The Space

A Place you can call HOME...

Enjoy a perfect escape from the city's hustle and bustle in "The Garden Room."

The Garden Room is situated in the lower floor of our house with its own entrance, toilet&bath and small covered kitchenette. Located in the mountains of Busay, you will enjoy a picturesque view of the City of Cebu.

It has a total area of 30 sq-mtr including the toilet&bath and small kitchenette. The room itself has an area of 15 sq-mtrs. The room is furnished with air-conditioning, WIFI, cable TV, refrigerator, microwave, water kettle and hot water system.

It is located within a gated community. You will enjoy an environment conducive for jogging and strolling -- garden by the valley is waiting to be discovered.

Despite being only 5 kms away from the nearest mall, public transportation like jeepneys are LIMITED from the unit. Jeepneys are available 300 meters from the unit but are only available from 6:00AM-8:30AM (city-bound) and 4:00PM-6:00PM (home-bound).

If you are the adventurous type, you can backride in motorcycles which locals call the "habal-habal" for as low as Php40.00 per way. Cabs/taxis can be requested to pick you up from the unit to the city with an additional of $1-2 on top of the taxi meter. Going up from the city to unit is not a problem with the same $1-2 additional cost to the meter. We also have a private pick-up truck that can be hired for the day.

We serve breakfast for at least Php180. Please understand that we have to specially prepare for you. Please tell us the day before if you are getting the breakfast so that we can prepare them to your satisfaction.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My husband and I wanted to have a quiet and relaxing post valentine's day weekend. Christine's place is the perfect choice. Apart from the beautiful scenery, Tata and Edward made our stay worry-free. Although Christine was not able to meet us, she was very patient in answering all our questions and requests and made sure we were taken cared of... Just too bad we only booked for a night. For sure in our next visit, we'll be staying longer...

  • Christine and her family were so nice and her house is gorgeous.
    Away from the city, it's like an oasis.
    I'd like to stay again if I visit cebu next time.

  • Christine was a great communicator before I arrived to help insure my stay went smoothly since I was only there for one night. That's really important to me. Her place is up in the hills outside of Cebu city proper which allows you to get a different perspective of the place and a good nights sleep since it's really quiet unlike many parts of the phi. The room was clean. The bed super comfortable. And there is even a hot water shower which is nice. If you have time when passing thru Cebu give this place a try, you'll like it

  • The room title totally fits the place, even too humble for this magnificant peaceful environment. I am super super happy to have found this place! For my 4 years constant visit to Cebu, this is an instant peace land from the city (only a 10 - 15 minutes drive from Lahug town up to the neighbourhood in the mountain). Garden Room is the 7 star suite, with its own kitchen and toilet. A complete forest right at the window. What's more important for a good stay is the hostesses. Thank you Christine, auntie and uncle, Tata and everyone who work to make Casa Mari and Jardin De Busay such a paradise. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place with us and friends, chatting under the stars, walking into the fruitful valley garden. The experience is just beyond words, I guess a mixtape of a few tracks might do a good comment!

  • セブの高台にある高級住宅地にある立派な家です。部屋の前の庭からのセブの町の見晴らしがすばらしいです。 ホストのChristineは大変親切でした。難点は公共交通手段で、もともと運転手付きの車を持つ人たちの住んでいるところなので、旅行者が簡単に町へという訳にはいきません。 それでも時間に余裕のあり、現地で困難を乗り越える勇気のある方は是非行ってみてください。
    It is a wonderful house in a subdibidion for wealthy people up on the hill of Cebu City from where you can see a very nice view of day and night. Host Christine is very helpful and friendly. You would have a lot of help from her more than you expect. The problem is transportation between the house and Cebu downtown. It is better to rent a motorcycle

  • Just returned home to Gilbert, Arizona USA after spending 20 fantastic days in the Garden Room at Jardin de Busay. This is the most fantastic place that you will ever want to stay. The views from the garden are to die for. City lights at night, ocean and tropical greenery for as far as the eyes can see during the day. My wife and I sat in the garden every morning drinking coffee & tea, watching the Koi fish in the pond and listening to the different birds and animals in the distance.

    Our hosts, Cassie, Emma, Christine and Tata are the nicest people you will ever meet. They made us feel like their home was our home. If you’re planning a trip to Cebu City, you must stay at their place. And, if you are worrying about transportation down the mountain to Cebu City you need not worry. Your hosts will make sure you have transportation.

    Thank you Cassie, Emma, Christine and Tata for the wonderful experience. We will be back.

  • From my initial correspondence with Christine right until I left to continue my travels, she was so amazingly helpful, warm, friendly & hospitable. Nothing was too much trouble for her or her family. The rooms are even better than the images with all the faculties one could require & the location is fantastic. Just far enough out of the city, with awesome views & tranquility but close enough to everything. Christine can arrange everything from reliable taxis to bike rentals, trip advice & how to get to & from anywhere in the Philippines.
    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Busay and highly recommended it to anyone travelling to Cebu. I will definitely be back.

  • We definitely had a sweet escape at the garden room.. We have a million dollar view from our room, the place is really clean and the host family is just awesome.. Very,very nice people, we truly felt at home staying with them.. The property is located in picturesque lower Busay, a short taxi ride from Cebu City. The view is just breath-taking.. It is a well- hidden paradise!!!

    I truly recommend this place, we been travelling all over the world but this place is just magnificent! 10 stars rating!!!

    To Christine and to her family, thanks you guys very much, you made our stay so enjoyable and relaxing. Looking forward to staying with you again in the near future..

  • Un endroit et une famille magnifique! Une trêve au milieu d'un écrin de verdure gigantesque, vue sur la mer et la ville, just magic!

    July 2013
  • The location is very quiet and scenic and close to the city as long as you have a motorcycle but it's a bit of a drive. Worth it to get away from the noise and pollution in the city. Christine is very helpful helping me to plan things. Tata brought me fruits. They are growing cacao trees and I had some of there chocolate drink often. The location is good but also the downside is it will take some time to leave and come back to the place.
