Modern Guest Room with covered terrace and beautiful pool. Guest room for 2 adults and 1 kid in modern house with own bathroom.

The space

This is a big property of several hectares in beautiful Bataan province north west of Manila. It can be easily reached by car or bus from Manila (2.5 hours) or Clark International Airport (1.5 hours). The place is located in plain nature with stunning vistas of the west Philippines sea and Mt. Natib, a National Park good for hiking excursions. The property is located on a hill (97 steps to climb) about 4 km. from the sea. It comprises a main house with 2 bedrooms, of which one is occupied by the owners, and the other is available for rent. Other structures on the property are a Native house called "Mango House" (see separate posting), a service house with an open kitchen, + a beautiful pool located under mango and cashew trees. Further, the property comprises “a jungle” a meadow, a vegetable garden, some rice fields and plenty of beautiful fruit trees. There are two lively dogs (Belgian Malinois), and a Carabao (Filipino water Buffalo) living on the grounds.

This is a place far away from the maddening crowd in total nature. It is good for deep relaxation, for reading a good book, or better for writing one. Due to its location, there are no shops or restaurants in walking distance, so a transportation is required to move around. Guests with their own car can reach the local market in 5 minutes, well stocked supermarkets in Balanga in 35 minutes or nearby beach clubs in 10 minutes. We are happy to make special arrangements for guests without own transportation- just approach us and we can pick you up at the local bus station in Balanga or bring you to some shopping or excursion points. Arrangements are much easier than you might think. Special rides can be negotiated against a fee, be it a trip to Subic or a pick up/drop off to the nearby International Airport in Clark.

The main house is a new, modern structure with air conditioning and warm water supply. It comprises 2 rooms, whereby the guest room (20.5 sqm) has a modern bed and comprises a built in bath and toilet. Children can be accommodated either on the sofa or on an inflatable air bed. Connected is an elevated covered terrace (23 sqm) offering superb views. It is good for dining, reading and lounging. This terrace is called "The Podium" and is effectively your outdoor living room. You will not want to leave this place to go to bed at night because the atmosphere is so good out there. Guests are invited to use the kitchen to cook up their favorite food. Alternatively, a number of simple Filipino dishes can be prepared upon request. Soft drinks, beer and wine are also on stock. There are several other places on the property inviting you to stay, relax, read or star gaze at night, including a newly built wooden tower overlooking the sea, perfect to observe the tropical sunset. Over all, this is a place out of the ordinary, a truly exceptional immersion into Filipino nature and life. Should you wish to stay longer, we would be happy to provide special long term rates for weekly or monthly use.

Should the group be bigger, we can offer a much simpler bungalow separated from the main house to accommodate another 4 person in 2 separate rooms. This bungalow (called "Mango House") is build with native materials and comes with an open toilet/shower and a large covered terrace. Special arrangements can be made for use of both guest room and mango house .
The beautiful pool with covered sitting area and separate toilet - shower-changing facility will be available for all guests, who can roam around the property at will.

There are 2 upscale beach clubs with restaurants nearby who accept day guests (entrance fee), one of them with the picture perfect tropical beach good for swimming for the entire family, and the other one featuring vintage Filipino-Spanish Houses. A number of less expensive beach clubs are also within easy access. Sport options include hiking, swimming, biking, climbing, and scuba diving. Numerous excursion possibilities lead to water falls, mountain peaks, Subic Freeport Area with shopping, dining and entertainment, the Death March memorial at Mt. Samat, among others.

House Rules

Dear guests,

1.Please switch of lights when not in use, specially on the walk raise and in the trees in the evening before going to bed.

2. Conserve water when possible.

3. Kindly walk on the stepping stones since the grasses are delicate and will vanish easily if walked on.

4. Our two Dog called Bennie and Heidi are friendly, but they might bark at you early in the morning or late at night if they cannot immediately recognize you (they do the same with us). Just call they're names "Bennie" or "Heidi'" give them enough time to sniff you out, since this is the way they get acquainted with you. Do not touch them at your first encounter, just behave normally.

5. Please watch your children in the swimming pool. No lifeguard on duty. Kindly use proper bathing attire.

6. Feel free to use your radio and videoke but kindly contain the volume and observe local sleeping time at around 10:00pm.

7. If you use the charcoal grill, kindly make sure no Fire Hazard is being created, specially if there are strong winds.

8. Strictly no drugs.

9. Please wash your dishes and store them in the dish organizer before leaving for an excursion or in the evening before going to bed in order to avoid attracting animals or insects. Put all garbage in the garbage bin and close the lid properly.

10. Your rooms have been sprayed against mosquitos before your arrival. If screen doors and windows are being kept closed, no mosquitos or other insects will come inside. In case of need just asked for more mosquito spray. Mosquito coil (Katol) is available for outside use. This is a place of nature, so some insects will be unavoidable.

Do let us know if you require something. If anything got broke, we are happy to immediately fix it. Just contact us anytime and we will be happy to assist you.

Really enjoyed our stay at Jergen's place! The place was perfect especially if you need some R&R away from the city! The dogs Benie and Heidi were very friendly as well, we had a blast playing with them! Will definitely come back again. :)

Everything in this place is beautiful. This is the perfect quiet place to get some rest and relaxation. It is so close to nature. Also, the modern room we stayed in has a lovely scenic view. And as a reader, I liked that they kept plenty of books in the room. We spent most of our stay in the pool area because we loved it so much. The caretakers esp. Rejie have been so accomodating and helpful throughout our entire stay. We enjoyed the pork humba they prepared for us. Should you wish to cook your own food, their kitchen is complete with cooking utensils. Lastly, you will also get to meet their friendly dogs Heidi and Benny. Benny will always keep you company and likes to play so be sure to have lots of energy when playing with him.

Jergen was a good host. Though she maybe miles away but she makes it a point to answer each and every query you ask. If you are looking for a place away from the city, for some peace and quiet time , then this is the best place to go. P.s I love their dogs, very friendly :)

The property was beautiful and relaxing. We were able to unwind after our trip from Manila. It is a little bit off the beaten path, but close to the beach and about 30 minutes from the largest local city. Rejie was very helpful for our entire trip there. My girlfriend and I did not have a vehicle, but for a nominal fee, Rejie was able to arrange transportation to/from the bus terminal as well as for our one full day in Bagac. He also arranged for a breakfast on our last morning there before we ran to get our bus back to Manila. The dogs definately added to our trip as well. I enthusiastically recommend this property and host for anyone considering a trip to Bataan.

We had the best vacation in this home. The room is modern, spacious and clean. The view from the house is spectacular. You can spend the whole day staying there, swimming or just relaxing in the many scenic parts of the property. There is a complete kitchen you can use to cook. Benny (the dog) is very friendly and playful, we will miss playing catch with him. The caretakers were helpful too. We wanted to stay longer but since we can't, we will surely be back. :)
