The beautiful French Villa is a strong fortress w/ many feminine attributes with the ever colorful bougainvillea plant everywhere, being one of them, to remind us of the South of France during summer with so many flowers blooming. The 180 degrees of frontal view guarantees that all three (3) suites and every part of the villa offers a magnificent view! Upon entry, you will see a bouquet of dried lavender flowers I harvested myself in France, for you to smell. Immediately feel the nerves relax from the long trip a music box that plays the most french classic "La Vie En Rose", perfect entrance to the French Villa.. Collect your welcome basket of local goods and delicacies with my personal welcome letter to you.

The Villa is intricately decorated by French and local designers, showcasing an array of furnitures and amenities made with precious & exotic local raw materials such as mother of pearls, Shagreens, and indigenous hardwoods . The stairway railing for example is made of Shagreen, an Indonesian stingray leather that can last to hundreds of years if well maintained. Please handle the villa with respect and care as this is our home we wish to pass to our children and their children, which for the meantime, we’d love to share with you.

We also have neighbors who are elderly, please refrain from making too loud noises.

We're next to the forest, please bring mosquito repellents.

Please treat our home as yours, turn of electricity, especially aircons when nobody is using it. We highly recommend turning on the ceiling fans and open the balcony doors and windows and use the screen doors to enjoy the natural chilly breeze of the mountains, you are helping the environment and your health. 😊

HEADCOUNT: The nightly rate includes 4 guests (children below 11 are free) as I have a lot of small family travelers and I make it as affordable as I can make it. However my utility cost changes every additional guests, hence the surcharge of roughly 18usd (P880) per night for the 5th adult onwards. I feel this is a reasonable amount per extra guest to help me cover in costing; aircon, beds, linens, towels, toiletries, breakfast, pool maintenance and provide better experience overall. Please book according to headcount. Airbnb allows 15 bookings here but we can accommodate till 20, just oay the extra guests in cash upon check in. Thanks for the cooperation.


SMOKING IS NOT ALLOWED IN THE VILLA, 200USD penalty. Only smoking area is in the parking, 3rd floor lanai, pool area. These 3 areas are provided with ashtrays.

SECURITY DEPOSIT- is not really a deposit. Any guest who confirms a reservation will be responsible for damages up to P100,000 though no charges or authorizations will be made unless I (host) make a claim within 14 days after you check out. Security deposit is in-placed so guests may take care of our home. We have imported a lot of our priced furnitures and we share it with you so can experience the same, please be mindful of our home especially if you have children as guests. So we may be able to share it to many more people who visits Cebu or experience our way of living. Thank you so much in advance.

We hope to host you.

Cebu City, Central Visayas, Philippines

The name Jardin de Busay is a combination of a Spanish word jardin which means garden and a Cebuano/Visayan word busay which aliterally means water falls but figuratively means source (i.e. source of life).

Jardin de Busay is located in Barangay Busay along the Cebu Transcentral Highway that sprawls along the picturesque mountains of Cebu. It is nestled in the historic mountains overlooking Mandaue City and Mactan Island. What was once the setting of the heroic “Battle of Busay” is now a refreshing and quiet neighborhood. Nature is kept at its best in Jardin de Busay as the landscape is preserved. Trees, flowers and plants stretch out through the whole place and the garden by the valley. Jardin de Busay is producing homegrown and homemade cacao tableya (tablets) in its own cacao plantation, best for the native tsokwate (chocolate drink). A must try for guests!

Truly, Jardin de Busay’s name befits itself: a garden of life at the mountains of urban Cebu.

I love to travel. There is something about being in different places, various times, breathing many lives; it's polishing my soul. I love cooking for my loved ones and gather my friends over afternoon coffee and just catch up. You would notice that my kitchen is always fully equipped and more than functional. On rare occasions I do not travel, I need a good book I can't put down and a good movie that makes me go hhmmmm at the end. I love art and travel to collect from around the world. You'd see some of my painting collections and some doodled by yours truly. What I most enjoy with traveling is finding places with charm. An abode not just with bed but identity. A place, which resembles home; where laughter filled the air, a mother made aromatic dishes, a family gathered over dinners and friends clink glasses in cheer. So I open my home to you in the hopes you will feel the same; warmth, safe and at home. Motto: Life is too short for bad coffee, uncomfortable bed and cheap wine. Live well my friend.
