Jardin de Miramar’s Casa Santa – Get Your Dose of Christmas Cheer This Holiday Season
It’s only a few more days before Christmas. The air has already turned cool. Houses have already brought out their Christmas trees and parols. Simbang gabi is just around the corner. However, Christmas isn’t complete without images of that fat, jolly, old man in red popping everywhere. Santa is coming to town and we all know it.
Well, more like Santa Claus has found a home away from the North Pole. There is an entire house dedicated to him in Antipolo.
Tucked in an event venue called Jardin de Miramar, Casa Santa is home to over 3,000 Santa Claus items. It features Santa Claus in different sizes and configurations: from life size statues to tiny one-inch figurines.

You can take as many pictures as you’d like (although, for some reason, taking videos is prohibited). Most items can be inspected up close, and, in some cases, can be played with. The more valuable items are secured inside cabinets and glass displays.
One room also features a miniature Santa Village, complete with trains and “snow”.

Upstairs, more items are on display. There is a Santa-themed chess set and a balcony overlooking the first floor.

Cheerful holiday music also plays all over the house and Santa Claus hats are available to wear during your visit. And while Jardin de Marimar’s Casa Santa is open all-year-round, what better way to get into the spirit of Christmas than visiting Santa Claus’s house in Antipolo this holiday season?
