Explore Rizal: Lily Vacation Farm House


There are many places that one can visit in the province of Rizal. Even those not particularly outdoorsy will find the mountain and lake views charming. Because of its proximity to Manila, tourists abound the municipalities of Rizal- a green province that offers a relaxing experience and a myriad of activities.

I have personally frequented Tanay and Antipolo in Rizal. Just recently, I was back again in this 1st class province in the South, this time in Jala-jala, to experience Lily Vacation Farm House. (Check also my Batlag Falls and Daranak Falls experience.)

It was my first time to have heard of the place and I was eager to know what this place has to offer. It was some 40-minute drive from Tanay to Jala-jala. As soon as we entered the door, I knew I'm in for a treat!

LILY VACATION FARM HOUSE


This paradise is tucked in the quaint municipality of Jala-jala, Rizal. The 16,000 sqm property has a big house with 3 air-conditioned rooms, a hydro-color pool and offers a majestic view of Laguna de Bay, Mt. Banahaw and Mt. Makiling.

THE HOUSE

For some, the idea of a farm house meant basic accommodations and rustic charm. Nowadays, one can still have that bucolic setting and have the style and amenities like that of a hotel.

Lily Vacation Farm House has 3 air-conditioned rooms, enough to accommodate at least 25 people. The rooms evoke a sense of peace and calm. It has nice beds with super soft mattresses. The rooms have TV- perfect for binge watching. They are connected to a spacious toilet and bath with hot and cold shower. 



The living room offers a nice view of the pool and the bay. It has charming interiors and each corner is Instagram-worthy. There's also a kitchen and dining area. Cook a sumptuous meal and give in to that craving! Guests can use their fully-equipped kitchen and there's no corkage for food and drinks!


AMENITIES

For the aquaholic and for those who prefers something less salty, the pool invites the guests for a cold dip. Various recreational activities- they have a videoke machine!- are available to make one's stay more fun and memorable.



I immediately tried the ATV ride. Too bad, I missed the horse-back ride. Will definitely try that one when I come back. They also have a half basketball court.


If there's something I really like about this place, it is the colossal greens. Big trees and bed of grass add a verdant feel.  

I woke up with a morning as quiet as a nun breathless in adoration. Clouds like the petals of a rose, the sunbeam radiating in the bay-glistening like a thread of gold- priceless! 




AS NIGHT CRAWLS

The hues of heaven as night crawl are gorgeous. The stars in the sky flashed with the brilliancy of a well-cut jewel. 

The cold wind sent shivers to our spine and a bonfire was a perfect idea! They even organize an outdoor movie night. What can get better than that? :)


And of course, a great party is never complete without some good food, nice bottle of drinks, games and videoke! You can tell we really had a blast!
