The Loop - hassle-free living for young families

Being a newcomer here in Cagayan de Oro, finding a place to stay is one of my priorities, most specially now that I a newlywed. Building my family in a comfy, safe and convenient environment is my out-most concern. Good thing, Cagayan de Oro has it all thus before the wedding I promised my GF (then) that I'll be the one who will transfer (here in CDO).


While scouting for a place to stay, I came across "The Loop", a rising two-tower, 25-storey landmark condominium development of Vista Residences, in the heart of the city. They all covered my concerns, here's what they promised:

Comfortable living. It offers comfortable living with its space-savvy condo units, from studio to one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom units. All are thoughtfully and carefully planned and designed with the dweller's comfort in mind.

The clubhouse called The Canopy is located at the ground level to make it easily accessible to residents who may want to relax at the lounge, or get some invigorating laps at the swimming pool while the young ones have their own fun at the kiddie pool or play area.

Convenience at its best. To rise along Rosario Crescent at the Limketkai Center, The Loop is strategically located within the central business and entertainment district of CDO, making it proximate to desired destinations and locations.

Going to work is fast and convenient, with public transport available right outside the condo property. Residents can also drive the short distance from The Loop's central location to the workplace, or simply walk to modern office buildings within Limketkai Center.

Whether it's shopping, watching movies, dining out, or hanging out at their favorite coffee shop, residents will find everything within easy reach and access, including bringing kids to the clinic for their regular checkup, or to the arcade for some fun and games.

Safety for peace of mind. Everyone wants to be assured their loved ones are safe and sound inside their home even when they are not around. With The Loop's security system, its residents are safe within the condo community.

There is round-the-clock security and the concierge staff are trained to safeguard the wellbeing and privacy of the residents as well as the exclusivity of The Loop. Those planning a long trip or vacation can also lock and go, as they get the peace of mind knowing their condo home is in a secure environment.

With everything set in place for a safe, convenient, and comfortable living at The Loop, young couples and families can fully enjoy their modern, stylish, and hassle-free lifestyle. To learn more about fuss-free condo living, visit The Loop Business Hub at Rosario Crescent St., Limketkai Center, Cagayan de Oro, or call 0917-8102445.

Interesting isn't it? Now thats on my bucket list, I'll now move to my new list. That's fining a way to get a unit since this condo tower is fast selling.
