While the bahay kubo already offers such a cozy space for you, your friends, and your family, the rest of Sitio Gubat provides a whole lot more.

The front garden triples as a “campsite” and playground for kids! They even have fun toy cars provided to make sure the kids have just as much fun as you do. If you want to camp outside and enjoy sleeping under the stars, you can also rent and request a tent from Sitio Gubat.

There’s also a gazebo where you can enjoy the cool Tagaytay breeze while having deep conversations and drinking coffee. At night, the whole place is illuminated thanks to the bright hanging string lights all over the property.

There are so many spots for relaxation and meaningful conversations all over Sitio Gubat, but the biggest highlight is their dipping pool.

This pool, which is hidden in the back of the property, may not be big enough for laps but it definitely has its own charm! It’s like having your very own natural jacuzzi in your backyard with matching “waterfalls”—perfect for the summer heat! It’s also the perfect backdrop for your IG-worthy OOTDs.

Aside from the enchanting dipping pool, the back area of Sitio Gubat also has a bonfire area (complete with seats for roasting marshmallows or campfire songs!), a “hanging” kubo where you can enjoy the peaceful quiet with a good book, and a hammock that’s perfect for lounging around and enjoying the relaxing atmosphere of this vacation home.

In case you’re not really up for peace and quiet, you’ll probably enjoy singing the night away in their karaoke room!
