The Province of Rizal, located directly east of Metro Manila and composed of 13 municipalities and one city (Antipolo) lost many of its towns when Metropolitan Manila was created in 1975. Indeed, all cities and towns of the National Capital Region, save for Manila, Pasay, Valenzuela, and Quezon City, were once part of Rizal Province. However, it did not lose much of its laidback and bucolic charm. On the contrary, the province has become a sort of go-to place for weekend getaways for the weary urbanites of the metro. In Rizal, you can enjoy the crisp, morning air of Antipolo, which is just a few kilometers from Cubao, and experience that artistic vibe of Angono, which is close to Pasig via Ortigas Avenue Extension. For a more rural experience, drive a little further east to Tanay, where the exciting Masungi Reserve awaits.
Because of its proximity to Metro Manila, many property developers have built so many residential projects in Rizal to cater to the province’s growing population (a large portion of which is a spillover from the metro itself). In Antipolo City, for instance, there are so many subdivision developments or gated communities, including Camella Crestwood, Forest Ridge, and Park Hills Subdivision, among many others. Over at Cainta, there’s Grand Monaco, Greenland Executive Village, and Filinvest East Homes, while in Taytay, there’s Havila Taytay, Zuri Residences, and Amarilyo Crest. These projects are just some of those that offer houses for rent in Rizal, and plenty more are in the pipeline.
There are various gated subdivisions where you can find a house for rent in Rizal that fits almost any budget. For instance, a three-bedroom, one-bathroom, single-detached home in Junmar Homes in Dalig, Antipolo, can be had for just PhP 15,000 per month. This location is conveniently close to Antipolo Doctors Hospital, Robinsons Place Antipolo, Assumption Antipolo, and La Salle Antipolo. On the other hand, do you prefer a newly-built property? A brand new house for rent in Rizal with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, terrace, and car garage in Village East Executive Homes can be rented for PhP 40,000 a month. This house is located in a flood-free subdivision that is quiet and secure. Nearby landmarks in the property are Ayala Feliz, Robinsons East Mall, SM Masinag, SM Marikina, and Eastwood.
For prominent families looking for a semi-mansion home, a house in Havila Mission Hills Antipolo with a floor area of 500 square meters can be rented for PhP 100,000. This property can fit up to 50 persons. It has a total of five bedrooms, two living rooms, four bathrooms, two kitchens, laundry area, garden, and gated garage.
Indeed, Rizal Province is not called one of Metro Manila’s bedroom communities for nothing. The province’s many subdivisions and gated communities offer houses for rent in Rizal that are not only affordable but also spacious and conveniently located for families of virtually any budget.
