When we choose a home, two things always come to mind: whether it is in a convenient location, and whether it lies near major roads and is accessible by public transport.
A convenient location means your home is near your place of work, the school where your children are studying, or the commercial or leisure centers you frequent. A home near your place of work ensures that you always reach the office or start business on time. It also means the kids are never late to school. On weekends and holidays, it should be close enough to your favorite hangout, be it a mall or other leisure destination.
Its location vis-à-vis public transport also means you will not have difficulty leaving for work in the morning or coming home at the end of the day. If it is near a major road or highway, you can always leave for the office without hassle. And should it be your color-coding day, you can always commute to and from work without being vexed by finding a ride.
Southern Metro Manila is no longer as far away as it used to be. In fact, many major industries have moved their offices here. And unlike the busy center of Metro Manila, the pace in the cities south of Metro Manila move at an unhurried pace. Those seeking less harried lifestyles are now considering moving here.
Ohana Place is DMCI Homes’ first medium-rise residential development in Las Piñas City. Taking into consideration factors such as location and accessibility, it is the perfect home for families living in Las Piñas and Muntinlupa as well as the Cavite and Laguna areas wishing to upgrade their lifestyles. And with the resort ambience the development is offering, it is suited for those who desires a relaxed way of living.
Ohana Place is strategically located along the busy Alabang-Zapote Road that runs from Las Piñas to the Alabang area in Muntinlupa. Some might find the address unfamiliar, but in terms of location, it is just a few minutes away from the posh Alabang residential area and major commercial districts of the Metro Manila south.
All major conveniences one would find in the city center are near Ohana Place. Nearby Alabang is home to the Madrigal Business Park and Filinvest Corporate City. Major commercial centers are in close proximity, too. There’s SM Southmall, Alabang Town Center and Festival Supermall. Some of the major exclusive schools are here. There’s De La Salle Zobel, Woodrose, Southridge, and San Beda College Alabang. And for those seeking medical attention, some of the newer hospitals, such as the Alabang Medical Clinic, Asian Hospital and Perpetual Help Hospital are within the area.
The location of Ohana Place along the Alabang-Zapote Road assures commuters that they can easily reach the property since public transport plies this route. Likewise, residents can easily reach the property through either the South Luzon Expressway or Coastal Road. Whether you are coming from Manila or Makati or even faraway Cavite, you are sure to find a convenient way to get to Ohana Place.
Located in a 3.15-hectare property, Ohana Place will have seven buildings, each named after known locations and tourist destinations in Hawaii. The reference to Hawaii isn’t surprising considering that the property, when seen from an aerial perspective, resembles the islands of Hawaii.
The entire property is Hawaiian-inspired, with the laidback and relaxed lifestyle of Hawaii the main inspiration for the property. Residents will feel close to nature with the resort environment they will find at Ohana Place.
Unifying with the Hawaiian theme, the mid-rise residential buildings will follow a modern Polynesian design. Buildings will be in neutral earth colors to complement the greens throughout the property. In common areas, such as the Luau Pavilion (Grand Clubhouse), the use of natural materials and textured finishes bring a sense of warmth, while traditional tiki-inspired artworks are used as accent pieces.
There are four unit types available to suit the needs of residents. Unit types available include 21 sqm studio units; two-bedroom units, with floor areas from 42, 49.5, 51, to 60 sqm; 66 sqm three-bedroom units and tandem units with a total unit size of 84 sqm.
There’s no need to drive away on weekends to spend quality time with the family. Ohana Place has a Grand Clubhouse that is surrounded by various recreation amenities. Inside the Luau Pavilion (Grand Clubhouse) is a lounge area, an air-conditioned function room with a kitchen, fitness gym with a dance area, a recreation hall, entertainment room, veranda overlooking the pool area, convenience store, laundry pickup booth and water station. Outdoors, there are adult and kiddie pools complete with a central mound highlighted by water cascades and slides, a sunbathing deck, basketball court, cabanas with grill pits, a children’s playground and a number of pocket parks and gardens spread throughout the property.
And as in all developments by DMCI Homes, there is a Property Management Office (PMO) that handles security and general upkeep of the property. Some of the services it offers include 24-hour security with roving personnel, general maintenance of common areas, move-in assistance, utilities application, utilities and realty tax payment service, taxi call-in service, and organizing of community events. For a fee, the PMO can also offers car wash service and newspaper delivery.
