Weekend Staycation at Casa Belinda (Lipa, Batangas)

Saturday, February 03, 2018

When I retire, I want to live in the countryside and experience country living. I want to have my own place where I can’t hear cars honking right outside my window. A place where I don’t have to worry about neighbors playing videoke too loud. A place where I can hear birds chirping or rooster crowing in the morning. A place where there is little light pollution so I could see countless stars at night.
Casa Belinda's more enchanting at night :)
About Casa Belinda 
Originally a ranch, Casa Belinda was acquired by the owner just 5 years ago. It used to be a place where the previous owners raise horses. Eventually, the current owner turned the farm into a cozy country abode combining country living elements and contemporary design. They also allotted a large area to grow organic lettuce and other crops for their family and friends. Many who have visited Casa Belinda urged the owner to open the place to the public so that people can experience country living at its finest.
Although it was gloomy that day, we received warm welcome from the staff of Casa Belinda :)
The Modern Kubo
This 2 bedroom kubo, our home away from home, comes complete with wonderful views of Mount Malarayat Golf & Country Club. The country living inspired kubo is well-suited for families and groups looking for a peaceful respite just a few hours from the metro. It has balconies that overlook the pool and the golf club. It is furnished with a cozy living room, a modern kitchen, a gorgeous bathroom with a shower, and a barbecue grill for your samgyeupsal night. For only 8,000 pesos/night, up to 6 guests can enjoy this lovely kubo.

One of my personal favourite parts of the kubo was the Master’s Bedroom. It was spotless clean with big glass window overlooking the attractive garden of the property (you can always pull down the blinds if there’s too much light). It has flatscreen HD TV and a spacious wardrobe. The mattress was good - not too hard and not too soft. I had an excellent uninterrupted night’s sleep.

Other Room Options
Although the main kubo of Casa Belinda is ideal for families and groups of 6, solo and couple travelers also have another options. The two extra rooms in the main house can accommodate up to 3 people each, which costs 4,000 pesos/night. These rooms have a private bathroom with shower, and have been decorated with modern furniture and earth colours. Just like the main kubo, these rooms have access to a veranda, which provides stunning view of the pool and the garden.  
Aside from the Modern Kubo, there are also two extra rooms open to visitors at the main house of Casa Belinda
