameless plugging!)

Bedroom Area

Queen Sized Bed

The Kitchenette

Cozy Living Room

Dining Table




Of course, it also comes with toiletries, water heater for your coffee, shower heater, and a mini-bar. I wanted to make it feel like more of a hotel than an apartment. After all, most moms wanted to have that relaxing hotel experience without paying too much, right?

Contact Me!!!!

So if you want to have that staycation with your family or just escape the metro traffic when you want to attend a convention at PICC or SMX, then I, the Domesticated Mudra, would love to be your hostess. Check out my link at Airbnb or you can also check out the Facebook page I made for it. Currently, I set the price at Php2500 a night but of course, the longer you stay, the lower the price!

MOTHER'S DAY PROMO!!!!!

Mudras! Because I know how it feels that we, the ladies of the house, deserves to have some day offs, I'm lowering the rate for you if you would stay with your kids (max of 2) and 1 companion from May 2 to May 16. As a way of appreciating your hard work as well, I'm going to include a small token for all moms who will check in during the said dates. Mechanics are shown below:



So there you go! If you need to have a place to stay near Mall of Asia, the Domesticated Mudra now has a unit for rent and it's up and running. Contact me anytime through any of the following:

Thank you for sharing this sis, hay salamat pag uuwi yung sis inlaw ko di ako mahihirapan maghanap ng matulugan nila, heheh atleast this place mlaapit lang sa airport. Kasi everytime na umuuwi sila from U.S sa Taft Edsa ako naghahanap ng Hotel eh masyadong malayo sa airport.

I'm scared to try Airbnb because of the mixed reviews but I will take note of this. The rate is better than hotel. Good luck on your new business! :)
