Tucked in a community of prewar houses, this homey bungalow was featured in Elle decor Magazine because of it's nice interior design. It is decorated with antique eclectic pieces and paintings that adorn the walls collected by the artist/ owner.
This charming bungalow is in the heart of Manila,between the airport and Makati. You won't feel like you're in the city because of the trees, plants and the sound of birds chirping. There is a mall called Robinson's which is walking distance and has shops and cafes like Starbucks, Pancake house, supermarket and many more.
Guests can make use of the living room to relax and listen to music .There is an old phono and vinyl records to use . They can use the antique piano with care. Breakfast may be served upon requests and may be served on the porch garden or dining table. They may also use the kitchen. Pls. ask Ramon, the all around staff for all your queries. Ramon has worked for me for three decades and he's a trusted driver/cook/housekeeper.

There's only one bed in the room but we can add a maximum of two more
beds if needed( kinda crowded) , otherwise, one bed is usually the case if only one guest, so there's more space.

You may request a heartier breakfast of pancakes and bacon etc for a minimum cost from the staff.
Pls. make sure that the gate is locked right as you come in or leave the premises. The aircon must be turned off when you leave as electricity cost is one of the highest in Asia.
Pls. ask Ramon to show you how to turn on the sound system or the gas valve , making sure it is always off. Leo can only eat dog food and we appreciate that you don't feed him.

It is much better to take UBER or GRAB than taxi. You can tell driver to waze Leo’s secret Villa, because it's on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) map. Also pls. No smoking inside the house. You can step out to the porch to smoke.
Hi I'm a visual artist and I'm based in Manila. I hope I am in town when you arrive as I would love to help you with some info on places to see and where to eat. I'd be more than happy to answer queries on anything.
I usually travel to New York and to places on my bucket list.
I have tried being a guest on Airbnb and I really love it. I get to understand the culture and the people more. I hope I can do the same thing my host did at least or even better. Welcome to this side of the planet.
