Review: Embraced by nature, cuddled by luxury at Treehouse De Valentine

Our childhood dream of living in a treehouse will always be that special dream we won’t ever outgrow. Now imagine that dream treehouse but bigger, grander, and more magical.

Located in Brgy. Hingatmonan, Balamban Cebu, the Treehouse De Valentine is the perfect nest away from the stress and fast life in the city. And we’re happy we came across it while browsing for staycation places on Airbnb.

Embraced by Nature

Ever seen the magical forest that was home to the elves in the “Lord of the Rings” movie? That is what it looked and felt like. It’s like stepping into our own magical dream of a home embraced and in one with nature.

Everything that surrounds you radiates warmth like the green in trees, the temperature that feels like hugs, and the humidity in the air.

We felt so at ease and relaxed as we listen to the sound of flowing water.

Cuddled by Luxury

The calmness of the environment isn’t in contrast with the treehouse as it doesn’t seem to be separate from it. It feels like hanging out and dining right in the heart of nature.

The place was very big and spacious. So, for those who need just to take a deep breath and let all the stress go. This is it.

We bathe in our own wooden bathtub just inches away from trees and read by the balcony overlooking the river.

They also have the most comfortable king-sized beds in this 3-bedroom abode which was the perfect end to a lot of exploring and reflecting during the day.

Wifi and mobile signal were low and intermittent at times, but we expected this given its secluded location and it did not ruin our experience. It’s best to come with pre-download movies and music before arriving.

Overall, Treehouse de Valentine is a very cozy, eco-friendly, and Instagramable stay. We’re lucky Airbnb makes it convenient for us to experience this magical, rejuvenating place in Cebu. It’s indeed the best blace to rest and immerse in nature.
