After a busy week, all that we need is an escape even just for 2 days. Weekend is the best time for an ultimate relaxation or a perfect staycation. Thankfully, we discovered Casa Belinda to get away temporarily from all the stress and responsibility. This serene place is near at Mt. Malarayat, 15 minutes away from SM Lipa and the city life.
ABOUT CASA BELINDA
Casa Belinda is a private rest house situated in Lipa, Batangas that is owned by a family. Originally it’s a ranch where horses are raised and turned into a country living rest house. It has 1 adult pool, 1 mini kiddie pool, a villa and rooms good for 2 persons.
When I said it’s private, it’s literally private because walk-ins are not allowed. In fact, we were just the 16th group of visitors checked-in since they opened the place through Airbnb. Reservation is a must before getting here. What’s good about this is that visitors will surely have their own privacy and makes you feel you owned the whole place.
- Air conditioned room
- Cable TV
- Bath essentials
- Swimming Pool
- Free breakfast
Our villa consist of two bedrooms that can accommodate upto 6 persons. The interior design and furniture made me feel that I am in a western country. It’s truly not an ordinary place yet will make you still feel at home. Everything you need for a convenient staycation is being provided such as television, convertible sofa, kitchen, air-conditioned room and many more. Beside the villa is a farm where organic vegetables grows for their family and friends and even visitors.
Cabin – 8,242 per night (good for 6 pax)
- No smoking
- Pets are not allowed
- Check-in is anytime after 2PM
- Check out by 12PM (noon)
I would rate our experience 10/10. If you’re looking for an escape from work routine I would definitely recommend this place. Once you’re inside Casa Belinda you can stay in the villa all day and enjoy watching cable programs while sitting or lying on the convertible sofa bed. What I also love about the place is the free Wi-Fi and LTE network signal so you can still do your usual online stuff.
If you’re a person who lacks sleep this is the perfect place for you! Urge not to sleep is unavoidable due to comfy ambiance especially when it’s raining. Our overnight stay is so “bitin”, I hoped we had a chance to stay much longer. Nevertheless, we really enjoyed our weekend at Casa Belinda. The food served to us was freshly cooked and in fact, the ingredients were harvested from the farm. The staffs are your typical Batangenos which are known for their hospitality. They made sure that everything we need was prepared and requests were being provided as much as they can.
