    Hi posting here after looking around the forum for best place?

    Don't really know the area, only what I've read online, just arrived Dumaguete Sunday.

    Looking for property to rent, prefer house or larger apartment, cooler areas, Valencia, Bacong etc.
    30/70k, furnished preferred. Secure, no roosters :smile:

    Thanks in advance...

    I don't know.
    I have lived in quite a few places in PH, but for me Valencia Negros is one of the better places and still reasonably close to DGTE, from there you can get to the Airport in 20mins, down to immigration in around the same time even if you go there in a Jeepney, you can also go to Bacong again in much the same time and on fairly good roads. Valencia has a very nice public park, with Tennis courts and playground for children, every Sunday they have the Farmers market. For around 20K a month you will get a good property there for rent, one place I do know does shorter term lets, Dolce Vida around 1.5mls outside Valencia proper, a bit higher in elevation and quite cool, it is a small gated, Sub-Division and does not allow Dogs, these and Karaoke are perhaps the worst noise polluters there, Roosters are something you do get used to in time.

    Street cleaning and general road maintenance is far better than any other place I lived in there, even the Park is quite well maintained, the locals seem to be more friendly towards Foreigners than many other places I have lived in, added to that there is a very low level of crime there, for the most part I think the locals are fairly honest.

    The Ex-pat community in Valencia are a cut above the rest (I was one of them Haha) mostly they are a good bunch of guys there and help each other out, all around that area Beer is priced at around P50 to 55, in DGTE and Bacong Beers are closer to P75 in Bars that are full of Foreign Reprobates, the sensible ones from these areas are drinking in Valencia.

    Thanks will definitely take a look up there.
    Looks nice, peaceful, secure, from the video.
    Good chance to explore around the area.

    Maybe a little late, but here's some thoughts to consider:
    1. Some areas are definitely unsuited if you don't have your own transport yet (because you might wait endlessly for a trike to take you where you want to go).
    2. Don't get too much hung up on the "furnished preferred" thing, unless you don't intend to stay. Furniture isn't all that expensive here.
    3. There are plenty available rentals in the 20-35k range, except if you want something with a private pool.
    4. The "secure" thing I would weigh pretty heavy, don't risk the place getting burglarized in your first couple months (like what happened to us almost 7 years ago). At a minimum make sure the place has either guards or window grilles, but preferably both.
