DMCI Homes' Rhapsody Residences: A Heaven in Muntinlupa!


Three years ago if we knew about this place, I believe we would have gotten a place here.

          
           DMCI Homes Rhapsody Residences is a beautiful heaven in Muntinlupa where families
 or newlyweds can start a secure home and a happy life with the amenities of a mansion!


        Rhapsody Residences is a premier condo community project of DMCI Homes— a company of innovative builders and engineering experts that develops modern day living solutions for urban families. Each of its developments is built with world-standard craftsmanship borne from D.M. Consunji Inc.’s almost 60 years of expertise in the construction and development industry. Its corporate philosophy is anchored on a deep understanding that buying a home is more about investing in a better way of living.

       Thanks to feature-rich, ideally located communities, residents can finally enjoy a more comfortable and meaningful way of life where they can feel real good to be home.







       

       Rhapsody Residences is just right after the toll gate of East Service Road. A friend of mine lives there and tells me that it’s just more or less a 15-minute drive to his work in Makati and he hardly encounters traffic. Looks like it’s a great location too for workers in Makati. 


       Upon entering the vicinity, first thing that caught my attention was the breathable basement parking area. You see, the thing I hate most about basement parking is how stuffy they are because there’s hardly any fresh air coming in. It’s hot, very humid, and almost suffocating (at least it was like that at the basement of the parking lot of our old condo somewhere in Ortigas Center). So it was a delight for me to see this parking wherein air circulates well. It’s just semi-underground so there’s space for wide windows for air to get it. Genius!



      Next I noticed that all the buildings there were mid-rise. My fear about living in condos is earthquakes. But here in Rhapsody Residences, there are only 5 floors. So you can easily rush down using the stairs should an earthquake occur (knock on wood).



       I also appreciate the fact that all the buildings are well-ventilated with fresh air. All the buildings have open space in the middle with tall palm trees and some landscapes and plants for more oxygen. And of course it gives a more homey-feel to it too!

The Units

       We took a tour and checked out the units of Rhapsody Residences. From bare to furnished. It’s a good size for a starter home. And each unit have balconies with different views.

Bare 2-Bedroom Unit with Balcony (58 sq):

Master's Bedroom with Balcony

Furnished 2- Bedroom Unit with Balcony (56.50 sq):

Tandem Unit with Balcony (114 sq):

       Aaaah this is more like it for me! This is more ideal for married couples with more than 1 kid.

Bedroom 2

And everyone's favorite, the Master's Bedroom! With an area for a love seat in front of the TV!

And a Walk- in Closet!!!

        All the women let out a big sigh as soon as we saw this! A walk-in closet at the master’s bedroom! Very tastefully done!


Every girl's dream!

I wonder if the clothes are part of the package hahaha!
Master's Bathroom
Communal Bathroom

Extra room. Can be as a helper's room or a guest room. It looks small but once you step inside it's actually quite spacious! Just right for single bed up against the wall, and then a  small TV or a small cabinet. Or better yet, a pull-out cabinet from under the bed to maximize space

       
AMENITIES  

       Let’s face it, the reason why the prices of these condos are a little bit on the higher side is because you’re also paying for your security and amenities. And that’s a huge factor in living in condos. You’ll never have to worry about the garbage collector not collecting your garbage, you’ll never have to worry about akyat-bahay gangs (house robbers), and you’ll be able to tell your friends “Hey guys wanna swim at my place?” because you have a pool right there!



The Club House:

“Rina! We’re on our way to visit you! We’re about 10 minutes away”

Uh oh.....

What do you do when you get a message like this and the house is currently a mess? You cram and push all mess under a rug.



       So what I love about the concept of a condo club house is that you have a nice and presentable receiving area to welcome your guest. And Rhapsody Residence’s club lounge is such a pretty and comfy place to do just that! 



       They even have a certain area there with a flat-screen TV! Perfect for when your guest is waiting for you to come down. And yes, free wifi! With the password posted on the wall! Another stroke of genius!

Function Rooms 


       No need to go far when planning a party because Rhapsody Residences has got two huge function rooms, and a meeting room! The Function Room on the second floor alone can hold around 80 people. I think even more on the Multi Purpose Hall.



       The Multi Purpose Hall on the third floor has very nice high ceilings with nice lamps. Rain kept running around like crazy! She loved this hall! Oh and it has its own comfort room for male and female.



       Outside the Multi Purpose Hall is an open smoking area with outdoor lounge chairs with those big umbrellas. I can imagine it would be nice to hang out here at night and go star-gazing.



       At the second floor, beside the Function Room, you will find the gym 
equipped with weights and treadmills. 




 The size is’t that bad. And it’s air-conditioned too!




       And at the semi-basement of the Club House is an Entertainment area with a Foosball table, 
and 2 sets of chess tables at the sides...




There’s also a huge Audio-Visual Room, with karaoke!


       I just love how they designed the place! With a karaoke room like this I'd probably have visitors over all the time!



... And there’s a Laundry area plus coming soon is a convenience store! You’ll never have to leave this place again!


Pools

       Among all the other DMCI Homes that I was able to check out about 2 years back when we were still house hunting, this has got to have the biggest set of pools I’ve seen! 

Kiddie Pool

The kiddie pool alone is already very big.  

Adult Pool

Then there’s the adult pool (also huge)


Lap pool

and finally, a lap pool that is probably Olympic-sized already. Just a guess. 



They have pretty lounge chairs


And a shower area to wash off dirt before dipping in the pool





       I also love the fact that they have this wide area of nothing but grass where kids can run around and play. They also have a separate playground with slides and swings and stuff (which we didn’t get to visit) and also a very nice outdoor basketball court.

Strict security... 

Three beautiful and huge pools ...

A huge and cozy club house to meet up with visitors...

Beautiful landscapes all around...

       I can totally see myself living here. If we don’t already have our own place, I would consider getting a unit here. I would get the tandem unit so Rain has her own room and we’d have an extra room for our next baby in the future.

  8. Good day. If you are interested to get a unit in this location. I am selling my 2 bedroom unit in Lyre building which is just beside the clubhouse. I am selling it because my work is taking me overseas and I did not get the chance to live in this property. It is brand new for anyone who wishes to buy it. I am looking for direct buyers only because I am only on vacation and wish to sell this unit ASAP at a discounted price. If interested, please contact me at 09054942814. Thank you.
