Travel Bug: Balay Celina (Batangas)
If you’re looking for a house to rent in Punta Fuego (Batangas), this place is highly recommended. Great for big families and even small-scale team building outings for some companies. This three storey beach house comes complete with all the creature comforts you need, and has a videoke set to boot! Maximum occupancy is about 15 people. Had the chance to stay here with friends several times and did a shoot for editorials here as well. I highly suggest bringing a jacket since the breeze from the sea can make things chilly even for a summer night. There’s the occasional Jurassic-sized mosquito visit, but that’s a norm especially in out of town places like these. Bring a handly bottle of bug spray to be on the safe side.
They have a very attentive house staff headed by their caretaker Josie. They do the usual housekeeping chores, but having them market and prepare food for guests entail an extra fee of P 2,000.00 for an overnight stay. For the piece of mind (and convenience), I would suggest taking the service.
Going to the main beach / clubhouse is a 1 minute drive or 5 minute walk depending on your preference. That comes with a guest rate of P 1,000.00 / head (consumable). The food in the club house is of the usual American / continental menu, so you can expect the usual fare of burgers, pizza and all-day breakfast items. Nothing totally fancy, but ain’t shabby either.
You can get there either by passing through Cavite (Tarnate-Nasugbu Highway). For a more scenic route, take the SLEX-Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay City connection instead.
