The dog days are far from over and we’re pretty sure you’re itching for a getaway in the soonest time possible. If staying in beach resorts has become an overrated family tradition, you might want to look into vacation houses for a different kind of summer staycation.
The island of Cebu surprisingly has a good number of summer homes tucked within the highlands of the Queen City.
So if you’re planning a sweet summer escape but with no certain destination, worry not as we’re listing three vacation houses that you’d want to consider staying in.
The Fog House
As the name of the vacation house suggests, it’s inspired by the natural scene of the place. The Fog House is situated in Taptap, Cebu City where the villa is nestled within mountains and trees.
This exclusive house provides impressive amenities and facilities for guests’ delight that make for the perfect space to relax and rejuvenate with the family or barkada.
Its infinity pool with pressure jets, karaoke machine, cable television, two huge living rooms, two kitchens and a spa bed with in-house massage therapist among many other features are enough to call The Fog House your next summer getaway.
Tucked far away from the beaches of Cebu but surrounded with nature’s wonders in the uplands of Barangay Adlaon, Cebu City is Rancio Cancio. It’s a privately owned rest house that’s the most suitable choice for families and friends to spend quality time together minus the distractions.
Rancho Cancio’s magnificent mountain view is an added bonus to what the entire house has to offer. The place provides spacious rooms, fully equipped kitchens, a living room area with a homey atmosphere and other facilities and amenities that are useful for guests at leisure.
The best feature of the rest house? An infinity pool with a breathtaking backdrop.
Sileo Bed and Breakfast
Settled quietly atop the mountains of Balamban is Sileo Bed and Breakfast. It’s the ideal summer home setup for those who wish to have a little piece of tranquility that’s just 34 kilometers away from the bustling main city.
This sprawling modern abode is beautifully designed with its rustic and minimalist theme that gives off a relaxing and open ambience. Aside from the accommodation’s generous amenities, Sileo also has a wide range of facilities that guests can enjoy during their stay.
Where the searing sun shines its brightest but tamed by the fresh mountain breeze, Sileo Bed and Breakfast is your ultimate weekend respite.
