Planning to Retire Soon!
If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you! If this is your first time in my site, welcome. Please do not forget to read the latest national and international news in the right side bar of this blog. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights.

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.
