Stellar Place | May 2, 2021

Nicco and Gytha are happy to live in a safe, secured, and pet-friendly community especially during these challenging times.

Having met all his requirements for his first home, young physician Nicco Valenzuela, always knew he made the right decision in investing in a condominium unit in DMCI Homes’ Stellar Place community in Visayas Avenue, Quezon City.

Nicco, 30, said the resort-inspired community ticked all the factors he and his wife Gytha, wanted for a first home which is a homey vibe, superb location, good ventilation, pet-friendly, excellent property management, and a nurturing environment for his passion for photography.

“We wanted a home that really does feel like a home and DMCI Homes is well known for having properties like that. Ventilation is a key determinant in our choice for a condo and DMCI’s designs provided that comfortable and breathable space not just in the amenities but the units themselves,” Nicco shared.

“Another non-negotiable factor for us is having a pet-friendly environment. We live with a dog who we consider precious and being able to have him with us, especially during this pandemic, really lifts our spirits,” he continued.


Nicco, who is an avid landscape and architecture photographer, says DMCI Homes condos not just provide quality living spaces but also offer perfect vantage points to see the cityscapes.


Given the nature of his work as a medical doctor, Nicco also wanted to live in a community that makes everything in the metro within easy reach like his workplace as well as top universities, malls, and transportation infrastructures like the North Luzon Expressway.

“Of course one of the most important things we considered when choosing a home was functionality. DMCI Homes strategically places their properties near crucial locations where people can easily work and live. Our condo is very accessible to my workplace and is also surrounded by very convenient necessities,” he related.

Moreover, Nicco said they wanted to live in a well-designed condominium that can be their sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of city life.

“I like the landscaped atriums, the pools, and of course, the roof deck which offers a perfect venue for relaxation and even remote-work. The roof deck serves as a breathing space for me and often, also a perfect spot for when I want to do photography.”

Stellar Place, he said, offers an environment that stimulates his passion for photography.

“Everyone knows that aside from providing amazing living spaces, DMCI condos also offer perfect vantage points to see the cityscapes and that was particularly one of the reasons why I wouldn’t ever choose another condo,” declared Nicco who is an avid landscape and architecture photographer.

“The clean and intricately designed architecture and interiors also serve as perfect backgrounds when I need photos of myself, or other things that need this modern and organized look,” he added.


Stellar Place is a charming mixed-type community of high-rise and medium-rise condominium buildings with rejuvenating resort-inspired amenities.

Right decision

According to Nicco, while they always knew that they invested in the right condominium, living in a DMCI Homes community at a time of a health crisis made them appreciate their decision to get a condo for rent in Quezon City even more.

“When you’re living in a community that assures safety and security, it takes out a lot of the worries that you don’t need especially in extraordinary times like a pandemic,” Nicco explained.

The young medical doctor gave praises to the Property Management Office for ensuring the safety and security of Stellar Place residents especially during this time of uncertainty.

“DMCI condominiums are the most secure places I’ve seen. They are always committed in their mission to make all residents safe from any unwanted threats and they make sure that this is felt. Security is 24/7 and while this pandemic is happening, they have stepped up their roles by assuring that safety and health standards are being enforced for everyone’s sake,” Nicco said.

“Even before the pandemic, DMCI Homes has provided us with living conditions that were very well worth every cent spent. Now that we live in unusual settings, our choice has only proven to be perfect,” he beamed.
