LOCATION: MAKATI, PHILIPPINES
Our bestie staycation in the beautifully restored colonial gem that is La Casita, Bed and Breakfast…
Tucked quietly behind the bustling Poblacion area which is more known for its sports bar and entertainment venues, La Casita Mercedes is a rare find. La Casita offers a bed and breakfast experience that truly feels like home away from home. This restored colonial house is fitted with tasteful decor and antiques that pull you back in time, making you feel that you’ve decided to stay with an old friend and not at a hotel – which is exactly what I loved about it. I spent a good amount of time taking mental notes for my dream house (note: the spiral staircase is enough to make you swoon, and don’t even get me started on the outdoor terrace). My good friend Val and I hadn’t caught up in a while and I thought an all girls staycation was in order. Lounging about in the main quarters and giving belly rubs to the owner’s friendly labrador Sam, we chatted and giggled while the friendly staff accommodated all our needs.
Special thanks to La Casita’s management for making our stay such an enjoyable one and to Agoda.com who dealt with my booking in a snap and made the whole process a breeze. View the agoda listing of La Casita here.
Until the next #TwinnieStayCation!
