A getaway rest house with amazing mountaintop views of Bataan, Zambales, even Manila Bay. Enjoy the infinity pool by day and the cool breeze at night. 30 mins away from Balanga City, Mt. Samat, or Subic. 45 mins away from Bagac beaches such as Montemar and Las Casas.
The mountains of Tala are considered the Baguio of Bataan. A cool alternative for the Summer.
This gated rest house has plenty of room for a group of 10 or a spacious retreat for two. It was built as a place to unwind and unplug. Designed by the owner herself, it is influenced by Balinese design with wood and stained glass details.
It's very quiet away from roadside noises. Beautiful sunrise and sunset. With a starry view at night.

Interaction with guests
I manage this account for my mother, Mayor Gene dela Fuente. I will be corresponding from NYC, but she will be in touch with you when checking in on the day of the reservation.
Also there is a caretaker (Mang Eddie) that lives slightly off-premise that will be there for any questions or needs that may arise.
Other things to note
Plan ahead when it comes to food and gas. There are no nearby grocery stores or gasoline stations in the mountain.
Also the house is very open. And since it's in the forest, bugs tend to come in the house. There are nets and screened windows. But in the rainy season, it's hard to keep them out. We tend to just embrace them as part of the environment.
Just a reminder, this is not a hotel. It is someone's home. Please treat it with respect. Don't steal towels or whatever. Leave it how you found it and you will get glowing reviews. Or else the wrath of airbnb is upon you.
