Holiday Rental House
Built by the son of the third President of the Philippines, this original Baguio style house is located just a stone's throw away from Burnham Park, perfect for families to just walk down the street to enjoy the park's attractions. During the American Colonial period, this house served as a haven from politics as my grandfather and his children would take long walks down the street to their favorite park, far from the campaign trail that they still go on to this day. Designed by my grandmother, a flower enthusiast, the house is designed in such a way that you will be able to enjoy the huge garden from every room. The rooms themselves are high ceilinged and very spacious, with original beds dating back to the creation of the house, and has since provided comfort to a Philippine senator, Ce...Built by the son of the third President of the Philippines, this original Baguio style house is located just a stone's throw away from Burnham Park, perfect for families to just walk down the street to enjoy the park's attractions. During the American Colonial period, this house served as a haven from politics as my grandfather and his children would take long walks down the street to their favorite park, far from the campaign trail that they still go on to this day. Designed by my grandmother, a flower enthusiast, the house is designed in such a way that you will be able to enjoy the huge garden from every room. The rooms themselves are high ceilinged and very spacious, with original beds dating back to the creation of the house, and has since provided comfort to a Philippine senator, Cebuano mayor, and an international socialite. Every room is attached to a shared bathroom as an homage to the time in history when families felt that such arrangements would elicit a feeling of companionship and community in the house. My grandparents were avid readers which is why the living room and master's bedroom have a wide selection of books you can peruse and read anywhere in the house. Some are first edition classics and still in their original condition. As avid foodies and people who enjoy cooking for their families, we're lucky that not only is the kitchen designed in such a way that you can prepare a lovely homemade meal while enjoying the view of the garden, but also, the location of the house is such that if you feel like dining out, you can easily do so as there are a wide range of restaurants in the area that very easy to walk to. But why eat out when you can take home food and dine in the dining room that lets you appreciate the gorgeous view of the garden from both sides of the house?More

About the neighbourhood
Located at the heart of the city, the house is a one minute walk away from Burnham Park, Baguio's premiere tourist spot. It has a playground, bike riding ring, roller skating rink, boat rides, zumba/wushu, and picnic areas for those who want to enjoy the crisp Baguio air in a relaxed manner. It's also near the City Library, and Athletic Bowl- where you can swim, play tennis, badminton, and run along the tartan track. Yummy and affordable restuarant on the other side of Burnham Park include Beggang, Kare2, Dinuguan, Inihaw, Bulalo, etc. It's a ten to twenty minute walk to the City Market, and a ten minute walk to the middle of Session Road. It's a five minute walk to Harrison, the road parallel to Session Road where they have Ukay-Ukay
Getting around
The main road is just to the right of the house, so you'll be able to catch jeeps and taxis very easily.
