For someone who has been playing basketball since grade school, JVee Casio obviously loves the sport.
"It's my life," says the 27-year-old point guard of the Alaska Aces team in the Philippine Basketball Association.
From a career that included a stint in the De La Salle University Green Archers and Gilas Philippine national team, basketball also gave the No. 1 PBA draft pick in 2011 the means to achieve his personal goals endearing the sports to him even more. He was able to save enough money from playing basketball to acquire a home at Siena Park Residences, a DMCI Homes residential condominium community in Bicutan, Parañaque City.
Seeing the resort-themed community along the West Service Road while hunting for a new house in 2010, Casio easily fell in love with Siena Park Residences. The community's location was the deciding factor for acquiring a two-bedroom unit in the ground floor of Lilac, one of 11 five-storey residential buildings in Siena Park Residences. He lived with his parents in the Sucat area and his wife grew up in Better Living so the location offers a sentimental charm to the couple.
His DMCI Homes agent at the time described Siena Park Residences as a resort-type condo community with buildings of five floors.
"I liked it," Casio recalls. "Seeing just the model unit, I already felt comfortable. Me and my wife decided right there and then to choose Siena Park for our home."
The Siena Park buildings are either single row or double row, where doors open to refreshing central atriums on the ground floor. Upper floors have single loaded corridors so that doors don't face each other directly and let more natural light and air come in.
The buildings are served by elevators and unit owners have more than 600 open and covered parking slot options. There are 985 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom units built according to the world-class quality standards of DMCI Homes, which is backed by its mother company’s 60 years of track record in construction. Aside from their affordability, each unit also has a two-year warranty for workmanship.
Since moving in last October, a month after their wedding, the couple is now enjoying their new home. He drives his wife to work at the Mall of Asia before going to his practice and picks her up in the evening on weekdays. On weekends, they swim and Jackie likes working out in the fitness gym.
Manicured gardens and outdoor recreational facilities, including swimming pools across the Casios’ unit and a basketball court, provide invigorating and soothing activities. There are also a jogging path, gardens, playground, gazebos and cabanas.
“It’s very relaxing,” says Casio. “When I look around from our balcony, it really feels refreshing because there is no pollution and it’s very peaceful.”
He adds that the Siena Park’s atmosphere and amenities benefit athletes like him.
“Basketball can be stressful because the game and practice are physical. You really get very tired so for us players, rest and relaxation are important,” he says.
Casio meets new friends or get acquainted with neighbors whenever he plays in the basketball court. Meantime, other indoor amenities include a multi-function room, audio-visual room, game room and meeting room.
“My wife’s mother celebrated her birthday at the function room,” he says.
The Property Management Office people and security guards are helpful and courteous. For the residents’ convenience, there’s a water refilling and laundry station. The whole community is secured by a gated entrance with guardhouse, perimeter fence and 24-hour duty security guards. The buildings have CCTV cameras in common areas and an automatic fire alarm and suppression system. A standby power generator provides electricity during brownouts.
Siena Park Residences in Barangay Sun Valley, Parañaque is near major thoroughfares giving residents easy access to the Taguig, Makati and Alabang central business districts via the South Luzon Expressway. From the gate of the community along West Service Road, convenience stores, restaurants, coffee shops, churches, hospitals and schools are also just minutes away.
Like the sport that has been very good to him, Casio loves Siena Park Residences because it will be a good home for his family.
