The property is roomy and has lots of space – 2,000 square meters of it! This space is occupied by a private pool, a manicured garden, and of course, the stunning villa itself. The whole compound rests on top of a hill, giving guests a view of the city below.

One highlight of the villa is the amazing pool. With an area of 60 square meters and its deepest at 2.7 meters (9 feet), the swimming pool is a great spot to cool down or lounge beside with your company. The pool also features a small waterfall installation for relaxing ambiance. Speaking of ambiance, you’ll be swimming beside a characteristic rock wall and the charming villa, with a view of the garden.

The villa also has a place for solace in its very own garden. At around 280 square meters, you’ll have plenty of room to walk, lie down, and meditate among the trees and the grass. The garden even has a little pond to add character to it!

The last, yet most impressive, is the villa itself. Inspired by French castle architecture, it’s a combination of contemporary and characteristic! As the centerpiece of the property, you can admire the grooves and curves of the intricate design from any area in the premises.

The bedrooms are furnished and decorated simply, yet beautifully. Their use of solid colors makes the rooms easy on the eyes and royally relaxing – fitting for sleeping in a castle on a hill!

The villa has many common areas around the house, including a kitchen and dining room. All of the common areas are fan-ventilated, letting in that fresh air from the garden. They have a game room with a billiards table and dart board for some indoor recreation away from the sun. The villa has no Wi-Fi, but accommodates unlimited karaoke as long as barangay rules for noise are followed.

If you’re planning to cook or bring your own meals, the villa does not impose corkage on any food brought in from the outside. You’re very much invited to cook with their fully equipped kitchen with BBQ area. After all, what staycation is complete without quality time in the kitchen and a homemade feast?
