Feel good moments at Rosewood Pointe

The rooftop restaurant offers a panoramic view of the city skylines and Laguna de Bay

MANILA, Philippines - Rosewood Pointe, a resort-like residential enclave situated in Acacia Estates, Taguig, is living up to its promise as a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the city and as a showcase of modern urban lifestyle. Within the neo-Asian mid-rise and high-rise condominium complex built by DMCI Homes, families enjoy the comforts of fine homes, leisure in the swimming pool and other recreational facilities, and the beauty of well-manicured gardens and scenic Laguna Lake.

Homeowners like Jomar Hilario have other reasons to be satisfied. The 42-year-old father of three lives in a two-bedroom corner unit of Jade Tower, one of the two high-rise buildings of the gated village. The couple and their young children’s own bedroom give them privacy. “It’s good for a growing family,” he says.

Jomar mentions the wind that cools their home. “For the first two years of our stay here, we are like moving along the South Superhighway inside the house,” he quips. “The wind enters the dining room window and exits through the bedroom window.”

Having windows in both sides of the unit are hallmarks of DMCI Homes architecture to allow cross ventilation and passive cooling thereby reducing reliance on air-conditioning and saving on electric consumption.

During the Hilarios’ early days as resident, the family spends more time inside their home. They later realized that outside is even better because of the first-class amenities. But the Hilarios are actually getting more than the usual benefits.

As an online marketer and virtual assistant teacher, Hilario works at home using just a computer and the Internet. In contrast, neighbors travel to distant workplaces. This allows the entire family to have the swimming pool and playground almost for themselves on most days of the week.

Rosewood Pointe has a small and big function rooms for holding birthday parties, debut balls or baptismal and wedding receptions. For Hilario, he rents the rooms for face-to-face meetings and training seminars for his clients who want to work from home like him. Sometimes, he meets his trainees in the Garden Sky Lounge in the Ivory Tower. The rooftop restaurant has a nice lounge and balcony overlooking the Makati and Taguig skylines as well as Laguna de Bay.

In terms of location, Rosewood Pointe is very appealing to Hilario’s wife. She can easily get household needs from nearby supermarkets. The C-5 Road also makes travel to the Makati Central Business District and the Bonifacio Global City fast for residents.

Hilario used to live in a rented one-bedroom apartment in Mandaluyong. When he got married in 2006 and his wife gave birth to their first child the following year, their home, which was intended for a single occupant, became too cramped for them. He started to look for a new home. A Rosewood Pointe brochure led him to the site, where five-story residential condominiums were already completed. He was offered the remaining unsold units of the still unconstructed Jade tower and he accepted it.
