The Space

Two rooms in a house in Sta Rosa City, Laguna. One room has a queen size bed and the other two single size beds.

Both bedrooms have air-conditioning and share a common bathroom which is connected from one of the rooms.

Across the main road, just outside the village, is a commercial complex with banks, restaurants shops and a transport terminal. There is a supermarket right outside the village as well.

Arrangements can be made for transfer to/from the airport in Manila (NAIA) with advanced notice.

Guest Access

Guests are free to use the kitchen and dining room. Guests with cars may park at the garage. Access to the wifi with broadband Internet access is available.

There is another bathroom in the first floor which may be used by guests.

Interaction with Guests

I am usually out for most of the day but work from home on some days.

Guests would usually have the house all to themselves.

The Neighborhood

The village is very safe and is situated alongside a quiet hight tech industrial park. The neighborhood is is patrolled by security personnel 24/7. The property is nearly just beside a gate with a guardhouse.

The community received awards for being the cleanest among the other communities around the area.

Also available is an olympic size swimming pool, a tennis court, basketball court, and a library with wifi at the clubhouse.

Getting around

Just outside the neighborhood is a bus stop for a non-stop route to Makati City (central business district) and Manila. Trips are three times daily in the morning.

  • JP is a great host. I told him that I wanted total privacy and he just met me with the key and I had the whole place to myself. It was a great place upstairs with lots of room and I slept like a baby for three nights. You can actually walk to Paseo from his house and the neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet. I will definitely stay there again when I am in santa rosa.

  • JP's homestay is such an excellent place for rest and (website hidden) was very warm, courteous and friendly. He answered inquiries promptly & made us feel at home. He even let my sons borrow his X-Box, so I am gratefuI he made them happy. The house is clean, quiet, very comfortable with complete amenities including free use of the kitchen facilities, air-conditioned rooms and hot shower with a strong water stream. A friendly housekeeper comes over for cleaning. And a gardener comes daily to maintain the garden & patio. It's located in the high end community of Sta Rosa, Laguna. Walking distance from expensive schools and high end amenities in the area. The subdivision park is just a short block away from the house, with a playground, swimming pool, library with wifi, basketeball and tennis courts, walking trail and clubhouse. The whole subdivision are american standard homes, with lots of trees and excellent maintenance & security. Has an american suburbian feel. The subdivision is right next door to a gasoline station with a 7-11, and just across the street from a high end outlet mall with plenty of international cuisine, famous restaurants, even a starbucks! The area is so peaceful and well-secured. We felt safe walking around even at night. There are lots of foreign expats living in the area. It's a ride away from the famous hot springs resorts and from the touristy area of Taal Lake & Volcano. Just a 30 minute bus ride to Manila, it's easy to hop on a bus anytime to do what I want in Manila and come back home to the suburbs stress-free. 3 airconditioned luxury buses depart from the outlet mall just in front of the subdivision gate every morning. I would stay at JP's homestay again next time I visit the Philippines. It's more fun and more relaxing than being in the main metro area. Great value for money! Highly recommended!
