tranquility at t house

Published August 2, 2014 by ladyemelye

whenever we are in need of a quick getaway from work and other stress, we always opt for a tagaytay staycation.  and one of our favorite places to stay in is t house.

we have been going to this place way back 2007.  we used to avail of their set dinner which included 2 choices of soup (served in cute shot glasses), a salad, an entree, dessert and drinks.  this is no longer being offered.

almost once a year, we have an overnight stay in this very cozy bread and breakfast place.  here are some of our stays:

we have been frequenting the place, that most of the staff already recognizes us. 😉

last june, in celebration of their 7th year annivesary, they had a promo where you only had to add php 7.00 on top of your room rate and you will get a set meal for two and a massage for two.  we decided to have this as our post father’s day celebration.

upon checking in, we were informed by the front desk that there was some kind of conference that was going on and they were occupying the regular rooms (which we always book).  because of this, we were upgraded to stay in a suite, free of charge. 😀

aside from having a very large room space, there was also a sofa.  in the bathroom we had the usual toilet and bath area plus a bath tub where the little boy enjoyed taking a bath.  t house also now has a swimming pool but we haven’t had checked it out yet.

here is the set menu which was included in the promo.  we availed it during dinner of our first day.

breakfast is always included in the room rate and you get to choose from a wide range of items available.  i usually go for the spanish-style tawilis, but unfortunately it was not available that time.  also included are bread basket with butter, seasonal fruits and your choice of coffee or fresh juice.

one the things i look forward to, in all of our stays at t house, is the goodnight tea.  they deliver to your room an herbal tea together with some pastries. 🙂

the massage included in the promo is also good.  the therapists are very good in kneading out the stress in our bodies and i felt very relaxed thereafter.

another thing that i like about t house is their set of green tea + honey toiletries which they source locally from ilog maria.  i just love the refreshing smell of it.

if you are looking for a place to unwind, with nice surroundings and good food, t house is definitely worth checking out.

holy week 2010 destinations #1 – casa san pablo

Published May 3, 2010 by ladyemelye
for the holy week of 2010, we decided to go south and explore san pablo city in laguna.
since it was already holy thursday when we travelled, the traffic was heavy at the south luzon express way. the owner was even kind enough to meet us in the way since we took the unusual route.
after around 3-4 hours, and several stops, we finally arrived at casa san pablo, our first destination.

 

 

 

 

 

who would have thought that a retreat like this existed in the middle of the city? located inside the former kay inay resort, this is a place for those who wants a quick escape from the noise of the city.

the compound consisted of several rooms of varying sizes (it could accommodate different number of guests), a swimming pool, a large sprawling ground, and a dining area.

the room given to us was number 11. it was a medium-sized room with a loft, and two air-conditioning units. it had four single beds in the main room, and 4 single mattresses and a double mattress in the loft. there were also two showers and two toilets.
food was also good at the casa. based on the literature that you can find in the dining area, the food served were based on the menu and pairings that their Inay used to serve. dishes complimented with one another.
the different colored plates were a delight. i used a different plate each time i ate. ^_^
there were also a lot of unique old stuff around the house. there was this old scooter and a pig made of hay (i think).
we also tried out the swimming pool. the water was nice and cold since it came from the springs in the mountain.
during night, mats were lay down on the ground and candles were placed. one could hang out here and even do star gazing. the owner, mr. boots alcantara, even had a chat with us and shared stories and anecdotes about the place.
overall, we enjoyed our stay here. Boots was very accommodating and was really warm in welcoming the guests. once here, you will forget that you are in fact still in the city.
the price was fair too. to reserve, you have to contact Boots so that you would know if the place is still available on your preferred date, and then deposit your payment so that your slot will be secured.
