A Sunday with Avida, Roaming Beyond Manila

Yes, the title rhymed. And so are the places we toured yesterday in Cavite, all being Avida properties.

Cavite has always been known for its rich historic culture. It is also an out-of-the-metro urban city very near prime business centers and its neighboring bustling cities inside Metro Manila. It's now a modern abode with a shade of a heroic past. It is the birthplace of the Republic of the Philippines, where the highlights of the 1896 Revolution took place.

When we left yesterday morning at about 7am, I came prepared with a travel pillow to accompany me in the trip which I estimated would take about two hours max.

I was quite surprised as it only took us only about 30 minutes after fetching a friend from Alabang Town Center. I mean, that was really fast; and accessible too! Although of course, it was a Sunday.

These residential developments are courtesy of Avida Land Corp.who envisioned a relaxing hideaway from the stressful hustle and bustle of the metropolis. Avida’s residential projects in Cavite are all located along the Molino-Paliparan Road which include Avida Residences Dasmariñas, Avida Settings Cavite, Avida Village Santa Cecilia and Avida Residences Santa Catalina.
Cavite has the perfect combination of carefree and cosmopolitan living. If you want a home in a peaceful yet progressive community, you can always find one in our Cavite residential projects,” says Tess Tatco, Marketing Head for Avida.
Alabang Settings Cavite

We first touched-based at Avida Settings in Cavite where American-inspired homes in light pastel colors of baby blue, mint green, and light pink greeted us virgin eyes. To be honest, they were so cute and looked like toy-houses from afar. But as we get near to it and saw it's interiors, it had a spacious layout and laid-back ambiance.

Avida Settings Cavite is a 57.5-hectare property that is beautifully landscaped with open spaces. This American-themed community also features sloping terrains and a courtyard system that encourages interaction among neighbors.  best of all, I love how grand and spacious their clubhouse is, not to mention the wide infinity pool.

Avida Towers Alabang

Going back to Manila, out last pitstop for the Ayala properties' tour was Avida Alabang. It was a residentila condominium which offered a variety of options from studio type rooms to 2-bedroom units.

I personally love the one-bedroom unit and how the model unit showed great interior and optimized space.

Avida Settings Cavite also launched yesterday (March 13, 2011) its second phase and grand amenity area at the project site. There was a mini-concert by celebrity-singer Myrus at the clubhouse and a sports clinic and also held.

It was a crazy and tiring Sunday, but viewing my future/dream homes in Avida Properties are a comforting eye-candy, nonetheless. :) And that made my busy Sunday with Avida; roaming beyond Manila.
