Información sobre este anuncio
Breathtaking views of lake, volcano island, and sunset from a one-room bamboo treehouse that fits two comfortably in a single queen-sized bed. Lots of surrounding plants and trees, with fruits and vegetables harvested locally. Meals prepared by village chef. Solar-powered property is embedded in friendly fishing community and small town. Natural pool only meters away. Feels remote but nearest mall is only 30 min away by car. A favorite place for marriage proposals.
Treehouse made by a master craftsman rests solidly on two trees (one ficus and one mahogany), buttressed by steel pipes with clamps that are adjustable as the trees grow. Fireflies and small birds are occasional visitors inside. Quirky sink with running water. Outdoor shower hidden in plants under the treehouse. Twist the bamboo pole to turn on the shower. Indoor toilet/shower is 30 meters away with a water recycling system so that graywater is cleansed for watering the garden. Biodegradable soap only please, available on site. The property has its own deep well and nearly 100 percent of electricity comes from the sun. View changes by the season as the mood of the lake and river changes the shoreline. Please bear with occasional celebrations in the neighborhood when residents channel torch singers on karaoke. There is a rich biodiversity on the property – birds, bats, frogs, fireflies, dragonflies, lizards, lots of plants and trees, harmless bugs, in addition to a horse and the resident friendly Labrador, Howser – all bark, no bite. He has gotten his shots. Mosquitoes are few and seasonal; we have mosquito nets.
Servicios y zonas comunes
The main house is private but if the sociable owners are in, you are likely to be invited in (living and dining room has no walls, after all). We have on request mattresses, umbrellas, mosquito nets, and blankets. Native Batangas fare can be ordered such as barako coffee, tawilis, pako salad, sinaing na tulingan, crispy biya and suman. Vegetarian or vegan options available. Kayaks can be rented at the Pusod conservation center next door for PhP300/half day for the tandem, P250/half day for the single. Look for Warren.
Atención a los huéspedes
Locals/neighbors are often on hand to chat. If the treehouse is occupied, curtained huts with fans are also for rent for a little less. Since it is a treehouse, there may be encounters with harmless geckos or lizards. Wildlife may leave traces; please inform staff for prompt cleanup. Alternatives to Ka Betty's 5-course meals (P250) are a few minutes walk away in Balete town across the bridge.
Otros aspectos destacables
These are rustic accommodations, and you might find other Taal Lakeshore lodgings with more amenities. But we like to think our place makes up for it in charm and new knowledge about the natural world and the way people can interact with it. Right next door is the Pusod Taal Lake Conservation Center.
We have biodegradable soap for sale in case you forget yours. We take containers back for recycling.
This is a treehouse that kids can enjoy but please ensure you watch your kids at all times. The windows do not have screens in order to optimize the view. There are guard rails but remember that active kids can climb these or explore areas where they may slip. Booking with us indicates that you will be responsible for your children and will watch them closely as we do not have staff to do so. Do not leave them alone in the water garden. We have CCTV cameras on the grounds for your security.
We do not recommend taking public transport to the site at night so if you are travelling to the treehouse at night or if a delayed flight causes you to travel there in the dark, kindly call us so we can arrange for private transport (P500 from Lipa or Mataasnakahoy).
Please turn off all unnecessary lights and delight in moonlight that may reflect on the lake. And only in the dark can you truly appreciate the enchanting flashing of fireflies around the balete and talisay trees.
No smoking in the whole property (including shisha, and e-cigs) even in the outdoor areas, bathrooms, etc. We highly encourage that you bring your trash back with you as there is no municipal collection in this area. We encourage that you mix with the locals and treat them with respect, they have interesting stories to tell. Ka Betty provides the food independently of the owner so please direct all questions and transactions about food to her. Pls use only biodegradable soap in the shower and sink under the treehouse and near the pool, other types of soap may harm plants. Alcoholic drinks are not prohibited but we ask that guests drink moderately and NOT SMOKE. Cooking is allowed but not in the treehouse, only on the concrete table in the boathouse. Bringing in food is also allowed but take back all non-biodegradable trash. Kapusod is in the Taal Volcano Protected Landscape, a protected area managed by a Protected Area Superintendent and in which regulations exist to protect the site. Please follow rules and regulations and check out the TVPL Management Plan at Pusod TLCC (they sell that for P300, very enlightening). We really like the serenity here so if you plan to bring or make loud music or other noise, may we ask that you book elsewhere? Soft to medium music for your immediate surroundings are okay.

We are a family of three, husband and wife are interested in books, nature, bikes, arts and culture, history and sometimes even politics. The 14 year old is interested in these things as well but remains in a constant state of denial.
