Major Renovation and Long Term Lease Availability of the CDM Beach House
Since last month several renovation projects had been initiated at the Chateau Du Mer Beach House. The first project is the installation of a more durable fence consisting of cement, hollow blocks and PVC pipes. Thus, there will be no more rusts problems( from the salty ocean breezes) of the chain link fence that had provided security and privacy of the property for the last 15 years. Estimated cost of this project is $2000 ( dollars). As of today the dollar to peso exchange is 1 to 44.7 in Manila and 1 to 44.3 here in Marinduque.
The second project is upgrading the electrical wiring system to accommodate new air conditioning system.
The third project is installing stainless steel gutter system.
The fourth project is to install new shade system in the balcony at the upper floor of the beach house.
Last year a kitchenette area was installed at the lower level. The kitchenette has a refrigerator, two-hole gas burners and a microwave oven for light cooking.
Completion of this renovation is targeted one week before the Holy Week Season. As of today, I have received several inquiries from several prospective clients from Manila, Europe and from the US. I required a minimum of 3-4 days stay at the beach house and an advance deposit of 1000 pesos to confirm the dates of your reservation.
As of today our most important business decision is to make available a long term rental of the beach house( minimum of 6 to 12 months renewable lease).
If you know of anyone looking for a beach house to rent on a long term basis please contact me. I will give a 10% commission to all referrals based on the first month rental lease agreement. For details call me at 042-332-1338 ( land line in Philippines) or on my cell phone 09098967590 or in my US phone at 916-961-3365.
