Cebu Philippine vacation apartment rentals and hotel alternatives
While hotels are the norm for most travelers, for long trips to cities or vacation destinations like Cebu in the Philippines many are looking for alternatives to save money. Hotels can give off that unfriendly, stiff feeling, particularly for the regular long-haul travelers. For this reason, Condo-Hotels are becoming more and more popular with short or medium stay guests
These Cebu Condo-Hotel short-term apartments present self-sufficient accommodation at a good price. Fully furnished with complete fitted kitchenware, television, and other mod cons, serviced condotels offer a stylish short-term apartment without long-term investment.
Cebu is located 365 miles south of Manila and can be reached in an hour through air travel, it is in the east of Negros Oriental, southwest of Leyte and northwest of Bohol. Strategically located at the heart of the Visayas, it serves as the jump-off points to satellite destinations in the Visayas-Leyte, Bohol-Panglao, Samar, Dumaguete, Siquijor and Mindanao islands - Cagayan de Oro, Camiguin and Surigao del Norte. It is positioned as a resort and convention destination
Expatriates and overseas Filipinos have been fueling a housing boom in Cebu, making them the industry’s top market because of their willingness to invest in quality housing or lease, short and medium term condos driving rents up to new highs.
Touted as the ultimate playground, many leisure enclaves have risen throughout the province, taking full advantage of the enviable sun-and-sand-and-mountain location.
Arguably the country's diving center, scuba divers find Moalboal, Sogod, Pescador, Santa Rosa Islands and Boyong Boyong in Mactan as prime dive spots. World-class resorts fringe the islands, serving both divers and plain tourists alike.
Modern shopping malls, fine dining restaurants and lively entertainment centers, including two casinos and sprawling golf fairways, add luster to Cebu's landscape, offering the tourist a surfeit of activities to engage in.
Beth Collingz, International Marketing Director of PLC Global, the lead marketing partners for Pacific Concord Properties Inc’s Lancaster Brand of Condotels in the Philippines said Cebu has a proven capability and economic track record. It is the second largest city and undoubtedly the fastest growing economy in the country. It leads in exports of item such as furniture, fashion accessories, carrageenan, semi-conductors, electronic products, etc and is the countries second largest IT and BPO growth area behind Metro Manila.
Because of its deep-water harbor, Cebu is the base of the country's domestic shipping. 80% of the country's major shipping companies are based in Cebu. Likewise, with the Mactan Cebu International Airport, Cebu is an accessible gateway to southern Philippines. It allows easy movement of domestic and international travelers and trading connections. Presently, direct flights are available for destinations such as Bangkok, Macau, Singapore, Jakarta, Narita, Seoul, Hong Kong, Kota Kinabalu and Qatar. Chartered flights are also available for Inchon, Kansai, Kaohsiung, Taipei and Nagoya.
Taking advantage of the Real Estate Boom, Collingz said Pacific Concord Properties Inc is expanding its Operations for the Lancaster Brand of Condotels in the Philippines and has acquired by purchase an additional 27 units in its Lancaster Cebu Resort Residences adding another 75M pesos to its project inventory and expansion program. This brings the number of properties held in the development to 75 suites with another 120 units to be added before year end for Condo Hotel rental operations.
Property is all about LOCATION said Collingz. Mactan, Cebu, provides one with both the laid back pace of provincial living, as well as prerequisites of the urban dweller. Schools, hospitals, restaurants, shopping malls, and leisure are all found on the island itself.

This ideal location will complement the Condotel operation since Lancaster Cebu will function as a condominium hotel – a preferred accommodation choice of businessmen and holiday travelers alike.
