When one mentions Parañaque, what immediately comes to mind is Dampa, a fisherman’s village and seafood restaurant; the Ninoy Aquino International Airport and Duty Free Complex; and the city’s lots and lots of subdivisions. The city is known for gated communities and exclusive villages. One of which is BF Homes, touted as Asia’s biggest residential subdivision. Gated communities and other real estate developmetns make Parañaque as one of the best places to find houses for rent in Metro Manila.
Aside from the above-mentioned BF Homes, Parañaque also has other gated communities teeming with houses, townhouses, and traditional apartments or row-houses for rent and for sale.
One of these is Better Living Subdivision in Barangay Don Bosco along Doña Soledad Avenue. To get to Better Living, one needs to take the South Luzon Expressway and make an exit to Bicutan. This subdivision offers plenty of newly built houses and townhouses for rent, ranging in price from PhP 45,000 to PhP 62,500 per month.
Another location where it is good to look for a house and lot for rent in Parañaque, Metro Manila is Merville Park in Barangay Merville. Houses in this subdivision are in the higher-end of the price spectrum and, therefore, are larger and more spacious. A typical house for rent here can be rented for PhP 40,000 to PhP 350,000 per month. Close to Merville is Moonwalk Village (Phase 1 and Phase 2), which both offer more modest but quality houses and townhouses for rent. A typical three-bedroom apartment or row-house in Moonwalk Village Phase 1 can be rented for PhP 70,000 per month. Then closer to the airport is Multinational Village, a place characterized by sprawling homes and villas. Similar to Merville Park, a typical house and lot for rent in Multinational Village can be rented for PhP 60,000 to PhP 560,000 per month.
Arguably, the most well-known village in Parañaque is BF Homes. Often referred to in Philippine media as “the biggest subdivision in Asia,” BF Homes is a large residential enclave shared by the cities of Parañaque and Las Piñas. At the peak of its popularity in the 1970s, BF Homes was perhaps the only gated community in the Philippines with its own hotel and resort, movie theater, bowling alley, convenience store, and other commercial complexes. At the moment, this sprawling suburban community is a collection of more than 80 separate enclaves, each of which is fenced, guarded, and issues separate car stickers for residents. Houses and lots for rent in Parañaque, Metro Manila found inside BF Homes can be rented for PhP 25,000 to PhP 550,000 per month.
Parañaque is also known for its more budget-friendly subdivisions, including Gatchalian Village, Villanueva Village, San Antonio Valley, Greenheights Village, and many others. With so much inventory available, it will be easy to find a house to rent in Paranaque, Metro Manila.
