Airbnb stay: Tagaytay condo overlooking Taal

, , ,

I spent my birthday weekend with my family at this unit in Citiland Tagaytay Prime Residences. It’s our second time staying at the same condo building and we’re always delighted with our bookings! I was supposed to book a place at Serin West but none of the bnb’s I like are available on my birthday.

Of course, I was taken by the photos on the Airbnb page, I’m a sucker for great interiors and high floors with nice views, and while this unit isn’t the best in terms of furnishings, it’s incredibly bright and looks immaculately clean. And so we’re in.
And indeed!
The view is amazing. The unit has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. In total there are 3 balconies. The master’s is facing Taal lake and the rest is facing the city. It’s a corner unit too so there are a lot of windows. I love it!
The unit is big, spacious, and very well lit. The living and dining could be updated but because the place is so spacious, it doesn’t look too bad.
They have a TV but it’s not equipped with cable and the unit doesn’t have wifi (it does have TV Plus but it’s crappy). For that reason I brought my laptop, HDMI cable, hard disk with movies, and my Globe at Home Prepaid Wifi unit (in case Globe signal is strong — it wasn’t).
The kitchen is small but it’s stocked alright with everything we need – mugs, plates, utensils, electric kettle, microwave. The ref is big too! My parents had to bring a rice cooker though because hahaha we’re a family who likes to bring baon and prep food during outings lol.
Now we go to the bedrooms!
The master’s is big enough and the view is really stunning. I guess I’ll never get tired of a lush scenery. The wind is fresh and the nights are very cold!
The other bedroom is smaller with 2 single beds, but man it has windows all around.
We’re a family of 5 and I could say the unit is only good for 4 people. My sister had to sleep on the couch but it’s very comfy naman so I guess it’s okay for 5 na rin haha.
Citiland Tagaytay Prime Residences is also very centrally located. There’s a McDonald’s right across the building, a 7-Eleven on the ground floor, and it’s only a few meters away from Tagaytay Rotunda where you’ll never get hungry. There’s Fora Filinvest and Ayala Serin Mall close by. Urgh, best place to be, unless you’re craving for a more nature-filled retreat hehe. I’m always afraid of exploring places outside the highway. I feel like I’m gonna plunge too deep into the town and that the car wouldn’t be able to bear the uphill trek back to the city center. Yun talaga issue ko hahahaha.
There you go! I left a nice feedback for this unit so if you’re looking for a 2 bedroom in Tagaytay with a great view, you may want to consider this place. The hosts are so nice they even allowed us to check-in early. They also provide 1 reserved parking slot and if there’s a need for another you could use the condo’s guest parking. The unit is worth ₱3,000/night but the rates depend on the season. 🙂
