Finding an ideal home to raise a family

Parents always want what is best for their kids, from providing them the best home to live in, to giving them the best education possible.


This is what Mr. Vincent Atienza Cifra felt exactly when he and his wife’s first child was about to be born. 


Like every parent, Vincent, a young government agency executive, said he and his wife, Anne, wanted to raise their child in an environment that encourages healthy growth.


Fortunately, during that time when their first child was about to be born, it also coincided with their move-in to their two-bedroom unit at DMCI Homes’ Calathea Place community along Dr. A. Santos Ave. in Parañaque City.


“My wife and I decided to move to Calathea Place a few weeks before the birth of our firstborn child because we wanted to provide our baby daughter with a clean, comfortable, and secure environment during her early years,” Vincent said.


Two years after moving into their unit, Vincent said the four-building development has provided them what they had expected for in a home and much more.


“We like the relaxing and resort-feel environment. The condominium’s design or set-up that is so ‘maaliwalas’ as we say in Filipino I think stands out,” he said when asked what he likes most about their new home.


“It is a comfortable space that can surely relieve one’s stress levels after a hard day’s work,” he continued.


Vincent and his wife, Anne, are grateful they found the ideal place to raise their daughter, Vera.

Vincent is likewise thankful to have found a community with good neighbors and property managers that make them love their new home even more. 


“We like the condominium staff. There are many good services that they provide such as customer and client relations, pest control, cleaning, etc,” he shared.


Vincent said the PMO has been very helpful especially during this time of uncertainty by implementing measures that ensure the safety and security of residents.


“The visitor control was really beneficial. I am satisfied with the Property Management Office (PMO), though of course, like in all organizations, there is still room for improvement,” he related.


Moreover, Vincent is happy they got what they envisioned exactly for a home for their daughter, Vera.


“Our baby is two years old now and we can say with confidence that we were able to experience that environment of cleanliness, comfort, and security at the Calathea Place,” he beamed.
