Description

The space

This is the upstairs bedroom at our home, Coco's Garden.

Coco's Garden Master Bedroom Manila is the upstairs bedroom in a vintage home in a quiet corner of the Paco District of old Manila. The ceilings are tall, with windows all around looking out into the garden. Hardwood floors.

Intramuros, Ermita, Malate and Makati are a few kilometers away, and access to public transportation is easy. The Master Bedroom has its own restroom, with a sink, a toilet, and a shower (with hot water). The room is air-conditioned, with access and use of the house's kitchen and garden. The room has Cable TV and broadband wifi.

The local Robinsons mall has the usual fast-food outlets, while a little farther away at Paco Park you can find My Kitchen (Italian) and the Old Swiss Inn. If you're interested in a local cooking lesson, I can arrange a teacher (for a fee). Airport pickup/drop-off can be arranged for ($25 US each way).

Smoking is not allowed in the bedrooms, but is fine in the restrooms and the patio or garden.

Professional in-house massage by a local agency employing the blind is available.

If you need a car/driver, I may be able to assist you.

This room is not appropriate for pets.

Guest access

As our guest, you will of course have your private room and private restroom. The rest of the home is shared space, including the kitchen, the living area, and the garden/patio.

Interaction with guests

As you will be staying in our home with us, you can expect us to be available for your questions or needs related to your stay with us and your time in the Philippines.

The neighborhood

Ours is an historical neighborhood dating back to the arrival of Japanese expatriate Catholics in the early 17th-century. In the years prior to WW2, Paco was the part of Manila where artists and some wealthier families lived on large properties. Lumber yards proliferated, and some manufacturing was done. The face of Paco has changed mightily over the years, but vestiges of the old Paco can be found by the intrepid explorer. Intramuros/Malate/Ermita are nearby.

Getting around

We are located near a major intersection where Jeepneys and taxis can be had.

Other things to note

We have 5 dogs and 3 cats, all of whom will seek your attention. They all live in the garden.


House Rules
Not suitable for pets
May not be safe or suitable for children (0-12 years)
Check in is anytime after 12PM (noon)

1. Electricity: The Philippines has among the highest electricity rates in Asia, so please help us to conserve.
2. Air conditioning: Please do close the windows well, and if you leave the house for the day, please turn off the a/c. Using the fans will help circulate the cool air.
3. Food/trash: Do not put any food or degradable materials in the trash bin as this attracts insects. These types of waste can be left at the kitchen sink for disposal.
4. Shoes: Please leave your street shoes at the downstairs entrance. We do not allow street shoes in the house.
5. Smoking is allowed in the restrooms, screened patio, and garden.
6. Please do not feed the cats or the dogs (without our approval)
7. Unregistered daytime guests are welcomed, but unregistered overnight guests are discouraged.
8. If you have any valuables that you would like to have secured, please let us know.
9. This bedroom has a thin hardwood floor, so heavy footsteps and excessive TV volume carry to the guestroom. Please be mindful and considerate of the downstairs guest.

Has got to be one of the most beautiful houses I've stayed at in the city. We're from town not far away but it was well worth it staying at Greg's. Greg's a fantastic host, gave us a lot of insider tips that we were able to use and enjoy! Highly recommended. Will definitely return!

What a unique place to stay in Manila. Absolutely gorgeous old style home. The room is massive with high ceilings, something you just don't see in Manila anymore. Historic, classic Spanish feel. The noise levels were lower than the main streets. It's a private room on the second floor. Greg was a welcoming and helpful host. Highly recommend, and will likely stay again!

Manila has been my home since 1988, though my first Philippine travels were in Mindanao starting in 1983. Since then, I've travelled all but 6 of the Philippine's 81 provinces.

The city of Manila has changed tremendously in recent decades, and there are few homes like ours left. The house dates from 1947 and is in a quiet and hidden older neighborhood of Paco, Manila. It's furnished mostly with antique and vintage local furnishings.

Rizal Park and Intramuros are a 45 minute walk away. Makati is 15 minutes away by car.

Traveling in the Philippines can be challenging but always fulfilling. I have friends operating tours/accommodations around the country, so let me know where you're going and maybe i know someone there (e.g., Boracay, Bohol, Tubbataha, El Nido/Coron Dumaguete).

I am a part-time guide in the historical district of Intramuros and Binondo-Quiapo. My partner, Jorge, and I have 5 dogs and 3 cats.
