If you're considering getting a place, there's a lot of nice choices but do your homework. Consider the surrounding establishments, proximity from the main highway, and who the other homeowners are.

There's a gated neighborhood just off the highway past all the big establishments that's very woodsy and peaceful. The houses all have a log cabin theme so its very pretty. Price is unbeatable (the 3bedroom cabins are the business!).

Good luck!

Hi Martin and welcome. That's a beautiful are you chose to live in. Not to mention the Buku pies from that area. Feel free to enjoy the rest of the Philippines (or any of the other) pages and you're sure to pick up loads of info.

My Manila relatives spend weekends there sometimes and it looks nice from their FB pics. Plus I'm rethinking my original Leyte/Samar plan so a place to consider.

Martin, what's the name of that community? Is it way down a road on the left hand side?

Woodsborough - If you're headed towards Batangas, it's on the right side past the Mendez Crossing after all the big establishments.

Have to check with the wife, but that may be the place our wedding coordinator lives. (Yeah, that's where she lives.)

She "included" a free night at a place she owns so that we would be local for the wedding the next day in Calaruega. There was no stove, no microwave, no coffee pot, no dishes, and hardly any pots and pans. Oh yeah, no hot water to shower in. And the windows didn't close, so that nice cool breeze came in on me and the one sheet all night long.

At least we found a better place the next morning to stay down the road. Bali Village.

If you decide to check it out, I suggest giving the company that develops the place a call first. The number's on the website. Paul, the president, is very hands on and helpful. They usually send a guy to open up one of the cabins so you can have a look around. Plus, you don't have to deal with any agents or brokers.

Calaruega's great! Been there once. Pitty about the night before, though. No coffee in the morning would've driven me up the wall!

Anyone go to Taal Yatch Club? I don't play golf nor do I want to pay for membership, clubs, etc... Thinking sailing would be a better option. A friend mentioned that they rent out hobies. Not sure if you need to be a member or a guest of a member. Thoughts?

Thanks!

Hi Scottish and welcome,

We do have some members living and visiting down that way so you are sure to get some info on the site.
I've been down that way and it is beautiful country. Living there in most areas should be less than Metro Manila. Plus it is far less crowded and peaceful as well...


Good luck on you search for the right place.
